On June 4th, we sent our twenty-eighth batch of questions to Hasbro to once again take part in their Star Wars Question and Answer sessions. Today, we've got the answers to our two questions!
1) In previous Q&As, you've hinted that in addition to the Vintage Fett offer there may be another mail-away promo later this year, one focused on The Clone Wars. Will this be a regular figure offer (like Fett or Nahdar) or something a little fancier (like the Eopie or perhaps something to tie in with the new Galactic Card Game)?
** You are getting very close with the Galactic Battle Card game tie-in, Jeff…nicely done. The set will include a battle play mat/soft vinyl storage carry-all along with a new Clone Trooper. Details on the promotion will be made available at Comic Con.
2) A couple questions about the exclusive Visionaries Comic Pack - is the Uncle Owen figure all new or a kitbash? And is there any chance we can get a better look at him (and/or Maul too)?
** Uncle Owen is 100% new and not a kitbash. See attached for the image of the two.
