Hasbro is going to make us believe that star Wars truly is forever in 2006. Beyond the onslaught of amazing 3 3/4” scale toys, Big H plans on spoiling us with all the other things we’ve grown to love over the last few years.




Star Wars Transformers
Beyond what else we’ve already seen and hear about there will also be a deluxe two pack where, check this out; two figures will merge into one ship! Crazy, ain’t it? Clearly this could only be:
Han Solo & Chewbacca / Millennium Falcon




Galactic Heroes
With children and collectors who jumped on after the initial Playskool line was long gone in mind, Hasbro will be offering a few of the cooler figures again in the popular Galactic Heroes two packs. For everyone else, they’ll also be throwing in some brand new figures and some previously mentioned repaint figures.

Playskool Reissues
Darth Maul & Obi-Wan

New figures
Sandtrooper & Obi-Wan*
Greedo & Han Solo*
Luke Skywalker & Han Solo (both in Stormtrooper disguise)
Wedge Antilles & TIE Pilot
Stormtrooper & Rebel Soldier (both in Hoth battle gear)
Darth Vader* & Leia Organa (Bespin)
Luke Skywalker (Bespin) & Lando Calrissian


Repaints
Clone Trooper & Battle Droid
Emperor & Red Shock Trooper
Chewbacca & C-3PO

*Indicates figure may be a repaint or repack




Roll Play Toys

Looks like Hasbro has learned to never, ever consider discontinuing their roll play Star Wars toys again, so kids and completists will be searching toy aisles in search of their favourite weapons in brand new Saga packaging. Currently listed for repackaging are:

Character Lightsabers
Ultimate Lightsaber
General Grievous Blaster
Clone Troopers Blaster
Stormtrooper Blaster
Darth Vader Voice Changer

Poll
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.
