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 we see more new Vehicles such as the AT-TE, Cloud Car, V-wing, in the foreseeable future? Can you be specific as to which ones?

2) Will we ever get a Spirit of Anakin figure based on Hayden Christensen as seen in the Original Trilogy DVD release?

3) Many collectors are frustrated with exclusives which are often hard to find due to scalper draw, limited or uneven distribution, and exclusives to chains not available in certain areas. While understanding that exclusives are an important part of getting certain items released, as well as a tool for Hasbro's dealings with their retail partners, what can be done to remedy this ongoing problem so that collectors can feel like Hasbro cares about their interests and concerns?

From Action Figure Insider:
1. Is there any way to offer previous pack-in characters as singles or mailaways? Bespin guard, Rebel pilots, etc.

2. Will we be seeing less action feature and more articulation i.e. ROTS pilot Obi-wan?

3. Any plans for Galactic Heroes passed in the upcoming line (Wedge, Stormy Luke, Stormy Han) -- including Galactic Heroes vehicles or playsets?

From Figures.com:
1) Die-hard old Action Fleet collector here and the return to the AF scaled format with the Titanium line is refreshing, aside from the rehashes (Snow Speeder, Slave 1, et al, already have 'em!). What NEW ships can we look forward too in the larger scale? (ROTS had quite a few only touched in the smaller Titanimum format.)

2) Do you plan to make action figures based on the highly anticipated Star Wars TV show and if so, will you be making them a part of the central line of SW figures, or will they be their own line?

3) Are there any plans to make more 2.5" Star Wars Unleashed figures and/or vehicles (like the mini-Sigma 6 G.I. Joe figures)?

From Galactic Hunter:
1) Can we expect to see more Hasbro action figures from the Clone Wars Animated Series? If so, what is the rough timeline?

2) Has Hasbro explored the possibility of starting a collector's club, offering unique figures and accessories to its membership? How many collectors would need to 'organize' in order to pique Hasbro's interest in this concept? Hasbro dedicates a lot of care and attention to nurturing its relationship with G.I. Joe and Transformers collectors, adopting official conventions and collector clubs, and Star Wars fans often feel left out of the fun. Will Hasbro make any such efforts for Star Wars collectors in the future?

3) With Hasbro's recent acquisition of the Marvel license, can we hope to see modular pieces (a la build-a- figure/vehicle/playset) introduced into the Star Wars line? Many larger-scale figures and mini-sized vehicles could finally see production this way.

From Jedi Defender:
1. Articulation is a popular feature on toys for children and adults alike. Is it possible we'll see things like elbow, wrist, and knee joints become the standard in the Hasbro basic line on all figures, regardless of their role in the films, since poseable toys are popular?

2. With the HUGE success of the Marvel Legends Build-a-Figure idea, is there any chance that we might see that implemented in the 3.75" Star Wars line to get figures (such as Hermi Odle or a new Probot) or maybe playsets (like a Jabba's Dais or Moisture Evaporator)?

3. What's the story with the Saga Wave 7 Endor Rebel Soldiers that debuted on your website recently - are they shipping at the same time in the same case, are they randomly packed, or will they be a running change?

From Jedi Temple Archives:
1. What are the numbers for the figures in the Endor and Naboo waves?

2. When can we expect to hear more information about this years San Diego Comic Con Exclusives?

From POTF2.com:
1) I heard that Hasbro is thinking of adding a few EU figures into the mix for 2007, but will any of these figures include characters from novels? And, is there a ballpark figure on the number of EU figures that will be made next year? 2? 3? An entire wave?

2) Is Hasbro/Lucas thinking of creating a toy only line with new characters, or will everything be based on movies, comics, TV and novels?

3) When will the next fan favorite poll begin?

From Sir Steve's Guide:
1) What are the chances of seeing Vintage-Style figures for prequels characters?

2) Will there ever be the curved Cantina bar end piece, and if so, when will it be made available and what will it come with?

3) Why does Hasbro not want to discuss specifics in regards to possible upcoming products when Hasbro has no competition for making Star Wars action figures?

Click here for the answers to these questions.



NEW: From Star Wars Action News:
1) What happened to the "one of every figure" club that they mentioned at C3?

2) Where does Hasbro see the future of the toy line moving? With the influx of non-movie, expanded universe characters gaining popularity from the books, video games, and television series, is there any consideration of pursuing a full line of these sort of characters? Even if not, will there remain occasional EU chase figures such as the Shadow Stormtrooper?

3) Is the Ultimate Galactic Hunt over? Or is this going to be an ongoing promotion?

Click here for the answers to these questions.



From The Jawa:
1) Since ball joints offer greater pose-ability and play value (as opposed to the swivel-joints) for things like elbows, shoulders, and knees, why don't more of the figures have ball joints?

2) Can collectors of the vehicle line expect any new sculpts in the forseeable future?

3) If a character or version of character is already planned for release, do you bar that selection from Fans' Choice polls, so that a truly bonus figure can emerge?

Click here for the answers to these questions.



From Toy News International:
1) Are there any plans for a poseable 6" Marvel Legends style line of Star Wars action figures?

2) What are the plans for the Expanded Universe?

3) Will we ever see Darth Sidious' lightsaber?

From Yakface:
1) Any chance we can expect to see a Lars Homestead scene pack with Cliegg Lars, prequel Owen and Beru, anytime soon? This could be a great exclusive?

2) have read much about cost issues etc with creating new ships/playsets. But the Star Wars 3.3/4" line is about re-creating enviroment and scenes that make us feel the magic. Surely there are ways to get ships done including large ones. And smaller ones with electronic features. Whadaya say Hasbro?

3) When will we see figures of Commander Bacara's galactic marines?!?

From Yoda's News:
1) Will we ever see army builder figures packed consistently in cases, regardless of the relevance they may have to the particular "wave" of figures? A considerable amount of collectors love army builders, and to have a few Super articulated Clone Troopers, Stormtroopers (plain white VOTC mold, not dirty like the Sandtrooper #37 from the Saga Collection), Scout Troopers, ett packed in a case would be great.

2) Will we see any more Ewoks? Maybe even an Ewok Battle Pack? Maybe a Tusken Raider Battle Pack? Perhaps a Stormtrooper (not Clonetrooper) Battle Pack?

3) Why do we not have the entire line of Star Wars 3" 3/4 product here in FRANCE in our supermarket. Why should we rely on specialized toy shops or the internet to be able to get a complete collection and pay overpriced items ( I mean US customers paid what $8 max when in FRANCE, in US currency, each fig costs $ 13 MINIMUM!) Also why do our neighbors country (Germany and Great Britain ) have the VOTC line in their stores and we could get the George Lucas in Stormtrooper Disguise ?

Probe
Droid
Poll
While it can be argued that both are important to many collectors, the Probe Droid wants to know, if given the choice, would you demand Hasbro brought back all the articulation or improve the paint applications.
Great Paint applications are more important to me.
I'm all about multiple poses, so I'd rather see all the articulation come back.
