The latest update:

  • Mara Jade: 1475
  • Kir Kanos: 1373
  • Asajj Ventress: 1142
  • Padme Amidala: 1098 (A JUMP OF NEAR 300 VOTES!!!)
  • Quinlan Vos: 1030
  • Grand Admiral Thrawn: 753


I can't believe Thrawn is last place. :-\

I can't believe Padme jumped 300 votes. Hacker maybe? I hope Asajj wins it all now that Quinlan hasn't have a ghost of a chance.

I wanted Thrawn to win, but I'd be very happy to see Mara Jade continue her winning ways.

Thrawn is so '90s. :P The others (with the possible exception of Kir Kanos) are current or at least more recent characters; thus more popular among newer fans and more "on the radar" for even old-school fans.

Mara Jade: perenially popular due to NJO, etc.

Asajj Ventress: 2003 - present

Padme Amidala: 1999 - present, and the "snow bunny" outfit in question is from 2004

Quinlan Vos: 2000 - present, not to mention a popularity boost from dialogue mention and almost a cameo in ROTS

Kir Kanos: last appearance in 2000-something, right? Anyway, I bet a lot of people are simply voting because they want a Royal Guard, not because of any attachment to the character.

Grand Admiral Thrawn: last novel appearance in 1999--and that's if you count Flim the impostor and that unfinished clone.

Padme has moved all the way from last and is making a run for first! 

Thrawn's still in last.  :'(

I don't get that, she is a main Character, only she is in an EU outfit. They'll probably make her eventually anyways, so why not vote for someone who is actually EU?

It's going to be funny to hear all these people complain how bad the face will be on either Mara or Padme. Sideshow cannot do female heads for anything.

One week left - Mara Jade's lead is down to only 14 votes!

  • Mara Jade: 1782
  • Padme Amidala: 1768
  • Kir Kanos: 1649
  • Asajj Ventress: 1362
  • Quinlan Vos: 1332
  • Grand Admiral Thrawn: 1132

It's going to be funny to hear all these people complain how bad the face will be on either Mara or Padme. Sideshow cannot do female heads for anything.

Until last week, I would have agreed with you.  But after seeing the upcoming Leia statue, I've changed my mind.

Since I voted for Padme, I hope she wins (I thought she'd be in last place) but I bet you they end up doing both.

Sideshows statues are great. The 12" female figures are awful.

Just a reminder that today is the last day to vote. Gets your vote in if you haven't.

Check back next Friday the 11th to see which figure will be the first that goes into production!

Come on Padme!  :)

Well...who do you think won?  I am hoping for Mara since it looks like the one I voted for (Thrawn) is never gonna come close.
