The Official Snowtroopers.ca Fan's Choice Poll 2011 thread!
« on: September 08, 2011, 02:17:47 AM »

In honor of Mit_Othy's recent qualification to meet the minimum number of posts to participate in the Fan's Choice Poll, I hereby declare the Hasbro Star Wars Fan's Choice Poll for 2011.... ON!!!!

IMPORTANT POINTS and RULES:

- this poll will ultimately help determine a character to be included in Hasbro's STAR WARS action figure line in 2013.

- every Snowtroopers.ca member who has been a member for at least ONE YEAR and has a minimum post count of 50 posts (1665 for Mit_Othy, 647 for JediPatrick) as of Sept 9th 2011, is eligible to participate. Voting begins right NOW in this thread!

- each voter can provide up to a maximum of 10 choices, ranked in order of importance from 1-10 (e.g. 1 = the figure you most want); there is no minimum so if you can only think of 5 figures you want made, you can just submit 5. The #1 ranked figure from each person's list is worth 10 points, the #2 is worth 9 points, and so on.

The resultant point values will be used to generate the final ballot of 20 choices, which will be announced in October by STAR WARS Insider on their website (http://titanmagazines.com/t/star-wars-insider/). Fans will then be able to vote on STAR WARS Insider's site for their favorite character out of the Top 20, and the character with the most votes as of Dec 1st will be the new STAR WARS Fans Choice figure!

- any Clone Wars character which wins will be done in the realistic style.

- the winning character will be announced at Hasbro's 2012 Collector-Fan Media Day event at Toy Fair in New York in February 2012.

- the last day to submit your choices for Snowtroopers.ca in this thread will be Monday, September 26th 3pm EST. Any posts entered after that will not be considered.

- you may want to be very specific about the figure and how it should be done e.g. "TC-14 (BaD)" and "TC-14 (new sculpt)".

- Choose from any canon or EU sources, but remember that Hasbro has disqualified the Tonnika sisters and any wookie Jedi in past Q&As.  They've also been hesitant to do things like crispy Owen and Beru (but that said, they didn't say they'd NEVER do it).

- the MOST IMPORTANT RULE to remember: once you've posted your list in this thread, you cannot go back to edit it and make changes, so please post CAREFULLY. I may allow a change based on spelling errors or some other issue unrelated to character choice but please pm me first before you do an edit. Otherwise, any edited entry would be disqualified. If you only have 5 figures to submit initially, post it, then realize you have 5 more choices, you would be out of luck so I advise participants to give themselves time to think things over and post closer to the deadline.

- number your choices in this format:
1. XXX
2. YYY
3. ZZZ
(and so on...)

- remember to pay attention to which characters Hasbro has already announced will be coming in 2012 so that you don't waste a vote!  Check rebelscum's forums where they maintain a checklist of rumored and confirmed figures. Last time we had 3 people voting for Admiral Ackbar even though Hasbro had already stated he was definitely coming in 2011 (and boy what a great figure he was).

- you can use THIS thread: http://www.snowtroopers.ca/forum/index.php?topic=21839
as a place to campaign for your favorite character or to synchronize naming schemes in case it is a really obscure EU character that may not be well-named.  You can also use that thread to post your current top 10 list and encourage others to vote along the same lines as you plan to. Any top10 list you put in that thread can be re-edited endlessly but obviously would not count in the final vote until you re-post it in this thread. ALSO, if you want to pose any public questions about this poll, post those questions in the thread I've given above, NOT in this one.  Only actual top10 entries should be posted in this thread.

So let's have every qualified Snowtrooper participating and I look forward to seeing just who the top 10 choices among our community will be!  Have fun!!!   :kar:

Edit: Update Sept 21th 2011: Just one more tidbit sent to me by HunterPR/Hasbro today:
"As you prepare your site's list based on your fans' polling, please remember that the winning figure must fit on a basic card, so no oversized characters will be considered, and that the characters must be drawn from existing STAR WARS storytelling, so "behind the scenes" characters are not eligible."

So no George Lucas... dang!!!  I wanted a 1977 George Lucas SA figure... or even a "2011 plaid-shirt George Lucas tinkering endlessly with the BluRay material" figure.  Really.

Why no Wookie Jedi?

Sigh. Remember the rule above - don't ask your questions in this thread... use the other thread I provided. This thread is only for posting your finalized top 10 choices.

And the answer supposedly is that Lucas felt it might be confusing for fans to have Wookie Jedi around in the SW universe.  :confused0024:

I only modified my numbering because my 8 ) became 8) without the space. In light of Hasbro's "No large figure" rule #8 is out anyway.

Any figure released in the vintage line that has not been redone. Specifically that Imperial Dignitary (whatever the hell his name is now, thanks to the Role Playing game or Card Games), the mustachiod honky Bespin Guard, and any skiff guards that aren't exactly remade (Barada, Nikto Guard - not sure if perfect remakes are pending for these or not). Any further "modern" Ewoks would be welcomed by my shelf also.

Edit: JR, you'll have to put it into the 1-10 format in order for the nominations to be included into the vote...  I don't make the rules, I just follow them. Oh wait, I did make the rules...   :speechless-smiley-004:  Anyway, come on everyone let's make my life a bit easier here... Nappy

Sorry here we go:

1) Imperial Dignitary from Vintage Power of the Force line

2) Mustachiod Bespin Guard from Vintage Empire Strikes Back line

3) Lumat from Vintage Return of the Jedi line

4) Nikto Skiff Guard from Vintage Return of the Jedi line

5) Brea Tonnika

6) Senni Tonnika (Don't come to me with problems acquiring the rights, come to me with figures. You're rich enough)

7) Sgt. Doallyn from Jabba's Palace

8) Fozek from Jabba's Palace

9) Jess (Lady Gaga) from Jabba's Palace

And that is all. Thanks for making this work Napseeker!

I threw this together using the rebelscum list as a guide. My main interest is anyone from vintage that has yet to be done, and anyone from the OT that has never been done. So there's lots I'd be happy with.

I thought the death squad commander was confirmed for a vintage card somewhere, but he is appearing on the rebelscum voting list, so perhaps he's not. If he has been confirmed, please drop him from my list and bump everyone up to include the power droid.

1   Sim Aloo
2   Death Squad Commander (Vintage)
3   Commander Praji
4   Barada
5   Fozec
6   Hoth Rebel Soldier (Vintage Commander)
7   Toryn Farr
8   Vintage Nikto (Vink'to)
9   Taym Dren Garen
10   Mosep Bineed


11   EG-6 Power Droid (Lars Homestead)
