    (and Illumina, definitely wasn't)
    Well that's why I am asking Illumina supporters WHO would be fair?

    Is this an obscure "ice cream maker poll" or a who do you want in your 2013 sub poll? Like DCUC I'm taking it as who do you want to come out first.

    Enlighten me. I'm bitter about Sunder's final ranking. Veeeery bitter. And beginning to stare sideways at Illumina fans, and their non-canon character.

    That's right, I said it.

    Well you must be the bravest there is in all the land!

    I guess it's possible Mattel would include characters from either the Org poll or the German poll - so we could be seeing Hawke, Huntara and the Crimson Fury again!
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - Spinnerella - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Mermista Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina

    If Mattel picks Crimson Fury to put on the poll, I will be very surprised! I hope it wouldn't be his only chance to get made, though...

    The Yellow Warrior from the tug of war is way more akin to Willrow Hood.
    I can't think of a good Illumina comparison to Star Wars. Maybe one of the bounty hunters from the lineup in Empire.

    Would Mon Mothma be a good example?

    I hope they put the Ice cream maker part in her bio! She should come with ice cream like Wun-Dar came with bread.

    I'm glad Illumina won, but disappointed with how low Scollos and Skelcons are, they were my top two choices, but am glad Scrollos at least managed to just slip above Strobo. Really glad Crimson Fury is so high as well but wish Hawke had got the number two spot, I'd much prefer a figure of her then Huntara.
    I think the best way to do the demons would be in a two pack and I hope we get their mini forms with them as well seeing as they don't have any accessory's.

    Plus go Crimson Fury! What a great day for comic characters!

    Well done to Illumina and everyone who supported her.

    I hope she gets made as well as most of the other figures on the list - the top5 at least.

    I for one want to thank everyone who made the poll , and Mattel for at least giving us the Illusion of free choice.

    We will have to wait to see how this plays out.

    As an Illumina Supporter , I am very excited. I know some of you are disappointed with how your choice fared. I just hope that Mattel will take this list and try to make them all , so everyone can get what they want.

    Ditto, If the 2013 line up is purely this lot.....Count me out!

    If its a seperate '30th Style' sub then cool...I wont get it, but good for those who want C listers!

    Dear Mattel, Please remember you are one of the biggest toy companies on the planet, So hows about making toys people want and NOT Excuses.

    And if it doesn't get made, the inevitable "Conspiracy against the site" threads...

    I'd hate to see this section of the forum full of that kind of stuff...
    Now go back under the bridge!
    Thanks!!
    Have you ever even been to any other threads on this site?

    Plenty of characters have support threads. Lots of people aren't thrilled about how different aspects of their favorite figure turned out, and voice it here. And considering Illumina was the only character created by the head honchos here at He-Man.org, I doubt there will be a ton of "conspiracy against the site" threads.
    Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

    She'd be closest, methinks, to one of the Expanded Universe characters from Star Wars, like the Jedi Quinlan Voss (I think that's him) who was only in the comics until a recent appearance in the Clone Wars show. Hasbro has made loads of those characters over the years, so there's your precedent for someone like Illumina in the MOTUC line.

    I agree with you yet once again, Crusader. Allthough I thought the MoP Orcs would actually be ending lower. I'm in fact excited to see that they still got quite some votes. I tell you my friend, one day, will be cracking a bottle while opening the mailer boxes containing the MoP Orcs two pack!

    A list to choose from again. Didn't think this was that easy, did you? I hurt because I want both Illumina and Geldor. Actually the only figures I actually don't want from the list was the Warrior in Yellow and Camo Kahn, but those two semi-finalists are at the top of my want list so I'm going to lose out no matter what the final vote is.

    She's Aura Singh.

    May she likewise get a figure soon.

    I like that.
    Aurra Sing was from the later Prequel movies, Illumina was from the later 200x.
    Aurra Sing only had a brief appearance in the Prequels, Illumina only had a brief appearance in the 200x comic.
    Both were liked for their visuals, both are females, and both peaked interest from creators (the 4H like Illumina) and fans and was expanded upon later.

    Illumina is just lacking in the expanded upon area in terms of being included in new MOTU material. But still, a good comparison. Nice one, gbagok!

    The Illumina - Aura Singh connection is a good one: very brief appearances (blink and you miss them), cool designs, and fervent followings.
