Hasbro Star Wars Black Series ESB40 Fan Vote

Bespin refugee - February 19, 2019

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in 2020, Hasbro is giving fans the chance to help them decide which Star Wars character they would like to see added to the Black Series line… Starting on Tuesday, 2/19, they are asking fans to share their votes on which Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back character they want made into a 6-inch figure. Once voting closes (2/21), Hasbro will take top 10 picks from all of the fan sites to host a final fan vote on the Hasbro Pulse Instagram the following week.

You can only choose characters from The Empire Strikes Back

The winning figure will not be a retool of a previously released figure, so cast your votes accordingly!

You can place your vote in this thread.

I voted for Hoth Rebel Trooper but congrats to Lobot. I'm not sure why people went bananas for him...I mean I would want him eventually but more as a "sure, let's get him out of the way", and not "I need this figure in my life right now!"

I went with Lobot but it was really a toss up between him and Wedge

FASVB - 2019-02-21 @ 10:47 pm

I vote Leia. Sorry @JayCThere is no such thing as enough Leias

Jake_Botts - 2019-02-21 @ 1:50 pm

Meditation Chamber Vader and Wedge could be fun, sadly, Luke is leading the vote.

Excited to see the Fan Vote again, bummed to see the restriction. Still so many prequel and EU characters deserve to be made instead of "random background character". Were now justgetting Mace Windu.. We haventt even seen a Count Dooku yet as an example.

Damn, Im kind of stuck between Wedge, and the three droids, 2-1B, FX-7 and K-3PO... Im going to have to mull this one over a bit.

Yep, their rules:

o Only characters from Empire Strikes Back can be included in the poll?

o Note, the winning figure will not be a retool of a previously released figure, so cast your votes accordingly!

o Only 1 vote can be submitted per email address or social handle per day

I took this statement in a completely different manner. I don't see any part of the statement that says certain things wouldn't evenbe considered (other than ESB limitations). But rather, whichever figure wins, would be newly tooled.

to me, an example how I interpreted thiswould be: -Currentlyhave a few versions of x-wing pilots. If the fan's choice winner were to be any form of an x-wing pilot, they would create new tooling for the winning figure rather than reuse existing x-wing pilot tooling.

Not meaning: -Don't pick an x-wing pilot, because there is already tooling for that, so it wouldn't be considered at all.

I don't know if that makes sense to anyone else. But that's how it came across to me. Would it change anything about our voting options, if Hasbro's intent was more in line with what I was thinking?

I'd really like to have other voting options available instead of being limited to what we've currently got here.
