Forum Figure of the Year 2021 - 2nd Rd - Match 14

Post by Stuart Skinner »

The final former champion steps up to the plate as Princess Leia Organa takes on Han Hoth.

Princess Leia was victorious in 2017, just weeks after the passing of Carrie Fisher. The three previous years had seen a 3rd round exit in 2014, group stage in 2015 and a third round elimination in 2016, but it was no surprise when she was victorious in 2017 with emotions towards the Princess running high. Beating Biker Scout, Jawa, TIE Pilot, Leia Boushh and Chewbacca on route, she took out many big hitters. I think it was always going to be interesting to see how she would do when she came to defend her title though in 2018 as before her victory she never threatened to win the title, and true to form she was back to a third round elimination as she lost out to Yoda by 9 votes. In 2019 she was back in the quarter finals as she looked to threaten again, but she took a thumping losing 45-19 to eventual winner Luke Bespin. 2020 was her darkest hour as she finished third in her group and failing to reach the knockouts for the first time since 2015. She's got a tough match up here that's for sure.

Han Hoth, to me, as always fallen short of where I expect to him be. This is only the third time he has cleared the groups. Yes in 2016 he reached the quarters where he lost to Hoth Stormie, but he hasn't been at this stage since 2018 when he lost at this stage to Greedo.

So a battle on paper that looks a good match up, but it will need Han Hoth to step up like he hasn't really done so before.

I like both but Han Hoth gets my vote today. Lots of cool variants... so many different pairs of coloured trousers

This is a hard choice - Han Hoth was the Han I had as a kid, but I always wanted a Leia and never had her. Leia got my vote in the end :)
You weren't on any mercy mission this time, Your Highness.
