OK, Lars, so you have chosen Kenner's Old Woman for us this week then, eh?
I know a lot of people pour scorn on the Imperial Dignitary, and I have to say that I agree it is indeed a crap choice for a child's action figure, since it has all the action and excitement of a brick. However, I am also a bit of a fan of the figure from a collector's standpoint. Firstly, it's certainly bright and colourful, and stands out in any figure display, but also I'm still stunned to this day that Kenner bothered to make it at all! I'm glad they did, but I can't believe it sold in huge numbers! Perhaps they thought it would compliment the Imperial Shuttle and boost sales of that?
Anyway, here are mine. Another POTF like Nick's and Steve's, plus a loose complete with nose!

The really weird thing about my Dignitary is that when flash photographed (like below), the torso suddenly looks discoloured:

However, when viewed in other light, it looks like this... perfect (I have tweaked this in Photoshop to show how it looks without a flash):

I can only assume there is some discolouration to the torso, but (thankfully) it is for now quite subtle and requires really bright light to show it up. Does anyone else have this issue with their Imperial Grandmas?
Kenner's Old Woman, Imperial Grandmas
I love it
I never understood why kenner made the figure, but I agree the colour is great
I never knew any kids who had one when I was a kid and I have only found a few in danish childhood lots, I have found many more anakin that imperial dignitary
discolouration to the torso, I found one some years ago in a childhood lot, if I remember correct it was beginning to change to purple green or something like that
Great collection of imperial dignitary that you have, thanks for sharing them
