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.
