March 2008 Hasbro Star Wars Q&A (Part Two)

March 2008 - Every couple of weeks, Hasbro will answer three questions per web site about their Star Wars products. Here are the questions and answers for the latest round:

1. Why do the Walmart exclusives seem to be so scarce? The Jabba's Palace entertainers showed up in Michigan for the first time the first week of March, 2008. In other parts of the country they've already been clearanced out. The exclusive comic packs still can't be found around here. This doesn't seem to happen with the Toys R Us and Target exclusives, although last year's Target exclusive battle packs did go very fast.

Answer: Not all WM stores will carry Star Wars exclusives, due to different store layouts (amount of space decidated to toys) or the relative strength of the store as it indexes to Star Wars sales. In other cases, it may take a while for the exclusives (or any item in general) to actually get out of the distribution center, and, once in store, to get out of the back room to shelves. We have no other explanation for why the Jabba's Palace sets you saw actually got to the shelf months after most other stores had theirs.

2. Why do the build-a-droid R7 droids have jet boosters on them and will they be removable?

Answer: We added them to put additonal play and functionality in the Droid Factory figures. The good news is that yes, they are removable.

3. Regarding the SW Legacy Line's Bane Malor, is the bandolier covering his chest removable? Also, is the helmet removable? And is the head ball-jointed?

Answer: The bandolier will not be removable, nor will the helmet be (there is no face sculpted for him). The head will be ball-jointed and can be removed.

Be sure to check out the previous Q&As as well.
