    Comments: The first of the Eta-2 model Jedi starfighters was this exhibition model, demonstrated at a secret test facility in front of the Jedi Council. Featuring many of the system upgrades and mechanical tweaks suggested by Anakin Skywalker, the ship’s agility and speed even when controlled by a clone pilot impressed the Jedi observers. Unlike other Eta-2 starfighters – built on a production line – this ship was hand built, and included many personal touches left by the technicians and droids that assembled it. Though it never flew again, the ship ended up in the personal collection of Darth Vader following the collapse of the Republic.

    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.
