Hasbro's Questions & Answers #3
Date: June 23, 2006 at 05:24 PM ET
round of answers to our questions are in...
forget, you can submit
questions in our forums and we'll try to get as many as possible submitted to
Hasbro. We can send only three questions per week, so make sure they are good ones! Now,
on to this weeks Questions and Answers directly from Hasbro.
Are there any plans for making a Darth Sidious electronic lightsaber?
A. I doubt it. The problem is the tiny hilt and blade, which do not make a heroic
statement to kids. I know Yoda says "Judge me by my size, do you?" but
it's not very high on the kid demand list for lightsabers.
Q. Can you tell
us when the Fan Choice figure for 2006 will be announced?
A. Very timely question ... the Fans' Choice poll that Toy Fare recently conducted
was driven entirely by the fans and the results were a true measure of the top figures
that fans want to see made. I'd love to go into more detail, but look for Toy Fare
to reveal the scoop in their July on-sale issue.
Q. The UGH George Lucas
Stormtrooper program has had its pluses and minuses. Now that the bulk of the
initial stages of this program are behind us, can you say that you will be offering
a similar program next year?
A. We will be offering a Vintage line in 2007. However, we have not yet determined
the specific promotion that will support the release -- or even if there will be
a promotion. Details will be realesed as things are finalized.
Check back next week and we'll post the
next round of Questions (and answers) as soon as Hasbro offers them.
