Best of 2007

(1/8) > >>

Although the last few waves are still trickling out to retail, I thought it might be a good time to cover what some of your favorites were for this year.  I guess I'm sticking mainly to TAC stuff here, although we had the tail end of TSC this year as well.  Although it has been tough to keep up with everything (especially the last few months), to me this has been one of the best years yet for the quality of Star Wars figures.  A lot of good figures/etc., and some long-requested characters.  What are your favorites?

Basic Figures (including Vintage and Legends)
*Entire Vintage Lineup (Hoth Han, Bespin Luke, Snowtrooper, IG-88, Bossk, Endor Leia)
*All McQuarrie Figures
*Galactic Marine
*Mace Windu
*Super Battle Droid
*Death Star Trooper
*Rebel Honor Guard
*Luke Skywalker (mainly for the vaporator)
*Jawa and LIN Droid
*Animated Boba Fett
*Jedi Luke Skywalker
*Hermi Odle
*Yoda w/Kybuck
*Roron Corobb
*Han w/Torture Rack
*Romba and Graak
*Tycho Celchu

I could really list the majority of the lineup (which I pretty much have), but there weren't a lot of stinkers this year in my eyes.  I don't personally have either of the last two waves, but there's some more good ones in there as well.

*Saga Legends - AOTC Clone, Shocktrooper, VOTC Fett, Pit Droids, Sandtrooper, Biker Scout, TC-14, R4-I9, RA-7

Comic Packs
*Obi-Wan Kenobi and ARC Trooper
*Luke and Han Stormtrooper Figures (with some headswaps)
*Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker

*Target Order 66 Packs (repacks stink, but kind of a neat/affordable idea)
*McQuarrie Exclusives (price/exclusivity stinks, but figures are nice)
*Target Ultimate Battle Packs (not for everyone, but really a good deal for what you get.  I like Hoth in particular)
*EE Mando/Elite Forces Packs (good price per figure, and kind of neat sets)

*TRU Y-Wing Starfighter (one I was missing personally, and came with two pack in figures)
*Darth Vader Sith Starfighter (people are getting repainted starfighter out, but this is a pretty cool ship)

Battle Packs
*Again, Target Ultimate Battle Packs
*WM Treachery on Saleucami BP
*Target Ambush on Ilum BP
*Target ARC 170 BP (due to the new astro)
*Tantive IV (for the Stormies)

Other Lines
*Galactic Heroes - This line continues to impress me, I never thought we'd get this deep into character selection. Really the only "other" line I still actively collect - or can afford.
*The Coins - practically a line all to its own.  I know it has gotten me to buy a few figures that I probably normally would have skipped (especially with the budget crunch lately), because I want to complete that damn album :P.

I'm sure there are some things I'm missing/forgetting, but those are some off the top of my head.  Its been a pretty nice year for Hasbro stuff in general, not to mention some spiffy higher end things that I can't afford :).
