Controversy, I smell it. It appears that this is going to turn out just the way I thought with an expanded universe (2?) fig being made because ' what? ICMG? we can't dare make him!'. All likely predetermined with Hasbro. Think about it... Expanded universe 2 packs already coming that we heard about ::). With little imagination it fits right in ..look, see- 2 figs are being made(sounds like they're EX. Universe too)... A fan choice Ex. universe 2 pack in the works :P, lame. Preplanned, I fear, the winner(s) were. A Jaina and Jacen 2 pack? I felt all along Q. Voss or another Ex Univ. would be made. My 58 votes for ICMG(from different IP's) are wasted, though I wonder that if only a handful of folks could get that many votes for him on their own or more how the results came to be :-\.

I guess it's suspiciously coincidentaly? easier since Hasbro already as Ex universe plans coming up anyway. Hmmmm

I really hope sadistically that a Mara/Katarn 2 pack gets made...figs that we've already gotten, that would be fun!

Cool!....Aaak!That 6 boob lady is likely to win! :-\
I hope some EU character wins (one of the Solos would be sweet as well as Mara & that droid).

If Yarna wins, I will be furious. She will be the ultimate pegwarmer of ALL TIME. The Neimoidian Warrior will seem like Commander Cody as far as rare-ness compared to Yarna!

Personally, I'm not believeing anything until I see the magazine or see a scan of the magazine that says who wins. I'm not trying to rag on TheJawa, or any other site, but any website can make a post saying they have connections to the editor and know who will and won't be made.

Well, Mr. Curto really does have connections, and he has leaked some info here and there, so you just never know!

She would sell just as well as the previous fan choice winner.

Vos won, but since they're already making him, they chose the 2nd place winner which was Darth Revan according to here, (3rd reply up from the bottom)

Damn you beat me to it, they also mentioned Carnor Jax is revealed to be the mystery figure.

Overwhelmingly? That's a surprise... No OT winners, then? I'll be disapointed if this is true.

Why? Besides the McQuarrie Stormie (which you could still consider OT), all the winner's of the fan's choice in the past has been OT.


Uh... yea, that's exactly my point.

Yes! I'm so glad a KOTOR character won!

Now maybe they'll make a KOTOR line to go with Revan. 8)

While Revan certainly looks cool I can't help but notice not many people voted for him...I smell something fishy as well

Considering the fact that you're now being answered by the person who wrote the article for The Jawa, perhaps I can offer some insights to you.  

If you bothered to read THE ARTICLE, you would note that the information in that piece is directly attributed to Zach Oat, the Managing Editor of ToyFare magazine.  ToyFare is the chief body that is running the current Fan's Choice Poll.  

You'll also notice that there are direct quotes attributed to the aforementioned Mr. Oat.  Now, if you're questioning the veracity of the piece, by all means, please PM me and I'll supply you with his email address and you can ask him if he really said those things.  I'm sure that if you choose to pursue that, it'll be the source of many a laugh when I see him at a party next weekend.   ;D

Well, Mr. Curto really does have connections, and he has leaked some info here and there, so you just never know!

I've actually been in contact with Dan regarding this story.  He has the same sources I do.  Not going to trust him?


I'm not trying to rag on TheJawa, or any other site

You know, when people say this or write this, MAYBE there is the intention not to rag on someone....but if a person needs to preface their statement with those words, then they're doing just that.  Have a nice day.  ;D

Saw the post at TNI.  I'm not prone to believing it just because of the source.  I actually know who that guy is.  He's a known scalper in my area and a known liar.  I'll reserve my judgement until I actually see a hardcopy or a scan of the issue.

I really hope that is the case, because Revan IMO needs to have a customizable figure made of him/her. At least a male and female body version, but I would like the different head variations (15 each or something like that) too. That is the only way Hasbro will make me happy with this character. Ball-joint articulation is a must and many accessories too.

Darth Revan ???  Never heard of him.  I wonder how fixed the voting was for this?
