2. When is the next Fan's Choice poll?
3. Whats ups with the Sandcrawler and what figures will be included?
4. Whats the deal with the OTC?
5. Any surprises for 2004?

Ed - I don't think you really want to hang out with Dave (jokabofe).  He smells kinda funny from what I've heard...  But that lucky stinker will be our local man on the scene, since he's right in your neck of the woods already (NJ).   ;)

nice, reeeal nice... the only thing i smell here is jealousy  ;)  ;D

My question suggestion:

Can we get, or expect soon, some clarification on the fate of the Saga line and the forthcoming Original Trilogy Collection (OTC). What is the plan as far as release schedules are concerned for both and will both lines continue simultaneously? Is the OTC simply the beginning stages of yet another card design change for the Saga line or just another micro-line like Clone Wars, Shadows of the Empire and the Expanded Universe?

Here's a little question...

Will the Super Articulated Clonetrooper be moved into Saga eventually?

Also, whoever speaks to Hasbro, please (PLEASE) tell them that distribution still stinks, and that we want to support them and their product, but we can't do it if they don't get the stuff in the stores.

Hasbro releases a tidbit to get us worked up prior to Toy Fair this weekend:

"STAR WARS ORIGINAL TRILOGY COLLECTION

Ever since the classic Star Wars trilogy burst onto the screen in 1977, a new generation of movie and toy fans has continued the tradition of celebrating the past, present and future of the Star Wars universe. In 2004, Hasbro builds on the tradition with the Original Trilogy Collection of authentically detailed figures, vehicles and lightsabers, this time celebrating Lucasfilm's fall release of the Star Wars Trilogy on DVD.

Hasbro's Original Trilogy Collection will recapture the magic of the first three Star Wars film releases from the late 70s and early 80s for a new generation of kids, bringing back the memorable black-and-silver retro package look and collectible new versions of the earliest Star Wars toys.

In addition to updated action figure versions of the most favorite characters from the first three films, Hasbro is bringing back one of the most legendary spaceships in the galaxy -- available for the first time since 1996 will be the Millennium Falcon. (Approx. $4.99-59.99; Available in fall)"

Is anyone from this site going to Toy Fair?

If so, could you pick me up one of those Willow (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) giveaways from DST/MAC? I'll reward handsomely for it. :)

My Questions to Hasbro:

-What's the possibility that we see the Super Articulation feature of the Clone Wars Clonetrooper expanded to other army builders?  

I think that all the Imperial Troops are a no-brainer (Scouttroopers, Stormtroopers, Snowtroopers, Sandtroopers, etc.), but other characters like the Rebel Fleet Troopers, Rebel Hoth Soldiers, Rebel Endor Commandoes, and possibly the Jedi figures could stand to see the Super Articulated treatment.

-Has Hasbro considered taking a page from the G.I. Joe line's popularity by making a "Versus 2-pack"?

I'd personally love to see an idea like Super Articulated Hoth Rebel Soldier Vs. a Super Articulated Snowtrooper.  Or, perhaps a Super Articulated Rebel Fleet Trooper Vs. a Stormtrooper.  Army Builders would indeed rejoice at the opportunity.

-What is the possibility of a Modular Death Star Playset?  

A series of sets that allow the customer to build a playset outward left or right, or upward stacked upon each other, in a cube style that offers a fan the chance to build and infinite playset of the Death Star.

A similar idea could be used for a Hoth Trench set where the trench can be extended left or right infinitely if the customer so wanted.  Remake a scale artillery tower, or a Hoth Rebel Tri-pod cannon, and it'd be a great little diorama series, plus good for army building.

-Will it be possible for the AT-ST or Snowspeeder to see a resculpt so both are 100% true-scale to the films?  

The Landspeeder's resculpt was great, and seemed to do well, so I'd love to see these two get a similar treatment to improve their quality, especially since both vehicles were featured more prominently in the films.

-And of course, the obligatory question about Expanded Universe figures, will Hasbro be producing any Expanded Universe beyond the Clone Wars lineup?  

I for one would love to see some more figures from the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight series of video games, considering how well the original Kyle Katarn and Darktrooper seemed to do, even when offered at an inflated price through the Fan Club.

I've got another question...

"The Clone Wars" Army packs sold like mad.  Any chance we'll see some movie related 3-packs like Stormtroopers, Sanpeople or Gungans?
