Carded figure before restoration. He's a mess too.

Spock wasn't in this uniform in Star Trek III at all.  For the introductory flashback, yes. In Star Trek II, yes as well.  But not in the third movie.  He was only in it for a few minutes and wore a really cool looking bathrobe.

Spock included a phaser (right.)  

As mentioned before, the weapons aren't so hot.  They look better empty-handed.

You know, these totally live up to the hype my 6-7 year old self built up.  I wish the line continued and they made all the others, especially McCoy, and the Ear Guy at the bar.
