Hasbro's Star Wars brand team agreed to answer three questions from Jedi Insider fans on a regular basis. Here are this week's questions and answers. This is the 4th round for 2009.
JI: Will we ever see Characters that debuted in the Clone Wars cartoon made into non-clone wars/Legacy Collection figures like Rex, Ahsoka and Cad Bane? If not on single cards maybe something like comic packs or Evolution sets. From Animated to non-animated type Evolution sets?
Hasbro: There are no plans to cross-over Clone Wars characters into realistically-styled figures (or vice-versa, which we also get asked frequently). The lines will remain separate in order to bring fans the greatest variety of figures possible.
JI: Aura Sing is getting some good screen time on the Clone Wars cartoon, will she be making an appearance anytime soon in the Clone Wars action figure line?
Hasbro: Unfortunately, not soon enough, as we can't wait to get her into the lineup. She is slated right now for 2010.
JI: This may have been asked before, but with all these build-a-droid parts that are getting released, have you ever thought about making an updated droid factory playset like Kenner did many years ago. Something that maybe lets collectors/customizers organize all the droid parts and letís kids pretend they are actually building droids with those parts. Maybe base it off the droid assembly plant seen in Episode 2?
Hasbro: We have indeed looked at this, with a theme very similar to what you suggest, but we just can't get it to price out where we think it needs to be to be a successful toy. We don't want to give up hope on this, though, but the chances of this one seeing the light of day are very slim.
