This week Yak's Top Ten 2018 turns its attention on: The Vintage Collection: The Empire Strikes Back
Rules:
    Pick up to 10 figures you’d like to see done in 4” The Vintage Collection scale.
      If submissions have more than ten entries, only the first ten will be considered!
      Do not list multipacks as a single entry
      Only one vote per character
    All figures are eligible, whether it’s a new figure, a repaint, re-issue, deluxe, etc.
    Feel free to add descriptions to any of your choices, such as pack-ins.
    A tie-breaker will be done to determine #10 if more than one character gets the same votes!
Have fun!

#166498
1. The Emperor (Original Marjorie Eaton Version)
2. Admiral Piett
3. Luke Skywalker (Medical Frigate)
4. Leia Organa (Medical Frigate)
5. Lando Calrissian (Smuggler’s Outfit)
6. Admiral Ozzel
7. Captain Needa
8. General Rieekan
9. General Veers
10. Lobot

Hasbro has covered TESB quite well. I don’t think the original Emperor has been made as an action figure, but I could be wrong. Piett’s last 3.75-inch incarnation was as “captain,” and that was in the … late 1990s? Early 2000s? He’s in dire need of an update.

My remaining selections are characters or versions of characters that have not yet been “elevated” to the modern TVC collection, and I think they (finally) deserve their own cards.
