If You Had to Choose
« on: March 12, 2004, 04:03 PM »
Just something I was thinking about this afternoon....although this is a tough question for me, if you had to put away/sell, etc. your modern collection, and could only keep 12 figures, 1 beast/deluxe, 1 small-scale ship, and 1 large ship, which ones would you choose?  Would you go by which figures you think are the best done, your favorite characters, the most iconic characters?  Just curious which ones you would choose for yourself, from POTF2, POTJ, Episode I, or Saga.  I'll leave OTC and VOTC off for now, because I think many of us (including me) would choose some of those VOTC figures, but since they aren't out yet...we'll just leave it at the current releases (even if you don't have them yet, you can go by online pics if you like).  For me, I would probably go by the main characters, or favorites...just if I had to limit my display to this many only.  I'd also go with all OT characters I think, just because they are more appealing to me.

Figures:
1.  POTJ Han Solo - Bespin Capture
2.  Saga Chewbacca - Cloud City Escape
3.  Saga Darth Vader - Masters of the Darkside Repack/Death Star Clash
4.  Saga R2-D2 - Jabba's Sail Barge
5.  Saga Luke Skywalker - Jabba's Palace
6.  POTJ Boba Fett - 300th
7.  POTF2 Commtech Stormtrooper
8.  Saga Yoda - Jedi Master (would rather take one of the upcoming OTC/VOTC versions though)
9.  POTJ Ben "Obi-Wan" Kenobi
10.  A version of C-3PO (I only have the shiny gold POTF2 version, and the Escape Pod one, neither is great...would rather, again, have VOTC version)
11.  POTJ Princess Leia - Bespin Escape
12.  Saga Lando Calrissian - Skiff Guard Disguise

Beast/Deluxe:
1. Saga Ultra Jabba the Hutt or possibly Ultra Wampa

Small-scale Ship:
1. Saga Landspeeder

Large Ship:
1. POTF2 Millennium Falcon

Personally, I don't have all of these items (Lando, Jabba), but if I could only have a small, one shelf display...these are the ones I would choose.  Of course, if we're talking future figures, I'd take probably the entire VOTC collection for the figures, and leave the others the same.  Sorry if this is a stupid question, our servers at work are having troubles, so I've been just sitting and thinking :P.

Nasty question:

I just turned around a looked at my figures on display.  Lots of tough choices so I just looked and thought of what I wouldn't want to part with.  I was suprised when it was done.  I expected mostly imperials with representation from snowtroopers, scouttroopers, AT-AT folks, stormies, etc.  I love the 300th Fett as well, but it just didn't make the list because I could live without it.  

1. RH Vader (POTF2)
2. Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi (Flashback)
3. Sandtrooper (POTJ)
4. Tarkin (POTF2)
5. R2-Q5
6. R2-B1
7. R2-__ (red R2 from Amidala's ship)
8. Tie Fighter Pilot (not sure which, have yet to see new)
9. Red ARC trooper
10. Jedi Luke (vintage)
11. Hoth Han (new - brown)
12. Ephant Mon (just too huge to pass up)

Beast/Deluxe
Bantha with Tusken Raider (such a funny beast and I get a bonus figure out of it :P)

Small scale ship
Tie Interceptor

Large Ship
Imperial Shuttle
Minivans: a sign of the apocalypse.
