Today starts off Yak's Top Ten 2018: The Black Series: The Phantom Menace
Rules:
    Pick up to 10 figures you’d like to see done in 6” The Black Series scale.
      If submissions have more than ten entries, only the first ten will be considered!
      Do not list multipacks as a single entry
      Only one vote per character
    All figures are eligible, whether it’s a new figure, a repaint, re-issue, deluxe, etc.
    Feel free to add descriptions to any of your choices, such as pack-ins.

Have fun!

1- Battle Droid
2- Destroyer Droid
3- Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan)
4- Padme Amidala (Theed Battle)
5- Jar Jar Binks (Yes, really. Preferably with weapons from the final battle)
6- Anakin Skywalker (maybe with pack-in podracer helmet)
7- Nute Gunray
8- Captain Panaka
9- Captain Tarpals
10- Darth Maul (reissue in archive series)
I kinda feel bad "wasting" one of my votes on an already released figure, but Maul is absolutely vital to a Phantom Menace display and when he came out I think a lot of people (myself included) hadn't fully committed to the new scale and passed on him. The sheer number of bootlegs available and the authentic ones selling for import figure prices show there's demand.

I totally understand this vote, especially for those fans that didn't join in right away. Once Return of the Jedi rolls around, I'm definitely putting in a vote for Carbonite Block Han. I never got that one (sold out) and I refuse to shell out $200+ for just the block (I have Fett).

Last day to get those votes in!

RE: updating Jedi. I agree, I think almost everyone on the council needs an update. Some have already been done, but I suppose with the new photo-realistic technique Hasbro has, they could re-do them (as some fans have submitted here or on the front page).
