From the 3A board, a member reportedly talked to Ashley Wood about the Star Wars figures:
The coolest thing though is Ash's utter confidence that these WILL get made. ThreeA isn't actually pursuing the license from what I could tell. They're trying to work with Takara who has a Star Wars license for Asia. He said they've spent $30k on prototypes, and with that kind of money invested they are of course determined to get these made. And then he further reassured me that he knows all kinds of people and hasn't burnt any bridges so once again, these WILL get made. His words not mine.
