OCB, are you going to be at the Toyfair 2004!!!!

Here what  I would like to know!!!!!

Can we expect a Mos Isly Cantina Wave this year!!!!

Are there any new playsets  (Death Star) in the works!!!!

Can we expect to see Kitik Keedak release in some form!!!

Why did they call the new Y-Wing pilot (Gold Leader)!!!!

Head sculpts on the 12" are we going to see better quality on the core  character such as han, luke, leia.

I really want to see some more Jedi!!!

And i would be pleased to see Sly Moore, Sio Bibble, and maybe a few Episode 1 figures, which to me was the best time of year for Star Wars for me. I wanna kinda relive the moment, that is why i have been really wanting to see EP1 figures in retail again.  But oh well.

Lets just hope we see a whole lot of good, amazing, exciting, brilliant, stuff!!

Great questions stan!  Keep 'em coming folks, and we'll see what we can do to run them by Hasbro's Toy Fair reps in a few weeks, and hopefully get some insight into a few of these mysteries for y'all...

Ed - I don't think you really want to hang out with Dave (jokabofe).  He smells kinda funny from what I've heard...  But that lucky stinker will be our local man on the scene, since he's right in your neck of the woods already (NJ).   ;)

But if you two get together anyway, throw back an extra beer for me!   8)

Ok...

Will we ever see another Y-Wing?
Any chance of a to scale AT-ST or Snowspeeder?
Are more SA troopers planned?
Why do you shun OT playsets?We want a Death Star,dammit!
Why don't you rerelase the Death Star playset form '78?!
Why can't you do scale wings on a tie?
Any chance of Collectors fleet coming back?
Will you continue producing figures till 2018?
Can we expect 2004esq figures for Episode III?Or are you going to turn your back on the collectors again?
Why can't you make scale ships like 21st Century?

First off, I found out that you have to be over 18. Way to shun your target audience, eh?

It's invitation only, and those invitations pretty much just go out to retail toy shoppers, advertisers, and various media type outlets that would be suitable for covering the event.  Typically, most of the SW collecting sites will have a couple staff members invited to cover the show, but that's it.

No "commoners" allowed!   :P  Imagine what it would be like trying to get into something like that, if it was open to the public?  Every SW collector within 500 miles would be knocking down their door, and then you'd have to consider all the toy fans that are just like us for the various other toy licenses on the market.  It would be pandemonium...   ;)

Hence buyers and media only...

To attend Toy Fair, Hasbro must invite the business/group that you are with. As Famine said, I believe, you do not pay to get in, it is by invitation for vendors, press, and media.

As of right now, JediDefender will have at least one staff member attending Toy Fair 2004 and you can be sure that we will bring you pictures and the latest updates as soon as we receive them from Hasbro or the show. We also will surely attempt to do an interview with someone at Hasbro and incorporate reader questions into the feature.
