January 13, 2010 on 4:45 pm | In Uncategorized | 9 Comments

The fans have spoken! The winner of the latest Hasbro/ToyFare Fan’s Choice Poll was exclusively reported in ToyFare #151, on sale today. It’s been picked up and reported around the Net right now, but if you’d like the answer, plus an EXCLUSIVE ranked list of the rest of the poll, read on…
Still here?

Okay, the winner is…Bastila Shan!

The double-bladed lightsaber wielder from the video game Knights of the Old Republic was the poll winner, as well as the Fan’s Choice figure (unlike the last poll we ran, where the clear winner – Quinlan Vos – was already in production, making the runner-up – Darth Revan – the official Fan’s Choice figure).

Now, exclusive to FarePlay, here’s the entire breakdown of the Top 30, along with the percentage of the vote that they got.

1) Bastila Shan 10.6%
2) Jocasta Nu 10%
3) Darth Caedus  8%

  3. Yes, here’s hoping Hasbro tries to make ALL of these top 30 figures for the fans… it was a lot of work for the sites to put together this top 30 list.

    The top 5 would all be absolutely great choices for Hasbro to make, but so would all 30. New figures like this would really reinvigorate the line!

    Oh yes they do! Revan and Malak were impossible to find, and death star Luke? Yarna? The thousanth Boba Fett? I don’t think so. It’s the ones from the movies that rot. So think before you speak D**che.

  6. Bastila Shan, dudes this is not Star wars, I don’t care if she was on a game, I don’t care about games, and this Bastilla Shan like this guys say, will just rot at the stores.

  7. Mutt, Revan and Malak were shortpacked because hasbro knew they werent going to sell well and only you expanded video game pukes would buy em, and congrats all 5 of you did. Now I dont know whats with hasbro coming up with all these versions of old characters, and it’s their fault for cramming them down stores throats… They want to sell (but unfortunately they dont know how) and not please inconsequential turds like you

  8. KOTOR, Dark Forces, and The Force Unleashed toys sold really well. Shadows of the Empire was the only line that didn’t fare so well, and even then it was mostly just Xizor warming pegs. You ask me, Jocasta Nu will only get bought up by collectors and then clog shelf space. Who wants an old lady toy? Even one with a lightsaber? Nu is about as exciting as Shmi, Beru, Breha, and Yarna.

  9. “This is why we’ll never everyone from the movies released!” – GOOD. Do we really need figures for every movie extra who just stood around in the background doing nothing?

    And we’ll never get figures for every movie character anyway because George Lucas has declared some of them to be permanently off-limits.
