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. Keep in mind, these questions were submitted before Comic-Con.

Rebelscum: As you know, there are only 3 remaining unmade droids from the Purchase of the Droids scene from ANH: the multi-armed WED Septoid droid, the black domed LIN droid and the small green domed 2X-7KPR droid. What are their chances for being made, and is the Septoid droid even possible due to the small arms? (should be possible after the size of FX-7's arms!)

Hasbro: Stay tuned. We really like Droids too, and this iconic scene, but won't do them all at once.

Rebelscum: In an earlier question, you blamed soft sales for the absense of vehicles and subsequent focus on figures in the Galactic Heroes line. If my memory serves me correctly, since the Playskool line was re-launched as Galactic Heroes, there has not been one single "new" vehicle introduced outside of EU kit-bashed contraptions. Have you completely written off the possibility of testing a "new" movie version of a Galactic Heroes ship given the current popularity and exposure of the line (which far exceeds the Playskool launch w/vehicles)? Or can we still hold out hope the little guys will have something besides a small handful of aging ships to climb into in the not-too-distant future? Something like the TIE Fighter or AT-AT w/exclusive figure pack-ins would compliment existing sets nicely and have broad appeal.

Hasbro: That is true, but given their iconic nature of the MF and X-Wing, we expected them to do better. What it points to is that kids did not embrace vehicles, which was a surprise given the apparent kid appeal of the line. We won't rule out vehicles at some point, perhaps with animation, but for now we will not be pursuing the introduction of vehicles because it appears vehicles appeal to a very small subset of the GH consumers.

Rebelscum: I've really grown to like the little figure stands that are shipping with the current figures, each being embossed with the particular movie logo the character is from. What are the chances that these movie specific bases might be available for mail order from the website in the future, even if the bases have no character name? Maybe even a Jedi Points reward type item?

Hasbro: The easiest thing for us to do would be a multi-pack with all movies (say a 30-pack with 5 of each film). Would people want an EU base in it too?
