AFN: The Expanded Universe figure of Sigel Dare has a different style of paint than the previous Imperial Knights figures. Her armor is glossier and even a lighter shade than Antares and Ganner's suits.
Was a decision made to change the look of the armor or did this just happen by accident?
Hasbro: Originally, it was out intent to have all Imperial Knights have that more metallic paint scheme from day one. However, the factory did not get it right on the first batch and we had to go without it. We faced a choice with the Sigel Dare pack, of matching the previous deco, for consistency, or pursuing the metallic deco when it was available because it looked really good and was a better match to the source material.
AFN: I watch The Clone Wars in Canada on Teletoon virtually every week (sometimes multiple times per week as they are rerunning Season 1 on a daily basis).
I don't recall ever seeing a commercial for Star Wars toys during these episodes. While it's possible that I simply missed them, does Hasbro buy advertising space from networks like Teletoon to advertise the toy lines during the program?
Hasbro: In Canada, there are strict child advertising guidelines and toy companies are precluded from advertising on shows for the products from the toy line of that show. The same rules exist in the U.S. and many other countries as well.
