Forum Figure of the Year 2019 - Round 2 - Match 1

Post by Stuart Skinner »

JAWA v PRINCESS LEIA ORGANA (HOTH OUTFIT)

First second round match starts with the three time semi-finalist Jawa who topped the tough Group O in the first round by 6 votes. His opponent in the first knockout stage is the beautiful Princess Leia Hoth, who for the second year running has reached the second round, however she has yet to win a knockout match and this contest certainly looks tough on paper for the Princess, she did see off Dengar and Lando on reaching the second round.

LET THE VOTING BEGIN

PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR FAVOURITE

VOTING CLOSES WEDNESDAY 16th JANUARY AT 3.55pm

Genuinely tough call for me as I love both figures. On balance though, this time my vote goes to the princess.

Jawa gets my vote!
I do like the face sculpt on that Leia, but the Jawa figure is brilliant!

I’m surprised by the voting so far!
I expected Leia to be well out in front, but maybe this is the year for the Jawa?

Really? I expect the Jawa to win but an extremely comfortable margin

Leia always seems go be popular and I like most Hoth figures, hence the thought that she would beat the Jawa.
Let the people decide! :D but by the looks of it you will probably be right!

I wish I liked Leia Hoth as both cardbacks are great, but the figure is so ugly!

Only Imperial figures win this competition. Cos, you know, 90% of the Star Wars community love a man in uniform or are Imperial fan boys. Only time one didn't win was when the original Leia won - and Carrie had to die to make that happen and she's the only one that could. She can't die again. Kenny Baker tried, but R2 got nowhere.

:lol: it's the face/neck! Doesn't do poor Carrie justice. Actually I do recall seeing a 'pretty face' variant somewhere which was an improvement.

She looks beautiful on the card Back, but ugly as a figure sculpt. Only one winner. Utini!
