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:

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
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).
