As some of you may be aware...A question was put to me in the Ahsoka thread:

Quote:
I still dont understand why your trying to say Mace Windu is as popular as Ahsoka.This is a joke. You seem like an intelligent person focused on facts so you should research this false claim of yours more.Ahsoka will always be more popular than Mace


And as Caedus said:

Quote:
Well unless we have the numbers we can't prove who is more popular, Mace or Ashoka. That's definitely not a provable fact, and the popularity of a character depends on target market. Ashoka, Jar Jar, young Anakin, these are things targeted to younger children. Ashoka specifically is targeted at younger girls and has done a good job of that. At this point arguing who is more popular will descend into childishness and do nothing but create problems. All recurring characters are popular to somebody or they wouldn't be kept around.


Well, I was stumped (though I'm sure you figured out by now, not for long). I wondered where I could get the numbers for fan preferences, and then realised I couldn't. Then I wondered how I could effectively poll the fans to find the answer. The answer was, of course, that I couldn't. At least, not all of them. Fortunately, there is this place. It's a nice place, you should stop by stome time, have a nerf steak and some blue milk (Yes, Rogue, I am gunning for your EUCast job Razz ). Because this place has a very varied group of fans that, I feel, we could get at the very least a small microcosm of fandom.

So, my question is: Who do you prefer, Mace Windu or Ahsoka Tano?

Now, bear in mind that this isn't a 'who would win in a fight' scenario. Simply a question of personal preference. A bit like Reep's Top 100 thread, only dedicated to these two.

I like them both, but come on, Mace Windu is Mace Windu. A Jedi Master from the PT who kicked butt with the biggest of them and who was (also important) played by Samuel L. Jackson. I really like this character.
Ashoka on the other hand can be fun on TCW and I like her most of the times, but there's also a lot of episodes starring her that bore the crap out of me. On top of that her "sharp and witty" remarks tend to annoy me half of the time.

P.S. Hoorah! A hundred posts Very Happy I just turned Knight!

I feel Mace will win the vote here, but we're hardly Ahsoka's fan club. Unless all of you are 12-year-old girls and I didn't know it...

Note: the top 100 thread is Reep's.

And I'm the only Ahsoka fan Crying or Very sad

Wonder if I was the only fan who was happy when Mace fell out the window. Laughing

Skuls, I like Ahsoka too, especially this last season. I really enjoy the relationship growth between her and Anakin.

I also think she's going to survive Order 66. But somehow she's going to influence Anakin's fall to the dark side.

Honestly Ashoka has gotten more tolerable but she's just not my thing. I get that she's fun and has become an ok apprentice but she just kinda bores me. I honestly think she'll die in Order 66 because other than that I'm not sure how she could contribute to his darkside downfall (I'm not putting a lot of thought into it, I just don't care for her that's the only reason). She is ok as a character overall but she didn't add a lot to the film canon and since this series erased the original Gennedy Tartovinski series I'm kinda annoyed by it as that was great, this not so much...

Plus Mace Windu is Mace Windu! The master of the shatterpoint, the man of honor, the man of power, one who dances with the dark side and defeats it on a regular basis, the only master of Vapaad! He took out an army of battle droids with no lightsaber, just the Force! He died, but honestly that didn't make him less cool. Go Mace!

I have always been a Mace fan, so I'd go with him. But OMB is right, this is kind of a biased place. If you asked younger fans they'd probably go Ahsoka. And there's nothing wrong with that. Just like if you did a Luke or Anakin poll, age would have a big factor in who a person voted for.

Mace also has the advantage of actually being in the films.

Not that the 12 year olds would care. Some of them have probably only seen the TV show.

Life, how could you? Sad Razz

I like Mace better.

If Ahsoka is more popularthan Mace, it's in the way Justin Bieber is. Famous, but not the most liked.

Reeps, Skuls, I am so sorry. I just don't know why I keep getting you two mixed up! My sincerest of apologies, a thousand times so.

I guess, if it was anything, it would be that I see you as a bit of a double act. Like Laurel and Hardy, like House and Wilson, like Kermit and Miss Piggy. Wait... Embarassed

You've discovered my secret, OMB (Or should I call you Padme? That seems to be my thing at the moment Laughing ).
Agreed that we're not exactly her fan club. However, it's not so much calling to be that, and the same with Mace, but I feel there's enough here who like her enough not to be called Snip-haters.

To prove my point, just look at SkulReep's ( Rolling Eyes ) banner in his signature.

P.S. Hoorah! A hundred posts I just turned Knight!

Congratulations, Ree'dius!
