Something else I got out of the Q and A this time is that there are 15 Comic packs and 25% of those will be Marvel.  That bascially means that once the Luke and R2D2 pack hits, we will be done with  with Marvel Comic Packs. 

Good point , Paul!
Nice to know that at least ;D.

Damn, I was hoping for that green rabbit from the early part of the Marvel comic series.  ;)

There's been hints of this Q/A to be cancelled soon. When can we expect that I wonder.

I assumed it was over when they moved to this "every other week" formula. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Hasbro sent out a Q&A schedule and that went through May 11th.

After that though, you get into Celebration IV at the end of May and then SDCC in July.  Don't know if they plan to go past that date or not, I guess we will have to wait and see how long it lasts...

There's been nothing to imply it will continue or close up one way or the other...  Either way I think it's been a positive thing since it started in general, I'd be disappointed to see it go, but given the downward turn it takes some weeks I could easily see WHY they'd want to close shop on it.

I think it would be absolutely foolish for Hasbro to discontinue these.  It would come across in the most negative light, and I don't think they want that kind of backlash from their most loyal supporters  ;D.

I have to admit that the Q and A is actually pretty decent.  In the beginning I did not think it would be.  But Hasbro has been good with it really.  There have been quite a few interesting things we have learned along the way.  Especially between big announcements.

Due to Toy Fair complications, there will be no Q&A Answers today...

All questions that were supposed to be answered today will be held over to the next round and answered on Friday, March 2.

Looks like there will be no Q&A answers in February...  :-\

That's definately a whole lot of suck...  Especially since some questions may get answered after Toy Fair and things...  It kind of blows but what are ya gonna do?

Damn you Lucafilms!!!!!
It looks like it'll be a year before we find out. I really hope if the license does go to a kid company it's Hasbro. There's only been 1 dud figure this year, which means the Indy line would be awesome. I'm really craving for Indy figures & not that crap Disney gave us.

Would you consider doing a fans choice ballet for the Titanium 3" vehicle line? I ask this because the reissues with paint variations and "battle damage" give the impresson that Hasbro has reached the end of the line as far as new ideas. I believe there are plenty of vehicles to be made and maybe the fans need a contest forum to shed light on new vehicles. (ST, 3/02/07)*

This is an interesting idea and certainly, given the large fan passion for Titanium, a valuable tool for our input.  We'll look into this.

I don't know about you guys, but I think a Fan's Choice Ballet could be an interesting experiment.  It's about time someone brought some high culture into toy collecting.  Bravo, Sandpoopers.  Bravo.

Yep, I kind of agree with that question.  There are tons of other vehicles they could do instead of repainting the X-Wing 8 times (yes I exagerated but still).

I was wondering if anyone else had caught that.  Could we see something in the future like Sith Lake?  ;D
