As part of Hasbro's new weekly Q&A session, Rebelscum passed on 3 of your burning questions and now we've got the answers for you.

Rebelscum: Have you ever considered offering packs of guns or lightsabers for replacements? Lightsabers especially are easy to break or lose. Specifically saber hilts that were released with specific jedi and troops in accessory packs would be nice.

Hasbro: Dan - unfortunately, this is much more complicated for us than it sounds since the weapons tools are scattered all over and matched with the figures. It is a very tall logistics order for us and our factories. If we figure out a way to do it where it makes sense, we'll look at it.

Rebelscum: Has there been any consideration to making a set of the 9 holographic Dejarik creatures in 3" format? Can you make multi-colored holographic figures? They would be out of scale to the other 3" figures but they would be very cool all the same.

Hasbro: On the surface, this is a cool idea. But these, especially in the 3-3/4" format, would be a very niche product too far removed from recognizeable, more in-demand figures. So it'll remain a distant "what if."

Rebelscum: How about Pilot/Astromech two-packs from the Battle of Yavin? For example:

Wedge and his droid (red on silver dome, has yet to be named)
Porkins and R5-D8
Garvin Dreis and R5-K6
Luke and a new R2-D2 with dome attachment (manipulator arm)
...or any of the other pilots.


Hasbro: That is a cool idea and we have considered it, but just have not found the place to slot something like this in the mix.
