    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    "In Brooklyn, a castle, is where dwell I"
    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    After a week, 28 of you have voted. There are 161 characters voted for out of the 242 choices currently listed.

    ANH no longer appears in the top 10 results, the closest being #17. The EU currently leads the way with 3 characters, followed by AOTC and ROTJ with 2 each, then ROTS, TPM, and ESB each with 1. The Clone Wars has gained slightly, but still its highest-ranked character thus far is #29.

    Of any character gaining more than 4 votes, Nute Gunray (ROTS) has the highest average, which means those voters for Nute may currently not be as many in number as some other options, but those voters are more passionate for Nute. The next closest in that regard is Jocasta Nu, although her voters are on average a whole point lower in interest. Who knew that Jocasta Nu fans weren't as passionate about their favored character as Nute Gunray fans? And just 1 person so far has voted for both Nute ROTS and Jocasta Nu.

    We're only a week away from sending in our results!


    After 2 weeks, there are exactly 200 characters voted for out of the now 268 possible choices, an increase of 26 choices, half of which were new additions and half were existing.

    The EU list has grown massively and has the most options at 86 characters. That's more than the OT with 75 choices, and the prequels with 85. CW has 22, almost none being main characters - apparently the idea of a realistic Clone Wars Fans Choice figure isn't lighting fans' passions afire.

    Despite this Fans Choice figure being offered for ROTJ's 30th anniversary, ROTJ has a mere 31 choices. ESB has 18, ANH 26, ROTS 30, AOTC 33, and TPM 22.


    In terms of results, for the top 10, the prequels and OT each have 4 entries, while the EU has 2, and the highest that the Clone Wars has turned in has slipped to #31. The top 5 slots are currently a tight battle between what traditionally Hasbro would not produce as action figures in the modern line - Cliegg Lars, Sim Aloo, Jocasta Nu, ROTS Nute Gunray, and Toryn Farr.
