Here are the results from the final ranking of the top 30 characters from the 2018 character poll, plus the second tier 30 (places 31 thru 60), and a link to vote on ROUND 2 of the oversized items poll.
This year's poll was interesting. Once we got past position 31, the number of votes between positions got closer and closer. In fact, from 32 all the way to up to about position 132, popularity was fairly close. How will this play into next year's 2019 poll remains to be seen. Will certain characters pull ahead from the pack as the new front-runners? Or are we at a point where we start having similar popularity between numerous contenders for this amazing line that has run for nearly 10 years? We will find out then!
But for now, let's look at this year's results. We have to consider that this poll combines both Club Grayskull (Filmation) and Collector's Choice. That means we have to dip into the second stringers to flesh out the CG and CC lists.
One thing that happened this time was that no New Adventure character ended up in the Top 60, BUT they still fell in positions right outside of of that list. When talking on the Org forums about the preliminary results, some fans were concerned that having a toy version of a NA character and a Jetlag cartoon version of the same character was serving to "split the vote." We found no evidence that this actually happened in any notable way. Still, we are offering a secondary list for hypothetical discussion that shows the ranking when combining all the unique votes between a toy and cartoon version of a single NA character. And since the rankings are so close from 31 thru 132, this means that the combined vote would push the character up the ranking. Of course, we could say the same for any character in the poll that has multiple variants. Regardless, the combined results are interesting to see. But for any concerned NA fan, don't forget that 2019 is the 30th anniversary of New Adventures! That might mean good things for NA figures.
ALSO, there will be one more poll after the oversized items poll and the Accessories polls. This poll let's you pick which characters released thus far in MOTUC you'd like to see in Super7's upcoming retro-styled 5" action figure line. You won't want to miss that!
