        IMO, Mara Jade being the fan's choice winner is a total waste, and I get the feeling it won by name recognition of fans who aren't collectors and don't realize we have Mara Jade figures already.

        Looks like between the GI Joe Shockwave Hiss tank and the Carbonite set here, I'm going to have a very expensive Comic-Con.

        I don't think they mentioned CW at all in the slideshow, but now begins the media tour of the Hasbro showroom, so Steve will have photos up and hopefully we'll be able to see what's up.

        I should hold my input until I see the pics, but I think the fans wanted something other than a resculpt.

        Weird, Rebelscum said there were three new CW figures shown, Scuba Ahsoka, Phase II Wolffe, and a new SBD.

        I could be mistaken then, I had Steve hitting me up as fast as he could with details, but Hasbro was flying through. I also checked a few other live sites and none of them mentioned them.

        Do they at least know that people want Mara Jade in her green robes, or are we getting the same black jumpsuit they've made twice?

        Pretty sure the image in the poll was of her green robes.

        I think there was something, maybe in the wording of her description, that made it ambiguous.

        According to Rebelscum, the Fan Choice Poll 2nd and 3rd place votes are...

        #2 - Jedi Master Jocasta Nu (Woo Hoo!! - Hope Hasbro will cave and make her now.)
        #3 - Jaxxon (I'm kinda surprised how well he did. They should release him for Easter.)

        #3? AWESOME!

        You might've been kidding, but, since they've done Christmas and Father's Day exclusives (and maybe even Valentine's Day, I don't recall), an Easter exclusive Jaxxon would make perfect sense.

        One of the online comics shows him on a "wanted" poster in the Clone Wars era. Maybe he'll appear on the show eventually.

        I just listened to the audio, they teased the crowd with Jaxxon before revealing Mara Jade Skywalker as the winner. They didn't mention during the panel the others.

        BTW, here are the fruits of that labor: http://www.sirstevesguide.com/conten...Toy-Fair-Event
