Luke Skywalker Death Star II!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tycho, my Jedi Top Ten figures, in order, are: Yarna Gargan, Hermi Odle, Guard that shot Luke, Sgt. Doallyn, Vintage Palace Klaatu, Ak-Rev, Umpass-Stay, Chief Chirpa, Jerjerrod, and the Ishi Tibb from Jabba's Palace. So five of this runoff are on my Top Ten List.
I think Jabba's Palace, Ewoks, Jerjerrod, and Sim Aloo and you're pretty much done with never before made figures from Jedi.
I also think a Gamorrean Guard that holds a pike rather than an axe is a good idea, but to me that is a resculpt. I'd also like a Leia that can recline on Jabba's Throne, a better Salacious Crumb, and a greener Oola. But I'd rather have all new figures before any of these.
Mother Ewok with baby Wokling
My vote, hands down, the figure I think should most be made from all five movies, is Yarna. Hands down, no question.
I'm going with Herme Odel (Jabba's Palace)
Artoo Ka-boom could make a really cool figure.
I'm going with Hermie Odle. He is my most wanted alien right now.
Luke DS2, runner up is tied, R2 shield bunker, R2 lightsaber and Luke Endor. It was a very close choice actually, but Luke DS2 needs to be done right once and for all (though if they did a Luke Endor that could double as Luke DS2, so much the better).Quote:

Well there were only 211 total possible (not counting what we narrowed the field down to).
1/4 of 211 is 52.75.
If Hasbro continues to release 50 figures per year, you see my point: their selection choices could barely satisfy you over 1 year, even if they only produced what you asked them for.
Episode 3 is not taken into account here. (so add to the hobby 2 more years)
BTW: most of you voted for HALF the figures possible here. That adds one more year.
2 years of E1,2,4,5,6
2 years of Episode 3 figures
4 years total
Star Wars may be all repeats or re-sizings by 2009.
We basically have to add more Ewoks, Podracers, Gungans, Senators, and random soldiers or background characters to keep it alive. (Cantina Aliens and Jabba's Goons are already counted as having great support for).

I recognize that he was dead before they hit the ground, but I thought this would be more interesting, and serve the gorey needs of the crispy Lars cheering section.Quote:

Anyway, on to the purpose of this poll. ROTJ again serves up a good mix of finalists. I'd buy all of the figures on the final 37 list. My top choice is
Yarna dal'Gargan far above any runners up. I was surprised to see no other Jabba's Palace characters beyond Hermi Odle.
Some interesting results can be confirmed
Padme as a Handmaiden is now by and far, offcially the most-wanted figure from TPM.
Cliegg Lars is also by far the most-wanted figure from AOTC.
Either candidate had 4-5 more votes than any of their prequel character challengers!
Our Sequel Characters are more likely going to need another runoff!
Hem Dazon the Arcona
CZ-3 protocal droid
Dead Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru
All claimed equal votes. Hem Dazon and General Tagge came in first place in their respective rounds. But Wiolsea who won his round, did not get as many votes in the all-ANH round. Honestly, Owen and Beru ought to be disqualified -they're not action figures, but CZ-3 presents a problem if enough people want him more than the Arcona.
With Empire Strikes Back:
Black Bespin Guard
Han Solo Torture Chair
tied in their round. PlasticFetish hasn't voted here yet, so if he picks one of these two, he can resolve this round.
Lando Smuggler actually won his respective wave he first challenged in, but he got 1 less vote than either of these other two.
Return of the Jedi looks to be Yarna dal Gargon's, however, she is only 1 vote ahead of
R2D2 shield bunker
Luke from Death Star II
and Jaff, PlasticFetish, and LuciferSam could choose the finalist here.
We're not quite ready to pit all the characters from the Sequels against each other yet, as ESB and ROTJ could still be sorted out more. As to ANH, I think I'll throw both Hem Dazon and General Tagge into the fray (2 contenders from ANH, and take out CZ-3 since the droid wasn't a round-winner before). Any problems with that? I hope not.
Meanwhile, for all those who want to, you can express a preference between Handmaiden Padme and Cliegg Lars from Episode 2.
