Hasbro says it is their observation that EU figures have a top tier that are very popular and then fall off quickly. I think what we're seeing bears this theory out. There's been obvious consensus on a handful of must have EU characters, but once these are hit the support seems to fracture. I think the EU suffers from that fact that while we refer to it as one entity, it is in fact an extremely eclectic mix of many genres and media, as extreme in their variety as the Ewok movies and cartoons through to the KOTOR and TOR video games, Legacy comics and NJO novels - all of which are vastly different in tone and have different audiences and supporters. We are seeing a small group of candidates that can muster enough broad support to compete with movie characters, but once those are done, as many have been in the past five years, EU fans as a whole don't seem to be able to agree on who comes next. The fan base fractures into supporters of various media and even the best candidates from those media get lost in the tide of movie nominations. That's no one's fault and it isn't because any one character or media is undeserving. It's simply how it appears to plays out. We talk about EU fans like they're all the same and all want the same thing, but in reality it's a many headed beast with many different priorities.

I really don't understand why so many main character rehashes are in a "Fans Choice" poll!



Are there many though? I'm looking at this list and there seems to me to only be a handful, and none of them have made it to the top ten.

I share your surprise as they're not something I expected to see here either, but I'm not seeing them dominating the poll by any means, or even really making an impact. Padme has almost fallen off the poll, and even Han and Palpatine are polling only averagely. If anything, I think this poll is a win for the movie backgrounders more than any other sub group.

I totally agree. My favorite EU source is the Droids cartoon; but my action figure wishlist would only center around the primary characters in the Jann Tosh storyline and then my interest would fall off pretty quickly. Same with the Ewok TV specials - after Chukha-Trok and Kaink, no one else even makes it into my top 10.

However, the fact that wanting figures from those two media sources makes me an "EU fan" just goes to show how inadequate and vague the blanket term "EU" really is.

Interesting top 10 so far. Of this new top 10 (not including the TCW characters and Hoth Luke that were left off as well as figures that have been confirnmed), there are only 4 from the wishlist top ten represented in this top 10: Piett, Nikto, Torynn Farr, and Teebo w/friend.

Still getting used to the new forums....I *think* the poll has changed somehow so now you can only choose 1 character? (I voted before the movie, so I can't tell for sure.) If so, that's wrong...but I'm not sure how to change that at this point. Or if it's even worth it to do so.

I think the way Hasbro described it, all the top ten lists from each sites voting poll are combined, and the top twenty become the list we vote on to determine the Fans Choice figure. From what I understand, each site has an equal vote of ten - so no site dominates the nominations. Makes sense to me, Rebelscum may be big, but our votes here are equal to any other site, no more important, no less...

This is correct. Our ranked list will be tallied with the other websites' ranked list. The top 20 characters from the combined tally will make up the Star Wars Insider poll. The exposure from the Insider will reach more than just collectors, but the characters selected will still be chosen by collectors, not the general public.

There isn't any type of percentages for us...this is done to keep things fair among the sites. I do not know how many sites are actually having polls, but I figure it's at least 20.

Tonnika Sisters AREN'T allowed... SWAN is either trying to get around the restriction of the one actress who didn't give her blessing by voting for a Tonnika Sister (singular), or they don't know/don't care that Hasbro's said they are entirely unable to produce either sister due to Lucasfilm's say-so.

Nice to see Jedi Knight/Master Corran Horn doing so well (of course, it's a whopping 3 votes). It's as easy as retooling 2005 Ki-Adi-Mundi with a new neck (and collar, while they're at it), making it in shades of green (with black pants and brown boots), and retooling the Droid Factory 2-pack Corran headsculpt for a new hairdo and a goatee...and, ideally, a new saber sculpt for a lit saber & a separate hilt for his belt. And maybe swapping the legs out for some others that fit the pelvis and have ankle articulation.

They said "Any in universe figure" would be fine in response to my specific Tonnika Sister request...so maybe?? With that response she stays in!

It's been discussed to death here in the past, but here's the short version....

The Tonnika Sisters ARE allowed in these polls. However, it's a waste of a vote.

I know what you're thinking..."what if we try to tell Hasbro that we want them?" The problem is with Lucasfilm, not Hasbro. Hasbro WANTS to make a Tonnika Sister figure and continue to create more characters from the Cantina. It's a sore subject...

Even if the Tonnika Sisters (or even one of them) were voted as the overall winner, Lucasfilm will not approve it. And every action figure is subject to Lucasfilm approval.

Since LUCASFILM has repeatedly banned them from ever being made, we have decided that they are banned from Rebelscum voting.

If other sites want to include them in their lists, that's up to them. More power to them, really...However, it really is a waste.

I've never been a part of one of these before so please excuse the ignorance.

So after all of the sites are done voting and over all top 10 list is compiled from all the sites.

Then that list is voted on for the final results.

Correct?

Correct?
Yes, the characters on each site's list will be assigned a number (using our list as an example, Toryn Farr gets 10 points, Sgt. Doallyn gets 9 points, etc.),

Then those numbers are totaled up, and the top 20 characters from the combined lists will be posted on Star Wars Insider's website next month (I imagine it will also be reported in the magazine). Voting will continue until December 1, and the overall winner will be revealed at Toy Fair in February. (I hope they reveal the overall results as well, but I don't know for certain.)

This makes it fair to everyone involved, and the characters chosen are determined by the collecting community, rather than the general public.

That's one interpretation. Another is that a similar set of vocal wish list participants haunt all those communities to help push their character nominations. Just looking around today at the various sites to get the same info being posted above, I saw a lot of familiar names on most of those sites.

Just looking at the list, I'm betting I could do a good job of picking out which websites don't share a lot of members with RS.

I noticed that as well...it's cool with me. We're all part of the same community at large. Rebelscum may be the biggest fish in the pond, but the pond is very small when compared to the ocean of fans in general. (Actually, I've used this analogy before, and it made more sense last time....but you get the idea.)

What fascinates me is how many characters are part of the poll, when Hasbro has already confirmed them. And a vote for Tonnika Sisters is really a waste...Lucasfilm will just deny them.

I do not understand the appeal of Jocasta Nu, other than I think she's on people's radar because Hasbro has said they wouldn't make her. I hope they DO make her at some point, just so people can talk about something else! ;)

A lot more sites have posted their lists than what is mentioned above. But you gotta know where to look!

That always happens. I think people just don't bother to pay attention. The other is voting on guaranteed releases. It's hard to believe that people think the only way we'll see updates to Tarkin and Piett is through a poll like this. And no matter how many times we're told "no" on the Tonnika Sisters, some people just won't leave it alone.

Jocasta Nu is an odd one, though. Honestly, I don't even really want her, but I've been voting for her in these polls just because Hasbro has said they don't want to make her. And honestly, I'd rather have her than Cane Adiss or Tzizvvt.

I wouldn't vote for her if I wouldn't buy her. If they make Jocasta Nu in either her AOTC or CW incarnations, I'll buy her, but she's not on my personal list of characters that I want to see Hasbro make and that's what I meant by saying that I don't really want her. But I know a lot of people do and there's a chance that Hasbro won't make her if she doesn't win or rate high on a poll like this.

With the choices on the poll this time around, I'd rather see her get made than Cane Adiss or Tzizvvt, the Neimoidians and most of the Jabba thugs that are on the list. I haven't voted for any of them and wouldn't buy them, either.

Or they could simply recognize that Hasbro WILL get to most movie-based figures eventually (especially vintage upgrades), except the most obscure, but that a Fan's Choice poll is one of the ONLY ways to see EU get some love aside from DePriest or some other members of the team really pushing for a certain EU character internally (like all that Crimson Empire stuff they made).

*___*
09-29-2011, 06:03 PM
One thing to keep in mind is the ranking at this stage means nothing more than to see who the selected characters are for the final round at Star Wars Insider. Once that poll is launched, everyone starts back at 0 votes, and it will be up to the general public to have their say, most of which has probably never heard of Rebelscum or any other website that participated in this round.

I always find it very interesting to see how some of these characters rank from site to site. It just goes to show that someone who may not be very popular here, scores very high someplace else. Although it might also have something to do with the difference in members' participation too...when trying to keep things "fair" to everyone, you get some odd results because only a handful of votes are allowed to be ranked equally than a few hundred participants. But that's the process, I guess.

If Jeff's list is close to what ends up being used (and I see no reason why it wouldn't be), then there is an interesting mix of OT/PT/EU...Very happy to see so many OT background aliens, Jaxxon, Ackmena and Joruus make the cut. Although Kneessaa & Noghri were already "confirmed" before now, there's no indication they are out of the parking lot.

Oh, and I have no idea who Serra Keto is...and I still don't get the support for Jocasta Nu. But I actually hope she gets made so fans can rally around someone else instead. ;)

Toonimator
09-29-2011, 06:36 PM
Serra Keto is Cin Drallig's apprentice from the ROTS video game (in which Cin wears a patterned tunic/tabard thing rather than plain dark brown tunic/tabard like in the movie). Serra fought with two sabers and seems to have inspired the female Jedi from the "Hope" trailer for TOR (Satele Shan) at least for the hairdo if nothing else.

Really seems like a waste as they apparently didn't hear Hasbro say TOR figures were coming, and most likely those on the list are the top candidates to get made.

I broke down the 22 sites that have reported their lists and there are a few interesting numbers. I might be off by 1 or 2 in the counts if I didn't eliminate a duplicate or included something twice that should only be on the list once.

Of the 22 sites, there were 105 unique characters. Of those, 77 are all new (not done 1995-2011) and 28 are updates of some sort. In my counts I condensed Mara Jade to one entry when she could possibly be broken out more. Dewback Patrol put up a "Blue Imperial" from a Hangar Bay. I'm not sure if that's ANH or ROTJ but I included him in ROTJ as part of the Emperor's arrival but that might throw the movie count numbers off by one. Having said that, here are some other stats.

It's possible SWAN's list was 11 by mistake as they seem to have two in the number 6 spot, but with the Tonnikas being contentious, having a stand by in the list in case they get bumped probably isn't a bad idea. SWAN sought clarification about which figures were ineligible, including Ziro and the Tonnikas, among others. Ziro was ruled too large by Hasbro, but they didn't dismiss the Tonnikas from being a legitimate candidate, so the runners of the SWAN poll chose to let them remain, and whaddya know, they took the top spot.

I know the Gella Twins are always listed together, and for the most part that could work.
Considering that most of the tooling is there with the new Oola, all they need is to add yellow SG jumpsuits, mold a new head(s), pack them in with Subulba and a podracer.

Or release them in the basic line as variants.

Re the Gella Twi'lek twins



Considering that most of the tooling is there with the new Oola, all they need is to add yellow SG jumpsuits, mold a new head...

Respectfully, I desperately hope they don't go that way. That would be awful. There's no way the complex pattern of their form fitting jumpsuits could be reproduced in soft goods and not look like baggy pijamas. it's a totally different kettle of fish that Oola's outfit, which I maintain was only partially successful. Soft goods have no place on the twins. I am hoping for 100% sculpted. Soft goods just won't work for form fitting outfits and especially not stuff that requires sewn seams. Can you imagine how baggy, out of scale and puffy they'd look? Please no.

I assume if Hasbro did not explicitly say they were not eligible or said that they were eligible, then that leaves the door open for them in the future. We don't know all the details behind what LFL and Hasbro are planning and it could be possible that now those two are on the ok list. If they weren't Hasbro would have stated they were not eligible, right?

Agreed. My read on it is Hasbro isn't really allowed to comment officially one way or the other so they simply dodged answering the question, much like they do with Q&As that get too sensitive. Their silence does not indicate anything has changed with respect to the Tonnikas being off the table, so yes, in my opinion, wasted votes sadly.

Re the Gella Twi'lek twins



Respectfully, I desperately hope they don't go that way. That would be awful. There's no way the complex pattern of their form fitting jumpsuits could be reproduced in soft goods and not look like baggy pijamas. it's a totally different kettle of fish that Oola's outfit, which I maintain was only partially successful. Soft goods have no place on the twins. I am hoping for 100% sculpted. Soft goods just won't work for form fitting outfits and especially not stuff that requires sewn seams. Can you imagine how baggy, out of scale and puffy they'd look? Please no.
What if they painted the suits on?

If it's an all new sculpt people want I don't expect to ever get those two, too many other important candidates that require new tooling.

ReverendStrone
10-05-2011, 07:25 PM
They could, I guess, but it'd wouldn't be particularly accurate. You can't really paint bell bottoms onto sandal clad feet, for one, and they'd look pretty awkward round the bust area too. I think there's every chance we'll get these two as Hasbro has said they've almost got to them more than once. They're colourful, instantly recognizable as Star Wars (even if most shoppers probably couldn't name where they were in the movies) and attractive female characters. I think it's just a matter of time, but I just hope when they get to them that they do a nice new sculpt. Even Aay Vida got a new body sculpt. There's no reason why these girls shouldn't.

I'd like brand new sculpt as well, but I'm just trying to be realistic about it.
Hasbro coming close several times only means they didn't have anything to push them to the top like saving money.

The reason Aay Vida got a separate sculpt was because there wasn't anything else to use at that time, not to mention AOTC was out and big during her release.

I just hate to see the Oola sculpt go to waste in one box set, when it could be used for other figures of that nature.

I hear ya buddy. Oola certainly has a great sculpt, but when you compare her to the Gellas, there's really not much common tooling you could use if screen accuracy is what you're after. It'd be like saying, "Wow, that latest stormtrooper sculpt is so great, they should use it for all clone troopers going forward." That might do it for some fans, but anyone who loves clones is gonna want a clone trooper sculpt, not a great stormtrooper that was too nice not to use twice. ;)

Boy it must really be a chore to figure out how to re-release one of the most popular EU figures ever, especially considering they're doing TOR figures next year!
I know he's separated by a few hundred years from that particular storyline, but he was seen in a vision from it.

Not only that but if they're just talking about a straight repack, I'm not sure anyone is still interested in that, most want a retool by now.

That said Why not just do an Exclusive Commemorative set with all the KotOR figures released so far packed together in one big set.
Darth Revan, Darth Malak, Darth Nihilus, HK-47, HK-50, Bastila Shan, and include a new figure of T3-M4.

Considering the tenth Anniversary of KotOR is coming up it would make sense, and be a rather easy and cheap set to put together.

Voting has begun!
Vote for the next Star Wars action figure from Hasbro! | Sweepstakes | Star Wars Insider @ Titan Magazines (http://titanmagazines.com/t/star-wars-insider/competitions/hasbro-poll/?locale=us)

Note that the thumbnails used in my story on the front page is the unofficial ranking from the websites that Jeff from Jedi Defender compiled. Granted, JD's list was unofficial...but I think Jeff did a bang-up job compiling all the votes.

Interesting.... I'm looking over that list again, I see that the Gellas and a Noghri seem to have been dropped, and Pellaeon has been added (which was pretty far down the ranking in JD's list)

I know the Noghri was in the works at one point, and I can tell you that as of last weekend, Hasbro told me the Gellas are still in the parking lot....so it's curious that Pellaeon would be move up.

When it came down to it I know Hasbro will give us a ROTJ Emperor sometime and Toryn Farr would be hanging carded on my wall and a duplicate thrown in with my Hoth Rebels. Plus I could put the Infinities Leia head on a Hoth Leia body.

Same with ROTJ Emperor.

Also, I just have to believe that Mosep and Tzzivvt are already on the list of figures to make.

So, I had to go with the figure that I want to see made that I think is the least likely to ever be glorified into an action figure. So my vote went to GURI.

That was my first thought when I saw Piett and the Emperor on the list. Both need definitive updates, yet we have seen no sign of that happening.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion and guess some people who really like PT movies more may really want her. I don't really like her either, but I think because Hasbro has refused to make her for so long, gets people determined to vote for her just in spite.

right, I am sure a number of these were on the list the time they did one of these polls. I would like to think that Hasbro is paying enough attention to put heavy consideration to all characters on this list, let alone if they were on the list twice! Two-timers should be bumped to the front of the "obscure character to do" line.

Agree completely. The EU has dominated recent fans choice polls, so it would be nice to see something OT break through. In looking over the list there are very few that I wouldn't want. Kneesa might be the only one. A couple of the EU figures would be kinda meh for me. But otherwise they're goog choices.

There are a few on there that have eben on the radar for a LONG time now, so I'm hopeful that this list becomes much more of a to-do list for them.

Several on there are also really easy updates on existing tooling...

But Nikto that's where the vote needs to go, all new tooling from the bottom up. Vintage gap that hasn't been filled. Not much more needs be said!

And yes, the vintage Weequay (Hunter, Queeqeg) is confirmed for 2012.

I voted for the Death Squad Commander.

I'm glad that Hasbro considers the Imperial Navy Commander(black uniform) to be different from the Death Squad Commander(grey uniform), so we can potentially get both variants of the figure and likely with 2 different cardbacks, the old Kenner Vintage cardback for the Death Squad Commander and an all-new one for the Imperial Navy Commander.

Polls like these are fairly easy for me, because all EU and PT are automatically out of the running as far as I'm concerned :beguiled:. Then of course there is the speculation of who will get remade for sure (seriously, does anyone NOT think the Emperor will be coming out with the 3D ROTJ release?). I think Piett is a no-brainer, and it seems like Doallyn will be sooner rather than later. I ALMOST went for vintage Nikto, but I decided on Mosep as a sorely needed Mos Eisley character.

but most of the new characters have parallels.
Captain Piett = Grand Moff Tarkin
Emperor Palpatine (RotJ) = Darth Sidious (Senate Duel)
Mara Jade Skywalker = Bastila Shan or Dash Rendar
Mosep Binneed = Bom Vimdin
Nikto (Vintage) = Weequay (Skiff Master)
Nute Gunray (ROTS) = Tey How
Saelt-Marae (Yak Face) = Cane Adiss

Only Death Squad Commander and Princess Kneesaa don't really. But I guess one could say the DSC could link to the Rebel Fleet Trooper as an OT trooper and Kneesaa with Bastila Shan as a female EU character.

Mara Jade Skywalker.

Everyone else from the films--especially OT, and vintage-related--has either been on the poll before, or talked about enough that you KNOW they WILL make them.

For EU, this is one of the few ways of letting Hasbro know that we want figures. The OT & PT selections are mostly 'duh, of course they'll be made'. Even Flyhead and Jedi Librarian (okay, maybe not them, or Cliegg... but possibly!). But EU? We gotta fight to get representation... and usually it's not so much what fans want as whatever EU strikes Hasbro's fancy internally (like the lazy Joker Squad set, or the Crimson Empire obsession). And Mara Jade has had some CRAPPY representation via Hasbro, with a good-for-POTF2-but-that's-not-saying-much 1998 figure and a gee-this-is-really-crappy-by-modern-standards Comic Pack figure. A proper JEDI Mara would be excellent.

That said, seeing Joruus (the oft-ignored major villain of the Thrawn Trilogy--ie, the one the main OT heroes, and Mara, actually FOUGHT while Thrawn was off being killed by his own bodyguard) or Pellaeon or Plagueis or even Jaxxon win would be spectacular. Well, Pellaeon would just be 'okay' I guess, since he'd just be an Imperial Officer with a new head--could be great, could be 'Ozzel head on Thrawn body' utter garbage. Kneesaa's already sculpted, and Guri's been one of the most highly-demanded SOTE figures since 1996, so either winning seems a waste; they'll find a way out somehow (like the Noghri, hopefully).

But a good Mara, particularly one from NJO-and-after that's NOT some Imperial Agent but the love of Luke's life and mother to Ben Skywalker... she needs some help. So she gets a vote.

Screw the Nikto. It's foolish to vote for that figure, BECAUSE it's a Vintage gap. IT WILL BE FILLED, POLL OR NO. Same with the Emperor, Yakface, Sim Aloo, Death Star Controlleryguy.

Think of it this way - vote for something that is the LEAST easy for Hasbro to make - in that regard, Nikto (which should be EVERYONE'S choice), Jocasta Nu, Jaxxon, Doallyn and several others are more desirable.

This way we at least force Hasbro's hand on the tooling front, as opposed to giving them an easy out on something like Piett or Pellaeon where it would be LITERALLY a new head sculpt ONLY. That would be a HUGE wasted opportunity.

And there are some less obvious easy tooling opportunities here. For example, Mosep is an easy character for them to make, and frankly, I'm surprised that he hasn't showed yet, as he's essentially an imperial officer "red variant" with a new head. The tunic/suit that he wears appears to be cut from the same pattern as the standard Imperial Officer, just made from different (red) cloth. Boots and gloves appear to be the same as well. So while Mosep is a fantastic choice, I'd hate to see a fan's choice winner there, as it's a waste of a chance to force a completely new tool.

So even if you don't vote for the Nikto (which again, I emphasize that you should), think through the choices and figure out which is the one that would really force Hasbro to tool something all new.

I'd get a Palleon or Mara or Emperor (If the sculpt didn't suck like all the rest). Since I think well get mara anyway I voted Palleon. Definetly not in my top 50 character wants for any of these though. Pass on the rest of the list for me.

I am still voting EU. Now that the comic packs line has been extinguished (sadly) the EU figures seem to stand slim to little chance of seeing retail pegs. Plus a lot of the OT/PT figures on the list have either been done or receiving consideration already. Also some of those two second blip characters from OT don't do so well at retail, such as the Schwanns Man aka Ice Cream Maker Guy............... Go Jorus.

EU characters have held the majority in being made for the past few years, I think to say that they'll stand a slimmer chance of being onto retail pegs isn't entirely accurate.

I can not believe Palpatine had to make the fan's choice list to be noticed. Same goes for a few of those other much needed redos. Glad that at least a few new characters were in there though.

I vote Jocasta Nu since she needs the most support give Hasbro's response to her last time. Like Cliegg, but not sure I'd buy him.

Masterfett
10-22-2011, 11:22 AM
Maybe, but I'd like ROTS Gunray in my lifetime, considering that we only get a new Neimoidian figure like every three to five years or more.
Well technically and luckily for you there's already been a Nute figure in your lifetime.
I'm just not a fan of using the poll for resculpts or very easy fixes like Piett, IMO wasting the poll on figures that have a 90% chance due to an existing sculpt is stupid.

For me these polls are better spent trying to get a never before done figure made.
I mean I'd love to get a Vergere figure in my lifetime, but I don't see it happening.

That said there is still a good list of candidates Jocasta Nu, Mosep Binneed, Nikto Guard, Saelt-Marae (Yakface), Sgt. Doallyn, and Toryn Farr.
I even considering voting for Jaxxon just because, when I seen how light the actual list was. After you remove the easy subjects that Hasbro can knock out with different head sculpt, even Pellaeon can just utilize the Imperial Officer sculpt.

Guri oddly enough was mentioned by Hasbro, so I feel she doesn't need a vote.

I narrowed it down to Jocasta Nu, Toryn Farr, Sgt. Doallyn, and to an extent Cleigg Lars.
It was a tough decision but ultimately I want Jocasta the most, and I feel Toryn has to be close to getting made.

As for the OT selection I have to believe they are on the way, Hasbro has been pretty good about upgrades this year.

I see that the Gellas and a Noghri seem to have been dropped, and Pellaeon has been added (which was pretty far down the ranking in JD's list)

I know the Noghri was in the works at one point, and I can tell you that as of last weekend, Hasbro told me the Gellas are still in the parking lot....so it's curious that Pellaeon would be move up.

I so hope hope hope that means the Gellas might actually be on the cards (if you'll pardon the pun) for a release later this year, and not just some kind of screw up that saw them dumped. If there's any opportunity to ask about them next time you are touching base with DDP about the poll Dan, I would hope you will do so.

I was considering Yak Face, but I guess I would just prefer a figure who hasn't been made in the modern line over a POTF2 update (that's not saying that Yak Face doesn't NEED to be updated, mind you). I noticed Doallyn also and considered voting for him, but for me Star Wars is all about the aliens, so Nikto gets the priority.

As one of the few EU characters nominated, I think Plagueis has a very good shot at winning this poll if only because the movie vote is so going to be so fractured by a lot of equally worthy candidates. It's the phenomenon that usually erodes EU chances, but this time in reverse, with OT candidates looking like they could be spread too thin while there's a single rallying point for EU fans to get behind here with the late Darth. All the OT candidates could garner ten or twelve times the number of votes between them and still lose if those are spread roughly evenly across them all. Mara will suffer from having been done already, regardless of how that turned out, and Kneesaa is probably a little too niche to win out over all. I think Plagueis has as good a chance here as he's ever had or is likely to get.

I like the advice from Since1978 about Nikto. A vote for him now could mean we get an all-new figure from scratch . Too many other choices on the list would be easier to make when there is no poll.

I was torn between Palpatine and C'baoth. I don't consider the prequels and Heir to the Empire is the only EU I like. If the Palpatine choice were strictly 'Emperor Palpatine (ROTJ)', then the choice would have been obvious. But since the 'w/ throne' part was included, I'm afraid it will just be another softgoods disaster. I like softgoods, but something very drastic has to be done to keep this character from looking like crap. I went with C'baoth.

Maybe it means that they have something special in mind for the 30th anniversary (even though they've already stated that the primary focus of 2013 would be AOTC3D). It already appears that the big Ep1 push for next year will be mostly at the start of the year, so maybe they have something big planned for ROTJ's 30th in the latter half of 2013.

We did get the Qui-Gonn with Eopie mail-away offer in 2009 as well as an entire wave of TPM figures in Legacy for the 10th anniversary. I think the only reason that those TPM figures didn't pegwarm more than they did was because of the special BOGO 2-packs that they used at the end of the year to clear out all the Legacy backstock. Even at "Buy One, Get One free" the TPM wave hardly flew off the shelves.

I guess Hasbro hates ROTJ. Lets just hope they don't ignore it thisn time, Jabba's Palace is my favorite SW scene and ROTJ is my favorite SW movie!

Amen to this. Even though ROTJ seems like it has been tapped dry, I, myself, would love a vintage release of the last Rancor they did, and Jabba's palace/sail barge are HUGE repositories for additions or updates. Throw in Ewoks and things just got that much more crowded. :)

I'll hope for a BIG Sarlaac and/or Sail Barge. I can dream can't I?

I wouldn't say that ROTJ is tapped dry at all. In fact, it probably still has the most potential for exciting new toys out of all the OT films. ESB has definitely been tapped dry and ANH would be getting close if not for the Cantina and more uniformed Rebels/Imperials.

ESB has DEFINITELY went dry. ANH still has hope because of the cantina. New figures will come out for ROTJ in the next few years while ANH and ESB sit dry.

We did get the Qui-Gonn with Eopie mail-away offer in 2009 as well as an entire wave of TPM figures in Legacy for the 10th anniversary. I think the only reason that those TPM figures didn't pegwarm more than they did was because of the special BOGO 2-packs that they used at the end of the year to clear out all the Legacy backstock. Even at "Buy One, Get One free" the TPM wave hardly flew off the shelves.
The mail away is the only special attention TPM got though. We saw waves entirely themed to one movie, so I wouldn't say it's anything special.

I really have high hopes for the ROTJ 30th. I mean ANH and ESB aren't missing all that much really. ROTJ has a lot more that can be done.

Exactly. So much more...

Essentially ANH is only missing Cantina figures along with some random backgrounders, ESB is only missing Bespin citizens and some random backgrounders but ROTJ is missing Jabba's Palace, Pit of Carkoon, Rebel Breifing Room, and then some random backgrounders.

I voted for the grey suit Death Star Trooper the most, I think...but I am hoping whatever they pick its not something they would have done, anyways. I always think of the Fan's Choice as one that "probably" wouldn't get picked along the way, at least outside of a comic pack or a random worthy update.

As far as ANH or ROTJ having more to update/release, its always hard to pick a movie with Tattooine as one that can be finished...my hats go off to ROTJ, though, since the Briefing Room and Ewoks are two prime areas ton top of Jabba's goons.

Voting's over now. I voted for Jaxxon, largly because the Vintage Nicto is most surely coming for the 30th anniversary anyway.

I'm pretty sure I voted Guri, not sure if i commented previously or not. I would be pretty excited for most of the characters on this list, save for some of the EU choices like Kneesaa. No interest in a cartoon teddy bear whatsoever.

Emperor's Throne would be way cool, as the POTF2 one badly needs updated. Tzizvvt and Sim Aloo are top wants of mine. The Nikto, Jaxxon (realistic please) and Nute Gunray would be very welcome in my collection.

I'm sad that Cane Adiss barely missed inclusion in this poll, hopefully he shows up on Hasbro's radar soon...

Adiss REALLY needs a figure. He'd look great in my Jabba's Palace!

Am I the only one who noticed that out all the figures made from the 2009 poll, Hasbro hasn't touched the top 5? Isn't that a bit odd?

You'll have to refresh my memory on who the winners of the 2009 poll were. I know that Jocasta Nu placed second, but I think Hasbro sees that as a fluke. If she doesn't place in the top 5 this time around, then I believe that Hasbro will use that as an excuse to never make a figure of her.

Maybe every year Hasbro should make an exclusive multipack that has all top five figures in it. :D

My bad. I have a difficult time trying to understand what people are trying to say when they use emoticons instead of actual words. Sarcasm can be hard to detect sometimes, emoticons make it worse.

They were Jocasta Nu, Darth Plaguesis, Darth Caedus, and Jaxxon

lol I hope its Darth Plaguesis, or Cadeus. And I wish they would rerelease the EU wave, that was before I started collecting :(..

I'm not interested in Jocasta Nu in the faintest. I'd rather see Jaxxon get it even though I really want vintage Nikto, but I sense he'll be coming regardless.

Same. I am not interested in Jocasta or Jaxxon but I would buy both if it meant Plagueis and Cadeus.

Trouble is they hate some of the top five figures *cough*Jocasta Nu*cough* ;)
