I left out 2 choices due to restriction of the poll catering to only 10 options.

Sorry to EU fans for leaving out "Feb:Obi-Wan Kenobi: General - Clone Wars".:(
I know... that should have been reflected in the title...

Admiral Piett isn't up for order yet, lets leave him for next year.:D

I can foresee its going to be a race between "Darth Vader" and " Stromtrooper", however my choice is "Jul: Ki-Adi-Mundi", Whats yours?

It was probably a bad choice to leave out Clone Obi-wan as he would have probably run a close second to Vader. I think he may have possibly even won, with his announcement marking a new body, the first armored figure, and that fantastic head sculpt.

You are right. Its kinda unfair to leave that out. How do we go about changing the content of the poll. I thought we can put him together with EPII Obi-Wan.

Tatooine Luke will always be the quintessential incarnation of the main OT character. I've wanted a proper version since I was a kid, and SS has delivered!

There is no contest, is there?
Vader, of course.

Pretty simple answer, Vader.

I must not conform, I must not conform. It's no use. Vader all the way

Oh. I just realised besides Clone War Obi-Wan I missed out the Stormtrooper commander, both being EU characters. Guess we can declare this poll as being purely a non-EU poll. Nothing against the EU fans, the poll options simply couldn't accommodate more than 10 choices.:(

Darth Vader was cool, but I think I was actually more excited about the Stormtrooper.

Vader, without a doubt.

Christmas was good. And I did get the thong... You could have at least washed it first.

Definitely Vader. Followed by the Stormtrooper.

I'm really surprised that this even needed to be asked. While the armored Obi ranks as one of the top (his announcement marked the completion and arrival of the armored figs), Vader's a no-brainer.

V to the A to the DER! What's that spell? VADER!

Not being negative but with such high expectations, I do wish best announcement equals best figure of the year.

I am holding reservation as I don't have strong faith in the leather-type material on the figure. A similiar material on all my 3 pieces of Sideshow 12" Anakin cracked. We have seen recent cases of this happening to the Medicom Darth Vader. Do wish Sideshow has found a more durable material that can withstand the test of time.:)

Darth Vader no question. Outside of the HT Iron Man figure at SDCC it was the most impressive item.

IrishJedi
12-27-2008, 05:07 PM
Yep... Vader, easily. My 2nd choice would be Stormtrooper.

Is this poll a joke?

Who wouldn't vote Vader after three years of griping?

A taun-ton?

Nice to see a poll from time to time that actually makes sense.

I am not sure how the poll makes sense seeing as the outcome is as obvious as the noses on our faces.

Even I voted for Vader. Not because he is my favorite character, but the impact the figure has on the line can not be denied.
