Well, back in the day Jedi Knight Luke, Trenchcoat Han, and General Lando were my big favorites
Guess I was a bit of a ROTJ nut then, too...
Trenchcoat Han looks pretty bad these days though, but I have to say that there's still something endearing about that Luke. He makes the head sculpt look a lot better than the first Luke or Degobah Luke did, and his outfit is pretty cool. But maybe it's the high heels
These days, though... well, I need to get some Commtech Stormtroopers, a Commtech Greedo, and a Commtech Luke, but of what I have/had and have taken apart for customizing...
#1 EU Dark Jedi Luke
A great headsculpt and a pretty gnarly- if a little weird- outfit, plus a removeable/turning hand- when I first got this figure it tempted me to avoid my custom figure plans for the head, and just leave the figure as-is.
#2 EU Grand Admiral Thrawn
Again with the great headsculpt, and except for his wimpy shoulders and short stature, his imperial uniform looks a bit better than Tarkin's or Piett's in the way the "skirt' piece meets at the hip joints.
#3 Commtech Han Solo
Decent sculpting and great articulation for back then, plus a normal-sized gun with good detailing- and
a removeable vest. This figure really helped start some good trends, I think, and he's the king of custom fodder (and Corellia?).
#4 Ceremonial Gear Luke Skywalker
Great young Mark Hammil headsculpts began here, and he's not over-buff and his outfit is pretty cool, plus he'd make wonderful custom fodder... good all-around.
#5 Flashback Luke Skywalker
Commtech Luke looks better, but this Luke packed some pretty cool accessories...
#6 "All New Likeness" Leia Organa
Why is this still one of the best Leia headsculpts? Am I missing something they've made since?
#7 Hoth Gear Luke Skywalker
Still the best neutral version of this figure, and he manages to evade buffness as well- plus he's just pretty cool overall
#8 Obi Wan "Ben" Kenobi
Of the original line, only he and C3PO really looked anywhere close to right, and Obi Wan stands the test of time a little better I think.
Like Ben, Yoda looked pretty good and actually doesn't look bad amongst newer figures now.
#10 Admiral Ackbar
The best Ackbar we've gotten...
