Our friend Derek of the Austin Fan Force sent over the following:

"Hey guys, this just hit the McDonald's Happy Meal website today. Thought you'd like to know.

It appears to be some sort of disc shooter/launcher, you put the disc on top and press a button.

R2D2, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Mace, Yoda, Maul, Sebulba, Anakin.

I think these will arrive on February 17th, a week after the movie opens."


If you looks around the Happy Meal site, there's also an "Ask Yoda" section. Another TFN reader named Ron prognosticates that this might mean that the KFC promo will not end up in the U.S. We'll see soon enough! The Phantom Menace comes to theaters in 3-D on February 10, 2012.


Thanks to Derek and Ron for the heads up!

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.
