    Yes. We got two good winners this time! Now it will only be 14+ months until I ever see one. :D

    Big thumbs up to Hasbro for this, I just wish they'd have done it for earlier fan polls as I seem to remember Amanaman and Poof being quite close in poll #2... :(

    Do you think they'll both be labled as Fan Choice, or just Antilles?

    "...as I seem to remember Amanaman and Poof being quite close in poll #2."

    But Amanaman was leading at the end, but Poof lost, right?



    I want Poof, not leads!



    :D

    I so mad when I saw that Antilles won because when I saw the winner on SirSteves it didn't mention Dodonna getting made as well. I was quite glad when I saw it on the Hasbro site.

    Now if only poll #4 hadn't been such a joke we might have Rieekan as well. Stupid Concept Art Stormtrooper. I will hate that decision as long as I live.

    Sithman - If I remember correctly Poof was in the lead for most the poll, but Amanaman overtook Yarael in the last few days. I don't remember the exact closing numbers, but I do recall reading a story about cheating taking place and people 'stuffing the ballot box' for Amanaman at one of the SW news sites. Also, I don't know if anyone else here remembers this or not, but wasn't figure poll number #2 closed for a few days because of problems cheating? I could have sworn it was... ?[face_plain]

    Oh well, Amanaman was my second choice anyway, plus I'd rather have a Yarael Poof done by today's Saga standers over those of Hasbro figures a few years back. Let's just hope we finally see him in one of those Jedi packs this year. :D

    Neck, I think it was Poll #3 that was closed for a couple of days cause of the cheating. Ephant Mon was in the lead for a while, and then suddenly the Twi'lek massuse took a commanding lead. Turned out someone was stuffing the ballot box in favor of her, so they corrected the problem, and Ephant won. Now, whether they're gonna release him or not is still a mystery, cause I still haven't found him... ;)

    Hey, that concept stormtrooper was just as valid a choice as any extended universe character. And in some senses, it is a lot cooler, IMHO.

    The concept Stormtrooper is just as valid as any other EU choice but the only other EU choice we've had was Nym in the same poll and he didn't win. EU characters have no place winning over movie characters and I can't believe people vote for them.

    Although at least EU characters appear in comics, the stormtrooper is only concept art so he is probably less valid.

    I will third that motion. Don't get me wrong, I love Ralph McQuarrie's work, and believe he was very instrumental in the success of Star Wars. But I would much rather have an on-screen character, even someone as obscure as Poof ;)

    I thought it was very cool of Hasbro to go ahead and make Antilles and Dodonna. I knew one of these two would win, because of the high regard ANH is held in. Hopefully they will come separately carded with some nice accessories and not thrown together as a two-pack.

    I'm very happy the concept stormtrooper won :D

    I can't wait to get a few of them. :)

    Now if the would just make a Rabe, Depa Billaba, Even Piell, Yarael Poof, Oppo Rancisis, and Yaddle :(

    I would love to get them especially Oppo and Depa. I don't need Rabe or Yaddle anytime soon though.

    Sithman, I'm confused. You want Econometrics? What movie was he in?

    Since two figures won, will they be labeled as Fan Choices #5 and #6? Or will they both be #5? I'm confused.

    Maybe one will be Fan choice #5 and the other will be Fan choice #5 1/2.

    I don't think Dodonna will be labeled as a fans choice since he techinically did not win.
