No contest. The best is the 300th Figure of Boba Fett. 2nd would be the Coruscant Guard IMO.

Great line, but Tessek is easily my favorite. Followed by other greats such as Eeth Koth, and of course the Imperial Officer, Teebo, and R4M9.

POTJ was a fantastic line.

For me?  Hands down, FX-7

They're all very good-looking figures, so I think it's too hard to say one is by far the best.

My vote, as it always has, goes to Plo Koon. He has the best Force File picture, IMO, and the paint app. is second to none. I mean, look at the scales on his hand, and the head mold..man, I dunno why they didn't just take the POTJ head for the Saga Plo Koon, because it's a thing of beauty.

It's too hard for me to pick my fav.  Although I really liked the Sandtrooper and Tessek among many, many others.

POTJ had some of the hands down most AWESOME figures of the modern line.

None were perfect, and none were of the quality of lines like X-Treme Detail, but Hasbro came DARN close a few times.

My tops would be:

1) Imperial Officer (And his Saga head variants)
2) Bespin Capture Han Solo
3) Bespin Security Guard
4) Sandtrooper (Didn't like him as much at first, but the 4-pack's helped change my opinion)
5) Tessek
6) R2-Q5
7) Bo Shek
8 ) R4-M9
9) Zutton
10) FX-7
11) Teebo
12) Amanaman
13) Mon Cal Crewman
14) K-3PO

Those are just some of my favorites...  I think POTJ blew Saga away in overall GOOD figures and better quality.  Price was higher though...  $5.99 was what I got most of the POTJ for myself, sometimes cheaper.

Some of those figures are in my top 10 all time from Hasbro I really think...

Hasbro's seemingly incapable of making perfection though...  At least they feel it's not worth the effort anyway.  They're SO close on some of those though, like Bespin Capture Han, Bespin Guard, and the Sandtrooper...

You add 4 points of articulation to each of those figures, and you've got something I feel is on-par with an X-D figure in overall perfection...  Even if XD still outdoes them in the articulation department.  

And no, the Fleet Trooper doesn't make my list...  It's still a weak figure. :)

10) FX-7

If I really had to pick some figures that I liked a lot, I would have to pick these two.  The FX-7 was done very well.

I think its a tough call.  IMO this way had more good figures than crappy ones.  Bespin Han, FX-7 and Eeth Koth are probably my favorites

This is so tough... Jesse has it right.  There's no clear winner.  They're all good.   For me, it's a tie between Boba Fett, FX-7, Bespin Han, and Throne Room Amidala.

My favourite (sorry, “favorite” – I’m English) POTJ figure is Obi-Wan Cold Weather Gear. I know it’s EU, but I just love it as a figure regardless of whether it’s really “Star Wars” or not. It has such great detail and cool accessories and I’ve always liked anything “Hoth Gear” looking from right back to vintage days when I was a kid.

I’ve even taken a picture of this particular figure and used it as the basis of my avatar.

To be honest though, I’d struggle to find any figure in this line that I don’t really like. To me, it’s the best series released so far (by Hasbro, anyway).
