Fan's Choice Returns - 2006 ToyFare Poll
« on: December 13, 2005, 03:02 PM »
According to this post over at RS, the Fan's Choice Poll will be returning in 2006.  According to the article, starting December 14th, fans will be able to vote at WizardUniverse.com for the figure they want.  This seems to be a collaboration between Hasbro and ToyFare, and the voting is unlimited...anyone from any aspect of the Star Wars Universe is fair game.  The "top 25" will be published in issue 105 of ToyFare, then those 25 will be voted on as well.  More info at the linky.

Very cool idea I must say.  Now I just have the figure out only ONE figure that I've always wanted. ;)

Here's the letter from Zach Oat:

Starting December 14 at www.wizarduniverse.com, Star Wars fans will be able to nominate their choice for the next Fan's Choice Figure. Hasbro and ToyFare wanted to make sure that the voting wasn't limited in any way, so fans will now be able to nominate any character from any aspect of the Star Wars Universe, as long as the figure will fit on a 3ľ-inch-scale blister card.

If the character is referred to by his proper name, and any additional information is given in the proper format, all nominations at that size will be counted. (If you donąt know the character's name, we recommend visiting the Databank at StarWars.com.)

Once we have all of the nominations in, we will tabulate the top 25 nominees, based on how many people nominated them. Those 25 will be revealed in issue 105 of ToyFare, and fans will then be able to go to the Website again to vote on their choice.

Good luck, and may the choice be with you. (Get it?) - Zach Oat, Editor, ToyFare.

Indeed. :-\

I hope once it comes to the 25, they do a few elimination rounds first, instead of having to straight-up choose one single favorite from that many.

Hasbro said they want a figure that can fit in a 3 3/4" bubble, but with those big TSC bubbles, they could easily fit both Sisters in there.  :)

Well, you all know who I'm going to pick.  (Dorme).  This is a great idea for us to get some seriously obscure stuff, and also for hasbro to get the temperature of a lot of potential figures.  That top 25, if it's full of Dorme's and Beru's and Toryn Farr's etc. could lead to some interesting stuff.
