    VOTE for your Top 50 Expanded Universe Figures!

    Kidhuman and I had a lot of success with our Top 50 polls we started on the site here in 2004. We used two different methods and you all indicated that 36 of 50 choices were the strongest either way. We're about 50% through with seeing all our winners made into action figures today, including likely 2008 additions. I think we should go for 100% or at least 75% before we vote again.

    But with that in mind, we have 3 categories of figures to continue the line with when we do vote (and Hasbro is interested in the voting as of now). Those categories are:

    1) Figures Never Made Before - see our polls we conducted in the past.
    2) Resculpts - for which our previous polls allowed as write-ins and some won.
    3) Expanded Universe - which was never polled.

    It would take at least a year to re-read everything (especially counting the crap) and make a list of every "Page-by-Page: EU Figures Never Made Before."

    Let's just list what we want.

    1 pt. = Choice # 50
    50 pts. = Choice # 1

    Just pull from the top of your head. If you hate the EU, please don't participate. Some of us feel that Ulic Qel Droma will sell better than Darrow Willits and are willing to test that theory once we get a list to put into a larger polling mix.

    Please use TheForce.Net's EU Timeline to jog your memory when comprising your lists.

    Here is mine:

    1. Jix - Shadows of the Empire
    2. Guri
    3. Black Sun Thug

    40. Ulic Qel Droma
    41. Exar Kun
    42. Nomi Sunrider
    43. Master Arca
    44. Sylvar

    46. Cay Qel Droma

    47. Cade Skywalker
    48. Darth Kraayt
    49. ?
    50 ?

    I'm not really sure about figures from "Legacy." Plus I've some space left for figures from the live-action TV series if that actually spawns any strong appeal for me. I really do want even more obscure characters from Heir To The Empire and maybe I should have put Borssk Fey'lya in there, or Garm Bel Ibis, but it would take a large group consensus to push any of them to the top anyway. Let's see what happens.

    So, we're listing in ranked order from 1-50, with you (or KH, or someone else--hell, I'd be willing to do it) averaging everything together for the final list?
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Right. I'll talk with Kidhuman about when to close this poll, but for now I'd expect it to stay open until the thread gets buried. Then again, if it's hot, maybe we should "sticky post" it.

    I approached making my list logically: I selected EU choices that went with figures I already owned so I could expand my dioramas.

    The suggest/ground rules was 50. Sacrifices had to be made, and tried to go with from what would likely sell and while as upsetting as some think the NJO is, it did very well in terms of sales, and while Hasbro would like Dark Horse for reference reasons, there still is an obscurity associated with the comics compared to the novels. I ranked mine by what should be done getting preference over what is likely to be done, but all have a definite "need" in terms of keeping the line going. Get them interested in the "start" and the "end" of the Saga, go to the late period, than finally bring in the old hands, and top it off with what most probably want.

    Commander Krettch - Ewok Pilot w/ arm and leg extenders - X-wing series
    Admiral Palleon
    Jacen Solo, NJO Era/teen
    Jaina Solo, NJO Era/teen
    Anakin Solo, NJO Era
    Tahiri, NJO Era -yuuzhan vong scarring
    Tenel Ka, NJO Era or teen w/ removable arm
    Ysanne Issard
    Exar Kun
    HK-47
    Corran Horn, Jedi
    Nom Anor - Crimson Empire
    Warmaster Tsvong Lah
    Koth Melan or otherwise a Bothan Spy
    Talon Kaarde
    Garm Bel Ibis
    Ton Phanan - Wraith Squadron X-wing pilot w/ face plate, could be a cool design i think
    Dathomir Night Sister
    Saba Sebetyne
    Jagged Fel - Claw Craft Pilot
    Alema Rar - NJO
    Guri - SotE
    Chiss Claw Craft Pilot

    Special things i'd like to see (worth a shot to mention):
    Mini dioramas:
    Something like the 500th figure, or the anniversery 2 packs like luke/leia grappling over deathstar bridge, or maybe 3 3/4 scale unleashed style:

    Chewbacca- Standing defiantly roaring at the moon - Vector Prime
    Ganner Rhysode - Defending enterance to the world brain

    Vehicle: Claw Craft
    ~Umbra: Light is only a shadow cast by the darkness of the stars

    Yeah, I need to count ORDERED lists when you guys have them. If you can't come up with 50, that's fine. But it will be scored in the list order so even if you have 10:

    #1 = 50pts
    #2 = 49pts
    #10 = 41pts

    So your order is important.
