During the POTJ line, you featured a Jedi Training Qui-Gon and Cold Weather Gear Kenobi. Is there any chance of revisting this concept, but with OT core characters?


Good question. With Episode III in the house and new sculpting and articulation approaches that can update figures we have done before, but in a more "definitive" way, we've felt that we will stick to entertainment (film, animation, or comic) reference before doing more of the "off-screen" variety. However, as we begin to "nail" more and more of those definitive versions, in time we will probably turn our attention to some ideas like this is order to provide new and unique takes on characters that will be satisfying to kids and collectors. That probably won't be for a while though...we've got a lot of great character takes from the entire Saga to go.



The weapons/accessories that come with the figures have numbers or letters imprinted on them. I believe these are the cavity numbers used when creating the mold. What is the purpose of this designation?


It is chiefly used for debugging purposes by our factories to keep production moving quickly and smoothly. For instance, if it is noticed that during production all of the guns from the "4" cavities are showing deformities (such as from something preventing full plastic injection, or details that have become obscured due to overuse), the tool can be quickly debugged and serviced and gotten back into production quickly, preventing costly downtime.
