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) Will we ever see a re-issue of the Clone Wars Threepio and Artoo figures – either on card or in a set?
A1) The Clone Wars R2-D2 is still in rotation, so it will be back out again. There are no plans to re-release C-3PO at this time.
Q2) If, according to (Lucas/fandom and the Kenner figure) Blue Snaggletooth is Zutton, the "twin" of Teekel (the red Snaggletooth in the "Cantina Denizens" cinemapack), then why was the Blue Snaggletooth in the K-mart exclusive made from a Geezum (Hasbro red Snaggletooth) figure? That said, will we ever get a "proper" Blue garbed metal booted Zutton Snaggletooth?
A2) The red snaggletooth was used because the tooling was the best route to getting a blue snaggletooth. We do think that sometime in the next few years an updated blue one will make it into the line, but it would still be several years away if we decided to slot it in.
If you have a question you would like the Hasbro Star Wars team to answer you can submit them in the 2010 Hasbro SW Q&A thread! Hasbro has changed the submission rules for 2010 and they only allow two questions from each site, so get your questions in early! Just ask and we’ll pass them along!
Our thanks to the Hasbro SW team!
