    Apparently the Toy Fair in America brought the official end to the Galactic Heroes line :( ... but Hasbro is releasing sort-of similar deformed / kiddy Jedi Force figures instead, so start saving to re-buy all the figures and vehicles.

    These are from Playing With My Galactic Heroes ...

    I'm sad about the end of GH, but my wallet is happier. I have no interest in that Jedi Force line. But now I can just make sure I have the most complete GH collection as possible! I went out and bought the Kamino and Purchase of the Driods Cinema Scenes (which I was going to skip since it was mostly repacks) after I read that it was ending. I got the last ones of each at Toys R Us, so that was good.

    There's still quite a few of the 2-packs around in shops down here and a couple of the AT-ATs on bargain shelves (although only slightly cheaper) if you're looking for anything in particular.

    I haven't looked at the pictures of those Jedi Force ones yet, but I simply haven't got the room to store an more stuff, which is why I didn't collect the Galactic Heroes ... in many ways I would have preferred those instead of the 3 3/4" figures.

    This also means the occasionally rumoured animated Galactic Heroes TV show won't be happening either. :( I thought it would have been a great idea for a kids show and spin-off computer games (along the line of the Lego games and Super Bombad Racing).

    The only thing I am looking for is a Princess Leia figure in her white dress (I want to customize it). But that one is so old I don't know if it'd be on the shelves there. I haven't looked on eBay yet. :p

    We're also looking for the GH AT-ST. It was planned to be a Kohl's exclusive this past fall..but was cancelled. However, it did turn up in England or Europe apparently. If they happen to be available in NZ, let us know. :)

    I forgot about that one... I bet it'll never come to the U.S. now!

    I can't recall ever seeing the AT-ST. There's still a few AT-ATs around and quite a few of the 3 3/4" scale vehicles (TIE Fighter, TIE Bomber, TIE Interceptor, Anakin's Jedi Starfighter, Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Starfighter).

    Quite a few GH Padme's around, but no Leia so far.

    Maybe some good news for you guys from the Playing With My Galactic Heroes website about the AT-ST ...
