Take part in the official Hasbro Fans' Choice poll to decide which Star Wars character will go into production next.

Star Wars Insider magazine and Hasbro have joined forces to give Star Wars fans the chance to vote for a Star Wars character to be made into an action figure. The figure will be included in Hasbro’s Star Wars action figure line in 2013, in time for the 30th anniversary of Return Of The Jedi.
There are twenty Star Wars characters in the running. The winning character will be announced at Hasbro’s 2012 Collector-Fan Media Day event at Toy Fair in New York in February 2012.

The toy that makes it into production will be decided by this poll alone, so this is your chance to stake a claim for the toy that you'd like to own most.

How about pregnant Padmé Amidala with baby? Or that alien fry cook that played an ET version of Huggy Bear to the jedis? How about steampunk Boba?

Let your imagination run wild, dear readers.

“Everybody loves collecting Star Wars and this is a rare chance to vote for a character to be made into an action figure,” Jonathan Wilkins, Star Wars Insider editor told SFcrowsnest. “There are some really diverse characters to choose from; from the movies to the Expanded Universe; from the dreaded Emperor Palpatine to the cute Princess Kneesa. We want as many fans as possible to get involved! Who will you choose? Get voting!”

The poll closes at midnight on December 1st, 2011

To place your vote, visit the Star Wars Insider magazine website at:

Leave your suggestions in the comments field of this article, though, so we can see what kind of characters people are suggesting…
