Please read carefully before voting
Welcome to the 2011 Rebelscum Wishlist Poll Finals! The important change is that you are NOW voting on a RELATIVE scale. And as a reminder, when voting, you are voting for that figure ONLY, not against, how much you want figures from other categories Unlike the nominations phase where you were simply voting that you wanted a figure, now you are voting on HOW MUCH you want that figure. This is very simple, and basically requires that you rate each of the finalists on a scale of 6 down to 1. A vote of six means that you REALLY want the figure and that it should be an immediate prioriy for Hasbro, and a 1 means that you probably wouldn't buy the figure even if it were released.
Take some time to review the rankings before voting - think through each subject carefully, and vote using the FULL scale:
6: Definite Buy! - This figure is one of your most wanted subjects. You would be out hunting as soon as it was released, and heck, would even consider paying a premium to get it from overseas, or from a similar early release vendor. It is a figure that, if you were planning the line, would get ranked ahead of 90% of the other potential releases. In a category of 20 choices, you really should only have 2-3 sixes.
5: Likely Buy - This figure is something that you really want to see released, but there are those few other releases that are ahead of this one. Don't hesitate to use this vote for something that you want more than most, or even more than average! You'd definitely look forward to adding this one to your collection, but probably would stick to your usual hunting patterns to find one.
4: Wanted - This is a figure that you want, that you would be happy to see released, but there are more than a few that you'd rather see first (the 5's and 6's). You'd keep an eye open for it, but perhaps wouldn't be so active in hunting it down. More of a "target of opportunity" when there wasn't anything else around that you wanted more.
3: Meh - Some would say not really wanted This is a figure that would be a just below average release for you, one that you might or might not purchase (50% of these releases you'd purchase, 50% you would not purchase) if it were to be released. No active hunting, but maybe when you see it, you buy it on an impulse. Everything in the 4-6 rankings would be higher on your wishlist.
2: Likely Pass - This is a figure that you really don't want to see released, but that you just might buy just to keep your collection complete. Maybe it would tempt you when you saw it in person, and it was better than you expected, or might buy it on clearance. It's one that you wouldn't be happy to see released and if you puchased it, you'd probably do so begrudgingly (10% of these releases you'd purchase, 90% you would not purchase).
1: Definite Pass - If you saw it on the shelf, it would be an EASY pass. Not only would you not want to see this figure released, you flat would not buy it, no ifs, ands or buts.
And if those don't make sense, just think of it this way, the more you want to see it released the HIGHER your vote should be (just like ranking the categories), think of a 6 as something that you're exhuberantly posting about when the announcement is made, and think of a 1 as something that you're bashing Hasbro over for being stupid - an average score of 3.5 is, well, just that, average, straight in the middle of the possible releases.
And even then, if that doesn't make any sense, just ask in this thread, and most anyone here will help you make sense of the process.
Oh and please make sure to rank EVERY choice even if you're not interested, make sure to vote for ALL the choices, it helps to keep the voting consistent.
400+ votes are required to complete the poll.
If you're not familiar with any of the choices, or why they MIGHT be good choices, and how fans would like to see them released (don't just assume the Hasbro Worst for each) - please review the next post as it has photos and a brief on each of the finalists, and what features we'd like to see included.
Are you sure you understand the scale and are ready to vote?
