829 people have voted in this poll as I post right now. Hasbro is being shown it and can monitor who is popular here.

Obviously, it's no longer premature to say they should probably make:

Yarna dal Gargon (w. Rappertunie)
Herme Odel
Sgt. Doallyn (w. Bubo)
and J'Quille

This would encompass our Top 6! But the marketing work is done and the percentages out of almost a sample size of 1000 look good - for all these characters actually - or one character in particular would have much more than 20% of the vote.

It's a clear indication that there is interest in all the choices offered - but especially the ones named above.

They want to make money is their bottom line.

These figures will make them money as the fans (you) have spoken and said you wanted these figures made the most!

Let's hope they've thought things through the same way we did. Afterall, we're the customer and the customer is always right!

There's a huge photo with all of the choices' pictures and names by their characters on the first post of the first page of this poll.

Yarna dal Gargan (Jabba's fat dancer) won, but there were 5 others who were really close:

Herme Odel
Bubo the frog-dog
J'Quille the Whipid
Rappertune (Max Rebo's frog)
Sgt. Doalyyn (tank-head guard)

I was surprised that Woof, a green Nikto originally released by Kenner as Klaatu, didn't do as well. He was a vintage figure they've never remade, and he should be done in the modern line. I suppose we have one Klaatu already in the skiff guards 3-pack, so as long as he gets done eventualy it's ok. I voted for J'Quille myself. I want a giant Whipid in my collection!

I sorta remember voting in this poll, but it's been so long that I haven't got a clue who I voted for. Darn short term memory.........What am I doing here again? Oh yes, it's time for my medication.

None of the names ring a bell.
The one you voted for should have an asterisk next to your choice (between the saber blade bar and the percentage). According to this poll's current results, I voted for Yarna.

Looking at our list that we polled for, we might want to pat ourselves on our backs and say we did some good.

I sent the results of this poll to Hasbro's attention on several occasions, mentioning it in person, last time at Comic Con.

Looks like 1/3 of them got produced:

1) Rappertunie
2) J'Quille
3) Tanus Spijek
4) Bubo

The Top 6 in our poll were:

1) Yarna dal Gargon
2) Herme Odel
3) BUBO
4) J'QUILLE
5) Sgt. Doallyn (tie) (tank head guard that is knocked aside as Boussh enters)
5) RAPPERTUNIE (tie) (Max Rebo Band)

#7 was BG-J38
#8 was Woof the Nikto (know as Klaatu in the vintage collection)
#9 was Umpuss Stay (from the Max Rebo Band, the Klatoonian)

#10 was TANUS SPIJEK the ELOM

#11 was Ak Rev (from the Max Rebo Band, the Weequay)
#12 was Shasha Teil (female Ishi Tibb from Jabba's Palace)


I think all of these figures merit making even though the poor Ishi Tibb only got 14 votes out of 831.

But these are the creame of the crop from Jabba's Palace. Only new skiff guards, or a re-release of the old ones, could compete with most of these.

This is the way to do Jabba's Palace. Hasbro has got a great start!

Wow! Hasbro has done really good about listening to collectors here!

This year they have made half of our top 6:

Bubo the frog dog (Jabba's Denizens)
J'Quille the Whipid
Shadda'Ub, the Rappertune

Amongst the other 3 were our top 2 most-wanted, and the Most-Wanted-Figure Thread Winner: Yarna dal Gargon, as well as another of the Top 50 contenders from all the 5 movies: Herme Odel.

Tanus Spijek from almost the bottom of our Top 12 list here rounds out Hasbro producing 1/3 of the figures we voted on back in the day when we ran this poll.

Obviously Yarna dal Gargon and Herme Odel will be the new Jabba the Hutt priorities, along with Sgt. Doallyn.

But overall, Hasbro is doing very well this year with Jabba's Palace in spite of this being the Resculpt Collection for the most part this OT year.


I just realized now that I'm repeating myself almost word-for-word from what I posted last October. But who the heck would know what they wrote last year? At least I am consistant.

4 of these characters got made. Possibly up to 6 will be made (total) by the end of 2007.

Ak-Rev is rumored about.

It's interesting that even back then, Yarna was the most sought-after. I didn't remember that myself.

Herme Odle was the next most-wanted, as well. And he's also rumored, but he'll cost Hasbro more than Ak-Rev, so I'm not holding my breath though I want Herme far more than I want Yarna. (Big alien sculpts rock - look at Ephant!)

The next 3 characters ranked in order WERE made: Bubo, Rappertune, and J'Quille.

Sgt. Doaylln looks like he should be coming up next. IIRC, he ranked on the Top 50 Most-Wanted produced by the Scene-By-Scene poll thread I did as well.

The Droid and Woof seem to also be next in terms of value to all here.

However, lower on the list (because Hasbro made him share a mold with J'Quille) the Elom got produced (and it's a nice figure if you ask me).

Looks like Umpass-Stay was more in demand than Ak-Rev, but they just re-released the Klatooninan Barada, so maybe they want to go with a Weequay if that rumor (Ak-Rev) is true.

Now the Ishi Tibb, Shasa Teil is in the poll quite honestly, because I wanted her (someday) - but not more than the others (I probably voted for Woof or Herme Odel - didn't look and don't remember).

Anyway, Hasbro is making some progress here several years after we tried to show them what we wanted. I think this clearly indicates that they resisted Yarna and laying out the costs for Herme Odel for sure though.

I personally gave the Hasbro guys this poll and printed them a copy of the full-color pictures of the characters we offered.

I voted for Yarna, and my reasoning is damned good even 6 years later. That said, like the Cantina thread, I cannot believe how many of these I've bought.

Rappertune (accidentally), Herme Odel, Ak-Rev, Yarna dal Gargan, and Umpass-Stay. I only passed on J'Quille and Tanus.

With the Jedi K'Kruhk's rising popularity in the EU, the Whipid has become VERY iconic to Star Wars for those who are following more of the material Star Wars has to offer.

K'Kruhk has appeared in everything from Jedi Council: Acts of War, through the Republic, Dark Times, and even Legacy Comics, as well as the Cartoon Network's Clone Wars cartoon. He might make an appearance in the new Clone Wars releases as well.

Thus I would not discount Whipids. They might be even longer living than Wookiees, too.

Now I don't have as much to say about the Elom.

I just must reiterrate that the Whipid figure should have been much larger in my opinion, though J'Quille has never been one of much significance.
