Forum Figure of the Year 2021 - Semi Final - Match 1

Post by Stuart Skinner »

As we get into the business end of this years Forum Figure of the Year we are left with four "good guys", first time we have ever seen this happen.

The first match up sees R2D2 take on Yoda. Should be a great head to head. Let's take a look at both figures;

R2D2
R2D2 is the only figure remaining that wasn't an Empire Strikes Back release, but the 2019 runner up will be remembering that run to the final as that year the Astromech beat Yoda in the Semi Finals 36-31.

R2 is on a mission this year though having beaten two former champions in the previous two rounds, he took out 2018 champion Biker Scout in the quarters and also the defending champion , Leia Boushh in the 3rd round.

YODA
Yoda is in his 6th semi final, that's quite an achievement in itself considering this is only the 8th competition. But still he has never won the contest. In fact he has only won one of those semi finals!

Let's just take a look at those semi final appearances for Yoda.

2014. Yoda 11 v 14 Imperial Stormtrooper (Hoth Battle Gear)
2015. Yoda 17 v 22 Boba Fett
2018. Yoda 21 v Jawa 20 v Biker Scout 28
2019. Yoda 31 v 36 R2D2
2020. Yoda 27 v 14 R5D4

Yoda has beaten some big hitters on the way to the final, including a dominant performance over the Hoth Stormie in round 3.

ROUTE TO THE SEMI FINALS
GROUP E
20 points. Jawa
18 points. Yoda
18 points. AT-AT Driver
16 points. IG-88
5 points. Logray
3 points. Warok

2nd ROUND
Stormtrooper 11 AT-AT Driver 11 Yoda 17

3rd ROUND
Imperial Stormtrooper (Hoth Battle Gear) 15 v 23 Yoda

They really are both great figures, but it has to be Yoda for me. Such a terrific little figure with so many accessories!

Luke Bespin and Yoda in the final would be pretty cool.

Straight forward victory for Yoda in the semi finals, for the second year running the little green munchkin will contest the final, hoping to do one better than last years efforts.
