January 2009 Hasbro Star Wars Q&A

January 2009 - 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. Would Hasbro ever consider doing large-scale versions of some of the smaller figures? I don't mean 12" bodies with cloth costumes, like Sideshow does and Hasbro used to do, but literal larger versions of some of the best figures. 4-ups, let's say.

Answer: It's highly unlikely at this point. We discontinued the Unleashed 8" format for the reason that the line only attracted a small following despite extraordinary production costs in terms of time and tooling. Any other collector-targeted size or format that we pursued would likely also attract a niche audience or take away focus on growing the primary 3-3/4" play pattern and other popular expressions we have in motion such as Star Wars Transformers and Galactic Heroes. We will continue working with Sideshow on their 12" figure program.

2. Will we see a figure of the Clone Wars Mon Calamari Jedi, Nahdarr Vebb?

Answer: There is no Nahdarr Vebb figure planned.

3. Would Hasbro consider doing Star Wars-themed fashion dolls again? Especially now with more female characters to choose from in Clone Wars, it could be a broader line than just Leia and Padme.

Answer: We would not consider pursuing fashion dolls again. The primary audience for Clone Wars remains boys and (secondarily) their dads.
