Forum Figure of the Year 2021 - Group M

Post by Stuart Skinner »

In the grand scheme of things, Group M isn't a particular strong line up when looking at the history of these figures in this competition.

Barada and Luke Poncho have never cleared the group stage, in fact when you look back they've never even challenged to clear this stage.

Lando and Weequay don't fair much better, just one appearance in the knockouts is all they have. You have to go right back to 2015 to find the only time Lando cleared the group stage and it's not much better for Weequay as his one sole performance in the knockouts was 2016.

So that leaves two figures with any kind of pedigree. Han Bespin, who has cleared the groups on four occasions, however has only once then cleared the second round where he was beaten soundly by Darth Vader and that was way back in 2015.

R5-D4 is the one figure who has gone far, two semi finals appearances and that includes 2020 where it was finally well beaten by Yoda.

Lando and R5 for sure. Been loving collecting Lando this year. Also Weequay, great fantastically detailed sculpt.

Say no to Han Bespin - the most massively over-rated figure in the whole line and one of my least favourite. :lol:

A convincing performance sees R5 sail with ease into the knockouts. Even Lando strolls into the second round in runners up spot.
