Q1: Images have shown up online giving us a glimpse at the new Slave Leia and her interchangeable leg accessory allowing her to sit by Jabba's side. The execution looks great and I think this is an excellent way to create a scene specific figure and it also give collectors more options on how we display our figures. Are there any other plans for an accessory of this type (legs or arms) to be used with other figures? The first one that comes to mind is the possibility of creating a true "Kneeling Darth Vader" as seen in The Empire Strike Back during his communications with the Emperor. It would give us (collectors) a new take on the Dark Lord while keeping a top tier character like Vader available to kids.
A1) The reaction does seem to be extremely positive to the new version of Slave Leia and was pretty much the main reason for wanting to do a new, "ultimate" version of her. Â While we don't have any additional figures planned with swappable torsos, it does give us encouragement that such features would be welcome for the right character. Â Your suggestion about Vader is interesting, although we think that the super-articulated Vader (also included in the Disturbance in the Force set last year) can already achieve this pose, albeit with a turned boot versus a toe to the ground.
Q2: Hey Hasbro, any chance of seeing a Blurrg in the deluxe or battlepack line from the Clone Wars 3-part storyline that takes place on Ryloth? Blurrgs have been seen in the Clone Wars cartoon, video games, and even the made-for-tv Ewok movie! See image attached...
A2) It's unlikely we'll do one, unless they show up again in future episodes of Clone Wars.
Q3: Dear Hasbro, there has been some confusion in regards to the second version of the Ugnaught to be released later this year. Will he include the same accessories as the first run Ugnaught or might he have a different pack-in? How about a repainted version of the Han in Carbonite block without the thawing effect? I think the inclusion of this accessory would be advantageous from a cost standpoint as there is no new tooling, it gives a "new" version of an existing "core" character and it's slim enough to fit in the new form factor packaging. What say you?
A3) The second version of the Ugnaught will include the exact same accessory as the first one. Â The carbonite Han is a very interesting suggestion, but is too late to actually impact the production at this point.
