Are there any plans to retool the Imperial Officer, Death Star Trooper, or AT-AT Driver? so they do not have those awkward looking swivel elbows? Or are these figures on a long term list to get the whole "SA treatment" sometime in the near future? (MD, 05/09/08) Yes, we do have plans to update these guys within the to SA versions at some point. Imperial Officer would be first, in 2009. The AT-AT driver would come later and might be 2010. Death Star Trooper, though, is someone we might save for a Vintage line and probably wouldn't be in the mainline per se.
The Death Star Trooper answer is interesting... I don't personally think anyone cared for an AT-AT Driver so I found that request odd, but on the Imperial Officer?
About friggin' time... I'm hoping for black and grey variants though, and if they're really nice an olive variant would also be greatly appreciated. Come on Hasbro you know you want to milk the **** out of this mold when it's released, and we'll gladly pay for it.
I'm also hoping for some funky 70's sideburn headsculpts here, and/or Jeremy Bulloch as Imperial coward in ESB. I'm giddy to know this figure is finally coming out though, and I plan to buy these till the cows come home.
