DARTH SIDIOUS Star Wars Revenge of the Sith
In the five years following Revenge Of The Sith, the one figure collectors were clamoring for more than any other was Darth Sidious in the robes he wore while fighting Yoda in the film's triumphant third act. The VC12 Darth Sidious action figure from the second wave of The Vintage Collection delivered everything collectors wanted and more!

The second wave of The Vintage Collection was revealed at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con. With the exception of a single Star Wars (A New Hope) figure that we've always wanted on a Kenner card, this assortment mainly focused on the characters from Revenge Of The Sith, marking the first time anything other than the Original Trilogy was represented on a Kenner Vintage card. The Assortment included Darth Sidious in his brown robes, Darth Vader as he appeared on Mustafar, Sandtrooper with a white Sergeant pauldron, the clean Phase II Clone Trooper, repacked Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous with soft goods cloak, the definitive Magnaguard and the (yawn) repainted Clone Commander Cody. Wave two began shipping in September 2010.

Poll
While it can be argued that both are important to many collectors, the Probe Droid wants to know, if given the choice, would you demand Hasbro brought back all the articulation or improve the paint applications.
Great Paint applications are more important to me.
I'm all about multiple poses, so I'd rather see all the articulation come back.
