The thing that kept this off my top of the year lists was the sorry lack of articulation in the arms. If only they had included ball jointed elbows, this would have been my #2 easily. But nothing could be cooler than the McQ Fett. At least IMO.


Yo I'm sittin on top of the- It's more than a feeling ain't it?
I be killin damn it, I'm illin and I'm illin'
Eh eh eh meet Mr. Popular, Go get your binoculars
And see Penthouse 3 where a ni**a be
They whisperin about us
I know you haters doubt us
How you count our money we ain't even finish countin'
Pardon me I must say, I'm kinda like a big deal...

I gotta agree with you there. Precyborg grievous was awsome but the articulation left room for improvement

Yeah, I'm not sure why Hasbro even bothers making figures without articulation at every point. Why not just make it standard across the board? Every G I Joe figure receives the same articulation, and they are even cheaper than SW figures.

Thats b/c they know we will buy them no matter what!  Price, articulation, or packing.

Yeah, I guess. But it's just a shame that every Joe figure that comes out gets the same treatment, same articulation, and everything else, not to mention that they are cheaper than SW figures... yet we sometimes get an SW figure that sucks on articulation, or a crappy paintjob or detail, or whatever.  Almost like they don't care anymore.

Well join PETA, maybe they will help out.  All this cruel and unusually punishment to these figures, I cant take it anymore.   ;D

That's a tough choice.   My top five would be Hermi Odle, McFett, McSnowtrooper, Yoda/Kybuck, and Ewoks.

I'd have to pick Hermi Odle as the winner only because I thought he'd never get made and it felt great to finally have him in my hands.   Great year for SW figs!

They made a Zuckuss. A not-so-good one, but it was decent for it's time. I would LOVE to see Habro TAC-ize Zuckuss and Dengar, to get a good set of Bounty Hunters.

Although I picked Revan, Hermi surprised me and was alot better than I expected

Same here, thats why I had to get 4 galactics for my Cmd B. Now that he has 4 other troopers to back him up it looks much better now on my shelf.


but my Commander Bacara was very lonely not having some homeboys to back him up.
