SDCC News from the Floor: Hasbro

We’re just got off of a short QnA with the fine folks at Hasbro in order to clear up a few inquiries we’ve had regarding all the news from SDCC.

UGH Vintage Collection Variants:
There has been rumblings that there are UGH specific paint variants for the some of the foil card back “chase” figures this year. Some were wondering about Anakin Skywalker specifically as the face/head sculpt seems quite different in terms of paint and expression.

Answer: Hasbro has clarified this and there will be NO paint variants. Anakin on both the standard and UGH will both feature the same sculpt/deco both with the “Sith eyes” treatment.

Luke Skywalker – Jedi Knight Card Back Portrait
People have questioned exactly which cardback portrait will be used for the new Jedi Luke.

Answer: Hasbro has confirmed that they made a huge error in this regard as this figure is intended to represent the “Endor Surrender” scene in Return of the Jedi, but the design used the wrong art when designing the card and it will depict his appearance from Jabba’s Palace – just like the 1983 Kenner version.

Senate Commandos Removable Helmets?
Some have wondered if the helmets on the new Senate Commando/Captain Jayfon are removeable.

Answer: No they are not.

Wicket and the Interchangeable Hood
Some folks wonder what the new Wicket looks like with the alternate hood.

Answer: For the answer, head to Facebook.
