    Comments: Despite how simplistic the vintage Nikto figure appears to be, it is one of the most faithful sculpts to be found in the Kenner line. As a matter of fact, save the yellow lines that were on the character’s pants, this figure proves that the people at Kenner were not only very concerned with making top quality toys that best represented the film, they wanted to make toys worthy of the children that they made the toys for. There is little doubt that Kenner ‘really did care’ about more than the bottom line and it showed.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Nikto action figure has no documented major variations.

    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.
