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) Regarding the Toy Fare Fan's Choice poll figures, which figures won (or, when will the winners be officially announced) and what is happening with them (are they designed yet, when will they be released)?

2) How does Hasbro cope with lines such as Unleashed Battle Packs, Star Wars Custom Choppers, etc., which fans believe from the outset won't work, and then the lines fail as suspected?

3) Will there be any new Star Wars Titanium Series 3" vehicle sculpts that have not already been prototyped? (i.e. AT-TE, Ep 2 Jedi Starfighter, etc.) What about Ep I Die Casts that were never released?

From Action Figure Insider:
1) Will we ever see a re-issue of the ridiculously hard to find Ralph McQuarrie concept Trooper? Will we ever see any more McQuarrie concept characters? (I need a Vader!!)

2) You said VOTC/VTSC figures are based on fan popularity. Does this mean that an SA Jedi Luke (with removable soft goods cloak and grey tunic) is a good bet for this line? His popularity with fans is obvious since he made the Top 25 in the poll.

3) More VOTC/VTSC in 2007 is great news. Is there any chance of a similar premium style line based on the prequel trilogy?

From Behind The Toys:
1) With its seemingly good success, is the Galactic Heroes line planned for a long life?

2) With the last wave of TSC hitting in October, what can we expect to see on the pegs for the holiday season? see on the pegs for the holiday season?

3) What about a vintage style Emperor? The Emperor is high on our list of potential candidates to be considered for the Vintage line.

From Figures.com:
1) With the recent success of Clone Commando Scorch flying off the shelves is there any plans to make his 3 pod brothers - Boss, Sev, and Fixer?

2) Darth Tater and Spud Trooper were a success and I look forward to Artoo-Potatoo in my collection. Any odds of seeing a BOBA FETT RUSSET:)?

3) Had a Death Star playset as a child. You've remade many playsets of my youth, any chance of this coming up (with Trash Compactor Monster!)?

From Galactic Hunter:
1) What three Star Wars action figures does 'the team' want to do before the line ends or the world ends, whichever comes first? (This can be applied to ships, play sets, or beasts, as well.)

2) Will we see a return of the $10 - $15 price point Deluxe/Ultra releases? This line has a lot of potential for releasing small vehicles and beasts (Geonosian Orray and cart from the Arena) along with background figures. This format could also be utilized for multi-packs, oversized figures (Hermi Odle) and accessories too. (Did we mention Hermi Odle?)

3) The Ralph McQuarrie Stormtrooper from 2003 was a big hit with fans, and they were snatched off of shelves as quickly as they appeared. Is there any chance that we'll see figures based on Concept Art, Poster Images, or other non-movie images in the near future?

4) Since a lot of the Modern Era vehicles have been based on Kenner molds, are there any ships that we can strike off of our lists because the necessary molds are simply unfeasible?

5) Will themed waves continue past the Saga Collection?

From Jedi Defender:
1) Willrow Hood (the Ice Cream Maker Guy) seems to have a huge fan following. Even if he does not win the Toy Fare Fan's Choice poll, when can we expect to see him on the pegs?

2) Will you be offering any more "mail away" figures for 2006? Would it be something that you will look at again in 2007 if the vintage Lucastrooper mail-away is successful?

3) This year, the VOTC Stormtrooper mold is being reused for the 2006 Saga Tatooine Wave Sandtrooper figure. Is it possible that we'll see the VOTC Stormtrooper re-released back in the basic figure line at some point?

From Jedi Temple Archives:
1) Are there any plans for making a Darth Sidious electronic lightsaber?

2) Can you tell us when the Fan Choice figure for 2006 will be announced?

3) The UGH George Lucas Stormtrooper program has had its pluses and minuses. Now that the bulk of the initial stages of this program are behind us, can you say that you will be offering a similar program next year?

From POTF2.com:
1) Will we ever see a reissue of Fan's Choice #3 - Ephant Mon?

2) With the popularity of the many ROTS style clonetrooper, can we still expect to see AOTC style clonetroopers released?

3) Any plans for a remade/new sculpt Uncle Owen?

From Sir Steve's Guide:
1) Does Lucasfilm have the rights to the likeness for the Tonnika Sisters (ANH cantina patrons), and if so is there plans to create figures?

2) Are there any plans for any of the unmade Padme/Amidala figures from the prequels in the foreseeable future? If so, which ones?

3) Is there a possibility of bringing back the 3 3/4" Deluxe figure line?

Click here for the answers to these questions.



NEW: From Star Wars Action News:
1) How many of the silver foil chase basic figures were produced? Could you break it down by figure?

2) Has Hasbro heard of the Lucas trooper POP issues? Are we going to see more mail in figures? What can Hasbro do to try to counter theft of the POPs?

3) Some figures are short packed, ie, only one or two to a case while other figures are always around. The most recent one was Scorch, who was rare and Darth Vader, who can’t be given away. How does Hasbro decide the quantity of figures to be packed in a case and can we expect these “rare” figures of 2006 to be re-released later?

From The Jawa:
1) Are there any plans for new sculpts in the 2007 line of 6" Unleashed
figures?

2) Is there any chance of Ephant Mon being offered in a future Battle Pack
or multi-figure collector set?

3) When the Covert Ops Clone Trooper was offered on StarWarsShop.com, the
product description said the trooper could be the 'debut of a possible new
line of troopers released by Hasbro in the coming months.' Any update?

From Toy News International:
1) Are you looking at expanding the Titanium line to include Expanded Universe ships?

2) Can you tell us what other clone trooper figures will be released other then the ones already out? There are still many versions from ROTS that have yet to be released in figure form.

3) Any more Star Wars Potatoe Head figures after R2-D2 in the works?

From Yakface:
1) Are there any plans to revisit the POTF-style cardbacks when issuing the new Vintage (VTSC) line of figures? Of all the figure that have been released in the modern era(1995-2006), are there any you'd personally like to see resculpted?

2) Based on the overwhelming response to the current TSC-style cardback, are there any plans to depart from this style once the 2006 line has ended?

From Yoda's News:
1) When are we going to see a line of figures based on the Star Wars novels? The last expanded universe line was years ago. With the success of the book series it would be a perfect time for another EU line. Especially since we only have one figure of Mara Jade, the most popular EU character, and dozens of figures of characters that were in the movies. And I'm not including her bust, since it's only a convention exclusive.

2) The Galactic Heroes figures continue to be very popular and it’s great to see some coming back out. Many of the figures are now selling for insanely high prices on the secondary market. Is there any chance that we will see a re-release of some of those figures that have yet to be announced? Namely the Padme / Anakin and Jango /Obi-Wan sets?

3) My check has been cashed, so how soon can we expect to see the Lucastrooper hitting the mailboxes?

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
