Show Notes

Marjorie and Arnie go into the show archives for this classic review of the first wave of Hasbro's modern figure line!

2015 marks Hasbro's 20th consecutive year of making Hasbro Star Wars figures.  In 1995 the first figures in what's dubbed "Hasbro's modern figure line" were released--the Power of the Force series.  To commemorate this, Star Wars Action News hosts Marjorie and Arnie dug deep into the show archives to bring you an encore presentation of this episode from 1995!

Join Marjorie and Arnie as they review Wave 1 of Kenner's Power of the Force 2 figure line, including Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, and the Stormtrooper!

Then join Brock for the review of the then-new novel Darksaber, and Nathan P. Butler reflects on the conclusion of the Dark Empire saga with the "new" release Empire's End!

All that, plus a look back on what it means to have 20 years of figures, on this encore presentation of Star Wars Action News!
