October 2009 Hasbro Star Wars Q&A (Part Two)

October 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. A follow-up question to the protective cases answer on http://www.toymania.com/news/messages/11504.shtml - if you do not plan to have bulk packs made for the new card size perhaps you could share where they got the protective cases for the Forces Unleashed Storm trooper commander and the Luke Skywalker Comic Con exclusive. They both have the correct size protective case that we're all now searching for.

Answer: We created a case for those figures based on the new card size, but we don't plan to make the cases available for sale in bulk packs. The demand for the first ones has been soft, and until those move through we will not be committing to more inventory of protective clam shells.

2. You now have an original sculpt of a railgun for The Clone Wars. Any chance of seeing that gun modified to remove the launching missile and given to a Clone Trooper in regular Legacy line? (This would replace the heavy gunner Clone from the Hunt for General Grievous battle pack that came with an old, GI Joe railgun.)

Answer: We could do that, but it's unlikely we'd remove the launching missile. We would likely just tool up a non-functioning version. No plans right now, however, although it's a good figure for the future.

3. The Lumiya and Sigel Dare comic packs have been very difficult to find, and even on ebay have been showing up infrequently. Will these hard-to-find packs be shipping in larger quantities in the near term, perhaps in newer case assortments? I have noticed even Hasbro Toy Shop has yet to stock these particular comic packs.

Answer: They will continue to ship until the new waves are ready - so there are more on the way.

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