    :/ I find it concerning that the votes are being counted by using comcast email address and not publicly, because I’ve seen and heard many people complain that comcast is filtering their email whether they want it to or not. Business people mind you, not just fan sites. They often don’t know until someone says ‘did you get my email?’

    I cannot believe that a vote is even necessary to get this figure.

    • HK-47

      It’s not they already confirmed that figure is being made at a recent q&a.

      • 11Eleven11

        I missed the news, but I am THRILLED to hear it.

  • Columbus019

    How about a special redo of Saelt-Marae, or Yak Face to most!

  • Simon g-m

    We need a figure of Matt the radar technician

  • Richard Grissom Jr.

    We must vote for Jar Jar! You know he ain’t gonna get made if we don’t. Haha!

    • Bombadgungan

      I didn’t suggest him because I figured he WOULD get made. Maybe I need to reconsider. 🙂

  • Jeffrey Grant

    Starkiller, come on guys, make it happen

  • MandalorianDragonTrainer

    Hera Syndulla

  • Jeff Schwarting

    Still looking for the box set of all bounty hunters from ESB

    • Bombadgungan

      Cool, but at this point I’d want them singly. I’m halfway there! I’ve already got Boba Fett, Bossk and IG-88.

  • Jackiesha Reynolds

    Darth Talon……..

  • Qui-Ken Jinn

    Cad Bane!

  • Danny

    Querry: Why are these meatbags not voting for him?

  • Kirby4Ever

    * Asajj Ventress!
    * Force Awakens ‘Old’ Luke (can’t believe we still haven’t got one!)

  • michael

    Lando Calrissian… seriously We should have gotten one well before now!

  • Doog

    Cast my vote for Amanaman, but I can get the interest in having a complete set of the Ghost’s crew in realistic form. Interested to see how this Fan’s Choice is going to turn out

  • Artemis

    Oola

  • Lamar the Revenger

    JAXXON. End of story.

  • Pieter Ketelaar

    I think collectors would be a whole lot less cynical if Hasbro could deliver the figure(s) that won the last contest first.

    • Zarco Rey

      Won, you mean what Hasbro decided in advance. These polls are rigged. Always have been.

      • Danny

        If they are rigged with the result of Revan, I’m in!

    • Bombadgungan

      They’re coming, there was just a priority to get TFA figures out while that movie was still fresh. I imagine we’ll see Sabine and Revan this Fall.

  • Jeremy Agustin

    Grand Admiral Thrawn.
    make it so.

  • Guillemette-Moreau Simon

    Matt the radar technician

    • RumDumb

      Don’t lure me to the dark side of collecting …that would be tempting! “Tempting”…because its the character that line needs.

    • Michael Hawkins

      I think technically SNL owns the rights to Matt right?

      • Guillemette-Moreau Simon

        Maybe… But im not sure

        • souldeserter

          There will be a Matt figure someday, probably some sort of exclusive. No doubt in my mind.

  • Mike Esquivel

    HK-47

  • Ofek Siegel

    Listed from most wanted to less wanted:

    Fives (Arc Trooper)
    Cad Bane
    Ahsoka Tano (TCW Season 3.5 – 5)
    General Grievous
    Assajj Ventress (TCW Season 1-2)

  • Captain Ithano!

    • souldeserter

      Great choice AND great avatar! Kalatov/Urusevsky were amazing.

      • Thanks. Tatyana Samyolova’s lead performance is one of my all-time faves.

  • Andrew Nemetz

    Starkiller, of The Force Unleashed. This character diserves a second opportunity of the franchise.

  • Tannith

    Doubt it’ll ever happen, but I voted for Ree-Yees.

  • Michael Hawkins

  • mic windu

    3.75 SA figures

    • RumDumb

      Awww yeah

  • Cassie L

    I know we already got a Rebels Ahsoka, but I’d love to see a Clone Wars era Ahsoka!

    • Bombadgungan

      I would love to see a 6″ TCW Season 1 Ahsoka. But it just dawned on me that she would be translated into a “realistic” look. Not sure if they could pull it off and still have it look faithful to the CGI character.

      • Lead Crow

        why? they would just use the same model from the Vintage Collection figure and update that. not that hard.

        • Bombadgungan

          The TVC figure was season 3, 4, 5 Ahsoka. My concern is in translating the young “tween” tube-top Ahsoka into a realistic look. I’m not saying it can’t be done, just in my mind it seems like more of a challenge to take the younger version from cartoon to realistic than the more mature versions.

          • Lead Crow

            sorry i didn’t notice you were asking for season1. i think the OP is asking for 3+ though.

            mindyou a season 1 would be interesting. they did child anakin 3.75″ so i’m sure they could do season1 ahsoka. these guys are pros.

  • Christopher

    MACE WINDU!

  • Kelso

    Gamorrean guard!!
    Also share Hutts idea 6″ Rancor all the way

  • Adam Graser

    I know the rules stated only one character, but Echo and Fives as ARC troopers in a combo pack. That is the only way they should be sold.

  • CadBane

    General Pong Krell (The Clone Wars)

  • Jason

    The Max Rebo Band!

  • Mother_Talzin

    I’ll be voting for Mother Talzin!

  • Paulskywalker

    Fan polls are always good, but this is why i didn’t get my hopes up when they announced their announcement a couple of weeks ago.

  • Xo Tica

    Savage Opress

  • General Hux

    Plo Koon! We need some prequel love!

  • Definitely hoping for Hera 😉

  • Eric Rasmussen

    Really would like to see Tarkin win this because it’s the only way it would happen. Characters like TFA Luke/Leia seem like a waste because they’ll be doing those for Episode 8 anyway. And I assume it’s just a matter of time before troop builders like the Royal Guards get made.

    • Which is exactly why the TBS6 line is just a novelty. Nothing was off limits of really in danger of not being made in 3.75″ scale. You’re right, TBS6 has narrow tunnel vision with the array of characters it can produce.

      • souldeserter

        I think Hasbro is playing the long game. With the new films, they can afford to reduce the release of Lucas-era characters to a trickle as filler between launches. Long-time fans who have jumped to 6″ TBS are strung along potentially for years waiting for obvious characters like Lando, Jawa, Emperor’s Royal Guard, Ackbar, cantina creatures, Qui-Gon Jinn, Count Dooku, etc. The fan polls will always favor EU characters, which will further limit how many Lucas-era canonical characters will be made each year.

  • R2-Matthew

    So many good ones left. Hopefully we can get TFA Luke, Ithano, Tusken Raider, Royal Guard, or Gamorrean Guard.

  • hutt

    Don’t forget about a Rancor…a 6″ version would be rad. It’s quite a bit smaller than a TIE…it’s possible.

  • Santiago Rios

    General Leia Organa The Force Awakens

  • BILLSID

    JAXXON

  • Lando Griffin

    Jaxxon

  • Bombadgungan

    Emperor’s Royal Guard (ROTJ)

  • Gus524

    The Tonika Sisters two pack.

    • Tannith

      Not gonna happen. We never got them in 3.75 because the actresses wouldn’t consent to it.

  • Wam Blam Lufba

  • wilcofan99

    We got Revan, lets get Malak!!

  • ronstoneygold

    Tonnika Sister

      In other words, just don’t post any comments on this thread. 🙂

      • Bombadgungan

        But it is so much fun to see everyone’s ideas and chat about the choices.
