Read on for the Questions and Answers…

1)  Loving the look of the new Jedi Force line.  Will we get any of the missing vehicles (not produced for Galactic Heroes) in the new Jedi Force line, such as a TIE fighter, Republic Gunship, Sandcrawler along with some beasts such as the Batha and Ackaly?

Thanks for the feedback. We are very excited for this new brand launch too. There are plans to do more vehicles in the future, but probably more kid recognizable ones. Creatures are appealing to younger kids, so maybe there is a future for those in the line as well. While we are still in the planning stages of this brand, I guess the best we can say is stay tuned!

2)  Jedi News’ Mark Newbold recently interviewed Jenny Cresswell, the actress who portrayed Han Solo’s girlfriend ‘Jenny’ in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (this scene was removed before release and has never been shown; fingers crossed for inclusion on the Blu-ray set).  During the interview she mentioned her disappointment that with so many Star Wars characters out there, her figure has never been made. With the Blu-ray release imminent, will we be seeing ‘Jenny’, from one of A New Hope’s many deleted scenes, on the shelves?  If not ‘Jenny’ please can you tell us at least one more of the deleted scene figures we’ll be seeing when the Blu-ray’s are released?

Wow, now that’s a question we do not field very often.  Jenny Cresswell.  Well, I imagine you already anticipated our response: “Jenny Cresswell is not currently planned for the line.”  But we can say that among the deleted scenes figures is ROJ sandstorm scene Lando.
