2008 Q&A Session With Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team Round 17
Jay Cochran - October 18, 2008




Hasbro's Star Wars brand team agreed to answer three questions from Jedi Insider fans every other week. Here are this week's questions and answers. This is the 17th round for 2008.


JI: Why do Star Wars figures still use T-crotches instead of switching over to the newer types of sculpts used now on G.I.Joe and the upcoming 3 3/4" Marvel figures? This question comes from JI reader Xupopix.

Hasbro: In most cases, it's because of the added expense and for aesthetic reasons - we want the articulation to work seamlessly with the visual appeal of the character rather than be the driving force behind the figure. Based on the continued popularity of our current figure lineup, fans seem to appreciate the results as well and we don't have plans to deviate from the model.


JI: With the inclusion of Fen Shysa in the Expanded Universe Comic Packs, it seems like Hasbro is more willing to go way back into the Marvel run of Star Wars comics. Any chance we could see more old favorites like Kiro, Dani, Bey, Rik Duel, Knife, Drebble, or maybe even a Stenax? This question comes from JI reader Henryce1973.

Hasbro: Beyond a Luke/Lumiya 2-pack and the Wal-Mart exclusive Ewok 3-pack next Spring, we will not be doing much with the Marvel comic run in 2009. We do hope to come back in 2010 with some more packs, including, hopefully 1-2 of the characters that you mentioned. Of the ones you mention, Dani and Rik Duel would be highest on our priority list.



JI:In a previous Q&A segment, you guys seemed to indicate that Nom Anor would be making an appearance in plastic form in the near future. Since then, you've showered us with Crimson Empire-related love; first with the Jax/Kanos comic pack and now the upcoming Entertainment Earth exclusive set. This may be splitting hairs, but would it be safe to assume we'll be seeing our favorite Vong infiltrator sporting his armored and cloaked look as seen in the Crimson Empire series or, perhaps, do you plan on retooling [or even pre-tooling] the mold used for the now confirmed Kyle Katarn/Yuuzhan Vong warrior comic pack to offer up a more diplomatic look? This question comes from JI reader Die Fighting X.

Hasbro: A Nom Anor pack did not make the list for 2009, but we can confirm that he'll be in the 2010 comic pack lineup.

If you would like to submit a question for Hasbro to answer, then head over to the new JediInsider Forums and post it. We might select it as a question to be asked in a future Q&A. We will be sending in the next batch of question on October 24.
