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

Post by Stuart Skinner »

The final group for today is another interesting one, for me four of my favourite figures pop up here.

I said in the build up to this months competition that the Cantina aliens don't get the recognition they deserve, here we see two going head to head in a tough group. But perhaps my love for these figures isn't shared across the community as Snaggletooth has three times been eliminated at this stage and on the other two occasions has fallen in the second, Greedo doesn't fair much better 2 first round exits, 2 second round exits and his best is a 3rd round exit last year.

Another first 12 figure in this group sees the Sand people take to the battle, a stunning figure with great cape and weapon, but his best was a quarter final in 2017, but two first round eliminations shows he isn't everyones favourite.

Squid Head is perhaps one of the best sculpts from the Jedi range, great figure and awesome accessories, however, although he has cleared the group stage on three occasions he has yet to win a head to head match to progress beyond the second round.

As for the other three well what can you say, Han Carbonite has always fallen at the group stage, whereas White Bespin Guard has not only fallen at this stage every year but 4 out of the 5 years has finished bottom of his group. That leaves the General, Carl Dennis will promote him but Madine surely will fall at the first round stage like he also has done at every previous competition.

LET THE VOTING BEGIN

PLEASE PICK YOUR THREE FAVOURITES

Real tough group this

Greedo - given - top 10 figure right there
Sand People - again another given - another top 10 figure for me and very close to being my focus figure
Snaggletooth - toss up between Snag and Squid Head but having a look at both now Snag wins it, so many memories that little chap gives me

I'm with Stu on this, although the last place was between the figure I could never find as a kid (snaggletooth) and the one that stopped my last 17 try logo run (Han Carbonite)

Old chunky neck lost out to the little guy (Snaggletooth, not Stu!)

I have to agree, tough to pick the third.
Greedo and Tusken, but I’ve gone with Squid Head as it is really one of my favourites.

Squid Head is one of my all time faves, so straight into top spot
Greedo isn't far behind, so an easy second choice
Third was a pretty easy vote for me too; Sand Person... I choose you!

Madine wins this outright for me - loved the figure as a child! Greedo and Squid Head make up the other two picks, purely based on their sculpts, especially Greedos head, and Squids soft goods. :)
You weren't on any mercy mission this time, Your Highness.

If it isn’t enough that Squid Head has awesome hands and face sculpt he has 4 frigging accessories. He’s straight in at no. 1, followed closely by the Tusken. I love the Cantina Aliens but Greedo just pips it here. This was another toughie for me.
