The latest round of questions sent out to Hasbro now have their answers...
Don't 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.
Q. Will there be another outlet to aquire the coins next year other than having to buy figures we already have? Perhaps mail-order, POP redemtion, or some other service? Alot of fans are excited about the re-release of the coins, but aquiring a whole set would mean purchasing figures we might already have. I think using 30th anniversary figure POP's for redemption would be a good solution since we would still have to buy figures to redeem for the coins we are missing. Any thoughts on this?
A. There will not be another way to acquire basic figure coins other than getting them with the basic figures.
Q. The sculps of many of the arrmy-building figures have gotten quite better over the past few years (biker scout, snowtrooper, rebel troops, etc). Are there any plans for more army builder packs like we saw with the stormtroopers, sandtroopers, and rebel troopers?
A. The battle packs have been an answer to some of this (for example, the Tantive IV pack). However, we would rather have a rich variety of army builder figures offered as basic figures to facilitate fans being able to scale up as they want. We do not plan to go back to the 4-pack model from the past, simply because we understand the troop building affinity and will seek ways to get great troop builders at mass retail.
Q. Will Hasbro have a presence at Celebration Europe, or only at CIV?
A. We will be at both shows.
Check back next week and we'll post the next round of Questions (and answers) as soon as Hasbro offers them.
