It's probably been stated somewhere before, but can someone tell me when exactly we're going to find out which characters Mattel picked for the Fan Choice? I hope they don't wait until SDCC/the subscriptions go up for sale. We need time to win other people over to our side in case they pick something good. :lol:
This Fan Choice vote is to give a fan-wanted character that might not otherwise get made a "free pass" into being made. It's been pegged as the most desired of the obscure, type of vote. Scorpia, Octavia and characters that had multipe action figures and/or stactions and statues don't really fit the bill for the vote.
I really hope Mattel honours what they said the vote was: obscure characters they know the fans really want, but management wouldn't be excited for and/or might not allow to be made.
I think they might wait to announce the choices until the subs are for sale, hoping they might sell to a few "on the fence" people that way. I'd love to see the choices ahead of time, of course. Because I'm impatient, and I want to know! :mmlol:

I'm leaning very heavily to finally getting a sub, just to be able to vote for Illumina (mostly because I feel Val & Emiliano deserve it for all they've done for MOTU) since I believe this is her one and only chance to get made & if she doesn't win, Mattel will never make a figure of her. Hopefully TG will put his money where his mouth is and vote for her too with his subscription since he said this whole poll was for her anyways...
One thing that will definitely keep me from getting a sub in order to vote is if Mattel stacks the deck with an obvious non-obscure character. We shall all wait and see.........:hmshift:
