April 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. It was mentioned in a Q&A last year that Hasbro had potential plans to re-release some of the figures that kept *just* missing out on winning the polls for Saga Legends such as Ephant Mon, Pablo-Jill, Sio Bibble, R3-A2, and Coleman Trebor. Are there any plans to get any of these figures back out to collectors in any form in 2008-2009?
Answer: We don't have any specific plans right now for these guys. If the opportunity beckons, for example in future waves of the new Saga Legends, they will be good candidates for inclusion.
2. Any chance of re-releasing the old Unleashed figures that were hard to find? Maybe as a Target exclusive ala the Luke & Vader versions from a few years ago?
Answer: We don't have any plans to re-release any more Unleashed 7". Not to say it won't ever happen, but our focus remains elsewhere.
3. Are there any OT battle packs scheduled for 2008? Possibly one featuring Jabba's skiff guards?
Answer: There are OTC battlepacks slotted for 2008 (and 2009), but none feature Jabba's Skiff Guards. Details on the new packs will be announced at San Diego Comic Con. We promise there WILL be some pleasant surprises for fans of the Original Trilogy.
