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. Note:
These questions were sent in before Toy Fair, and were originally due back last Friday. The schedule resumes this week with 3 new questions due THIS Friday. So be sure to send them in!Rebelscum: Will the Jedi Knight Army Multipack be re-released one day, perhaps in the course of the Clone Wars series? It is very difficult to get, very rare, therefore I'd like to see a re-release.Hasbro:
We do not have any plans to re-release that multi-pack at this time.Rebelscum: My question will we see a new figure representing 750th or some landmark number like that soon?? And how would you come up with the numbering system. I know that you only number by single carded figures but with the success of the Greatest hits and Saga legends. Most of these are straight repacks while others were in battle packs, vehicles, or just slightly retooled figs. And if I could make a suggestion if one of these special figures will be made soon a two pack of Luke and Leia in the famous pose from the original poster art. Hasbro:
We have yet to stop and take tally of where the exact figure number stands, and the counting is kind of murky, but you are right there is probably a significant milestone coming up. In any case, we wouldn't count the straight repacks of Greatest Hits and Saga Legends among the numbering; in our book, they don't advance the number of brand new figures, but keep them active much as figures were kept active in vintage Kenner days with refreshes from Star Wars to TESB to ROTJ. That poster pose would be interesting to do someday, but we don't have plans for it right now.Rebelscum: When and if will we see the rest of the council members made in a single pack. Figures like Even Peill, Depa Billaba, Adi Galia and even Oppo Rancisis. We have had the likes of Eeth Koth and Yareal Poof which were fantastic, but I think the last couple need to also have the opportunity to have the soft goods and lightsabers added so the die hard MOC collecotrs can complete there own councils. Thanks.Hasbro:
That is an interesting question, and one that we have looked at with the repaint/repack waves we have done at various times. Some of them could use updating, but right now we don't have any plans to get them back out there any time soon in single carded format (or any other format either). That could always change as these are prime candidates for re-release sometime.
Got any burning Star Wars
