I'd take the Sandtrooper, Dave, if you want to go for it a split costs.

Done deal.  You get the Sandtrooper for $30 and I get the other three figures for $30, right?   ;)

Good one!  I was going to give you $45 for the one.  ;)

But Dave's assessment is pretty much spot on, just switch the Sandie with the astromech for me

So next year, if there is a poll, Hasbro is suggesting to vote for the obscure OT, PT or anything Rebels, TCW, or EU?

The aft section of the ship looks... Klingon!

I've not read up on Discovery so I'm not sure where in the timeline this stands, but if it's after the Klingon/Federation peace treaty, it might make sense for them to collaborate the best of both's technologies when producing a starship.  I think the saucer section seems a little small, but I'm interested in learning more about the show now.  I half expected to see the Starfleet and Klingon sigils combined on that ship.  And the music makes this seem a more militaristic themed show.

I'd take an Obi-Wan (and Kylo if they have him) if anyone has time.

Dengar for me, too.  Gotta love the comments on the SW site.

I'd like the EE one at that price.

I really like Jeff's list.  I'd definitely like a retail release of Han in Carbonite, too.

Another thing with EU-type of winners: people will happy someone wins but then complain about the headache of trying to find the figure in store or online for a reasonable price because the scalpers eat them right up.  I don't really understand the EU hype, but that's me, and I'm happier for it since I haven't had my universe destroyed by the Disney purchase.  But I'm also happy for those that get their figures too.

Those are interesting numbers, Jeff.  With the new trilogy, I bought more 6" figures than I had thought I would...probably all but 5.  But only 1 OT & PT figure were released in the line (not including the two multi-packs) and the two Rebels figures (so far).  I guess 1 prequel figure makes sense since Disney wanted to distance itself from that trilogy... But there are some cool characters to come from those movies.

It also makes sense being a movie year that more of the focus is on that movie, but I really hope that Hasbro focuses on central figures in the movie than say lesser ones like Zuvio, Asty, or Guavian until the movie is out for a while to gauge their popularity accurately.  Maybe get some of the heroes and villains out and mix from the OT, PT and Rebels or EU in the next couple waves since the characters of the new movie aren't yet established? 

I see their viewpoint, too, but on the other hand, it's a fan poll so people can choose who they want, so people should be happy fans listed their choice and up-voted the choices others put down.  One might not agree with people's candidates but at least Hasbro has these polls.  I think Star Wars fans are some of the biggest complainers out there.

I just wonder if Hasbro would do Darth Talon if there were issues with Slave Leia's outfit and the resulting outcry from some in the public.

That's a nice list of figures I would buy.  Already one site's members are complaining about results, such as why (waste a) vote for obvious candidates.  Vote for X Obscure/EU character.

Apparently it was Simon Pegg's idea and intended as a homage to Takei, but when Takei found out LAST YEAR, he expressed his displeasure with Sulu being gay and did his best to convince Cho to go another route.

Considering all this and that Simon was one of the writers, why didn't he volunteer his character, Scotty, to be gay?  I mean, instead of disagreeing with George on the reasonings, he could have easily change which characters was gay, instead of disregarding George's wish.

My top 10 list

1. Padme Amidala (Meadow Picnic)
2. Sim Aloo (Imperial Dignitary)
3. Sate Pestage (Imperial Dignitary)
4. Ars Dangor (Imperial Dignitary)
5. Princess Leia (Ultimate Sculpt Bespin Capture)
6. Uncle Owen
7. Modal Nodes Biths (with instrument pack-ins)
8. Tonnika Sisters
9. Aunt Beru (resculpt)
10. Princess Leia (SA) (Tantive IV)

9. AT-AT Driver

Psst.  This one's confirmed  ;)
