I voted for Toryn Farr.  I don't really want to wait until 2016 or whatever, so let's see some support people!

This was a little tricky -- do I choose my definite #1 wanted figure, or do I select a figure that is more obscure and less likely to get made without a poll like this?  It was between Nikto (my #1) or Joruus C'baoth (from the amazing Thrawn Trilogy)...

My desire for the vintage Nikto won in the end.

I'm really hopeful the Noghri is "on tap" and that's why he failed to make the cut.  I've wanted a Noghri since 1993, and Hasbro showing a prototype really got me geeked.  I want to see that make it to retail in one capacity or another.

The only on that list I don't care if I ever get are Jocasta Nu and Princess Kneesa, Nute Gunray (though he'd be ok, but just not big on my list), and Mara Jade (I'm happy with what I have of her).  Maybe Guri too...  Female EU characters are just meh, fanboy fantasy stuff sometimes to me.

I'm a big Tzivizizizizizizit guy, Mosep, torryn Far, and others.  Tzz and Mosep are my top 2 though I think.

There are several on here that I don't care if they ever get made or not.  In the end I voted for the grey Death Squad Commander.  Some I just assume they will be made some day.  Some I just don't care if they do get made.  I'm not to sure the DS Cmdr will ever get made.  I can't customize worth a crap and hopefully they would make a new sculpt for him.  I am hoping if he were to be made that he would wind up on a vintage cardback.  I do go for the cardbacks so that was factored into the final vote.  I don't know if whatever figure wins what card it would end up on?  I almost went for Lars, Farr, or Cliegg Lars though.

Despite the fact that I really, really, really want a new Yakface and a Palpatine with throne, I cast my vote for the unlikely Mosep. I figure he needed the help.

I think this also pretty much confirms that Ree Yees is coming next year and not Yakface per the HH Q&A from last year

I voted for Doallyn

I'm thinking Yakface will show up without any help from voters sooner or later. i voted for Tzzzvzzt, just cuz I think he's kooky and seems like one of the less likely Cantina dudes to come out.

I was scratching my head with this vote.  In the end I decided to vote on the most obscure character on the list that probably will never get made without a fan's choice pull to put him through.  I voted Jaxxon - and admittedly I don't even know much about the character.

I just figured pretty much most others on that list have a decent shot at being made without having to win the poll to make it happen.

I have NOT voted yet but I'm leaning towards Mosep or Tizz...  Though Scott has me thinking Doallyn too.  They're probably my most interested 3 right now.

If they held a vote for which character should NEVER be made, I'd go to every computer in my office to cast a vote for Tzivvzt.

As it is, I voted for Jaxxon.

On the topic of who made the list and who seems to have been cut.  When it comes to the Gella sisters, I'm wondering if Hasbro dropped them not so much because they're already on the way (but we do know they're on Hasbro's radar) but because they know we really want both and they don't want to do a 2-pack.  Also, it was mentioned that the order from the Lichtgeschwindigkeit website may have been publicized differently than was submitted making the points harder to tally.

I do think the Noghri got dropped because he's already in the works.  It doesn't make much sense otherwise.

But unless another couple sites submitted lists that we don't know about, I have no idea how Pellaeon made it into the top 20.  At least Cane Adiss didn't make the list, and by my count he finished ahead of Pellaeon.  Adiss would also make my Never to be Made list given the opportunity.

I don't think I'd ever dump on a figure that got made really...  Tzzvizit is really one that I'd actually like to have, but I'd take every character from the Cantina if they offered them.  Every human, every weirdo, every alien, and every piece of the Cantina itself.  I just would be really happy to get any of it.

To me, Tzzvizitizazizirzizit is so weird, he's actually one of the better Cantina choices.  They've gotten to a lot of the more strange and "in demand" aliens like Arcona, Duros, etc.  Mosep's also high on my list though too.  Beyond that I'm more into humans, which I doubt many want, but there's some there I'd like like to see like Danz Borin, Yerka Mig, and my favorite, Garrouf Lafoe...  Love the Cantina Snitch.

Plus, Cantina/JP are proven track records where Hasbro has said they aren't "kid-oriented" at all, get the shorter production run, etc.  They seem like the ideal for the polling like this ultimately.

For me, it's like Jocasta Nu...  If they make her, I'll buy her, but I have absolutely no interest in her ever being made and I'll be quite happy with the line if she doesn't get a figure.  But, I won't campaign against her either ultimately.  I just think she's a waste of space, even with lines in the movie.  There's a few like that to me...  Ultimately, I'd probably put Frozec in there too (Sorry Scott)...  Then again I'd buy Jaxxon too, even though I have no clue about him in the EU, and the design is quite silly.  I'd still buy it if they made it, but I'll not really put my weight behind getting it made though, haha.  ;D 

I figure if enough people want something to get it (legitimately) through a poll though, that's cool.  I've always got the chance to just pass on whatever it is too, if it's too crummy.  Plus let's face it, a lot of the figures will probably get done off the list. :)
