2008 Q&A Session With Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team Round 14

Jay Cochran - August 15, 2008


Hasbro's Star Wars brand team agreed to answer three questions from Jedi Insider fans every other week. Here are this week's questions and answers. This is the 14th round for 2008.


JI: I was always a fan of your Action Fleet line; it provided scale models of most of the vehicles without all the work of painting and gluing a model. Is there any chance of bringing back the Action Fleet line, and if so is there any chance of getting re-releases of some of the later parts of the line, such as the Tie Defender and E-Wing that got very limited releases? Right now they go for over 150 dollars on Ebay.

I am very happy that the titanium line is starting to see releases of more Expanded Universe vehicles, a lot of fans do appreciate it. Especially the Tie Defender that is due out soon. This question comes from JI reader Harkiri.


Hasbro: There is very little chance that Action Fleet as we know it will make a return, only for the fact that the type of play pattern that Action Fleet offers (micro play) has not been a popular scale recently and would probably be merchandised out of the action figure aisle, where our other scales would be more productive. So it remains on the back burner for us. We're glad you like the new Titanium vehicles - there are certainly some great EU ones out there and we hope to keep turning our attention to the best ones still yet to be done.



JI: Yes, I've been debating about this thought and possibility for days. I was just wondering if there was a possibility of Clone Commanders from Episode III being developed into “The Clone Wars” line (i.e. Commander Gree, Commander Bly, etc.?) Because if the Commander Cody character is being developed into a Clone Wars character, wouldn't that mean others would be as well? This question comes from JI reader Alpha77.

Hasbro: Thanks. We have only seen Clone Commander Cody so far, but yes, it's possible that
other EpIII Commanders will appear in The Clone Wars.




JI:On the 'Disturbance at the Lars Homestead' playset that debuted at Comic-Con, is there some other way to access the inside of the house part of the set other then the front door entrance? And is there anything inside the house like a table for Luke and company to sit and discuss things like going off to the academy or staying and working another season on the farm?

Also any plans to offer charred figure versions of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru. So people can re-create the scene from ANH where Luke returns home to find he's been visited by Imperial Stormtroopers?

Hasbro: The only opening is through the front door. Inside, there is a table as well that is a separate part fastened to the base. As for charred versions of Beru and Owen, they certainly are some of the most popular requests we heard at Comic Con, but it hasn't changed our view....we do not plan on releasing these versions.

If you would like to submit a question for Hasbro to answer, then head over to the new JediInsider Forums and post it. We might select it as a question to be asked in a future Q&A. We will be sending in the next batch of question on August 8.

Love it. Who's head is that?

That head is actually a heavily modified 25th Shipwreck.

Wow, nice job with that!

He looks good. And I like the torso. I always imagined him to be thin and lanky. Great job.
