We had a feeling these were coming - it's the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars after all. Even though most of them are repacks - frankly, I love them. Love the vintage Kenner cardbacks. They are even more impressive once you hold them in your hand. Serious dose of nostalgia.
They were announced and shown at Toy Fair in New York this past weekend. And they went up for sale on Hasbrotoyshop.com. What I didn't realize is they were in stock. So used to preordering everything these days. They arrived today. They are awesome.
Even more awesome is the original 12 will be finished. While the Tusken Raider was already announced last year, the Jawa and Death Squad Commander are on their way as well in the second wave, coming this summer.
Wave 1 includes Ben, Han, Luke, Princess Leia and R2D2. R2 was already sold out by the time I ordered these.
