Diamond, Hasbro Offer New Previews Exclusive Star Wars Action Figure Pack
(Baltimore, MD) -- October 17, 2006 -- Just in time to mark the 30th
anniversary of one of the world's biggest film and merchandising
franchises, Hasbro Toys will reunite the commanders of the Galactic
Empire's most formidable weapon - and invite Star Wars fans everywhere
to their meeting with the Star Wars: "Imperial Briefing Room" Previews
Exclusive Action Figure Pack, the latest addition to a growing line of
Previews Exclusive Star Wars toys offered by Diamond Comic Distributors.
The new set continues a successful relationship between Diamond and
Hasbro Toys that has brought fans of the Star Wars films a number of
toys and collectibles available exclusively through Diamond's monthly
Previews catalog, including the best selling Jawa Sandcrawler and Bounty
Hunter Action Figure Gift Set.
The 3.75"-tall figures in the Star Wars: "Imperial Briefing Room" set
re-create the classic scene from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope in
which Grand Moff Tarkin and Darth Vader plot the demise of the Rebel
Alliance with the Death Star's Imperial officers. In addition to Vader
and Tarkin, the seven-figure set contains figures of Admiral Motti
(loosening his collar as Vader chokes him with the Force), General
Tagge, Chief Bast, Officer Cass, and Colonel Wulff Yularen, along with
blasters and, for Vader, a lightsaber.
The set features window-box packaging designed to reproduce the Death
Star briefing room from the film, and bears the distinctive "Previews
Exclusive" logo on the front panel. It is scheduled to ship in January
2007, in plenty of time for fans and collectors to begin celebrating the
30th anniversary of Star Wars' original 1977 theatrical release.
Fans can find this and other great products based on today's most
popular movie-based toys and merchandise at their local comic shop, or
