Another round of Most Requested is over. The selected reader requests were placed in a head-to-head vote and with nearly 2000 votes cast, the finalists going on to December have been decided. Which requests fell on deaf ears? Which requests will join our Round One winners? It’s time to find out.
Before we reveal the winners, let’s take a look at where the runners-up fell:
|Twelfth Place||Eleventh Place||Tenth Place|
|Ninth Place||Eighth Place|
|Seventh Place||Sixth Place||Fifth Place|
As always, we’re never quite sure how our readers are going to vote and continually get surprised by the results. There are some of these that we thought would do better while others we didn’t think would be nearly as high as they ended up. This may be the last we see of most of these requests, but it may not be over for Happy Hogan. There’s some debate around the IAT Offices as to whether or not we should disqualify Panthor from Round One. He hasn’t been ‘officially’ announced, but Toy Guru had made it all but clear that he will be released in 2011. If we do decide to remove Panthor from the running, Happy Hogan is our official first alternate for the Final Round this December.
And the Four Semi-Finalists Are…
|Fourth Place||Third Place||Second Place|
The results this year ended up in pretty tight clusters with just a handful of votes separating winners from losers in some cases. The tightest vote turned out to be for the fourth spot. Just three votes made the difference between Gangbuster being in and Happy Hogan being out. But both of those guys were light years behind the top three which were never in question since day one, often switching places throughout the competition. But in the key closing hours, the Freedom Fighters made a push for some separation from the pack and took the top spot. Once DCUC has the Doom Patrol and Metal Men wrapped up, it seems fans are more than ready for Mattel to choose the Freedom Fighters as the next DC team to get figure treatment. I’m curious though, if we had a Freedom Fighter run-off, who would win? An easy poll for Uncle Sam or could one of the other characters knock him off?
