The Hasbro Star Wars team has answered the latest round of Star Wars questions submitted by AFi readers. This is the first round of answers for 2010,and there’s plenty more to come. Check the end of this post for how you can submit a question for the next round.
Q1) You’ve given us lots and lots of awesome Cantina denizens. Keep ’em coming. I was wondering if you guys have ever discussed a figure of Chalmun, the Cantina’s Wookie Owner? I guess he’d be considered EU. If you ever do make a Chalmun, please make it a better sculpt than the Episode III Wookies!
A1) With as much as we enjoy the Cantina, Chalmun is one character that we haven’t really considered! Mostly because there is little coverage for him in the EU. Unless he becomes very promiment in some future story, it’s unlikely we’ll get to him.
Q2) Now that the NEW Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back Vintage collection will be available in AUGUST…. is there any chance Hasbro will make Collector’s Carrying Cases to store our Precious Figures into, like The Darth Vader & C-3PO CASES??? what about the OLD VINTAGE Vinyl Cases??? there were six back in the day…. why not do them again but with better material and snaps??? Isn’t it about time Hasbro start making cases to store your Figures???
A2) Storage cases are one thing we just have not figured out how to do cost effectively. They also tend to take up a lot of room on the planogram, and are somewhat slow sellers, so it’s unlikely we’ll be getting back into these any time soon.
If you have a question you would like the Hasbro Star Wars team to answer you can submit them in the ALL NEW FOR 2010 Hasbro SW Q&A thread! We have already submitted for the this round, but we are taking questions for the next batch. Hasbro has changed the submission rules for 2010 and they only allow two questions from each site, so get your questions in early!
Do you have any pre-Comic Con Questions? Just ask and we’ll pass them along!
Our thanks to the Hasbro SW team!
