Forum Figure of the Year 2021 : Group C

Group C sees 2015 champion Boba Fett begin his campaign, and he'll be hoping for a belter after featuring prominently in The Mandalorian. his victory in 2015 is a long time ago now, a semi final appearance in 2017 is his next best effort, and he has only failed to clear the group stages on two occasions, 2016 when he was defending his title and 2019. He's currently the fourth most successful figure in this competition so you'd expect him to deliver the goods again sooner rather than later.

But Fett will be up against two 12 back figures, which on it's own is never an easy feat, Darth Vader will no doubt be a challenging opponent, although the Sith Lord has been disappointing in recent years, seeing him fall in both 2019 and 2020 at this stage. the two semi final appearances in 2014 and 2016 seem a long time ago now.

Tusken Raider will also be a tough opponent, although the quarter finals in 2017 is his best to date, Tusken went to the third round in 2020 but lost by two votes to Biker Scout. He'll be hoping to challenge again if he can come out this tough group.

R2D2 Sensorscope won't ease the pressure either, the small astromech will of course gain votes, but whom will he be taking them off, will he qualify from the group, well it will be tough, of the three R2 units in this competition he is the worst performer of the three if you check the history books.

Making up the group is another cuddly being in Wicket, but 2019 is his only group stage success but this is better than the last two figures making up the numbers in the group, both Bespin Guard (Black0 and Droopy McCool have never come close to clearing this stage.

PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR THREE FAVOURITE FIGURES

Groups don't get much tighter than this with three figures finishing on the same score.

Boba Fett, R2 Sensorscope and Tusken will all progress, flip of the coin will see which figure goes through as group winner whilst the other two will face off against a third figure in the knockouts.

Vader falls at this opening stage finishing just one vote back from these three, whilst poor old Droopy doesn't get a single vote.


QUALIFIERS
Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)
Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight)
Ben 'Obi-Wan' Kenobi
Squid Head
Boba Fett
R2D2 with Sensorscope
Sand People (Tusken Raider)
