    Comments: Though this unique pod racer is a marvel of engineering, the true marvel is its pilot and builder, the young human Anakin Skywalker. Displaying a phenomenal understanding of engineering, the young prodigy not only salvaged a pair of junked racing engines, but developed an enteirely new fuel distribution system. The young genius' innovations kept the weight of the racer down,a nd boosted its speed on a straightaway to more than three-quarters the speed of sound. The light racer suffered a serious disadvantage against its heavier competitors in the brutal fender to fender racing of the canyon section of the Boonta Eve Classic, but dominated utterly in the open steppes.

    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.
