Forum Figure of the Year 2017 - SEMI FINAL - Match 1

Post by Stuart Skinner »

So we're finally down to the final four (well five, due to a tie), only 1 of the 5 remaining has ever reached the semi-final, that was Boba Fett in 2015 when he went on to triumph, so new territory for the other figures.

The first semi final drawn sees a three way match after Jawa and Leia tied in their quarter final, they are drawn out first and will be taking on the TIE Pilot. All have delivered some blows to popular figures on the journeys.

Leia has eliminated 8D8, Romba, Chewbacca, Weequay, White Bespin Guard, Nien Nunb and Leia Boushh
Jawa has eliminated Ugnaught, Logray, Walrus Man, Threepio RL, Threepio SL and Imperial Gunner.
TIE Pilot has eliminated AT-AT Driver, Leia Poncho, Leia Bespin, Han Carbonite, Yoda, Luke Farmboy, Sand People and R2-D2

Looking at those lists TIE Pilot has removed some big figures with the likes of Yoda, R2, Farmboy and Tusken falling at his black glove covered hands.

Should be a fascinating opening semi final

Kind of wanted these separated at this stage as the other semi final doesn't excite me, but draws are draws, I have gone with Jawa this time out, but whoever wins this semi will certainly have my vote in the final

Glad the forum saw sense and Leia recovered her deficit to tie with the disgusting little creature. This time round I think she's going to build on that momentum and kick arse! Go Princess!

I was nearly swayed from my previous vote but stuck with the little darlings that are Jawas
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.

I went Jawa in the QF but Leia this time. You have to feel for TFP he must feel a bit hard done by.

WTB Palitoy 30 back cardbacks, Lily ledy jawa, and budget Madine tri. Will give them a long term home. Have a Palitoy 20 back lxw to trade (London).

i also switched sides from jawa to the princess
I met him in a swamp down in Dagoba
Where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda
S-O-D-A, soda

I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said "yoda"
Y-O-D-A, Yoda
yo yo yo yoda
