Hasbro Q&A for the week of July 26th
(Hasbro's Q&A schedule was interrupted by Comic-Con.)
Q: What's up with the female action figures? Some of the most collectible figures have been Padmes and Leias, yet it seems like Hasbro's policy is that there's no demand for female action figures such as other Padme outfits, AOTC Beru, Yarna d'al Gargan, Toryn Farr, etc.. Why is that?
A: Female character figures will play an integral part of future line releases, so you'll just have to stay tuned!
Q: Could troop builder figures be made available (indefinitely if possible) on Hasbro Toy Shop after they're taken out of regular circulation?
A: The preference would be to do more troop builder figures at retail, rather than DTC.
Q: The "Ewoks" tv-movies and cartoons were released on DVD last fall. Is there any chance of getting figures based on the Ewok movies and cartoons, especially Teek, Princess Kneesa (realistically-styled if possible), the Marauders, and the number of Ewoks who did not appear in ROTJ?
A: Not any time soon.
