As part of their 2017 Star Wars Fan Figure Vote, Hasbro announced during their Celebration Orlando 2017 panel that the extremely popular 3.75″ The Vintage Collection line will be making its way back to retail store pegs in 2018. I wish I was sitting in that conference room when Hasbro made this announcement to hear the cheers that must have erupted from the audience.
And the first figure revealed in this returning line will be Rey (Jakku) from The Force Awakens (photo credit to @StarWarsJunk).
As revealed today at Hasbro’s Star Wars Celebration Orlando panel, the 3.75-inch Vintage Collection is back in 2018. And they want you to decide which character will be next to join the fan-favorite line!
Kicking off today is Hasbro’s Star Wars Fan Figure Vote, where you’ll get to vote for your favorite hero, villain, droid, or alien that has yet to be made into an action figure. It could be anyone — from Doctor Aphra of Marvel’s comics to Klik-Klak from Star Wars Rebels. (And remember, the world still needs a Kitster action figure!)
First-round voting in Hasbro’s initiative will take place at Star Wars fan sites from today, April 15-April 19; after voting closes, the top picks from each site will be entrants in a final poll at StarWars.com, which will run from April 26-30. The winner will be announced at a later date.
In previous years, Hasbro’s votes have centered on the 6-inch Black Series, and fans’ combined strength brought us amazing figured of Revan from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Sabine from Star Wars Rebels, and more. So remember — if you want a specific figure you’ve been dreaming about in 3-.75-inch scale, let your voice be heard!
