A huge thanks has to go out to too many people to mention here…I put out a request for some Excel help last week in order to try and decipher the hundreds of write in’s that were supplied in Round One of the Concept Case survey.
I got almost two dozen offers of assistance, which absolutely blew me away. Matt from the Awesome Toy Blog did some great formatting and data gathering… ImpHolocron on Twitter came through as well… in the end, though, my man Trazz from HissTank.com took all of the intel together and compiled a pair of insane spreadsheets.
Who ever thought anyone would use the term “insane spreadsheets” to describe anything?
Trazz not only compiled a spreadsheet for figures and for vehicles, but actually charted the responses to measure a ratio of the most requested figures and vehicles via write in votes. Crazy.
I’ve attached the two spreadsheets here. The spreadsheets have multiple tabs, including a tab which has every single write in vote, but then also some compiled answers as well. The figures chart absolutely blew me away, showing that aside from Cobra “Viper” troopers of various ilk, Gung Ho seems to be far away the most requested character. That comes as no surprise.
Feel free to download the spreadsheets from this post and peruse them at your leisure. Excellent insight. Keep in mind that this isn’t anything that was fully analyzed by teams of professionals…it was essentially two guys (Trazz and myself, but mostly Trazz) who gathered this together and formatted it. I’m sure it’s not perfect, but it is very cool, nonetheless.
I cannot thank the numerous volunteers enough for pitching in with offers to help. Thank you ALL.
