1 . luke stormie

2 . lando general

3 . imperial dignitary
I met him in a swamp down in Dagoba
Where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda
S-O-D-A, soda

I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said "yoda"
Y-O-D-A, Yoda
yo yo yo yoda

1) Pop-up R2
2) Luke Stormtrooper
3) Lando General

Han carbonite was a good idea but poorly executed. Massive wrestler neck, the carbonite sculpt is completely wrong, and no blaster even though his hand is shaped to hold one!

1. Imperial gunner
2. EV 9D9
3. Barada (but Lando General ran him close - that cape!)

I think Barada is one of the best sculpts in the whole line, and looks like he could have been made 10 years later. Shame he's another jabba goon.

Personally both Luke and Han have terrible head sculpts, and pop-up R2 should be sued under trade descriptions. 'slowly rise R2' is more apt

Imperial Gunner - 8)
Luke Stormie - great helmet accessory
Luke Endor - yeah yeah his helmet doesn't come off but still a cool figure....... despite not coming with a saber :|
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.

Funny you should say that but...

Before I knew much about the last 17, in the early 90's I was hitting the carboot sales and picked a lot of figures I recognised as characters from the films but hadn't seen before as toys (I saw and recognised, luke poncho, Ev9d9, Yak, amanaman, Lando general and pop up R2...though I didn't know why there was a hole in the dome).

I picked up one figure and can remember thinking it was a modern toy from the 90's and a different toyline and so put it back in the box. Only to then be told by someone that it was a star wars figure, which they then bought for 50p!! I later discovered, once I got a Sansweet book in 2004, that it was Barada. Didn't get one until 99 in the end and for £30!!

1) r2d2 with pop up, great idea. reminded me of the old adam west batman toy car that shot matches out the back.

2)amanaman. before I knew about the last 17 I can remember picking up a few of these at carboots in boxes of figures and throwing them back because I didn't think he was a star wars figure, whoops!
I did manage to work out the Anakin and lando general figures were though.

3)luke stormie apart from the turd head sculpt I think I would've jumped at that figure had I of seen it in the shops at the time.
