Just reading SSG's write up...sounds almost like we will get to pick a list and vote off on our site.  But it also sounds like it might be repacks :-[ (at least that is way SSG words it)

That's what DePriest was telling us at CIV. He pulled Curto, Dale, myself, and maybe Darth Spice aside and started talking about doing another round of SAGA legends but this tiem the voting would be done at all of the major sites. He wasn't real sure on the details at the time, but I think this time it is supposed to be 100% "fan choice" repacks. So yeah, a little disapointing but he did say that figures like Ephant Mon would be availible, so at least we get some say in what is repacked.

At this point I am hoping the McQuarrie figures can be voted on for repacks.  At least McFett and McChewie.

Ah good call. But we might have a chance at these again later in the year with refresh cases. So it might be premature to voe for them now.

Gawd, I just can't think of any figs I want to see rereleased again.

It's nice that hasbro is listening to us to this degree. But I too would rather have Willrow Hood or Yarna.

+1. Tired of getting to choose rehashes. Let's pick the new ones.

Agreed 110%. We need some new figures over all these repack/repaints.

TO THE STAFF: How are we gonna do this?
« Reply #11 on: August 3, 2007, 04:00 PM »
FROM REBELSCUM:

Hasbro is looking for a final 5-6 figures that will round out the Saga Legends line, and which will be on shelf approximately March 2008. All Star Wars fansites that have been regular contributors to the semi-weekly Star Wars Q&A are welcome to send us their top 10 list of figures they would like to see us re-release.

Fansites can determine these 10 any way they prefer, either by polling their readers or some other method. The figures need to be in rank order of importance from 1-10.

All site top 10 lists need to be received by Friday August 17th. The following Monday, all the lists will be combined together (each website getting an equal voice) with the #1 figure on each list worth 10 points, the #2 figure worth 9 points, #3 worth 8 points, etc. The resultant point values will be used to generate one final Top 20 list which will then be posted to Hasbro.StarWars.Com for netwide fan voting through the end of August.





Figures ineligible for Saga Legends voting consideration

Ineligible: Any figures that have been used for exclusives or mainline sets from March 2007 or later (or previous exclusives whose retailer is still stocking them). This means that figures from sets such as:

the McQuarrie convention exclusives (Luke Skywalker, R2-D2 & C-3PO, Obi-Wan & Yoda)

Order 66 2-packs

Tusken Raiders

Mandalorian packs

Battlefront II packs

AT-RT Patrol

181st TIE Interceptor Pilot

ARC-170 Battle Pack

Lucas Family pack

Shadow Scout Trooper

Felucia Battle Pack

Ambush on Ilum Battle Pack

Clone Attack on Coruscant Battle Pack

The Hunt for Grievous Battle Pack

Kir Kanos/Carnor Jax comic pack

2007 vintage assortment

other upcoming sets are ineligible.

Some figures will not be eligible because tooling is not available at the time due to their use in upcoming products. This includes any figures from the previous (2005) Evolution packs among others that may not be available.

Eligible: All other 3-3/4" figures that were either released as basic figures, Vintage figures, vehicle drivers, or released as part of a multi-figure set prior to March 2007. Exclusives and other sets whose figure are eligible for consideration include:

Republic Commandos

Death Star Briefing Room

the Saga Tins

Zev Senesca

the figures from the Toys R 'Us Endor AT-AT

and the like.
Pretty much all other figures are fair game!


How will we be doing this? Thanks.

I actually agree with the figures that are ineligible. Anything released this year should be out of the running, its just too recent.
