Forum Figure of the Year 2021 - Group D

Post by Stuart Skinner »

The final opening day group sees the first ever champion, Stormtrooper, who took the title in 2014. A Semi final and a quarter final have been the best they have mustered since, but at the same time only once have failed to not get past this opening stage.

And it's not an easy group for the Stormie, Luke Skywalker, a figure who surprisingly has failed to win the trophy will be gunning to qualify. Luke lost the final to Emperor's Royal Guard by five votes in 2016 and has never really recovered. He has made two quarter finals outside that final including 2020 when it looked like he was finally going to break his duck until Yoda battered him like a Mars Bar in the quarters.

TIE Pilot is another figure which often does well in the early rounds, a two time semi finalist and two time quarter finalist gives him fine pedigree in the comp, but last year was the first year he has failed at the group stage as he finished third behind R5D4 and Greedo.

Walrus Man begins his campaign in Group D too but he has never cleared the group stage, how can that be for old bum face, @ScruffyLookingNH also has a bum face and he gets loving... I think... Well I hope... well kind of.

Making the group up is Bib Fortuna who has cleared this stage just once, Chief Chirpa again just a one time group success and Teebo, who never has had the success.

A tough group for sure.

PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR THREE FAVOURITE FIGURES

I love ‘ol Bum Face but he’s been drawn in a group with the Stormie, Luke and my favourite and epitome of cool, the TFP.

Incredibly like his father, Luke Skywalker falls at the first hurdle as 2014 champion Stormtrooper destroyed the opposition to win the group. TIE Pilot is the one that pips Luke to runners up spot.

Again the Ewoks fail to get any love as Teebo and Chirpa score 7 votes between them.
