When Star Wars toys came back in 1995 it became a hot topic with collectors of the original Kenner line. Through much debate it was agreed that the original line, to help differentiate, would be called 'Vintage'. Now that the modern line moves healthily into its seventeenth year the terminology is completely messed about. Take, for instance, the original Kenner Villains Set three packs from 1978 and see how long it takes to find it by searching "Star Wars Vintage". Sure it has always been tough to find, but now that we have Target exclusive "Vintage Villains Set three packs", not to mention all the other modern "Vintage Collection" pieces, it is especially difficult to find. Ah, Star Wars toys, how we love you!

Now that information about Celebration Anaheim is coming out, the Probe Droid is curious if you plan on attending the biggest party of 2015...
You couldn't stop me from attending!
I'll thinking about it...
I'm waiting for more news before I decide.
I can't get involved! I've got work to do!
That's your uncle talking.
Nope. I want to but I can't make it work.
No way! Massively cool social events aren't my cup of tea.
