StarWars.com Team | October 21, 2011

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.

“Everybody loves collecting Star Wars and this is a rare chance to vote for a character to be made into an action figure, says Jonathan Wilkins, Star Wars Insider editor. “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? You can read more about the history of the fan poll in the latest issue of Star Wars Insider, out now! Get voting!”

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

Starlog‘s Final Entry

Pete Vilmur | April 13, 2009

img200.jpg

The magazine that many of us old-school fans grew up with and geeked out over since the early days of Star Wars fandom has sadly folded, but will continue exclusively as an online publication. Here’s the report from EW.com:

Long before Entertainment Weekly, or Aintitcoolnews.com, or podcasts, Twitter feeds, blogs or THE INTERNET ITSELF, Starlog Magazine was in the business of covering all things geek. Spurred on by the popularity of the Star Trek conventions that cropped up in the wake of the classic series’ cancellation, editor Kerry O’Quinn and publisher Norman Jacobs launched Starlog in August of 1976. And after 33 years and 374 issues, Starlog is officially calling it quits, continuing for the time being as an online-only publication.

So long, Starlog — it’s been quite a ride. Check out the full story here.
