Here are the current top 5 (not in order :P)

Blue Snaggletooth
Chewbacca (Early Bird)
Graxol Kelvyyn
Sio Bibble
Stormtrooper (VOTC)

The top 10 has been pretty consistent.  There are a clump of figures around 9-10 that could easily sneak in to the top 10 with a few more votes.  I you haven't voted yet, what are you waiting for?



We have a new top 5 (again in no order)

Blue Snaggletooth
Chewbacca (Early Bird)
Graxol Kelvyyn
Stormtrooper (VOTC)
Zev Senesca


Voting ends tomorrow!

SSG is including the holographic Nute Gunray as a possible figure for their lists. I would love to see that get released.

Damn, wish I had put that in my list. Oh well, hopefully Hasbro will have the sense of releasing it someday.

Don't bother, I doubt that figure is eligible.  They clearly state that the figure must have been released as basic figures, Vintage figures, vehicle drivers, or released as part of a multi-figure set prior to March 2007.

Rules/Clarifications:

- Eligible Figures:  All other 3-3/4" figures that were either released as basic figures, Vintage figures, vehicle drivers, or released as part of a multi-figure set prior to March 2007. Exclusives and other sets whose figure are eligible for consideration include Republic Commandos, Death Star Briefing Room, the Saga Tins, Zev Senesca, the figures from the Toys R 'Us AT-AT, and the like. Pretty much all other figures are fair game!

Last time I checked, Holographic Nute Gunray was never ever released, thereby making him ineligible.  Nice to toss on the list to get Hasbro aware of demand for him I guess, but ultimately ineligible.  I see a lot of people voting for figures with suggested repaints or kitbashes or whatever, but don't be surprised if Hasbro drops those even if they get enough votes...

I think the list turned out pretty good, I know I'd be happy with those figures.  I just hope the final results (from all of the sites) come out somewhat similar.  It is surprising to me how different the results have been from some of the other sources I've seen.  Personally, I've had enough of the clone repaints that I don't necessarily need to see more of them in Legends, but there seems to be a lot of other people who would rather see things like the Covert Ops Clone and other repainted ROTS clonetroopers.  I like the make up of the JD list, and if nothing else, I really hope EB Chewie makes it into the assortment.

These choices are great for us, but it's a deadend wave of figures for the causual collector.

Waiting on the following sites to report in (if you spot their top ten lists, please post them in this thread so we can all see and compare. This should give us a good indication of which figures Hasbro is likely to pick from):
www.Yakface.com (here's the link to their forum thread that will most likely show the results: http://cgi.denpetersen.com/YAK1/viewtopic.php?t=1973&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=30&sid=1257fc6b7fb144a6f4c1706db8d750a4 )
www.4-inches.de
www.Actionfigs.com (possibly-not sure if they are contributing to the poll)
http://jediinsider.com/

If there are any other "official" collecting sites I missed, please feel free to post them here too.

So far it looks like the following are getting the most attention from the sites combined:
Graxol Kelvyyn (TPM Watto's Box Cinema Scene)
Zev Senesca
Spacetrooper
Shadow Stormtrooper

What's good about those four is that it's very diverse! An EpI fig, who'd have thunk it, heh heh. Two EU figs! And an OT Rebel Pilot...Hoth one to boot. All good selection, IMHO.

That actually bodes well for the whole line, since it shows we do indeed like EpI as well as EU and that the OT still holds our attention.
