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

Darth Talon


The preliminary results are in and now it’s time for the final round.  Last week we asked you, the readers of SWNN, to give your picks for which characters should be submitted for consideration to be the fan’s choice pick for the next figure in Hasbro’s Black Series line.  And in the end, it seems that a good portion of Star Wars fandom agreed with you.



Although Luke Skywalker from The Force Awakens was the clear winner in our poll, SWNN readers leaned heavily towards the old EU, and it seems you were not alone.  The final six choices were as follows.


  • Starkiller
  • Jaina Solo
  • Darth Talon
  • Captain Rex
  • Dengar
  • Mara Jade


Three of the above could be found in the top four selections here at SWNN, with only Assaj Ventress, Cad Bane, and Lando Calrissian not making the cut from the SWNN final submissions.  The other three finalists, Darth Talon, Captain Rex, and Dengar also appeared in our voting, but none made the final cut.


Old Man Rex
Captain Rex


In early voting, it appears to be a close race with all finalists falling between 12 and 20 percent of the vote tally.  So, no one seems to be running away with the contest early in the game.  Darth Talon leads the race early with 20% while Mara Jade is bringing up the rear at 12%.


Head over to StarWars.com and vote to let your preferences be known.  The poll will stay open until just before the announcement of the winner at Hasbro’s Star Wars panel this Friday (12PM PT) at San Diego Comic-Con.

    I am cool with any of these winning except Dengar. My vote is for Jaina though.

      Why Jaina? It would just be some girl with a lightsaber. What a boring figure that’d be.

        Jaina is an awesome character. Is Luke just some dude with a lightsaber?

          You do have a point there, good sir.

    Time to get those bots up and running again…

      The salt is strong with this one.

    Not interested in any of them.

    I’m intrigued to see how Hasblow would do Talon, since she’s all skimpily dressed and such. If I’m remembering correctly didn’t people complain about the slave Leia? It seems they’d be taking it off shelves pretty quickly due to easily offended sjw types. That being said, the shelves are so poorly stocked, probably never see one. (Fan Fact: My local store hasn’t restocked their Star Wars toys since TFA came out :D) Anyway, my vote is with Starkilla.

      I think the chain around the neck of Leia was what offended people more so than the metal-kini, but you have a point. Darth Talon might just be too hot for the shelves of our local toy stores.

    There are so many amazing creatures and droids (HK, Highsinger, Grievous guard, to name a few) in the Star Wars canon, so it seems unfortunate that these top picks are almost all essentially EU humans with armor, with a Sith babe tossed in. The Star Wars Universe has so many more interesting designs to offer, if you ask me. But then again I’m an industrial designer and hard to please…guess I’m abstaining from this vote and making my own Highsinger!

It seems unfortunate that these top picks are almost all essentially EU humans with armor, with a Sith babe tossed in. EU character designs were often not vetted at the same standard as the films and canon. The prequels may not have been the best but the designs crushed most EU material, IMO. But I digress…guess I’m abstaining from this vote.
