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:

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.
