So many questions, so little space... Many other Star Wars collecting sites also submitted questions you need answered, so if you want to know the latest answers from this week's Hasbro Star Wars Weekly Q&A Session, here's a handy guide to help you get all the info.



From Action Figs:
1) Will there be more Evolutions figure sets?

2) Will we be seeing more Beast/Creature assortments in the foreseeable future?

3) What are you doing to remedy case assortment problems such as egwarmers like Yoda and Poggle and Bren Derlin, as well as hard to find figures like 1-per-case Scorch and Commander Cody?

From Action Figure Insider:
1. If the George-Trooper does well, can we mail-order more Senate pods and weapon packs?

2. What are the chances of seeing more Expanded Universe figures? The two TV series are still a couple of years out. It'd be neat to branch out and cover some of the EU that a lot of fans have been asking for. (The Kir Kanos is a step in the right direction)

3. Have you considered doing a 6” Marvel Legends-hyper articulated style Star Wars line? Maybe based on the old Marvel Comic since you now have the Marvel license as well?

From Figures.com:
1) What is the status of the Unleashed line of figures? I know the latest wave with Han as Stormtrooper, Chewie on Kashyyk and the Clone Trooper was released. Word had it the Unleashed line was cancelled altogether. Any chance of a 'Greatest Hits' re-release of a few favourites, such as Darth Maul or Boba Fett? How about some sculpts based on 'Episode IV - A New Hope'? Please just don't let this line die. I much prefer it to the 3" figures. Thanks.

2) With next year being the 30th anniversary of the birth of the Star Wars franchise, can we expect anything from Hasbro to commemorate the release of the first Star Wars Movie? If you are, can you give us a taste of something you may have in mind?

3) With the awesome addition of Kir Kanos, how far does Hasbro plan on carrying on the Star Wars Expanded Universe theme? Plans for any vehicles? When can we expect them?

From Galactic Hunter:
1) Collectors have been very enthusiastic about the Battle Pack Assortment. Would Hasbro consider including canceled figures like the Trophy Edition Obi-Wan Kenobi and Trophy Edition OOM-9, or hard-to-find figures like Sio Bibble, TC-14, and the Comm-Tech Princess Leia (Hood Up) figures in these assortments?

2) With the pressure of the 'movie years' now past us, are we more or less likely to see Hasbro produce any playsets for the Star Wars action figure line?

3) With the upcoming television series, will we see Hasbro and its retail partners rolling out a vast line of toys similar to the movie launches, or will the scope of the line be more modest?

From Jedi Defender:
1. Are you planning to do more of the Evolutions Sets? If so, when? If not, why? They seemed to sell very well and were popular with both kids and collectors alike - we'd love to see more!

2. Are you planning any more of the Vintage/Premium Figures? If so, when?

3. What are the chances of one more Animated Clone Wars Wave (or box set)? We still need to get C-3PO, R2-D2, Padme (Ilum Snow Gear), and Darth Sidious to round out our sets!

From Jedi Temple Archives:
1. Australia received solid cases of the Basic UGH figures. Now that the initial hype has died down in the US and they are no longer shipping in current assortments, do you have plans to release solid cases in the US? In other countries?

2. Will the 7” Unleashed line continue past the 3 figures just released and will they be available in stores other than Wal*Mart?

3. Amazon.com seems to have problems receiving product and arrival of that product to their stores happens much later than it arrives at brick and mortar stores which causes a great deal of frustration for the customers. Can you shed some light on why delays seem to be so frequent with them?

From Sir Steve's Guide:
1) Are there more new Vintage-Style figures coming, and if so, when can we expect them?

2) Will we be seeing more figures from the Expanded Universe, especially characters beyond just clonetrooper repaints?

3) Have you considered new playset ideas, especially modular playsets so collectors can build larger playsets from smaller sets?

From The Jawa:
We understand the idea behind rehashing and reusing older figures in the the sets. But is it necessary to use those figures from way back and not the more modern issue (ie Untimate Bounty Hunter set had older Bossk from 1997 and not 2004)

2) Can we have more "new" vehicles?

3) Any possibilites of having smaller playset sections that ACTUALLY connect to make a larger one?

From Toy News International:
1) Are there any plans to re-release the classic Deathstar playset in the Saga line or possibly do a new version, perhaps a modular type playset that people buy in parts and then once they have all of them could combine to form one large playset?

2) What are the current plans for the 6" Unleashed line of figures. Are they coming back and if so what figures can we expect to see and when?

3) What are the plans for the VOTC line. Will there be future waves and if so any hints to what figures we might see released?

From Yakface:
1) Is there a plan to ship a variation of the clone pilot? [Episode III Heroes & Villians Asst.] The one which has shipped in the heroes and villians wave is the black version, however the back of the card shows the gray/white uniform.

2) My question today is in regards to the Ultra Titanium series. Will you be creating an Ultra Titanium version of Padme's Episode I Royal Starship, Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator, and General Grievous ship? If so, when do you think we might see them?

3) Does Hasbro intend to release any playsets, large or in smaller sections to create a larger playset?

4) Does Hasbro intend to release the VOTC Stormtrooper without dirt, just white?

From Yoda's News:
1) Will Hasbro start to offer Store Exclusives at the HasbroToyShop site? I love some of the recent Target Exclusives but I don’t have a Target within 30 miles and when I do make the trip, the pegs are empty and I have to pay 2x or 3x retail on ebay. If they sold even a small portion on HasbroToyShop it would give people who want these a better chance to get them!

2) I would like to know if there are plans for future waves of the VTSC/VOTC range and also a prequel character equivalent of this range, possibly starting with repacks of the evolutions figures as single carded figures, for example the evolutions episode 3 Anakin with a better cape, Qui Gon Jin and a softgood episode 2/3 Yoda?

3) Explain to me the relative risks and costs associated with bringing new vehicle and small playset molds into the world, when compared to making massive gambits on entirely new offshoot lines such as Force Battlers and Galactic Choppers. It seems to be a case of fumbled priorities, or rather multiple cases of them stacked and overflowing at my local Wal-Mart.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
