Any of them that had molded, oversized capes, i.e. Lando. Oh, and "Mega Thighs" Vader from the buff line.

I don't think the sculpt of R5-D4 was that bad.  It was a pretty good sculpt with some good detailing in my oppinion.  The reason he sucks is because they had to enlarge him to add that stupid rocket feature, and fo course make him split in half.

Monkey Leia is easily the worst.

All of the first wave are pretty lame, but if I had to pick one it would have to be 'monkey' Leia.

i'll have to jump on that "monkey faced leia" bandwagon, because it is without a doubt the worst figure ever, followed closely by the face sculpt of the "oops, i crapped my pants" anakin that came with the speeder bike  ;D

I forget his name cause this figure is SOOO forgettable, that stupid droid that comes with the wooden log or whatever it is, it is from the Special edition.  That figure is just stupid and a waste of plastic.

I have to go with Monkey-Faced Leia as the worst figure.  The likeness absolutely sucks.  I bet Carrie Fisher winced when she first saw it.  There is a similar thread at POTF2.com where it was mentioned that the figure looks like Anthony Kiedis from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.  You make the call:

R5-D4 might have been okay if they'd made him "normal" like R2-D2 rather than putting that hokey Concealed Missile Launcher in there.  I didn't care for how they sort of made stuff like this up.  They did the same in the Deluxe line with Boba Fett, Han Solo, Stormtrooper...  A license to make Star Wars toys is not a license to just start making things up and slapping the Star Wars name on it.

The "buff" look was pretty dumb, and it took them a while to finally give it up, but you have to remember that at the time this was a brand new line of toys and they were trying to capitalize on the popularity of things like Power Rangers and Spawn.  I think they were going for a comic book feel to the line...

I think your thinking of the ASP-7 Droid?

I hate: Bib Fortuna, Hammerhead, Roided up Lando with Rock Hard Abs, I guess they had a gym on Bespin.  Never understood why the 95 line was all buff, except for Yoda and Obi-Wan, hmmm....

I actually really like ASP-7.

As a heavily used droid supposedly, I've got a small army of these.  Some cheapy customed up, and others just used as laborers at Rebel bases or IMperial factories.

I thought it's one of the more accurate and "neat" figures.  Good articulation actually and they can even look damaged missing the face plate. :)

I love it.

Those concept vehicles with figures. What a poor excuse for Expanded Universe (now those figures I love).

It's a toss up between Monkey Leia and R5D4.  They really need to give us a new R5.  It's not like they can't throw a new head on an exisiting R2 body.

Gotta agree with many about the Princess Leia, it looks just plain horrible ...
