If you were at the Waterfront Bar on Saturday night for the big party you will have been witness to one of the most amazing occasions of the whole Celebration. While Dan, Mary F and myself were having a chat we heard someone calling "All lighstabers to the bridge. Could all lightsabres go to the bridge please?" and we knew something was in the offing.

The three of us stood back and watched as the lift on one side of the Royal Victoria Dock bridge, which bears an uncanny resemblence to the minig facility on Mustafar, ascended and descended.

After a few minutes of listening to the sound of clattering footsteps a secret signal was given and scores of lightsabers ignited - Sith red nearest to us and the blues and greens of the Jedi at the furthest end of the bridge - followed by an almighty roar. You'll have to watch this YouTube video to see what happened next.



The final outcome of the Battle Of Royal Victoria Bridge is unknown - perhaps there will be a rematch at the Brandenburg Gate or the Eiffel Tower.

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.
