Im in the minority here probably but wished they left out all the EU, ewok films, cartoons,  comics, etc.  Call me a purist.  I think it should of been limited to the 6 films.

Im with Matt and picked Yarna Gargan.  It was between her and Wioslea.  I dont think either will ever be made except through some type of poll :-\

Also, voting can be rigged just like it seemed to be for some of the other polls.  Some people may vote multiple times using various email accounts ???

The top 25 does seem designed to provide them with ammunition going foward, which is why I'd like to see Dorme place.  Competition will be fierce.

I'm going to be hitting every random IP I can to vote for my character(s) I believe. :)

But yeah, the voting is on...  I wonder who will make the top 25?  Should be interesting.

I agree that the "25 top picks" thing produces a lot of marketing data.  And headaches for the tabulators.  And tons and tons of anticipation for the fans.  It's all going to get crazier once they announce the 25.  We fans will go even more nuts.

I had thought of Dorme too, maybe with a Smoldering Hair! action feature.  But then I cut her, along with some others who: A) Were too easy for Hasbro to make (Imperial commanders or blonde Rebel on Tantive IV); B) Would be better with the company of other overlooked figures (any of the Lars family from the prequels); C) Might be on Hasbro's to-do list anyway (Commander Neyo); D) Are boring (Although a U-3PO would take the piss out of the eBay poachers selling TC-14); or E) Are Quinlan Vos or obscure-a*s aliens.  Obscure-a*s aliens do not concern me, and QV will get plenty of votes.

Anyway, here is my shortlist:

 - MCQUARRIE CONCEPT VADER
 - GENERAL TAGGE
 - BASTILA SHAN (KOTOR)
 - DARTH REVAN (KOTOR)
 - FX-6 (OTHER ROTS MEDICAL DROID)
 - ICE CREAM MAKER GUY (http://www.geocities.com/ocb75/)
 - BIGGS DARKLIGHTER (ACADEMY UNIFORM)

Any thoughts?  Is anyone else supporting these?

P.S. Kelly MacDonald makes my heart melt.

My thoughts are all over the place.  I've yet to vote...  Right now in my mind I have:

-Kyle Katarn (Jedi Knight)
-Super Art. Rebel Fleet Trooper
-Super Art. Hoth Rebel Soldier
-Hermi Odle (gotta love the anti-Odle dips who just can't leave a thread alone and be civil)
-West End Games Space"Storm"Trooper

And I have to admit a Concept Vader's been on my mind but I doubt I go for that...  Other things are too important to me whereas Vader I'd live without if it didn't happen.  Cool if it did, but if it doesn't I'll live.

Other figures pop in but those are some of my all-time wants really.  Figures that, if the line ended (short of the Spacetrooper really though) I'd probably be upset without them ever happening on some level...

There's a couple mains on my wants list too, but word is the ones i want the most very well may happen so I dunno.  Main characters always just strike me as such likely choices to happen...  It's the army builders that have been shafted over the years the most to me, and Katarn just NEEDS a good figure.  He's an EU Icon to me and his figure is cool to have but doesn't do him any justice as an action figure.

Lots and lots of choices and it's killing me.

Those were the two that I originally though about. But the more I though about them, the more it seemed to me that Hasbro will eventually make those. I finally settled on Grizz Frix, the black rebel pilot from who dies at Endor. I really can't him being made without this kind of support

I had never heard of him.  Thanks for the tip!  Chances are slim, though.

Jesse, I think our only chance for the SA troops is if Hasbro made a Rebel Evolution with the Fleet, Hoth, and Endor troopers.

My Prediction of the top 5* :

1. Yarna D'al Gargan 
2. Quinlan Vos
3. Hermi Odle
4. ICMG
5. Sgt. Doallyn

* I'm also predicting the Tonnika Sisters will be suspiciously absent from the finals.

Yeah!  I even have shelf space for Ice Cream Maker Guy, right behind all the other ESB characters.  I can't say that abt most of the others I WOULD like.

So I voted for ICE CREAM MAKER GUY, and got a friend to put in for MCQUARRIE CONCEPT DARTH VADER.

I voted for Bom Vimdin. I don't expect him to be able to stand against Quinlan or ICMG, but I'm hoping he at least makes it on the final list somewhere.

I have three active email addresses (four if you count the one I don't use any more, and five if you count the school-issue addy I set to forward to one of my others). Clearly it's unethical to vote multiple times for the same character, but just how unethical would it be to cast three votes for three separate characters? I'm conflicted ... please advise....
