I had to vote for Yarna D'al Gargan.  Sorry, ICMG is just too easy of a custom for me if I really want the figure.  Yarna is not and deserves a figure IMO.  At least I voted for an OT character.  Hell, I can still rememeber in 1983 seeing ROTJ in the theatre and thinking to myself, Who in the hell is that ugly chick??  ICMG wasn't a character that meant anything to me or that I remember seeing when I was that young.  So I'm going for something I remember from my childhood here, though I do think the whole poll thing is probably rigged.

I'm surprised Yarna hasn't been made yet.  She came close to having a figure back in the vintage days.  If she was almost worth a figure back then, she should have certainly been worth one by now.

3. Clone Commander (Galactic Marine pictured)
4. Commander Neyo
5. Corran Horn
7. Darth Maul (Why?!?)
11. Hermi Odle
15. Kir Kanos
16. Kyle Katarn (Jedi)
17. Luke Skywalker (ROTJ)
18. Mara Jade Skywalker
20. Padme Amidala (snowsuit)
21. Padme Amidala (AOTC black dress)
22. Padme Amidala (ROTS funeral)
23. Quinlan Vos (who woulda thunk it?)
25. Yarna D'al Gargan (6-breasted dancer)

Just to be clear, I understand that people really want a figure and I'd like to see all of the above.  I also don't think I need to use a vote on anything listed above to see it made over the next couple of years. 

I'll also clarify I spend little time on EU stuff, so if I had half a clue who many of the EU Darths were, I might want those too.  But I just can't stop thinking that if THAT MUCH EU stuff made the list, Hasbro's not just going to ignore it, especially as we move further out from the movies.  I can see EU-related waves fairly soon, around 2007.  All those Solos, Katarn, Darth whatever.  They'll come, just wait and see. 

As for making a custom figure of ICMG, sure, go ahead.  But I don't do customizing.  I'm lazy, I have other things that take up my time, whatever the reason, the only way I'm going to get an ICMG is to do it through this process.  And Hasbro gets annoyed too.  Sorry, but that's worth passing on figures I may really rather see made.

Ayup, and that's another good reason to vote ICMG, just to prove it's really rigged.

I'm a big fan of ice cream, as well as those who make it.  So he's got my vote.

It looks like you can vote more than once from your PC?

Maybe for the EU category, they could add in Rykrof Enloe for the next one.   :-*

Great advertisement Scott, it should make the front page here.  Jayson did that for Yakface.  ;)

If you can vote more than once from the same PC/Terminal, doesn't that lead you to believe the poll is fixed?  :-\

Yeah it probably is... if Scott can push his political agenda with ICMG, I'm sure there are many others doing the same thing lurking in the shadows.   ;D

I ended up voting for Hermi Odle.  I just want him more than Yarna and ICMG.  I don't really buy into rumors we're getting him quite yet.  I heard that about the Tonnika Sisters to and still don't see anything concrete.  It's all vague info.

I  checked  out  the  list  and  I  voted  on  what  I  would  like  to  own  the  most;

Padme,  in  black  gown

Good  luck  for  Hood,  though,  and  sorry,  I  think  Yarna  would  be  the  biggest  peg-warmer  ever,  cuz  after  we  all  have  ours  the  kids  aren't  gonna  pick  up  the  rest.

I'll gladly buy 4-5 Yarna figures for customs, would love to have a group of obese women for custom fodder.

I 100% agree with that.

Looks like we are going to get another round of people we see in the movie for 5 seconds again for this years fan choice.....


I don't know about you, but I voted for Luke Skywalker because he is a figure we actually need improvement and a new sculpt for. Not the fat 6-boob lady or that stupid ice cream guy.
