With the release of Attack of the Clones in 2002, Ferrero, who is a major candy manufacturer in Europe, released a set of Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs with hippo figurines dressed as Star Wars characters. Star Wars hippo eggs where found 1 in 7 and a set consisted of 10 characters. Each came with a paper describing the character with a picture. Later, they released larger plush versions with a few games and other figurines. See Rebelscum's special feature for more information. The set consists of:

Aubacca (Hippo Chewbacca)
Dark Laser (Hippo Darth Vader)
Erzwo Hippo (Hippo R2-D2)

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
