Tonika sisters!  This has to be the year. 
Climbed a mountain & never came back. I will not quit & I always fight back 
From this moment for all my life. What could I say? Was born to be this way. And what could I say?  Just livin' for today

Iíd love a Luggabeast but that is probably as likely as the Tonika sisters.

Cantina or jabba aliens would be sweet too.

I'd love to see some kind of announcement about the license changing hands, but that is probably too much to hope for.  :P  :D

Would be cool to see the rumored 6" Zeb, some new vehicles for Resistance, and some kind of update on possible Clone Wars toys for the new micro-series.

The Black Series is where I'm expecting some of the more significant reveals tomorrow.  There are some rumors out there and I'm wondering which of those will get confirmed.

As for some hopes?  I really liked the 40AC subline, and I would like it if Hasbro could offer up more figures in that format.  Hasbro managed to produce all of the classic Kenner 12-back characters in the 6" Black Series.  How about finishing the 20-back characters, too?  And if it's the 20-back card with the Boba Fett offer, call it 21.  Hasbro has already made 16 of those characters in the Black Series, and 14 of those were offered on the 40AC style cardback.  It might be cool to offer the remaining 7 on those same cards, and yes that even includes Greedo!  So I'm hoping that Hasbro will take on the rest of the original Cantina aliens like Momaw Nadon (Hammerhead), Zutton (Snaggletooth) and Ponda Baba (Walrusman) as well as the Death Star Droid and Power Droid. 

As for other stuff?  I'd like to be surprised, so let's wait and see.

Yes, I saw that Hasbro is hosting a fan choice for an ESB 6" figure to celebrate the 40th anniversary of ESB in 2020. 

Yes, JediDefender will be a voting site participant, but I am embargo'd to say anything beyond that.  Look for more next week!    :-X

A Fan's Choice Poll specific to TESB?  Knowing this site?  I cannot possibly imagine who might be in the running </end sarcasm>

The choices are definitely going to be narrow.  The bounty hunters are all done.  They've knocked off a couple of the Imperial Officers.  And most of the main characters have been touched upon.  The ones that come to mind?

-Hoth Rebel Trooper
-General Rieekan
-Admiral Ozzel
-2-1B
-FX-7
-Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder pilot)
-Wedge Antilles (Snowspeeder pilot)
-Luke Skywalker (Dagobah training)
-Darth Vader (Dark Side cave apparition)
-Lobot
-Leia (Bespin gown)
-Willrow Hood
-Cloud Car Pilot
-Bespin Guard
-C-3PO (blasted w/ cargo net)

Yes, but if these are going to be on vintage cards like ANH ones then the previously released ESB figures are eligible.

That being said, I like your list, Nick.

I'll take Lobot, or the Cloud Car Pilot for sure.

Feel free to use this thread to discuss the ESB fan poll voting or link to other sites hosting a poll or whatever (since there wasnt much else to talk about for Black Series 6" stuff at toy fair). ;)

I'm kind of glad to see such a limited window for voting.  It gives people less time to game the poll and this time around we might get  some more legitimate results.

These are some of the other participating sites that have already launched or have announced their polls:

Can someone briefly describe to me the differences between "X-Wing Luke" and "Snowspeeder Luke"?  To each their own, but I'm having a hard time envisioning why I would buy this figure since I (probably naively) think of them as a slight variation on each other, and I already own the X-Wing Luke figure.

Snowspeeder Pilot Luke has a puffy collar jacket, snow boots, different belt, different gloves, different chest box hose configuration to start.
