Hasbro Star Wars Q&A - Session 1

On September 12th, we sent our first batch of questions to Hasbro to join their Star Wars Question and Answer sessions. Today, we've got the answers to those three questions!

1. It seems like it’s been a while since someone bugged you about a possible Eopie re-release. Is the Eopie something that can get worked into a Battle Pack (say, with a sled, some junk parts, and a few Pod Racer pilots) or is it one of those “if it’s in the animation we’ll look at it” type of things?

** If you noticed the Eopie in the Clone Wars movie, you have sharp eyes. We have special plans for Eopie, but no details will be revealed right now. You'll have to stay tuned but we think fans will be very pleased.

2. Ten years ago (holy cow - 10 years!?!), you guys released a nifty 2-Pack of Coud City’s favorite humanoid-porcine beings - the Ugnaughts. We’re thinking it’s about time for an upgrade... any plans to get some new Ugnaughts out there in 2009?

** Yes, there will be a new Ugnaught in 2009 (we could not cost it out as 2-pack however).

3. First off, we’d like to pass on some kudos - every little kid I know (and most of the big ones too) LOVE their Galactic Heroes Rancor and Dewback. It is fantastic that you guys were finally able to do these iconic beasties in the line! With that said, are there any plans for more beasties to join the line? We’re loving the Skiff and Snowspeeder sets that were revealed, but we’re hoping you’ve still got a Bantha up your sleeve!

** The response has been great to the recent expansions in the Galactic Hero line, and we can confirm that we have some additional secrets in store for next year. We don't want to reveal any more specifics than that, so look for more news early next year sometime on what can be expected for 2009.
