More Star Wars figures I will never own

From sirstevesguide, Be a part of the legacy! With dozens of movies, countless comics, and an entire library's worth of books and games, the Star Wars galaxy continues to expand!

The Legacy Collection brings back some old favorites as well as some new faces, bringing the fun back in a whole new way. These 3 3/4-inch scale plastic action figures each include accessories and feature tremendous detail, and you'll find such distinguishing touches as articulated wrists, removable helmets, and much more. This case includes 12 individually packaged action figures:

1x Captain Needa
1x Luke with new prosthetic hand
1x Emperor Palpatine
1x Ugnaught
1x Hoth Rebel Trooper
1x Princess Leia Medical Frigate

Hmm. Long ago I gave up my quest for all the Imperial personnel figs, but Needa still appeals to me. You gotta hand it to a guy who survives ESB under Darth Vader's command.

Either the person putting together this photo montage doesn't know Ugnaut scale or those are the biggest Ugnauts I've ever seen. And you know what? The Ugnauts are kinda stupid. In a galaxy of amazing critters they don't really rate at all, do they?

That's nice that Medical Frigate Leia has a gun, because of the well-known deleted scene that was the original ending to ESB, when she watches Lando and Chewie fly off and then takes out Luke's other hand, 2-1B and the bacta tank in a grief-fueled rage.

I was thinking the same thing about the Ugnaughts! What's the deal with trying to make them normal height? Are little people forcing Hasbro's hand (i.e., "Why are we always protrayed as evil or something to be mocked!?).

Nice comment on Leia. It's like the Hasbro people said, "How can we release this boring figure and make her more interesting? I know, gun!" Why not just give her a lightsaber?
