Wizard World 2002: Hasbro Deluxe Figures

Wizard World gets treated with the first showing of the new Anakin Skywalker with flipping action and the very cool Flying Geonosian Warrior with the much desired sonic blaster and what looks to be a Geonosian hive with suction cup. The hive accessory is designed to be attached to the upcoming Arena playset. Hasbro tells us that the sonic blaster was a later addition to the film, which is the reason it didn't come out until now. They actually began work on this figure with initial concept art rather than Lucasfilm archive reference photos. The sample shown is an early prototype. The production figure's sonic blast will have clear plastic. Anakin, who is the third "flipping" Deluxe figure in the Saga line comes with a packed in panel that interconnects with the other two.

Added on Saturday afternoon are samples of the new Deluxe Yoda with Force Powers and C-3PO. Yoda comes with a crane and Super Battle Droid, who has the hapless role of being mean green's practice dummy. C-3PO trades parts with a Battle Droid to strike fear on Jedi dogs..well, not really, but it's a pretty darned sight. The toy also has a cross-over feature with the new Arena Playset. The packed in assembly unit connects with the one included with the playset.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
