Hasbro has given MakingStarWars readers the opportunity to participate in the first ever 6″ Star Wars: The Black Series Fan’s Choice Poll.
Readers will have the opportunity to vote for the character that they most want to see in the 6″ Black Series line. Once all the votes are tallied, we will send to Hasbro a list of the top six characters with the greatest number of votes.
The collective votes from MSW and other participating sites will be tabulated, and a final ballot of six will be launched July 2nd at 9:00 AM PST on StarWars.com. The winning character will then be announced at Hasbro’s Star Wars panel at San Diego Comic-Con on July 10th.
ALL Star Wars characters are eligible for the poll EXCEPT characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens (so save those Supreme Leader Snoke votes, but Legends characters are fair game)!
Also, characters from Star Wars Rebels or The Clone Wars animated shows would be sculpted in the realistic style of the Star Wars: The Black Series line.
HOW TO VOTE:
- Leave a comment below with ONE character that you want to see the most. One vote per person. If you vote twice we will consider your second vote to supersede your first vote and will delete that first vote.
- For your vote please include ONLY the character name and no additional commentary. Be specific. For example: Commander Wolffe, Clone Wars, Phase II armor. This will clarify as there is Phase I armor Wolffe as well as a Rebels version of Wolffe.
- If you see your character already listed, please “like” that comment.
- DO NOT REPOST CHARACTER NAMES as those comments will be deleted and the votes nullified. Please search for your character’s name before commenting.
- DEADLINE TO VOTE: Monday, June 29th at 11:59 PM PST.
Once voting is closed, we will send the six characters with the most votes to Hasbro. Thanks for participating in this great event!
It’s a good idea to do a little research on what characters are already coming. For example, we all saw a prototype Rebels Ahsoka Tano at Star Wars Celebration. Captain Rex from The Clone Wars was also discussed during our interview with Hasbro as a character that is coming. C-3PO also was discussed by Hasbro previously. I won’t mention others that haven’t actually been discussed by Hasbro but certainly the reports are out there.
If you have any questions, tweet me at @CPThrio and I’ll do my best to answer. MTFBWY!
