Results!!
#01 Bastila Shan
#02 Corran Horn
#03 Jacen Solo
#04 Jaina Solo
#05 K'kruhk
#06 Clone Trooper (Scuba Gear)
#07 Grand Admiral Thrawn
#08 IG Lancer Droid
#09 Lumiya
#10 Noghri

This is a pretty decent list.  I like all of these, except the scuba gear clone.  I'm a little cloned out...just waiting for the day when we see "wild safari clone trooper", "park ranger clone trooper," & "speedy oil change clone trooper."

Got 1 out of 10 for me, but atleast it was the #1 spot overall.

Too bad another lame clone made the list.

I voted for Bastila and she won! Yipee!

Theyre making a Thrawn in 08, its been confirmed, so I feel this slot shouldve been filled by a more deserving character with fewer chances of being made. Oh well, at least Bastila, SCUBA clone, and K'Kruhk are on it!

PS I dont give a rats behind about the Solo kids.

PS We don't care.

Well at least one of mine made it on the list.

3 out of 10?  Not terrible I guess, but the ones that I'm really attached to didn't place.

I would so much rather have the Solo kids than our 59th clone trooper, this time with flippers.  ::)

Interesting, but predictable that it turned out this way.  I think this demonstrates that once we got through the hottest EU interests this year - Quinlan Vos, Darth Revan, etc. that the interest gets much more splintered beyond that, as there is just so much material - personally I like the results as it largely MAIN characters that have recurred throughout the EU - although largely in the books.  I'd get most if not all of those.

Although I'm glad to be moving back to movie based lists  ;D

I'd buy them all too even though none were my choices. If they do the solo kids they need to do all three. I just really want to see Shadows of the Empire figures updated or at least completed like Guri and Leebo. I always liked the Tales of the Jedi and old time stories so hope to see some of that.

I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed that Thrawn placed in the poll.  The EU is so expansive that you would think that the top ten would be exclusively characters that have never been made before.  Sure, there have been plenty of other characters in the other polls that have been produced before, but in this case I feel like voting for a new Thrawn is a little bit of a waste.

I thought Thrawn was confirmed at some point (in one of the Q&A's)

Really?  I can see it as part of a comic 2-pack if Hasbro wants to revisit Heir To The Empire, but certainly not as part of the Basic Figure line.

I thought I heard something THrawn-ish mentioned as coming at some point too in the Q&A as well.

I voted for Katarn as a resculpt, but only because the original Katarn's really not true to the character at all.  Thrawn's not bad really but Kyle was a ways off the mark, and a weird hybrid of the Kyle from the two games at the time.
