It seems hard to believe that there has never been a Star Wars ViewMaster in the 30+ years since the original movie's release. Well that's all changed with a report from Rebelscum reader Aaron S. who found them at Toys "R" Us.

Attack Of The Clones is referred to as Story 1, and comes in a pack with 3 reels, that comprise a 21 image story, while Revenge Of The Sith is Story 2, and comes in a 3D Viewer Gift Set with the ViewMaster itself, stylised to look like Darth Vader's mask.

Thanks to Aaron for letting us know about these two sets, and if anyone sees reels of any of the other movies, be sure to let us know!

UPDATE: Aaron followed-up on his earlier email to let us know that the Gift Set was priced at $14.99 and the reels were $3.99. He also mentioned that he didn't find either set with the rest of the Star Wars items, but happened to stumble across the pack of reels near the arts & crafts stuff, and then had to ask an associate to show him the gift set.

So to anybody who is on the lookout for these, good hunting!

Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
