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!

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.
