Well it's finally here, the grand final for the Forum Figure of the Year for 2021. And what a belter we have in store, it's the Dagobah head to head as Luke Bespin takes on Yoda!

Luke Bespin has gone from an early round competitor in the early years to being a main contender, having won the contest in 2019 he finds himself back in the final just two years later.

Luke Bespin Previous Form
2014 - 3rd Round
2015 - Group Stage
2016 - 2nd Round
2017 - Quarter Final
2018 - Group Stage
2019 - CHAMPION
2020 - 3rd Round


As for Yoda he has constantly been a threat latter rounds, only one group stage elimination, but six semi finals and this is his second final in a row! This year he'll be hoping to go one better than 2020 and finally win this title which has constantly eluded him.

Yoda Previous Form
2014 - Semi Final
2015 - Semi Final
2016 - Group Stage
2017 - 2nd Round
2018 - Semi Final
2019 - Semi Final
2020 - Runner Up


By all accounts, on paper this should be an extremely close run final.


This year, both have had some challenges to get to the final, and some real close encounters. Yoda only finished runner up in his group and was tied second, literally scrapping through, and Luke Bespin winning his semi final by a single vote was a close as it could be.

I don't really mind which one wins, since these are my two favourite figures from the entire line. However I have to choose one, and on this occasion Yoda wins my vote :-)

Yoda has my vote but...I may have been swayed with the blonde haired Bespin Luke

Would a brown snake Yoda or Blonde haired Luke change yours?

Thanks for the time and effort putting this fine event together.

Oh man the wait is over! Luke for me could have gone either way. Looks like Yoda will take the title.

Been with Yoda throughout so I'm sticking with him. I mean he's got his own snake! Can't get much cooler than that.
