I don’t collect loose anymore even though I have been tempted to so I am no expert:

1. Grey Limbs Hoth Stormtrooper
2. Red Bar R5D4
3. Orange Hair Luke Farmboy
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

This is tough, as I like a lot of variants, but... I think overall it has to be the 3 Takara variants, if only because they were some of the first variants I ever learned about, and yet they took me the longest to acquire after first learning about them:

If you exclude the Takara 3, then I suppose the PBP Rebel Soldier (pink or white face), PBP Rebel Commander and Meccano Luke Hoth would take it:

Dark brown Rebel Soldier is certainly my favourite, hard torso Stormtrooper and pink face Walrus Man in top 3.

1. Gamorrean Guard - purely because this was one of a few figures depicting more than an individual. I feel I have two separate figures rather than a variation of one!
I do not own a hollow tube Tusken Raider, but that would fit the bill too.

2. Luke Jedi blu saber - it is just a cool lightsaber!

3. Luke Farmboy brown hair - the figure that started my variant journey.

On a serious note, I do like the various different hair colours for Luke Farmboy and Bespin. I own blonde and brown, and would like orange if they weren't prohibitively expensive. I would also like a moulded face Luke Jedi, because I think the painted face one looks so bad, but again haven't found one for a reasonable price yet.
