Hasbro is hoping on lightning striking twice with the follow up to The Vintage Collection. Aptly called The Modern Collection, The new assortment will feature card backs based on The Power Of The Force's 1995 design. No word yet on what will hit the shelves, but we've learned that Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi will be offered as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive three pack. The first assortment is expected to be available in August. Many Bothans dies to bring us this information.

UPDATE: For those that didn't figure it out, this was a joke. Always be mindful of the date when we reveal a new product line in April...
