Episode II Multiples: Your Favorite Version?
« on: March 25, 2004, 02:30 PM »
I have been looking over my figure display, and I have noticed (particularly with the Episode II figures) how many multiple versions I have displayed of the same characters.  I have been thinking about packing a few away, just to save some space.  I was curious what some of your favorites were, of the different versions available of these characters:

Obi-Wan Kenobi
Coruscant Chase (2002)
Jedi Starfighter Pilot (2002)
Acklay Battle (2003)
Outlander Nightclub Encounter (2003)
Force Flipping Deluxe (2002)
Kamino Showdown Deluxe (2003/2004)
Clone Wars (2003)

Anakin Skywalker
Peasant Disguise (2002)
Hanger Duel (2002)
Tatooine Attack (2002)
Secret Ceremony (2003)
w/Geonosian Warrior Deluxe (2002)
Force Flipping Deluxe (2002)
w/Swoop Bike (2003)
Clone Wars (2003)

Jango Fett
Preview Figure POTJ (2002)
Kamino Escape (2002)
Final Battle (2002)
Slave 1 Pilot (2002)
Deluxe Version (2002)
Kamino Showdown Deluxe (2003/2004)

Mace Windu
Geonosian Rescue (2002)
w/Battle Droid Deluxe (2002)
Arena Confrontation (2003)
from Jedi Council Pack (2003)
Clone Wars (2003)

Yoda
Jedi Master (2002)
Jedi High Council (2002)
w/Chian 2 pack (2003)
w/Super Battle Droid Deluxe (2002)
Clone Wars (2003)

Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus
Dark Lord (2002)
Force Flipping Deluxe (2002)
Geonosian Escape (2003)
w/Swoop Bike (2003)
from Geonosian War Room pack (2003)

Zam Wessell
Preview POTJ (2002)
Bounty Hunter (2002)

R2-D2
Coruscant Sentry (2002)
Droid Factory Flight (2003)

C-3PO
w/Removable Panels (2002)
Droid Factor Deluxe (2002)

Clonetrooper
Preview POTJ (2002)
Red (2002)
w/Speeder Bike Deluxe (2002)
3-packs (2003)
Gunship Pilot (2002)
Clone Wars Super Articulated (2003)

Ok, you can really never have enough Clonetroopers I guess, so that one probably doesn't count.  I personally don't have all of these figures (force flippers, Anakin/Dooku w/bikes, R2 Droid Factory Flight, etc.)...but which version do you prefer the best of these...or who do you think could still use a "good" version?  I didn't include Padme on this list, since most of her figures are in different outfits...although I guess the Outlander Peasant Anakin is different as well.  Anyways, just curious as to some of your opinions on these figures.

Oh, by the way, here's my choices:

Obi-Wan Kenobi - Outlander Nightclub Encounter (except I gave him Coruscant Chase's lightsaber)

Anakin Skywalker - I suppose Secret Ceremony, although I don't really mind the Hangar Duel one either (except the wrist and magnet on mine are both loose/weak)

Jango Fett - Probably Kamino Escape, although I kind of like how the preview one looks as well.  KE is a better "basic" version, with the removable helmet, etc.

Mace Windu - None are the best, but probably the Jedi Council one with a lightsaber.  Deluxe wouldn't be so bad, but has some problems of its own.

Yoda - Always liked Jedi Master Yoda, but the 2pack version is nice as well.

Dooku - Geonosian Escape

Zam Wessel - Bounty Hunter

R2 - Coruscant Sentry (sound is kind of neat), there are better non-E2 R2s though

3PO - Deluxe version

Clonetrooper - Without question, Super-posable Clone Wars version...if only it was easier to find :).

Me too Morgbug, that's why I started thinking about it in the first place.  I'm sad to say that I own some pretty craptastic figures :).

Cool topic, here's my choices:

Anakin - Secret Ceremony with a custom right hand that is articulated

Obi Wan - Outlander Club with a new custom right hand that isn't pointing and an articulated left hand too

Padme - Factory Chase with a custom Padme head from the EPI line with repainted hair

Mace Windu - hmmm, a custom job all the way with the Deluxe Windu body, two Kit Fisto right arms, custom hands from the CW Windu (would be an awesome kit bash for Hasbro)

Dooku - Geonosian Escape

Yoda - 2-pk version

Zam - SAGA version

Jango Fett - removable head version

Clone Trooper - SA of course!
