Title: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Scott on August 13, 2009, 10:51 PM
Toyfare has their own official voting page now up...

http://inscnet.com/toyfare_0809/

Remember that you can vote for anyone there...you can list who you voted for here...I myself went with Bom Vimdin

Use the other thread to say who you want the 30th spot to be in the JD poll (where Bom Vimdin already won the top spot)...vote Bom Vimdin...that's right Bom Vimdin

I had a tough time narrowing it down to one figure, especially whether I should choose a background figure (like Bom Vimdin ;)) that would need a push from fans to get it made, or whether to go for an army builder figure that I would want multiples of.  I would normally choose an obscure figure because it could be argued that Hasbro will eventually make every type of army builder without a fan poll, but I want a super articulated Endor Soldier so badly that it was my ultimate choice.  I love displaying mini battle scenes like Endor, but I hate the ****** versions that have been released over the years.

Sorry dude.  I was all about a Kit Fisto bust.

As for my Hasbro vote?  I protested, and went with Tyvokka.  I know that George doesn't want anymore Wookiee Jedi, but he has to keep Hasbro from making a figure of one?!?!?

Then you're one of the guys who does care, not one of the ones I was talking to.

That said, I can't think of a single PT item I'd rather have over the most boring OT item.

No problem, the only reason I didn't bother with Veers is that there are already sketches of him floating around and it looks like GG is already working on one.  Same deal with Farm Boy Luke, it's obvious that they'll do that one, so why vote for it to get made?

Done.   ;)

Thanks!

So, is this a one vote per person thing, or is it American Idol style? Because I was just (apparently) able to get in two separate votes (I did the Bib for you, Rob). I didn't put in an email either time. Anyone know?

Ackmena got my vote. Several top choices that are on the fan boards are mostly shoe ins, so I went for the true long shots even by today's standards.

(And Bibs got my vote Rob.)

Yes she does. If you really look at the list Hasbro has confirmed are large chunk of them are on the slate for 2011 so Ackmena is a real underdog.
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Scott on August 14, 2009, 07:13 PM
That is all fine and dandy but it never really says anywhere how this vote is going to be compiled.  Some sites have lower turnouts than others, should there be weighting amoung the sites?  Should the ToyFare portion get more attention since they are the runners of the poll?

What I don't get is the lack of publicity for the ToyFare vote.  That to me is just as important as anything else.

I don't think it is American Idol style and it is more one vote per IP...but again...it doesn't say that anywhere. (Duros v. Amanaman anyone?)

A little preview info on the upcoming ToyFare poll thanks to the Q&A at Han's Hideout (http://hanshideout.blogspot.com/2009/10/hasbro-star-wars-q-session-17.html):

1. What was your gut reaction to seeing the raw Fans' Choice Poll data/results from the various websites? Were the choices more or less varied than you were expecting? Any trends that you saw that surprised you or any characters that popped up that were completely off your radar until this initial batch of results came in?

** One surprise was how even the results were - drawing from all six films and the EU. Of the films, though, each of the films has at least 3 votes, except for, surprisingly, EpV which had only one character (Toryn Farr) in the top 30. Given that, EpV is generally acknowledged as the fan favorite, it either points to how thoroughly we have covered the film (unlikely since there are many great character re-dos to go), or that fans want to see as-yet-unmade characters generally over re-sculpts (more likely, as there are only five resculpts on the entire list, and the first one, Dr. Evazon, appears at #10). Of all the selections, the strength of Jocasta Nu surprised us. We do not think she would be a strong or compelling figure ourselves, but if she did win we would draft her into the lineup. Some of the strength of fans' desire for her could be precisely because we have expressed that we would not consider doing her ourselves, so if she does win it's a victory for the fans who wanted her!

Yay for Toryn Farr and a Evazon resculpt making the list. :) 
Boo to the Jocasta Nu cheaters stuffing the ballot box at enough sites to get her on the list.   ::)
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Jesse James on October 2, 2009, 03:58 PM
Agreed to the "boo to the Ballot stuffers".

Fan's here are aware because we kept them up on it I think, but basically we had a LOT of people creating sock accounts to stuff the ballot box.  That's neither fair, nor mature (it's a toy line for Christ's sake) that they did this, but what are you going to do?  I spoke with some administrators at a few other sites and they too flushed out the "cheaters", but I didn't speak with everyone at every site, and I noticed the same stuff went on at other site's forums. 

Some seemed to catch it, others did not, or didn't pay close enough attention to bother.  The same sock accounts were turning up at most boards though, so it's no shock this was fairly wide spread.
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: JediJman on October 2, 2009, 06:36 PM
I'm surprised that Jocasta Nu made it given the widespread communication on voting fraud for that figure.  Did JD or any other sites communicate that this was happening back to Hasbro?  Just curious how aware of the issue they are given that response.   >:(
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Nicklab on October 2, 2009, 06:43 PM
I would not be so quick to say that there were any kind of shenanigans regarding Jocasta Nu.  She's ranked fairly high in figure polls over the past few years.  And I think that given some remarks from a certain Hasbro staffer (who has moved off Star Wars to another line, btw) in opposition to Jocasta Nu has somewhat galvanized the collecting community to back the Jedi archivist.

There's still the matter of ToyFare's poll to take into account.  And that can still shake out any one of a number of ways.

For that to happen at over 20 Star Wars collecting sites that had different criteria for conducting their polls?  Then it starts sounding far-fetched.  Especially since some sites were only accepting submissions from forum members who were registered before the Fan Choice Poll was announced.

Post by: Jesse James on October 3, 2009, 02:38 AM
I can't speak for every site, just that I contacted a couple, some IP's were being shared...  It happened at each I contacted.  I don't think signing up to a forum was an issue since that's where we ultimately first spotted the sock accounts and whatnot.

Maybe you missed this a few posts above, Nick:

I spoke with some administrators at a few other sites and they too flushed out the "cheaters", but I didn't speak with everyone at every site, and I noticed the same stuff went on at other site's forums. 

Some seemed to catch it, others did not, or didn't pay close enough attention to bother.  The same sock accounts were turning up at most boards though, so it's no shock this was fairly wide spread.

I would not be at all surprised if it was spread to most of SW sites involved.  If someone is willing to make fake accounts at 4-5 sites, then why not 19-20 sites?  It really doesn't take that long to register.  I pretty much just stay with JD and Yak (where this also happened), but which sites limited entries to existing members?  As Jesse points out, some sites were contacted and some caught it, but likely others that weren't paying attention did not.  If 5 or 6 sites had Jocasta Nu show up as a top vote, that's probably all it took for Hasbro to think its a real fan favorite.

Outside all that, I know of zero people who would put Jocast Nu in their actual top 30 most desired figures.  I'm sure there are some, but why in the world would anyone want a librarian action figure?   ???
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting

NOPE.

Check the website.  The poll has not gone live.  They still have the poll that was started in August posted.

If anything, it's likely to start Wednesday.  That's when Toyfare is delivered to comic shops.

Hopefully toyfare can weed out the "Spammers" that got Jocasta Nu on so many lists, and if not, then we all need to figure out how to spam their poll ourselves and get that Rebel Fleet Trooper done for Jesse.  

And Sadly no matter what I vote for, it will get negated by some random Video Game "Darth" that I have never heard of and have Zero interest in purchasing.

I don't think that's too surprising. The line is so new (relatively) that any animated "winners" would have already had an excellent shot of being produced anyway. I think the mailaway Nahdar Vebb is probably the closest thing to "fans' choice" figure we are going to get at least a for a while.

Meh. It sure seems like 95% of these characters are ones Hasbro would have made in the next few years anyway. I was really hoping Ackmena would at least make the list. :-\

I think either Jaxxon or Tarkin will be getting my vote.

Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Jeff on October 14, 2009, 11:19 AM
Not too shabby.  As a Cantina Dudes fan, I'm pretty happy to see Bom, Evazan, and Tzizvvt make the cut.  Maybe now they will get on them sooner rather than later (poor Bom has been in the 'parking lot' since 2001).

Also nice to see Jabba's Palace get some love.  A 'boring' human like Taym Dren-Garen probably didn't have much of a shot if not for a poll like this.

Jaxxon?  I'll buy him to show support for the Marvel stuff, but I'd still rather get Crimson Jack and Jolli first.  


I can't believe Corde and Dorme are on the list. Are there really that many fanboys with semis for these two snoozer characters?

Here it is - "The Legacy Collection Line Killer Wave":  Corde, Dorme, Jocasta Nu, Queen Apailana, Queen Jamillia, and Tey How.  Buy them all and assemble the hot-pink & gold BettyBot BAD figure.   :P


No animated style figures made the cut?  :-\

I don't think that's too surprising. The line is so new (relatively) that any animated "winners" would have already had an excellent shot of being produced anyway.

I agree with what Jayson said.  For proof, check out the JD Clone Wars Wishlist (http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=19127.0) we ran back in April.  It's only been 6 months since the poll ended and already Hasbro has confirmed figures for five of our top ten, with 2 more strongly rumored (Aurra, Cold Obi-Wan).  Give it a few years and then you'll see people wanting things from Season 1/2 that never got made, etc.


I was really hoping Ackmena would at least make the list. :-\

She had the whole "Hasbro already said no" thing going against her I think.  Same for the Tonnikas.  So many sites told folks "don't waste a vote" that I don't think the poll truly captured the demand for either of them.

Agreed but you forgot two more: Who the hell wants the two useless Naboo Queens as well?

Overall, I am very disappointed in the final list, too many WTFs.  I am not getting the whole Jaxxon or Jocasta appeal but at least they are obscure and fit the template for the Fan's Choice. (RS has a hard on for Jaxxon, seems like they want to 1 up JD on the ICMG therefore I will be against Jaxxon by default.). This list should be for the ultimate obscure characters like ICMG, Ackmena and while I am not a fan Jaxxon. Having characters like Tarkin and Evezan take away the prestige of the poll as they will most likely get their resculpts in the very near term.

Out of the list Dash is getting my vote, too many on the list are shoe ins so several seem to be a waste of vote. With Comic Packs going to the wayside a lot of characters from EU will be harder to get.

Figures I do want (In order of what I would want first)
Dash Rendar
Guri (SOTE: Evolutions)
Dr. Evazan (He is on the short list already, so it's a waste of a vote)
Grand Moff Tarkin (He is on the short list already, so it's a waste of a vote)
Balista Shan
Bom Vimdin (He is on the short list already, so it's a waste of a vote)
Weequay Skiff Master
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Sgt. Doallyn
Toryn Farr
Taym Dren-Garen
Sim Aloo
Bariss Offee
Darth Sidious (Senate Duel) (He is on the short list already, so it's a waste of a vote)

Figures I can live without but would most likely buy if Hasbro wasted the plastic on them:
Admiral Pellaeon
Cane Adiss
Clegg Lars
Darth Caedus
Darth Plagueis
Dormť
Jocasta Nu
Joruus C'Baoth
Kister and Wald (2-Pack)
Tzizvvt

Figures I refuse to by from the list because they are so damn stupid:
Ben Quadrinaros
Cordť
Jaxxon
Queen Apailana
Queen Jamillia
Tey How

Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: jedi_master_sal on October 14, 2009, 04:08 PM
Okay, here's my wants from the list:
Admiral Pellaeon (Thrawn Trilogy) X2-3 (extras for customs)
Bariss Offee (Attack of the Clones) X2
Bastila Shan (KOTOR) X2
Ben Quadrinaros (The Phantom Menace)
Bom Vimdin (A New Hope Cantina) X2 (extra for custom)
Cane Adiss (Return of the Jedi Jabba's Palace)
Cliegg Lars (Attack of the Clones)
Corde (Attack of the Clones)
Darth Caedeus (Legacy)
Darth Plagueis (Revenge of the Sith)
Darth Sidious Senate Duel (Revenge of the Sith)
Dash Rendar (Shadows of the Empire) (hmm, not sure if I'll get this one, it's at the bottom of this list for me)
Dorme (Attack of the Clones)
Dr. Evazan (A New Hope Cantina)
Grand Moff Tarkin (A New Hope)
Guri (Shadows of the Empire) YES!!!!
Jaxxon (Marvel Comics) If he's the realistic version, then yes, not the cartoony version.
Jocasta Nu (Attack of the Clones)
Joruus C'Baoth (Thrawn Trilogy) meh, this might be a pass for me also
Kister and Wald (The Phantom Menace)
Queen Apailana (Revenge of the Sith)
Queen Jamillia (Attack of the Clones)
Rebel Fleet Trooper (A New Hope) X5-6 SWEET!
Sgt. Doallyn (Return of the Jedi Skiff Guard)
Sim Aloo (Return of the Jedi Imperial Dignatary)
Taym Dren-Garen (Return of the Jedi Skiff Guard)
Tey How (The Phantom Menace)
Toryn Farr (The Empire Strikes Back) Oh HELL Yes!
Tzizvvt (A New Hope Cantina) (Didn't we already get this figure a couple of years ago? Prolly a pass for me)
Weequay Skiff Master (Return of the Jedi Skiff Guard) Definite need of an upgrade.

So in short, I'd buy at least one of each, with possible exception to Dash Rendar and Joruus C'Baoth.

I'm pretty happy with those choice. Though I agree that many (at least half) of these will see the light of day within 2-3 years anyway.

I wouldn't have been, only because I know who I contacted were quick to act as we were, when we saw voting fraud running rampant.  I don't think Scum, ironically where it seemed to start, did anything...  She made their final list they sent in IIRC...

I'll obviously vote Fleet Trooper first, Tarkin second, and Endor Rebels third (which I think are a given, but I'd vote them in anyway).  Tarkin resculpts aren't widely talked about so I think he's a great choice...  I don't know that ALL of those figures are locks, honestly, but that JD got 14 of them says a lot about our community I think.  

I'd buy any figure on the list, but those are probably my top 3.  Lots of oddness abounding in that list though...  I think some of them aren't necessarilly a lock these days, to happen in the next couple years, especially when there's implications that Legacy will be scaled back.

I still don't know who the vote for.  I would think Hasbro would just make several of these on their own like Tarkin, Evazan, Vimdin, Rebel Fleet Trooper, Sidious Duel, etc.  So, I may go for Cliegg Lars or Sim Aloo.  I'm going to be like Brett Farve and go back and forth on my vote for awhile.   ;D

Post by: JesseVader08 on October 15, 2009, 01:01 AM
Damn, there are a lot of figures that I want on that list!

Admiral Pellaeon
Bom Vimdin
Dr. Evazan
Grand Moff Tarkin
Jaxxon
Joruus C'Baoth
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Sgt. Doallyn
Sim Aloo
Toryn Farr
Tzizvvt
Weequay Skiff Master

This was not an easy decision, but I picked Bom Vimdin.  The Cantina is still my favourite SW scene, so I always enjoy populating it.  And even though he's "shortlisted", I think he needs a little push to get Hasbro's attention.

Far too many resculpt candidates on this list for my tastes, even if it's only 5 of them.  I would've preferred to have seen all new characters on the list.

I'm far from decided about who I'll vote for.  But I did notice one glaring absence from the list.  That being Cin Drallig.  I thought he had scored well enough on most of the polls to make it to the finals.  Perhaps Hasbro scratched him because he's already on the way?  Hmmmm.

I noticed that too ... either way, Hasbro's said that they want to make Cin anyways. If Hasbro expresses interest in a specific character, they usually make them .... so chances are maybe we'll see Cin in 2011? 2012?  ;)

Great list, certainly compared to last year...voted for Tizzvvt. Seems more of an outside chance coz Bom and the Good Doc WILL get made.

Plenty on that list i want, including quite a few "AreyouMad" choices like Tey How,Ben Qaud and Jaxon.

Looking forward to the outcome but it's good to make Hasbro aware of how any of these would be bought by the fan community at large. I bet the majority of these will see plastic within a couple of years.

In the end I voted on Cliegg.  I kind of doubt they are going to get to him...ever.  I think it might be an interesting figure if they give him removeable legs, hover chair, and maybe a clear post for the chair to "hover". But there are plenty on that list I want.

I'm a real fan of Jedi characters, especially females that havent been made (or need serious upgrades) - so I was hoping for Barriss Offee, but based on a Hasbro Q&A, she'll likely be released next year in a second wave of Geonosis packs. Jocasta Nu would likely not be made unless she won a vote like this, so I went with her.   ;)

I just like seeing someone over at Scum that doesn't have their head in the sand, or up their ass, who will speak the truth.  Most of them are probably not even aware that he and a couple others were going around stuffing the ballot boxes of other sites for a figure I think very few actually were willing to vote for.  So it's nice eyes are being opened to the facts.

It really is lame to do that though, and then bitch about it.  That's just two-faced and wreaks of a sleazy.  I don't know him beyond this, but if I were judging...  Well, hey, this isn't exactly a positive thing here.  It's really just lame to me on a whole new level I guess...  Part of me is annoyed he tried it here I guess, which thankfully our staff was well aware of the whole time.  It wasn't exactly the most covert operation though either.  ::)

Haha!  I just read this.  Palps is kind of a tool so it doesn't surprise me that he was floating through multiple sites trying to drum up support for his choice in this poll.  I always assume there's that type of shenanigans going on but to what level I can only guess at.  That was a point I made when I got called out on the PSWCS listserv by Mark from Yoda's News, that there had to be some ballot stuffing in the prelim but I would disreguard it since it was too hard to prove.

But I think the existence of Tzizvvt on the poll has to tell us something about how far some people will go to get a character made.

I can see Hasbro making Darth Plagueis. They could make most of him from existing figures. Since there really isn't any could picture source for him, we as collectors won't be able to complain to much about what he looks like. Basically he's a banking clan dude with sith robes on...

Darth Cadaeus is another one that can be mostly kitbashed from existing parts.

Kinda lame if Hasbro goes that route though.

I was really hoping for Bastila Shan or Guri (mustard/purple outfit).

Maybe not all four, but I do get Bastilla winning.  She was #5 in the previous 2006 Toy Fare poll and one of the very few from the last poll that haven't been made.  Makes sense that she tops this list.

The Darth Caedus/Plagius/Jaxxon thing though?  I'm seeing your point there.
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Jesse James on January 12, 2010, 03:37 PM
I get Bastilla too...  KOTOR figures are popular...  It's not even a current game, but it's still a popular one, even among the core collectors I think, and so yeah...

The rest I totally agree with you on though Scott, and I'm also not a huge fan of Toy Fare running the vote...

That said, a lot of the figures from the top list get made anyway, so yay for that.  Your lists have always done well too.  So I'm hopeful that trend continues.

But yeah, besides Bastilla, not much there interests me at all.  I may actually pass on some.  I'll probably buy Jocasta because she's in the movie, but come time I may pass if she's got some flaw like an odd skin tone or something.  I could easily see something I otherwise wouldn't normally let bother me, actually push me to avoid the figure. :)  Being a movie figure helps her though.

Still, you know there was once again ballot stuffing going on with her too, but I also think Hasbro's insistance she not be made probably conned some people into voting for her...  which I wouldn't trust much Hasbro says on stuff like that anymore.

I'm glad to see Jocasta Nu (and Jaxxon) make the top five. I think this poll is meant for characters that normally wouldn't have a chance of being made to get brought to Hasbro's attention. The other three would have probably been made eventually, but I think these results will definitely get Hasbro to strongly consider Jocasta and Jaxxon.
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: efranks on January 12, 2010, 06:42 PM
I'm happy to see Jaxxon in the top 5.  That was my guy going in, it's sort of a Willrow Hood situation.

I'm okay with Shan winning since I think she's one that should have been on Hasbro's short list anyway, and if this forces them into making her, I'm fine with that.  Jocast Nu, I don't understand the popularity behind her but she is an on-screen charactr with lines and also showed up in the cartoon so also not a terrible choice.

I'm not big on either of the Darth's, however.  I've never read anything with either of them in and I'd much rather have the Jacen Solo we're getting than the Caedus figure.  Darth P, I only know from the mention in the film, I've never read a novel with him hin it.

As for the other 25 characters, I think there are about 9 of them that are no-brainers, 5 are great aliens, 3 popular EU characters that would sell, 4 chicks that are about as popular as Breha (meaning nobody would buy) and 4 aliens that should never see the light of day.

Some comments and a question from me -

Firstly, do the Top 5 choices, too (besides Bastila Shan), get made into action figures?

And I'm glad, but not overjoyed that Bastila won. Funny how the top choice always ends up with a KOTOR person. 

I much rather would have seen either Caedus or Plagiues win - I'm split 50/50. And Jocasta would be a welcome addition to my collection - I just hope if she's made she's not a pegwarmer. And Jaxxon is my not-to-happy-about choice.
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Scott on January 12, 2010, 08:43 PM
I think KOTOR showings are a direct result of Toy Fare being very Video Game/Comic Book centric...not so much with Star Wars.  If starwars.com ran the poll, I really do not think you would have the same top 5.  Maybe I'm wrong...but I don't think so.

I will also say that I realize that our site and a few others out there not named Rebelscum are more of the old guard collecting since78 type people who are a lot more interested in the OT over the PT over anythign else.  I get that...but Darth Caedus did not receive one solitary vote in the last Defender Wishlists.  Plagueius got 2...2!  Jocasta Nu, Shan and Jaxxon were at least on the radar but seriously...cranky old man rant over

Yeah, KOTOR seems to do well in these polls.  Me, I never really played it so it's not appealing to me at all.  I got to admit that none of the top 5 do much for me at all.  I guess Bastilla makes the most sense she seems to be pretty popular.  At least I have heard of her.  Plagueis (sp?) looks just like the Emperor so I can't get to hyped for him.  I have no idea who Cadeus (sp?) is.  I see that he was in a novel though.  Jocasta is ok.  I would not mind having a figure of her really but she's not something I was dying to get.  Jaxxon would be sort of fun for something campy but I can't really say that I would actually buy it.  I hate to poop on the parade but they are all just kind of underwhelming choices to me overall.  I mean really?  That's the top 5?  I know they have made a lot of figures over the years that a lot of people wanted.  Honestly, I would be more excited if Bom Vimdin won the poll or even an Imperial Dignitary.

I like Bastila enough I'm contented with her I guess, but she wasn't really someone in my top 5 I wanted out of those 30...  Of course Tarkin/Fleet Trooper were my top 2, but even taking those two out, I probably could've found 5 or more easily that would've still been more important to me than that top 5... 

The only positive I see to the winners right now is that at least without droid parts I won't be compelled to buy them regardless, to complete something, which seems to be the case.  That way I can at least pass on the lamest of them. 

I like the thought of PLagueis getting a character/figure, but I think EU **** the bed with their choice of one of those banking wafer douches.

Bastila is a great choice for those of us who want the rest of the KOTOR characters made. With Revan winning the previous one, this just pushes the issue further with Hasbro that we are fans of that game and it's characters.

Jocasta Nu is a meh choice to me. I'll buy one of her and maybe a second to custom.

Both Cadeus and Plageious (sp?) would be great to include in a Sith Evolutions set. Maybe Sidious as a third Sith or better yet go much further back and pick a Sith from the KOTOR age.

I'm actually happy about Jaxxon. However I wouldn't want the Marvel style figure. I'd rather have the reimagined realistic style.  He's a funky character yes, but he'd be fun.

Look ma, a galactic ass-kicking bunny rabbit!

Thank you. That is the stupidest looking thing I have ever soon. Whoever dreamed up that abomination and threw it into the SW Universe should be skinned alive, burned, and buried next to Hitler.

I just hope if they make Jocasta Nu it is in the animated style since she appeared in TCW this season.

Although I'm happy for those who were really pulling for all of those who are in the top five, I'm sort of with Scott on this one.  For the most part, I could care less about the whole list...and may end up passing on most to all of them.  I'm sure they'll make for great figures, since Hasbro really does a pretty nice job with most everything these days figure-wise, but I really know next to nothing about them...and would know probably nothing if it wasn't for forum talk.  I may get Jocasta Nu since she is an actual movie character, but man, is that ever a boring figure otherwise.  Jaxxon is kind of funny just because it is so strange, so you never know there.  The other stuff I don't really care about, but they could make good figures.  I do think that the fact Toy Fare does the poll has an effect on the results too.

Here is another amazing result of this poll: Bastila beat out Jocasta by a mere .6% according to Toyfare (http://fareplay.wizardworld.com/2010/01/13/the-fans-have-spoken-star-wars-poll-spoiler/).  ::)

Edit: also there is a 50/50 split for male and female* figures for the top ten. So much for the weak popularity of female characters.  :P

I don't mind EU at all...I've bought pretty much everything.  I have a problem with how and who has conducted the last two polls because I don't feel it represents the collecting community at all.  It is includes votes from video gamer types who probably don't really collect SW other than maybe casually and vote based on it being run by a magazine that is caters to predominantly a video game/CBG readership.

To further that, look at how EU does here and to an extent at RS ontheir wishlist polls...certainly not 8 of the top 10.

Very pleased with the results. Bastila was a key player in KOTOR. And KOTOR has been widely hailed as one of the greatest RPG's of all time, as well as one of the most significant non-film contributions to the Star Wars universe.

I think when you factor in the broad appeal that KOTOR had with more casual fans of Star Wars, it makes Bastila's win that much more clear. And I think her win along with the top 5 gives some hope to EU fans that were disappointed about the cancellation of the comic 2-pack line some hope.

Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Adam_Pawlus on January 13, 2010, 04:17 PM
I will also say that I realize that our site and a few others out there not named Rebelscum are more of the old guard collecting since78 type people who are a lot more interested in the OT over the PT over anythign else.  I get that...but Darth Caedus did not receive one solitary vote in the last Defender Wishlists.  Plagueius got 2...2!  Jocasta Nu, Shan and Jaxxon were at least on the radar but seriously...cranky old man rant over

As a fellow old crank I agree with you.  Darth Plagueis' popularity is a little baffling, although it seems it's more on the potential of something that could be great rather than genuine interest in what he is.  I'm curious how many people knew he's San Hill in a robe.  (And as always, if anyone out there is a big Plagueis booster, just know that you are wrong, and re-education camps are being formed for your benefit.  Do not fear them.  They are here to help you.)

The percentages as shown on Wizard's site (http://fareplay.wizardworld.com/2010/01/13/the-fans-have-spoken-star-wars-poll-spoiler/) are really fascinating, and it does show that the voting fanbase is really split in what it wants-- even a "winner" is a not-very-big 10.6% of the vote.  Apparently nothing really got anybody all that fired up.

At #5, Jaxxon had just 4% of the vote, and everything after him didn't have a great showing.  If a poll's margin of error is +/- 3%, as is often stated, then you can pretty much round down the bottom 18 to 0.

I think it's a bummer that there isn't a single OT character in the top 10. I also agree with Scott that this poll does not accurately represent the collecting community. Oh well.

While I'm also bummed about the lack of OT I think it probably does represent the community.  Based on what people say in the forums and what I get asked in my Q&A column, the only real surprise is that Jaxxon did as well as he did.  (And to that I say hooray, I like Marvel.)  The rest of the top 5 were either heavily campaigned for or are relatively well known by the community, and anything under 4% can be statistically ignored really.

The overall trend in the top ten is enlightening.

-7 EU characters (3 from video games)
-3 PT characters
-ZERO OT characters

And the precipitous dropoff from the No. 4 to No. 5 positions is notable, too.  But it's clear that Jocasta Nu made significant headway in the voting.
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Darth Broem on January 13, 2010, 11:54 PM
Well I think part of the reason for strong EU showings in these polls is that those figures have a tougher time of actually getting made.  A lot of people probably just assume that whatever is from the OT and PT is going to get made eventually.  So, they may vote for EU instead.  To be honest they have made practically everything from the OT that we would be dying to get.  I want to see Sim Aloo made as much as the next OT loving person but it's not exactly something everyone else is clamoring for.  It's pretty much scraping the bottom of the barrell now for OT figures.

Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Jesse James on January 14, 2010, 12:52 AM
Yes and no...

Hasbro's track record over the years is, "most likely, yes", but that isn't a guarantee of course...  I think it's a good chance at some point though.  Though the percentages weren't staggering by any means, for any one character, and so that may play into Hasbro feeling some figure ideas there still don't have any real legitimate support...

Plus I feel sure Hasbro's still looking at that list and thinking a lot of fans maybe didn't vote for things like Tarkin, or some other OT character because they feel, "that's a likely figure we'll get".  And they're probably right.  I imagine (and noticed at least on Scum's boards at the time) a lot of people saying, "I'm not voting for _____ because they're going to get to him anyway (or because he was "rumored" or something)".  I know I saw people saying that about Evazan...  So does that mean Evazan resculpt is seriously that low on the list compared to Darth Caedus, or were people voting less with what they wanted and more with what they thought Hasbro's less likely to do?

See that's how "rumor lists" and other unofficial (and sometimes plain bull****) things can taint votes like that.  If Hasbro put out a list of 5 figures they said, "Vote now for 2, and the other 3 are off the table forever", I think you'd probably see a more pure vote.

I think a lot of people go into those votes with obscurity as their only rationale right now, especially EU obscurity...  At one time, Ephant Mon fit the obscurity bill great.  Nowadays though, Hasbro's not against making movie obscure on their own and so I think a lot of people feel the truly obscure is the Expanded Universe, which Hasbro only dabbles in a little and stay away from some forms almost totally.  Is that having some play in how things work?  I think it may.

That's a good point.  I think you'd see a difference if it was a situation of "vote for how you want, because the rest won't get made".  I'm tend to lean more towards OT characters/figures myself as well, but I can see the point of "scraping the bottom of the barrel".  There are still some unmade OT characters I'd like to see, and I think we all want to see the vintage line finished up in modern form (and I think we will), but otherwise most of what I want are resculpts of previously done (often POTF2) figures.  I don't think resculpts will finish too high on any fan voting, at least for the most part.  Again, like it has been said already, I don't think the ToyFare votes are necessarily indicative of the feelings of the overall fandom, but you have to wonder if SW collecting will start leaving some of us older "more OT" collectors behind.  Between the few OT characters remaining, the big CW push, and these constant EU (or previously, rainbow clone troopers) pushes with the big votes...it does seem like there is a shift.

I agree with what Jesse is saying too.  I voted more EU based - which may have been because of all the early reports, which turned out to be true, with the fall of the comic pack line.

I just went to Rebelscum and they now have the entire list in order of how al figures ranked.  The 7 of the top 8 are EU.  This leads me to agree with all of Jesse's points even more.

man, only 1 EU character didn't make it to the top - I smell hoax...

I'm also with Jesse in that the cult over there is drinking lots and lots of rumor Kool Aid and influencing who and what people should vote for based on scant to no evidence of things actually coming...I myself have wanted Bom Rimdin for ever but because ADAM_MAY or stan or even Hasbro might have said he is coming in 2012 there is no support.  Most people here have been at this long enough to realize that you can't trust Hasbro and everyone came make up a rumor list...one shouldn't rush to say then that everything is gospel because most of those rumors are bull****
Title: Re: Toyfare 2009 Fan's Choice Voting
Post by: Jesse James on January 14, 2010, 04:01 PM
I'd take it a step further that you cannot even trust Hasbro themselves...

The Q&A's fun, I enjoy it immensely, but if they say, "________ is definitely happening in ______.", I still am a little leary of that.  Yes we may get that Tarkin resculpt in 2010, or whatever, but we may not too...  Sometimes they say something isn't happening when it is, and sometimes the things they claim are happening seem to slip away a little bit, or "get pushed back".  It happens of course as a natural part of the line, but my point is just because it's been claimed in a Hasbro Q&A, don't necessarilly believe it as the gospel of the line's future.  It may not happen for a while, and if the line goes a totally new direction of what it is when they answer that question, then it may not happen at all.

Post by: efranks on January 14, 2010, 07:11 PM
I'm glad I'm not the only one that recognized that some posters, and sites in general, have interpreted Hasbro's statements incorrectly.  There are posters on RS, for example, that have been posting for two days now about how Bastila Shan was already announced and they're demanding Hasbro pass on her the same way they passed on Vos for Malak.

Unfortunately, Hasbro never announced her, not in the Q&A and not in the ToyFare article that people are trying to cite.  But, you can't argue with facts most of the time because, well, most people just want to be pissed off, they don't care if they're right or not.

Whatever.  I'm fine with Shan winning.  I do believe that these polls should be used to vote for characters less likely to be made by Hasbro.  Honestly, Tarkin and Senate Duel Palpatine, for example, are such main characters that Hasbro alsmost can't skip them.  So why vote for them in a poll like this?  Characters in the grey area like Bariss or the handmaidens I can see, even the (very, very) background OT characters like Taym Dren-Garen need these types of polls to help Hasbro guage interest.

One other thing, I refuse to accept that Jaxxon, the "space bunny," is somehow less of a valid poll option than Cane Adiss or Tzizvvt, the space giraffe and the space fly.  Especially Tzizvvt, which I think was the biggest waste of poll space and should never even appear on Hasbro's radar.

I may be totally off base, but I don't get why they even had this next round of voting - to get fans excited (again)?  How many of us have been collecting since POTF2/Ep1 if not from the vintage days?  Hasbro has at least 8 more years left.  I have patience and I'm sure all these figures will be made in time + tons more, so I'm happy with waiting and will just be kickin back.

Don't ever vote for ANY of that stuff because it's all rumored!  

That leaves 3 figures to vote for next time.  Boy I hope they get made!  ;D

Aha! The winner is all D&D aesthetics given a sc-fi nip and tuck - but people like her and to them i say "Well done sir!" (as i repeatedly bash my head against the net book.)  :)

Edit - even if people have voted for OT instead of EU they are still voting outside bets eg Evazan and Vimdin lower than Flyhead.

Best way to understand the poll.

Especially Tzizvvt, which I think was the biggest waste of poll space and should never even appear on Hasbro's radar.

Speak for yourself.  I love the fact Tzizvvt made it and I'd prefer ANY Cantina Alien, even the most obscure, "only in the photo stills/holiday special and not actually in the movie" type ones over any video game character, prequel queen, handmaiden, or Jedi librarian types.  Different strokes for different folks and all that I guess.     :)

Agreed. Any OT, even crap like Willrow Hood is better than Jaxxon. Good think I'm not a completist, if that **** get's made I'll skip it on clearance.

Crap?  I will take a character who was actually on screen and has a fun fan-based back story to his character over some goofy rabbit any day of the week and twice on Sundays.   >:(  Even if you don't like the figure/character, it's great to see Hasbro going all out to support the collectors on something like this versus some arbitrary poll with no safeguards for tampering.

1) Bastila Shan 10.6%
10) Bariss Offee 3.5%
11) Weequay Skiff Master  3.5%
16) Rebel Fleet Trooper  2.4%
17) Bom Vimdin  2.4%
28) Dr. Evazan  1%

Yet to be Made (24 of 30):
2) Jocasta Nu 10%
3) Darth Caedus  8%
4) Darth Plageuis  7.9%
5) Jaxxon  4%
6) Admiral Pellaeon  3.7%
7) Dash Rendar  3.7%
8 ) Guri  3.6%
9) Dorme  3.5%
12) Tzizvvt  2.9%
13) Kittster and Wald 2.8%
14) Toryn Farr  2.6%
15) Cane Adiss  2.4%
18) Cliegg Lars  2.3%

So, 6 planned for 2011 and 24 yet to go... of course, it should be noted that quite a few of those remaining 24 have been rumored for 2011/12 as well (Tarkin, Toryn, Quadrinaros, Kister/Wald).

I'd like someone to ask Hasbro what their plans are with this...took a while to even get the stuff we are getting this year and they don't seem too hip on the rest.
