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: The Saga Legends has been very popular with kids and obviously it's a great way to re-release troops for army-builder collectors without huge costs for you....but can we change the line-up a bit? How about adding different troopers like the Utapau Clone Trooper or Jet Trooper from Battlefront II? Also, please replace Saesee Tiin and Plo Koon with other characters...like maybe Pablo-Jill, or dare I say it....Ephant Mon!Hasbro:
Done, done, and done..except for the Jet Trooper (who remains in the uber-popular TRU-exclusive Battlefront packs) and Pablo-Jilla and Ephant Mon. The line will continue to have a good mix of popular figures and troopers, but we will stay away from the more obscure figures because the limited number of slots we have for this line really need to work for us.Rebelscum: Forget about Death Star Luke...what about poor "Corran Horn". Is it possible to revisit this character? Corran wore a Green flightsuit, or Green Jedi Robes, not an orange outfit. His Jedi robes are also very similar to Ki-Adi-Mundi, so it's possible to revisit one of his earlier figures for a Jedi Master Corran Horn. Any thoughts on this? While the existing figure is a nice X-Wing pilot figure, that's NOT Corran Horn. (and we won't even mention "Whistler") Hasbro:
We have heard the fan comments on Corran Horn, and while we insist that the figure is based on good reference, we acknowledge that he's not the coloration that most fans associate with him. That said, we are slowing down a bit with EU, and so will have fewer chances to bring EU figures out for 2010. It's possible we revisit him after 2010, given his popularity, but it may be a while.Rebelscum: The Comic Packs of Camie & Fixer and Noghri Warrior & Ralrra are still generating some buzz with fans. While we know there's a delay with their release, is there any way we can see new pictures of them? It could help keep the interest alive!Hasbro:
The Empire Darklighter pack with Camie and Fixer will be coming as a convention exclusive set next year, and we should have pictures at Toy Fair. The Heir to the Empire pack with Noghri and Ralrra does not currently have a home; right now it might become a Convention exclusive in 2011. As such, we won't be releasing any pics until it gets closer to reality.
