I have the 2012 Wedge as well as the 2004 OTC Wedge(online exclusive) and the 1999 figure from the "Rebel Pilots" Cinema Scene three-pack. I must say, recycled parts or not this Vintage Collection one is head and shoulders better than the other two versions. No pun intended.
Frankly, most Rebel pilot figures these days are usually a mishmash of parts from other figures so Hasbro can save time and tooling dollars. The new Mon Calamari Pilot(Deleted Scenes wave) is actually the first all-new Rebel pilot figure in about, oh, four years. Not a single recycled body part on that guy so far as I can tell.
