2007 Q&A Session With Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team Round 2

Jay Cochran - January 26, 2007

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 each question we send in.

Here are the second batch of questions and answers for 2007.

JI: With all the Super-Articularted (SA) clones being released, there's a significant lack of rifles for clone armies. Has Hasbro considered a weapons pack of rifles and other assorted clone gear to help clone army builders?

Hasbro: We have heard fans, and we are considering this for a future year. What would fans ideally like to see in such a pack?

Editors Note: Well Hasbro is asking you, so head over to our FORUMS and let them know.

JI: The Target Exclusive Imperial Shuttle seems to have gone over quite well. Is there a chance we could see new large vehicles as limited time offer retailer exclusives in the future?

Hasbro: The recent success of the 3-3/4" high-price vehicles has certainly helped the case for the potential success of larger (more expensive) vehicles down the road. However, we won't commit to anything right now because
it's still very far from when we'd introduce anything new that is larger than our $20 assortment, and also because things have a way of changing. But know that larger vehicles are on our radar and we consider them an important part of the Star Wars 3-3/4" play pattern.

JI:Will we see new comic packs in 2007 after thr first wave? Any clues on what we will see? Will they always be based on old Marvel Comics, or will we see some based on Darkhorse Comic titles?

Hasbro: Jay - thanks for the question. There will be at least 15 comic 2-packs on the shelves this year, and judging by the early fan reaction, they can't wait to see more. This validates our assumption that delivering two figures (some new, most always refreshed) with a great story is something that fans and kids want to see. The second wave won't be on shelf until about April, and consists of Quinlan Vos & Vilmarh Grahrk from Star Wars #19, Republic #55 with Obi-Wan and Alpha, and Star Wars #4 (Marvel) with Luke and R2-D2. About 25% of the comics this year will be Marvel-derived and the balance will be Dark Horse.
