Hasbro’s 6” Black Series Fan’s Choice Poll – Final Results!

Luke

#1 TFA Luke Skywalker

The results are in! After 5 days and nearly 500 votes, you have chosen who SWNN will submit for the Star Wars Fan’s Choice poll. So, what did the results show?

BillyDee

#6 TESB Lando Calrissian

Well, SWNN readership seems to be somewhat evenly divided between the new canon and legends EU. Book-ending the results were some OT heroes. One is sporting their classic look and another sporting their new one. Luke from The Force Awakens took the top spot. So for all those out there who voted for this, soon you too may be able to put your Skywalker on a rock and have him stand there motionless for minutes on end. At the bottom of the top was Lando in his original Bespin gear (sorry to the one vote for General Lando, SWNN readers prefer that suave, seventies, blue).

Ventress-SWE

#4 Asajj Ventress

Falling between the monolithic Jedi and the former owner of the Cloud City Tabana Gas Mines was a variety of EU favorites from both the new canon and old EU. Representing the new canon was the always popular skin head sister of Dathomir herself, Assaj Ventress.

Jaina

#2 Jaina Solo

Meanwhile, filling out the rest of the top 6 were EU favorites and legacies of the now evaporated Skywalker extended family, Jaina Solo and Mara Jade, and the sullen and powerful protagonist of The Force Unleashed games, Starkiller (aka Galen Marak)

Mara_Jade

#3 Mara Jade

So, those are the top 6 who will be submitted for final consideration and aggregated together with the rest of results from the other participating sites. Special shout outs to near contenders, Cad Bane, Kyle Katarn, General Grievous, and HK-47 who just missed the final cut.

starkiller

#5 Galen Marek (Starkiller)

Additional mention should also be made for some of the more surprising entries. Matt the Radar technician, also known as Kylo Ren gone Undercover Boss from SNL, got some votes. Favorites from the new canon EU, Ciena Ree and Mr. Bones, got votes as well. I’d expect demand will grow for them in coming years. Also, a very nice couple of votes for R2-KT, maybe she’ll do better next year as well. Yes, even George Lucas and Pablo Hidalgo got votes. Maybe someday we’ll be able to play fantasy Lucasfilm Story Group meeting with our Black Series figures, but today is sadly not that day.

So that is that. Look out for the official site to post the final poll so you can vote for your favorite in the finals. If your pick didn’t make the finals, better luck next year. Here is the final tally for the top 6 finishes.

  1. TFA Luke Skywalker*
  2. Jaina Solo
  3. Mara Jade
  4. Asajj Ventress
  5. Starkiller
  6. Lando Calrissian
Cad Bane

#7 Cad Bane

*NOTE: After being informed of a pending Luke Skywalker release by helpful commenters, we have contacted those running the contest. Since Luke from The Force Awakens is already in line for a release (as is Hera Syndulla), we will be omitting him from the final results. With Cad Bane, Kyle Katarn, HK-47, and General Grievous tied for 7th place, we went to twitter for an hour lightning round to determine a victor. Cad Bane has emerged victorious and will be submitted as the last selection as an alternate to Luke (Kyle Katarn has received more votes overall, but by the time we sent the results to Hasbro, Cad Bane was the winner).

So the final list we submitted to Hasbro is:

  1. Jaina Solo*
  2. Mara Jade
  3. Asajj Ventress
  4. Starkiller
  5. Lando Calrissian
  6. Cad Bane

Runners up:

  • Kyle Katarn
  • HK-47
  • General Grievous

*2ND NOTE: The vote for Jaina Solo came later in the contest as several bursts of comments at the same time. We checked the commenters and they are all legit. There was probably an organized event, but still the votes count.

Also the winner of a 6” Black Series figure of his/her choosing is user Pi, who commented in our poll. We will contact him for his prize via the email he used to comment.
