    I was reading a Hasbro Q&A concerning the possibility of getting action figures of Jacen and Jaina Solo and below...



    SSG: You said in a recent answer that the Solo twins, while difficult to do because of limited visual references, were high on your wish list. Hypothetically speaking, if you were to make these long-request characters, which versions would you do? Young Jedi Knights (there's a good picture of them in the recent Jedi vs. Sith guide), NJO-era Jedi Knights (probably the most requested versions, and based on Japanese cover art which is probably the largest body of visual reference for these characters and was even used by the Official Site as its EU menu before the redesign) or Legacy of the Force-era (with the added advantage that an alternate head and lightsaber and removable cape would allow you to do Jacen and Caedus as one figure)?


    Hasbro: If we did them, hypothetically speaking, it would be the New Jedi Order-era, based on the Japanese cover art. This would be the most solid selection for the exact reasons you have pointed out - prevalence and familiarity with the character images. If we ever did Caedus, it would have to be new sculpt since the NJO-version would not work for a retrofit.

    So what Japanese cover art is Hasbro referring to?

    Tee Eff En has a comprehensive collection including high-res versions.

    These are the images that made Americans even MORE pissed off about the cluster**** that was the NJO.

    The US covers sucked compared to those. I have been thinking about spending the green to get the Jap versions.

    What will you do, rip off the covers and re-glue them onto your english books so you can READ them? :p

    Here is a new Q&A question, which characters did these artists do and which ones would make a good figure?

    Q. We were somewhat surprised to hear that there are more concept art figures on the way in the 2009 Legacy Collection. The answers from the Q&A sessions seem to indicate that there won't be any McQuarrie designs in the lot. That seems to almost completely rule out much of the OT with the exception of artist Joe Johnston, who ironically is represented with the new Space Trooper. But what about the PT concept artists? Which artist's designs can we expect to see? Can we expect to see some of the more iconic designs like the Sith Witch that was designed for EPISODE I?

    A. We actually have to ask for clemency on our previous answer for the concept figures, as there was a change....there will indeed be one McQuarrie figure after all. In addition, there is one Johnston figure, one Jun, and one Thompson.
