Become a member. :P ;)
I did, remember? Got banned, no idea how. I guess because some other Jax guys & me were flaming a local scalper. Wasn't horrid flaming though. ::)
Any plans for other Knights of the Old Republic characters?

In one of the earliest Q & A sessions you (Hasbro) stated that there would be no more animated style Clone Wars figures because collectors preferred 'realistic' sculpts.
So why are you ignoring your own market research by releasing the new Marvel EU 2-Packs with their very unrealistic, crazy paint jobs?

(Truth is, I like the Marvel figs, and I LOVE the animated style figs...)

Marvel figs aren't in animated style.

Really?  Since when was the torture Droid green?  And since when did the Stormtroopers have red eyes and blue highlights?  While they are sculpted "realistically" they are painted very unrealistically.   I think what it comes down to is this...could you display them ina diorama along with other TSC figures?

Will the McQuarrie figure be short-packed?

The answer is yes.

The McQuarrie Stormtrooper is only 1x per case in the first wave of 2007 figures.  He won't be a chase figure or anything, but he will be only 1x per case like a few others in the first wave.

What are the chances of us getting a Gossam Commando and Koorivar Fusilier figure?

If Han was w/o the helmet yes. Tarkin unless Hasbro decides to do other imperials in this color no. Of course I won't be getting the other 2 sets besides Han anyway.

Do you guys have any plans for a removable helmet Boba Fett? (Possibly a VOTC Fett re-hash?)

A lot of non-question-for-HAsbro-talk in here.  :-X there's another one.


Hasbro-

The short packed figures in Wave 1 of 2007 will be rereleased in later waves(refreshed)? I certainly hope so since I believe short packing is a mistake.
