I still don't understand how some deformed thug who picks fights in a bar is a doctor...even a mad scientist.

I guess he lost his license being drunk in the afternoon and hanging out with criminals, picking fights with the locals.

At least he's not a snot vampire...

Yeah, as much as I call him Dr Evazan, and I've read the story, I like to just think of him as some minor criminal who picks fights. In fact, I've always thought he was outright lying when he said he had the death sentence on twelve systems. He seems like that kind of guy. I think the real badasses would keep that **** quiet.

In bar where every third person is a bounty hunter, yeah, keeping quiet might be wise.

Interesting voting on the ROTJ list, all 7 of the carry overs look like shoe ins to make the top 10 again.  But looking at last year's list again, #11 and #12 were ERG and Lando Skiff, #14 was Widdle/Oochee.  So really the top 10 is going to look familiar and also have some pretty new deep choices.  Let's just say that SailBarge/Skiff Guards are dominating right now

Also note, this is our 9th year, Mawhonic, Lumat and Jocasta were on every list until now, there are other figures that also hold that distinction, they are:

Tey How
Kitster/Wald
Cliegg Lars
Padme (ROTS Buns)
Toryn Farr
Sgt Doallyn
Sim Aloo

Scockery posted the WEG Imp. Army Trooper in his EU list...  I like the cut of your jib on that one!



It's funny that he is sorta different in the pic though, from the WEG description of him which says they're, more or less, AT-ST DRivers with body armor, helmets, and such.

Their pic shows them to have more like an officer's tunic on, but I attribute that to being an officer instead.  Like a Platoon leader.

that's the only reason I don't put him on my wishlist.  I kind of consider the AT-ST Drivers to fill this void, and I have extra body armor...  I think the AT-ST Driver with an AT-AT Commander Body Armor, and a Sandtrooper Backpack, is the ideal Impy Army trooper though.  :)  Love their idea though, and would love to have a hundred of these guys with a squad of Stormtroopers leading the way ahead of them.

I almost put the Aqua Stormtrooper, but the pictures of those are like Scout Trooper with fins and a scuba tank, not a great design IMHO. And Marvel's weird early aquatrooper take was a stormtrooper with kenner snowtrooper pants.

I don't know if either would ever have a chance of getting made, but then they invented that air stormtrooper for the Star Tours.

I thought the air stormtrooper was the one fro TFU?  I could be wrong though.

I'd like the Aqua trooper but only because it's pretty in line with the Aquatic Clones in the Tartakovsky Clone Wars series, which we got a figure of already...  I've actually considered just frankensteining one from various troops actually.  I'm ok with that look though the Scout Visor is kind of odd on any trooper really.  I'd love some kind of aquatic OT era Stormtrooper though...

For that matter, I'd dig an aquatic Rebel but that seems like it'd be a guy in a jumpsuit with a scuba mask, haha.

I dunno if I'd shell out $10 for Cliegg Lars. Maybe if I decided to to a dio of him being beaten by Tusken Raiders.  >:D
