The Official Site's Cargo Bay has been updated with some new information for collectors, including loose images of upcoming toys and tentative release dates. Some other details are also revealed, including official names and some new vehicles.

While there have been some reports of finding some of these toys at local retailers, here are the official release dates for Star Wars toys for 2003. Notice that Anakin Skywalker, Boba Fett and R2-D2 now have official names, and that several Action Fleet vehicles are revealed for the first time. It is interesting to note that the repackaged Power of the Jedi figures are missing from the Cargo Bay, although some lucky collectors have already found them.

Remember, these dates are tentative and are subject to change. The second wave of the Wal-Mart exclusive Cantina sets are listed as being out already, although there has been no word that these have been found by collectors yet. However, with Wal-Mart stores resetting their toy aisles this week, it is very possible that they could show up any day now.

But enough with the commentary....on to the list!

I've actually seen Anakin listed as Anakin Skywalker: Secret Ceremony. I believe that is what will appear on the card. I think that they are just listing it on StarWars.Com's Cargo Bay that way, to more distinguish it from the other Ani's. :)

MTFBWY and HH!!
