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: Are there any plans to release battle packs of Order 66 and the execution of the Jedi, like maybe a 4 pack with Obi-Wan, Commander Cody, and 2 Utapau troopers or 1 and a Parjai? Something similiar for other scenes, like a Yoda, Chewbacca, Gree, and Elite corps trooper? You get the idea. Because that would be a super-cool and fast army builder set. Call it "Order 66", or "Rise of the Empire" or something flashy. The kids will love it. Hasbro:
This is definitely a strong theme and some of our Battle Packs have had (and will have) this kind of structure. We know that the Jedi/Clone cooperaton/betrayal leader/troop dynamic lends itself to some interesting possibilities, and will be a focus of some of our products in 2007. Stay
tuned....Rebelscum: With all the recent holographic figures that have been released recently (Emperor Palpatine, Princess Leia, Yoda, Emperor Palpatine, Plo Koon, Aayla Secura, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Darth Maul, Commander Cody (upcoming), and Obi-Wan Kenobi (upcoming)), where's Darth Vader?? He has more screen time as a hologram that any other character, except for the Emperor. Might we see this figure one day? If so, which Vader figure would you likely use as the base? Maybe an all-new sculpt?Hasbro:
This is a good suggestion, and we don't know why we haven't slotted in Vader for this unique treatment. We do know that we want to be careful how many we do and how much of each holographic figure that we do (they are some of the smaller run figures we do), but Vader is a great candiate the next time we do one. Which sculpt should we use? Thanks for the suggestion.Dan's note:
Let's find out what the fans think. Which sculpt would be best for a Holographic Darth Vader? Head on into our forums
and discuss amongst your fellow collectors.Rebelscum: Will there be new versions of Jar-Jar Binks or Episode I Anakin released anytime in the near future, or are these characters considered too unpopular to bother doing again? Hasbro:
Definitely not too unpoular, just in a holding pattern until we find an opportunity to update them or a way to get them into a multi-figure set.
