This week's Q&A involves the Glamorous Ladies of Star Wars and more big vehicles. (No, not that one!)
Galactic Hunter: Any chance of seeing Mara Jade from the Comic 2-Pack re-released on a basic card some day with a repainted black bodysuit instead of the comic-based blue color scheme? She'd be a great candidate for a future re-deco wave, and well deserving of basic card status. (And... could you retool her head a bit? The Comic 2-Pack head's hair prevents too much articulation, and it can't even be pushed all the way down onto the peg.) -- From readers Shabby Blue and Commander 1138
HASBRO: We have not seen the last of Mara Jade in the figure lineup, we can promise you that, but where and when she will make another return had yet to be decided - either in a future comic pack, or as a basic carded figure with changes as you suggest. We are looking at different options, but in any case it will be a while yet before we have her slotted back in.
Galactic Hunter: Ackmena (as performed by Bea Arthur, legend, thespian, poet, American Treasure, and former U.S. Marine) does LFL own the rights to this character from the 1978 Star Wars: Holiday Special? (No, we're not asking you to make her, just asking if you have the right to do so in any event?) She was a U.S. Marine for Dorothy Zbornak's sake!
HASBRO: Since we haven't looked into producing her, we don't have a definitive answer for you but would assume that any characters from that special belong to Lucasfilm. That question would be better directed to StarWars.com.
Galactic Hunter: O.K. Let's imagine a glorious future. The Clone Wars is a massive hit (which is likely). How big would the Juggernaut/Rolling Slab/Turbo Tank vehicle be? Cost? What say you? --From Optimistic Reader Dr. Doug M.D.
HASBRO: It would be big - very big. We also have to wait and see if it actually shows up in the Clone Wars series. We know about the AT-TE, but beyond that we don't know what the future of the Juggernaut/Clone Turbo Tank looks like. That would be a very risky one to do just based on the scant on-screen appearance in Revenge of the Sith.
