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.

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.
