    But then they moved it back to the centre of the ship for the Resurgent Class at least it isn't on a tower now

    A new First Order design showed up in the latest Poe Dameron comic


    The bridge tower section reminds me of the original prototype Star Destroyer model.

    FANS CHOICE FIGURE POLL TIME!


    (Click the pic)

    DISCLAIMER: As opposed to the last two polls where the winners became 6" Black Series figures, this poll is for a figure in the 3 3/4" super-articulated figures like the old days. This is because Hasbro announced at Celebration a few weeks back they'l be bringing back the Vintage Collection range from 2010-2012 where they made the 3 3/4" figures packaged on Kenner-inspired cardbacks.


    So this is why the poll finalists this time are plain old Palpatine (Hasbro hasn't really done a proper "super articulated" ROTJ vesion of him yet) and two random characters from ROTJ (they were part of the original vintage line and don't have true modern counterparts yet, and collectors want a full set of couterparts to the vintage figures, so...). I'm guessing Aphra will win due to current name recognition and popularity, but who knows at this point.

    Also, apparently Ben Skywalker (Luke and Mara's child in Legends continuity) was a big "ballot stuffer" character by the people they say got Jania Solo to win last year, but he didn't make it. Don't really mind, I would've wanted Anakin Solo to complete the original Solo children in 3 3/4" scale.

    Aphra is winning right now, beating Ahsoka by 4%.

    I voted for Aphra.

    Saw this on reddit. Natalie Portman drawn as Padme actually appeared in the Comic version of 'The Last Command' a year before Episode 1 released. Her casting was known by then, so it isn't a coincidence.
