Rebelscum: As 2007 is the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, will we see a larger percent of Original Trilogy characters who have never been made before, compared to previous years? Characters like CZ-3, Hermi Oodle, Yarna Gargan, Tonnika Sisters, etc, would make great 30th anniversary presents!
Hasbro: Tough one to quantify, but I think that collectors will be very happy with the selection of new OT figures next year, including at least two that you mentioned.
My predictions are Hermi Odle and CZ-3.
Is there any way to use a softer plastic for some of the figures' hands (Hunt for Grievous Clonetroopers, various other Clonetroopers, etc.)? It's hard enough for an adult to put the weapons in their hands, almost impossible for a young kid.

If Umpass-Stay becomes a popular figure after its release, will you make more aliens from Jabba's Palace and Sail Barge like Kithaba, Sgt. Doallyn, and more Niktos and Weequays?
Star Wars is not about the characters or plot...its about people settling their differences with ungodly amounts of hate and violence.
would you guys ever consider any kind of tour of your manufacturing facilities and processes? maybe by way of a feature in the SW Insider or on SW.com Hyperspace? You sort of brushed on this during some of the fan's choice figure development periods but a really detailed overview of how figures and vehicles go from design to production to distribution would be very interesting.
on a similar note, what about a tour (again, online or in print)of the VAULT of your main office? how do you guys archive past pieces and unreleased treasures? and what about mock-ups of possible future toys--what do you do with those? where are they stored/displayed? (I envision some gorgeous, mirrored archival museum vault behind a giant door accessable only to the very few--but seriously, what are your offices really like regarding displays and pieces etc? or do you guys just have a bunch of boring cubes with toys all over them? )
finally, how big is the main SW team? ie sculpters, designers, marketers, paper-pushers, muckety-mucks? ever consider spotlighting yourselves in a little bit greater detail so the collecting community knows who you are--instead of the faceless, souless Hasbro entity?
Are you guys EVER going to make Knights of the Old Republic figures? They'd be a fans dream! C'mon! It's the best selling Star Wars video game ever! It has a HUGE fanbase! This would appeal to millions! Please? PLEASE?!?!
At least one: Darth Revan will be the Fan's Choice Figure next year.Originally Posted by DarthRevan211
Since you gave us insight to an all new Mace Windu figure next year, how about shedding some light on the possibilites of an all new Luke Jedi figure in his 'death star II' outfit? I remember reading the belt would have more detail to it, but are there any plans for him, say, next year?!
(Question (I don't know if this has been asked or not))
Would it be possible to explain why the 2006 VTSC Luke Skywalker Pilot figure was packaged with a Darth Vader Hilt? And if there is any way of obtaining the 'correct' Lightsaber Hilt?
