The 30th Anniversary of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is upon us, well almost anyway. To celebrate the movie’s birthday in 2013 Hasbro is working with Star Wars Insider Magazine to give fans the chance to pick one of their favorite characters from the Star Wars franchise to be immortalized as one of the company’s 2013 line of Star Wars action figures.
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 action figure to be created will be decided on solely by this poll so you truly do have a say in what character will be on your shelf next to the Darth Vader head banks and the Luke Skywalker 12 incher that’s missing the light saber because your dog got hungry one day.

Voting ends at midnight December 1st, 2011.
May the force be with you.
