    Comments: Phenomenally fast and maneuverable, the TIE defender rivals even the legendary A-wing starfighter in its capacity for seemingly impossible twists and dives. Designed in response to the successes of the Rebellionís fighter forces, it is a substantial departure from previous generations of TIE starfighters, incorporating heavier armor, deflector shields, a hyperdrive and far more powerful weapons systems. Unfortunately, it is also prohibitively expensive to manufacture, ensuring that it will never be produced in the same vast numbers as other Imperial fighter craft.

    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.
