EDI TEMPLE WAR ROOM HASBRO Q&A SESSION - WEEK OF OCTOBER 28th, 2010


Here is the latest from Hasbro:


QUESTION:  The announcement of the Rebel Hangar Crew with transport being re-offered as a TRU exclusive has been widely hailed by many a collector.  And it really does harken back to the vintage days of "the mini-rig".  But it raises a couple of questions:
 
First, it was announced that the Rebel Hangar Crew with transport would be offered in a TRU exclusive assortment with a second Figure with vehicle.  So what might that second set be, and when can collectors expect these in stores?
 
And if we're not pressing our luck TOO much, there's a second part to this question:  This will be the second movie-realistic offering in the Figure with vehicle format.  Both have been TRU exclusives so far.  But can movie-realistic fans hold out some hope that this particular assortment might be expanded in the not-so distant future to include both Clone Wars AND movie-realistic offerings?

ANSWER:  Yes, we will reveal….it will be a Clone Wars Geonosian Warrior (non-zombified) on a speeder; look for this assortment to hit TRU stores in March next year.   For '11, there are no plans to add movie-specific packs to this assortment since the line is kid-focused and Clone Wars is the engine driving this assortment.  That will likely change somewhat in '12.





QUESTION:  2)  Much of the collecting community has been abuzz about wave 5 of The Vintage Collection.  Especially since this particular wave will mark the first time in a long time that we'll be seeing a non-themed basic figure wave.  And indications are that some of the figures will be from A NEW HOPE, and others will be from THE PHANTOM MENACE.  And there are also indications that this wave COULD ship before the 2011 Toy Fair.  So, seeing how there are no major media events between now and February....can we expect to get some details or a sneak peek at Wave 5?  <Jedi Mind Trick>You want to tell us about Wave 5</Jedi Mind Trick>

ANSWER:  We will tell you about Wave 5. The first "mixed" wave will probably be out in January but there is a chance some folks could start finding it right before the end of the year.  The wave, however, is not that mixed with the figures being Cody's 212th Battalion Trooper (ball and socket hips), Luke Skywalker (EpIV, with Stormtrooper belt), Han Solo (EpIV), R5-D4 (EpIV), Stormtrooper (ball and socket hips), and Commander Gree (EPIII, a straight repack).  That will take us to Vintage #44.  After that, the waves become more mixed with figures from just about every movie.  Attached is the revised numbering and wave details for the new assortments.
