I'm going with...

Stormtrooper as my fav. I just really like the look of the figure. Great concept great execution on it visually.

Stormtrooper on my least fav. I say this also because he has the least treatment. I was really disappointed when we found out it was just a repack of the original. This could have been one of the best figures ever if they would have gone in and retooled him with just a little more articulation.

I think the C4 Droids are my favorite, followed by Yoda.

Hmmm... Stormtrooper as most and least favorite? You meant Snowtrooper as one of those I think. :twisted:

Starkiller Hero!!! The McObi & McYoda having soft goods is a real downer to me. Worst one is Han.

I love all of them! But if I had to choose one, I'd probably choose R2-D2. His Concept has so much feelings to it in the painting. And Hasbro actually made it with all those! And he had so many functions!

Ok, here's my list in order -

1 - Concept Rebel Trooper
2 - Concept Snowtrooper
3 - Concept Luke Skywalker
4 - Concept Han Solo
5 - Concept Starkiller Hero
6 - Concept Chewbacca
7 - Concept C-3PO
8 - Concept Boba Fett
9 - Concept R2-D2
10 - Concept Stormtrooper
11 - Concept Yoda
12 - Concept Darth Vader
13 - Concept Obi Wan Kenobi

The Rebel Trooper is # 1 because I am so shocked at how much I like this figure in person. It's awesome. Great articulation, a nice sculpt too, but the removable two piece helmet and the chest armor are what makes me sold on this figure... I love it!

STARKILLER HERO by a country mile!!!!!

A gorgeous, fantastic and wonderfully imaginative figure. Because she's a cancelled conceptual character only, she's good to go as any kind of fan fic character of dios and photonovels. I love her!!!

After that -

Luke
3PO
Boba Fett (with alternate helmet!)

(at this point, I don't really care much....)

Chewie
Han
Obi Wan
R2

Rebel Trooper (my interest is only as custom fodder, I think the helmet is dumb!)

(everything below this line is a skip)
Stormtrooper
Yoda
Snowtrooper

Nope... STORMTROOPER all the way for both. It's a paradox type of thing for me. :? Best looking figure (IMO) with the worst articulation.

While I have to say that the whole line has been AMAZING... the Stormtrooper just stands out for me. I hope one day Hasbro will revisit him with super articulation and keep as much of the proportions as they can of this original one.

The whole concept set got me really excited and actually made me want to get out and collect them from first site.... this had not happened since back in the POTF days when it was all still totally new and exciting. My hat's off to Hasbro for the great idea and awesome exicution of the whole thing. (Did I just type that?)

The McStormie is a sort of tragically flawed figure to me. Brilliant in terms of look, but dreadful in terms of detail. His waist is too thin relative to his torso and legs, the chest plates are too thick, and his holster really should be removable. I wish his shield was clean so that you could have an army without each one having had suffered the same battle damage. And of course the articulation is horrid.

Though I don't have all of them, I will comment on the ones I do have.

Here they are, in order of preference:

1-Chewbacca: Something about this figure drew me to it from the first time I laid eyes on it. Aside for the "bat-child- face, it's got great stature and nice details!

2-Darth Vader: I think the inclusion of a second helmet was a great idea. It's great, too, that he's not fully black. Kind of a grayish on the costume.

3-C-3PO: I think this may be an odd choice, so high on the list, but, I like the color, and the facial details. Much more human. I also like that he's not ridiculously shiny!

4-Stormtropper: They did start the whole trend. I don't have an original one, so I don't know how different the two are. But it's got great deco!

5-Boba Fett: I really bought this one so I'd have one. I don't have too much to gripe about, though.

6-R2-D2: I like it for what it is. But, I think it's really whacky looking. But, I guess that's it's design.

I ordered Obiwan and Yoda, but, have yet to see any of the others in the wild.

I was just thinking, they've made a mistake in the naming of Starkiller Hero, it's a female so it should be Starkiller Heroine.
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..
