I agree, I think it's a terrific idea! I always enjoy the figure of the year poll, so this is like making it 3 times bigger and better
I seem to recall it also being mentioned at one point that having a cardback of the year poll might be interesting (I assume they meant favourite card front image, although we could also vote on our favourite backs of the cards as well). If one of those was to happen, I'd certainly take part.
Hi, should I split up the palitoy from the kenner items ? I was thinking the landspeeder ? and is there other vehicles that are different ?
It's up to you Lars, and everyone will have their own opinion. Mine is that for the vehicles, the Palitoy and Kenner variants of the Landspeeder, X-Wing and BD X-Wing genuinely are similar enough not to warrant separating them. The Imperial Cruiser and Imperial Troop Transporter however are very different (if perhaps rather dull in my opinion) variants on a theme, and probably should be separated, as they really aren't the same toy at all. The Glasslite TIE Fighter and TIE Interceptor are probably also different enough to just about warrant separate entries, but I'm also far from convinced that enough people care about those differences to complain if you don't separate them (perhaps if one of those ships were to win, you could then run a final extra poll between the two versions to see which one is the ultimate winner?).
However, for the playset poll, I would always separate the Palitoy and the Kenner versions of the Cantina, Land of the Jawas and Droid Factory. The two Cantinas and two Land of the Jawas playsets literally share zero parts in common. A superficial look at them makes you think they are pretty much the same, but they simply aren't; I repeat, they share no parts in common with one another at all.
It's true that for the two Droid Factories, the actual droid parts and pieces are indeed identical across the Palitoy and Kenner versions, however the stickers (and hence also the 3-legged R2-D2 - the thing most people seem to want from the set), the bases, as well as the boxes, are completely different, so separating them can be justified.
