Hasbro and Hunter PR joined forces to let us ask questions. Here are two of them.
Aside from the Toys "R" Us Battle of Endor Pilot/Droid/More Pilot sets, are there any exclusive Star Wars items slated to hit retail stores between the end of 2010 and Toy Fair 2011 that may not have been announced yet? (Or can you give us a list of what has been announced for the post-holiday, pre-Toy Fair timeframe?)
There are not any more surprise exclusives planned for this time frame. Next up, in March, will be three exclusives delivered to each of the big three retailers in the U.S. The first is the set of two Vehicle Figure packs for Toys 'R Us (Yavin Hangar vehicle and the non-Zombie Geonisian Warrior with speeder), followed by a set of DVD + figure 2-packs for Wal-Mart. The Target exclusive will be an assortment of Vintage 3-packs, continuing the theme teed up by the upcoming 9-pack. We, and Target, are so excited by the special 9-pack that we have decided to make this an ongoing assortment with at least two more assortments of 3-packs lined up for '11. All of them are modern recreations of the legendary Kenner 3-packs, so the 9-pack is a must-have start to this exciting new ongoing collection. Don't miss it!
We've had it for over 8 years and we still don't know how to do it. Is there any way to possibly fit Zam Wesell into the 2002 Hasbro Zam Wesell speeder vehicle? If not, can we ask what hurdles prevented the ship from being designed to be compatible with the very figures it was sold with during Attack of the Clones?
The EpII figures were designed at a time when we were going for different aesthetics in figures. That was a time when we were going for dynamic posing over playability. Plus, the Zam figure was designed early as a Sneak preview figure, before the vehicle, so it was probably too late to change once the team decided to produce her speeder. Hindsight is everything, and we're glad we can correct the compatiability issue nearly 10 years later!
Editorial note: no 3 3/4-inch action figures can be posed to pilot this vehicle, including Joes, it doesn't appear to be designed for any scaled-down interpretation of the human form. There was also a nearly super-poseable Zam sold in Summer 2002 which did not fit.
