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
3. Admiral Daala
4. Toryn Farr
5. Jan Ors
6. Joruus C'baoth
7. Emperor Roan Fel
8. Ann/Tann Gella
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.
