2009 Fans' Choice Figure Poll Winner Announced
Jay Cochran - January 12, 2010

Bastila Shan After months of voting on many of the online Star Wars fan sites including this one, the winning character of Hasbro's 2009 Fans' Choice Poll has been revealed in the newest issue of Toy Fare magazine.

The winner is......

1. Bastila Shan who was a Human female that served as a Jedi Knight during the Jedi Civil War. Born on the planet Talravin to Helena Shan and a treasure hunter, her mother gave her up to the Jedi Order, believing that their lifestyle of travel and exertions was not a suitable for the young Shan. Shan was found to have an exceptional gift with a Force power known as Battle Meditation; which increased her allies' morale while demoralizing her enemies. Shan sided with the Jedi Council when the Jedi Knights Revan and Malak rebelled against the Council and joined the Galactic Republic in its war against the invading Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders. One year after the final battle of the Mandalorian Wars, Revan returned from the Unknown Regions as the new Dark Lord of the Sith, with Malak as his apprentice, at the head of a new Sith Empire. Two years into the Jedi Civil War, Shan was the leader of a Jedi strike team sent to capture Darth Revan and Darth Malak. When her team boarded Revan's vessel, they managed to corner the Dark Lord on the bridge. Before they could engage Revan in combat, Malak, who was separated from his Master during the battle, betrayed Revan by ordering the guns of his flagship Leviathan to fire on Revan's vessel, in an attempt to destroy both the Jedi and Revan.

Bastila Shan first appeared in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. For more background on this character, click here.

She will be made into a Hasbro action figure and released sometime in 2011.

The exact number of votes each character got was not revealed in the results, but the 4 runner up characters in the Fans' Choice Poll after Shan were as follows:

2. Jocasta Nu
3. Darth Caedus
4. Darth Plagueis
5. Jaxxon

Though not guaranteed, in previous Hasbro fan choice polls, many of the runner up choices also made it into plastic form along with the winning choice. So if your pick did not win, it's possible the same could happen here and the character you voted for could end up getting made as a action figure at some point.
