This POTF2 figure could do for an update to SA but the likeness and aesthetics of the modern figure is actually quite decent.  Good to be back :-*

Awesome, good to have you back!  ;D

Yeah, another one that definitely needs an update. Hasbro did  such a good job on 'palace' Klaatu, they can't just let this one go by unnoticed.

IIRC, the vintage one came in some sort of multipack before the carded version.
This is the way.

I personally would much rather have some of the other goons from the Barge before this guy gets redone again but I won't hold my nose at a new one either.  While they are at it they can do another Barada as well I guess

Looking at some of the recent Skiff Guards and Jabba's henchmen, yeah, this Klaatu is due for an update.  The POTF2 figure has to date back to what, 1998?  I agree that I'd like to see some new, previously unmade goons first.  But this figure could stand to be updated.  But I think those big, blousy pants might present a challenge for knee articulation.

And it's great to have Collect All 92 back, Scott!!!
