Hey everybody, I found this Q&A session over at sirstevesguide.com and thought that some may find it interesting.

It discusses the miniature anakin starfighter breifly saying that it will be available in and out of brickmasters but only as a promotion and not at retail.

Here is a link:

Enjoy!

Q: Will we see any more minifig-only sets? If "no", why not?
A: Probably not and it is purely based on the contract as another Lucasfilm partner owns the rights to figures and we own the rights to building sets.


Ahhh, interesting... So the "no minifig packs because they're 'action figured'" argument is actually true.

Crapola!

I believe the license ends in 2007.

Yeah, so they have 2006 left to do. Not a whole lot of time, IMO. Unless they do have a limited one-year release of sets for 2007.

Q: Some collectors wait to buy larger sets until they go on clearance, does this present a problem for the line or the company?
A: No.


That wasn't a thought out question. The stores that you buy the clearanced sets are the ones losing the movie. Not LEGO, the stores buy the stock from LEGO so they get the full price of a certain amount of sets, and then it's the stores job to sell them.

This is from the less than average Joe consumer ::D:

From the sounds of the interview, he knows more then he is letting on to!

Maybe they have a contract extention? I have would think that if the Star Wars lisence is making them alot of money, that they would be everything in their power to keep it.

It may end at the end of next year, but, I have to think that it will go on till Star Wars loses it's popularity like in the mid 80's.

That's the feeling I got too, either that or the guy's just being really optimistic about how much time they have left.

...or maybe they've been building up a secret stash of model designs this whole time. They'll then release forty-seven new sets in December 2006. Very Happy

Does the license end Dec 31, 2006? I thought it ended sometime in 2007. Can anyone clarify?

Hmm... Well FBTB's own FAQ says:

Quote:
How long does LEGO have the Star Wars license?
LEGO has the Star Wars license through 2007.


...which to me sounds like it includes 2007.

I wonder if maybe this is a sign that the UK Magazine and Comic will get the MINI Starfighter like they did with the MINI TIE.
