    With the exception of Han and Vader I would love to see a series based on those. They look awesomely victorian...like something out of Oz...ironically. :p

    Okay... Keeping things interesting... and I know theforce.net covered it already. but I thought I'd bring it back!

    R2-D2 - The sideshow collectable... http://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=4489&sku=2215
    C3P-0 - The sideshow collectable... http://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=4489&sku=2212

    These are amazing looking and read to me like they are being toted as Life-Size Action Figures... but WOW, talk about toys for the rich! R2-D2 is $5450.00 and C3P-0 is only $5950.00. Act fast! quantities are limited!

    Toy trains 'Star Wars' fans to use The Force...

    Could The Force be with you? A toy due in stores this fall will let you test and hone your Jedi-like abilities.

    The toaster was a bit pricey. The force thing doesn't look like much but the idea of the maze sounds good

    That'd be definitly something interesting to play around with. I may have to get to the states for that toy and a couple of others.

    It sure would be cheaper then the $4000 but then there is the problem of moving the projector up and down stairs. This is Episode 4-6 R2. No jet packs

    The new Earth Day SW shirts are kind'a cute. My favorite is "Recycling. It's not just for Jawas."
