Comments: After being captured by the Geonosians and convicted of espionage, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Padmé Amidala are sentenced to execution in the arena. Each of the captives is chained to a stone pillar, intended to die by tooth or claw as a trio of deadly predators are released, prodded to attack by Geonosian handlers. Thousands upon thousands of Geonosian onlookers cheer in anticipation of the blood sport, waiting for Poggle the Lesser and Count Dooku, the Sith Lord, to give the command to kill their prisoners.

As the gates are raised and the creatures are unleashed into the arena, the witting captives are able to free themselves from their bonds enough to defend against the ferocious beasts. Padmé climbs atop her pillar to escape the reach of the vicious nexu. The agile beast is able to climb the bare rock pillar with its deadly claws, and once within reach, it begins snapping at her with its razor-toothed maw. Using her chains and shackles to stun the nexu, her agility and quick thinking save her from what would have otherwise been a deadly attack. The nexu's claws rake Padmé's back as the beast falls away, but Padmé is temporarily safe and takes the moment to study the arena, which has quickly become a battlefield.

    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.
