Last night while doing a round at Wal-Mart I came across 2 boxes of Electronic Lightsabers that had on them a stickers that read "ON SHELF NO EARLIER THAN April 2, 2005", so, of course I opened them, only to find that it contained 4 Lightsabers, 1 Obi-wan, 1 Anakin and 2 Darth Vader, they are all in the same OTC black package with a sticker on the front that reads " BONUS LIGHTSABER ACTION DVD!!" I bought one to see what was it and when I played it this is what it contains:

  • Chapter 1 and 8 of the first season of the animated clone wars.
  • A mini documentary " the legend of the Lightsaber" which includes some spoilers for Episode III, (highlight to read) it shows some storyboards and the actual weapons of Grievous Bodyguards which they explain are the only weapons that CAN NOT be destroyed by a Lightsaber!
  • Star Wars Trilogy DVD TV ad.
  • 2 TV ads for the Star Wars Original Trilogy collection figures and Lightsabers.

    Clearly is something that will come out on April along with the new stuff, the package of the DVD is a black sleeve with the silver star wars logo and has a 2005 date. I hope some more stuff comes out soon, I will keep you posted on any new finds!


    Thanks for writing in Guillermo!

    UPDATE: Rebelscum Forumite "Darth Hirsch" sent in a link to an image of the lightsabers in question. While not actually a ROTS item they do indeed have a bonus DVD with ROTS content! Check out the pic here!

    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.
