The Results Are In For the 6″ TBS Fans’ Choice Poll

The votes have been tallied! The final list has been submitted to Hasbro to be combined with other fan site selections for the first Fans’ Choice figure poll for the 6″ Black Series. We received 100s of submissions, but in the end, these 6 characters were the selected by you, the fans as the “most wanted”. Watch for the official list to be posted on StarWars.com on July 2.

  • So now we may have Wynona Judd in 6″ form?

  • Bombadgungan

    Well this is not how I was hoping things would turn out. None of my top picks made the final cut. I have been wanting a Snowtrooper in this scale, but really… I expect that one would have been made sooner than later anyway. The Gamorrean Guard will be nice to have, but I would have preferred Jabba’s major domo Bib Fortuna. I imagine ol’ Bib will be lucky to get made whereas the pig guards are a shoe in. I think General Grievous could turn out spectacular if done right, but he wasn’t one I was currently itching for. That is a moot point however, as we already know he is coming. I can’t get too excited over figures from the EU. Mara is nice and I really appreciate Revan’s cool design, but it’s just not my genre.

      mara jade and all the fiasco with the black series figure still seems fresh enough to me and a 6” seems silly to make for that line. im not into EU that much either. but Revan looks pretty cool. not sure id bother with it but its alright if he wins. i choose Obi Wan ep IV as my first choice. it seems fair and makes sense at this point. but will see. the winner is already known id say. ha

  • Bombadgungan

    Where’s Jar Jar?!!

  • Two EU, two PT, two OT…how nice

  • So glad Dooku made your top 6!

    • Mike_5555

      Me too! Even though he is a major character I wouldn’t consider him a lock for the 6″ line. I would love to see him win. It would be a great way to honor Sir Christopher Lee.

      • bobcat

        i thought about adding Dooku just cause he recently passed away, if he didnt die i bet ya he wouldnt be picked. not to be mean but still.

    • Darth Eddie

      I hope they make a 6″ Count Dooku. We didn’t get a Dooku in The Vintage Collection and it would be nice to get an all-new version of the character in stores.

      • Bombadgungan

        We did however get a superb 3 3/4″ Count Dooku in Evolutions and Geonosis Arena 2pks. The Count didn’t make my list for the 6″ line, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think he’d make a great 6″ figure. Pretty essential for any group of AOTC figures.

        • Darth Eddie

          Agreed. Every lineup of characters from Episode II (no matter which scale) should include a Count Dooku figure.

          • Bombadgungan

            Well then… fingers crossed for a Dooku shampoo bottle! LOL!

          • Darth Eddie

            You know something? Even if it’s a 12″ shampoo bottle and he collects dust in stores I’d like to see a new Christopher Lee figure at retail! I like both Lee and Count Dooku that much. =0)

          • Bombadgungan

            Do you own the Count Dooku Fighter Pod figure?

          • Darth Eddie

            No, I don’t have any of the Fighter Pod figures.

  • Rivesjunctionite

    Are EU characters even eligible at this point? I thought “Legends” was off limits.

    • Eligible now per Hasbro’s press release on this poll.

      • Rivesjunctionite

        Thanks, I didn’t read it that carefully. When I saw it was for 6″, I didn’t bother. Not my scale.

  • jdslater

    Looking forward to a Snowtrooper

    • Paulskywalker

      Maybe they’ll make a deluxe one too with a blaster cannon?

      • jdslater

        I would like to see the deluxe set as two snowtroopers with the cannon and tripod and something else.

  • Paulskywalker

    I don’t get why people picked characters that will obviously be made at some point. Least number 1 and 3 are figures that are unlikely to have been made previously.

    • Steve Stuber

      Maybe they voted for figures they want and aren’t fans of Mara Jade or Darths that don’t have the name Sidious, Vader, Maul or Tyranus?

      • Paulskywalker

        I understand that, I just meant that it was more of an opportunity to have got more obscure characters from the movie. My observations on the EU more of a way of saying least the opportunity was not lost. Let’s face it Ben Kenobi and ep4 Leia were on the list and I expect they’ll be made and grievous was already confirmed wasn’t he? Just felt obvious choices were a wasted opportunity.

        • bobcat

          i hear ya on that. i basically picked characters i did want but i also consdiered what they will most likely make. they said all SW figures can be chosen but that doesnt mean they are going to make whatever is chosen. maybe they will ? i dont know. i just picked what seemed most likely/my favourites. maybe that was wrong but i did what i thought was the best option at this point. Hasbro hasnt been the greatest the last while so i took everything into consdieration.

          • Bombadgungan

            I did essentially what you did. I made a list of those characters I most wanted to add to my 6″ collection and then gave precedence to those that I perceived as less likely to be made soon if at all.

          • bobcat

            ya, even the snowtrooper i figured is going to be made cause its a great character look but i didnt care about that..i just want to see that made so i voted regardless of Expanded Universe or any of that. i think Revan is going to win. he does look cool so may the best character win!

    • I understand your frustration, but if we’re honest it was too early to run a Fans’ Choice Poll for the 6″ scale. Collectors, right or wrong, are worried about the characters they haven’t made yet, not what they likely will make. This should have been a 3.75″ poll anyhow. Even I, a fan of OT, would have chosen EU characters before OT since the line is as big as it is.

  • Xo Tica

    All of the top 6 choices for me are great , I would buy all of them
