16bit.com: Are there plans for a Clone Wars-themed Mail-In in 2012? (Yes or no would be great if you can't give hints!) Hasbro: Not at this time.
16bit.com: Will any of the "Movie Heroes" features (light-up weapons, slashing actions) be added to the Clone Wars line? Hasbro: Not at this time.
BanthaSkull.com: We very much appreciate you sending your representatives to purge pegwarmers from retailers. Unfortunately, it appears only the sales floors were impacted, while backrooms and the distribution pipeline were still full of Sandtroopers & ROTS Clones and Wave 5. We have personally witnessed one high volume Target store which was replenished with a single case of Wave 5 on 10/6 and, as of the time of this submission (10/21), only the Grievous has sold. Wave 5 (which appears to not be particularly popular) has been in constant rotation
After a break in the schedule for September, Q&A is back. Every month, we get to ask Hasbro 2 questions. Back on October 21st we sent in 2 questions, and Hasbro has just sent us back the answers.
SSG: Since the release of the ROTJ wave Fall of 2010, there really wasn't much product for either line making a big appearance on shelves at any major retailer up until this September.

We've just received word from Hasbro that the questions we sent them back on September 16th will not be answered, as Hasbro has scuttled that entire round of Q&A. Hasbro sent word hours after the submission deadline for the October round, so we couldn't redirect the previous questions back. Here's how Hasbro puts it:
Thank you for your continued participation in Hasbro's Star Wars Q&A program. Hasbro understands that you've been waiting patiently for your outlet's responses

LEGO's 2012 offerings are still a few months away, but an early peek at what appears to be a high quality scan shows off the 2012 Star Wars sets, among others. These are, of course, still unconfirmed, and preliminary versions, but ultimately this looks like the real deal, so these are likely representative of what we'll be seeing for the first half of 2012.
There look to be 6 sets total all from the movies rather than Clone Wars, each set sporting 4 minifigs,

16bit.com: You guys seem to have a lot of easter eggs lately-- are these hints at toys to come? Attack Cycle Grievous has a lightsaber similar to Sha'a Gi's, while Seripas comes with what appears to be Rumi Paramita's sniper rifle. Are there any others we're missing out on? Hasbro: We all certainly love to drop the Easter Eggs in when we can. Another fun one coming up is that the Clone Wars Chewbacca comes with a Trandoshan Shotgun. Things like that are one of the most fun things about our jobs. Whether it's something more obvious like Ponda Baba's flippers or something more subtle like a figure coming with an updated version of their Vintage or POTF accessory, we love doing our part!

Just had an unpleasant little chat with the manager of one of my local Toys R Us stores. I had intended to buy about $90 of stuff with the 30% off Star Wars sale, but they weren't honoring the ad. Turns out the weekly flyer ad says "All Star Wars on Sale!" in 1 bubble, and "30% off these hot Star Wars toys!" in the second bubble, a bubble for "20% off all Star Wars video games", with a footnote bubble of "All action figures * All lightsabers * All lego & more!" and a final text footnote of "*Excludes Blu-rays

SSG: Last fall, Hasbro finally had to bite the bullet and raise pricing across the line, both movie product and Clone Wars. Retailers seemed to take an odd approach with the raised prices, showing many instances where they'd set a price even a dollar or two higher than what Hasbro was aiming for. Now the main line Vintage Collection figures go for
Collectors who preordered Sideshow's 12-inch Commander Bly Clone Trooper figure back in April are starting to receive their 15 day notice emails warning them about processing and shipping.

Thankfully, while writing this very article, I realized I myself need to change something in both my billing and shipping addresses, the first time I've ever needed to do that in all 6 years of my collecting
