• Hasbro SDCC Star Wars Panel Q&A

      Here are the fan questions with Hasbro's answers, taken from Hasbro's Star Wars panel earlier today at Comic-Con.


      Will have new roleplay. have looked at Laser Tag but haven't felt it can work pricewise yet.


      Cliegg Lars? Not offlimits.


      Why freeze Jar Jar? Approrpiate to have fun with Jar Jar, paying tribute to the fan designed full size version.


      CW, how deep into the non animated line? They feel there's more opportunity, definitely more on their radar in the non-animated expression. Lucasfilm doesn't see it as a separate story, all the same so it makes possible.


      Mandalorian Assault Transport? No, it should not be availbe now, shipped in very small numbers but the switchover to the movie line couldn't get it back, but it is on their list to get it back out, but not in the wild.


      TOR figures, any more? Wait for Celebration.


      Protective cases for the figures? No. Too expensive for mainline.


      No exclusive for C6.


      Why WM didn't get Vintage exclusives, because of 3d line they got.


      Prequel retro line? Derryl would love to play with the idea, but they have so much to work with right now, some are quite niche, most fans tell them to go forward instead. Will they never? Dunno, but no plans, but won't rule them out. As a designer, Erik got some of that itch out with the 12" figures.


      Off limits? Nothing strictly offlimit, but some are problematic. No magic in stone list that should never be made.


      BAD at Disneyworld, expand to california? Possibility, but not aware of it going on, but they know it's going well there. Definite possibility. Disney is a good partner.

      And that's it, a very friendly and well-oiled Q&A panel for Hasbro this year.

      Rogue One cards

      Weirdest part of this set: cards #66 and #67 have the same caption, with different images and card back wording.

      And, some (actually several)

      One checkout, one register. That really slowed it down.

      The "other" SW canonical fiction Thread

      Finished reading Cross Current and Riptide by Paul Kemp. Read Riptide first, but the plot made more sense after a point in Cross Current. Not bad SW novels.

      Rogue One cards

      These odd-colored borders just drive me nuts. All I want is a complete set; the color of the border doesn't matter to me.
