Getting closer...  starting to see some "floor set-up" type pics on Twitter and movie sites

Looks like there will be a pretty good Force Friday push.

RUMOR - Darth Vader Set to Appear in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One

Not the main bad guy... but I guess it makes sense he's involved somehow since Star Wars Rebels has already established he's in charge of chasing rebel cells around the galaxy.

I mean I loved The LEGO Movie and all but these articles make it sound like this will be a comedy. Or am I the only one getting that vibe?

Not getting a "comedy" vibe, but given the movies these guys make, I can imagine it will have plenty of "fun" in it...  or at least I'm hoping it's not 23 Jump Street staring Han and Chewie (now I'll have to go back and re-watch the closing credits of 22 Jump Street to see if there was a Star Wars parody in there :P).

'Star Wars' Han Solo Spinoff In the Works With 'Lego Movie' Directors (Exclusive)

The LEGO movie guys?  Hmmm...  I guess you can start adding #ChrisPrattforHanSolo to all those #ChrisPrattforIndy tweets, internet!

Someone sent me a link to the Rebelscum top five (posted in their poll comments):

Ahsoka (The Clone Wars) Season 3 outfit
Darth Revan
Mara Jade
Assaj Ventress (The Clone Wars)
Emperor's Royal Guard

More support for Mara and Asajj, no Sabine... #fortheconspiracytheorists  :P

I'm not a 6" collector, so the winner doesn't really matter to me - here's a question I have though.

One of my pet peeves in collecting is the "unfinished team".  It drives me crazy that I have 3.75" Jaina and Jacen Solo figures, but no 3.75" Anakin Solo (and, most likely, never will #Legends :().  In fact, I've said this forever about these fan choice polls...

I'd rather see a whole wave of NJO Jedi or a whole wave of KOTOR figures that I can display together rather than getting a one-off figure that I have to just stick in someplace because he doesn't really fit in anywhere else.

For example, Scorch is a good figure.  I have no problem that they made him.  But, I would have rather had a wave of Republic Commando figures or a box set of all 4 figures rather than buying the solo Scorch now and waiting for he rest of his squad.  I mean, he looks fine in my Arena scene, but he'd look ever better posed with the rest of his squad.  ;)

Same goes for a number of these figures in this poll... another example:

Why waste a pick on Jaina Solo if we don't know for sure that we'd ever get Jacen and Anakin to go with her?  I could just stick her in my Arena (if she's a Jedi) or my Rogue Squadron (if they do the pilot version), but I'd much rather have the rest of the NJO figures to display with her.

With that is mind, is it just my OCD or would it drive other folks crazy to get a 6" Sabine and then never get the rest of the team... or like 2/3rds of the team?

Like Jimree said a few posts back, I'd much rather get a box set of 6" Rebels and knock them all out in one shot than get 6" Sabine now and hope/pray for the rest of the team over the next 3-4 years.  :-\

Round Two Voting Open at

- Ben Kenobi (ANH)
- Lando Calrissian (ESB)
- Darth Revan
- Sabine Wren
- Gamorrean Guard
- Snowtrooper
- General Grievous

Looks like our unofficial results were pretty close.  Those outstanding polls (Rebelscum, Action Figure Fury,, Fwoosh, and possibly others) must have had some good support for Sabine, Ben, and Lando to get them to leapfrog Asajj, Starkiller, and Mara Jade.

Jesse - Kessel: Geno or Sid winger?

As for the Wild... we locked up a bunch of guys from last year (Granlund, Carter, Prosser), some post-college entry-level guys (Reilly, Michalek), and some depth for Iowa (Hagel, Dalpe, Fedotenko, Knight). 

Looks like we'll be heading into 2015-16 with a team that's pretty much the same - just missing last year's rentals (Leopold, Stewart, Bergenheim) and Brodziak.  Not sure how I feel about that.  Brodziak could be frustrating, but really good on face-offs and PK.   :-\

** Still need results from at least 5 more sites that seemed to be running polls too (thanks google search!) - Rebelscum, Creature Cantina, Fwoosh,, Action Figure Fury. 

If you know of other sites/results, please share so we can update the totals. Thanks!

If that were the case, then it would have been a pretty dick move for Hasbro to include this in the original release:

"PLEASE NOTE: All STAR WARS characters are eligible for the poll, EXCEPT characters from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS."

Anyway, that "not Disney EU" may not apply to Revan anyway.  He is a big part of the current Star Wars: The Old Republic video game expansion, so you could make the argument that he  is Disney SW canon since the expansion came out after Disney. ;)

Hasbro isn't bound to make the top vote getter, are they?

According to the original press release, yeah - the winner of this 6" Fan Choice Poll gets a 6" figure in 2016.

The weighted top 6 from this fan site round will be posted on for voting round 2 starting tomorrow, July 2nd.  Round 2 voting lasts a week.  Then the winner of the round of voting will be announced at the Hasbro SDCC Panel and made into a 6" figure.

All of this subject to whatever Hasbro wants to do, of course.  Once the voting is back in Hasbro/ hands, plenty of room for shenanigans to occur.  :-X

Was chatting with someone last night and then Adam Pawlus on twitter - this fan choice poll is a pretty good look at the demographics of the sites.

A place like this, with a lot of collectors who have been around forever = 4 ESB, 2 ANH in our top six.  GH is another example - 3 ROTJ, 2 ANH, 1 EU.

Many newer sites (including some that I've never heard of until today) = lots of CW, EU, prequels.  Podcasting based sites also seem to skew towards EU/CW.

Grumble Grumble...Revan?  Seriously?

Someone pointed me to the JediBusiness 6" poll results - they have Revan (Reborn) at #3 and Revan (NOT Reborn) at #6.  I don't even know what that means... ???

C-3PO is a repaint.  Best paint update they made is coloring his knee the correct silver color.  TVC version had an incorrectly colored gold knee.
