That's about right, it's getting Hasbro to do something they otherwise wouldn't.  Thinking about the fans choice selections thus far are there really any huge surprises?  

Ellors Madak - they made a Cantina alien, I'm shocked.
Amanaman - they made an alien from Jabba's palace, I'm shocked.
Ephant Mon - they made an alien from Jabba's palace, I'm shocked.

I look at the top 25, I think about another 12 years of Hasbro licensing and I think what won't get made in that time.  I don't think ooh, ooh, ooh, I really want to get this figure now and I can't possibly wait 2 years until they make it ::) :P

3. Clone Commander (Galactic Marine pictured)
4. Commander Neyo

Yeah, they won't possibly make those without the fans clamoring for them ::)

1. Anakin Solo
2. Bastila Shan
5. Corran Horn
13. Jacen Solo
14. Jaina Solo
16. Kyle Katarn (Jedi)
17. Luke Skywalker (ROTJ)
18. Mara Jade Skywalker
23. Quinlan Vos

Ooh, Jedi Knights, those are a fairly rare commodity, aren't they ::)  Never mind we have Luke, Mara and Kyle already.  Leaving the rest for an eventual EU wave/subline makes waaaaaaay too much sense.  Yeah, I understand the appeal of Quinlan Vos and Corran Horn.  Hell, I love the character of Mara Jade, but gee, I already have one (two actually, loose and carded) so why rush another one out?

Along that note

7. Darth Maul

Shake your head kiddies.  He died, get over it.  You want a good one, but the damn evolution pack with him in it ::)

And speaking of Darths or maybe just Sith/bad dudes in general...

6. Darth Malak
8. Darth Nihilus
9. Darth Revan
10. Exar Kun
19. Nom Anor

Hey, let's make a subline of Sith Lords to sell from the EU, after all, fans are clamoring for them :-X

Moving on...
11. Hermi Odle
25. Yarna D'al Gargan

See my early comments above.  Someone say something about seconds of screen time?  Nah, never mind.  I'd buy these anyway but something from Jabba's palace won't get made unless the fans demand it?

Padme can't get no love (well, the pregnant toy might disprove that notion) at least that's what the fanboys shout...
20. Padme Amidala (snowsuit)
21. Padme Amidala (AOTC black dress)
22. Padme Amidala (ROTS funeral)

Twelve.  Years.  You don't think those won't get made?  

Who'd I leave out?

12. HK-47 -  what, we can't come up with a KOTOR wave in 12 years?
15. Kir Kanos - well he's sort of lonely, isn't he?

And oh!!11! ::)  That leaves us with ICMG.  
He's a guaranteed peg warmer.
He's had milliseconds of screen time and is otherwise unremarkable (hey wait, doesn't that ensure he should be made?)

But wait...
A fan started the whole notion.
There's a pretty good petition out there.
There's no video game to support the fanboy syndrome for him.
There's no comic appearances to support him.  
It'll really stick it to Hasbro if he wins, they'll have to be dishonest and say he didn't win and make something else, probably with the prefix Darth attached to it ::)

If you want to fire your vote off onto a figure that's going to eventually be made (12 years!), go right ahead.  If you can't see Hasbro exploiting the potential for this poll and are desperate to see some EU figure (which I'm going to go out on a limb and say the EU figure and/or waves will peg warm as well) then go for it.  Vote for someone that would have been made anyway (Quinlan Vos/Hermi Odle/Yarna D'al Gargan).  Be my guest.  Be a good little sheep, just like Hasbro wants you to.   :-*

Quote
Like I said, tough call.  My reasons for voting for each character are completely different.  I'll be thinking this one over for a while.
I thought you dropped the majority of the 3.75" line save your Vader focus? :-* ;)

Fight the machine baby :-X

Exactly.

My gut told me to vote for Neyo or the red snow trooper, but then I realized that Hasbro will most likely do these guys without the fans telling them to.

You have to vote for the most obscure character - ICMG fits the bill quite well.
