2011 Hasbro Fans' Choice Poll
« on: September 1, 2011, 06:07 PM »
Hasbro has announced a new Fans' Choice Poll for Star Wars!

New Star Wars Fans' Choice Poll

We'll have details soon on how we plan to poll our readers to send into Hasbro.

This is pretty exciting stuff.  Can't wait to see who's going to make the top 20 list!

These things are always rigged. Hasbro already picked the winner...and it is probably the ROTJ Blu-Ray edition Dug.  :P

Could be, but EU's a lot more fractured and stuff these days.

I wouldn't say no to another Ebon Hawk crewmember from KOTOR winning. Seems like the only way we'll ever get them. I wants me some T3 to go with HK at least.

I'm really wondering what direction this poll will go in.  So it makes sense to look at where we've been in the previous polls:

Here are the standings from the 2009 poll.  The submissions were made by Hasbro Star Wars Q&A participating sites, and the final vote was conducted by the now-defunct Toyfare magazine:

1 - Bastila Shan 10.6%   POLL WINNER - DUE OUT Q4/'11
2 - Jocasta Nu 10%
3 - Darth Caedus 8%
4 - Darth Plageuis 7.9%
5 - Jaxxon 4%
6 - Admiral Pellaeon 3.7%
7 - Dash Rendar 3.7%
8 - Guri 3.6%
9 - Dorme 3.5%
10 - Bariss Offee 3.5%  MADE - VC-51
11 - Weequay Skiff Master 3.5%  MADE - VC-48
12 - Tzizvvt 2.9%
13 - Kittster and Wald 2.8%
14 - Toryn Farr 2.6%
15 - Cane Adiss 2.4%
16 - Rebel Fleet Trooper 2.4%  MADE - VC-52
17 - Bom Vimdin 2.4%  MADE - VC-53
18 - Cliegg Lars 2.3%
19 - Joruus C’Baoth 2.3%
20 - Grand Moff Tarkin 2.1%
21 - Ben-Quadinaros 2.1%  DUE OUT Q1/'12
22 - Darth Sidious 1.9%  MADE - VC-12
23 - Queen Apailana 1.8%
24 - Tey How 1.8%
25 - Sim Aloo 1.7%
26 - Sgt. Doallyn 1.5%
27 - Taym Dren-Garen 1.3%
28 - Dr. Evazan 1%  DUE OUT Q1/'12
29 - Corde 0.8%
30 - Queen Jamilla 0.7%



I think this poll is going to be decidedly different.  I don't think the top ten from the past poll are going to rank as well this time around.  Who will?  That remains to be seen.  But I think if the collecting community can rally around a few characters, those will probably be the ones that make the top ten.

Agreed...not having toyfare run the poll will definitely shift things away from EU in my opinion...not sure who the community will even rally around because there really isn't to me a stand out unmade character other than the Tonnika Sisters.

Grand Moff Tarkin has been confirmed too, Nick

I only noted figures that have been offered at retail, or there has been visual confirmation of a hard copy figure.  Once Hasbro actually SHOWS a hard copy of a figure publically, it's pretty much a lock.  I've seen the mention of Tarkin via the Q&A process, too.  But until we see a hard copy version I think there's the potential for a change.  Hence my notations.

ICMG and RFT have been made, so Scott and Jesse won't rig the results.  ;)

In reality, I guess we'll find out when it's all over.

I think it's horse**** that they stipulate any characters from the Clone Wars that win have to be made in the realistic style.

You've already alienated me from even wanting to participate now, Hasbro.

I think Jocasta Nu might come back with a vengeance, seeing how upset people were when she came in second and Hasbro still refused to make her.

I heard there was some ballot stuffing going on in regards to Jocasta Nu at one time... but now with the release of the Lost 20, she'll have more screen-time and perhaps more backing. A Jedi Librarian figure, cool!

I think my top two for a poll like this have to be Tzizvvt and Cliegg Lars.

Tziv seems like the kind of Cantina Alien that's going to be overshadowed by Baniss Keeg and "The-Girls-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named" unless he ups his profile through a poll like this.  Plus the similarity to Wiosela hurts his chances too.  I'd love to see him place better than the 12th he got in the last poll.

And poor Cliegg has led the JD AOTC Wishlist for SEVEN straight years.  The fact that we have AOTC Beru and AOTC Owen now makes his absence even more painful.  He deserves to be way higher than the 18th he got last time.

I'd vote for Jaxxon over Jocasta.

My money is on the bunny.

He'd beat her by a hare.
