  1. My top 5 Vintage figures are 5) Yak Face (Although I’ve never seen one personally) 4) Squid Head 3) Ree-Yees 2) Amanaman 1) And Han Solo in Carbonite. These selections are based on the quality of the sculpts, and in the case of HSC the extra playability of the Carbonite case. Honorable mention goes to the Gamorrean Guard and the Max Rebo Band (Does that count as one or three?). Obviously, the quality of the sculpts were vastly improved by the time of ROTJ.

  2. There are just too many vintage figures to like to limit them to my favorite 5. I can’t really do it. Orange snake Yoda, blue Snaggletooth, Jawa (cloth and vinyl cape), Vader, Chewbacca,…can’t limit my favorites to just these.
