Yeah, Nick definitely makes a good point about the vast # of rehashes in 2004 freeing up the developmental teams to work on E3 dilligently.

A good thing to think of too is that it's the last film as far as anyone knows.  Could theoretically be the line's last big push and it's likely the company's not overlooking this fact, so it may have extra umph to it.  Plus whatever alterations and adjustments needed to be made after the lessons learned from the E2 line and things...  It seems every film's been a "learning experience" for Hasbro as they've come and gone.

Good points.  I'd like to see an all out effort on EP3, not that the last two launches haven't been 'all out.'  Just in terms of the world class sculpting, articulation, and selection we're getting now.

I guess I really didn't miss too much while I was away.  Nothing much shown at Toy Fair that hadn't previously been or covered elsewhere, other than the carded vintage Luke.  Rather disappointing showing from Hasbro in that respect.  I assume no one's heard anything to the effect of them running another "Star Wars only" showing like last year?  That would be nice if they could spill the beans a little more on 4Q'04, or discuss their plans a little more leading up to Ep. 3, and the possibility that the OTC line may continue on up through that point at least.  Oh well.   :-\
