Toyworld Magazine has published an interesting survey about what toy companies in the UK think about the current situation of licensed toys in the UK. Of special interest was how they view the collaboration with licensors. And while this is UK specific it’s certainly applicable to other countries as well. And there is even info about Disney hidden in the survey that should be of special interest to all of us. Also, the toy companies say how they really feel about embargos. So click through to find out how happy toy companies in the UK are about licensors!
Data scientist Mark White has set up a Star Wars survey that wants to examine what both casual and hardcore fans think about the Star Wars franchise. This survey is not linked to Lucasfilm or any other company, rather, it’s a side project of Mark’s, who is a Star Wars fan himself.
The survey takes about 10 minutes. You will be asked about your opinion on the movies, the characters (and where applicable you get to choose how much you like the same character in the OT, PT or ST), there are also some political questions. Mark promised to share the results with us. I believe this survey could provide us with a very interesting snapshot of the current state of Star Wars fandom. The last scientific Star Wars survey I know of is from December 2017 (by Morning Consult), before The Last Jedi was released. This new survey can give us an important update, especially in light of what happened after The Last Jedi. So I ask you to please take the time for the survey! Also, you are encouraged to share the link, so as many people as possible can take it.

Digital photo site Shutterfly asked more than 1,000 people for a representative survey what defining movie of the 2010s they would put in a time capsule to conserve for posterity. And the winner with the most votes: The Force Awakens. But when you look at the details of the results an interesting trend can be seen that should be cause for alarm for Disney.

Star Wars is a global phenomenon. And it has always been quite popular across Western Europe, Japan and Australia. Therefore, it might be interesting for people in the USA to learn what people in other countries such as Germany actually think about Star Wars and who the fans are. The SINUS Institute and YouGov conducted a representative Star Wars survey in Germany and published their results on May 4th.

Once again, thank you to everyone who participated in the Jedi Temple Archives Reader Survey. We received some incredible feedback from you! We are now going to look at the analyzed data in each of the 25 questions in the survey. You will be able to see the results of each question, a sampling of other readers’ anonymous direct free form comments and feedback, as well as our interpretation of the data and what we’re going to do to change or improve the topic at hand here at Jedi Temple Archives.We will provide a Summary, an Aim, and a Response to Feedback for every question we asked you. First up!
The response to the Jedi Temple Archives Reader Survey has significantly exceeded our expectations. There’s an incredible amount of great feedback we received from everyone and we will be sharing the results shortly. We are simply overwhelmed with how many of you took the time to add the free form comments. There is a great to deal to digest (which we’re extremely thankful for – that’s not a complaint).
We had only set up this survey to accommodate 3% of our daily visits (what our traditional participation experiences have been in the past). But we are nearly quadrupling that participation percentage unexpectedly already. The long story short is that there are only about 100 spots left to take this survey and provide your feedback. The survey is probably going to end before the planned August 31st date. We feel strongly that we have a tremendously fair sampling of opinions already, but it you want to leave your own personal responses, please act now. Thank you to EVERYONE who has already participated. We look forward to doing what we can to make Jedi Temple Archives better for everyone.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: THE SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION!
