The one point about the polls this time around that seem noteworthy is the narrow timeframe for the polls.  The shorter the duration of the poll, the less likely it seems that someone could really stuff the ballot box.  And if they tried, it would be really noticeable.

Seek and ye shall find!  So the finalists are:

1 - Lobot
2 - 2-1B
3 - Hoth Rebel Soldier
4 - Willrow Hood
5 - Wedge Antilles (Snowspeeder)
6 - Princess Leia  (Bespin Gown)
7 - Luke Skywalker  (Dagobah)
8 - Ugnaught
9 - Imperial Probe Droid
10 - FX-7 Medical Droid

Thanks for posting this.  I voted for the Hoth Rebel Soldier, but would be okay with most of these.  I'd like to see WH win just for Scott, but I don't see him topping this list.  I'm surprised at the seemingly large number of votes for a Probe Droid.  It would fit with a lot of other Hoth stuff getting produced, but would most certainly be a deluxe figure.  #Rigged you say? 

I also wonder what Hasbro does with the people that vote for multiple figures or say "#7 if he comes in a two pack with Yoda."  He certainly will not come in a two pack, so do they count that vote?  I'll vote #9 if he comes with a Hoth Rebel Soldier.   ???  My favorite is the guy on there lobbying for a Bossk write in vote.  Its been done, man.  Twice.

I suppose he just wants him on a vintage card.

Looks like the winner was announced on Hasbro Pulse's Instagram page.

Dagobah Luke.

Meh.  I'll buy it, but I would rather we had something more obscure/interesting.  I've already got 7 Luke figures...

Because the 14th slightly different version of Luke is more appealing than an all new character?  ::)

I agree meh.

I do though find it sorta humorous that these votes are either "too obscure" or "not obscure enough"

Yes, the most boring, and most likely to otherwise be made choice.

Not at rigged at all. We swear.

Dagobah Luke?  How did that win?  The only people I saw voting for that were the ones that wanted it in a 2 pack with Yoda.  I don't know why I always think these votes actually count for anything.  Hasbro's just going to make what they want to make.   :P

I like Dagobah Luke and all, and will definitely buy one, but I was hoping for something a little more obscure here too. I think we have had more Lukes than pretty much any other character in the 6" line (Tatooine, Stormtrooper, X-Wing, Bespin, Hoth, Jedi, Force Awakens, soon to be exclusive new Stormtrooper Luke). Again, happy to get it, but didn't need a fan vote probably.

This is one where you had to feel pretty secure that Hasbro would have made this figure without the need for a Fan Choice Poll.

I guess it's my own fault for not checking this thread frequently, but nice of Hasbro to advertise the poll everywhere. I had no idea it was even going on. And on Instagram too? Whatever.

I'm just hoping they can make a good Luke headsculpt this time around, but the results of the new facial paint applications have been promising so far.
