Always in motion, the future is. While 2005 was a "movie-year" and had a lot of toys geared towards younger fans and collectors alike, things will be changing in 2006. This will be a year for the collector.

Clone Troopers
We've already heard early details about a variety of Clone Trooper 3-figure multipacks planned for Toys "R" Us this fall, as well as a new 5-figure Battlepack featuring Clone Troopers, but there's more to come.

Unleashed
The three Unleased figures that debuted yesterday will be the final three figures in the line as we know it. The 7" scale will be phased out after 4 successful years. However, the line WILL continue in a different format. Plans call for a new line of 2" figures sold together in a 4-pack set. No word yet on which characters will be included, but it sounds like there will be room for many more characters to get unleashed in this format.

Die-Cast Action Figures
At Celebration III, Hasbro held a discussion group with fans of the Titanium Series line, at which participants were shown some ideas for upcoming toys and were able to voice their opinions on them. One of these potential new lines was a line of Die Cast 3" action figures. This line will be made in 2006, although it is not yet known which characters will be offered.

Return of the OTC
The Original Trilogy Collection was a major success for Hasbro in 2004. Sharp-eyed fans may have noticed that some 2005 toys (Clone Troopers Troop Builder sets, Comic-Con exclusive Holographic Princess Leia) have continued the look long after the line officially came to an end.

After Revenge of the Sith concludes, look for the return of the OTC packaging design (minus the OTC logo) with a combination of Classic Trilogy and Prequel Trilogy offerings. Popular action figures and vehicles from all 6 movies will be repackaged alongside new sculpts and new paint applications. No word yet on exactly which characters or ships will be included in this line.

Look for more details to be officially revealed later this month at Comic Con.
