We here at Galactic Hunter look forward to Fridays for the weekly Hasbro Q&A as much as you do. Today we get the answers to a few burning questions. Is that Galactic Marine's helmet removable? What's the deal with the flames on the new Super Battle Droid? And what are 2007's Collector Coins made out of?
Galactic Hunter: Will there be any difference between the upcoming Celebration 4 exclusive figure(s) and Celebration Europe's, be it a packaging difference or a difference in the figure itself?
HASBRO: It's too early to talk about Celebration 4 just yet… ask us in about a month.
Galactic Hunter: Is the upcoming Galactic Marine's helmet removable? Are the flames on the 2007 Super Battle Droid removable, and are his hips ball-joints?
HASBRO: The Galactic Marine's helmet is in fact removable. The flames on the Super Battle Droid are removable, as they are snap-on parts. The Super Battle Droid is new and super-articulated with a ball joint head and waist, insert molded shoulders, elbows, and knees…but the hips are not ball joint.
Galactic Hunter: What type of material are the 2007 Collector Coins made from? (Metal or plastic?) Will the Collector Coin Album be available at big box stores?
HASBRO: They are aluminum - the exact same material the previous coins were made from. We wanted to stay true to the roots of the coin program and make them from the same material and to be the same size. There are some new details for the 30th Anniversary, though — some coin details that are pretty cool and unique. The figure/album will be available everywhere from 1/1 to approximately 3/24.
Editor's Note: Hasbro will be closed on Monday, 9 October, and the next Q&A session will take place on 20 October 2006.
