While this is definitely wishful thinking, I would love to see them offer up box sets dedicated to Knights of the Old Republic just like they're going to be doing with The Force Unleashed this spring.

There were so many great characters from that first KotOR game:

  • Bastila
  • Carth Onasi
  • Mission Vao
  • Canderous Ordo
  • Zaalbar
  • Jolee Bindo
  • Juhani
  • T3-M4
  • Saul Karath
  • Darth Bandon
  • Calo Nord

and then from KotOR II, there are even more:

  • Kreia
  • Bao-Dur
  • Visas Marr
  • Brianna (The Last Handmaiden)
  • Atton  Rand
  • Mira
  • Darth Sion
  • Atris
  • Mandalore

Surely there are enough characters there to fill two box sets, they could also throw Malak, Reven, Nihilus, HK-47 and HK-50 in them just to help keep the developement costs of the sets down.

I'm pleased with the choice of Bastila as the winner.  KOTOR has a really big fan base and I can definitely get behind this particular figure.  But with what may be a moratorium on the EU, I have to wonder how Bastila will be offered and when.

As for the runners up?  I was glad to see some strong support for Jocasta Nu.  Despite Hasbro's objections to making her, she got the second most votes in the poll.  I certainly hope this makes Hasbro rethink their stance on her.

I was definitely surprised to see Jaxxon in the top 5.  But then, according to my interview with Toyfare they said that there was a big drop off in voting between #4 and #5.

Jaxxon made the Top 5!  Holy crap!

Bastila is a great choice and one that I'm surprised Hasbro didn't explore earlier, especially given the HUGE popularity (and secondary market prices) for Revan and Malak.

REBELSCUM has gotten a hold of Toyfare issue #151 a day early, and have revealed the winner of the 2009 Fan's Choice Poll.  And the winner is?

BASTILA SHAN - Knights Of The Old Republic video game

Personally I was hoping for Kidster!  :P

I voted for Cane Adiss.  I'd imagine he'd be among the least likely to be produced—expensive to make, hard to package, obscure character—so I wanted to show my support.

As for who will actually win, I really have no clue.  Probably one of the EU characters.
