I've organized my thought and did a story for the front page...

Playskool Two Packs?

I would guess we will also get:

  • Darth Vader
  • Han Solo
  • Chewbacca
Beyond that I have no clue, we'll keep checking the auctions and putting our ears to the ground to see what else might be happening here

I would love to see other characters made. Maybe a Jawa, Boba Fett, an Ewok, Yoda would be cool too.  8)

There's already an Ewok.  Isn't that enough? :P

Another Vader too?  How would they differentiate it from the other?  

Sandtrooper
Scouttrooper
Tie Pilot
AT-AT driver
Snowtrooper

The Imperial five pack :D

Do a Rebel Pilots pack too please.

I guess that begs the question of what the focus for the line really is?  If it's a collector oriented line, those all make sense.  But if it's a kid oriented line you need more fuzzy things.  Blech.

No, more Ewoks! An Ewok village playset!   :-*  I would prefer them over a Jar Jar.   :P

No, I still hate you.  YOu already mailed the package so now I owe you, ergo I hate you :P

They should do playskool Trek stuff.  I only need a Spock, but would like to have one.

I picked yp the X-Wing and Naboo FIghter for 10 bucks each at the KB by me that is closing...I really like them, so I am going to run back and get the Endor, Hoth, and Mace+ sets at 5-6 bucks a piece.

Well, I'm in finally.  Somehow these have made their way out of my almost 8 and 12 year old boy's room and into my display cabinet.

I just noticed that the Falcon did not come with batteries and you put three batteries in for the following sounds:

C3PO
Chebacca yell and something else.

Then the button on the outside sends the ship into hyper drive then plays the Star Wars Theme Song!  Anyone else overlook the batteries / sounds on the Falcon?

DUDE! These things are neat. I have the first sets that came out.


If and when these come out I will be getting them. Childish as they may be, they are fun.
For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

New Playskool confirmed at the Australian Toy Fair show!

Looks like figure 2-packs, including:

Luke/R2
Leia/Han
Vader/Ben
Chewie/3PO

Padme/Anakin
Yoda/Clonetrooper
Obi-Wan/Jango

All prior sets also being re-released in new packaging.  That appears to be all the news so far...

The new packaging sort of looks like the Clone Wars cartoon line.  8)  Going to have to add these guys to my wish list.  ;)
