In case you didn't get enough from all the photos from our two galleries, here's a rundown of what was on display at Hasbro's booth during Preview Night.


Basic Figures
The entire basic figure line for The Saga Collection was on display during preview night, all the way up to the "final wave" featuring characters from the Battle of Naboo (#s 47-52.)

The Saga Collection continues...just a LITTLE longer
Much like the "Mystery 12" from the Revenge of the Sith line, reports word came out earlier this week of over a dozen MORE figures for The Saga Collection due this fall/winter. Also similar to last year, these are expected to be made up of repacks and repaints. The first three of these were on display. Repacks of Darth Maul (Sith Training) (#53), Chewbacca (Cloud City Capture) (#54), and Kit Fisto (Clone Wars) (#55).

Mace Windu's Attack Battalion
"Ohh, I love purple." -- Vicki Vale, BATMAN
The BMF Jedi Master gets his own group of Clone Troopers to order around, all decked out in a purple color scheme. The best part of this set is the commander, which is of the airborner variety...which suggests an Utapau-color scheme version might not be far behind.

30th Anniversary Collector Tins
To be clear...2007 is not just the 30th Anniversary of A New Hope, but ALL of Star Wars. So the new Star Wars Commemorative Tin Collection celebrates the entire saga in 6 different multipacks (one from each film).

The Episode I set includes repacks of Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi (both with soft goods cloaks), Darth Maul (Evolutions), and a repainted R2-R9.

The Episode II set includes repacks of Count Dooku, Jango Fett (looks to be partially new), Anakin Skywalker (Evolutions), and a repainted Clone Trooper Lieutenant.

The Episode III set includes Anakin Skywalker (Evolutions), Mace Windu, Yoda (with new cloak), and a repainted AT-RT Driver.

Vehicles
Several new vehcles were on display, including repaints of the AAT, Hailfire Droid, Mace Windu's Jedi Starfighter, Kit Fisto's Jedi Starfighter, Darth Vader's TIE Fighter, and for the first time, Darth Vader's Sith Starfighter.

Exclusive vehicles include new versions of the AT-AT and Luke Skywalker's X-Wing Fighter coming to Toys "R" Us, and also Rogue Two Snowspeeder with Zev Senesca coming to Target.

Unleashed Battle Packs
The small 2" line continues with 4 sets based on Order 66. Look for the follwing:
Jedi Masters with Mace Windu, Kit Fisto, and Saesee Tiin going up against a Royal Guard (where's Agen Kolar?)
A New Empire with The Emperor, Darth Vader, and 2 Royal Guards
Shock Trooper Battalion with 4 Shock Troopers
Vader's 501st LEgion with 4 501st Troopers

If 4 figures per pack is just not enough, then you'll enjoy the new Unleashed Ultimate Battles which features 10 figures per pack! Looks like the first few assortments are back again, with new color schemes.

Galactic Heroes
The next wave of Galactic Heroes focuses on The Empire Strikes Back with new sets of Darth Vader & Leia (Bespin Gown), Hoth Rebel Trooper & Snowtrooper, and Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) & Lando Calrissian and a repack of Chewbacca & C-3PO

Once again, if you can't get enough out of the 2-packs, then you'll want need the Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes with 10 figures per pack! Made up of repacks and repaints, these are great for new collectors to get caught up. For those who've been collecting all along...not so much.

Death Star Escape includes Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Ben Kenobi, C-3PO, R2-D2, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, and R2-Q5

Geonosis Arena includes Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Padmé, C-3PO, Jango Fett, Super Battle Droid, Battle Droid, Geonosian Warrior, Clone Trooper Captain, and Clone Trooper Lieutenant

Bounty Hunters includes Darth vader, Boba Fett, Bossk, IG-88, Dengar, 4-LOM, Zuckuss, 2 Stormtroopers, and a Blackhole Stormtrooper

Sith Vs. Jedi includes Mace Windu, Kit Fisto, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Dark Side Anakin, Emperor Palpatine, General Grievous, Count Dooku, Shock Trooper, and a Purple Clone Trooper

Titanium Series 3" Vehicles
So many new 3" vehciels were shown, from all across the movies and the Expanded Universe!
Naboo Fighter (blue), Anakin's Jedi Starfighter (from Clone Wars), Trade Federation Cruiser, Speeder Bike with Paploo, Y-Wing Fighter (new colors), Darth Maul's Sith Speeder, Sandtrooper on a Dewback, Jedi Starfighter with Hypersace Ring, Endor AT-AT, AT-TE, General Grievous' Starfighter, Endor AT-ST, Naboo Star Skiff, Tantive IV, Star Destroyer, a Clone Wars-inspired ARC-170 Starfighter, Vader's Sith Starfighter, Swamp Speeder, 2 X-Wing Fighters, Snowspeeder, Droid Tri-Fighter, Republic Gunship, TIE Fighter, and Vader's TIE Fighter.

Titanium Series Figures
With all-new packaging, this line continues with Luke Skywalker (in Snowspeeder Pilot gear), Jango Fett, C-3PO, R2-D2 (in mid-flight), Clone Trooper Captain (from AOTC), General Grievous, and Darth Maul. Plus, the Target-exclusive Darth Vader in Mustafar colors (think "lava reflection").

Other Stuff
If all of that weren't enough for you, there were also plenty of role-play weapons shown, including the "Force-Action" lightsabers, Darth Maul's Lightsaber, the return of the 7" Unleashed figures, Artoo-Potatoo, and the Interactive R2-D2.

Sneak Peek
Curiously, there were a number of items covered up with black sheets in the display cases. Expect these items to be uncovered over the course of the weekend (most likely on Friday), but our boys were able to get a peek under the sheets!

It appears that the retailer list posted over at Galactic Hunter earlier this week will be unveiled later at Comic-Con. We've already seen the repacks of Maul, Chewie, and Kit, but there's plenty more where that came from.

Glimpses of the following can be seen:
Holographic Commander Cody
Swamp Trooper
(the green Clone from the ROTS Deluxe set)
R5-A1 (a repaint of R5-D4)
the blue-striped Clone Trooper from the deluxe set
Clone Trooper Sergeant
Super Battle Droid with camoflague colors
Battle Droid 2-pack with camoflague colors

For the record, additional figures from the list include: Holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi, Commander Appo (hopefully the figure shown at SDCC last year), Elite Corps Clone Trooper, R5-K5 (Vader's new Astromech Droid), Padmé Amidala, Cobat Engineer (CoMbat?), and Yarael Poof. But there's been no sign of those figures....at least not yet!

Other toys glimpsed include an Imperial Officers set, a Collector's Tin of Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes, Saesee Tiin's Jedi Starfighter (orange, to complete the rainbow), and much, much more.

Be sure to come back throughout the weekend as more will be revealed...

Poll
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.
