Oh man...  Tarkin and the Rebel Fleet Trooper on the same list?  I think I just stiffened up a bit.

Hopefully toyfare can weed out the "Spammers" that got Jocasta Nu on so many lists, and if not, then we all need to figure out how to spam their poll ourselves and get that Rebel Fleet Trooper done for Jesse.  

And Sadly no matter what I vote for, it will get negated by some random Video Game "Darth" that I have never heard of and have Zero interest in purchasing.

No animated style figures made the cut?  :-\

Meh, so much for my interest in this poll...

I don't think that's too surprising. The line is so new (relatively) that any animated "winners" would have already had an excellent shot of being produced anyway. I think the mailaway Nahdar Vebb is probably the closest thing to "fans' choice" figure we are going to get at least a for a while.

Meh. It sure seems like 95% of these characters are ones Hasbro would have made in the next few years anyway. I was really hoping Ackmena would at least make the list. :-\

I think either Jaxxon or Tarkin will be getting my vote.

I can't believe Corde and Dorme are on the list. Are there really that many fanboys with semis for these two snoozer characters?

Not too shabby.  As a Cantina Dudes fan, I'm pretty happy to see Bom, Evazan, and Tzizvvt make the cut.  Maybe now they will get on them sooner rather than later (poor Bom has been in the 'parking lot' since 2001).

Also nice to see Jabba's Palace get some love.  A 'boring' human like Taym Dren-Garen probably didn't have much of a shot if not for a poll like this.

Jaxxon?  I'll buy him to show support for the Marvel stuff, but I'd still rather get Crimson Jack and Jolli first.  


I can't believe Corde and Dorme are on the list. Are there really that many fanboys with semis for these two snoozer characters?

Here it is - "The Legacy Collection Line Killer Wave":  Corde, Dorme, Jocasta Nu, Queen Apailana, Queen Jamillia, and Tey How.  Buy them all and assemble the hot-pink & gold BettyBot BAD figure.   :P

I don't think that's too surprising. The line is so new (relatively) that any animated "winners" would have already had an excellent shot of being produced anyway.

I agree with what Jayson said.  For proof, check out the JD Clone Wars Wishlist we ran back in April.  It's only been 6 months since the poll ended and already Hasbro has confirmed figures for five of our top ten, with 2 more strongly rumored (Aurra, Cold Obi-Wan).  Give it a few years and then you'll see people wanting things from Season 1/2 that never got made, etc.


I was really hoping Ackmena would at least make the list. :-\

She had the whole "Hasbro already said no" thing going against her I think.  Same for the Tonnikas.  So many sites told folks "don't waste a vote" that I don't think the poll truly captured the demand for either of them.

Agreed but you forgot two more: Who the hell wants the two useless Naboo Queens as well?

Overall, I am very disappointed in the final list, too many WTFs.  I am not getting the whole Jaxxon or Jocasta appeal but at least they are obscure and fit the template for the Fan's Choice. (RS has a hard on for Jaxxon, seems like they want to 1 up JD on the ICMG therefore I will be against Jaxxon by default.). This list should be for the ultimate obscure characters like ICMG, Ackmena and while I am not a fan Jaxxon. Having characters like Tarkin and Evezan take away the prestige of the poll as they will most likely get their resculpts in the very near term.

Out of the list Dash is getting my vote, too many on the list are shoe ins so several seem to be a waste of vote. With Comic Packs going to the wayside a lot of characters from EU will be harder to get.

Figures I do want (In order of what I would want first)
Dash Rendar
Guri (SOTE: Evolutions)
Dr. Evazan (He is on the short list already, so it's a waste of a vote)
Grand Moff Tarkin (He is on the short list already, so it's a waste of a vote)
Balista Shan
Bom Vimdin (He is on the short list already, so it's a waste of a vote)
Weequay Skiff Master
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Sgt. Doallyn
Toryn Farr
Taym Dren-Garen
Sim Aloo
Bariss Offee
Darth Sidious (Senate Duel) (He is on the short list already, so it's a waste of a vote)

Figures I can live without but would most likely buy if Hasbro wasted the plastic on them:
Admiral Pellaeon
Cane Adiss
Clegg Lars
Darth Caedus
Darth Plagueis
Dormé
Jocasta Nu
Joruus C'Baoth
Kister and Wald (2-Pack)
Tzizvvt

Figures I refuse to by from the list because they are so damn stupid:
Ben Quadrinaros
Cordé
Jaxxon
Queen Apailana
Queen Jamillia
Tey How

I loathe EU stuff generally speaking, but whatever jackass thought up that stupid Rabbit-Man should be tarred and feathered and banned from ever having anything to do with Star Wars ever again. That is the most inane, ridiculous thing I have ever seen.  >:(

Okay, here's my wants from the list:
Admiral Pellaeon (Thrawn Trilogy) X2-3 (extras for customs)
Bariss Offee (Attack of the Clones) X2
Bastila Shan (KOTOR) X2
Ben Quadrinaros (The Phantom Menace)
Bom Vimdin (A New Hope Cantina) X2 (extra for custom)
Cane Adiss (Return of the Jedi Jabba's Palace)
Cliegg Lars (Attack of the Clones)
Corde (Attack of the Clones)
Darth Caedeus (Legacy)
Darth Plagueis (Revenge of the Sith)
Darth Sidious Senate Duel (Revenge of the Sith)
Dash Rendar (Shadows of the Empire) (hmm, not sure if I'll get this one, it's at the bottom of this list for me)
Dorme (Attack of the Clones)
Dr. Evazan (A New Hope Cantina)
Grand Moff Tarkin (A New Hope)
Guri (Shadows of the Empire) YES!!!!
Jaxxon (Marvel Comics) If he's the realistic version, then yes, not the cartoony version.
Jocasta Nu (Attack of the Clones)
Joruus C'Baoth (Thrawn Trilogy) meh, this might be a pass for me also
Kister and Wald (The Phantom Menace)
Queen Apailana (Revenge of the Sith)
Queen Jamillia (Attack of the Clones)
Rebel Fleet Trooper (A New Hope) X5-6 SWEET!
Sgt. Doallyn (Return of the Jedi Skiff Guard)
Sim Aloo (Return of the Jedi Imperial Dignatary)
Taym Dren-Garen (Return of the Jedi Skiff Guard)
Tey How (The Phantom Menace)
Toryn Farr (The Empire Strikes Back) Oh HELL Yes!
Tzizvvt (A New Hope Cantina) (Didn't we already get this figure a couple of years ago? Prolly a pass for me)
Weequay Skiff Master (Return of the Jedi Skiff Guard) Definite need of an upgrade.

So in short, I'd buy at least one of each, with possible exception to Dash Rendar and Joruus C'Baoth.

I'm pretty happy with those choice. Though I agree that many (at least half) of these will see the light of day within 2-3 years anyway.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

I'm disappointed Zam Wesell isn't on the list, cuz I really like her character ...   :'( I was shocked to see Jocasta Nu wasn't here, she got so much attention for a while and it looked like she would make it onto the list. Glad Caedus and Plaguis are here, we need new SITH! And I refuse to buy Joruus C'Baoth ... I really don't like this dude. >:D
