The Galactic Heroes received some nice attention during this session’s Hasbro Q&A. Check out the following site’s questions and Hasbro’s responses.
One of the best pieces of news is that although the Cinema Scenes subline is going on hiatus, they still plan on producing more vehicles!
Thanks to ARBCOToys for the handy summary at TheRumorBuster.
1. We’re sorry to see the Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes go. What does this mean for Galactic Heroes in terms of future vehicles and additional figures – will we continue to see vehicles or will the 2 packs be the only outlet for Galactic Heroes moving forward (and will we see all four Republic Commandos as Galactic Heroes) and finally, are we likely to see a return to the Cinema Scenes sometime in the future?
Something had to give way to make room for the Galactic Heroes AT-AT, so it was decided to put the Cinema Scenes on hiatus as a mainline offering. There still may be exclusive Cinema Scenes here and there to take advantage of the cool vehicle library we have built up. As for the other Commandos, we hope that they will find their way into the lineup at some point, but it won’t be for a while if so.
From Raving Toy Maniac:
Does the Galactic Heroes AT-AT’s head open to allow access to figures? If so, how many figures?
Answer: Yes, the head will open to fit one figure.
YN: With the Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes being put “on hold” will we still see the Purchase of the Droids and Kamino set?
Hasbro: Yes, they got pushed out due to Toys ‘R Us asking for a re-release of some of their previous Cinema Scenes. We are back on track, and these will be coming later this Spring to Toys ‘R Us.
