30 Years Ago, in a Galaxy Called Hollywood . . .

George Lucas created a little movie that would change the entertainment and toy industries forever. Hasbro will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars film that started it all with a collection of 60 new 3-3/4-inch action figures from the entire Star Wars saga.

Figures will be released in waves throughout the year. Wave 1, which is available now, includes Galactic Marine (pictured), R2-D2, Obi-Wan with Grievous’ Blaster, Mace Windu, Mustafar Lava Miner, Airborne Trooper, Super Battle Droid, and the fan favorite, McQuarrie Stormtrooper. Each figure comes with a bonus collectible coin, which can be displayed in a full-color commemorative coin album (pictured).
