Hasbro's Star Wars panel during Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 was one of the better Hasbro Star Wars panels in recent history. The Hasbro team celebrated 40 years of Star Wars action figures by taking a look at many never-before-seen concept sketches from the mid 1980's and they revealed many design decisions and thought processes for up-coming Star Wars action figures. The panel ended with the reveal of the return of the 3.75" The Vintage Collection in Spring 2018 and the fan vote campaign.

Below are the results which we'll pass on to Hasbro. Voting will continue on StarWars.com, more details about that soon!
Every person had to type the name of the charcter they wanted to see made into the comments, this helped eliminate multiple "up-votes" on different characters and made it easy to spot multiple entries by the same person.
