After revisiting some databank of otc and saga, I realized we had an early version of the snowtrooper commander, but he wasn´t depicted in a natural position, more intended to look as a gunner.

Thinking about this update, I wonder if a recipe could contain:

-tvc at at commander chest armor
-tlc at at driver boots and gloves
-a larger skirt soft goods preferably
-head under helmet: something like Cody, Bly, etc
helmet mask: with the top part a bit highlighted as a different layer.
The holster on right side of belt

The figure needs to be taller than saga legends tvc snowtrooper, requires
more poseability, he has to acquire a nice neutral "ready" stance.

Tournie is going to be rough this year.  A couple movies/categories don't have my attention much at all thsi time around, which one would think would help I guess, but it just seems like selections are getting tougher now that a lot of my greatest wishes have been fulfilled in the line.

Resculpts ahoy though!

BTW,

That's an EU list I could go nuts for, that won the EU category...

Noghri Warrior, Dash resculpt, Pelleon, Jan Ors, Leebo, T3 from KOTOR...  Nice.

WOW!  Scratch a total of FIVE characters from the TPM poll after that presentation:

-Amidala (post senate) - ON THE WAY
-R5-A7 (G8-R3) - ON THE WAY (WalMart exclusive)
-Naboo Pilot - ON THE WAY (WalMart exclusive)
-Ben Quadinaros - ON THE WAY (WalMart exclusive)
-Mawhonic - ON THE WAY (WalMart exclusive)

"You were entrusted to lead the Republic." - Vote for Ven Zallow from THE OLD REPUBLIC in figure polls!

No doubt on that one - I was scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to fill out my list, with those five lopped off, it'll be even harder next year to come up with ten figures I want from Ep1.  :-\

Yeah, that's cool that 5 have been knocked off the list. Some of the main and secondary characters need updated, though. I wonder if Scott will move up the next 5 'finalists' on the list to choose from for the Tournament?

Resculpts are even going to make it harder too...  Ric Olie, etc.  Those were the guys I was voting for, generally.

I'll be honest, I didn't have an easy time picking figures for the tournie this year, not so much because I was giddy at the choices, but more because I thought a lot are boring or kind of inevitable because Hasbro's at the bottom of the barrel.

I leaned to EU, and some Cantina aliens, some officers from the background...  That kind of stuff I think.  CW was tickling my fancy a little, but I wound up axing them all off for movie characters.

I was surprised I picked anything from ROTS, actually.

ESB is losing ground with me...  I think Wedge will get his SS figure so I wound up skipping him despite wanting him pretty badly.

I'd like to see some of the Rebel Commando variants make the list, but none did so I think this maybe was the first year, ever, without a Rebel Trooper for me to vote for...  Good, but bad too.  Torryn Far counts I guess, but the Hoth Technicians didn't make it either, and that disappointed me.  They were everywhere, seen "wrangling" Taun-Tauns and stuff, and for them to not make the cut really sucks.  :-\

I just can't get giddy for senators, Padmes (dead or alive), and even Leia's don't get my goat.  I'm actually content enough with VOTC Lando I couldn't vote for him, though I'd buy a new one sure.  It's the stuff like Cantina Wolf guy or Mosep, or EU characters like Jan Ors and Noghri Warrior that make me wish Hasbro would crank them out since they seem less likely I guess.

I think I'm on Rebel Trooper withdrawals now, not having any to vote for.  That...  that was odd.

I love Ewoks, so I was going to vote for Lumat, but he is already confirmed for release next year.

hmmm I don't remember this confirmation - not that I am doubting you.  I went over the first page and it seems several of us have a vote for him.  Mods, should we all adjust our votes on this one?

If Lumat wasnt already confirmed, I'd vote for him, or any other ewok for that matter.  Hasbro confirmed him in the Q&A that was sent out during SDCC - expect a 2012 release.

They said...

"By the end of 2012 some of these gaps will be filled, with, for instance, figures like Lumat."

If that is enough for you to change your vote, go ahead.  If you want to leave it to support a Lumat/Wompus 2-pack or just the Wompus half of the tag, then leave it as is.  Doesn't matter...

Good point - without it, especially how it is set up as a combo here - if we removed it there would be no Ewoks on the list.  I am not going to not support Ewoks in any fashion.  I am leaving my vote as it stands.

Just for the record, I might be one of the strongest supporters of Ewoks in the known universe, lol - so I want to see them all made - look at my avatar!  ;)  I was just trying to be helpful in pointing out that Lumat has been confirmed, not to mention, Hasbro wont even allow us to create our own 2-pack scenerios in these contests - they mentioned that in 2009.  I was trying to ensure that if we vote Lumat/Wompus into the top ten, Hasbro wont simply remove it after receiving it...
