Galactic Hunter: Hasbro has made it clear that the Holiday Special is mostly off-limits for figure consideration. I understand your reservations since it is painfully hard to watch. Since we did receive a Star Wars Holiday Special figure in the Power of the Jedi line is 2001 (Zutton - Snaggletooth) which NEVER appeared in A New Hope and we were just blessed with the Animated Debut: Boba Fett this year, could you please just check out the Star Wars Chronicles (big coffee table book) and just see some of the cool additional cantina aliens that could be created if you would just open your hearts? There are some amazing creatures (some even cooler than what made it to the movie cut) that were developed for this special including a white Djas Puhr among others that would be very welcomed additions to our cantina dioramas. (-From reader Paul Mancil)
[Adam's Note: Bea Arthur as Ackmena counts as an amazing creature! She's a former United States Marine and a Golden Girl! And Maude!]
HASBRO: For the most part any new aliens that require new tooling would be on-screen aliens from the six movies. If there are repaint opportunities, we could certainly check it out - this might make an intriguing multi-pack exclusive.
Galactic Hunter: You folks scared EVERYONE with all of the "No comment!" answers in the last round of Q&A. Seeing that those two Ultimate Battle Packs have been leaked with stickers indicating that they will be exclusive to one particular big-boxer, can you confirm or deny whether or not we'll see OTHER cool 3.75" exclusives that haven't been leaked (thus far) in time for the holdays? [A list of fall/holiday exclusives that
CAN be confirmed would be useful, but any guidance helping us with our budgeting would be helpful and appreciated!]
HASBRO: To help you with your budgeting Adam, we can confirm that there will be no specials and exclusives that you do not already know about.
Galactic Hunter: Many fans are enthralled by the 30th Anniversary Collection's cardback art. Would Hasbro ever consider posting some nice print-quality artwork on StarWars.Hasbro.com for collectors to
download? It's beautiful art, and it shouldn't be marred by sliced-off bubbles.
HASBRO: Thanks. That is a great suggestion and we will look into that possibility.
P.S. Again and again, thanks for all you Hunters are doing to keep us on Target. Things have been slow/complicated on the news-front lately, so we appreciate the Q&A sessions more and more.
