Forum Figure of the Year 2020 : Group A

Post by Stuart Skinner »

Here it is, the opening group for the Forum Figure of 2020, in six previous tournaments we have never seen a figure take the title twice. On two occasions have we seen a first 12 figure win, but ROTJ figures have matched that result by also taking the title with two figures, whilst the defending champion, Luke Bespin, is the only ESB figure winner and Fett completes the former champions.

Group A, although not containing any former champions or runners up, looks a fierce group to open the proceedings. Two former semi finalists in TIE Pilot and R5D4 make the group interesting from the off, in fact the TIE Pilot has been to the latter stages on numerous occasions and is clearly a popular forum figure. The two could progress but will have to see off some other stunning figures including the wonderful Greedo and Han Hoth with his working holster. Although Ugnaught and Teebo have never progressed beyond the group stages the same can't be said for the first last 17 sighting with R2 Pop Up looking to get involved. A tight group for sure.

Please select your THREE favourites.

The top two will progress to the knockout stages.

The voting for this group will finish at 1940 on Saturday 4th January.

The next three groups will be listed tomorrow.

Greedo and TFP for sure. Then it was a toss up between Han Hoth and R5. I went HH on this occasion.

r5 r2 and Teebo for me . Oddly Teebo was1 of my favourates as a kid aong with the imperial dignitary :o
I met him in a swamp down in Dagoba
Where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda
S-O-D-A, soda

I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said "yoda"
Y-O-D-A, Yoda
yo yo yo yoda

Group A finishes and the shock of this round will be the elimination of the TIE Pilot in this opening round. A figure that has always performed and more so has never failed to clear the group stages. Twice semi finalist in 2017 and 2018, Quarter finalist in 2014 and 2016 and 3rd round in 2015 and 2019 see his elimination as a shock.

R5D4, who has reached the semi finals before, wins comfortably, but the little red droid has also exited during the group stages. Greedo has also been hit and miss and just pips the TIE Pilot to the runners up spot by a single vote.

Han Hoth will be disappointed with his performance, and as expected Ugnaught, Teebo and R2 Pop Up just made up the numbers in this opening group.
