8D8. Never had any of the ships so i'd bend 8D8 at the hips and made it fly and used the arms as laser guns. Hours of fun..

I liked Anakin too. As a kid I'd imagine this is what Anakin in the forthcoming episodes 1,2 and 3 would be, so the figure gave me something to think about. Here he is in his robes but he's not a transparent ghost - so he's a peak into the forthcoming prequels!

I like the Dignitary , but that's just cause I'm an awkward customer.

I'd go with the Star Destroyer playset too. I never had this as a kid and only heard bad things about it when I got back into collecting. I recently picked one up cheap and was pleasantly surprised- there's a lot a playability here (my 4 year old daughter always requests this one) plus bounty hunters so not crap at all.
For figures I'd say Imp Dig- this is a great sculpt (although I appreciate as kid I'd have hated it if I'd known about it)-and in general the first wave of Jedi figures- I think Weequay is particularly underrated, surely one of the best sculpts in the whole range;)

I always liked the Rebel Transport Vehicle but most people see it as nothing more than a glorified collecting case. Hence you can still pick them up boxed for £30 today. But it's got hidden compartments and detachable gun turrets just like the Millennium Falcon...

Another one for Rebel Troop Transporter. Played with that more than anything else as a kid. Loved the compartments and the hatch.

Never had the Star Destroyer but its a set I would love to have now.

I liked the AST-5 weaponized coffin, I had more fun with that than any other mini rig or ship
