Hi Hasbro,

I was hoping that you might be able to somehow release the Rebel blaster sculpt that was included with the Rebel Trooper Tantive IV Defender prototype figure that was shown on the back of the figures cardbacks. I'm talking about the blaster that the kneeling Rebel Trooper has in the picture on the back of the cards. See links below for pics.

The Rebel blaster sculpt shown in the pics above is much more movie accurate in terms of both detail and scale than the Rebel blaster sculpt that was included with the regular release Rebel Trooper Tantive IV Defender found in retail stores. The Rebel blaster included with the regular release Rebel Trooper Tantive IV Defender was quite a bit too small and lacking in authentic detailing.

I'd really like to see the Rebel blaster sculpt pictured above released somehow. Maybe it could be released with some of the figures from the upcoming Figure and Accessory Assortment, or the upcoming variant head Rebel Trooper Tantive IV Defender? I do know that in addition to Rebel Troopers from the Tantive IV ship, that Death Star Troopers, Imperial Officers and Hoth Rebel Soldiers also had this model of blaster in the various movies, so it wouldn't be movie inaccurate to release any of these figures with that model of blaster.

Thanks,

John
