After their presentation, Hasbro offered private interviews with the Star Wars line's creative team. Needless to say we wanted to use this time to play with their toys and Hasbro's Jeff Labovitz and Bill Rawley were more than happy to accommodate. In between 'pew pews' and other epic battle noises we found some time to take some more detailed images for you. Click the thumbnails above to see the full gallery and follow through for some additional information on the new figures.

Each year the whole Scummer team gets together to discuss which licensee we feel has contributed the most to the Star Wars collecting community over the past twelve months. While there are many wonderful licensees out there producing top quality Star Wars collectibles,we felt that Kotobukiya stood out this year. Their products are amazing, and their extremely positive attitude about collectors and Star Wars in general is beyond compare!
