    Tough choice between Plagueis and ROTS Gunray, but Gunray got mine.

    I'm not exactly a huge fan of EU, but reading that list Joruus C'baoth is the one that caught my eye and got my vote.

    Plagueis. However if there was a Fett that would have my vote.

    By the mists, they're offering TORYN FARR! Apparently she's either in demand or someone who works for Hasbro had seen my off-hand comment about there needing to be a Toryn figure. One cannot reenact Of Possible Futures without Toryn!

    She's getting my vote.

    JAXXON, all they way! Space rabbits FTW

    I expect to see a MARVEL Hoojib battlepack at some point as well :p

    Jaxxon, so long as it is the old Marvel #6/7 or whatever version, not the suped-up super muscle version.

    No Don Quiote Jedi Knight?

    OK...
    My second vote would be for Paleon.

    Man, some great choices there! I was torn between Mara, Pellaeon, Plagueis and C'Baoth. I figured Plagueis would have a better chance than any of them to get made because of his novel coming out, and figured Pellaeon was a prominent enough figure in the EU to be on Hasbro's radar by his own merits. I ended up choosing C'Baoth because the version of Mara that got chosen isn't the one I want most for my collection.

    But as long as an EU figure gets made I'll be happy. :)

    I voted a few days ago for ROTS Gunray. He's one of my favourite characters and I love that outfit of his.

    i honestly wouldn't buy any of those figures. it makes me sick to my stomach that jocusta nu is so wanted by fans. she will be as big of a disaster as yarna is she is released. can't you people see we are in need of a update on dash rendar.

    we don't need those random kid freinds of anikin skywalker in the phantom menace, wald and kitster i believe? they are the minorest of minor characters. dash rendar was the star of his own video game. not even boba fett can claim that feat.

    (imo boba fett is the most overated character ever. we need 50 different versions of a character that appearead for less then 5 minutes in the movies and died like a bi***.

    *edit* mara jade? didn't we already get a comic pack of her like 3 years ago??? also if i had to pick one of those i would pick guri.

    People seem to be obsessed with her for some reason. I ain't buying her. I would've preferred Darth Plagueis or clone's.

    Mara Jade isn't on my most-wanted list, but considering how important her character is to the Saga she is certainly entitled to a definitive figure. Besides, it's a near-certainty that as least one of the runner-ups will get made. Past figure selections have shown that Hasbro takes the results of these polls seriously.

    So, what, the 3rd version of Mara Jade?

    Eh. There were worse ideas.
    But usually they came direct from GL.

    But hey, I'm only buying droids, so they can pretty much ignore me--I think I bought all of 2 or 3 figures total last year.

    Well, none of those characters, really. How about a zombie stormtrooper, like from Joe Schrieber's Starwars Horror novel Deathtroopers? I find it an amazing Starwars thriller, set around the era of the original trilogy, and with accouple of the main cast, too! :)

    It'd be the perfect Halloween themed hasbro starwars figure, they already made a masquerette I seen somewheres online before, and It looked almost inspiring. :eek:

    Yeah, I'd pick up a zombie stormie if they made one. I liked Deathtroopers a lot but wasn't crazy about the second novel.

    You could always start a petition - it worked for Ice Cream Maker guy! (Willrow Hood). Took seven years though.

    Perhaps if I draw sketch cards of her, then Hasbro will make her. Though, there is still the hope that Hasbro will make figures of everyone on that list anyway. That might produce a figure sooner than a petition. I don't know who all would sign it. I know one person would sign it if it was for a two-pack that included burn-victim Samoc.
