It seems that the days for the Indiana Jones line are dwindling since you have mentioned that planned products are no longer being considered. Would you consider altering the line to be an online exclusive much like what is being done for Mattel's collector driven Masters of the Universe line?

From The Private Universe (08/16/08):

Q1. If retail stores down the line decide to discontinue ordering Indiana Jones Figures, what would the chances be of Hasbro continuing to offer new Indiana Jones figures through various On line stores, such as Hasbro Toy Shop, Entertainment Earth, etc?

A1. Thanks for the good word. The production volumes needed to get a new wave of figures produced is much larger than the online channel can support by itself, this is primarily a collector-targeted channel. The ability to continue to bring IJ figures to market depends on the continual support of the top retailers, along with a strong base of kid support for the IJ fantasy.

Hasbro has shown a lot of love for the Battlefront 2 video game.  In the past year we got the Clone and Droid multipacks, the Rebel Vanguard trooper, Stormtroopers, Scout Troopers, (although overscaled to the game) Darktrooper and some reports have indicated the repainted Death Star Gunner (as the Imperial Engineer) is already in stores.  When will Hasbro release some of the remaining characters?

-A head-swap with the Saga Collection General Veers would make a nice Imperial Officer
-ROTS Tarrful could be adapted to be the Wookie Warrier
-A clean Sandtrooper w/ Orange Pauldron and rocket launcher makes the Shocktrooper
-The German soldiers from the Indy line could be adapted to be the Rebel Smuggler
-Resculpted, super-articulated Fleet trooper

I think my asking is if they will gear the line to collector's (raise the price for figures and offer them online)

If they did Ziro the Hutt, I'm done. Worst. Character. Ever.

Dear Hasbro,

At Comic-Con, you revealed some pretty awesome Mighty Muggs in Waves 6 & 7. However, Wave 7 consisted only of two Expanded Universe characters, Darth Maul and Darth Revan. Will there be any more Muggs in this wave or is that it? Also, what can fans of the Mighty Muggs line expect in 2009 as far as the number of waves is concerned?

Thanks,
-David

Is the 3 3/4 Marvel line going to be heroes only or will we eventually see some villains?

I'm pretty sure Goblin & Bullseye are in the line because they're currently members of the Thunderbolts.

Hasbro's Marvel team is different from the Star Wars/Indy team. 

The Hasbro Marvel team has their own Hasbro Marvel Q&A, but JD isn't part of that.  You might want to check out someplace like Cool Toy Review or Raving Toy Maniac to see if you can get that question into their Marvel Q&A sessions.

Oh. I know about CTR's Q&A, but they barely do it.

Now that Hasbro has released the Clone and Droid Battlefront sets.  What are the chances we'll see sets featuring the Rebel and Imperial factions from the game?
