Hasbro is thrilled to announce that they’ll be launching the Star Wars The Black Series 6" Fan’s Choice Poll again this year and they would love for you to be a part of it. Last year, fans from all over were able to cast their vote on the Star Wars character they wanted to be transformed into a Hasbro Black Series 6-inch figure – and it was a huge success, creating TWO new additions to the line (Sabine Wren and Darth Revan). They need the fans’ help again this year, and they’re hoping you’ll join us in hosting the poll!

To vote for your The Black Series 6" figure choice, simply nominate a candidate by typing the name of the character you want in the comments thread below. If your choice is already listed by someone else, simply use the up arrow to show your support for that character. Do not post duplicate entries as they will be deleted. Likewise, do not comment on any choices or about this poll in general (All non-vote comments WILL BE DELETED to keep the comments on task). Otherwise, we'll run out of room too quickly. Save that for another thread.
The nomination process will run through Friday, July 8th at midnight. Continue to up-vote other candidates you'd like to support as well during this process.
On July 9th at midnight the nomination process will end and then you'll only be able to up-vote candidates through the remainder of the poll which will end 9 AM on July 11th.
You MUST be a registered Disqus user to participate this year. NO GUEST VOTES will be counted in the final tally. Similarly, "down arrow: votes will count TOWARDS the character's final tally. Hasbro wants to ensure that you're only voting once per fan site. Registering for Disqus is simple, please take the moment to register.
The poll/voting will close at 9 AM EDT on July 11th here at JTA. We will then calculate the responses and submit our top six choices to Hasbro by 1 PM EDT the same day.
We wanted our poll here at JTA to be transparent to all so that it was clear who the true winners will be.
Please follow the rules and make this a great success for all involved. Thank you!
Your friends at JTA
