After some discussion among the JD Staff, we've decided to use the results from the 2009 JediDefender Wishlist: Tournament of Champions for the 2009 Hasbro Fans' Choice Poll.

We've been running the JD Wishlists for the last 5 years and we feel they are a pretty accurate representation of what the fans here at JD actually want to see Hasbro make.  Hasbro has always complimented us on the lists and the fact that they are honest opinions, including both resculpts we'd like and all-new figures.

So, like I was saying, we're going to use the JD Wishlist results... with a twist!  Here are the '09 JD Wishlist Results (with officially confirmed figures removed from the list):

1. Bom Vimdin16. Emperor Palpatine (Senate Duel)
2. Weequay (Skiff Master)17. Endor Rebel Soldier (Super Articulated Resculpt)
3. Bespin Han Solo (Super Articulated Resculpt)18. Fozec
4. Torryn Farr19. Kithaba
5. Doctor Evazan (Super Articulated Resculpt)20. Lumat/Wompus
6. Ponda Baba (Super Articulated Resculpt)21. Nien Nunb (Super Articulated Resculpt)
7. Hoth Princess Leia (Super Articulated Resculpt)22. Nikto (Vintage version)
8. Rebel Fleet Trooper (Super Articulated Resculpt)   23. Sim Aloo
9. ANH Grand Moff Tarkin (Super Articulated Resculpt)24. Zam Wessel (Super Articulated Resculpt)
10. Hoth Rebel Soldier (Echo Base)25. Tonnika Sisters (2-Pack)
11. Hoth Luke Skywalker (Super Articulated Resculpt)26. Joruus C'baoth
12. Mosep27. Admiral Pellaeon
13. Sergeant Doallyn28. Imperial Commander (SA Black Tunic)
14. Admiral Ackbar (Super Articulated Resculpt)29. Guri
15. Cliegg Lars30. ??

See #30 there, the one with the question marks?  We want your help in deciding who should get that slot!  It's one last chance to lobby for one last figure to get promoted to the “Top 30” list.

There are two rules - #1 you only get one vote per member and #2 your vote has to be one of the JD Wishlist: ToC nominees listed below.  If you vote more than once or pick someone not on the list, your post(s) will be deleted!

- 4-AD (Clone Wars 3D)- Lt Sheckil
- Ackmena- Lumpawarrump
- Anakin Skywalker (Clone Wars 3D Cold Weather)- Magna Droid (Super Articulated Resculpt)
- Anakin Skywalker (Outlander Super Articulated Resculpt)- Mawhonic

- Jocasta Nu- Tey How

Voting will close at 11:59pm on August 21st!  For housekeeping purposes, please post ONLY your votes in this thread.  Please post all thoughts/comments on the poll in the regular JD Wishlists 2009: Discussion thread.  Thanks!

So, so sweeeeet.

Celebration V: Orlando / 2010 Celebration V Confirmed by Hasbro
« on: July 23, 2009, 11:07 AM »
Celebration V has been confirmed for 2010!

Hasbro launched a new Clone Wars Diorama contest and one of the parts of the grand prize is that the winner will ..."have their scene displayed at the 2010 Star Wars Celebration!"

I wonder if LFL is going to be ticked that Hasbro leaked it before they could give it the big announcement treatment at Friday's panel?   :P

Kudos to all of you who 2-years ago predicted that this day would come...

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / San Diego Comic-Con 2009
« on: July 7, 2009, 01:02 PM »
Well, the time for the panel has been announced...

Friday, July 24th - 10-11 AM (Pacific):
Hasbro Star Wars
(Room 7AB)
Featuring Derryl DePriest (Hasbro Global Marketing), Brian Parrish (Hasbro Design), Mark Boudreaux (Hasbro Design), Brian Merten (Hasbro Design), Chad Donvito (Hasbro US Marketing) and Vickie Stratford (Hasbro Design). Come to the Hasbro Star Wars Panel to hear what the Hasbro Design and Marketing teams have in store for the remainder of 2009. Catch a special sneak peek into some 2010 secrets, too! Also includes Q&A time.

Just a little over 2 more weeks until the show.  What are you all hoping to see? 

I'm expecting a bunch of new vehicles since they've been teasing so many lately and I'm really hoping we get to see all the way to the end of the year - Wave 9 (RotJ), Wave 10 (ANH), Wave 11 (RotS), and Wave 12 (ESB).  Wave 13 (EU) would be nice, but I can wait for Toy Fair on that one if needed.  ;)

Kubricks / Medicom Toy Exhibition '09 (Parco Show)
« on: June 19, 2009, 02:20 PM »
There are days when I really, really wish my japanese was better.  First reports out of the Parco show... 

- it sounds like a new DELUXE SERIES program will be launched.  From what I can translate, it sounds like the first two deluxe series were being shown at Parco.  It sounds like (and this hasn't been confirmed or fully explained yet) there may be some sort of "build a" something feature incorporated, which is what makes is a "deluxe" series...

- I have also heard (but not been able to confirm or corroborate) that a Kubrick AT-ST was shown - no idea if it's a "for sale" item or just set dressing for the exhibit.  Working to lock that down...

Again, it's all rumor for now, but it sounds cool so far...  hopefully I'll have more soon.  8)

Kubricks / Medicom Toy Exhibition '09 Carded "Toy Fair" Vader
« on: June 19, 2009, 01:00 PM »
So, the big Parco show preview shindig was last night (or rather tonight, which has already happened in Japan) and the uber-exclusive Parco carded figure for 2009 is...

An homage to the 2002 Toy Fair Darth Vader!

Complete with saber sticking out of the top of the bubble...  definitely not what I was expecting.

Look for them to hit eBay soon!

Announcements / Notice: Forum Changes
« on: May 22, 2009, 12:00 PM »
Due to lack of activity, the following changes have been made to the forums.

- The Trivia Board has been removed - all discussion was moved to the Star Wars Universe Board.

- The International Corner Board has been removed - all Canadian topics were moved to the new Canada, eh! Section (enjoy your new home, Canadians ;)).  Threads for all other countries have been moved to the Mission Logs (Store Reports) Board.

That's all for now, but I'm sure there will be a bit more fine-tuning and spring cleaning in the near future...

I am excited to announce a few big changes you’ll see coming soon to 

First, has been sold and transferred to new co-owners - Paul Mundheim and myself, Jeff Smentek.  Both of us are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to play larger roles in the development of and its online community.  We’d like to thank the former owner, Chris Berry, for all of his hard work and dedication to the site over the past 6+ years. 

Second, is pleased to announce the addition of Han’s Hideout as an affiliate site.  The loyal Hideout readers will be happy to know that the site will still be maintained going forward.  You’ll still find the news, features, and Hasbro Q&A sessions you’ve come to expect, as well as new columns, rants, and more.

In addition to the changes listed above, over the next few weeks you’ll also see a number of other changes coming your way:
  • changes in the JediDefender Staff
  • the return of regular news and front page updates
  • the return of give-aways
  • new figure customizing contests
  • and a few other things we’ll be revealing at a future date (after all, we can’t let all the cats out of the bag at once!)

If you have a suggestion on something you think we can do to make a better place to visit, please drop by the Suggestion Thread or send us an email and let us know! 

Stay tuned for more and thanks for reading!
