I proposed 13th Century Chinese Song Dynasty Infantry, Japanese Kamakura Era and Korean Goryeo Dynasty sets although only the last was put up for vote.

Hooray,
two of my proposals are entering italeris vote-choice: the prussian ulans/landwehr cavalry and the british marlburians. It´s only a pity, that I don´t want to become a member of the facebook-community and in consequence I won´t have any possibility to vote.
Their choice-proposals seems to be focused mostly to the period of Risorgimento, their modern armies-range, british colonial and napoleonics. Unfortunatly they didn´t take my proposal to open an new range, to produce the armies of marlburian wars. It doesn´t make sense to produce a set of british marlburians without their enemies, the french, the austrians etc.
And I missing also some informations about the photos/troops. They think that everybody can identify which troops/sets they are proposing.

and the winner is...

Miniatures:
1) Pancho Villa!
2) Italian Modern Infantry (Afghanistan, 2002 onward)
3) Italian Colonial Infantry (Italo-Turkish War, 1911-1912, but presumably ok for Dogali 1887 and 1st Italo-Ethiopian War 1895-1896 too).

Too bad for Italian Risorgimento, Marlburians, Napoleonics, Middle Age Asia, Late Empire and FPW fans.

Military Vehicles:
1) WW2 Italian Fiat 626 Truck
2) WW2 Italian SPG/tank-destroyer 90/63
3) WW2 Italian Auto Cannone 90/53 AA on Lancia 3Ro Truck (but wasn't already there?)

Too bad for the Buffalo MRAP, WW1 Italian Tank Fiat 3000 and Lancia IZ Armored Car.

Aircrafts and Helicopters:
1) Italian trainer/light attack jet aircraft M-346 (2015)
2) British Hawker Hunter (1954-2014)
3) Italian Fiat G.91 fighter-bomber (1958-1995)
4) Italian Mangusta attack helicopter
5) US Viper attack helicopter
6) French Caracal transport helicopter

Too pity for the Westland Wasp, Falklands War is still missing a great protagonist.
The Lynx is badly missing too.

Well, what can I say, Italians should be quite satisfied but this is sure of not so great interest for US and British customers (the strongest reference market)!

Perhaps but Italeri do hold out some hope, not only for featured pictures that didn't make the top three but pictures that were submitted but not featured, in the message that states: "not only the most voted but all the requests we have received from you, will be analysed by our Research & Development team"

Good luck everybody!
