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: We've started to see what appears to be figures from the Empire Strikes Back wave (seemingly slated for early 2009) start to show on retail websites (such as Walmart.com) - can you fill in the blanks on the wave and/or share pictures. It's been a while since we've seen much of anything new directly from you, and instead of letting some other outlet get the jump on you (like Previews did on the upcoming comic packs), perhaps you'd consider showing us this upcoming wave? At minimum can you tell us who the sixth figure is beyond Luke and Leia from the Medical Frigate, the Hoth Rebel Soldier, Captain Needa and the Ugnaught (grumble - at least tell us that there's something coming with the little guy to fill up the bubble a little further!). Time to get rolling on more early 2009 information don't you think?

Hasbro: You have sussed out the entire wave, with two exceptions. The last figure from the wave is a refresh of the Evolution Emperor, with a great new head. The Droid Factory figure is going to be a hot one - the EU favorite HK-47. How's that for some more information? As for photos, we aren't ready to release any photos of this wave yet, but they should be available soon.

Rebelscum: Any chance of seeing a redo on the Titanium series Executor? Preferably one that is very detailed and does not have an Imperial Star Destroyer attached to it.

Hasbro: We do not have plans to redo this one.

Rebelscum: In a recent Q&A you confirmed that a super-articulated Republic Commando figure was coming in a spring 2009 Evolutions pack. Will this figure be a generic white-armored commando, a commando from Omega or Delta Squad (if so, which character?), or a commando of Hasbro's own creation? We Republic Commando fans need something to tide us over for the next few months!

Hasbro: It will actually be one we have not done before - Fi, aka RC-8015, who was associated with Omega Squad. Sweet!
