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

Post by Stuart Skinner »

Group I sees a bit of a Lando off as both Lando Skiff Guard and Lando general pilot both drawn into the same group. In fairness neither have performed particularly well previously, Lando General has always fallen at the opening stage whilst Lando Skiff has only failed once to not get out his group, but the four times he has he has lost every time in the second round.

R5-D4 will be hoping for one of his better years after mixed seasons previously. A semi final in 2015 was the highlight and last year he reached the quarters but the other three years has seen elimination in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds.

The other three figures have seen both Chief Chirpa and A-Wing Pilot always fall at the group stage whilst the Imperial Commander has had one outing out of the group stage to be eliminated in the second round.

LET THE VOTING BEGIN

PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR THREE FAVOURITES

VOTING CLOSES AT 1.50pm ON THURSDAY 10th JANUARY

Lando Skiff Is the easy choice from this group
Chief Chirpa - integral to the falling of the Empire, be surprised if anyone doesn't vote for him to be honest
Imperial Commander - Like him, nice solid figure

Tough group for me as I like them all but I’ve gone for Lando, Lando and A Wing. Let’s make it the year of the hero

Out of this bunch I only ever had R5 as a child, so he’s number 1 choice. Lando general and the A-wing pilot take the second and third spots- both figures I didn’t know existed until I picked them up in a collectors shop in Glasgow in be early 90’s. Difficult to leave Lando Skiff, Chirpa and the Imperial Commander out, tbh, but that’s my choices :)
You weren't on any mercy mission this time, Your Highness.

I'm surprised Lando SKiff never does well, I think he's a great figure.

Lando Skiff, R5 and Imp Commander for me. Was a toss up between Imp Commander and A-Wing Pilot :wink:

Totally agree, great figure and sculpt and so much playability

I’m a sucker for a droid, so R5 is a given.
The sculpt on the general is too good to pass over so he’s in, and of course how can anyone resist a man in a cape! :wink:
He looks so cool that he’s probably on his way to the disco! :lol:
And last but not least is the Chief, for once this fearsom warrior teddy is a great figure.

Lando Skiff; one of (if not the) best figures made. He wears a disguise... he wears a freaking disguise...
R5; cool for a droid
Chirpa; starting to realise how much I like the 4 main Ewoks

R5, because of all the figures they could have made, they made one of a robot that broke down and was in the film for a few seconds - bizarre.

Cool droid though :)

even as Lando Calrissian (General Pilot) can't hold the weapon in his hand then I still think he is a cool figure and I love the cape for him. Sorry to see he does not do great :(
