Vintage Kenner / Re: Modern Vintage Repros

That will only be a problem if these don't yellow first. They are bootlegs so the chances that they are made from poor quality plastic is rather good.

Same as last year.

1. Padme Amidala (Arena)
2. Cliegg Lars
3. Tikkes
4. Padme Amidala (Loyalist Committee)
5. Jar Jar Binks (Loyalist Committee)
6. Dorme (Loyalist Committee)
7. Gilramos Libkath
8. Rogwa Wodrata
9. Onaconda Farr
10. Jocasta Nu

I saw that someone voted for Coleman Kcaj in the AOTC poll.  IIRC, he only appears in REVENGE OF THE SITH, and in hologram form only.
No, he is really there when Anakin in being named to the council.

The full results will be in a future SW Insider issue. Probably the next one coming out in May.

Looks like it might be time to update this. The TVC Deleted Scene Jedi Luke is now the perfect fit as a counterpart for the Vintage Jedi Luke.
Not perfect. The robe is the wrong style.

141
Jabba's guard is named Chokk.

If they do ever remake Senator Palpatine they should include the robe he wore in the senate. Amidala too.

142
1. Kitster & Wald
2. PK Droids
3. Padme Amidala (Handmaiden)
4. Nute Gunray {with Mechno-Chair}
5. Anakin Skywalker
6. Depa Billaba
7. Padme Amidala (Theed Battle)
8. Aldar Beedo
9. Elan Mak
10. Ark "Bumpy" Roose

Emperor's Wrath Vader really threw me off... sort of a weird choice. It'll be interesting to see what the card looks like. No ball-joint hips on this one, which is disappointing. I wonder why they sculpted his right hand a fist instead of sculpting a mechanical stump, which would be screen accurate. Maybe the hand is removeable.
Looks like it to me. The wrist looks thicker than it should be.

144
I know that Podracing Ani and C-3PO are out this year, but aren't they just repacks of the E1 sculpt? If it's not, then I'll change my vote.
Yes the ones in the battlepack are just repaints. The Anakin in MH line is new but it actually has less articulation than the last one we got in 2000.

It still doesn't fix the problem that the actress could sue. She would lose the lawsuit but Lucasfilm and Hasbro would still have to pay for the defense. So it just isn't worth the trouble for them. If it was they would have made the one that they do have the likeness rights to already.

The other main difference between the Endor Troopers is the backpacks. Vintage has the bag version and PotF2 has the green Hoth version.

I know in the TPM video game he's short. So I think he is supposed to be shorter but maybe not that short. On Wookieepia it lists his height as 1.5 the same as Leia.

Is the Jar Jar rumor implying Vinty or what?  He's coming in the Movie Heroes line, which that figure jived pretty well (from what I saw) with our rumor report prior to NYCC.  Jar Jar is already coming out in 2012 though, as we saw at NYCC, so that's confusing.
I've been expecting there to be a vintage Jar Jar since I saw the MH one. We knew back in 2010 that there was Jar Jar planned for early 2011 but got pushed back because of the 3D release. I had assumed at SDCC when it wasn't shown to be in the 2012 TPM wave that it had been moved into MH but that one is obviously not it.

Interesting to note the people who did well in my compiled poll but did not make Hasbro's final 20:
- Ann/Tann Gella (17th in my compiled results)
- Nohgri Warrior (19th in my compiled results)
- Tonnika Sisters (tied 20th)

Not sure how many other sites out there voted, but someone must have been rooting for Pellaeon for him to jump into the top 20 the way he did... 
The Gellas could be explained by Lichtgeschwindigkeit.de results. They posted them in alphabetical order but it looks like they probably submitted them correctly.
1. Captain/Admiral Gilad Pellaeon
2. Guri
3. Admiral Daala
4. Toryn Farr
5. Jan Ors
6. Joruus C'baoth
7. Emperor Roan Fel
8. Ann/Tann Gella
9. Jaxxon
10. Emperor Palpatine with Throne

But that also knocks out Palpatine. And it doesn't explain Pellaeon since they are the only site that voted for him. There has to be at least one other site.

And his shoulders, arm, and side of his head.
