• 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.

      I'm not sure if it occurred to me before, but last night I realized how similar the the phrase is to Brennan's "I don't know what that means."

      Just as the credits were to go, I wondered if there'd be a voice-over that said "Oh, THAT'S what that means!"

      I predict another

      Well, I've pointed at the screen while guy says, "What's that mean?" for the last time.

      So his name isn't really Han Solo...

      I can see the tagline now... twice the smuggler, twice the scoundrel, twice the pilot... meet... Han Duo!

      His name is Hans Olo. They spelled it wrong on his driver's license and he didn't think it was worth fussing over.

      Maybe he's related to Boba Fett! I'm sure someone would think that was neat..

      Or maybe we'll find out that Woody Harrelson was the first

      How did you spend your Saturday?

      The week before, I was in an X-Wing Miniatures tournament at a local game store. There were ten competitors. I won one of my four games, but the win

      He's an Organa, so his name should be Han Organa Solo Organa; and he's Leia's step-brother husband. It's meant to explain Kylo's messed-up attitude?

      I didn't see a thread for the new Han Solo movie, and I couldn't find a post about this.

      Why can't I post pics right now?

      Oh, yeah, it is acting squirrelly, I'll have it looked into.
