With quite a few new people on the forum, I figured I would go back and re-do some of my lists in order to see people's top favorites of our beloved Vintage Star Wars line!

Which are your top 5 favorite figures from the Vintage Star Wars line and why?

- And for those of you that have answered already, have things changed?

- Are there figures you enjoy above others now?

Make sure to post below!

Love the top fives  cheers

In no particular order:

1. Luke X-Wing - will always be in my top 5. He's not the greatest sculpt, but is an early figure and the first pilot. For me it was a joy to add him in my X-Wing Fighter as a kid.

2. Tusken Raider - I think this one has also been in my top five before. Scared the crap out of me in the movie as a kid. I like it's old school look with the robed legs and the vinyl cape and gaffi stick.

3. Yoda - hasn't been in my top 5 before, but these days I think he's a brilliant little figure with interesting accessories and variations.

4. C-3PO - one of the first figures I saw and had as a kid. I didn't even know he was Star Wars at first, just thought he was this cool looking gold robot.

5. Emperor's Royal Guard - totally cool and sinister looking figure in red robes. Would look good in almost any sci-fi setting I reckon.

 
@darthmatt22 Will have to try and find your old thread to see if my answers are much different this time around  thinking

As of today I would say that my top 5 figures are
NOT IN ORDER...
1. Bossk, he's been one of my favourite since I saw him in Empire, the sculpt on him is not that great but I still love him.
2. Squidhead, I really like the sculpt of his head I believe that kenner did a great job on him all round, his cape and belt the whole package is great.
3. Stormtrooper, Was my first figure I got, can still remember getting him, so they always have a special little place in my heart.
4.Darth Vader, who does not like The main man himself, this is one awesome figure.
5.Tie Pilot, like others I think kenner did a great job with him (along with At-At driver and speeder bike pilot, they are also great looking figures)

Hard to say

1 - Princess leia : My first kenner toy. The figure is really nice ( sculpt ) and Carrie Fisher is so beautiful.

2 - Jawa : i love that little guy in the movie, the way they talk and sometimes they have a crook attitude

3 - The stormtrooper : disciplined, loyal, efficient and the sens of sacrifice to the empire.

4 - Hammer head : he looks slim, tall almost fragile and yet powerfull, ruthless. Very nice sculpt by kenner

5 - Tusken Raider

Hammer Head - My favorite sculpt as a kid. I love the detail, the veins in his arms and legs, the huge, splayed feet. Something about this figure really captured my imagination.

Hoth Trooper - My favorite Stormtrooper and just an awesome design. They were so much more menacing with the hooded look.

Yoda - A really great figure design. Great expression on his face, and his little cloth robe, gimmer stick, and belt made him seem like a super detailed figure, but at the same price. And then the snake was just odd, but so cool.

Boba Fett - It wasn't so much that I thought Boba Fett was a great character, because he didn't do a lot, but I think his figure went a long, long way to building his reputation as one of the coolest characters in the SW Universe. I got a lot of play out of his figure, just for the fact that he had a backpack.

Bespin Luke - I loved this figure. I had no specific reason, just loved it. Maybe the fact that he had a lightsaber that looked like a lightsaber, and not like an antenna. I admit to occasionally pretending that Luke was actually holding a walkie-talkie

Ig88 - does he need an explanation . double guns , sick sculpt , ultra bad ass in every way

Jawa - once again super cool sculpt and awesome accesories made this one of my favorite figures to play with as a kid . i still love him and hey these guys are like tattoos , you cant own just one ,, can you cheers

death star droid - yep , awesome , evil , ultra cool , i wish there were a thousand variants on him , id try to own them all

I don't remember my previous list but here goes:
1. Wicket- first star wars figure i had that was bought for me new. I can remember opening it and everything.
2. Wicket- he is a bad ass ewok
3. Wicket- he made quick friends with Leia
4. Wicket- warwick Davis played him, and he was also willow and both of these characters are awesome.
5. W....kidding, boba fett for this one. I didn't know who he was or what he did, but I got the figure from my brother and he has a small rocket on his wrist and a jetpack. Who wouldn't love that figure.

1.) Yoda: All time favorite character. I love everything about this figure whether it's his small stature, accessories or variations.


2.) Lando: Smoothest figure in the plastic galaxy, and the first figure I bought from the line. Also a cool person in real life!


3.) Tusken Raider: This one's for Bill.    -- The hype is real around this figure, and I can't wait to get my hands on a hollow cheek version.


4.) Luke Jedi Knight: Cape? Check. Gun? Check. Green lightsaber? Check. Black suit, black glove? Check. My favorite iteration of Luke because it's the most bad-ass iteration of Luke!!!


5.) Boba Fett: Mandalorians..'nuff said.

My previous was my favorites list from childhood. I though I'd update it with my favorites as of now. My love these days goes beyond play value, and shows up in my collection of variants.

1. Darth Vader - I've developed a lot of Vader love. He's a fantastic figure, and I find his variants fascinating. I'm up to 5 unique variants
2. Yoda - An old favorite that I can't get enough of. Just ordered a gray headed fella today, so I'm on my way to my New Years resolution, and currently have 4 variants
3. Chewbacca - This sort of came out of nowhere. I've always loved Chewbacca, but his figure and variants really get my attention, for some reason. Right now I have 3, with a Lily Ledy on the way from south of the border. I dream of being able to get a Uzay someday.
4. Princess Leia Organa - Fell in love with this figure, and was one of the first I bought in my current vintage collection. I'm amazed at how little information I can find for this figure, and variants. With 8 variants in my hands, she's gets a lot of love.
5. Bespin Luke - Still. Love this guy. Bought a beater for the saber, and he's my favorite vintage figure right now. Even has some kid's initials on his feet. 3 variants so far, but there's so damn many of them

This question is so difficult to answer and I bet if you asked me next week the list would be totally different. But in order as of today.

1. Han Solo - I liked Luke best as a kid, Han as a big kid. As a figure I just love how cool he looks in black and white, and the Rebel Blaster is by far and away the best weapon to display. Big or little head I don’t care and if I had to take only one figure with me it would be my PBP Han Solo with white neck posted somewhere on this forum.
2. Princess Leia Organa - this figure looks so awesome on display when she’s minty white. She kicks ass and like Calrissian_Charm says the fact that there is so little info available on her capes and Coos only adds to the intrigue. She looks beautiful on a 12 or 20 Back. I would love to own one.
3. R2D2 Solid Dome - got a lot of love for this little guy. He kicks pop-up and Senserscope into touch and in mint condition there’s nothing better Droid-wise.
4. Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) - awesome figure and one of my favourite cardback images. Love him with a blue saber. Even better with moulded face, snap cape and green saber.
5. Yoda - he made the ESB line for me. He’s only small but he’s got a million and one accessories and he rocks (or at least he moves rocks).

Other memorables to note include Tusken Raider, DSC, Jawa and Greedo. As you can see I’m a First 12 kind of guy. At least this week. Very Happy
