Hasbro's Answers to SSG's Questions
Hasbro answered all of the questions we sent in a week ago, and here come the results.
Thanks to all the folks who sent in questions and the handful that actually voted last week.
Let's get to Hasbro's answers:
Q: Are there more new Vintage-Style figures coming, and if so, when can we expect them?
A: Not in 2006, but we're looking at what opportunities might exist for expanding the Vintage figure assortment in 2007.
Q: Will we be seeing more figures from the Expanded Universe, especially characters beyond just clonetrooper repaints?
A: Yes. There are great characters in the Expanded Universe and we plan to include some of these in 2007. Stay tuned!
Q: Have you considered new playset ideas, especially modular playsets so collectors can build larger playsets from smaller sets?
A: A scaling playset is a great idea. There has been a lot of discussion internally on whether this could be successful in today's market. However, we continue to see diminished demand for playsets. If we ever see the landscape changing, it's something we could take a look at in the future.
