This was harder to choose 25 than I thought.  So many of these figures should have been done already (looking at all the main characters from the Sequel trilogies/Disney shows) and it came down to "need to happen" and "want to happen".   Can't assume that Hasbro is going to be making some of these figures anytime soon (or at all).

I know - I keep looking at the list, trying to pick and then leaving it for another day.  I'm getting closer though - my list is down to 37.

I was in the same boat.  I kept going back and forth about who I wanted on the list and who to leave off.  Finally, I just put a list I would be happy with and left it at that.

Looks like ANH Princess Leia, Chopper, and Rex have been pipelined, so if you have them on your list, feel free to adjust them.

Also, now that Ezra's unlocked, so he also be removed from the list?

So are we starting up a "Defender Wishlists 2023: The Original Trilogy" in September to keep things rolling each month or are we taking some time off before we go again?

I am up for whatever people want.  In the past year, we've gotten 10 out of 140 figures.  Would definitely love to get more participation so that we can get a top 20 without having to use a randomizer to fill out the last few spots.

I vote we start anew for 2023-24! 

Crazy Idea - what if we changed up the categories and did our own "Eras Tour" #TaylorSwift

  Top 20 - Fall of the Jedi (TPM, AOTC, ROTS)
  Top 20 - Reign of the Empire (Solo, OWK, Andor, Rogue One)
  Top 20 - Age of Rebellion (ANH, ESB, ROTJ)
  Top 20 - The New Republic (TM, BOBF, Ahsoka)
  Top 20 - Rise of the First Order (TFA, TLJ, TROS)
  Top 20 - Animation (Droids, Ewoks, Clone Wars, Rebels, Bad Batch, Tales of the Jedi, etc)
  Top 20 - EU (Everything else - books, comics, video games, Kenner, etc)

And then the rest -
  Top 10 - Troop 4-Pack
  Top 10 - Beasts/Big Aliens
  Top 10 - Vehicles
  Top 10 - Playsets
  Top 25 - Tournament of Champions

Just trying to think up a way to break up the D+ category - having 3 season of TM plus BOBF, Andor, OWK, and Ahsoka all in one category is too hard to limit to 20!  Of course, shifting OWK and Andor into a group with Solo/Rogue one makes those choices harder too.

Totally open to just doing the same thing as last year too if that is what everyone wants.  Just trying to maybe change it up a bit to add some freshness and not just cut-and-paste last year's lists.

Actually, I like that idea, especially since I felt the Anthology category drew from two sources where Live Action had too many sources to pull from.

I think itís an interesting idea, too. 

Can we include a link to the previous yearís poll in each new poll?

Enlighten me on how to do the "nice, clean" link instead of copying and pasting the full link.

Thanks for hooking me up, Jeff.  Appreciate it!

I'll just study your link and make the necessary changes for the subsequent rounds.

Posted the Reign of the Empire wishlist.  I'll close the Fall of the Jedi wishlist on the 10th since I didn't start it at the top of the month.
