Just looked over my 2013 list for TESB.  It looks like I finally have some open slots for some new characters!

Picking 4 new characters for my TESB list was a little more challenging than I thought it would be.  Whether or not Hasbro gets to any of my new TESB choices is another thing entirely.  But with only ONE character coming off of my ROTJ list?  That's another story.

So are we going to be doing a 6" figure poll at some point, too?

Are the lists being turned in at Toy fair or SDCC?

Nobody is going to ToyFair from here so it will be at a later date :)

That's right.  Not much to be expected at TF, is there.

So how is the EU poll going to be handled this year?

All in one like last year?
Separate polls for EU, CW, and Rebels?
One for Legends EU and one for Canon EU (CW/Rebels/New Comics & Books)?
Or just a poll for Canon EU?

Non-canon EU has less chance than a womp rat in the sights of Luke's T-16.

I think Scott had mentioned earlier in the thread about doing a separate wishlist for Rebels and then one poll for the rest of the EU (everything else).

It'll be up to everyone's personal tastes I guess if they want to vote for the "new" Dis-nE-U characters or the old Star Wars Legends EU characters.

Non-canon EU has less chance than a womp rat in the sights of Luke's T-16.

Sure seems that way.  On one hand, that bums me out... but on the other hand, with the line on life support, tossing figures like Guri, Lumpy, and Ackmena into the line probably isn't the best idea anyway. :(

Yeah, there's a boatload of EU I want...  Noghri, Jan Orrs, Dark Jedi Jerec (and others), a Maarek Steele and Keyan Farlander set...  I'm all about stuff like that, but the line's just not suited for that stuff now.

'07-'10 were damn good years though.  Man, think about the goofy **** we got throughout that time?  '07 alone was a juggernaught.

A Rebels list would be relevant.  As would characters from The Old Republic, and maybe from the Clone Wars animated series.  But beyond those EU properties, or anything that pops up in the new Marvel Star Wars comics?  I fear that an EU poll might be an exercise in spinning our wheels.

So, is this list (though I don't believe we've done the ToC and a few other wishlists) being turned in at SDCC or is it on the backburner due to the 6" Fan Choice poll?

If anything, it's on the back-burner thanks to the utter lack of any new 3.75" figure announcements since October 2014.

Kind of pointless turning in a list of collector demanded 3.75" figures if we don't even know what scope the 3.75" collector figure line will have going forward.  :-\

Yeah I think Defender Wishlists will pick up as the line picks up with new movies (hopefully), and there's good traction for sending in wishlists again.

New movies will mean whole new pools of characters too...  It'll certainly help and the old films will still have their lists.  I just hope Hasbro's as diligent about cranking them out as they generally were in the past.  The Wishlists always generated decent turnouts to plastic it seemed.
