I'm starting to work on the evening update (coming soon) and it looks like for the first time I have bad news for the Silver Dwarf.

Please help turn it around!

Pixxus is now in third spot?!?!?? Carpathias on his way out of the six?!?! This unregulated voting system looks like it has been abused.

I would be interested to see exactly how many orders are placed for each character. You would reasonably expect that a standard skele would get a load of orders. No matter what figures I order, I'll throw in 2 standard skeletons if they are available. Pixxus though? He's not a legion builder. This could come back to bite the 4H - committing to manufacture a bunch of figures that very few people actually want.

Why not just take pre orders for 6 and whichever get the most orders get made
If you look real close,you can see my avatar is laughing at you.

The voting system isn't being abused, it is just that in the initial days people voted for their favorites of 48 figures. Now people can see who is winning, who is close, and only voting among those. The result is very different results.

This is why in political elections the news don't report exit polls until after the polls close.

I've thought the very same thing.
Certainly that method could be abused as well but not likely to the degree this voting method might be.

Because if I preordered the six I voted for then only 2 i voted on would be made, and 4 preorders would be canceled. That would piss people off.

There have been 130 new voters since the last update.


Pixxus has gained 73 votes and moved back up to 3rd, and Carpathias is now on the chopping block in 6th. He is currently 20 votes ahead of the Skeleton Legion Builder who gained 71 votes and is now in 7th.

Now for the Devestating news. Out of 130 new votes, only 10 where for the Silver Dwarf... :?

For the first time, I have bad news. The Silver Dwarf has moved down one spot in the polls, from 17th to 18th. I'm devestated... he didn't even meet the goal of 400 votes, and currently sits at 399. :cry: :cry:

It's not to late to turn it around! He is only 6 votes behind 17th!

I may just sit out this all-star order. Only figures I wanted was the standard skeleton LB. I probably would have picked up a couple other figures to go with the skeletons, but there aren't any others that I want enough to order by themselves.

It's magecraft. Jorund has you all in a reality marble which is causing some of the more susceptible voters to question their sanity, and yes, become a little paranoid. The next time you look at the poll you may see Jorund and Silver Dwarf occupying the top two spots and Vorgus trailing Orn.
I can also attest that Pixxus is indeed a legion builder, he's just a more expensive legion builder. Because he's beautiful, comes with two heads ( including articulated jaw ) and a snazzy gold shield.

Oof!! Carpathias is by far my most wanted figure. I'll be sad if he doesn't make the cut but at least things look good for him being on top in All Stars 3...

I encourage people to vote for characters with alternate heads... That way we can potentially get 12 characters from 6 figures. This includes Jorund and his alternate "blue dwarf" head.

Or better yet, revert back to the original plan and put them all up for pre-order (minus the last all-star wave and covenant of shadow) and all that meet the minimum sales requirements get made. I bet most of the legion builders would be the top sellers.

The way it stands now with this weak 6 figure allotment, and each successive wave being added to the fold, So many great figures from the 1st KS will never stand a chance at a reissue.

Precisely why I want urzokk so bad. My orc legions are in need of an alternate look. Unfortunately for Jorund that bucket helm secondary head looks ludicrous on a dwarf body, Why o why didn't they include one of the other dwarven heads??? They did the same thing with King Bromdenn ironjaw, another knight helm on a dwarf.

This! 1,000,000,000 times this!

Frankly, if there were minimum order requirements, I'd think people would be influenced to order even more, just to insure their favorites got made. I know I would. I'd order an extra 6 Skeleton Legion Builders, in the hopes that it helps get that figure made, rather than lose out on my chance at ordering any at all. The vote itself does not incourage sales. A minimum pre-order requirement does.

If each new all star vote includes all previosuly released figures, then next years potential vote will have at least 95 figures competing for a few slots at bieng re-issued. That's a lot of losers, virtually the entire fan base will lose. A lot of the fan base is already losing during this vote as it stands.

That 95 number includes the 45 figures in this vote, the 7 figures from Colliseum wave, and 43 from the Kickstarter 2.0. It doesn't include weapons packs, Trolls/Cyclops, the Ogre scaled figures, or anything else released before then, which could potentially increase that number.

Something will have to change.
