Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest 2021 is underway! Hasbro, as we know, is one of the largest toy makers out there. Their product lines cover some of the biggest franchises, too, from Marvel to Star Wars to Transformers. Over the course of the event we expect to see some amazing reveals of toys to come. If you’re a collector of the Star Wars Vintage Collection, however, you’re in for a real treat. At the Premium Member event, the company announced the finalists for the fan’s choice figure. The options did not disappoint.
There will be five figures for which fans can vote. First up is a new version of Ahsoka Tano. The character Ashley Eckstein brought to animated life has become a franchise favorite. So much so, in fact, that Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni carried her forth in live-action (portrayed by Rosario Dawson.) This Star Wars Vintage Collection version from Hasbro Pulse goes back to the animated series The Clone Wars.
Finalists for Hasbro Pulse Star Wars Vintage Collection fan vote
The next two are huge nods to fans of the former Expanded Universe. Have yo ever wanted a Starkiller figure from The Force Unleashed? Well, now’s your chance. He’s among the choices for fans’ selection. Joining him from the EU is also a Republic Commando. That both characters are up for consideration shows just how loved the EU really is. We’d love to see Hasbro Pulse add all of these to the Star Wars Vintage Collection, but alas, only one will make it.
Rounding out the choices are one of the Stromtrooper varients from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and a Weequay from Return of the Jedi. Though they had limited roles in the film, the assault tank drivers certainly had a distincitve look. And who could forget the Weequay responsible for pushing Luke Skywalker into the sarlacc? Any one of them would make a fine addition to the Star Wars Vintage Collection, indeed.
Expect more details on the fan vote as Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest 2021 continues today.
