Former TVC Figures To Be Considered For Future Basic Figure Releases

Posted by Paul | February 15, 2014 at 08:26 PM ET

So, I finally made my way to the wonderful Mr. Derryl DePriest, Hasbro's VP of Boys' Marketing, who amazingly didn't try to hide from my stack of questions or my ear to ear grin. I wanted to let our readers be aware of an exchange I had with him and what he is planning to do to ensure that it has a great chance of happening. Click through for more!

I walked up to Mr. DePriest like a lost puppy dog and I asked him "Derryl, is there anything you can do to get the Emperor's Royal Guard out to collectors again?"

He physically took out his notebook and thanked me for reminding him and he then proceeded to ask me what other figures are fans clamoring for. I can confirm that he wrote down the following figures to take back to the Star Wars team to eventually work into the line one way or the other. I asked him about how likely are these to be released and he explained very likely. I even encouraged him to check aftermarket prices for these on eBay and he said he would. The following is a list of TVC figures he will be hopefully adding to the basic figure line up one day.

Emperor's Royal Guard
Starkiller (but he is already confirmed in wave 6)
See-Threepio (VC06)
MagnaGuard (although Derryl didn't agree with me on this one)
Han Solo (Bespin Outfit)
ARC Trooper Commander
Ponda Baba (Walrus Man)
Rebel Soldier (Echo Base Battle Gear)
Bastila Shan (but she is already confirmed in wave 4)
Shae Vizla
