I'm hoping the AOTC Panaka maybe leads to at least new Royal Security figures...  But really they, the Royal Guard, and the Soldiers all need resculpted badly.  I'd say they need a new pilot body with a cloth trench coat too.  AOTC meant TPM army builders are hurtin'.

Not bad results. I'm glad the PK Droid is on the list. :)

I do wish the Twi'lek twins had placed higher though.

Wow.  5 out of my 10 made the list.  Pretty cool.  Although some of my new contenders didn't fare that well.

I believe Hasbro implied in one of their QnA's that R5-X2 will be available as a buildable droid in the upcoming ROTS wave.


Edit: My BAD, it's R5-H6 we're getting not R5-X2

Thanks again for continuing these Scott.  Looking at the AOTC results, it really looks like - aside from a bundle of Padme figures - that movie is getting pretty well covered at this point.  With (finally) an "ultimate" Obi-Wan on the way this year, as well as 2/3 of the Lars trio, we're getting closer all the time.  I still have hope for an all-new Zam - and of course the various Padmes - but its getting a little more difficult to find figures from this movie now.

WHOA.  8 out of 10 AOTC finalists are female?  I know these are the votes of the JD forum community, and that the results will get presented to Hasbro at San Diego Comic Con.  But one thing we've seen over time is that female characters don't sell as well as male characters.  Obviously we've got to respect the voting process, but I don't know how well this particular episode's results will be received.

No worries Nick.  Hasbro has 9 years left on their contract, so that's only one release per year.  I'm patient.  ;)

Well, they could make a Jedi female (like Sarissa Jeng (sp?)) and I'm sure those would sell decently. And maybe they could make another Padme Evolutions pack? I think those sold well, too.

Padme sets were some of the worse ones in my neck of the woods...  I truly don't get the fascination with getting Padme in every outfit.  Not something I'd care to see actually.  I dig her Outlander Peasant disguise figure to go with a NEW Outlander Anakin...  Zam Wessel is important enough to warrant a resculpt I think considering the action sequence she was in.  Female Jedi like Barriss tend to get a pass too...  More action oriented.

Jocasta Nu though?  And again all those Padme's...  Just not my cup of tea.  There's a mountain of resculpts I'd want first.  What about Captain Typho?  He'd trump all those to me...  I think I'd nominate training Clone resculpt even though it's not that old, above most of those figures.  I know I'd dig a Pablo Jill resculpt too, for more articulation and softgoods.  Put me down for a new SA Nikto Jedi too I think.

I disagree, Jesse. I love the Padmes and really want the Picnic outfit. She's a main character (though downplayed in Sith). I think some of the gowns that were designed for Padme are some of the best... elegant. I guess that's why I want them. But yes, Padme's are not action figures and boys would not want to play with them. There are a lot of Clones figures that need redone, and I agree with you there. Articulation was bare minimum when they were released. Zam is a good one along with Outlander Anakin. I'd love to see those redone. I'm sure they'll get done at some point though, so I'm patient.

What about Captain Typho?  He'd trump all those to me... 

Captain Typho is coming in the AOTC wave that's coming later this year.



I believe that it's the next wave after the ESB wave that is just starting to hit now.

Unless you mean him in a different outfit. I wouldn't mind new versions of him and Padme in the pilot outfits from the beginning of the movie.
