2004 International Toy Fair New York
The first part of the line-up will actually feature the original Kenner logo and graphics, right down the assortment number. If you've been following our recent series of Vintage Photo Archive updates, you'll be familiar with most of these designs. The catch here is that the figures themselves are all-new sculpts, complete with extra articulation, accessories and "soft goods" where appropriate. There will be 12 figures in this line, 4 from each film.
The second part of the new line-up will be a mixture of all-new figures and repackaged favorites, with a packaging design using elements of the Kenner series and the recent Saga series. Using an "OTC" numbering system, there will be at least 20 figures in this line, including Dagobah and Bespin themed waves similar to what we've already seen in 2004. Rebel figures will be in blue, while Imperial figures will be in red. New figures include Ben Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, R2-D2 and Yoda from Dagobah, and Princess Leia, Cloud Car Pilot, and Lobot from Bespin. The rest of the figures will be re-released favorites including Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot), Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker (Jabba's Palace), Han Solo, R2-D2, Wicket, Stormtrooper, Ben Kenobi, C-3PO, Scout Trooper (clean version), and a TIE Fighter Pilot.
On the vehicle front, look for a re-released X-Wing and TIE Fighter, packaged in the OTC packaging. Both ships look to be the exact same versions as the POTF2 releases, which is strange since better versions have been made since then.
In the 12" scale, the nod to Kenner continues, as the vintage-style designs are incorporated onto the larger scale figures. On display were a new version of Luke Skywalker and a Stormtrooper. The third figure is this line, Boba Fett, was not shown.
Other items being re-released in the OTC packaging include lightsabers, Electronic Ask Yoda, and a Monopoly game. Several of the Unleashed figures were also on display, but sadly, nothing new. See the entire gallery here: Hasbro.
