Pretty nice list.  I'd probably take out Wioslea, Brainiac (never payed much attention to him in the movie), and the Tonnika sisters (since Hasbro is adamant about not giving them to us), and I'd replace them with Yerka Mig, Red Leader's R5, and a black-suited Imperial officer.

Black Suited Officer was #11 and probably dropped due to some pretty persitent rumors of one coming this fall

The rumors have been pretty strong regarding Commander Praji.

And while I was hoping for Davish "Pops" Krail - Gold 5 to at least place in the poll, I think I'd like to see him packed with a new Y-Wing.  My personal hopes being that Hasbro will sell that as an exclusive, and include a voice chip that keeps saying "STAY ON TARGET!"  I think that would make for the ultimate Target exclusive.  ;)

But very surprised to see that the space/zero G Stormtrooper didn't place at all.  Perhaps folks are trooped out?  Or maybe it's just too obscure of a trooper to make people take notice.

That's what I don't want. I'm not a vehicle collector, so making new figures just for a product I won't buy (and subsequently will have to wait until they release a carded version or hope someone really wants just the vehicle and will sell the figure) doesn't do it for me. Hence, Lt. Lepira is still on my list.

Out of all the pilots we voted for a resculpt?  :P At least it's one we badly need.

evenflow turned in our list to Hasbro today...and then 4 figures got confirmed this afternoon all from ANH (you guys have no idea how much love this movie has gotten over the last 5 years)

Anywhoo...maybe a sneak peak in 2009 wishlists...here would be the hypothetical next top 10 removing Red Leader, Brainiac, Wioslea and WED Droid (R5-K2, Rebel Technician and Dice Ibegon were 15, 16 and 17)

#01 Bom Vimdin
#02 Tonnika Sisters Two Pack
#03 Dr Evazan
#04 Owen Lars
#05 Hrchek Kal Fas
#06 Ponda Baba
#07 Banniss Keeg
#08 Grand Moff Tarkin
#09 Imperial Commander (Black Tunic)
#10 Rebel Fleet Trooper

I realize we finally got a Black Tuniced officer but this sort of represented a mashup of the Jir and Praji so there you go

The Owen that is coming with the TRU set is just a repack of the icky PotF2 figure.

The Owen on the Wishlist is for a RESCULPT that is wanted by a large majority of us... 

RESULTS!!!

#06 Owen Lars (Resculpt)

Scott just got lazy and left the (resculpt) part off his updated list.
