I've got another question for you guys, now that everyone's paying attention:

Why is your site contributing a list with so many results that have already been confirmed as forthcoming by Hasbro???? And ones deemed off limits by them... I was at Comic Con when this was announced, and they very plainly made it clear that Holiday Special figures (like Ackmena, whom I would love to own, btw) are off limits for this poll...?

On your list, I note the following figures that have been confirmed ALREADY by Hasbro:
Bom Vimdin (confirmed 2011, per Hasbro qna)
Tonnikas (obviously off limits)
Han Bespin (confirmed 2010, per Hasbro qna, and also reported in fall esb wave 2010 source)
Evazan (confirmed 2010, per Hasbro qna, also Stan has confirmed casting for new mold)
Ponda Baba (confirmed 2010, per Hasbro qna, also Stan has confirmed casting for new mold)

That there alone is 5 more spots you guys could open up for new figures, when these are already confirmed as forthcoming by not just "spies", but by Hasbro themselves????

It seems like you are wasting, quite literally, 20% of your figure nomination opportunites...

I don't know why the members here aren't more concerned about this waste of opportunity. Heck, we could get 5 more figures from this little poll in there and make EVERYONE happy. There are only a handful of figures in this thread with more than 1 vote...???

And to those that are going to say "we'd like to impress upon Hasbro how much we want the Tonnika... yadda yadda"...

Do we really have waste a spot for this?
Why not just add a little intro paragraph to your poll list indicating how highly the Tonnikas scored, but that you pulled them from the list because of the rules...

Do you actually even read this thread?  "We" already explained that

Who's Stan?

"Stan" is a Hasbro employee who occassionally drops bits about what's going on in development when he sees stuff. And, as far as I recall, he's never been dead wrong. Sometimes, it takes a year or two to see stuff out he mentioned, but it usually comes. BTW, Hasbro plans and tools the whole line over a year in advance...

Anyway, NEWS FLASH:

Ripped From The Headlines (Or Whatever)
8/17/2009 3:20:34 PM | Reported by Adam_May

Culled from Hasbro's own round-up of Q&A input some new items have been spotted in the passages. A new Attack of the Clones C-3PO will part of a second Target Geonosis Arena wave next year if the first wave sells well! The TWO Force Unleashed multipacks are confirmed each with FIVE figures. There will be no direct "re-packs", just new figures, and significant repaints of some existing figures. Included will be TWO versions of Starkiller, Proxy, a variant of Juno Eclipse, and a few trooper variants.

A "super articulated" Bespin Han Solo is confirmed for 2010. Cantina alien Bom Vimdin is confirmed for 2011. Expanded Universe Anakin Solo (to go with Jacen and Jaina Solo) is also likely to come out next year or 2011. Hasbro has confirmed new versions of Ponda Baba and Dr. Evazan next year. A new Wuher is on tap for 2010 or 2011. [Editor's Note: Might these Cantina figures come with sections to make up the "distillery"?]

Who's Stan?

C'mon Rob everyone knows S.T.A.N. (Spy To Alert Nerds)

And, as far as I recall, he's never been dead wrong.

Not dead wrong, only plain wrong. How is that Big Slave One coming along?

I know that I'm having a semi-difficult time keepting track with a few people changing votes, and a broken discussion about who'll be able to vote or not.  Is someone keeping a running tally that might share it?

Well, looking back, this was the latest update:
Owen Lars
Bollux
Ackmena
Bastilla Shan
Dak Ralter

and at that time Owen had 8 votes, it looks like. Since then, there was a -1 Ackmena + 2 Ackmena + 2 Dak Ralter and, it looks like Jocasta was tied to Owen's 8 with Scott's vote and is now at 11.

Oh, what a surprise!  Another new member who wants to vote for Jocasta...  and who just happens to have the same IP address as one of the other new members who just happens to want Jocasta Nu!  Shock!   ::)

Are you sure your user ID wasn't supposed to be Arie45895 so it matches your other account?

I think I've had enough all this multiple account nonsense...

Meh... I read the rumor lists but I don't ever take them too seriously, and I don't pay enough attention to retain who the personalities are.

I think Scott's 'change of heart' was a joke.
