Of course fans don't get actual say into which characters they vote for, as there's unmade characters out there from media they'd want to see more than four fanfic creations  :-X.

Wonder if this one is rigged like the Star Wars polls?

That 4th guy looks like a classic Fuzzhead Joe.  I'd want that.

Technically all Joes are "fan fic" from Hasbro. ;)

Fuzzhead is probably least likely to win, because he's adventure team and fanboys like their butt-kicking fantasy women.

I'd still rather see those ninjas and zombies they had concept mock-ups of...some of the ninjas even appeared in the micro line.

I missed those mock ups.

I was thinking same thing that one of those females will get done for similar reason.   :-X

I will vote Fuzzhead Joe all the way!

I have not read any of the fan fic. 

I will throw away my vote and vote for the fuzz head guy. 

But I couldn't agree more... Fan-wanks and their ninja-sniper-renegade-computer wiz-latex body suit and bullet proof bra wearing female figure will get the old ballot stuffing going. 

I really think if they would relaunch the Adventure Team concept, they would have a much better chance at making the line good again, and it would make for a better chance at the movie being watchable. But that is a different thread.
