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.

Check again, she's there.

I wouldn't have been, only because I know who I contacted were quick to act as we were, when we saw voting fraud running rampant.  I don't think Scum, ironically where it seemed to start, did anything...  She made their final list they sent in IIRC...

I'll obviously vote Fleet Trooper first, Tarkin second, and Endor Rebels third (which I think are a given, but I'd vote them in anyway).  Tarkin resculpts aren't widely talked about so I think he's a great choice...  I don't know that ALL of those figures are locks, honestly, but that JD got 14 of them says a lot about our community I think.  

I'd buy any figure on the list, but those are probably my top 3.  Lots of oddness abounding in that list though...  I think some of them aren't necessarilly a lock these days, to happen in the next couple years, especially when there's implications that Legacy will be scaled back.

Even though the links to the poll aren't working on WizardUniverse.com, I managed to scrub the source code and found a working link. Vote now and make it count!

I'm going with Tarkin and hoping for a COMPLETELY NEW sculpt with a decent likeness. But I was very tempted to vote for Jaxxon, and I think it would be very cool to see him win.

I still don't know who the vote for.  I would think Hasbro would just make several of these on their own like Tarkin, Evazan, Vimdin, Rebel Fleet Trooper, Sidious Duel, etc.  So, I may go for Cliegg Lars or Sim Aloo.  I'm going to be like Brett Farve and go back and forth on my vote for awhile.   ;D

Aside from the EU, I want them all.

And I even want a few of the EU ones.

Damn, there are a lot of figures that I want on that list!

Admiral Pellaeon
Bom Vimdin
Dr. Evazan
Grand Moff Tarkin
Jaxxon
Joruus C'Baoth
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Sgt. Doallyn
Sim Aloo
Toryn Farr
Tzizvvt
Weequay Skiff Master

This was not an easy decision, but I picked Bom Vimdin.  The Cantina is still my favourite SW scene, so I always enjoy populating it.  And even though he's "shortlisted", I think he needs a little push to get Hasbro's attention.

Far too many resculpt candidates on this list for my tastes, even if it's only 5 of them.  I would've preferred to have seen all new characters on the list.

I'm far from decided about who I'll vote for.  But I did notice one glaring absence from the list.  That being Cin Drallig.  I thought he had scored well enough on most of the polls to make it to the finals.  Perhaps Hasbro scratched him because he's already on the way?  Hmmmm.

I noticed that too ... either way, Hasbro's said that they want to make Cin anyways. If Hasbro expresses interest in a specific character, they usually make them .... so chances are maybe we'll see Cin in 2011? 2012?  ;)

Great list, certainly compared to last year...voted for Tizzvvt. Seems more of an outside chance coz Bom and the Good Doc WILL get made.

Plenty on that list i want, including quite a few "AreyouMad" choices like Tey How,Ben Qaud and Jaxon.

Looking forward to the outcome but it's good to make Hasbro aware of how any of these would be bought by the fan community at large. I bet the majority of these will see plastic within a couple of years.

In the end I voted on Cliegg.  I kind of doubt they are going to get to him...ever.  I think it might be an interesting figure if they give him removeable legs, hover chair, and maybe a clear post for the chair to "hover". But there are plenty on that list I want.

I voted for Cliegg Lars, just because I don't see much chance of him being made otherwise, especially with Owen and Beru being released earlier this year.
