Forum Figure of the Year 2019 - 1st Round - Group B

Post by Stuart Skinner »

Group B sees the first competitor from the first 12 range of figures as Chewbacca starts his campaign, quarter finalist back in 2015 was the Wookiees best effort and since then has seen him eliminated in the 1st round since, a disappointing run of form which he will hope to change here.

As far as previous performances go it's actually another group which lacks any real experience in the advanced stages. Power Droid has been a steady improver, 1st round exits in 2014 and 2015 were followed with second round eliminations in 2016 and 2017, however in 2018 he had his best run yet as he reached the third round. A second droid is in this group in the shape of FX-7 but he has no form at all with 1st round exits in every competition since it started.

There have also been first round exits every year for both Teebo and Barada too. But for 4-LOM he has cleared the group stage on three occasions, 2014, 2015 and 2018, but has yet to win a knockout match so the second round is as far as he has gone. And finally Leia Bespin, a great figure for sure but four 1st round exits have only been broken up with a single 2nd round appearance in 2015.

So looking at all their previous it could well see new blood reach the second round for the first time.

4-LOM gets one of my votes this time - great figure, great accessories, deserves to do better
Chewbacca - it's Chewie - nothing more to say
Princess Leia Bespin - getting my final vote, just, over Power Droid, nice figure, nice cape, winning smile - sounds a bit like me

Leia, Chewbacca and 4-LOM for me. It was a close thing between Chewie and the Power Droid, but the 'first 12-ness' of Chewie just edged it for me ;-)

This is a horrendous round. So many of these mean so much to me: Chewie was my first figure. PD I could never find new as a kid, FX-7 my brother’s figure coveted by me, Barada was the first of the Last 17 I ever found in a childhood collection in the 90s, 4-LOM’s harness is the last of of my childhood vintage figures. Such a shame to vote anyone out.

4-LOM gets first place for me
I've put FX-7 2nd as I loved all those mechanical arms as a kid, plus the head goes round and up and down.. brilliant!
Third was a toughie, but I plumped for Teebo as I was (and still am) a big fan of all the accessories he has

Leia, Power Droid and Teebo for me. Funnily enough, this round of figures contains none that hold any sentimental value for me, so I found it hard to pick the second and third figures, after Leia (who usually gets my vote) :)
You weren't on any mercy mission this time, Your Highness.

4-LOM is a massively underrated figure, sculpt and accessories and it looks like he’s going out again at the 1st hurdle. Other than that I’ve got for Chewie (Awwwgghhh) and PD (Gonk Gonk)
