SANDTROOPER Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Harking back to the original Vintage line, with a design that was once considered by Kenner as an alternative to the classic black-and-silver look, the "Lost Line" was first revealed to fans at New York Toy Fair in February 2012 and debuted in the San Diego exclusive Carbonite Freezing Chamber the same year. The first six figures that came in the set, one from each episode of the complete Star Wars saga, were Jar Jar Binks, Clone Trooper Lieutenant, Shock Trooper, Sandtrooper, Princess Leia and Darth Vader.

Poll
Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
