In retrospect, POTJ has the best figures that are most likely to hold up now. But...I had to vote for that initial POTF2 wave. It was just so great to see the figures back in store and have so much variety to fill out my vintage stuff.

Wow, I wasn't expecting the 95-97 figures to take the lead. A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one :D

I definitely know where you're coming from, @ClanVizsla. Just finding new Star Wars figures - let alone so many - was a great experience.

That said, I voted for the later POTF2 waves. The "all new likeness" Leia, CommTech Han and Flashback Luke and Obi-Wan were such perfect updates. This was when the line reached its full potential, IMO.

I voted for the red/green lines, because they really brought me back to collecting Star Wars items. At that time, Star Wars merchandise was actually dead, vintage toys nowhere to be found, especially not on fleamarkets ... and then came the Potf2 toys. You knew you could go to a Wal-Mart, K-Mart or Target and pick up whatever you wanted for a decent price ... 5 Stormtroopers, 10 Stormtroopers, 50 Stormtroopers etc. The shelves were packed with stuff. No other line was so available in stores after the Potf2 toyline. Of course, some of the Potf2 figures looked like they were trained by Arnold, but so what, they were there and I could buy as many as I wanted.

Ah man, that sounds great. Being a young teenager in the UK I didn't quite have that luxury of choice (although I definitely didn't want for anything). Stormtroopers were pretty hard to find as I recall. My Imperials were a real mix - pilots, scouts, Sandtroopers, gunners, no more than one of anything.

I posted this in another thread. I took them myself back in the good old Potf2 Star Wars days. ;)Star Wars Wal-Mart USA 10.1998.jpg

I was 22 years old when the POTF2 line debuted in 1995 and, by that time, I had a job and some disposable income, plus I was living on my own. So, it was the very first Star Wars toy line that I was able to collect with almost no restrictions whatsoever. Because of that, those first few years of POTF2 collecting are second only to the vintage Kenner line when it comes to nostalgia factor.

Sure they are not the most accurate or detailed of modern toy lines, but they have a consistent style and charm all their own.

That's just it - that's exactly why I love them. You really do get a comprehensive OT collection.

The Star Wars: Power of the Jedi toy line was released by Hasbro from 2000 to 2002, featuring a variety of characters and vehicles from Star Wars, including both the first two prequels and the original trilogy. This toy line saw 57 figures being released and the introduction of the concept...

Just to clarify, POTJ was not a 1990's line. It made it's debut in 2000.

Of course. But it's very much stylistically akin to the later POTF2 figures. AOTC/Saga went down the articulated statue route, which IMO was a real point of delineation for the line.
