May 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. Every major character in the movies has received a Mighty Mugg with one exception: Padme! Is she coming and when?
Answer: There is a Queen Amidala figure in the Mighty Muggs line, but that is the only Padme that will come out for the line.
2. As a Star Wars collector, I have ALOT of figures. What I don't have is a great way to store them. Back in the old days, there were vinyl cases with plastic holders that worked great. Is there anyway to re-issue (or even better, make new ones) these so we have some way to store our figures?
Answer: We don't plan on re-releasing the vinyl carry cases, but we are looking into a re-release of the Darth Vader carrying case. If that's not your cup of tea, then we recommend storage boxes like the type that are used to organize small household objects, found in the home section of stores like Target. These are clear, and can hold up to a couple dozen figures. They don't have trays like the vinyl cases, but they are modular and relatively inexpensive.
3. Are there plans to re-release the recent Death Star Trooper figure as a repaint of the vintage Death Squad Commander/Star Destroyer Commander figure?
Answer: We are saving that one for a possible re-release should we ever relaunch the Vintage line. With the nostalgic package, it would make the most sense.
