    • keith roby

      Screw you jackass Lando a peg warmer i don’t think so !! O.k they could have gotten a better choice from like out of a million character but he is one of the top one so i will get lando and Starkiller/Galen Marek and Emperor’s Royal Guard and Gamorrean Guard . Mara Jade ???? Hera Syndulla ???? And if i do get these character i will get them at a low price these two I don’t know about !! P.S hopefully the mold is some what the same to what they look like in HASBRO CHINESE 5 TO 10 YEAR OLD SWEAT SHOP !!!!!!!

    I really want Hasbro to do a Gamorrean Guard, even though it wasn’t my vote. But I’m also certain it will not be in proper scale when they do get around to it.

  • Miguel Sandoval

    Ha! Ha! Glad to see Lando in the top 3! Instead of some obscure garbage like Jaina Solo. Yes!

  • Pieter Ketelaar

    Jurg Sacul was robbed!

  • Ginsu117

    I really wanted HK-47…=(

  • Paulskywalker

    Bit confused now, other sites have different results. I thought this was the line up for the vote. Is this just Yakfaces results to go to the Hasbro poll?

  • Paulskywalker

    All great choices for figures, but i always feel like Hasbro is missing something when three blatantly obvious OT choices appear on the poll, especially Lando. Seriously Lando is the ‘fifth Beatle’ he should have had a figure ages ago! Two of the choices were in the last poll, Gamorrean and Mara. so i’m assuming ground work was done for them already. I’m assuming will see all these done at some point, the Snowtrooper was on the last one and Grievous has been confirmed as coming at some point. Just Dooku then has a question mark from the last.

  • HAVE YOU SMELT IT

    Hera was definitely a wasted slot. Bet they already have her sculpted.

    • Mother_Talzin

      I bet half of these are already sculpted…

      • Jeffery Morey

        Yeah was thinking same thing when I saw Hera I never had one person say Hero or Gamorrean Guard! WTF WHERE IS QUIGON AND BATTLE DROIDS!

    • Miguel Sandoval

      Wasted really? The fans spoke and you were out voted.

      • HAVE YOU SMELT IT

        the fans dont catch on. the fans still pay scalpers.

  • General Hux

    Plo Koon didn’t make the cut…I’m blaming you, Jayson, why? Just because. (JK) 🙂

    • Bombadgungan

      By the looks of the Jaina Solo results (elsewhere), I think your best bet would have been to drum up a huge social media following and then initiate a “flash mob” in the polls. 😉

      I do appreciate your support of the PT my friend!

      • General Hux

        The PT is great. Prequel haters can deal with it.

        • Darth Janus

          PT Jedi are awesome. Personally, I’d prefer Kit Visit before Plo, but I would like to see them make more PT characters. Especially Jedi. Dooku’s would be nice too!

          • souldeserter

            I believe Qui-Gon was already in the works last year. He showed up in the background of some video tour of the Hasbro workshop. I agree – I’d snap up Qui-Gon, Kit Fisto, Aayla Secura, Unduli & Offee, Mace Windu, Ki-Adi-Mundi, et al.

          • Bombadgungan

            Depa Bilaba! 😉

          • General Hux

            I would love to see a Kiy Fisto figure, too!

  • Bombadgungan

    Thanks for tallying the votes and posting the results Jayson.

    Glad to see Emperor’s Royal Guard made the top cut

    • Adam Holt

      Even though ERG, GG and Lando made the final cut in most polls I think many people shy away from OT votes because they think Hasbro will make them eventually. I don’t think they will without benefit of winning the poll. They could make 3 Hera’s for what it would cost to make 1 ERG or GG. And they probably already have her waiting in the wings. She’ll be this years “bonus” figure if she doesn’t win outright.

      • souldeserter

        I tend to agree. I always vote for my most-wanted figure, because nothing is guaranteed. Kind of takes the fun out of it, because I’d like for these polls to skew towards more obscure characters. That was how it was in the POTF2 days, because you didn’t need to tell Hasbro that Lando, ERG, GG, etc. were wanted — they made them.

    • Darth Janus

      ERG has the potential to be a great 6″ figure if they do it right.

      • souldeserter

        This is Hasbro, so it’d be a firm plastic outer robe with a soft goods underskirt. 😉

        • Bombadgungan

          I’ve been wondering about that. Soft goods give these figures a bit more richness, but make it tough to achieve an accurate look. Plastic can be molded with the texture, hang and folds that give the desired look, but come off as being less special, more toy-like and less like a collectible.

  • Daneil Fiers

    All the other sites have 6. What happened here?

    • I forgot to add the Gamorrean Guard. Post updated.
