Hasbro Questions & Answers

You asked the questions and here’s the answers to the 45th batch of questions and our 4th (of 12) for 2010. 

Thanks to Hasbro and Hunter PR for giving fans around the world a chance to get their voices heard and their questions answered especially here at Jedi News, the UK’s premier and favourite Star Wars fan site.

Thanks for sending in your questions and keep them coming for the next Q&A which we’re due to send to Hasbro on Thursday 6th May (the same day as the UK General Election)…

Read on for the Questions and Answers…

1.  Would you consider utilizing the current Deluxe assortment to release larger sized figures on cards that would otherwise not fit on the Vintage Style cards?  Both Kal’Falnl C’ndros and Cane Adiss could benefit from this sort of release and you could pack Kal’Falnl with C-3PO as a Mos Eisley set and Cane Adiss with Slave Leia or another smaller Jabba Palace Palace denizen; this would also be a great way to get Ephant Mon or Graxxol Kelvyyn out there again.

That’s an interesting suggestion, but the focus on the Figure & Vehicle assortment is to be a kid-targeted segment that delivers a great vehicle (and figure) at an affordable price point. We don’t have plans to add any figure 2-packs, and will stick with kid-friendly packs for the line. 

2.  With the announcement that in the US the last wave of Legacy (Build-a-Droid) is a Toys R Us exclusive and the last wave of Comic Packs is going to be in short supply, are there any plans to bring these products to the UK and Canada?

Canada will not be getting the EU basic figure wave, but they are trying to get the comic wave in for distribution here.  We’ve asked for clarification on where ‘here’ is – Canada, UK or both?!?
