If you didn't see it on the front page, prepare to dance for joy. Another of the Fan Choice Figure losers is being produced. Along with an often requested version of everyone's favorite Astromech Droid. And the harmonica playing frog. Damn, 2004 is gonna be an expensive and great year for Star Wars fans. Might be the best year ever. After all, this blows away the POTJ line so far even. Atleast in my opinion.
MTFBWY and HH!!HASBRO SAGA: New Figs & More News From Hasbro Q&A Session
2 highly-requested droids (sorry, not R5-D4 though) and a harmonica player were just announced.
This news comes straight from the floor of the 2003 Chicago Wizard World convention, from the "Playing with Hasbro" Q&A session that just wrapped up. A few new Star Wars figures were announced, specifically:
R1-G4 (the 6'-tall astromech droid seen in ANH)
R2-D2 with drink tray (as seen in ROTJ)
Rappertunie (the Shawda Ubb harmonica player in the Max Rebo band as seen in ROTJ: Special Edition)
Other news from the Hasbro Q&A: Clone Wars Kit Fisto will have articulated ankles and ball-jointed shoulders to make him look like he's swimming; Hasbro announced that there will be no 12" Clone Wars figures; and the newest Saga packaging with the gold border will continue for 2004.
After the Q&A session, SirSteve got a moment to talk with Hasbro, who said that the Jabba the Hutt coming out next year will be from ROTJ, rather than ANH:SE or the prequels.
Stay tuned for more coverage of the 2003 Chicago Wizard World convention.
