    So here we go...when Season 5 is released for home video, who's pretty face on the box cover will sell the most copies?

    Is the rule that it can't be someone who has already been featured?

    And do they have to be in at least one episode?

    Given that, Obi-wan would sell the most. But Ahsoka is the cover Gotham needs right now.

    It would be cool to see how a Gregor cover would do, just for the awesome factor of having a Commando as the cover. Realistically, Maul is something that will draw in the casual fans who have only see the films so I'll go for him, even if I'm a staunch supporter of Obi-Wan for Season 5's DVD and Blu-ray.

    Oh my gosh I want to vote for you so badly Rex! You should have had that season 4 cover dammit. However when I think of the kiddies, the 18 year old stoners, the midlife crisis guys with fond childhood memories, or a casual fan/ animation fans like I was when I started walking down the isle at BestBuy (I know, I can't believe people still buy stuff there either!) I think R2-D2 is actually your best bet followed by Obi-wan. Obi-wan is the guy I want to get the cover, however I can't think of a more iconic character to put on the cover then R2.

    Screw it, I'm voting for Obi-wan. =b

    I didn't even think about him. Would be cool to have a commando even if he was only in the suit for three minutes. But yeah clones don't have the iconic Star Wars cache of Obi-wan or R2-D2.

    Really and truly the cover deserves Hondo. =b

    And Gregor should atleast get a disc.

    Scratch that, Ahsoka is the cover we deserve, but Obi-wan is the one we need right now... For sales and marketing. ;)

    I agree with that 100% - I put my vote in for Kenobi but really wish we'd get Ahsoka. When I think about her character I'm reminded by Filoni and GL talking about how when they started the endeavour, it really began with two premises - it would be set during the Clone Wars and Anakin would have a Padawan. Yet after 4 seasons, she still hasn't gotten a cover....and Darth Maul has. (not that I'm not a fan of Maul - I thought it was sweet to see his face on the store shelves again but Ahsoka really is getting the short end of the stick)

    Maybe they'll include a microfiber cloth with his image to wipe the discs off with...

    If Ahsoka gets a cover. I think it should be the one for the final season.

    Ah! I totally should have put that as an option....well i guess that's what the "Other" category is for.

    [face_rofl]

    Yea, I think that probably does make the most sense.

    Obi-Wan's definitely gonna get the sales. He's an iconic figure of the whole franchise, and he should be in the cover for the same reason (commercially, not in terms of s5 plot) yoda was in the s2 cover!

    I voted for Pre Vizsla, because he's going to have a main role in the arc coming up, maybe even as the main villain and he will have a lot of importance on the season. Ahsoka would be my second option since the season has mostly been about her so far and she's going to have a main role in some of the up coming episodes. It could be Obi-Wan or R2-D2 because of the main roles they've had or going to have in the arcs this season. I don't think it'll be Rex, because Cody was already used for the season one cover.

    Eh, most marketable ("will sell")? Maul or Ahsoka, R2 or Anakin.

    Should be most marketable and deserving (should sell)? Obi-Wan.

    R2 is iconic; I could see Ventress or Hondo but not so much on a marketability basis. Maul has become the new marketing tool, perhaps even replacing Ahsoka to the general public, and I assume the poll is aimed at them, not us SW fanatics.

    I voted Maul ($) but root for Obi-Wan (heart).

    Maul got the last one. Obi-Wan FTW!

    Wouldn't mind seeing Ventress though.

    As much as I love the other characters that have come to us from Season Five, if we are talking about Market image and appeal then Obi-Wan is the one to go with.


    Indeed. Given how the number of "Her arcs" this season has been more or less about her involved in things than anybody else. And I know that does not count since Maul was really in one episode last season and got the cover spot.

    Obi-Wan FTW... he is perfect for a cover. As much as I want to think it is usually about appearances, but it is not. Like with S3.

    Clearly Borkus is deserving of the Season 5 cover.

    I think any of the more recognizable characters would sell. How well is Ahsoka known about outside of fandom? She might sell a lot to entice young girls to buy it as she is their role model... but if she does get a cover, it should be the final season. Out of that poll, it should either be R2 or Obi-Wan for being the most iconic and recognizable characters (who have yet to have a cover), however as many of you know, in my opinion Season 5 should be Obi-Wan's cover.

    I think the cover should reflect who's season it is but since they don't do that maybe Ahsoka, Obi-Wan should have their go?
    But who would sell more? Boba Fett but he isn't even going to appear this season so they'll better not!
    (like Maul would have fitted better for 5th season instead of the 4th I feel)

    Pre-Viszla (helmeted) if the Darksaber is prominent.
