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 eighth round for 2008.
: Any chance of getting an Episode 1 Senate Guard figure using the Revenge Of the Sith Senate Guard/Royal Guard body?
Hasbro: That is a good idea for a future figure. At this time, we don't have this one slotted into the line but will put it in the "parking lot" for a down-the-road wave. Thanks.
: With the upcoming "Droid Factory" line coming out soon, are there any plans to expand this idea beyond just Protocol and Astromech droids? Any chance of bringing back the actual "Droid Factory" playset in some shape or form in the future?
Hasbro:We use the term protocol and astromech for the general shape and part count of the droids we'll be featuring. We plan to work in the 4-piece and 6-piece model for the pack-ins, and don't have plans to go to much larger or funkier droid models. While the astromech droids are going to be a staple for roughly every other wave, running the range from R2 to R7 units, the "protocol" slots will vary. It won't always be C-3PO-type or RA-7 type figures, but will include other humanoid types (arms, legs, torso, head). We have lined up some *very* cool droids that have never before been produced, some of whom have been drawn from EU source material and lined up to anchor the Droid Factory waves. As for bringing back the vintage Droid Factory, it's an interesting idea, but we don't have any plans to go back to those vintage tools. The aesthetics just don't match what we hope to accomplish with the line these days.
: When will official images of the BMF Falcon
, be released for all to see?
Hasbro: Detailed shots will be forthcoming in our scheduled debut stores and Republic News Posts.
