Following an extensive interview with Sideshow Collectibles' Creative Director Tom Gilliland regarding the newly revealed Interpretative Maquettes concept (which I will transcribe and publish as soon as I can), there was a casual conversation on the topic of Boba Fett and IG-88 where he revealed that SSC will be handling these characters in a similar manner as their Jabba's Palace collection. If all goes as planned, collectors should expect to see all six bounty hunters released in a short period of time and they should be making space for an accompanying Polystone Executioner's Bridge diorama to display the set. In addition, it was also revealed that there is a fully fucntional prototype of the IG-88 figure and we should be seeing it some time soon. Eagle-eyed readers will spot it in the gallery attached to the Collectors' Panel story below.

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.
