Why the hell do they even need to ask if they should make this? I'd buy one instantly.

They just want your permission, kind sir.  ;D

This is exactly the sort of never-before-made thing that Hasbro should be getting into.

I agree that it's a no-brainer.

Without a doubt make it. I pay $40 if it had lights and sounds. I would pay $50 if it plays the Ewok Yub-Yub song.

Hmmm.... looks good, but is it something you really need?

I'm in the same boat... most people could throw together a handful of sticks and probably make something that looks a lot better than this.   But, I might bite if they release it with the flames being removable.

Anyways, I think it's great to see Hasbro considering this, but I just don't think it looks nearly as good as what they are capable of.  If it paves the way for a funeral Padme figure though, then I'm all for it.

Do those of us who want it a favor and let Hasbro know that it's awesome.   ;)

I would be all over this.  I understand lights but what sounds would it be?  Crackling fire?

Seconded.  I'd buy it in a heartbeat.  It's simply fantastic as a display piece, and it's the kind of actual iconic piece this line needs.

Too bad they didn't ask us about the Gellagrub so we could've said, "Well, if you include a 2nd figure, or articulate the grub or something, sure".

It is definitely crackling fire.  I heard the audio in a demo from Derryl DePriest.  And we have video of that at JTA, but sorry...no audio!

This thing looks awesome!  I thought Hasbro said they would never make anything like this. :o  I am so glad they changed their minds.

I would have thought a toy depicting a son lighting his dead father on fire was a no-go for Hasbro as well, but I guess they caved after thinking about all the cool play interaction you could have with a set like this.   ;)

Still not a fan of it, but nice to see some thinking outside the box on new items.
