On Friday, we will tally up the top 10 nominees and send them to Hasbro. Hasbro will then collect each fan site’s top 10 and then host a final fan vote on the Hasbro Pulse Instagram on Monday, February 25th.
Now before you cast your vote, please note that the winning figure will not be a retool of a previously released figure. Below we have provided a list of every Black Series 6″ figure that has been released to-date from The Empire Strikes Back.
