Hasbro's Star Wars Saga Legends Spring 2008 Fans' Choice Vote!
September 7, 2007

Hasbro’s Star Wars Saga Legends Fan Voting will be live on starwars.hasbro.com this weekend!  Voting will be live by 5 PM EST today, if not earlier.

We want your votes!  Phase 1 is now complete; Star Wars collector-fan sites around the Web have told Hasbro which characters they want to see brought back as Saga Legends in ‘08.  Now Hasbro’s asking the fans to place a final vote for their favorite 3-3/4" figures that they want to see as part of the final Saga Legends wave in Spring 2008!  

The top 20 are below, and from these your readers and fellow fans can vote for up to 5 figures.  Voting will run for 14 days, and the top 5 vote-getters will become Saga Legends!
# Figure  
1 – ARC Trooper (Clone Wars) red & gray #43 (Saga)  
2 – Bespin Guard (Power of the Jedi)  
3 – Chewbacca (Early Bird kit)  
4 – Clone Trooper (Treachery on Saleucami 2007 exclusive)  
5 – Clone Trooper Pilot w/ball turret (Saga ’02 #49)  
6 – Coleman Trebor (Saga)  
7 – Colonel Wulf Yalaren (Death Star Briefing Room 2006 exclusive)  
8 – Commander Neyo (Treachery on Saleucami 2007 exclusive)  
9 – Covert Ops Clone Trooper (2005 exclusive)  
10 – Ephant Mon (Saga)  
11 – Graxol Kelvyyn (Watto’s Box)  
12 – Gungan Warrior (Fambaa set exclusive)  
13 – Pablo-Jill (EpIII/OTC bridge line)  
14 – R3-A2 (Battle of Hoth multi-pack)  
15 – Shadow Stormtrooper (2006 exclusive)  
16 – Sio Bibble (Episode I)  
17 – Stormtrooper (Vintage OTC)  
18 – Utapau Shadow Trooper (2007 exclusive)  
19 – Zev Senesca (Snowspeeder Pilot)  
20 – Zutton (Blue Snaggletooth)

NOTE:  There are TWO list changes from last week.  The major one is the removal of Han Solo (VOTC) from eligibility because there is a high likelihood that he will be used in another set and will not be available.  Instead, the next highest-rated figure, R3-A2 from the Battle of Hoth mullti-pack.  The Bespin Guard listing has been corrected – it is not possible to vote for "black ethnicity" since no such figure was released.  Instead, the listing will be corrected to say "Bespin Guard (Power of the Jedi)"

May the Force be with you…

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
