Do you guys think we have enough traffic to participate in the 2009 Fan Choice Poll? Give us your feedback here, as well as your top 10 figures yet to be produced. I'll assemble them here and if we have enough commonality, I'll submit them to Hasbro.

You're actually still submitting questions? dry.gif

1) Yuuhzhan Vong warrior (resculpted to be accurate, not the monstrosity that is being released later)
2) Gilliad Pelleon (not in as a Grand Admiral, but Admiral or Captain)
3) Nom Anor
4) Bespin Han Solo
5) Shada Dukhul, Mistryl Shadow Guard (gets around Tonnika sister issue)
6) Garm Bel-Iblis
7) Luke Skywalker, Tatooine (you know, one that actually looks like Mark Hammil circa 1977?)
8) Lowbacca (I know the LFL/Hasbro stand on Wookie Jedi, but it's hard to argue against Lowie given his place in the Young Jedi Knights, NJO, Legacy of the Force etc)
9) SA Bespin Escape Leia
10) Marek Steele, 181st/Emperor's Hand Tattoo.

I’ve actually given this much (too much?) thought. I’m actually taking several factors into consideration when making out my list. I’m not including any character that is either strongly rumored or “in the works.” That eliminates updated versions of such characters as Admiral Ackbar, Gammorean Guard, Pello Scrambas (or a generic Rebel Fleet Trooper), Ponda Baba (vintage Walrus Man), Dr. Evazan, and Wooof (Vintage Klaatu).

I’m also not including characters that have already been made, but could use a modern upgrade. This eliminates characters such as Wuher, Captain Panaka, Anakin Skywalker (TPM), Jar Jar Binks, Queen Amidala (Theed Assault), IG Magnaguard, and regrettably Zam Wessell. I think Zam is the one Prequel character most in need of an upgrade.

Characters that are easy repaints, kitbashes, or basically only require a new head on an existing body have also been excluded. This eliminates several yet-to-be-made Imperial Officers, Rebel Pilots, and Jedi.

Finally, I’m not including any characters that Lucasfilm has emphatically said “NO” to. That means no Tonnika Sisters, Wookie Jedi, or anyone from the Holiday Special.

Instead, I’m pushing for characters that have yet to be officially rumored and would require brand new tooling. That being said, here’s my list:

  1. Sim Aloo (Return of the Jedi)
  2. Taym Dren-Garen (Return of the Jedi)
  3. Bastila Shan (Knights of the Old Republic Video Game)
  4. Carth Onasi (Knights of the Old Republic Video Game & Comic Books)
  5. Jolee Bindo (Knights of the Old Republic Video Game)
  6. Sith Trooper (Knights of the Old Republic Video Game)
  7. Nomi Sunrider (Tales of the Jedi Comic Book)
  8. Khaleen Henz (Star Wars: Republic Comic Books)
  9. Mandalorian Raider/Neo-Crusader (Knights of the Old Republic Video Game & Comic Books) I believe the ‘Neo-Crusader’ moniker originated in the comic books. They’re known simply as “Mandalorians” in the video games.
  10. Hayde Gofai (Attack of the Clones)

It pains me to leave Captain/Admiral Palleaon and Joruus C’Baoth off the list, but both are disqualified (by my own guidelines) on the grounds that both are potential kitbash/repaint cop-outs for Hasbro.

You bring up the most excellent point and is in the "guidelines" at most sites I visit with regards to this poll. Although, it does put Lowbacca in a precarious position but I don't feel I threw away my vote either. Hasbro specifically pointed to and named Tyvokka, in the prequal era comics, as a Wookie Jedi they are forbidden from doing (PS also never appeared in another comic either). Don't forget the no-no list also includes George Lucas based figures as well as Grebleips (the ET senators).

Here's my list. From looking at it, it's rather obvious that I am still a huge fan of the NJO series. I could have kept going along that vein, but I wanted to mix it up a bit. It seems like Gil Paelleon is a common favorite. The last two represent my neverending desire for more army builders. I've been wanting good versions of them for a while...

1) Captain Gil Paelleon
2) Tenel Ka
3) Han Solo (NJO era - They've done Luke and they're doing the Solo kids, so why not?)
4) Leia Organa-Solo (NJO era)
5) Yuuhzhan Vong Warrior (ordinary, common foot soldier which could be re-released with new a head and new weaponry)
6) Shada Dukhul (I like Paul's notion of getting past the Tonnika sister issue)
7) Garm Bel-Iblis
8) Corran Horn (Jedi Master - NJO era)
9) Rebel Fleet Trooper (BF2 style)
10) Rebel Combat Trooper (Endor or BF2 style)

The pilot Corran Horn is out with the Walmart 2-packs. I'm assuming he meant the Jedi Corran horn version.
