Whether you realize it or not, this is a very special moment in Star Wars history. Take a moment and enjoy it. Tomorrow everything changes. For the first time in sixteen years we will see things we haven't even imagined as the teaser for the first film in the third trilogy in the Star Wars saga is given to us to dissect for the next few months. That statement is what makes the subject of this edition of eT so relevant. When this mock up was created, no one (really) knew who this dude was or what part he'd play in the overall story. Follow this link to check out the extremely cool Darth Maul CinemAction Packaging mock up and ask yourself, who are we going to be introduced to this weekend that is entirely new to the overall story...

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

It isn't for me.
