I'm glad I'm not the only one that recognized that some posters, and sites in general, have interpreted Hasbro's statements incorrectly. There are posters on RS, for example, that have been posting for two days now about how Bastila Shan was already announced and they're demanding Hasbro pass on her the same way they passed on Vos for Malak.
Unfortunately, Hasbro never announced her, not in the Q&A and not in the ToyFare article that people are trying to cite. But, you can't argue with facts most of the time because, well, most people just want to be pissed off, they don't care if they're right or not.
Whatever. I'm fine with Shan winning. I do believe that these polls should be used to vote for characters less likely to be made by Hasbro. Honestly, Tarkin and Senate Duel Palpatine, for example, are such main characters that Hasbro alsmost can't skip them. So why vote for them in a poll like this? Characters in the grey area like Bariss or the handmaidens I can see, even the (very, very) background OT characters like Taym Dren-Garen need these types of polls to help Hasbro guage interest.
One other thing, I refuse to accept that Jaxxon, the "space bunny," is somehow less of a valid poll option than Cane Adiss or Tzizvvt, the space giraffe and the space fly. Especially Tzizvvt, which I think was the biggest waste of poll space and should never even appear on Hasbro's radar.
