I want Tarkin or Jaxxon to win, but I think it'll probably be a Sith Lord I don't care about. :P

Fleet Trooper or Tarkin were my top two... :)  That RFT could be fantastic with the way modern figures are done these days.

Not a surprise that a KOTOR character would win seeing how well the KOTOR stuff did in the last poll.  She did win the coveted #30 slot here when we did our poll, so I know there will be a few folks around here happy with that result.

Congrats to the Bastila Shan fans!

Wow! All EU figures in the top spots, for the most part.

OK...this is the reason you don't let ToyFare run these polls.  Do you honestly think that four of the most popular unmade characters are EU?  Seriously?  Our polling here indicates something completely different.  ToyFare definitely caters to a comic book/video game crowd and that is surely reflected in the results.  Throw in vote fixing for Jocasta Nu and voila...CRAP!

Add the fact that Hasbro says EU sales are crap...ugh ::) ::) ::)

Maybe not all four, but I do get Bastilla winning.  She was #5 in the previous 2006 Toy Fare poll and one of the very few from the last poll that haven't been made.  Makes sense that she tops this list.

The Darth Caedus/Plagius/Jaxxon thing though?  I'm seeing your point there.

I get Bastilla too...  KOTOR figures are popular...  It's not even a current game, but it's still a popular one, even among the core collectors I think, and so yeah...

The rest I totally agree with you on though Scott, and I'm also not a huge fan of Toy Fare running the vote...

That said, a lot of the figures from the top list get made anyway, so yay for that.  Your lists have always done well too.  So I'm hopeful that trend continues.

But yeah, besides Bastilla, not much there interests me at all.  I may actually pass on some.  I'll probably buy Jocasta because she's in the movie, but come time I may pass if she's got some flaw like an odd skin tone or something.  I could easily see something I otherwise wouldn't normally let bother me, actually push me to avoid the figure. :)  Being a movie figure helps her though.

Still, you know there was once again ballot stuffing going on with her too, but I also think Hasbro's insistance she not be made probably conned some people into voting for her...  which I wouldn't trust much Hasbro says on stuff like that anymore.

I can understand Bastilla, even if she wouldn't have been a pick for me, and I definitely understand Plagueis, but the other three I don't get at all.

Woot! I voted for Bastila Shan. I'm very happy she was voted on the most. Now hopefully that will mean Hasbro will actually make her (and correctly). I sure as heck don't want some kit-bashed POS for this chracter. She deserves a completely new design. So say the fans.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.
