So is there going to be time for an EU poll?  Comic Con seems to be fast approaching!

I love Scott's wishlists we vote for every year, but every year I'm always a little bummed at how spread out the EU stuff is.  And it seems to go that way even more as we get more and more EU figures into the modern line...  It's definitely the most wide-open category for sure.

KOTOR seems to be the only constant...  Maybe Dash Rendar too (which I really am not wild about...  A Han Solo rip-off, blah...  unless they made him mildly normal looking).

To all JD memebers, for your future EU wishlist consideration:

I want a Redd Sandford Jedi as seen in this Donnie & Marie 70's SW skit. Plus the Female Troopers are sweet!!!
That's some sweet 70's Star Wars action right up there with the likes of the Holiday special! (But I must admit Marie would have been a hotter Leia than Carrie!)

Thanks for the breakdown Scott (and for coordinating it, of course).

I think the results reflect JD's older crowd (I was going to say more mature, what was I thinking?) that has a greater appreciation for our childhood movies and the figures related to them.   There's certainly a lot of figures on that list that I would buy!

Thanks for delivering the results, Dan, you'll have to let us all know what kind of feedback Derryl gives you at SDCC.

It's a good original trilogy list mostly, and really a good list overall.  Hasbro's said specifically in the past that the lists have been used/gone over too, so it's nice knowing that the voices are being heard.  It definitely gives them a good idea of figures they should look at closely in the near future I think.

Thanks to Scott for once again handling all this.  It's a bit of work for him for sure.

I like that it's a voice too, for a crowd that have been into the hobby since Day 1, as well.

Awesome results. I picked mostly OT, so I'm well represented with 12 out of 15.

Thanks for doing this, Scott! I wonder how this list would compare with the top vote-getters of each group?

Big thanks for continuing to do this Scott, and doing a great job.  I'm pretty happy with the list as well, and I'm glad to see the OT heavy listings overall.  There are still some nice prequel figures left to do (or re-do), but at this point it is really starting to get where we fill out the remaining Cantina/Jabba's Palace figures, some of the still un-made vintage figures, and re-dos of things we haven't seen in recent years.  Happy with the placing of an all-new Bespin Han Solo, which is my top figure want at this point.

I'm very happy with the OT representation in the final list, particularly the Hoth rebels and Cantina characters.  Surprised with Bom Vimdin as the number one pick, though.  I'd have thought a less obscure cantina character or Jabba's denizen to be #1.

One thing I was glad did NOT make the list, was the Tonnika Sisters.  They're kinda becoming the "playsets" of the action figure world to me.  Hasbro's said no, so move on, ya know?   :-\  There's about a billion other items from ANH I'd rather slip into the list than those two at this point.  Even if they weren't off the table completely, I guess I just never found them that interesting.  I'd rather every goon Jabba has with him at the Falcon than the sisters at this point.
