    My bad. I just get so passionate about Ewoks, my judgment went right out the window.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Maybe they're thinking if they run another one they might get a more accurate poll. Their response to me seems like they didn't like the way the last poll went (maybe I'm reading that into it) Though I don't know if I like pre-selected choices.

    I certainly would like to see a Clegg. a new Barris and any of the movie figures they want to do.

    The last poll didn't have pre-selected choices, all the fan sites sent in ranked lists and those were combined to make the final poll selections.

    I didn't see where this was confirmed... what site asked this question? (I can never keep track because it seems there are always sites dropped and added every month)

    I know JT. Though I haven't been around lately, I was here for the last poll and participated. I was responding to Big B's mentioning that they had polls in the past with pre-selected choices.

    That answer was kind of off the mark. They asked if there was going to be an Episode 1 (tan) Vulture Droid repaint, and Hasbro responded with an ROTS one.

    CreatureCantina.com: Now that we’ve got a kicking new Starfighter-scale Vulture Droid sculpt, might you re-release it in the Episode I colour scheme some time down the road? - Beedo Sookcool, staff writer and liker of swarms of things
    Hasbro: Yes indeed, we do have plans for an Ep. III Vulture Droid deco down the road. Glad you like it!

    What a terrible answer. I hope that's a typo because as far as I can tell the previously released version is identical to what a ROTS Vulture droid would look like. Though, after reading around, I found a lot of misspellings and grammatical errors in this batch of responses... perhaps they were thrown together without double checking them? In which case, is it possible that was a typo and there really is a TPM version in the pipe? I bought two of the previous release, you could put me down for two more in TPM colors if that's the case....

    Oh sorry, I didn't follow the thread properly. Well, now we've got confirmation?

    I noticed that too, actually I noticed it at Disneyland on Saturday, they have the toy in a display case and after reading the answer you just cited, I let them convince me the existing one was the Ep 3 colors and seeing it at Disneyland the next day reminded me otherwise, to which I said "well, I guess they typed too many 'I's."

    The questions often come in with simple errors, typing "EP III" instead of "EP I" is pretty bad and if I were at CreatureCantina, I would ask Hunter PR (they are our go-between) to get clarification right away (which often works), but I'm fairly confident they meant Ep I. With 60 questions per round, and a full load of work, and the need to delegate questions across the whole SW team then gather them up, I don't hold it against them that there are typos now and then, and I usually correct them when they are our answers for clarity's sake. If you read the GI Joe or Transformers Q&A answers (yes, redundancy there, I know ) you don't see as many typos but you see far less quality and honesty in the answers, so I accept the trade-off.

    I'm sure they always meant to do the Ep 1 vulture droid color scheme and just released the Clone Wars one first to get the tooling budget paid for. They love to repaint the $25-pricepoint vehicles because they are popular sellers. I personally don't know if I'll buy another super Vulture Droid in those colors though, it's an ok toy but while I dug the brownish-green versions back in the day, they are a little old-school for my tastes now, and I prefer the smaller Ep 1 line's size against the Naboo Fighter (plus, the wings on the Ep 1 are set more centered than the Ep 3 version). It might come down to deco for me though, the Ep 1 needs weathering to stand out for me.

    Well, the Clone Wars vulture droid is actually a bit different from the ROTS version - pictures are out there, but the most obvious difference is that the Separatist logos on the ROTS version are much smaller and in a different part of the wing. It's a great ship so I'll be glad to have whichever version they repaint it to be.

    Minor differences won't help sell another one of these, especially a movie version without weathering.
