Sunglasses and loading him up with two guns and a cape and you got a real killer.

Second is Leia with her removable helmet. The light side Fett..

I wouldn’t have considered the AT ST driver an underrated figure, he is so cool, no other figure wears shades that well. :wink:

I think I would have to go with Hoth Rebel Soldier as well, very cool. Especially the dark brown variant.

My personal favourite figure I would consider underrated has to be the B wing pilot. I love the helmet and colours, some nice little details when looked at closer too. Without realising I have been picking up quite a few cheap loose ones lately and even a few various condition MOC.

Squidhead- the first Jedi figure I bought as a kid. I love Weequay too, great sculpt; in fact I feel the whole of the first wave a Jedi figures are underrated.

Red snaggletooth is another I'm fond of; mainly because I seemed to spend an eternity searching for one in the shops back in the day. The excitement of walking into my local shop and actually seeing one for sale, and it was just one, is something I'll never forget !

I do like Imperial Dignitary for some strange reason.

I adore the Hoth Rebel Soldier, so many happy memories of playing with that one as a child. Squid head is also massively under rated, great accessories and a beautiful sculpt, I would also point to Klaatu and 4-LOM too, great figures. Klaatu gets a bad rap just because of the amount of them on the shelf in the mid 80s.
