Here are the details on the Death Star Briefing scene pack which features characters from A New Hope. This internet exclusive is now arriving in many collectors mailboxes this week.

Death Star Briefing
Coments: Though not yet fully operational, the Death Star was already an imposing presence, dwarfing its Star Destroyer escort as it cruised through deep space during its final pre-operations check. Even as the final systems check progressed flawlessly, the Imperial officers in command of the battle station met in their first strategy session to plot the total destruction of the Rebel Alliance, and the continued domination of the Emperor.












Darth Vader
Bio: Though he is not an official commander aboard the Death Star, Vader's commands as the personal envoy of the Emperor carry great weight, especially when he backs them up with the power of the dark side.
Point of Interest:
  • Darth vader is a repack of the figure from 2000's POTJ Masters of the Dark Side multipack.



    Grand Moff Tarkin
    Bio: Ambitious, brilliant and dedicated to the Emperor's New Order, tarkin intends to crush without mercy all resistance to the Emperor's rule.
    Point of Interest:
  • Grand Moff Tarkin is a repaint of 2005's ROTS Tarkin (Governor) III-45.



    Admiral Motti
    Bio: Second of the triumvirate in command of the Death Star, Motti believes the power of the Death Star dwarfs all others in the universe. He learns the fallacy of this belief at the hand of Darth Vader, to his regret.
    Point of Interest:
  • Admiral Motti is a repaint of 2000's POTF2 Admiral Motti.



    General Tagge

    Chief Bast
    Bio: Personal assistant to Grand Moff Tarkin aboard the Death Star, Bast shares tagge's opinion that the Rebellion is more powerful than many Imperials believe. He is one of very few Imperial officers to successfully evacuate from the Death Star before its destruction.

    Officer Cass
    Bio: As a high-level communications officer, Cass is entrusted with the most sensitive information and communications between the Death Star and Imperial command.

    Colonel Wulf Yularen

    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.
