We are excited to invite you and your readers to participate in Hasbro’s Star Wars 2008 Saga Legends Fans’ Choice Vote!
We want your votes! Hasbro is looking for a final 5-6 figures that will round out the Saga Legends line, and which will be on shelf approximately March 2008. All Star Wars fansites that have been regular contributors to the semi-weekly Star Wars Q&A are welcome to send us their top 10 list of figures they would like to see us re-release.
Fansites can determine these 10 any way they prefer, either by polling their readers or some other method. The figures need to be in rank order of importance from 1-10.
All site top 10 lists need to be received by Friday August 17th... The following Monday, all the lists will be combined together (each website getting an equal voice) with the #1 figure on each list worth 10 points, the #2 figure worth 9 points, #3 worth 8 points, etc. The resultant point values will be used to generate one final Top 20 list which will then be posted to Hasbro.StarWars.Com for netwide fan voting through the end of August.
Figures ineligible for Saga Legends voting consideration
Ineligible: Any figures that have been used for exclusives or mainline sets from March 2007 or later (or previous exclusives whose retailer is still stocking them). This means that figures from sets such as the McQuarrie convention exclusives, Order 66 2-packs, Tusken Raiders, Mandalorian packs, Battlefront II packs, AT-RT Patrol, 181st Tie Interceptor Pilot, ARC-170 Battle Pack, Lucas Family pack, Stealth Scout Trooper, Felucia Battle Pack, Ambush on Ilum Battle Pack, Clone Attack on Coruscant Battle Pack, the Hunt for Grievous Battle Pack, Kir Kanos/Carnor Jax comic pack, 2007 vintage assortment, and other upcoming sets are ineligible. Some figures will not be eligible because tooling is not available at the time due to their use in upcoming products. This includes any figures from the previous (2005) Evolution packs among others that may not be available.
Eligible: All other 3-3/4" figures that were either released as basic figures, Vintage figures, vehicle drivers, or released as part of a multi-figure set prior to March 2007. Exclusives and other sets whose figure are eligible for consideration include Republic Commandos, Death Star Briefing Room, the Saga Tins, Zev Senesca, the figures from the Toys R 'Us AT-AT, and the like. Pretty much all other figures are fair game!
Use this thread to list the top 3 figures you would most like to see rereleased/repackked by Hasbro, numbered 1 - 3. Next Saturday (8/11/07), we will tally the results and place the 10 most popular choices in an online poll for you to vote on. The final results will be sent to Hasbro on Aug 17th.
