From 1978 to 1982, Star Wars comic book fans got a weekly dose of adventures in that galaxy far, far away with the Star Wars Weekly comic book.

Issue #118 had The Empire Strikes Back added to the title, as the movie was reprinted, followed by other US stories. Other Marvel sci-fi characters were included in each issue, such as the Micronauts, Warlock, the Watcher, Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord, Deathlok, and Man-Wolf.

In 1981, the title changed to a monthly schedule and dropped the "Weekly" from the title. The comic art covers began using more photos from the films, and then became a series of annuals and specials printed in hardcover editions.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
