JEDI TEMPLE WAR ROOM HASBRO Q&A SESSION - WEEK OF APRIL 8th, 2010
Here are Hasbro's responses to JTWR's questions:QUESTION:
Back in an August 2009 Q&A session Hasbro stated that an upgraded Original Trilogy Y-Wing was in the works for 2010. Might this version finally represent the Grey Squadron from RETURN OF THE JEDI, or could this version be from A NEW HOPE with a mission to "Stay on Target"?ANSWER:
Here we don't have such good news. We had been working on a new Y-Wing, but this was dropped from the plan as retailers decided to scale back on Star Wars exclusives for 2010. We do think that we will have an opportunity for a new version in 2011 or 2012. So the question back to your fans is "which one would you most like to see us do next?" Let us know what folks think. QUESTION:
The Vintage Collection brings back one of the most iconic toy packages that anyone has ever seen. But prior statements in the Q&A process and from Toy Fair seem to indicate that the smaller blister is going to have a marked effect on what can be included with a basic figure....so no Scanning Trooper with scanning gear on a Vintage Collection card. But in the past few years the basic figure line has seen some of the largest figures ever offered in the Star Wars line, with a number of those being Wookiees. In a September '09 Q&A it was stated that a Wookiee other than Chewbacca might be on tap for 2011. Will a Wookiee fit in the new, smaller figure blisters on the Vintage Collection cards? And can you offer any hints on the identity of this new Wookiee?ANSWER:
Yes, taller characters will fit on the Vintage blister, but you are correct in that bigger accessories will not. Which is why it has been a challenge to find a home for the Imperial Scanning Crew Trooper (we still have not, yet).
