How many of us used a DSC as a substitute RFT when playing with their figures as kids?

I may be wrong, but was under the impression that the story goes he was originally going to be the RFT in the sculpting stage, but Kenner realised that they didn't have enough bad guys, so he became a baddie when painted... Could of course be another Star Wars myth, but pretty sure I've read or heard that...

I've not heard that one before, but you might be right. If the sculpt IS supposed to be a RFT, it's a truly terrible one! :lol:

I honestly thought this would be closer but the Shiny Death Star Droid defeats Death Squad Commander by a healthy 20 votes. DSD progresses
