Yes, I invited JabbaJohnL and a lot of new people I private-messaged including hopes that JediTricks and SirSteve would join us, as well.
Everyone can invite their friends online to join us. The more participation the better!
NOTE, NEW PEOPLE CAN GO BACK AND FILL IN THEIR VOTES ON THE OLDER Ep1: TPM POLLS
Your votes will count. We want a broad spectrum of different points of view - but we ask that you vote honestly for your most-wanted choice in every list of options.
This isn't a Hasbro Fans' Choice Poll, so we don't need to vote strategically for someone we don't think would be made otherwise. Just vote with your heart! That's the best we can ask.
Meanwhile, Sly Moore seems to have overtaken Senator Padme Amidala (Palpatine's Office) in a very close contest - and new people might finally settle the Gragga-Quadrinaros-Wald tie.
So I think we should let those votes come in, and give our regulars something to hold them over with until the end of Memorial Day Weekend (provided you all don't complete voting on this round as well).
Our next choices come from AOTC from the point Padme is attacked by the cohouns, through the speederchase and the infamous Night Club. Not without possible controvery, we'll proceed up until Senator Amidala's report to the new Queen.
Club Outlander presents an interesting issue here.
I have the SW Insider Issue 75 with General Grevious on the cover. Inside is a complete guide to absolutely everyone featured in Club Outlander. There were 42 characters!
Since Coruscant has a majority-human population, many were not THAT interesting. It was to my personal tastes to not get crazy and list everybody, but just try to add unique characters to the atmosphere (but I left out those 'different ones' I felt were too cheaply concocted, too.
4 of these characters have action figures already -which helped me eliminate some choices: Elan Sleezebagno, Aay Vida, Danni Faytooni, Acyk Med-Beq. But this list could be ridiculously long, so I choose to keep the choices at around 10 characters per round, and this time I've allowed slightly more.
I thought that with 20 Mos Eisley Cantina characters, compared with only 4 Outlander ones, that half-a-dozen or so more Outlander options would be enough for now. If you don't see a character from the Outlander that you want, feel free to add a write-in candidate from the Club. Put it in bold so everyone knows it's a new choice if they're that improtant to you. Thanks. Your complaints with how I handle this section will be read and addressed. Hopefull I can please almost all.
CHOOSE YOUR MOST-WANTED CHARACTER FROM:
Pamde (nightgown from attack, also balcony scene with Anakin - removeable outer robe)
alien aircar driver that almost hits Obi-Wan hanging on droid ("what the?!")
Bufon Taire - Outlander Bartender (black human male, grey suit)
Lunae Minx (Lucas' daughter as Twi'lek female)
Tas Kee - Weequay pirate with blue hat + uniform, with Hat Lo
Hat Lo - crime boss with collar taller than head hiding human features
Nyrat Agira - sexy human chick with medusa spiked bruntte hair in red thong
Immi Danoo - sexy blonde human female in short-shorts with cape
Rosha Vess - purple haired sexy human chick with bikini top tattoos around her belly
Necil Sing - Asian human female with beaded veil was interested in Anakin
Daro Willits - possibly half black, half-white human male with pony-tailed dreadlocks
Older Dug (Sebulba?) from Dexter's Diner
Younger Dug (from Dexter's Diner)
Hermione Bagwa (Dexter's blonde human waitress with the garter)
Padme Amidala -refugee disguise from Outland Peasant Freighter
Jocasta Nu - Jedi Librarian that helps Obi-Wan
Sio Bibble - 10 years older
Padme Amidala (from Senator's report to the Queen)
I deliberately left out these aliens:
Rodian female - Nardi Shodu - use Greeta in your dioramas, or vote for the Senator
Ithorian - Ror Ithh - vote for the hammerhead senator
Swokes Swokes - Oakie Dokes - vote for Gragga who's tied 3-way for E1 Tatooine
Quarren - Ren-Quarr - I'll be offering Separatist Senator Tiikes soon
Tarnab - Onyeth Carnavar - vote for the Coruscant Taxi Driver or Mot Not Rob
Gran - Nic Whoma - vote for the Podracer Mohawnic or the Senator from Malastare
That about covers the most significant other aliens I left off from the possibilities for Club Outlander. Lucas used the same masks for these characters as the other suggestions I offered voting for. Really, how many times do you want to see Tessek's head placed on a slightly different body - or with just a slightly different cloak on? Add a Jedi Robe to Ree-Yees and make Senator Ainlee Teem. It'd be nice to have one new resculpt of another alien from each species, but let's not get carried away with it.
That's my opinion. Write-ins will be accepted if you contest the compromise I suggested.
Meanwhile, I'll be voting for Padme in her nightgown from the cohoun attack as I want to set up an awesome little scene with Obi-Wan leaping at the assassin droid by jumping through Padme's window. Padme also looked beautiful in that balcony scene "Your presence is soothing to me." So I'll go with Padme. Another main character from key movie-moment scenes (the assassination and the decision to rescue Shmi Skywalker). I can hope for more Club Outlander and Dexter's Diner aliens, (especially the "spice girls)" but they are secondary to a main character I need from a key scene.
Padme's other outfits offered here are largely dependent upon whether we have a Queen Jamilla figure to display her with - plus they were hardly the most attractive or unique things she wore during the film anyway.
Pick your favorite please!
