Forum Figure of the Year - Round 2 - Match 7

Post by Stuart Skinner »

Match 7 sees the first of our four remaining former champions as 2016 Champ ERG takes to the arena to battle the Hoth Rebel Solider.

Emperor's Royal Guard doesn't have a great history apart from his incredible victory in 2016 and he will be looking to rediscover the magic ingredient that took him all the way this year. He topped a group which included popular figures Luke X-Wing, Hammered and Death Squad Commander so he certainly looked sharp in the group stage.

Hoth rebel Soldier makes the second round for only the second time after coming runner up in the opening group behind Death Star Droid, but it was a case of only just as four figures behind him another day could have easily pipped him to the post. He's going to have to be flying to win this match up though.

LET THE VOTING BEGIN

PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR FAVOURITE

VOTING CLOSES ON SATURDAY 19th AT 8.25pm

This will be another close one, but for me it has to be ERG.

Love the HRS but the ERG is one of the iconic figures from the ROTJ line. Just nicks it for me

ERG is such a badass. He gets my vote. If I won Euromillions I’d have a couple of bodyguards dressed as ERGs accompany me when ever I went outside.

I've got a soft spot for the Hoth Rebel Soldier, since he came out in the first wave of Empire figures (and a lot earlier than the Luke Hoth figure did) and had to deputise for Luke in my childhood recreations of the Hoth battles :-D

I was a little surprised early on but there’s no contest here for me. The ERG is the nuts!

Would you wear a big black robe and shuffle along like the Emperor? :P

Here, here!

Imagine these guys going head to head...like Indiana Jones and the Cairo swordsman...
HRS: Come at me, bro!
ERG: *runs towards HRS...with a stick
HRS: BANG!
ERG: *dead

I rest my case.

That’s all ok, but the ERG would still look cool! 8)
