Bounty hunters have gotten some great figures over the past two years. VTAC IG-88, Bossk, Legends Boba Fett, and the upcoming 4-LOM and Evolution Jango are all excellent. But one bounty hunter who has really been ignored since 2002 is Zam Wessell, and her previous two sculpts are really not up to date. Is there any chance this important character with a large speaking role and a lot of screen time in AOTC will ever get the SA treatment? Maybe with an assassin droid, pistol, projectile rifle, and removable helmet with veil?

Can you confirm that there is a Jabba in the works for '08?

Are there any plans to fix the ROTS #41 clone troopers hip joints? I have noticed with all the ones i have, repaints and all, it is really hard to make them pose into a sitting stance because the armor is made to thick in that area. Will this ever be fixed? the New Gree figure (from pictures) seems to have this problem fixed but it is after all just a picture.

Have you considered a training remote accessory? The way to make it work (as discussed among the community years ago) would be to allow it to clip to a lightsaber blade via a laserbolt, as if the shot is being deflected.

This one should be pretty high on the "iconic accessories not yet tackled" list guys!

After many years of requests, there's finally a lot of happy collectors out there who are finding all the armybuilders they could ever want. Thank you. In fact, some army builders are now "warming" the pegs. From your perspective, how is the increase in troop production being received? Are you seeing a favorable return in your investment or are you beginning to see a backlog of product that might alter you current course of action?

Will the Indy figures have a release date like the SW prequel figures, Marvel movie figures, etc...?

Will there be any more Ultimate Battle Packs besides the two we're getting?

I would really appreciate you guys asking this question for me.


Will Canada be getting any figures from the TAC line past wave 5 or have we seen it all up North. One of the  sites said they would not be getting wave 6 on CDN card, so does that also mean we wont be getting anything past wave 6 at Canadian retail?

Can we expect a re-release of the larger winged Tie Fighter anytime soon?  And if so, are there any chance of it not being an exclusive?  If not, it would seem more likely that it could be more reasonably priced around $24.99 - $29.99.

I absolutely LOVE the Astromech droids with the ratchet heads that raise and lower the third leg. These have been around for a few years now and there are about a dozen different varieties now, but there isn't a single R2-D2 with a normal paint job with this body. We've got flame glow R2-D2 and comic book R2-D2 from this design, but I was disappointed when Endor Artoo turned out to be an older mold. Is a normal deco, ratchet head Artoo-Deetoo on his way anytime soon?

what are the chances of a new Jabba in the near future? I think Jabba in the Ultimate Battle Pack would be a great idea! Either from the added scene in ANH the Falcon hanger scene, or his throne room or even aboard his Sail Barge?

Every year you seem to amaze us with some figures and when pcitures of the new Commander Gree hit the net we saw that you decided to add not only ball hinged hips but wrists aswell. Although the figure is not yet on shelves it looks like it will outmatch all clone trooper figures in terms of poses. The question is however do you plan on adding this type of articulation to all other types of clonetroopers and or stormtroopers in the near future?

This week, Hasbro will be starting a new weekly Star Wars Question and Answer feature on their website.

Every Friday, we get the chance to submit up to three questions that we would like posed to the Star Wars brand team.  All of the questions submitted by the Star Wars Collector Sites will be reviewed by the Hasbro Star Wars team and answers to a select few will be posted on www.Hasbro.com/StarWars on the following Friday afternoon. 

Though only a sampling of all questions received will be posted the website each week, Hasbro has promised to make their best effort to respond directly us with the answers to our submitted questions.  Of course, Hasbro may not be able to answer all questions every week (due to volume or questions that may otherwise divulge proprietary information related to future products).


What does this mean for YOU?  Well, we need your questions!

Each week we'll select up to three of the questions in this thread and submit them to the Hasbro Star Wars Team.  Once we start to get answers (or non-answers) back from Hasbro, we'll post them in a handy "2006 Hasbro QnA" Archive Thread!
 
So, if you have a burning question that you'd like to ask the Hasbro Star Wars team, please post it in this thread.  Please remember that we only get to submit 3 questions total each week, so please limit yourself to posting only a few "high priority" suggested questions each week. 

Thanks!

- The JD News Team
Dear Hasbro ,
I want to thank you for the wonderful sculpt of ewok warriors Graak and Romba. It's now possible to make diorama of battle of Endor with little furry warriors ! I hope that you will make other ewok warriors quickly... Is there a possibility in near future to see never-made-before ewok warriors like Rabin, Leektar, Wuta, Kazak ... with other weapons like sling, bolas and rock... and above all : a new catapult !!   Thank tou
