"My name is Jason Brown. I'm from Gaithersburg, MD. I am also with the DCSWCC. I was recently
in Ocean City, Maryland. I wasn't expecting to see SW on the beach. However, there were several SW
masks on dummies, sporting SW kites I'd never seen before. These were prototype kites that are not out on the market, yet. The kites I seen were: Darth Maul square, an R2-D2 life-size, an Ep.3 Obi-Wan vs. Darth Vader, Vader head, Vader with flames, Vader red diamond, and the COOLEST ---- An X-Wing Fighter!!!! To take it one step further, there was a Darth Vader and a Jedi on the beach. Vader was flying the Vader head kite, and a Jedi with sunglasses flying the X-Wing.






The store that was advertising them has a location on the boardwalk. It's called The Kite Loft.
They were taking in store pre-orders for the kites, but the kites will not be in stock for another two months. That's what they said. The X-Wing I believe was the most expensive, running around $50-55.00. They will have them on their website in the future at www.kiteloft.com.

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.
