I'm also glad the Tonnikas were not up there.  Not to say I don't want them made (in fact, I want them made badly), but because of the other reason you mentioned:  Hasbro has said no.  Why waste a spot or two on the lists if they refuse to make them, for whatever reason?

Thanks for doing this, Scott!

Absolutely. I used to gloss over these threads, but now I appreciate the love and attention put into them.

Here is another cool nugget...the 2005 Wishlist results

Green were the winners
Red are done figures

There is lots and lots of red done in only 4 years.

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.

So are you going to re-poll for the new Hasbro Fan's Choice poll, or just use the existing results?

We are going over the results and talking things over now... really, the wishlists is such a comprehensive poll that we're leaning towards using the existing '09 Wishlist Results instead of re-inventing the wheel and whipping something up in just 3 weeks.

    You know, after looking at the top 30, the only figure I really wish was on there was a new Royal Guard with an Shadow Guard styled cape.

    Wow, really?  I thought the list was comprised of TONS of great figures.  Some that need resculpts, some new, etc.  The Royal Guard was probably lower on my want list since I was ok with the ROTS figure.  :-\

    I was ok with the ROTS version as well, and thought it was pretty well done.  I would like to see it re-released at some point though.  I'm sure it doesn't really fit Hasbro's criteria for the Saga Legends line, but maybe stick it in as a repack in one of the ROTJ waves over the next couple years.

    My only complaint on the ROTS version is the Red is too bright, a little darker of a Red would be nicer if they refresh that figure. My only disappointment is no Ackmena on the list unless I missed something.

    No doubts that every figure on the new list is great. Much better than scums which is half EU. If I had the responsibility of trading one out for a new Royal Guard, my head would explode.
