As part of Hasbro's new weekly Q&A session, Rebelscum passed on 3 (well, 3.5) of your burning questions and now we've got the answers for you. Rebelscum: I have a long list of items that aren't coming out in the UK or other parts of Europe. Why doesn't Hasbro get said toys in limited quantities via FOB and sell them through their web shops to supply the demand?Hasbro:
While all of our domestic (U.S.) products are made availabe to retailers in other regions, that does not necessarily mean that they will see retail distribution in that area - some of these things are out of our control. Rebelscum: Are the American and Canadian Proof of Purchase tabs on the Vintage Saga Collection figures interchangeable? Can I still redeem my Lucas Trooper if I have mix of Canadian and American tabs on my certificate?Hasbro:
Yes.Rebelscum: Why are many much-desired items (Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator, the AT-TE and Twin Pod Cloud Car, Playsets etc.) passed over in favor of a ton of new Star Wars lines like Attacktix, Unleashed Battle Packs, Galactic Heroes, Jedi Force, Force Battlers, Mr. Potato Heads, Star Wars Transformers, Star Wars Customs, Star Wars Miniatures? In the past, it's been said that producing things such as are not cost-effective for today's market, but that hardly seems logical.Hasbro:
We look to products that will produce the greatest return on our resource investment. Vehicles and figures are more popular play patterns for the kid audience than playsets, and the lines you referenced are squarely kid-targeted. We are looking to introduce some new 3-3/4? vehicles next year (and re-introduce some high demand ones this Fall).Rebelscum: (Leftover from last week's session) Will we see any more female figures, specifically Padm? in her various costumes?Hasbro:
Eventually, yes, but it's too early to say when the next version will be made available.
Got any burning Star Wars
