Star Wars - The Clone Wars (Collection I and II) (Hasbro)



Well, here we are - Our last post celebrating the released of Star Wars on Blu-Ray. We really hope you've enjoyed reading the prior posts as much as we enjoyed bringing them to you.



COLLECTION I


Along with The Legacy Collection in 2008 Hasbro launched The Clone Wars line. The two lines share some similarities. Such as;

1) They both had 1st Issue Release Foils
2) The are both (currently) broken up into three sets
3) The third set is a current set which is still running today

We're going to look at the first two of the three sets.

And there you have it. Every complete Star Wars line to date since the Power of the Force II line was released back in 1995.

Currently there are three lines that Hasbro has been pumping out; The Legacy Collection (now known as Saga Legends), The Clone Wars, and The Vintage Collection. It's unknown at this time how long they will run for. However, there is a new line just around the corner set to launch currently titled Movie Heroes.

With Lucas quickly latching on to a whole new generation of Star Wars fans, it will be interesting to see what direction the series goes in. Will we start to see more and more toys based off of the Prequels and Clone Wars series? Or will we still get a mixed variety of the Original Trilogy, Prequels and Clone Wars? Your guess is as good as mine. One thing is for certain though - This time, Star Wars is here to stay!

Join us next Monday, October 3, when we return to our regular schedule of posts. That's once a week for those of you who have forgotten.
