Done til SAGA! part two: the list

Collection 1
III-1: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Slashing Attack!) - action featured to death. Used his head with a Kit Fisto body to make a kit-bashed Super-poseable Obi-Wan, lasted me until #55. x1
III-2: Anakin Skywalker - another action feature victim. No good Anakins in this line. Bought him mainly for the better Dooku lightsaber x1
III-3: Yoda (Firing Cannon!) - Best Yoda of the line, nice figure, could be better, but if you're going to spend $6 on a two inch piece of plastic, this is the one to get.
III-4: Super Battle Droid - Terrible rehash, soft plastic, not articulated enough doesn't stand up well. x2
III-5: Chewbacca (Wookiee Rage!)
- Poor. Articulation barely works, doesn't stand up well.
III-6: Clone Trooper (Quick-Draw Attack!)
- action feature doesn't ruin him, due to having good basic articulation. x6(x4 regular white, x2 shock trooper variant)
III-7: R2-D2 (Droid Attack!)
- Yawn. Passed. x0
III-8: Grievous's Bodyguard (Battle Attack!)
- Tempted but the poor articulation and reported soft plastic made this a pass. x0
III-9: General Grievous (Four Lightsaber Attack!)
- very nice, lots of fun. Should've been bigger, a good source of surplus lightsabers though. x1
III-10: Mace Windu (Force Combat!)
- action-featured up, poor articulation. Poor Mace, no good figure for you yet. x1
III-11: Darth Vader (Lightsaber Attack!)
- Two better Vaders out this year alone, bad action feature, bad articulation, big pass. x0
III-12: Emperor Palpatine (Firing Force Lightning!)
- Surprisingly good, mine went to a custom though. x1
III-25: Tarfful (Firing Bowcaster!)
- Wookies are a big pass for me. x0
III-26: Yoda (Spinning Attack!)
- Bad Yoda of the line, passed. x0
III-27: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi Kick!)
- Worse than the #1 somehow. Useless action feature that doesn't even work. x1
III-28: Anakin Skywalker (Slashing Attack!)
- Mascara Anakin. Poor articulation. x1
III-33: Clone Commander (Battle Gear)
- Great. Nice articulation, no action feature, red version was pleasing to the eye(green was boring). x3
III-34: Clone Pilot (Firing Cannon)
- boring design, poor articulation, dull. x1
III-35: Palpatine (Lightsaber Attack!)
- Yuck. Action feature dominates design, useless. Good head sculpts though. x1
III-36: General Grievous (Exploding Body!)
- Heard he doesn't stay together after first explosion. Passed. x0
III-41: Clone Trooper (Super Articulated!)
- In the running for best figure. Crayon "battle damage' dirt designs only real flaw, articulated like heck. x4
III-42: Neimoidian Warrior (Neimoidian Blaster Attack!)
- Better than you'd expect, but needs some knee articulation to be anything other than background. x3
III-43: Wookiee Warrior (Wookiee Blaster Bash!)
- Wookie. Pass. x0
III-44: Destroyer Droid (Firing Arm-Blaster!)
- Best droids in the line. x3
III-48: R2-D2 (Try Me!)
- Tempted, but passed. x0
III-49: Commander Bacara (Quick-Draw Attack!)
- Terrible action feature, used a #41 to fix him up. x1
III-50: Anakin Skywalker (Battle Damage!)
- Weird looking, poor articulation. Passed. x0
III-54: AT-RT Driver (Missile-Firing Blaster!)
- Liked these a lot, despite the weird helmet. x2
III-55: Obi-Wan Kenobi (With Pilot Gear!)
- Best figure of the line. x1
III-56: Mustafar Sentry (Spinning Energy Bolt!)
- Cool figure. Hard to stand up but worth having. x1
III-57: Commander Bly
- Repaint of #33, not bad though. x1
III-58: Wookiee Commando
- Wookies are a pass. x0
III-59: Commander Gree
- repaint of a #41, my favorite Commander. x1
III-60: Grievous' Bodyguard
- Same problems as his original version. x0
III-61: Passel Argente
- rehashed figure of a non-entity in the film. Pass. x0
III-62: Cat Miin (Shu Mai's Aide)
- See above. x0
III-63: Neimoidian Commander
- I liked the original but don't need him. x0

Collection 2

III-13: Count Dooku (Sith Lord)
- 2nd best is still pretty damned good. Evolutions version has him beat though. x1
III-14: Chancellor Palpatine (Supreme Chancellor)
- Surprisingly good. Used in a custom though. x1
III-15: Bail Organa (Republic Senator)
- Another good figure, needed hinge elbows though. x1
III-16: Plo Koon (Jedi Master)
- Favorite Jedi, could use ball elbows but the swivel ones work well. x2
III-17: Battle Droid (Separatist Army)
- Twigs. Not worth $6 for this rehash. x0
III-18: C-3PO (Protocol Droid)
- Gay robot equals pass, despite him being the best ever made. x0
III-19: Padmé (Republic Senator)
- Erratic paints, finally found a good one. First pregnant action figure ever? Disturbingly hot. x1
III-20: Agen Kolar (Jedi Master)
- Average among the jedi, nice to have though. x1
III-21: Shaak Ti (Jedi Master)
- Nice sculpt, used her for a custom though. x1
III-22: Kit Fisto (Jedi Master)
- Great articulation, used for a couple of customs. x3
III-23: Royal Guard (Senate Security Blue) I
- under the clothe robe a surprising amount of detail and articulation. Among the best in the line. x3
III-23: Royal Guard (Senate Security Red) II
- See above. x3
III-24: Mon Mothma (Republic Senator)
- Cut from the movie, has different hair from the character in Return of the Jedi, still not bad. Got her while waiting in the long weeks before popular figures. x1
III-29: Ki-Adi-Mundi (Jedi Master)
- Another surprisingly cool Jedi. Why couldn't they make a Mace Windu this well? x1
III-30: Saesee Tiin (Jedi Master)
- Another good Jedi. x1
III-31: Luminara Unduli (Jedi Master)
- Used her for a custom. x1
III-32: Aayla Secura (Jedi Knight)
- Favorite female jedi, preposed arms a pain in the ass. x1
III-37: Vader's Medical Droid (Chopper Droid)
- yawn. pass. x0
III-38: AT-TE Tank Gunner (Clone Army)
- Bad arm articulation, bad face paint applications, only figure in the line with ball hips. WTF? x2
III-39: Polis Massan (Medic)
- Weird little guy, seems more Spielberg than Lucas. Pass. x0
III-40: Mas Amedda (Republic Senator)
- actually thought this guy looked cool, never felt like picking him up. x0
III-45: Tarkin (Governor)
- only released figure I've never seen. Poor articulation anyway. x0
III-46: Ask Aak (Republic Senator)
- Amazingly good sculpt, hard to find but really recommended. x1
III-47: Meena Tillis (Republic Senator)
- Same as above. Someone at Hasbro really got into these two Senators. x1
III-51: Captain Antilles (Senate Security)
- Basically the same as Bail Organa, didn't need someone to stand next to him doing nothing. x0
III-52: Zett Jukassa (Jedi Padawan)
- Lucas's kid got his own figure. Good for him. Not going to encourage nepotism though. x0
III-53: Utapaun Warrior (Utapaun Security!)
- Heard the articulation was bad, passed. x0
III-64: R4-P17
- Not out yet. Not interested. x0
III-65: Tactical Ops Trooper (501st)
- Not out yet. Not interested. x0
III-66: Plo Koon (Hologram)
- Not too interested, when he's out I'll give him a look. x0
III-67: Aayla Secura (Hologram)
- Not too interested, when she's out I'll give her a look. x0
III-68: Wookiee Heavy Gunner
- Not out yet. Not interested. x0
