Excuse me but according to the poll, there should be heroes of the past ten years. That Zack thing was most likely only eleven ten years ago. What’s the point of having them (Joe J. as well) along with Jo. Also Mr. Obama is only a president for a few months and he hasn’t done anything great yet. Anyway i can’t wait to listen to John’s comments on this.

I love Dan Radcliffe, but wouldn’t it make more sense to have “Harry Potter” and “Dr Who” on the list rather than Dan & David Tennant? And Zac Efron? Does he play some sort of hero? And the Jonas Bros? Well, I suppose they’re heroes to some, but I’m NOT a fan.

I’m surprised Miley Cyrus is not on the list even though she is total CRINGE for me.

YAY for JKR!

On the other hand, Zac Efron? Joe Jonas? What the heckles?

Half that list should not be considered heroes of the last ten years, I am guessing the poll was not stretched down first by the peeps at LEGOland.
