2008 Q&A Session With Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team Round 1

Jay Cochran - January 18, 2008

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. This is the first round for 2008.

JI: What can you tell us about "Captain Rex"? We hear he is going to be a mail-away figure this year. Who is he, what role in Clone Wars does he play and what does he look like?

Hasbro: Jay - all good questions which will be revealed in time. We will say that he is a central figure in the new Clone Wars series, and that there will be a special promotion so fans can get him first.

JI: Will Star Wars/Transformers continue in 2008 and if so, any hints as to what we might see?

Hasbro: You bet. Up next are a pair of redeco/slight retools for this Spring, including a maroon Obi-Wan/Episode II Starfighter with hyperspace ring and Clone Pilot/Clone Wars Republic Gunship.

JI: Any chance of seeing playsets or any large vehicles released in 2008? If so, can you give us some hints as to what they might be?

Hasbro: Regarding playsets, our stance has not changed..kid demand is still low for playsets, and they do not justify the extraordinary cost to develop and produce. Our focus will remain on vehicles as the natural extension of the 3-3/4" figure play pattern. There will be a "big" announcement at Toy Fair regarding a new vehicle for Clone Wars....stay tuned.
