Will there be any more than 9 EU packs like rumored next year?

The  Episode  III  Jedi  Starfighter  has  a  removable  R2  dome,  giving  the  option  to  place  other  R2  figures  into  the  open  droid  socket,  thus  giving  added  play  value.  Is  it  possible  that  you  can  incorporate   this  feature  into  future  vehicle  releases  such  as  the  V-Wing  Starfighter,  or  possible  rereleases  of  the  Y-Wing  and  Naboo  N-1?

Hasbro,

Will we see more TPM figures in future assortments? It seems like The Phantom Menace gets the shaft in terms of figures, having only one wave a figures this year and no vehicles. I think I speak for many collectors when I say that we'd like to see much fan-requested figures like Mawhonic, a "Ultimate" Qui-Gon Jinn, a "Ultimate" Battle Droid, and Tey How, to name a few.

You know what the answer to that will be.

"Excellent question! Stay tuned, as more details will be revealed at Toy Fair '07"

Hasbro answered that question last week...


3. It appears as if the highly requested Airborne Clone Trooper sculpt is finally being released (with Purple colors, in the upcoming "Mace Windu's Squadron" Battle Pack at Target). When can we expect this figure to appear in the basic figure assortment, with the highly requested Commander Cody/Orange Squadron colors?

Hasbro,

Why did you "joke" about Yarna and Willrow Hood at the 06 SDCC Slideshow Panel? There are many collectors who would like to add Willrow or Yarna to their collections, like myself. Both Yarna and Willrow made the top 25 most fan-requested figures, so why joke about them?

Seconded. Please consider this question.

Why don't the Republic Commandos in the upcoming pack have balljointed knees, ankles & arms? The RCs are the most action packed clones in the SW universe, so those would make sense.

Scorch didn't have that articulation, so it was likely the other RCs, being repaints of him, woudn't include that articulation. Personally I'm fine with it.

When people asked for more cartoon style Clone Wars figures, you stated that collectors preferred more realistic figures.  If this is true, what was the thinking behind the Marvel EU packs?  They aren't "real" looking at all.

Hey Hasbro

Why haven't we seen any new All Terrain Vehicles rather than the AT-ST,AT-RT,AT-AT. What about a AT-AP or AT-OT but mostly a AT-TE!Besides my Gunners need a AT-TE to mount!
FOR THE REPUBLIC!

Hasbro - After what Attakus has offered, tons of fans are drooling at the possiblity of something along the lines of their Death Star/Falcon setup -



That being said, are you aware of what customizers are making?













Now... will you ever consider finally making something like one of the above pics?  You seem to work hard on making figures realistic but have not done so at all for playsets, or for many vehicles.

Or, at the very least some sort of nice accessory set like this?
