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!
