I spent some time compiling the lists I could find from all the sites. I hope that no one minds me posting info from other sites, but I thought that it would be in the spirit of the compliation of the Q&A answers. If it isn't appropriate, feel free to edit out anything that you'd rather wasn't on the site.

Of the sites that regularly submit Q&A questions, I didn't find lists for:

Updated to include an additional site.

Of course, you don't know how Hasbro will put together the final list to vote on. Will each site get an equal voice? What weight will be given to the poll that hasn't released its results in which you can vote for just one character? Will certain characters such as the Tonnikas be stricken immediately? Will votes for different versions of the Rebel Fleet Trooper or Weequay or Snowroopers be consolidated?

Anyway, here is the breakdown of the 37 characters making more than four lists, which COULD be very similar to Hasbro's list of 30:

Cliegg Lars (12)
Jocasta Nu (10)
Ben Quadrinaros (9)
Queen Jamilla (9)
Bastilla Shan (9)
Guri (9)
Pellaeon (9)
Cane Adiss (8)
Sim Aloo (8)
Tey How (8)
Toryn Farr (8)
Tzizvvt (8)
Joruus C’boath (8)
Bom Vimdin (7)
Doallyn (7)
Dorme (7)
Corde (6)
Darth Plagueis (6)
Jaxxon (6)
Mosep (6)
Queen Apailana (6)
Taym Dren-Garen (6)
Weequay Skiff Master (6)
Cin Drallig (5)
Darth Sion (5)
Kitster (5)
Tarkin (ANH) (5)
Darth Wyyrrlok (4)
Dash Rendar (4)
Dr. Evazan (4)
Lumat (4)
Palpatine Senate Duel (4)
Teek (4)
Tonnika Sister (4)
Wald (4)
Sith Trooper (4)
Anakin Solo (4)

Of these:

Ep I - 4
Ep II – 5
Ep III - 3
Ep IV - 6
Ep V - 1
Ep VI - 6
EU – 12

Pretty even breakdown on the films considering that Empire has been very well covered by Hasbro. And it is 12 prequel, 13 OT, and 12 EU. That's darn even!

It seems that there are a few groups that may cancel each other out and split votes. Some of the categories even overlap:

pod race sequence
boring episode II characters
Queens of Naboo
Handmaidens
Darths
video game characters
EU novels
cantina
Jabba's Palace/Sarlaac battle
Vintage redos
Silly characters (Jaxxon, Teek)

Tey How, Toryn Farr, Cin Drallig, and a Tarkin resculpt are kind of in their own category. So maybe one of them will do surprisingly well.

I predict that a video game character will again win the whole thing, due to the likely voters in the final poll and the undeniable passion of KOTOR players. Jocasta and Cliegg will likely water down the whole Episode II push. I don't think there will be enough consensus on a cantina or palace alien.

Personally I think that people against Jocasta or video game characters should rally around an original trilogy character, though I admit I would probably only vote for my own favorite choice so I doubt that strategy will have much success.

I might vote Tonnikas if they were allowed on the final list. I might take that as a sign Lucasfilm approved them on the final list. Otherwise, I will likely vote for Taym Dren-Garen as I believe he needs a poll like this to get a human from the cantina or the Palace sequences made. And HE SHOT LUKE!

Kithaba only showed up on the lists of two different sites. :cry:

I should have logged onto all of those other sites with multiple accounts and voted for Kithaba with my one and only post, like all those crazy Jocasta Nu fans did. There's no way she placed as high as she did by being popular, there was definitely some ballot box stuffing going on.

Nice work Droid.

I'll bet Cliegg Lars wins, but you may be right about KOTR, Bastilla Shan?

I'm glad Teek and Jaxxon made it in there. We need a little silliness.

Bet if there was "official" word on allowing the Tonnika Sisters, they would be in there for sure, if not winners.
I wonder if a couple Micro Series Clones would have been in there, if Hasbro hadn't said no so many times, like the Tonnika Sisters.
Not one Clone in there.
Clones used to be super-popular, but they ran out of recognizable ones to do, and burned out the whole clone thing, probably just as well. We're getting enough animated ones. :ermm:

I think Barris Offee is a wasted vote ( I voted her once :rolleyes:) she's going to get made, just not right away according to the Q&A.

It'll be interesting to see what the unreported sites come up with.

Glad to see my boy representin'. :thumbsup: :D

It's interesting to see all the overlap. I think the top rankers are all pretty good choices, though the female characters are going to need to be shortpacked like crazy. So many sites wasted time and votes on the Tonnika sisters, and a few wasted on realistic Clone Wars figures - they just ain't gonna happen. I wonder why GH crossed off Mosep - he hasn't been confirmed anywhere, as far as I know.

Thanks to Droid for the great work!

I can't remember which site it was, but somewhere definitely said they'd had a problem with vote rigging - multiple IDs voting for the same characters... and interestingly enough Jocasta Nu rated much lower with them. It's a shame more sites didn't pick up on this, as it looks like we're going to be saddled with one of the lamest figures of all time.

Han's Hideout had the best list imo - Bom Vimdin at #1, and Onaconda Farr on the at #27.... he's my #2 most wanted, and I don't think he got a single other vote here.... I might have to change my alliegance! ;)

Yes indeed. Jocasta Nu is fairing better than most of you had expected, isnt she?

She does have a solid base, and we are truly hoping to see her win...and that is most certainly a good possibility.

Im also happy to see a strong push for Prequel characters, especially those from AOTC.

No offense, but there is a bit of a diabolical, everything is proceeding as I have foreseen it, tone to your post.

Oh, I'm afraid that the tooling will be quite completed for Jocasta. Your insignifcant desires for interesting characters are no match for us. I have an entire legion of fake user accounts at my disposal.

[Insert ominous choir here.]

If nothing else, I think that Cane Adiss will be coming in the next few years. I think the preliminary polls show Hasbro that this is a character the collecting community is aware of and interested in. He is a unique alien from Jabba's Palace, and I think he may get planned now.

She does have a solid base, and we are truly hoping to see her win...and that is most certainly a good possibility.

Im also happy to see a strong push for Prequel characters, especially those from AOTC.

She does have a solid base, and we are truly hoping to see her win...and that is most certainly a good possibility.It helps that multiple people from your computer voted her as the top vote in our second method poll. Didn't think I knew about user account "MasterTrebor", did ya? Even discounting that 1 vote would have lowered Jocasta's standing in the results, because it's not that there's a solid base, there's a smaller number of fans who voted for her, but they voted her rabidly at the top and did whatever it took to get those high standings.



While not submitting questions regularly (due to lack of custom oriented questions), we at FFURG were also asked to submit a list. How 10 people will matter, I don't know.IMO, they deserve to vote as much as anybody. They represent a very specific subset of the collector group, and their voice should be heard too rather than lost in a larger, more general interest site's poll.

Thanks for letting me know. I updated to reflect that. Also, thanks for letting the thread stand. I didn't know if it would be allowed to post the other sites' names and lists, but figured it would becuse of the Q&A roundups you guys do.

The thread took a long time to put together, but I was really interested to compare how different sites voted. However, I think it is impossible to know how many people went to multiple sites such that there aren't as many different voices as you might think so much as the same people dominating all the "polling stations".

I'm sure an EU figure will win, but I am mostly excited to get figures like Rycar Ryjerd, Cane Adiss, Taym Dren-Garen, and Shasa Tiel on Hasbro's radar a bit more. I'm sure fans of the EU also feel this is the best chance of getting a character noticed by Hasbro. Seems like Joruus and a Luke are a natural comic pack based on the Thrawn trilogy given the interest expressed in these polls.

I seem to remember that. Well they can always make Rukh, the Noghri that kills Thrawn. I was hoping we'd get him instead of Talon Kaarde, but I was ok with that. We wasted votes on a couple, like Barris Offee. They said they would get to her.

I figured they'd want to put a Luke in there to make the pack a safe sell.

Luke and C'Boath would be cool. I just hope they've gotten rid of swivel elbows by then. There's an awful lot in the comic packs, but I suppose that's the only way we'll get these EU figures, I should be thankful.

A Jaxxon and Han comic pack. Tell me that wouldn't be awesome! Would probably do well.

Um, isn't that what I do in this thread?

Well, what I want is one master list tabulated from all the sites' results that counts the most recurring figure choices - all mixed in. Such as if more people voted for OT characters, I don't need to see a ranked list of PT characters. However, at some point, a prequel figure might have more votes between all the sites than a more obscure OT character, and that figure would fit in.

The bottom line is that these figures will be on the master list Hasbro submits to Toy Fare for voting on.

Then, later, ranked lists compiled by all the sites for individual categories like the EU might be interesting. But if Palleon or a Noghri is the top-most-wanted-EU figure on the EU list, it would make sense that they are already wanted more than some of the OT and PT characters and they are also predictably on the master list.

In the end Blue2th, that is not something I am asking for you to do for me or anybody else here. I don't have time to do it myself. I was just stating that I'd be interested in reading it should it ever be provided.

And not to volunteer him, but MSP seems to love to tabulate this kind of stuff. (But don't MSP: you do so much around here already and pick up the slack for a lot of the rest of us. It's noticed and appreciated. :thumbsup:)

Hmmmm.... I'm of mixed minds about the Jocasta vote-stacking.

On the one hand, it's unethical (inasmuch as voting for toys can be unethical) to stack the vote count. On the other, a lot of people (myself included) voted for her on our Top 30 lists, just not in the top 10. So I don't think we included a character who otherwise would've have appeared at all, we just bumped her up several spots. Since ranking probably won't matter to Hasbro, I don't think it's going to cause a problem.

Interesting answer Hasbro gave about their top 5:




HansHideout.com (Jeff): If the Hasbro Star Wars team was able to contribute to the current "Fans' Choice Poll" with none of your usual worries (like costing or case make-up or whatever), what would your collective top five look like?



Hasbro: We canvassed a few members of the team and did not find a unanimous top 5 list. This reflects not only the wide variety of interests, but the high quality of choices still at large in the figure world. In no particular order: Snoova (resculpt); the actual "Sith" species; Mandalorian Neo Crusader; Bastila Shan; Joe Johnston concept Imperial Guard; Phase 2 Dark Trooper (2 votes so technically the #1 choice here); Guri; Weequay Skiff Master; Widdle & Oochee 2-pack; Yuuzhan Vong (more slender sculpt); Luke in Emperor Guard disguise (resculpt); super-articulated Rancor with elbows and knees (hey, that's not eligible!); Nera Dantels; super-articulated AT-ST driver; Bettybot; female Stormtrooper from Legacy 0; Jaxxon; Ponda Baba; Dr. Evazon; Aqualish Technician (Clone Wars); Nelvaan Warrior (mutated - he'd be HUGE!); Shado Vao.

Their hands are probably tied for now, or who knows it really hasn't been made clear yet as far as the poll, and it's already past putting them in.

If they had made it abundantly clear they were allowed, we might have seen a Nelvaan, Fordo or Arc Pilots in the top 30 at least.

Like they said he would be huge, but no bigger than Ephant Mon or Hermi Odle, but a lot more exciting IMO.

I didn't know if it would be allowed to post the other sites' names and lists, but figured it would becuse of the Q&A roundups you guys do.Sure thing. Sometimes folks can come in here just to pimp their sites, that's what I don't allow, but citing it as a resource is fine by me. I don't want to play site politics with it, to me fan data is fan data.


The thread took a long time to put together, but I was really interested to compare how different sites voted. However, I think it is impossible to know how many people went to multiple sites such that there aren't as many different voices as you might think so much as the same people dominating all the "polling stations".HOPEFULLY the ToyFare voting will keep this to one-fan = one-voice, but I'm not counting on it.



The only thing would be whether to combine Rebel Fleet Trooper & Pello Scrambas together,I say no, Pello is a unique character deserving of his own figure, and also a poor representative of the general RFT character since he is unique. Nobody wants a squadron of old guys, except maybe Tycho. ;)


and to combine Cal Alder with the Hoth Rebel. On that one, I say yes because you can barely see their faces and he's a really generic-looking cat.



I figured they'd want to put a Luke in there to make the pack a safe sell.That is how Hasbro thinks, trying to grab casual collectors. It makes sense to a degree, but we're starting to see Luke-overload in the line.



There are a lot of kinds of Snowtrooper ranks, but I didn't know how they are different.There is none, except at the Commander level where he has a rank badge, his shoulder armor is inverted, and he has a different helmet-skirt. We already have a figure of this guy, though, even if he isn't named as such.



I think this vote rigging was pretty obvious to most of us, but if Mods knew about it for sure, how come these votes were still allowed?I didn't catch it until the last minute and it was just something I didn't want to fight over, I didn't want it to be singled out as looking like a vendetta against Jocasta Nu voters, especially when the figure was going to make our top 30 list either way.

FROM HANSHIDEOUT.COM QNA THIS WEEKEND:

1. What was your gut reaction to seeing the raw Fans' Choice Poll data/results from the various websites? Were the choices more or less varied than you were expecting? Any trends that you saw that surprised you or any characters that popped up that were completely off your radar until this initial batch of results came in?

** One surprise was how even the results were - drawing from all six films and the EU. Of the films, though, each of the films has at least 3 votes, except for, surprisingly, EpV which had only one character (Toryn Farr) in the top 30. Given that, EpV is generally acknowledged as the fan favorite, it either points to how thoroughly we have covered the film (unlikely since there are many great character re-dos to go), or that fans want to see as-yet-unmade characters generally over re-sculpts (more likely, as there are only five resculpts on the entire list, and the first one, Dr. Evazon, appears at #10). Of all the selections, the strength of Jocasta Nu surprised us. We do not think she would be a strong or compelling figure ourselves, but if she did win we would draft her into the lineup. Some of the strength of fans' desire for her could be precisely because we have expressed that we would not consider doing her ourselves, so if she does win it's a victory for the fans who wanted her!

I am pretty sure that Hasbro specifically stated this list was for non-CW figures, so hopefully my worries are without merit.

Actually, they said that any CW figure that wins the poll would be done in animated style.

However, Jocasta Nu is not going to be a good seller for the more kid-centric CW line, so IF they do make her it will be in the realistic style.

Hopefully that day never comes.
