Forum Figure of the Year 2020 - Group I

Post by Stuart Skinner »

From the outset, Group I looks to be a battle between two Star Wars releases, Chewbacca and Luke X-Wing, both second round exits in 2014, they then both reached the quarter finals in 2015 before being eliminated again at the same round. 2016 saw Chewie fail to clear the group stages, whilst Luke X-Wing didn't go much better getting beaten in the second phase. 2017 Chewbacca again missed out on clearing the group stages, whilst Luke X-Wing again failed at the second stage. 2018? Yep you guessed it, group stage elimination for Chewbacca and second round for Luke, certainly a pattern emerging. 2019 though saw Chewbacca clear his group only to be beaten by Greedo in the second round, Luke matched his best performance though reaching the quarter final where he was narrowly beaten by two votes against Yoda.

Why are these two Group I's favourites? well Prune Face, Rebel Commander and Anakin have never cleared the group stage and 2-1B has on just one occasion, saying that this could be an opportunity for sure for one of these figures to progress.

Please choose your THREE favourites

Top TWO will progress

2-1B and Rebel Commander were always heavily played with as a kid.. far more than the more obvious Chewbacca. Luke was the go to X-wing pilot, so by default became a much used, if not loved figure.
Older eyes though are oddly ever more appreciative of Anakin; for me it's one of the better sculpts in the range, with a very good portrayal of Sebastian Shaw and the fabric hangs well too. Poor on play value though...

Luke X-wing gets a solid group victory but the runners up spot surprisingly went to 2-1B who picked up 28 votes :o seeing off the stunning Chewbacca by 2 votes
