Read on for the Questions and Answers…

1)  The Galactic Heroes line was a fan favourite but after 9 years I guess it was time for something new. The Jedi Force line looks fantastic and making the vehicles compatible was a very welcome idea. However, there are a few figures that we’re missing from the Galactic Heroes line such as the other half of the Republic Commandos… is there any chance you’d consider releasing one more Cinema Scene featuring a selection of these ‘missing’ figures – maybe we could even vote for the figures we’d like to see? If not for retail, would you consider it as a convention exclusive?

No further Galactic Heroes packs are planned, but another Cinema Scene pack would be a cool addition.  Perhaps someday in the future…

2)  You’ve confirmed Ben Quadrinaros and Tarkin for The Vintage Collection and made Kyle Newman a very happy person in the process (incidentally, will we also see Tarkin coming from The Clone Wars ‘Citadel’ episodes too?).  Now the most important question that fans are asking… with Episode I being released next February, in cinemas and now in 3D, are we still on course for a Kitster and Wald two pack in 2012 as discussed with Derryl at Star Wars Celebration V?

Kitster and Wald are not currently planned for 2012.
