Hasbro Announces New Star Wars Fan's Choice Poll - 6-Inch Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 22, 2015

...despite the graphic, we're actually very excited to report that one of our favorite fan events is making a long-awaited return!  Rejoice!

Given that we're not even two years into the 6-inch line, it's pretty amazing that Hasbro has made this announcement: "Hasbro is pleased to once again invite you and your readers to help determine its next STAR WARS Fans’ Choice figure! And for the first time ever, the STAR WARS Fans' Choice poll will choose a 6-inch scale STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES figure!"

Wow!  Well, the good news is we get to have a say in who's coming. The bad news is that since it's a little early, it probably won't get weird - after all, we haven't got the main cast of the original Star Wars yet, nor Lando, nor Jango, nor Made Windu or any of Jabba's stooges.   As such a popular movie character will no doubt get the nod before an Expanded Universe favorite like Fordo or Mara Jade.

So how do you, the reader, participate?  (UPDATE: You can't! Comments are now closed and votes are being tallied.)   Hasbro has invited us at this site to send along our top 5 choices.  You can leave your picks in the comments section, we'll total them up and send them along to Hasbro on June 30.  (You can also send emails.  Don't email in if you have poor taste.)  Voting proper starts July 2, and Hasbro will tell us the winner at Comic-Con in July.  That's a crazy fast turnaround.

So leave a comment for your favorite characters below - and know that the correct answers include Vlix, Max Rebo, Droids-cartoon colored C-3PO, and Amanaman.

One last thing from Hasbro and Hunter PR:

"PLEASE NOTE: All STAR WARS characters are eligible for the poll, EXCEPT characters from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. If you have any questions about whether a character would or would not be eligible, please let us know and we'll do our best to answer.

Also note: Any characters from the STAR WARS REBELS or STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS animated series would be sculpted in the realistic style of the STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES line."
