gotta love these choices... especially the "Ion Control Panel or other random computer console."   Probably boring to some, but I'd love to have a cool Hoth Control Room diorama.

7)  SA Hoth Rebel Tech...  Boring as he may be.  Removable hat, headset, chair, tools...  He could double as a command center tech with the gear.

8 ) SA Hoth Leia...  Include Ion Control Panel or other random computer console and maybe a chair.

Does that mean that you did not like the POTJ Dagobah Vader?  B/c it is one of the best figures of that line.
You are never alone when there's a clone.

Great choices, but c'mon ICMG should be at the number #1 spot.
I like the idea of a SA Hoth Rebel trooper, the last one was so...munchkin compared to other figures.

Wow, a couple of often requested figures from last time didn't even make the cut this time?

#3 Bespin Guard
#7 Captain Needa

Guess everyone changed their minds about wanting that black Bespin guard?  And did Veers and Jerjerrod making it out this year dampen everyone's desire for Needa?

And how the hell did so many Lukes end up on that list?   >:(

There is a cluster at #11-#15 including Hoth Han, Hoth Leia, Bespin Guard and Needa

I think this was the tightest vote ever

I dont think Needa fell that much. I just think there are a lot of favorable choices which are very close

It's kind of interesting how Empire is considered the best SW film by many, but has the fewest figure choices.

The coolest part about empire is that it was so remote on all its locations.
Still waiting for a kick ass Han Bespin and Luke Bespin. I hope that the wave 2 VOTC Bespin Luke rumor is true.
Han Bespin really needs the SA treatment. I am way bored of the POTJ one......

1.VOTC/SA Bespin Luke
2.VOTC/SA Bespin Han
3.VOTC/SA 4-LOM
4.VOTC/SA Zuckuss
5.VOTC/SA Bossk
6.VOTC/SA Dengar

Yes, I am a slave to the VOTC line.  I am getting to the point where I would rather pay up the butt then buy kit-bashed figures with bad sculpts.
