Chewie
Col. Henrik Wulf Yularen
Ephant Mon
Zev Senesca
Blue Snag

The cynic in me would love to see the POTJ Bespin Guard win.  On the new 30AC cardbacks, it'd look great hanging on the pegs. . .  . . .right next to the original POTJ Bespin Guards, which are still pegwarming at TRUs all across the country, six years later.

I was stoked to see R3-A2 sneak back into the mix, after being pretty disappointed that the HTF astromech didn't make the initial cut.  That definitely gets one of my votes.  It sucks to see the black Bespin Guard get nixed, though it technically never should've been in there in the first place since it wasn't going to be a straight re-pack.  That POTJ Bespin Guard kinda sucked though, so hopefully we get the black dude (and a couple other ethnic variants) in a more ESB screen accurate format later on.  What's absolutely lame is that Hasbro left that old POTJ Bespin Guard in their list of finalists, since I'm quite sure no one wants more of that piece of crap, and it's going to finish dead last in the voting.  Wasted a good spot in the list that should've gone to another candidate.  Sad to see all those Spacetrooper votes go to waste as well, since that figure probably finished first in the voting overall.  All that said, here's my final Top 5 list, in order of preference:

Zutton (Blue Snaggletooth)
R3-A2 (Battle of Hoth multi-pack)
Zev Senesca (Snowspeeder Pilot)
Chewbacca (Early Bird kit)
Colonel Wulf Yalaren (Death Star Briefing)

While I'd love to see the VOTC Stormie dumped back into regular (basic figure) rotation sooner than later (I still expect later at some point), I've got plenty of loose ones already, plus he was already offered on a card.  For this poll, I'm mostly interested in seeing OT figures offered on a card for the first time ever, hence my selections above.  It'll be interesting to see what happens...  Not much time left to vote though, so get your butts over to Hasbro and vote for my selections before it's over!  :P

So, shouldn't we be hearing the results of this before too long?  I don't remember exactly when it was, but I thought that September 24th was the "closing day" of the poll, but that might not be right.  Hopefully we'll hear soon who won, and hopefully EB Chewie made the cut :).

How about now?   :D

1. Shadow Stormtrooper
2. Commander Neyo
3. Covert Ops Clone Trooper
4. Utapau Shadow Trooper
5. Zev Senesca


Very disappointed in the results...  4 more clones/troopers?  Yuck.

I agree with Jeff and evenflow. The results suck. Hasbro's going to release clone variant after clone variant, after stormtrooper variant after stormtrooper variant anyway because they are big sellers to army builders and kids (and I suppose completionists).

But I should be happy for those like Mike that want them. It was a democratic process and the voices were heard.

I, too, should be happy for those who voted more more clones, but I'm not.  There were several rare figures on the list that I think should have won, but oh well.  I just saved more money.  I shelled out the dough when the shadow stormtrooper was an exclussive, but can't imagine buying more to open, since they're not in the movies and that's what I base my purchases on.

I am very disappointed with the results.  What.  Ever.   ::)  Hasbro won't need to do a Clone Wars line next year - Star Wars is virtually an all clones line as it is.

The only one from that list I really can't stand seeing re-released is the Covert Ops clone, that is probably the lamest paintjob for a clone Hasbro has ever invented.

I'm VERY happy to see Neyo won, but I'm really upset that Blue Snaggletooth and Wulf Yularen didn't win. Those two could have and should have been on that list in place of Covert Ops clone and Utapau Shadow Trooper. What a bummer!
