As part of Hasbro's tri-weekly Q&A session, Rebelscum passed on 3 of your burning questions and now we've got the answers for you. Rebelscum: I know it's been stated already that we won't be seeing any realistic style versions of characters from the Clone Wars animated series. But now we've seen a picture of what appears to be a prototype for an incredible realistic style Clone Wars Anakin. Will this figure be released at some point? It's such a great-looking potential figure! Please?Hasbro:
We have no plans to produce realistic versions of the Animated Clone Wars characters. Those images are from the very first treatments we did of the figures back in Fall 2006, to show Lucasfilm the figure aesthetics that we proposed pursuing. The sculpts consisted of a dead match for the original Animated Clone Wars Anakin proportions, what a "realistic" take on the figure would look like, and a hybrid that adopted more of the realistic proportions with the animated look, which became the one approved to go forward. Part of the challenge with the original proportions was that the limbs were very thin, making it difficult to incorporate the desired articulation, necessitating the suggested hybrid.Rebelscum: will Titanium fans see these five ships/vehicles in 2009?
Asajj Ventress' Fanblade starfighter
I and many others would love to see all these! By the way, thank you so much for all the new molds in 2008...Great job Hasbro! I would also like to know the Republic Carrier you mention for 2009, is that the CR-20 Republic carrier from the first Clone Wars animations or is it the NU-Class Attack Shuttle from the Clone Wars movie. (Heck, why not both?)Hasbro:
We were referring to the Attack Shuttle from the new Animated Clone Wars. None of the vehicles you ask about are in the 2009 line plan, but we are looking at some of these as potential new vehicles for 2010. There are a bunch of new vehicles we'd like to do, and as usual, only so many slots for "new" that we will actually be able to do. In any case, we think what we have coming down the road will be very exciting. Stay tuned!Rebelscum: I was wondering if you had any updates on some figures that you've already confirmed for us, like if they'll be in comic packs, basic figure line, Evolutions, when they'll be released...pictures if possible! ;)
3. Exar Kun
4. Kyle Katarn
5. Vong WarriorHasbro:
Sorry, we do not have any pictures for you. Kyle Katarn and Yuzhong Vong, from Star Wars Tales
21, will be up first in a Spring 2009 comic pack, followed a wave later by both a Luke/Lumiya pack and an Exar Kun/Ulic Qel-Droma pack. K'Kruhk will not see his debut until very late 2009 in the last basic figure wave of the year, which should tell you the theme of that wave.
