Star Wars - The Saga Collection (Hasbro)



We're down to our last four posts celebrating the release of Star Wars on Blu-Ray. It's been an enjoyable process so far, and we hope you're all enjoying reading as much as we are posting.

There's a lot going on in The Saga Collection which incorporated much of 2006. So much so that it can be a rather overwhelming set to compile. The easiest way to approach this collection is to break it down into the following categories and sub categories;

1) Basic Figures
A) Blue Pack Ins
B) Red Pack Ins
2) Galactic Hunt
3) Heroes and Villains
4) Greatest Battles
5) Vintage
6) Exclusive Figures
7) Battle Packs
8) Vehicles
A) Regular
B) Repacks
C) Exclusives

  1. Where is the Imperial Stormtrooper (Hoth Battle Gear) figure from this collection? I thought he was also a part of it...

    1. Looks like we goofed and put the Vintage Collection Stormtrooper from the Original Trilogy Collection in its place. Thanks for pointing that out. We have made the correction.
