Any chance that we might be able to revise our TPM lists if R5-X2 winds up getting confirmed in some sort of multipack/exclusive, Scott?

What I do is if a figure is announced, the 11th figure on the list moves up a spot...there is no revoting

I get the sense that the wind may have been taken out of the sails of this year's wishlists.  Any chance that we'll be moving on from the AOTC list?

Really hoping that SDCC knocks the ball out of the park and gets us some wishlist figures this Winter/next Spring.  So tired of seeing the same figures over and over and over and over and over again on these lists (Kitster/Wald, Cliegg, Mosep, Doallyn, Slim Aloo, Toryn Farr, etc).

If SDCC once again gives us nothing new this year, there may be no point in doing the lists next year.  :(

Yeah I am really bummed about this as there were no new figures made off of the list from last year when in a typical year there are between 10-20.   It is amazing how bad the TPM 3D effort totally screwed over the line as I really think we would have gotten some cooler AOTC and ROTS figures this year

Agreed...  The figure selection has been bad.  I blame a lot of it on just these huge assed gaps.  Imagine if by now things had been flowing as normal?  Might've been some cool stuff in BAD once that initial AOTC wave passed.  Maybe not.  Either way the dry span here has pretty much killed the hobby for many.

I'm into new stuff, but I'm with Jeff and Scott...  That initial Black Series wave is pretty meh compared to what I now want.  I know there's several of those I don't blan on getting at this stage.  Not for what they want.

I'm anxious for NEW or resculpts of REALLY old stuff.  Mosep for sure.  He's my top Cantina alien...  If they did Lafoe I'd go nuts.  A new Antilles, some new Endor Rebels, the Snaggletooth from Jabba's Palace, Sgt. Doallyn...  Hell I 'd be into a resculpt of any of the 3-pack Cantina aliens except I guess Snaggletooth now.  Nabrun Leids done now though?  Bet he'd be awesome.

There where a few that got taken off the lists last year but they got taken off before the championship round.

No CW this year? Makes sense. Your going to let us vote for them in the EU poll?

I'm actually pretty happy to vote in ROTS...  I could think of quite a few resculpts I'd buy, and CLone Commanders are in my top 10.  ROTS I just dig more, as a movie, than the previous two...

I'd kinda dig a Clone Wars vote since they ARE doing realistic, and I hear things, that CW realistic isn't dead by any means to Hasbro.  :-\

That said, I see where the votes were largely ignored too...  Last couple years, Hasbro's had everything so jumbled, I think it's inevitable though and hopeful it'll be getting straightened around with new movies and things kind of now sinking into place.  Maybe a bit more stability in that regard will be a boon to the line as a whole.

So Merumeru FINALLY shows up on a figure rumor list for this year or early next year?  I've had him on my ROTS wishlist ever since the movie came out.  Still, I'm skeptical that it's actually happening.

Are we going to do any CW or EU ones?  I realize that these are usually done before SDCC and we hand the Tournament of Champions list to a Hasbro rep so it's probably pointless to do.  Still these are fun.

Swamped with life!

That's what happens when there aren't any toys to collect.  ;)  Seriously, though: hope all's well in the family, Scott.

I figure there wasn't much hurry to do these since there wasn't much coming out that knocked any one off the lists, etc.

It's when life starts trumping the toys that are there, that it sucks, haha.  :)
