  • Comments: While on a routine patrol, Han and Chewie investigate the source of a strange signal, and discover an Imperial probe droid, which immediately fires upon the pair. When Han returns fire, the droid self-destructs – but not before it tells the Empire where the Rebel's base is located. As the Alliance begins an immediate evacuation of Echo Base, R2-M5 helps coordinate plans and K-3PO provides tactical support to hold back the Imperial forces.


    Chewbacca: Chewie does his best to keep his friend Han out of trouble and uses his mechanical skills to repair the ever-malfunctioning Millennium Falcon.
  • Chewbacca is a repaint of the figure from 2006's VTSC Early Bird Kit.


    K-3PO: This protocol droid provides the Rebels with information on military tactics that he learned from his former owner Commander Narra.
  • K-3PO is a repaint of 2006's TSC C-3PO (with Ewok Throne).


    Han Solo: Han has stayed with the Rebels as long as he can, but can’t wait any longer to pay Jabba the Hutt the money he owes him – or he's a dead man.
  • Han Solo is a repaint of the figure from 2008's TLC Han Solo & R-3PO set.



    Imperial Probe Droid: Used for reconnaissance and deep space exploration, Imperial probe droids gather data and transmit it over long distances.
  • Imperial Probe Droid is a repaint of 1997's POTF2 Probe Droid.



    R5-M2: This astromech droid provides tactical support to Rebel Alliance officer Shawn Valdez and plots escape routes during the evacuation.
  • R5-M2 is a repaint of 2006's TSC R5-D4

    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.
