    QUESTIONS FOR HASBRO - round 26

    Please post your VOTE for up to 6 {six} of the questions provided in this thread, letting us know which ones you most want to see asked on Friday, March 9th, March 23rd April 5th. Keep in mind that your votes in round 25 do not count in this round, so if your question is still on the list, you may want to vote for it again.

    Also, feel free to post new questions. For reference, here are Hasbro's answers from previous SSG questions; and from other sites. And here are the questions we asked last round:
    • - Last time we asked this question in October, you said " We won't be answering any more specific questions on the 2007 line at this time. However, she is definitely a possible future figure. Not out of the question." However, now that Toy Fair has come and gone, can you tell us what the odds are that we will see Yarna D'al Gargan in 2007?
    • - When Episode II came out, there was a big fuss made about Hasbro using Realscan technology as an advanced guide assisting in the sculpting process - especially for heads and accessories. In the 5 years after, how often has Realscan been used since then, how helpful has it been, what are some of the most common drawbacks when using it for you, and what is the figure or figure's accessory that is closest to the Realscan source data?
    • - In the past, figures have included interlocking bases that can create larger diorama pieces. Will we see more of these in the future?
    • - The Galactic Heroes line has really taken off with kids and collectors alike, however the most "kid-friendly" film in the saga - Ep I: The Phantom Menace - is heavily underrepresented with the only offerings being re-releases of the now-defunct Playskool line and 1 new Maul set. Characters like Jar Jar Binks, Sebulba, and Qui-Gon Jinn seem like obvious choices for the line. Will there be more Episode I offerings in the future?
    • - Will Academy outfit Biggs from wave 3 have his cape, and if not, why?
    • - In a future release, would it be possible to re-release Dannik Jerriko with the holes in his face (the ones caused by the removable proboscises) filled in?
    Current questions (vote for up to 6):
    1. - Having met some of you at SD Comic-Con, where I've been able to talk to you and learn all sorts of things about the struggle involved in making these toys, I wonder if maybe you'd consider sharing a lot more of that with collectors in general? If not, why? - asked by Plasticfetish
    2. - Back when you were posting updates about the Fan's Choice figure development on your site, it did a lot to generate interest. Any chance that you'd go back to doing something like that? If not, why?
    3. - I've seen the Kenner and Galoob logos on a few things lately. Is that just a "special" thing, or are we looking to see a relaunch of some old brands?
    4. - Are more properties aside from Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Marvel, and Transformers planned for the Titanium Series lines?
    5. - Canadaian collectors miss out on a many of the US-only store exclusives. Any chance Canadians could have every exclusive figure/vehicle/combination made available on shop.starwars.com after their shelf runs in the US stores?
    6. - Is there any possibility of seeing a 7" Unleashed Clone Wars Animated wave?
    7. - What is the status of the Holiday line? Any thoughts to a release of a Padme & Anakin with baby Luke manger type of scene?
    8. - With talk about the Expanded Universe figures returning in 2007, are the EU figures going to be short-packed like TSC's Scorch or will there be enough for everyone?
    9. - If Hasbro feels that mid-sized vehicles is the way to go, then will we be seeing more airspeeders and landspeeders in the forseeable future? Some of the airspeeders are pretty much snubfighter sized.
    10. - Eventually will all the Episode III Clone Commanders be released as an entire set?
    11. - With the release of the George Lucas in Stormtrooper Disguise and the Lucas Family Collection, can we expect to see a George Lucas the Director action figure in his trademarked flannel shirt and perhaps variations of old and young Lucas?
    12. - Has Hasbro considered taking figures that were released in the original Kenner vintage line that have already been remade with modern VOTC quality (example: OTC Cloud Car Pilot) and packaging them on VOTC-style packaging, perhaps for a lower price than new-mold VOTC go for (msrp $10)?
    13. - Are there going to be any more silver 'raw metal' Titanium 3" ships like the silver Slave I, 5-pack Millennium Falcon, 5-pack Death Star, etc.?
    14. - Since we've seen Star Wars crossovers with Transformers done in the Star Wars Transformers line, the Attacktix line, a Galactic-Heroes-styled line, and even some might argue the Titanium Series line; and Marvel Superheroes now have Titanium and Galactic Hero-styled entries, will we get other kinds of crossover entries, perhaps GI Joe Galactic Heroes? Star Wars, Transformers, and GI Joe all had their first comic ties to Marvel, so it'd be... uh... "perfect"!
    15. - Though you said you wouldn't be releasing any new Separatist Leaders or Neimoidians in 2007 does this include repaints and retools of existing ones?
    16. - What does Hasbro think about using the New Jedi Order (Yuuzhan Vong) series of novels for source material for the Expanded Universe collection?
    17. - Since the upcoming Saesee Tiin's Jedi Starfighter is an orange version of the AOTC ship, does this lower the chances of getting the green & gray (with yellow droid) ROTS version of his ship as seen in the Clone Wars cartoon episode 23, or is it possible that we will still see one in the future?
    18. - Since the AAT has been rereleased with the mid-sized vehicles, will the similarly-sized TX-130 Saber-class tank - seen in the Star Wars: Clone Wars and Battlefront videogames - ever be made? The vehicle was even used for both Republic and Imperial troops in Battlefront II.
    19. - Any chance of ever seeing the Ultra Battle Droid made that appears in the Clone Wars Adventures Volume 1 comic story Heavy Metal Jedi?
    20. - Understanding you don't want to divulge specific figures, can you tell us how many (if any) figures in the 30th Anniv. line will have running-change variant figures, a la The Saga Collection Endor Rebel Soldiers?
    21. - The images released of the 30th Anniv. wave 2 carded and loose Death Star Trooper show him coming with the standard E-11 Stormtrooper blaster, however in A New Hope these troopers are shown sporting the DH-17, the blaster most often used by the Rebels (this blaster is even represented in this same wave with the Rebel Honor Guard and Biggs figures). Will the Death Star Trooper figure ship with the correct DH-17 blaster or continue with the E-11 shown in the photo sample, and if it's the latter, why?
    22. - Any chance that Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast will get together and pack in WOTC's Star Wars minatures with Hasbro basic figures?
    23. - Any chance that we could get a new Rancor, perhaps packed with a Dathomir Witch or Sith Witch instead of Luke?
    24. - In recent years, many Darth Vader figures have included a silver piece of material around the neck to represent the chain that holds Vader's cape on. However, every time this feature has been included, the "chain" ends up looking too big and out-of-place, while Vader figures that do not include this chain end up looking much better. In the interest of accuracy, could the chain either be scaled down (to better match its look in Episodes III, V, and VI), or done as sculpted plastic (as on earlier incarnations), or simply left off (as in Episode IV) on future Darth Vader figures?
    25. - What are the chances of getting the Scorpenek Annihilator Droid from the New Essential Guide to Droids?
    26. - With the excitement generated by Sideshow's 12" figure line, does Hasbro have any regrets about cancelling their 12" line, especially since it's clear that there is a strong market for high-quality 12" Star Wars figures? Did Hasbro recognize a deficiency in their 12" Star Wars product which didn't meet consumer's expectations of quality leading to a lack of success, and was that a chief factor behind the decision to end it? Is there anything that in hindsight Hasbro would have done differently with the 12" line to keep it in-house?
    27. - With 2007 being focused on the 30th Anniversary Collection, what plans if any are being made for 2008?
    28. - In the Betrayal on Felucia Battlepack, why wasn't the corrected or more movie accurate variation of Commander Bly with brown accents used?
    29. - In the carded and loose sample photos for the upcoming ANH Ceremony Luke, the figure has Darth Vader's lightsaber hilt plugged into his belt? (The carded photo it's even clear-banded onto his waist.) Is this merely an example of sample images with the wrong accessories, or if not, why does Hasbro keep giving the incorrect lightsaber hilt accessories to some figures? The VTSC X-wing Pilot Luke also had the Vader hilt on his belt. At the very least, shouldn't you paint the incorrect saber to match the correct one?
    30. - Will you ever be rereleasing the Geonosian Starfighter, perhaps as a repaint? The ship had only a small release in a non-movie line and could use a rerelease. If so, is there anything you can do to strengthen the droopy dual-nose issue? This is a great mold with a very nifty exclusive pilot figure, but that droopy nose thing detracts from this cool set.
    31. - In the Ambush on Ilum Battlepack, the C-3PO figure is gold, but during this sequence in the Clone Wars cartoon he was the same gray colors he was in Attack of the Clones. Why was the figure chosen to be in the inaccurate gold? The vac-metallized gold costs more to make even so this seems to run counter to a main goal of the battle pack line. Will we see a running change in the correct colors, or will it stay wrong? If this is just another example of "it's what we had on hand", could you walk us through the decision-making process that ok's something inaccurate like this?
    32. - Some collectors missed out on the Vintage-style figures and now must look to ebay and other wretched hives of scum and villainy for these fine figures. What is the likelihood of seeing any or all of those Vintage-style figures rereleased and getting more of collectors' money directly? (They'd prefer to give it to you rather than overpriced after-market guys.)
    33. - Will the Battle Droid Commander in the Saga Legends line have a backpack or just the antennas? And will we be getting a Geonosis Battle Droid Commander in the Saga Legends line like the regular colored Commander?
    34. - Why do hologram figures come with weapons when they're almost never shown using weapons in the holograms in the movies?
    35. - Now that we've seen photos of the new Jedi Luke figure with cloth vest, what can you tell us about him? Is it an all new sculpt? Is his Death Star 2 costume on underneath the vest, is the vest and outer belt removable? What accessories will he have? What are the chances of seeing him repacked without the vest?
    36. - Concerning Titanium Series 3" repaints, will the Titanium AT-RT get another release with a repainted green & brown driver the way the repainted Clone Swamp Speeder did with its pilots? And will we be seeing the Titanium AOTC Jedi Starfighter repainted in all the color schemes the figure scale one has come in (Clone Wars teal, Saesee Tiin's, Kit Fisto's), the way it is currently slated for a Plo Koon repaint?
    37. - What are the chances of seeing mult-packs for the Titanium Series 3" vehicle line where the package can double as a play environment similar to the recent Galactic Heroes line's 3 battle packs? Concepts like multipacks of the Trench run, Battle above Endor, Battle above Coruscant, etc., with play environment packaging and the appropriate repacked vehicles.
    38. - The movie scene photo on the back of The Saga Collection #50 Naboo Soldier's card shows characters in red versions of the same uniform, was this considered for a variation during production, or perhaps will we be seeing it in an upcoming year?
    39. - The Snowspeeder has only been an exclusive item in the past two releases for it where prior releases were regular mass-retail. Why the exclusivity and accompanying higher pricepoint on this vehicle? If it's due to its somewhat large size compared to other vehicles, could it be scaled down to accurate proportions (since it is actually a little too large as-is) and released in the $20 line?
    40. - Many fans feel that the Super Articulated Clone Trooper mold from the ROTS line is the best version of this figure, however there are several problems with the sculpt that continue to show up including: upside-down belt packs, one elbowpad strap smaller than the other, different-heights on the knee joints and a 1mm variance from the left to right upper leg leading to leaning figures, and an asymmetrical "cheek" sculpt on the helmet. Will these issues ever be addressed on future figures?
    41. - Will Hasbro be re-releasing the straight sections of the cantina bar in the near future to coincide with the release of the curved end pieces coming out? If so, please consider re-releasing the blue Snaggletooth from the K-Mart exclusive as well.
    42. - Will the moisture vaporator be available only with this upcoming Luke figure so those who want multiples of this accessory will need to buy multiple Lukes, or will there be other ways to get it in the foreseeable future? (One possibility is to reuse the accessory with Ep 2 Owen Lars, Beru Whitesun, and Cliegg Lars figures.)
    43. - Recently, several unique figures and accessories have been released in boxed sets (multi-packs, vehicles) - for example: Zev Senesca, removable-helmet Snowtrooper, white AT-RT Driver, the Geonosian energy binders, etc.. As many collectors who have been with the line for 12 years haven't wanted to purchase (for example) yet another Snowspeeder they already had just to get a new figure, have you given any thought to releasing these figures separately, either carded or as hasbrotoyshop.com exclusives?
    44. - Since Boba Fett from the Holiday Special has now been revealed, and POTJ Zutton is actually taken from the Holiday Special as well, is there a possibility for other figures from the show, most notably the cantina scene?
    45. - Why didn't the Kashyyyk Elite Corps Clone Trooper from The Saga Collection come with the long blaster rifle the figure is shown holding on the figure photo on the back of the card? That is the weapon a number of these troopers sported in the movie, yet the figure only comes with the Biker Scout pistol and the Clone Trooper blaster pistol.
    46. - Why have there been so few Ep 2 & 3 Anakin figures with accurate likenesses of Hayden Christensen?
    47. - There has been some confusion about the upcoming Vintage-style Han Solo in Hoth gear figure, specifically his headgear. Pictures from Toy Fair show a version with a removable hat/goggles combination, but will the figure also be able to wear the hood-up look that covered the hat in the movie, and if so, how will this be achieved? If not, why is the movie-accurate hood-up look not being utilized here? What was it about Vintage-style Han Hoth's hood-up accessory which made Lucasfilm pull approval of that item?
    48. - The Titanium Series line has shared its space with Battlestar Galactica license for some time now with much success. Can you give us a hint as to your plans for the future of this license? Also, what happened to the plans for the Titanium Forged Figure of the Cylon Centurion?
    49. - With the Titanium Series 3" Star Wars vehicle line, there's been a growing problem on the pegs consistently reported from all across the nation. At each of the 3 major retailers (TRU, Target, Wal-mart), the Titanium 3" Transformers figures - even though they ship in separate cases under unique assortment numbers meant for separate spots in stores planograms - often end up getting placed on the Star Wars Titaniums' pegs by employees because the packaging is the same unique shape and both lines sport the "Titanium Series" badge at the top. That ends up mixing 2 dissimilar lines together, burying and even choking off pegspace for the Star Wars Titaniums while slowing sales for the Transformers Titaniums. Your current solutions mentioned above (asst #s, planograms) don't seem to be enough at the retail level to ensure a separation of product which often means no pegspace for Star Wars Titaniums so they don't get put on shelves as often - can you do something else to ensure that Star Wars Titaniums aren't overwhelmed at the pegs by Transformers Titaniums?
    50. - Are there folks today at Hasbro who were working on the Star Wars line back when it was reborn in 1995? Was there any clue behind-the-scenes back then that the Star Wars toy line would garner such a huge adult collector following? Were adult collectors considered at all on any level back then when forging the line's beginnings? What do you folks think of the extensive adult collector enthusiasm for the line today, 12 years later?
    51. - In the Toys R Us-exclusive Bantha with Tusken Raiders boxed set, the Bantha's pelt appears inaccurate with curly fur and the eyeholes not cut or attached correctly, compared to the movie character and the original POTF2 Bantha that this is based upon. What is the reason for the unattractive visible eyeholes and bizarre curly fur? Also, if boxed Star Wars items sell better the closer they are to $20, why turn the Bantha into a larger $45 set?
    52. - Recently, you were quoted about a Battle Pack with 2 figures and 2 speederbikes as saying it "is not part of the same Battle Pack line that is at all retailers. We are open to thinking of figure/vehicle packs like this for ideas further down the road. Stay tuned…" and we've since also seen the Bantha/Tusken Raiders Battle Pack that fits within the concept. With Toy Fair now behind us, what are some plans for these future non-traditional Battle Packs?
    53. - In the rumored upcoming TRU exclusive Geonosis beasts pack which supposedly includes the Acklay, Reek and Nexu, would the Nexu and Reek retain their electronic sounds or would those features be absent? Also, would the Acklay's weak legs problem be fixed so that it can stand on its own, along with the irregular jointing of the hips where some move vertically and others move horizontally (adding ratcheting swivels to the legs just below the universal-joints would probably solve this)? And will there figures included in this set as well as creatures, and if so which ones?
    54. - Similar to the Toys R Us exclusive AT-ST that came with a speeder bike, have you ever thought about doing a vehicle multipack? Getting two or three vehicles in one package would be awesome. How about a pair of X-wings?
    55. - Why is it that Hasbro produces some vehicles that are incredibly difficult, even impossible, to fit regular figures inside such as the Ep 1 Flash Speeder, or Ep 2 Zam's & Anakin's Speeder?
    56. - In the vintage line, Kenner included a cloak with Bib Fortuna that was made out of a wonderful material that lay down closely to the body of the figure. The modern cloaks leave a lot to be desired, as it appears a number of materials have been tried but all leaving much to desire. Why not use the material that was in the Bib cloak?
    57. - Might we ever get the Mustafar hovering lava harvesting platform for the Mustafar Lava Miner, Obi-Wan, and Anakin as Vader to ride on, perhaps also coming with the lava panning droid for Vader to ride on top of? Granted, the hovering platforms were done in the Mustafar playset, but those seemed too small and lacking in accurate detailing.
    58. - Will the troop-builder clones from the Order 66 2-packs, Treachery on Saleucami Battle Pack, Betrayal on Felucia Battle Pack, and Mace Windu's Attack Battalion Battle Pack ever be released as basic figures?
    59. - Will Anakin's Jedi Starfighter and the regular Jedi Starfighter from the Clone Wars line ever be re-released?
    60. - Twice during the prequels, a vehicle toy's MSRP was dropped significantly without any changes to its mold - the first being the Episode I Naboo Royal Starship which went from $100 to $50, and the second being the Republic Gunship which in the Saga line was $40 but subsequent releases were $30. What were the causes of these price drops? Why hasn't this happened with other vehicles in similar high pricepoints?
    61. - Why are basic carded figures so much more expensive in relation to battle packs that have 5 figures in them? A battle pack which MSRPs for $19.99 and has 5 figures, or 4 plus a larger accessory of some kind, costs less than 3 carded figures (who MSRP at $6.99 a piece). Any chance that the MSRP might be dropping on the single basic carded figures in the near future?
    62. - For Star Wars' 30th anniversary this year, the US Postal Service painted hundreds of mailboxes to look like R2-D2. Might Hasbro create a figure of R2-D2 as a mailbox to commemorate this quirky postal tribute, perhaps a 2-pack with Major Derlin as a mailman (since Derlin was played by John Ratzenberger who for 11 years portrayed know-it-all mailman Cliff Clavin on the sitcom Cheers)?
    63. - A number of questions about the possibility of seeing specific figures vehicles realized as toys have met with answers about their chances largely hinging on whether or not they appear in the upcoming Star Wars tv shows. Hypothetically, if Lucas changed his mind tomorrow and decided the Clone Wars and live action Star Wars shows were just not going to happen at all, what would happen with those potential toy concepts, and how would Hasbro's general outlook on the future of the Star Wars line change?
    64. - As this is the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars' release and your line this year is called the "30th Anniversary Collection", now seems the best time to ask this one: what are the chances that we'll be getting a figure of the very first person ever seen in all of Star Wars, the white-haired Rebel Fleet Trooper who shows worry and then steadies to hold off the Stormtroopers for control of the Tantive IV? This would also be a great chance to do a new, better-articulated Rebel Fleet Trooper body.
    65. - In a recent question about the new Vintage-style clamshells, you were quoted as answering "The clamshells will be sealed, like the majority of last year's run." However, the heat-sealed Vintage-style Saga Collection clamshells were generally rendered unusably damaged once the seals were opened, thus defeating the main purpose of the supposedly-reusable clamshell packaging that is part of the significantly-increased Vintage-style pricepoint. So will that issue be taken into account, or are collectors going to have to damage the clamshells to access the contents within?
    66. - The preview pictures and images from Toy Fair of the Vintage-style Snowtrooper show a cloth "skirt" on the figure that is shaped significantly differently from the movie version. This looks like a great figure, but we don't want an awesome sculpt to be held back by lesser "soft goods". Will you be fixing/altering the cloth skirt so that the VTAC Snowtrooper hits shelves as accurate as can be? If not, why not?
    67. - Now that you've redone many of the ESB Bounty Hunters, such as the upcoming IG-88, Bossk, and rumored 4-LOM, when will we be getting an all new Zuckuss?
    68. - With there being so much competition in regards to high end collecting with other licensees, has Hasbro considered perhaps making the figures' accessories out of metal like the already established saber hilts from the 2002 Saga line? (This was even recently used again with the reissued Sith Training Darth Maul from the end of the TSC line.) They could also do it this time with blasters and other non-lightsaber accessories as well.
    69. - Will we be getting a new Hoth Rebel Trooper in the foreseeable future? We've got a new, high-quality Snowtrooper coming finally but the Rebel side of the battle hasn't been well-represented in quite a while. The last version was in the 2004 Saga line and was very short (shorter than the protocol droid R-3PO from the same wave even), had little usable articulation, was overly preposed, and had an odd face. It seems like most of the other OT troopers have gotten decent figures in the past few years except the Hoth Rebel Trooper, the Hoth battle scenes are very 1-sided over this, when will it be his time?

    I'd like to toss this one out if it's not too close to one that's been asked before:

    Are there any plans to produce at least the major speaking characters who have not been made before (especially the Lars family, Jocasta Nu, Jira, Tey How, and Torryn Farr) in the near future?
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    We've asked that in 2 different ways...

    SSG, July 14th:
    Q: With so many high-demand characters with speaking roles in the movies that have not yet been made (such as Tey How, Tagge, Ask Aak, Jocasta Nu, Lando in Smuggler's Gear, Queen Jamilla), why do you produce new sculpts, not just re-releases of existing sculpts, for minor characters who were done adequately in the past and who have five seconds or less of screen time (eg, Hammerhead, Garindan, Bossk, Dengar)?
    A: The selection of figures for a wave or the year is always a balancing act to keep the widest possible fan (kid and collector) traction in the brand. In many cases the characters you listed as being re-released are more popular than the ones you suggested for new figures overall. While we do like many of the figures you mentioned, and some or all will probably see the light of day over the next few years, the fact is that Cantina aliens and Bounty Hunters are very high-demand segments of the Star Wars figure world. They stand out among others for their strong iconic nature and important role in taking us to a galaxy far, far away in Episodes IV and V.
    And ActionFigs.com, Oct 6th:
    Is it an objective of Hasbro's to eventually make every character that had a speaking role in the films - whether or not they interacted with core characters - into action figures? Nearly all these characters have been given names by Lucasfilm or EU authors.
    Not a stated objective, no. The objective is to field what we think is the overall best lineup each year between core character and collector-types. We may put a background character with no speaking part (Cantina or Jabba's Palace guys, or many droids) over someone with a speaking part just because it's a better or cooler figure.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    "We named the dog 'Chewbacca'!"
    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    What happened to the questions they postponed due to Toy Fair? Now everyone is two rounds behind; they better do a double-question week or something.

    I'll go with 17, 24, 31, 40, and two to save for later.

    [9]- If Hasbro feels that mid-sized vehicles is the way to go, then will we be seeing more airspeeders and landspeeders in the forseeable future? Some of the airspeeders are pretty much snubfighter sized.

    [26]- With the excitement generated by Sideshow's 12" figure line, does Hasbro have any regrets about cancelling their 12" line, especially since it's clear that there is a strong market for high-quality 12" Star Wars figures? Did Hasbro recognize a deficiency in their 12" Star Wars product which didn't meet consumer's expectations of quality leading to a lack of success, and was that a chief factor behind the decision to end it? Is there anything that in hindsight Hasbro would have done differently with the 12" line to keep it in-house?

    My picks

    20 - Understanding you don't want to divulge specific figures, can you tell us how many (if any) figures in the 30th Anniv. line will have running-change variant figures, a la The Saga Collection Endor Rebel Soldiers?

    29 - In the carded and loose sample photos for the upcoming ANH Ceremony Luke, the figure has Darth Vader's lightsaber hilt plugged into his belt? (The carded photo it's even clear-banded onto his waist.) Is this merely an example of sample images with the wrong accessories, or if not, why does Hasbro keep giving the incorrect lightsaber hilt accessories to some figures? The VTSC X-wing Pilot Luke also had the Vader hilt on his belt. At the very least, shouldn't you paint the incorrect saber to match the correct one?

    35 - Now that we've seen photos of the new Jedi Luke figure with cloth vest, what can you tell us about him? Is it an all new sculpt? Is his Death Star 2 costume on underneath the vest, is the vest and outer belt removable? What accessories will he have? What are the chances of seeing him repacked without the vest?

    42 - Will the moisture vaporator be available only with this upcoming Luke figure so those who want multiples of this accessory will need to buy multiple Lukes, or will there be other ways to get it in the foreseeable future? (One possibility is to reuse the accessory with Ep 2 Owen Lars, Beru Whitesun, and Cliegg Lars figures.)

    43 - Recently, several unique figures and accessories have been released in boxed sets (multi-packs, vehicles) - for example: Zev Senesca, removable-helmet Snowtrooper, white AT-RT Driver, the Geonosian energy binders, etc.. As many collectors who have been with the line for 12 years haven't wanted to purchase (for example) yet another Snowspeeder they already had just to get a new figure, have you given any thought to releasing these figures separately, either carded or as hasbrotoyshop.com exclusives?
