Forum Figure of the Year 2019 - Round 1 - Group A

Post by Stuart Skinner »

So here we are for the first group of the 2019 Forum Figure of the Year, check back regularly today as the first four groups will be added.

PLEASE CHOOSE THREE FIGURES FROM THE LIST

Top Two will progress for the knockout stages
Voting Closes 8.50am on Friday 4th January

Group A is a little uninspiring to be honest, out of the seven figures vying for a spot in the second stage only Death Star Droid has ever been further than the second round, and even then he was eliminated in the third during the 2018 competition. Max Rebo and Han Trench have never cleared the group stage and for Bib Fortuna, Hoth Rebel Soldier and Threepio Removeable Limbs they have only reached the second round on one occasion. So the experience certainly points to Death Star Droid where he has cleared the group stage on two occasions, in 2017 and 2018 and R2-D2 Pop Up Saber who has reached the second round on three occasions, each time to lose out in the second round.

LET THE VOTING BEGIN

Hoth Rebel Solider is my top choice in this group - loved this figure as a child and still love it now
Han Trench is my second option - feeling a little more love for him this year
Bib Fortuna completes my choices - just pips DSD, Bib is a beautiful figure, deserves some recognition

Going with playability here:

Bib Fortuna - wicked looking figure.
R2 pop-up - just for the fact that a saber could be hidden and then revealed
C-3PO - used to love carrying it around in the bag.

Bib tops my choices here- always thought he was a superb figure!
I loved Max Rebo too but unfortunately I also loved my Threepio and Hoth Rebel soldier, and they pipped him to the remaining two spots. :)
You weren't on any mercy mission this time, Your Highness.

Enjoy clearing my mind (doesn't take long :lol: ) and just look at picks and clicking!

The result was DSD, R2 pop up and Han Trench (despite having wrong gun in pic!)

Also discovered I have an issue with bib fortuna's face, that's the he didn't get a vote :lol:

R2, DSD and Han (even if he has the wrong weapon :wink: )for me too.
Never understand why R2 pop up never gets any love.
Come on R2!
Absolutely love this!
