What's the figure you hate the most?
« on: April 11, 2003, 03:56 PM »
There were so many POTF2 figures created, that it's pretty hard to tell which one I hated the most.  Here's a list of the ones I thought were pretty crappy...
  • R5-D4 -- I could never understand why he had that launching rocket mechanism.  I don't ever remember him shooting a rocket in any of the movies before.
  • Monkey Face Leia -- I think this figure will be on everyone's list.
  • Lando & Luke (buff version) -- When did they have body-building gyms during the Star Wars time frame?  I don't remember seeing a Bally's in the movies.
  • R2-D2 (flashback) -- His middle leg is enormous!  Talk about having Elephantitis!

What about Momaw Nadon? How exaggerated can a figure get? Looks like the Hulk and packing enough fire power to take out the Death Star...

You're right about that!

Well most of the 95 line will get my vote for poor figs but buff versions are the worst.

monkey face Leia is just a down right awful fig, in my opinion.

Hmmm,

Well that's a tough one...

Let me think about it for a minute...

Hmmm, hold on.  I've almost decided....

Oh yeah, I hate the Rebel Fleet Trooper.  But not only do I hate the POTF2 abomination of a figure, which it most CERTAINLY was an abomination of a figure...  I also feel the POTJ figure still sucks the sweat from a dead man. :)

That first POTF2 Fleet Trooper was laughable though.  I honestly still don't realize what they were using as referance material to sculpt it.  The boots were wrong, the pants were wrong in style AND color, the shirt was wrong...  Just bleh.  Unfortunately, their resculpt didn't get their 100% best effort either, though it was a noticeable improvement.

Then again, how could it NOT have been?

Last I heard, she hadn't actually kicked the bucket just yet...   :P   :-*  But I'm sure she was rolling around wherever she was at the time, at least!   :D

But I agree - that was definitely the worst figure of the POTF2 line, bar none!

I will go with Mon Mothma.  Although I am grateful they actually made a figure of her.  I don't want a resculpt.  She'll do but it's a craptacular figure.

I vote for Lobot. I don't remember him breaking into a dance that would require the figure to be posed that way. I'm jonesin' for a resculpt, but since even main characters can't make it to retail these days, I doubt it'll happen.

Well, all of the main characters that came out in the first wave on steroids are horrible.  

The monkey face leia that accompanied the steroid junkees was the worst one.  

I agree about Momaw Nadon's weapon, it's dumb.  Especially if you read Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina or the Guide to Alien Species, you'd know that the hammerheads (Ithorians) are pacifists.  He should have been packaged with a potted plant instead.  But the figure itself is okay.  It's got a nice head sculpt.  And I used the head and hands of a couple hammerheads on a Lott Dodd torso to make generic Ithorian senators.

Can't really say I disliked one because all the ones I bought I really liked.
