Thanks for coming back for the second round. The three finalists were chosen by blind vote but I have an open vote this round.
HOWEVER I am still experimenting with the new options open to me now that the forum has been upgraded.
So while this round is open you will have the opportunity to retract your vote and resubmit it if you wish to change your decision up to the closing of the vote. Once it closes on the 29th of April at 16.00 GMT then all votes are locked (logically).
So I suggest all members vote for their favourite now and then check back near the end of the vote and see if they wish to support something else.
It's very interesting to have a look at the results of the 'blind vote' ... to me it seems to be much more different than all the open votes before ... closer, so to say Yes, Wendy, have a good time ...
yes interesting the blind vote... but seems not very much members have voted, wasn't there months with over 50-60 votes?
And more interesting were the first round winners!
Sorry for the orc... maybe next time Now let's see the struggle of the Dwarf King (anyway there is Balin in wargear available at mithrils) and the King who survived the sunken Island-Kingdom wonder how he will be named leaving out the silmarillion mention.
to keep line with the idea of "blind voting" (even if the second round is open) I just wanted to say: Please Mithril, please Mr. T. GIVE US AN ORC HEROES BOXED SET of nine ORC figures with Grishnakh, Mauhur, Shagrat, Gorbag ...
It does not seem to be having many more new votes. So followers of Mauhur decide, although both Balin as Tar-Minastir killed many orcs in the past ..... ;D Balin already exists in Mithril, let's give a chance to the King of Númenor!
Interesting contradiction on when the poll closes, Michael - in your introduction piece it says 16:00 GMT (4:00pm) on 29 April, yet on the poll status panel it says 2:49pm on 30 April... Which of these is correct?
"A worthy man, but his memory is like a lumber-room: thing wanted always buried."
It looks like a last belated surge for the Numenorean may have decided the victor - but if the vote had ended at 16:00 yesterday as Michael's intro text seems to say it would, then Balin would have won (he was one vote ahead at the time). Or is it just that the phraseology of the intro is a bit ambiguous, and its intended meaning was that the switching of votes from one figure to another (rather than the poll itself) would end at 16:00? - I've only just realised it could be interpreted like that. Either way, it doesn't worry me unduly - both figures are nice ideas, and I'd be happy to see either (...though I'd have preferred Mauhur!).
Still, there are a few hours to go, and who knows, there may be 50 members out there about to vote for the White Hand guy...

Sorry about the delay in closing the vote. I miscalculated the auto closing but getting more votes from members is always beneficial. It does seem we got more votes this round than we have in months so that is a positive start to Summer. It is strange that we did not get the same amount of votes in the other poll.
