    From SWCollector:
    1. VOTC Stormtrooper
    2. TSC Shadow Stormtrooper
    3. Saga Ephant Monn
    4. ROTS Covert Ops Clone Trooper
    5. TSC Zev Senesca
    6. TSC 501st Legion Stormtrooper
    7. Saga/Clone Wars ARC Trooper (red variant, non-animated)

    The other sites don't yet have them up, but in case you wanted to see them, here they are. Frankly I'm quite disappointed in many of these choices. The Covert Ops Clone Trooper is the only one I still need (and I doubt Hasbro will make a black Bespin Guard). Seeing the VOTC Stormtrooper on there in a few places is just stupid since the TAC figure is the same sculpt (with the obvious added removable helmet, but if you don't like it then leave it on) in much, much better plastic (my VOTC guy is already yellowing and the helmet doesn't fit very well).

    For the decision on the order of our final top 10 list culled from round 2, the order of those ties was decided by how they did in round 1.

    I know there are some disappointments, some figures that we voted so hard for that came so close and didn't make it. Unfortunately they can't all be winners. But you all should know that by the end of round 2, there wasn't a single figure that didn't have the support of at least 5 votes, that's pretty darn good - and in my eyes, that makes each one a strong contender, so you should all be proud of the support you lent even if they didn't make the final 10.

    I'm mainly angry at the fact that on our site, the Yaddle/Even Piell set beat out Sio Bibble by one place - those figures were in sets of all-new figures that pegwarmed for an insanely long time, and yet most of us still don't have Sio Bibble.

    I merged your thread into mine. I spent 20 minutes working on mine but came up 3 mins after yours so you get to be the thread starter.

    Sio Bibble I think is too much of an "old guy" action figure, not very interesting except to longterm hardcore collectors, many of whom did at some point in the last 7 years track him down. He placed pretty high for all of that though.

    I'm very disappointed to see that Nute Gunray: Holographic was just edged out of the Top 10. Especially when it seemed like this was probably the only chance in hell that he'd get released anytime soon. Curse you, Tank Man!

    Don't you reckon that the TAC stormtroopers removeable helmet will be yellow within 5 years? I'd expect that to turn yellow at an accelerated rate compared to the rest of the figure. I voted for the VOTC stormie primarily in an effort to just keep stormtroopers on the shelves. The Stormtrooper is at least as identifiably star wars as Darth Vader and yet its Vader we're forced to army build with endless basic figure releases and pack-ins.

    Glad I'm not the only one whose formerly white troops have turned yellow. My ancient POTF2 Biker scouts are now stark yellow in the head and limbs, not quite so bad on the torso. Its saddening to think all my lovely VTSC scouts and all my stormies will eventually be the same way.

    Not happy with the results from this poll. None of the ones I remember voting for ended up in the top ten so obviously on that score i'm not going to be happy. But I can't even say that theres any figures who would have made my 11-20 list.

    I don't get why anyone would want the blue snaggletooth - it wasn't in the film, it isn't a great figure and it aint like this is going to be put on a vintage style card for nostalgia appeal.

    The spacetrooper is outdated. What on earth do people want this thing released again for?

    Encouraging a repaint of the existing bespin guard is a mistake - its an asian figure - painting it black would look bizarre. Don't people want an articulated resculpt of a black guy with a moustache more akin to the vintage figure? Repainting the potj one and calling it a different character would be almost as hard to stomach as the revelation of the entirety of the remaining ANH rogue squadron using the Dutch Vandar sculpt.

    Anything else I either have already or didn't want first time around.

    Well, i'm sad Shakka didn't make it, i could never find that damn box set ><

    SSG only got me one of the 5 (6 if you count Jorg before hasbro decided to suck) - Colonel Wulf.

    Happily, Rebelscum picked up a Durge figure, and SWcollector got the Red Arc, so thats something at least

    Oh, and jeditemplearchives' list

    The four that seem to be showing up on most of the sites are:
    TSC Shadow Stormtrooper (SWS)
    TSC Zev Senesca (Snowspeeder)
    POTF2 Graxol Kelvyyn (Watto's Box)
    POTF2 Spacetrooper (Heir to the Empire)

    I think that fact makes it apparent that they are the top choices overall from all of the contributing sites. Then it's just a matter of the 5th figure for that wave. I'm still waiting to see the other sites report in. That fifth spot is going to be hard to fill, I think, between all of the sites combined voting.
    Move along, move along

    JJL, I thought hard about making Sio Bibble my replacement vote, but then voted against him with whomever I did put there sin ceI had him. Had I known it was you who needed him, I never would have entertained the thought of even voting for him.

    Sorry.

    Anyways, I am glad Graxol made most lists as did Zev.
