A week late and a question short
Posted by: Bill Cable
I got these answers on
4-13, but completely forgot to post them last week. I guess it
was that whole "so sick I couldn't get out of bed"
thing... made me lose my focus. But better late than never!
I knew if we tried hard enough
we'd put together a question that Hasbro would refuse to answer.
It only took three sessions. I'm going to include the question
despite the fact that they ignored it because the question is
just THAT DAMNED FUNNY...
Now for the questions...
CreatureCantina.com: Since I have spent
something like two hours boiling, straightening, and resolidifying
several squads' worth of warped Clone Trooper legs to get them
to stand properly, could you please look into packaging further
Clone and Stormtrooper figures in a more static pose to prevent
leg-warping? It would be greatly appreciated!
Hasbro: Which packs specifically were at issue? We strive
to make sure we deliver a product that can perform (stand) as
expected - let us know and we will look into it for future releases.
CC: When is Hasbro going
to release a Sarlacc playset, a space slug, or a Dejarik table?
I get so tired of always simulating the Death Star explosion
by having to tape M-80's to all my Imperial figures. I think
it would be much more entertaining to throw them into the Sarlacc
and have them slowly be digested for the rest of my life, or
watch them be bitten in half by the space slug, or even better,
use them as pawns in a Dijarik game and the Mantellian Savrip
can twist them into a pretzel.
H: Ah but there's the rub - we could not officially
promote the throwing of plastic action figures into a live Sarlacc
because it would cause digestive problems and the Society Protecting
Organic & Otherworldly lifeForms (SPOOF) would be all over
our case. Same with the torture caused to creatures by endless
matches of Dejarik! So we decided that officially, we are not
going to be pursuing any ideas involving live versions of any
Star Wars creatures. Except Hoobjibs. We keep those around to
drain power from the Marvel team's computers, which is actually
pretty ironic if you think about it.
CC: How would you rate the
feasibility/marketability of the custom accessory depicted in
the following eBay auction:
items were created by CreatureCantina.com webmaster Bill Cable
as a byproduct of a more elaborate custom, but they themselves
stand up as a pretty nice pack-in. In my opinion, no droid and
no female action figure is complete without one! What do you
