1) We see the Battle Packs are being reduced to 3 figures, but what seems up in the air is if there is a price reduction to the packs to accompany this change. Can you tell us your MSRP for the new battle packs and if that's lower than the 4-figure packs to which we have become accustomed?
2) As a Snooty fan from way back, I was sad to read your answer to a question about the character’s plastic prospects from Action Figs: “We just don't feel that Sy Snootles is a compelling enough character to slot into lineup right now.” While your reasoning is certainly understandable, after her recent star turn in the Clone Wars episode Hunt for Ziro I hope you'd agree that Snooty’s stocks just rose. On a similar note, Ziro’s continual bumping in search of an appropriate release opportunity is disappointing for fans of the galaxy’s most flamboyant Hutt, though we appreciate you continuing to try to find a way to get him out. Is there any hope on the horizon for either character in light of the latest appearance together? Might these two be united in plastic immortality some day? A love that strong can’t be held back and I just know Hasbro wouldn’t want to be party to disappointing Snooty. That girl doesn’t handle rejection too well.
