True enough. However, there is such a thing as taking the high road.

Is it the high road or is it conceding defeat before even starting the battle? :P

I finally made my choice, and I chose Darth Malak.  This was a tough poll, because I think there were a number of good choices.  Here's my methodology...

The Clones - Both of these Clones are bound to be made.  Hasbro has come to recognize just how much of a market there is for Clone Troopers, so I think that both Commander Neyo and the Galactic Marine are bound to be made by Hasbro within at least the next couple of years.

Luke Throne Room Duel - This figure has got to be in the pipeline.  There's been enough whining and complaining about it that it's bound to be made in a form that's similar to that of the VOTC line.  Just give it some time.

Ultimate Darth Maul - This figure's already been done.  You know, in the Sith Lords Evolution set.

Kir Kanos - The rumors have been around since last year that this is going to be an Entertainment Earth exclusive.  Why waste the vote?

Quinlan Vos - Out of all of the EU figures, I think this one has the best likelihood of being made.

Clone Wars Padme - I think the Clone Wars animated line has some legs.  The demand for the WalMart 3-packs was pretty serious.  There are bound to be some more Clone Wars animated figures at some point, and I think Padme is bound to be part of that.

Padme in black leather - Uhhhh... why does this sound like a fanboy's disgusting little fantasy?  Just the seediness of this makes me turn away from it.

Dead Padme - Yeah, this is what we need.  An action figure of a CORPSE.  An action figure of a woman who died in childbirth.  How pleasant.   ::)

The NJO characters - I hate to lump them all together, but I really have no connection with the NJO characters.  As such I can't invest the vote with these characters.

Kyle Katarn - We already have a Kyle Katarn.  Do we really need another?

Mara Jade Skywalker - Same deal as Kyle Katarn.  I'd rather have an all new figure than another version of a character that I don't read that much about.

Corran Horn - I seriously thought about voting for Horn.  I've heard the name over and over again, but the thing is, I haven't read a single thing featuring Corran Horn.  Haven't read about you, not voting for you.  Sorry dude.

Hermi Odle - This figure very nearly got my vote.  I think that a fan poll would put this figure over the top.  In fact, I think this one may win the poll, or at the very least get some serious consideration from Hasbro at some point in time.  I decided to invest my vote otherwise.

Yarna d'al Gargan - There have been a lot of calls for this figure over the years.  Why, I don't know.  This is quite possibly the ugliest character ever in the Star Wars universe.  And franky, I don't want to get that vomit taste in my mouth when I look at my Jabba's palace diorama.

Ice Cream Maker Guy - I know there's been a buzz about this guy from a number of collectors on a number of forums.  But you know what?  It's not even a choice for me.  It's kitschy and weird, but seriously, this is like having a Marvel Avengers or Fantastic Four toy line and having a Willie Lumpkin (the mailman) figure.  It's become an inside joke and just isn't that funny, just as most inside jokes aren't funny.

The KOTOR characters - This is where I decided to invest my vote.  I weighed the choices pretty well.  There's Darth Nihilus.  He's an incredibly cool looking character.  But he doesn't seem that important in the grand scheme of KOTOR II.  Darth Sion seems like a better choice, but he didn't even make the finals.  HK-47 is cool, but definitely an ancillary character.  Bastilla is cool, but not as important a character as the two Sith lords in this game.  Revan?  You ARE Revan if you've ever played KOTOR.  Thing is you just don't know it until late in the game, and the character isn't readily identifiable since there are a number of variables you can choose in building your player character.  The only option is to choose Revan as his Dark Lord persona with a mask.  You only get to see that in flashbacks.  With all of that in mind, I chose Darth Malak.  He seems like the most identifiable of the KOTOR characters.  Here's hoping that he wins.

A person of nobility and worthy of selection of Fan's Choice would have saved poor stupid Jar Jar from Sebulba instead of just sitting and watching.  You should be ashamed Kevin.  >:(

Yeah , that's a fair logical comparison....
" the empire is taking over the city you should evacuate immediately"
...really ICMG shouldn't run..he should face his problems and face the empire with his ICM and commit guaranteed suicide ::)

Meanwhile..with jediskills and a lightsaber..Vos can pretty much choose what he wants to do...including finish off his subway's sandwitch :P

Are you as big as an ******* in the real world as you are here?

Seriously. Try and come off as less of a dick

That analogy was illogical and unneeded

Oh come on, people are taking this WAY to seriously.  Kevin's joking... it's a JOKE.  Why are people getting so offended and calling each other names over this?  I really think some people need to quit the name calling and take things a little more light hearted.

What a shame.

Perhaps I should have added one of these at the end of my post -  ;).  All in good fun.

Jesse, my comment wasn't directed at you.  I know well enough to know you're joking around and a "mad smiley" is no big deal.

I just don't see why some other people are calling members names over the whole fans choice deal and are showing such hate for someone because they have a differnet opinion (or have a sense of humor). 

It's happened in two threads about this now in the past 24 hours, here towards Kevin and in another towards me.    I'm wondering if I should just stay in the customizing section maybe where I usually do, because I'm close to saying some things I probably shouldn't and don't want to offend anyone.

Holy Cr@p, Batman!  I don't think Chewie's reply was to your comment Jesse.  I was going to stay out of all the various forums for a simple fan choice figure.  Darth Slothus, you can't be serious here???  Sorry to call you out, but your post was totally out of line for someone that has been around long enough to post 1200+ posts.  Kevin's post was all in good fun and I found it amusing.  I'm not using my vote for EU, cuz that's just not me, but I understand why any EU fan would.  If I was creative enough and one of the choices stood out enough for me to rally support, I'd hope I could come up with something like that for my "candidate".

I didn't call you any names.  I said you were being dense, which you were.

I think Justins comment was more directed at Slothus just below you.

I'll glady reply in a civilized manner:

Oh, gee. You got me. You used my favorite character, and brought up my business without actually mentioning it, and oh, ****, the misspelling of "Sandwich" on my business' sign. Plus you tried to use my own words against me. Good play.

Thank you obi-dad, Jesse, and Justin for having a God damned sense of humor. Matt, thanks for clearing up that about not name calling, as well, so I didn't need to. Urb, thank you for proving me right.
