Will that new Han be tauntaun ready?

From a recent Q&A session here at JD, which came out just before the "Search for Luke" set was revealed:
2) If we were to release a Taun-Taun for Han we would most likely update the figure to fit onto the creature.

Like JJ said, the pics sure looked like bj-hips so it's a good bet that Han will fit on that Tauntaun just fine...

Looking good for Princess Kneesa in 2012 too...

We will finally know where woklings come from.  ;D

Actually, I had the plush Kneesa from 83-84, I knew where they came from.  ;)

Somebody needs to ask Hasbro  if they'll ever make the Gian Speeder, it being 10 years+ since TPM.

Didn't Hasbro say something, somewhere recently, about the Battledroid's fold-up dealy getting some attention?  I could've sworn they were asked about it by somebody.

Yeah...I guarantee it's the MTT, based on their nerdjaculation over the fold up feature of the droid.

That or the little troop transport thingie they did (It was in ROTS too IIRC).  But an MTT would be interesting given the BMF style treatment.

$40 though, or under, and I'm thinking it'll be sad.

It would be cool to have to MTT on one hand (or is it MMT? I'm too lazy to check right now). But on the other hand, you'd sort of be stuck buying like 40 of the new fold-up battledroid...at Vintage collection prices. Still, with the ****** plastic Hasbro uses for their battledroids, "folded up and hung on a series of hooks" may be the only practical pose you can get.

I'd love to see a big MTT - if they do go about it, they absolutely have to find some way to compliment it with a droid army that is easy to acquire, and not too pricey.  Who knows how they'd go about that, but I don't see why they can't also use the "Movie Heroes" line with two Battle Droids in a single blister... and some sort of army building battle pack too.  Even a TRU exclusive - 8 of the new Battle Droid sculpt, 1 Destroyer Droid and a new Darth Maul for $49.99.... eh?  I'd bite.

On the other hand, knowing Hasbro we might get some sort of deluxe MTT mini rig that opens up a front hatch and on a rack it holds a grand total of one Battle Droid... how ridiculous would that look?   ;D

I love the larger vehicles (republic shuttle aside) but the MTT is a big turd and just kinda hovered for a minute.  Granted the army of droids inside was pretty nifty and I'd bet they'd outfit it with maybe half of them to start things off.  I'm sure if they did make one it'd follow that formula and be some kind of wonky playset and I guess that would be okay because other than the droid storage it really didn't/doesn't have much going for it.

Perhaps we'll see a few *hints* in the toon ?

Yeah, a PAC type craft could turn out well in whatever passes for the starfighter assortment these days, but it could use a boost from the 'toon to give it a lot more recognition than it has now. 


I never once noticed the things watching TPM:


Nor RotS:


They only came to my own attention when lego made this excellent set last year:


Although, I guess they also had an earlier go at it during the E1 era:

Yeah they were like Higgins Boats in ROTS...  Blink and you miss it in TPM, but I could see it happening.

Don't they have the MTT deploying droidekas in a deleted scene from TPM?

So this was dropped on us today (I wasn't home, so apologies)...

Hello -


Thank you for your continued participation in Hasbro's Star Wars Q&A program. Hasbro understands that you've been waiting patiently for your outlet's responses from the team for this last round of the Q&A dating back to September 16, and it's appreciated. Following Hasbro's fun and exciting debut at New York Comic Con this past weekend, which included a successful Hasbro Star Wars panel, the team has decided to forgo the current Q&A round and focus on the next round.


Hasbro apologizes for the last-minute notification and hopes that you'll submit questions for the next round.

Late was bad enough...  Now you just basically are saying, "piss on it"?

I've enjoyed the Q&A process, but at this stage it's maybe a bit worn out.  Our questions really didn't get obstructed by what was revealed at NYCC since we knew that show was coming up.   We specifically tried avoiding it as a topic.  Now those questions will go unanswered for, well, really no good reason other than they just didn't feel like it.  :-\
