Looking at the auction for this large Episode I lot is not just nostalgic, its a bit sad and a true cautionary tale about living life adhering to the collect to collect mantra. First off, there are a lot of great iconic collectibles that promised us the Dark Ages were over and we'd forever bask in the light of the Force, and for those of us around in 1999, there are many pieces we've all but forgotten about that are fun to see again. Sadly, none of it is worth a fraction of what the seller is asking. We'd be interested to see what the lot would go for on an open auction. Despite how much fun it is to look at everything included in this auction, at the end of the day it is just another entry into the TRA Hall of Fame, even if we wish it weren't.

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.
