I like the looks of the upcoming CW 2-packs.  How about a pack featuring a Clone Y-Wing pilot and his astromech, to coincide with the release of the Y-Wing this fall?

Your first take at the Kashyyyk trooper, which was a straight Scout trooper repaint, remains a popular figure in the after market. Any chance of this figure being re-release, but this time, as an Imperial Trooper?

QUESTION>>>

Now that the Clone Wars line is a great success, is there any chance that you will add animated style OT figures into the mix? (Gentle Giant has set a precedent with their statues.) I would love to see a nicely designed Vader, Luke or Solo.  All you would have to do is have a "Classic Character" label on the card, and I'm sure they'd sell briskly.

Hasbro,
Why have the original Rebo band members, as well as the cantina band members, never been released individually? They are all in major need of an upgrade. They seem like they are popular enough characters, so any chance that you could be making some new versions of these guys in the near future? An original Sy Snootles would be really nice too!

Hey Hasbro, Celeste Morne was the star of Star Wars: Vector. She played such an influential role, and, as such, she deserves the action figure treatment. But when? A Comic Pack (featuring any of the Vector Comics) would be nice! She could be packed in with either Darth Vader, a Rakghoul, or even Karness Muur himself! This is even a great oppurtunity for a new KOTOR Zayne Carrick! For Celeste, super articulation would be key, and a removable Muur Talisman would be neccessary.

Dear Hasbro,
Now that Comic Con has come and gone, I noticed one thing that was missing from the presentation...  The Visionaries Darth Maul, who was featured in the SW Insider article.  What is the current status of this figure?

Dear Hasbro,
so far imperial officer figures suffered either from lack of articulation (General Veers) or awkward Death Star Trooper legs (Captain Needa). When do we finally get a completely new SA imperial officer? A really good body sculpt with a replaceable rank badge could be used over and over again to produce ultimate versions of much demanded characters like Admiral Piett, Captain Lennox, Grand Moff Tarkin, Admiral Pallaeon, Commander Praji or Lieutenant Sheckil.

Being a huge Imperial fan - and Hasbro, I know you know who I am - I love that question.

I asked a similar question a couple weeks ago. Here's what they had to say:

Quote
Q3: Now that we've received pretty much the ultimate Imperial officer sculpt in Captain Needa, can we expect an updated A New Hope version of Grand Moff Tarkin (or other officers) in the not to distant future?

A3: Perhaps not as quickly as you'd like, but we do have plans to utilize this body for future officer releases and upgrades.  Tarkin would certainly be high on the list of those we'd like to see updated.

Sounds like the body's going to be kind of like the TIE Fighter.  They got the torso down now, so they gotta work on legs, arms, etc.  :)  Though I think that the arms are alright.  Legs are about all that needs fixed unless you count the "skirt" needing to have a slit for sitting, or to be cloth all together.

I dunno. I'd rather see them take another stab at the the whole thing, though, the Lt. Sunbar figure isn't so bad as a base.

Dear Hasbro,
the upcoming Giran, Nysad and Malakili figures look fantastic and has us yearning for more of Jabba’s goons. So what can we expect in the next two years? A new Gamorrean Guard and Woof have already been confirmed but will there finally be new skiff or sail barge guards such as Kithaba, Queequeg, Verdain, Vizam or Yotts Oren?

Dear Hasbro, who is this Stan guy? Why does he always profess to have "inside" knowledge of what's in production?

Just giving you a hard time, Stan.  ;)

Hey Hasbro, with the foreknowledge that the Build-A-Droid pack-in concept will eventually end and the fact that the Evolutions line is retiring, have you considered combining both, using existing tooling, for a new line in the future? Do you think kids and collectors would be interested in a 3 pack of astromechs (one perhaps being R2-D2 that you could take apart) with additional domes and rocket legs that can be swapped, or a set of uniquely painted protocol droids, or perhaps another set with repaints of the aggressive droids, all with parts than can be swapped to make unique figures?  Darth Gamboa

Dear Hasbro,

Recently you stated that the comic packs had dwindled in sales . The reason is you have repacks in some of the recent assortments that are almost three years old ( Marvel comic figures) and not enough of the new packs in the case assortments. Are you willing to rectify this problem, or will the line fade away? Ghost of QG
