BEFORE YOU VOTE: Please see this picture of all the Senators with their names!

There are certainly a lot of background characters available as choices for action figures from the Star Wars films' rich and diverse settings. Without a doubt, the Galactic Senate is one of them.

Originally this poll had more than 14 great choices. But to simplify things, the Separatists decided they didn't want to be included at this time, and there are strong rumors that point towards Bail Organa seeing production in 2003.

With that said, here are some of the most interesting choices for key figures from the Old Republic.

Which one do you want as an action figure the most?

Going to have to go with the lovely, Sly Moore. Sure she's going to end up being little more then a statue, due to her feathered cloak thing. But she's an intresting looking charecter, and Star Wars suffers from a lack of female figures. :)

If I had a second vote though, it would probably be for Senator Yarua. Frankly he should have gotten a figure by now anyway. He was featured on the POTF2 Flashback cards, and all those figures were made into figures. So where is Yarua? :)

Edit: Wanted to stick up a decent picture of the lovely Sly Moore. After seeing what a nice job they did on the feathered look of Padme's Black Travel Gown, I would love to see Sly Moore made. :)

Weeeell, I don't know JJB. Sly and the Family Moore doesn't count much as a female figure in my book. As I said in another forum, she's exactly like Sinead O'Connor with a Vitamin D deficiency and we know too well how the wailing one seems to qualify more for androgeny. :)

I voted for the gentlewookie from Kashyyyk. I believe he has a bigger potential at being a better looking senatorial figure than all the potential 'saltshaker' choices. Plus this will be a good chance for Hasbro/WOTC to redeem themselves from the Wrrrorrr (however you spell his name) gaffe.

I dunno about Sinead O' Conner, she looks more like the female Centobite without her neck cut open. Same pale blueish white skin with dark around the eyes. Plus the official site lists Moore as a female. :)

I would like to see them all made. I would to see them in 3 packs and also at a reasonable price. I don't want more cinema scenes. Also ot about a box of droid parts where you could make 5 or ten droids from r2 and r5 units to imperial units. Also don't for get the ET Senate figures with spark-o-matic action to make their fingers glow ( reeses pieces optional ).

Yarua gets my vote. Hands down. We need more Wookies. And the next time they have this poll, ET better be there! I would love to see an ET on a Star Wars card.

At least Yarua WOULD get my vote if I COULD vote. But I am STILL getting the "invalid session" error message.

ISE has come home...and he is angry!

LUCASFILM DOES NOT OWN THE COPYRIGHT FOR E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial!

It will not happen folks. It was allowed because Steven Spielberg is George Lucas' best friend, and it was an appreciative sort of inside joke between them. Spielberg isn't going to make any money off it, so there will not be E.T. figures in anything LFL authorized.

In the meantime, use the key chains with the chains removed or go to Universal Studio theme parks and buy yourself the E.T.'s at the appropriate size.

Kraft Macaroni and Cheese did some kind of E.T. that size also.

I don't have any, want them myself, but will eventually go to Universal Studios to get them.

If anyone can order them through some Universal Studio website, please post the link in here.

Otherwise, forget about it. E.T. would be great, but it's never happening!

After much deliberation between da wook, Sly, & Seria, I went for Yarua.

Incidentally - <shameless plug>Skin'ead O'Connor has currently got a new album out, which for some reason has been listed in the "world music" sections of most record stores</shameless plug>.

Yeah, there is more chance that we would get the Tonnika Sisters, then Hasbro being allowed to do a E.T. Senator figure. Like Tycho stated, there are alternatives to waiting for somthing that is never going to happen. Besides, the E.T. toy line is currently being done by TRU, so I don't see them letting Hasbro snag E.T. for this. :)

I voted for Sly. Of all the character's listed, this one has the most screen time, and is neccessary for diorama purposes, as we already have Palpy and Amedda.

Hmmmmm, I would have voted for Onaconda Farr the Rodian senator instead of the other one. Or even an Ister Paddie and Ronet Coorr 2-pack. Lexi Dio is pretty hot as senators go. Then there's the issue of you having Po Nudo listed when Po Nudo is actually a seperatist according to the official publications surrounding the release of AOTC. I'd like to see Sei Taria and Sly Moore and a new Mas Amedda with tongue action. Senator Amidala would be cool as long she was accompanied by Dorme in that purple cloak. Aks Aak or Aks Moe would be pretty cool The pic of Eidley Teem is what used to be known as Aks Moe I believe. Horox Ryyder would be my final choice though. Watto's box seats cinema scene gave us the hard to find Graxol Kelvyyn who was impossibly tall and way overscaled. Using the arms and head of that figure and making a new body that was about a third shorter would give us a correct scale Horox Ryyder carded. The head and the hands of the Graxol figure are really nice and it's a shame that so many people had a hard time finding him. So my vote goes to a rescaled resculpt of Graxol as Horox instead.

I thought of that. The scale is totally off, since the Farscape figures are 6" tall. Besides, she's a weird looking hot chick. How could anyone not want her. :)

Your vote has been added by hand. As for the "invalid session" thing, I still think it's a cookie problem on your end since people who aren't logged in users can vote but you can't. Anyway, should be addressed in the upcoming software update.


As for my own vote, I didn't bother because I wouldn't buy any of 'em.

Po Nudo, Aqualish Senator from Ando gets my vote, just too darn cool looking, although Sly is a close second

I don't know.

Here's the bigger question:

Did the Separatists continue to send their Senate delegations to Coruscant after declaring themselves 'out of the Republic?'

It would be a good way to maintain a voice in the Republic's policy without paying the taxes: so long as the Senate said they could not seceede (did the Senate ever say this?), then they should have a representative there.

So that begs another question about the Separatist leadership:

Did the Trade Federation still have Lott Dodd on Coruscant in E2?

Did Mon Calamari still have Senator Tikkes (the Quarren) there?

Did the Banking Clan still have a representative?

Did Shu Mai have a delegate from the Commerce Guild there?

Did Passal Argente have someone representing his system's interests?


That would explain Po Nudo's appearance in the Senate IF he was a Separatist. Ando would still want him there to monitor the situation in the Republic. But Nudo did seem to want to speak and vote. If the Aqualish seceeded, they wouldn't get a vote, right?

We're talking about Palpatine manipulating the rules here, too. So a lot of things are possible.

Po Nudo was not on Geonosis though. That is for sure.

I voted Yarua also. Mostly because of the same Wookie fetish as most others here ... though I'll say that the whole idea of senator figures is pretty attractive to me. Such an odd idea for a toy if you think about it ... alien senators. Imagine a bunch of six year olds sitting around roll playing with these toys ... how creepy.
