    1. Lom Pyke. ahhh.. his mesmerizing magenta eyes, smooth metallic voice and cute triangle markings... *not quite normal fangirling sounds* ฅ(•ㅅ•❀)ฅ
    He riminds me of H. R. Giger's alien. Unique design. "Sexual, yet unnerving; mammalian, yet insectoid; unhealthy, yet powerful".
    But I love him for his great personality! Unfortunataly he was shown only as a villain.
    2. Marg Krim. And all other Pyke characters.
    3. White Loth-cat and Tooka felines in general :3

    After 160 voters made public their choices, here we go with the FINAL Rankings, and some takeaways:

    The Big 4:
    1. Luke Skywalker - 1012
    2. Han Solo - 960
    3. Darth Vader - 943
    4. Obi-Wan Kenobi - 930

    Rounding the top 10:
    5. Rey - 679
    6. Yoda - 627
    7. Leia - 531
    8. Kylo Ren - 365
    9. Chewbacca - 361
    10. Palpatine - 353

    Very loved:
    11. R2-D2 - 320
    12. Finn - 225
    13. Qui-Gon Jinn - 205
    14. BB-8 - 200
    15. Lando - 102

    Still popular, but no so much:
    16. Ahsoka - 101
    17. Padme - 88
    18. Poe Dameron - 86
    19. Darth Maul - 85
    20. Anakin Skywalker - 78

    Multiple top position:
    Luke Skywalker - 34 times
    Darth Vader- 33
    Han Solo - 27
    Obi-Wan Kenobi - 23
    Rey - 10
    Leia - 4
    Yoda - 3
    Qui-Gon - 3
    Kylo Ren - 3
    Palpatine - 3

    TAKEAWAYS:
    - People absolutely love Luke, Han, Vader and Obi-Wan. They are the most popular by far. But Luke is the only one to break the 1000 points barrier, making him the most loved character in our community.

    - Rey and Yoda are in the next tier of favorite characters. Impressive, most impressive for the rookie to be top-5 after just one movie. We'll see how she ranks after her trilogy is over. Yoda wins the battler of favorite alien creature beating Chewie by almost 300 points.

    - In the villain department, Kylo Ren beats Palpatine (surprisingly IMO) after just one movie under his belt. Vader is in a league of his own.

    - Regarding the droids, BB-8 is insanely popular, but there's no beating the original one. R2 wins this and 3PO finishes with a paltry 52 points.

    - If we add Anakin's points to Vader ones, he would have finished with 1.021 points, beating Luke for the most popular character in the saga. There are people who have voted JUST for prequel era Anakin, so don't know if adding it would be valid.

    - Boba Fett is very popular in the GA, but no so much here, he finishes with just 68 points. Unable to make the Top-20.

    - Out of 160 voters ballots, the first position was monopolyzed by Luke, Vader, Han, Obi-Wan and Rey on 127 of them. Roughly 80% of the time the top choice was one of those 5 characters.

    I will make a new thread after The Last Jedi is released. Everyone will be able to add their revisions and new additions (hello Rogue One and TLJ) there.

    4. Rey

    are my top four and everyone else is equally as great. :D

    Since this is "all saga", it seems more appropriate here. Enjoy.

    Let's be clear about something. Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader are not separate characters. Anakin is the character. Vader is the persona.

    That sounds like a good discussion for another thread. I personally agree that both Anakin and Darth Vader should be viewed as two sides to a single character.

    Little surprised Anakin is lower than Ahsoka. Power of Character pander must have been stronger than I thought.

    I said rough order :p

    They're all actually tied for first, I just numbered them to help myself keep track. You know me, I'm a firm opponent to ranking SW things.
