2007 Q&A Session With Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team Round 7
Jay Cochran - July 20, 2007
Here is a new round of Q&A from Hasbro's Star Wars brand team. Now every other Friday, Jedi Insider will be able to submit 3 questions for the Hasbro's Star Wars brand team. They will make their best effort to answer each question we send in.
JI: Why didn't the VTAC Bespin Luke come with a lightsaber hilt and place to put it on his belt?
Hasbro: That would have been cool, but we weren't actually designing the figure to match the packaging reference (on the card artwork, he's shown with the hilt hanging from his belt). Instead, we designed what we thought was a good complete figure as specified. That's a good idea to add on if we use the figure tool again.
JI: Will we ever see a re-release of the Toys R Us exclusive Anakin and Obi-Wan Jedi Starfighters with the blue & green color schemes?
Hasbro: Yes, our plan is to bring this into the 85196 Starfighter Vehicle Assortment, for a national release, early in 2008. Look for them in approximately January. Unlike the previous exclusive runs, these will be closed box and will not come with pilot figures.
JI: The Republic Gunship had been put out under many different colors/designs, and under the AOTC, Clone Wars, and ROTS lines. Any chance we will be seeing this ship again any time soon (especially since you are going
to re-release the 'Hunt for Grievous' pack)?
Hasbro: We don't have any plans for a new or re-released Gunship this year, but
there always remains the possiblity that a new version could be produced for Clone Wars. As we see more episodes, we'll have a better idea of how prominent it will be (if at all) and look for opportunities to get it back out there. It certainly is a fantastic ship.
