The Toyark has just received our answers for the 2010 Round 5 Star Wars Q&A sessions by Hasbro:
1) Why have Battle Packs never been packed with DVD’s?
A)Our DVD program has been focused on pack-ins for role play, such as “greatest lightsaber battles” since this can often be an extra plus up for consumers who haven’t yet gotten a lightsaber and help expand our promotional window. The intention of Battle Packs is to showcase figure value, and DVDs would add cost that would cause us problems with this model. There are some things brewing though where we will use DVDs in conjuction with figures, but those details are under wraps.
2) Are vehicles from games such as “Shadows of the Empire” such as Dash Rendar’s Outrider off limits for the Star Wars Transformers Crossovers line?
A) Yes, since our research shows that the Transformers Crossovers line is almost universally bought by kids. Vehicles like the Outrides, as cool as they are, have no relevancy to kids who base their selection on familiarity with the characters and vehicles from the movies or Clone Wars.
