    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.
