I voted Boba Fett. I mean, common... it's freak'n Boba! The only guy to back talk Vader TWICE!

"What if he doesn't survive? He's worth a lot to me."

"He's no good to me dead."

It's Fett for me too... and another pair of figures I'll never see in the same light again...

TFP all the way. And the reason is very, very simple: the smell. This is the figure I have the strongest memory of in terms of that fresh figure smell. He and Chewie really whiffed when you opened the packet and I love that. Oh yeah, and he's badass anyway.

4LOM is the same for me... recently got one from the deadstock loose that was going around and still had the card fresh smell :D

Yes! I had one of those and the smell of the cape took me back 30 years in a split second. Brilliant :)

I'm honestly surprised by this result, TIE Pilot progresses into the final four by defeating 2015 champion Boba Fett, and by doing so puts the last of the former champions out of the competition. I thought one of the previous four was a dead cert to win when all of them made it into the last 16 but apparently not as five figures remain for the title.
Semi Final one will be up shortly

Too late, now they probably smell like cheese judging from the picture. :lol:

It looks like he will, so fed up with the “Fett” tax, looks like the masses have rebelled! :o
