It was on the TV, it was in the action figure aisle, and eventually (finally) it was on the silver screen. But before it was, we were Living Star Wars at the newsstand and we couldn't be happier. In a lot of ways, the Star Wars stories published in popular magazines did more good than anything else leading up to the release date for The Phantom Menace and now with thirteen years of hindsight under our belts, there has never been a better time to relive the excitement we felt reading all those magazines with awesome Star Wars covers before we got to enjoy the first of the prequels.

Side note: while writing this I bought seven magazines I didn't currently own. Can't wait to get them!

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.
