Press Release

Star Wars Insider magazine and Hasbro have joined forces to give Star Wars fans the chance to vote for a Star Wars character to be made into an action figure! The figure will be included in Hasbro’s Star Wars action figure line in 2013, in time for the 30th anniversary of Return Of The Jedi.

There are twenty Star Wars characters in the running. The winning character will be announced at Hasbro’s 2012 Collector-Fan Media Day event at Toy Fair in New York in February 2012.

“Everybody loves collecting Star Wars and this is a rare chance to vote for a character to be made into an action figure, says Jonathan Wilkins, Star Wars Insider editor. “There are some really diverse characters to choose from; from the movies to the Expanded Universe; from the dreaded Emperor Palpatine to the cute Princess Kneesa. We want as many fans as possible to get involved! Who will you choose?  You can read more about the history of the fan poll in the latest issue of Star Wars Insider, out now! Get voting!”

The toy that makes it into production will be decided by this poll alone, so this really is your chance to stake a claim for the toy you’d like to own most.

To place your vote, visit the Star Wars Insider magazine website at:

The poll closes at midnight on December 1, 2011

    Oh neat! I kept missing the deadline every time they’ve had a figure vote, nice to have a chance to vote this time.

    I voted for Jaxxon, the green rabbit from Marvel’s run.

      As did I. While I don’t much care for Jaxxon specifically, I do like the Lepus Carnivore/Lepi species in general. Then again, I tend to like a few of the lesser known Star Wars races (Except for one Twi’lek, I always chose the stranger races for my characters back when I played the tabletop Star Wars RPG).
