    Big Slave I rumors again?

    I was just reading about how hasbro has picked up the license for Star Trek toys and one of the ships will be a big Enterprise. However, what was interesting about the description was that it referenced the success of the BMF and the anticipated success of the Big AT-AT and Big Slave I.

    Is this more April fools junk, misinformation, or did a close to the vest secret about a Big Slave I just get leaked???

    That has april fool's written all over it. I can't imagine that whoever had the Star Trek License for the last movie would have only had a 1 year agreement. Also, since it seemed like sales of those toys tanked, I can't imagine them taking the risk on something like that.

    The thing about the Kirk hands seals the deal, it's definitely an April fools joke.

    I agree. I know that April fools is a great time to screw with collectors minds, but I would prefer that after the day is done some type of indicator was put on the articles to let us know it was all in fun.

    They april fooled you. No way Hasbro would buy the Trek license right now, it's a worthless license for them as they market to kids first, and there's no interest for kids.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    ha ha ha ha ha he he he he.......not funny.
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    damn was hoping this was true..would love to see Hasbro's direction with Star Trek...would be awesome if they also made Classic Star Trek as well as some of the other spin-off series, DS9, TNG, Enterprise, Voyager etc. would love to see a Wrath of Khan series.

    this is why April Fools can be a real pain at times...
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Yeah, I'm sure that DS9 and Voyager based toys would just fly off the shelves right now.

    Geared towards the kids, Hasbro will be offering a selection of cool role play toys including the Federation Phaser, Romulan Phaser, Federation Communicator, Sulu's Sword, and in the spirit of the Hulk hands, Kirk Hands
    Kirk hands, eh? With real groping action no doubt.

    If done the way they described the big Enterprise could be pretty cool. I just don't see how it would be possible to do it in the 3.5' scale described and still have all the features as well as being approximately to scale and not letting the nacelle pylons be too fragile. I didn't see any acknowledgement that it was a 4/1 prank, but I'd agree that it must have been until I see official word from Hasbro.

    With Boba Fett and the Slave I's upcoming appearance in The Clone Wars, as well as his probable future in the live-action show and this being the 30th anniversary of ESB, I still think there's a possibility for some sort of Slave I release. Perhaps they're saving it for Comic-Con or CV? Who knows.

    I definately don't think it's impossible to have a big Slave 1, I just don't think this article is a good source for reliable information. I just don't think they'll release both the AT-AT and Slave 1 this Christmas season. Seems like too much too close together.
