2007 Q&A Session With Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team Round 3
Jay Cochran - March 16, 2007
We are back after a break during a run of convention coverage with a new round of Q&A from Hasbro's Star Wars brand team. 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 third batch of questions and answers for 2007.
JI: Will the delay of the Star Wars Force Unleashed video game to 2008 have an effect on the relase of the toys based on the game? Click here if you haven't yet seen the toys.
Hasbro: We will be pushing back all of our The Force Unleashed product with the exception of the new Lightsaber with spring-activated hilt guards. We know that the figures that were shown at Toy Fair really whet a lot of appetites, and trust us, they will be worth the wait! In the meantime, the place in the calendar previously marked for the TFU figures will be occupied by wave 8 of the basic figures which had been pushed out to make room for the TFU wave (wave 9). So there won't be any gaps in the delivery of news figures to the shelves late this Fall.
JI: Do you have an image of the TRU exclusive Star Wars Gold Squadron Y-Wing Fighter you can send us?
Hasbro: We don't have an image available yet. We will reveal the Y-Wing (along
with more of our exclusives program) at Celebration IV. Stay tuned!
JI:Celebration 4 is fast approaching. Can you tell us if Hasbro will be offering an exclusive for the event? if so what is it and are their any images?
Hasbro: We will be offering an exclusive figure, but Lucasfilm will be making the official announcement. In addition, the 40-packs of the official Star Wars figure stands will be available for the first time to fans at the event. They will be based on the Saga Collection stands and will be available for $9.99.
