FORUM FIGURE 2018 - ROUND 1 - GROUP J

Postby Stuart Skinner » Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:31 am

It's Super Sunday with an extra group being listed today. Over the course of this fine Sunday you will get four groupings to vote on as three more end. The final three groups of this opening round will then be listed on Tuesday. So make sure you check back over the course of the day to get your votes in, especially Group M which looks like a toughie.

As for this group it's totally the opposite, an uninspiring bunch of figures, not a single one of these figures has ever cleared the group stage in previous competitions, massive group on that basis for all of them as two will definitely proceed and see what they can do in the straight knockouts.

PLEASE SELECT THREE

VOTING CLOSES TUESDAY 9.30am

Difficult to believe that Leia Hoth has never made it out of the group stage, suspect she will this year.

Well I've just voted for her, but she's currently lagging behind, so who knows? :?

Leia Hoth, one of my favourite figures as a kid.

Haha i'm actually shocked by 3PO being in the lead, Leia Hoth and Han Hoth both look way better imo.

Golden Rod gets my first vote; I loved it when he came out and you could actually pull him apart!!!
Han Trench is a cool figure, I guess Leia Hoth gets a vote too... My favourite 'real Leia', but not really my favourite Leia figure though...

3PO gets my top vote too, purely for the play apart feature. Han and Leia come 2nd and 3rd. The rest just don't have it for me.

In this pretty poor grouping, Leia hoth after a slow start does come through and take top spot, with Removeable Limb Threepio picking up the second qualification place. I'm sure many would love to get drawn this Threepio in the next stage
