Here is a simple way for Hasbro to make some SERIOUS cash with little or no expense to the company.

Reproduce the following figures from existing molds on their original cards. These are guaranteed money makers that could be sold in a non-movie year. Since they have already been done, the cost of mfg. would be significantly less than the cost of R and D for new figures. In addition, these are figures that many kids would also like to get, because many are core characters or just have cool features that kids like. Here is the list:

Power of the Force:

CommTech figures:

3X Admiral Motti

3X Princess Leia

3X R2-D2 with holo Liea

3X Stormtrooper

Cinema Scenes:

Freeze Frame:

3X Leia Hoth

3X AT-AT Driver

3X Death Star Droid

3X Pote Snitkin

6X Ree-Yees

6X Death Star Trooper

4X Darth Vader (First Pose)

4X Stormtrooper

4X Snowtrooper

4X AT-ST Driver

4X TIE Fighter Pilot

4X Grand Moff Tarkin

4X Emperor Palpatine

4X Emperor's Royal Guard

4X Garindan

4X Ishi Tib

4X Zuckuss

4X Captain Piett

6X Darth Vader with Removable Helmet

6X Boba Fett

12X Weequay

12X Sandtrooper

Expanded Universe:

3X Mara Jade

3X Luke Skywalker from Dark Empire

3X Princess Leia from Dark Empire

3X Imperial Sentinel from Dark Empire

3X Clone Emperor Palpatine from Dark Empire

3X Grand Admiral Thrawn from Heir to the Empire

3X Kyle Katarn from Dark Forces

3X Spacetrooper from Heir to the Empire

3X Dark Trooper from Dark Forces

Episode 1:

4X Pit Droid 2-pack

4X Queen Amidala (Naboo Battle)

4X Sio Bibble

4X Darth Sidious Hologram

4X Naboo Royal Guard (with removable helmet)

4X Jar-Jar Binks (Naboo Swamp)

4X TC-14

4X R2-B1

4X Yoda with Episode 1 on the card

Cinema Scene:

8X Watto's Box

Power of the Jedi:

6X Battle Droid (Security)

6X Battle Droid (Boomer Damaged)

6X Scout Trooper (Clean)

6X Scout Trooper (Dirty)

6X Rebel Trooper (Tantive 4 Defender)

6X Imperial Officer

12X Sandtrooper (though you could sell more of these by changing the colors of their should pauldron, say 3 colors from the movie. You could pack 4 of each color per case.)

4X Coruscant Guard

4X Gungan Warrior

4X Mon Calamari Officer

3X Lando Calrissian

3X Jar-Jar Binks (Tatooine)

3X R2-Q5

3X Tessek

(AKA case # 84455.000 S) this supossedly shipped in May of 2001 but was hard to find.

These are broken down by suggested case assortment. You will find the mix is made up of "army builders" as well as "hard to find" merchandise.

If Hasbro were to put out these cases, they would be able to DOUBLE their revenue from the Star Wars line during non-movie years. These could be done inbetween shipments of new merchandise. After the initial release of the AOTC line, begining around fall of 2002 and ending in early 2005.

Just a thought. ;)
