Defender Wishlists 2009: The Empire Strikes Back
« on: June 9, 2009, 01:08 PM »


For the last couple of years we ran an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current Star Wars Films.  Continuing the tradition and trying to finish up before Comic Con 2009, I thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You send your Wish List for 10[/i] 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After four weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  Fan favorite The Empire Strikes Back is currently on deck.   If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Episode V.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

2008 Results...4 out of 10

Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back




#01 Bespin Guard (Resculpt)
#02 Torryn Farr
#03 Han Solo (Bespin Resculpt)
#04 Princess Leia (Medical Frigate)

#07 Zuckuss (Resculpt)
#08 Hoth Rebel Soldier (Echo Base)
