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

Rebelscum: With the recent release of the numerous TIE Fighter vehicles, is there any chance of getting a new, fully articulated, super-detailed, carded TIE Pilot? I'm sure many fans would like the chance to get a TIE Pilot for their TIE Fighters, as well as to update their older TIE Pilot with a better sculpt. If so, when might we expect this?

Hasbro: We think the most recent TIE Pilot (the one we have included in the most recent releases) is a quality figure, but we acknowledge that fans will want to see a more premium figure (with ball-and-socket articulation) at some point. While we don't have plans right now for another one, we will put it up there on "the list" and look at opportunities as they come up for a new take.

Rebelscum: Some of the most iconic poses in all of the films are on the posters for the films. Has/would Hasbro ever consider releasing battle packs based on the movie posters, preferably with figures able to strike the poses featured on the poster? Many would love to have a Luke that could hold a lightsaber over his head with both hands, for example.

Hasbro: We have looked at the posters for inspiration from time to time. As yet, though, the ideas have taken a back seat to other initiatives like Vintage & Evolutions, since they pretty much occupy the same collector-focused development sphere.

Rebelscum: There are two remaining unproduced Clone Troopers from the Clone Wars cartoon. They are the Clone SCUBA Trooper and Phase II armor Captain Fordo. Will we be seeing either of these anytime soon?

Hasbro: Yes, yes you will. Just how he (and we're not saying which one it is, but it is one of them) will be delivered though remains to be revealed. Stay tuned!
