Star Wars Q&A
Here are the answers to the questions we've sent in for September 2010.
Q: Are we still getting a ROTJ Sandstorm Leia to go along with Han, Luke and Chewie? If yes, when?
A: Yes, a Sandstorm Leia figure will be out at the end of 2011.
Q: What was it that you got away with from SDCC and Celebration V that people wanted you to release the most? And what complaints did you hear the most?
A: Both shows were outstanding this year, as enthusiasm is running high for the 30th Anniversary of Empire Strikes Back, the return of Vintage, the AT-AT, and a new season of Clone Wars. It's a great time to be a Star Wars fan and a fan of Star Wars toys! As to some specifics, fans seemed very excited about video game figures, especially those from The Force Unleashed II and The Old Republic. As for complaints, there weren't a lot but some people were sad to see the Droid Factory figures wind down, which many folks seem to feel was one of our strongest pack-ins ever. We were especially thrilled to see the sheer number of fans who came and traded parts with us to complete their droids, and kids who shared some of their kit-bashed droids using various parts. That is exactly the spirit that excited us about concepts like that, and our gears are turning on ways to bring back some aspect of Droid Factory in the future.
