Comments: During an illegal occupation of Naboo by the Trade Federation, Queen Amidala and her Jedi protectors, Master Qui-Gon Jiin and his Padawan apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi, lead a strike team on a daring raid of the Royal Palace to capture Viceroy Nute Gunray and end the occupation. But once they enter the palace hanger, they encounter Darth Maul. Qui-Gon steps forward with Obi-Wan to calmly defend the young Queen, assuring her that they will defeat the dark intruder.

Trained in secret as a merciless killing machine by the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, Maul is a vivid manifestation of dark side rage wielding a doubled bladed lightsaber with inhuman dexterity and grace, his red tattooed visage dotted with sharp horns. Maul is determined to exact Sith power on the unsuspecting Jedi as his attempt to force Amidala's submission to the Federation's demands are intercepted.

Leading them out of the hanger and into the palace reactor room, Darth Maul engages them on the high catwalks, beginning one of histories greatest lightsaber battles.

Navigating the perilous footing and laser fields of the reactor room, the Jedi struggle to overcome Darth Maul, but the Sith eventually manages to gain the offensive. Qui-Gon is unable to adequately counter-attack, and Darth Maul plunges his lightsaber through the stunned Jedi. When the laser field between them drops, Obi-Wan attacks using all his Jedi skills to defeat the monstrous Sith Lord. After a valiant struggle, Obi-Wan flips over his opponent and delivers a lightning fast strike that cuts Darth Maul in half. Obi-Wan Kenobi runs to his dying master who makes Obi-Wan promise to train young Anakin Skywalker in the ways of the force...a promise that will forever change the destiny of the Universe.

    Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
