Galactic Heroes
This line has proved to be a huge success, and it's caught Hasbro a bit by surprise. We've already reported on four new sets planned as repaints in order to keep the line going for the first quarter of 2006, all in new black-and-silver packaging.

If you think the following sound a bit familiar, you are not alone! It seems that the original 2002 'Star Wars Jr.' sets under the Playskool name will be coming out in the Galactic Heroes banner. This is a great way to get caught up for those who may have come in late.

Hoth 2-Pack (Luke Skywalker and Han Solo?)
Endor 2-Pack with Speeder Bike (Luke?)
Endor 2-Pack with Speeder Bike (Scout Trooper?)
Geonosis 2-Pack (Mace Windu and Geonosian Warrior?)
Coruscant 2-Pack
Emperor with red Shock Trooper


Force Battlers
Look for some returning favorite figures in this still-young line, with new paintjobs and lots of new accessories.

Lightsabers
Every Star Wars fan needs a lightsaber! Look for the Basic and Electronic assortments to continue on in 2006 with the new black-and-silver packaging from The Saga Collection.

Poll
The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
