A1: This change was based on a request from Lucasfilm. Ã‚Â We were able to catch the request partway through the run, and the color moved from the silver version to the slightly more yellow "champagne" version. Ã‚Â The color difference is *very* subtle.
Q2: The new Magnaguard fighter is starting to hit shelves around the country and I was lucky enough to pick one up the other day and it is one awesome vehicle. High praise to the designer(s) that had the foresight to incorporate the storage hatches for the Magnaguard's electrostaff in each wing. I did notice something quite curious about the fighter though. What is the intended purpose of the hexgonal hole on the top of aft section of the fuselage? The only use I can see for it is to stow the CW Magnaguard figure's rocket launcher. Am I close in guessing what this is for or is there some other function for it that I'm not seeing?
A2: Yes indeed, it is designed to be compatible with the Magnaguard's launcher. Ã‚Â You know, this vehicle is a pretty cool one when you think about it. Ã‚Â Who knew, when we first saw Episode III unfold on screen, that we'd see these cool guys get their own ship (much less multiple different versions of this single type of droid). Ã‚Â This is why we love Star Wars!

Q3*: Dear Hasbro, it's been a while since we've heard anything about the progress of Willrow Hood, can we expect to see a finished version of him on display at SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con)? If not*, would it be possible for you to share a teaser photo with us of the prototype (or final figure) to see how this fan fav's sculpt is coming along?
A3: Yes, you will see Willrow in all his fan-requested glory, with signature accessory, at Comic Con
*My poorly worded question might have caused us not to get a teaser shot of this figure this round - sorry : (
