During last week's Hasbro presentation at Celebration IV, Hasbro not only offered a look at the new toys in their lineup, but they also had a few special announcements.

The first is the winner of the "Show us your lightsaber" contest, Lee Vehe, was given a special vac-metallized version of the Force-Action lightsaber. Lee also has created an "Eyes of Darth Tater" film you can see now on Atom Films.

Then, Hasbro made an announcement of a collaboration with Lucafilm, and debuted the upcoming R2-KT figure, which was created in honor of Katie Johnson. This figure will be available at Comic-Con, through HasbroToyShop.com, and StarWarsShop.com. Hasbro and Lucasfilm are supporting Make-a Wish of San Diego with a $100,000 donation in Katie Johnson's memory to the Make-a-Wish foundations of San Diego and South Carolina.

Watch the video of the special announcements:
