Discussion in 'EU Community' started by EUC CotY Awards, Jan 12, 2013.
Don't know, thought I would put Mander Zuma on the map
I'm sure both Kir Kanos & Mander Zuma are going to get a lot of consideration. I have about ten characters on my list right now, both of them are on it, but of course some cuts will need to be made.
Plagiues is definitely in the running... I wonder who will shake up the EU in 2013... There were 6 books in 2012, 5 announced in 2013. I am predicting Ania Solo as Best new character for 2013...
I was excited about his return as well. Nom Anor needed to appear a little bit more.
I was disapponted they did not show him at the end. And what happened to that little guy who was assisting General Vota? he just disappeared...
indeed, i puut Nom Anor as my number one character in my list, i thought during all the series that Ennix Devian was Nom Anor with an ooglith masker, but i was wrong.
if it wasn´t Nom Anor behind the events of CEIII, i thought that it could be Lumiya seeking revenge after the kill of Carnor Jax (or at least a new apprentice on Kir Kanos)...
at least, with the suspenssion of Invasion, i could see a Yuuzhan Vong appareance in just one issue.
I have to say I do not really like the Vong.
The only one I really liked was Nom Anor, just because he was manipulating things from behind the scenes.
He is a really interesting character. I hope to see him again in the future in a novel/comic manipulating thing from behind the scenes.
He could be the one to create a war between the Hutts and the Corporate Sector. Always wanted to see something like that happening in a book.
Ulric Tagga could make an appearance as well as the head of the CS.
Hey, why is no one voting anymore?
The thread probably needs to be promoted more in Lit and Games.
Perhaps a pin?
Indeed! EUC CotY Awards should make some publicity...
Up till now I do not think many characters appeared in more than one list, so...
The CotY was promoted in Lit in their Social Thread right at the start. I went to games, but couldn't find a general social thread to advertise this in. It was also advertised on the TV Forum and in Fanfic, in their social threads, iirc.
For your consideration:
Bo Katan burst on the scene in 2012 with Death Watch as Pre Vizsla's right hand woman. Then she almost ended the romance of Lux Bonteri and Ahsoka Tano before it ever got started. Now she is looking to reclaim Mandalore, alongside the Death Watch, over the next couple weeks on The Clone Wars.(Avoid posting spoilers for unaired episodes please).
Does Bo Katan have enough tricks and gadgets to become the EUC Character of the Year?
I feel like if the Death Watch takes over Mandalore, it will be a big we are sorry to Karen Traviss
2012 EUC Character of the Year Awards1. Darth Plaguies - Darth Plagueis2. Asajj Ventress - Bounty3. Cad Bane - The Box4. 11-4D - Darth Plagueis5. Bo-Katan - Darth Maul: Shadow Conspiracy Best New Character of 2012: Bo-Katan
Too bad we can't pick Plagueis or Jahan Cross for Best New Character. Still there were a lot of great new characters this year, from Tohm in Ghost Prison to Xesh in DOTJ. Tough choices.
I feel as though we need to pick like 5, then have a poll pop up to ultimately decide it...
Tohm is maybe not as bada$s like a jedi, sith or mandalorian, but is a very interesting character.
Yeah, except Tohm has only one arm and is probably blind in one eye, yet still manages to hold his own against not only the deadliest warriors of the CIS but also the best cadets the Imperial Academies had to offer. That's one bad motherkriffer. And, it's hinted that he may have a minor connection to the Force.
I'm going to go off the board a little bit here

We have come to what is roughly the halfway point of the CotY Awards and everything is going great! Thanks very much to everyone who has contributed thus far and I know a bunch of folks who are still working on their picks, so more is yet to come! Thus far we have 11 groups of picks in!
Also we fully expect each fan club to give 'their' characters a home field advantage of sorts, so don't be shy!
I'm still working on my picks. Translation: I haven't taken the time and keep forgetting. But I'll do it soon. Helps that I read a lot of EU and watched all of TCW this past year.
This election really shows there are three types of fans.
1) The ones who watch TCW.
2) The ones who read comics.
3) The ones who read novels.
I consider myself part of the second group although I read novels as well.
I do all three and am far from alone. We have even had votes for Video Game characters and Action figures..
I'm not really seeing that at all, though I am surprised some comic characters haven't gotten more votes yet. While I haven't read DOTJ with all the good things I hear about it I'm surprised characters from it haven't been mentioned.
Yeah, I'm definitely all three types. Anyway, I have finally made my picks, with plenty of time to spare!
