ToyFare #105 is out today, and the Top 25 characters from the first part of the poll have been announced. If you've been following our daily countdown series, you might have spotted some of these characters already. While members of our forums got a sneak peek at the final list over the weekend thanks to a subscriber who got the issue a bit early, here is the official announcement of the top 25 characters YOU voted for!

Anakin Solo - Expanded Universe

Bastila Shan - Knights of the Old Republic

Clone Commander - Revenge of the Sith*

Commander Neyo - Revenge of the Sith

Corran Horn - Expanded Universe

Darth Malak - Knights of the Old Republic

Darth Maul - The Phantom Menace

Darth Nihilus - Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords

Darth Revan - Knights of the Old Republic

Exar Kun - Tales of the Jedi

Quinlan Vos - Star Wars: Republic

Willrow Hood ("Ice Cream Maker Guy") - The Empire Strikes Back

Yarna d'al Gargan - Return of the Jedi

* "Clone Commander" is the name given to this character (officially known as "Galactic Marine") because that is what he is called in the Star Wars: Battlefront II video game. So, it's not really a mistake...from a certain point of view.

For more details on all of these characters, head on over to and get ready to vote for your favorite character that YOU want to see made into an action figure in 2007.

It's interesting to see the number of characters from the Expanded Universe make the list. Perhaps that's something that Hasbro should seriously take a look at...FANS WANT EU FIGURES!

Not all fans of fact, one of our forum members has dubbed the term SWINO (Star Wars In Name Only) when describing the characters not from the movies. No matter where your loyalties lie, be sure to vote for the character YOU want to see made.

Another interesting thing to make note of...the Galactic Marine ("Clone Commander"), Commander Neyo, Hermi Odle, Kir Kanos, Luke Skywalker, and Padmé Amidala (Ilum cold gear) are already on many rumor lists for figures to be made in 2006/2007. So vote accordingly... ;)
