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: Now that the Fan's Choice winner(s) are revealed (Quinlan Vos #1, Darth Revan #2), can we find out how the rest of the Top 25 characters ranked? Many fan favorites (cough, cough--Willrow Hood--cough, cough) did not make the cut this time, and we're all curious to see the final standings. BTW, we'd love to see more figures from that top 25 list in the future! Make 'Em All!

Hasbro: Toy Fare has plans to go into more detail on the rank order of the Top 25 so we'll let them run with it. All of the figures on the Top 25 were good candidates for figures in the future (yes, including Willrow and Yarna!) so we wouldn't rule it out eventually covering them over the next few years.
Dan's note: ToyFare has indeed revealed the official rankings. Click here for more.

Rebelscum: Will the Titanium Series line continue in 2007? If so, is there any chance of there being any Expanded Universe vehicles, like the Eclipse, the Outrider, or the Inferno, made in the Titanium Series line? Or will this line only consist of movie vehicles?

Hasbro: Yes it will continue into 2007. Stay tuned in terms of vehicles to come, but there will be movie & non-movie vehicles in the line.

Rebelscum: Which courses and type of degree would college students have to obtain in order to work for Hasbro and be involved with the decision making of which figures get released, which are new sculpts, repacks, etc.? Many would love to be apart of the Hasbro team, and that would be many fans' dream job.

Hasbro: The Star Wars team (like all brand teams at Hasbro) is guided by a team of marketers and designers. Many of our designers come from industrial design programs from schools such as the University of Cincinnati School of Design, New York Fashion Institute, Rhode Island School of Design, etc. Our marketers typically have an MBA from business school, but not always. In those cases, several years in a relevant field (packaged goods or youth-targeted marketing) is desirable.

Now that information about Celebration Anaheim is coming out, the Probe Droid is curious if you plan on attending the biggest party of 2015...
You couldn't stop me from attending!
I'll thinking about it...
I'm waiting for more news before I decide.
I can't get involved! I've got work to do!
That's your uncle talking.
Nope. I want to but I can't make it work.
No way! Massively cool social events aren't my cup of tea.
