The Swami has returned after an extended vacation to bring you a sneak preview of upcoming toys for Revenge of the Sith. We've got vehicles, deluxe figures, and 12 inch figures galore, and if you're sensitive to SPOILERS ,no matter how big or small, then browse away from this page to remain unspoiled.

The Deluxe figure assortment makes a comeback in 2005 with the return of the Spider Droid ---this time with a bigger gun. Clones also make a return with a Clone Trooper 3 Pack Swami hopes will be all sorts of color/rank variants of the lightly shipped and much in demand Super Articulated Clone Trooper. There's also a Yoda on Dragonfly which brings up all sorts of visions of the diminutive Jedi Master on a winged insect. And finally, to establish the long known end game in the final film in the Star Wars saga, a Quick Change Darth Sidious and Anakin Skywalker with snap-on Darth Vader armor will also be available along with a Droid with Operation Table.

The 12" action figure line welcomes new Jedi females into the fold with the first ever release of Barris Offee and Aayla Secura. On the other side of the galactic coin, look for the multi-limbed dude who crashes the Jedi party with a new 12" General Grievous as well as Anakin Skywaker with Darth Vader armor, which was previously foretold in my last Swami reading.

The Revenge of the Sith collection will introduce a slew of vehicles beginning with the Sneak Preview Anakin Skywalker yellow Jedi Starfighter in early Spring. We can also expect a a Tri Droid Fighter, Wookiee Helicopter, an ARC Trooper Fighter, and a repaint of the Command Gunship. A small playset showcasing the epic lightsaber battle between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in the planet volcanic planet of Mustafar will also be released.

Wowza! That's a lot of toys! And Swami still hasn't even listed the basic action figures yet. So you'll have to check back right here at Galactic Hunter for more ROTS news to come! Don't forget about Swami's policy --- don't believe it until Hasbro admits it. Swami OUT!

Dang, that's a lot of stuff! But most of it sounds cool.

The rehash Spider Droid with a bigger gun sounds weird. Oh well, I only got one for AOTC so I may get a few more. Yoda on Dragonfly sounds sweet, I guess he rides one on Kashyyyk? I really doubt that the Clone 3-pack would be anything but the Clone Wars packs with new heads for ROTS. Quick Reveal Darth Sidious sounds stupid, do you push a button and his hood flies off? Anakin with armor better be better than the Jango with the same feature. Medical Droid has potential.

That's a lot of vehicles! Anakin's Starfighter is cool, though we won't likely get a good version of Anakin that will actually fit in there. I can't wait to see what the helicopter and Droid Fighter look like. The ARC vehicle actually has nothing to do with ARC Troopers, since they aren't in the movie, but the ARC is the precursor to the X-wing. Dunno if I'll get another Gunship, I already have three, but if it looks good enough I'll get it. And more playsets are always welcome.

It's too early to expect much, after all it is Hasbro and they do have the tendency to not give us that which we crave. It would be great to have a line that finally has no battle stances, no action features, just plain sculpting that looks normal and has character likeness. :)

That would be too easy and make sense for Hasbro to do.....

It's a great list and leads to a lot of speculation. Nice assortment of vehicles. Sounds like a few overtly gimmiky figures.

Let's hope that there are some neutral figs mixed in amongst the sweet action features.

I have dreamed of Wookie stuff for ever. I hope that I am not dissapointed.
