Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Grabbed an extra 1998 POTF2 Ree-Yees this morning right after my friend's toy shop opened.

For those not in the know, Ree-Yees was one of the hardest Star Wars action figures to find in the earliest years of the modern era (1995-present). He came in a wave of just two new figures, the other being the almost equally hard to find Death Star Trooper...but while the Death Star Trooper later saw rerelease in a Target-exclusive figure and accessory set around 2003 and was later resculpted and vastly improved in several different incarnations up to and including the present day the Ree-Yees has never been rereleased except as a repainted exclusive in a Disneyworld Star Tours multipack of figures related to the theme park ride.

For a figure sculpt that's almost fifteen years old he holds up really well. They could rerelease him today with wrist, elbow and knee joints and he'd be a good seller.
