2007 Q&A Session With Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team Round 11

Jay Cochran - September 28, 2007


Hasbro's Star Wars brand team has agreed to answer three questions from Jedi Insider fans every other week. Here are this week's questions and answers.


JI: (Reader question by boff123) Will you ever make proper gun turrets for the republic gunship (bubbles where the pilots can fit); perhaps in a battle pack?

Hasbro: The challenge is that it's too big and expensive for a basic figure pack-in (or even half of a turret, like we are during with the Destroyer Droid shell). Battle Packs are the more likely possibility, but we haven't slotted it in yet as we have other ideas to get to first. In the future, we would say the chances are very good, but we just haven't slotted this one into the line yet.

JI: (Reader question by JoeDarkfall) I love what you've done with Clone Troopers and Stormtroopers. All the articulation you can ask for (well, except for Commander Baccura/Commander Cody). I have several shelves in my home dedicated to Clones and their Jedi Generals. As well as Stormtroopers snapped at attention for Darth Vader and the Emperor.

So don't you think it's time you start putting a little more attention on our rebel friends? I'd love to have a squad of Rebel Commandos that could stand at attention for General Madine or crouch behind fallen logs. I'd love to have Hoth Soldiers who could toss a grenade, crawl on their belly in a sniper position, or look through a pair of macrobinoculars.

Hasbro: We won't be neglecting our Rebel friends, but it will be gradually over time, similar to the way we introduced the Yavin Sentry earlier this year, and will be coming out with Tycho as A-Wing Pilot that also makes an excellent troop builder a little later. We have some cool figures planned for the next couple of years as well that we will reveal over time. Hang in there....your patience will be rewarded.

JI: Images of a Target Exclusive 'Battle of Hoth' Ultimate pack recently hit the net. Can you give us official details on this, like the price, when it will be released and maybe some official photos?

Hasbro: No comment.
