It’s hard to believe it, but a decade has passed since the AOTC line officially launched at retail.
Personally, I can recall a night of hitting every Wal-Mart in my area looking for that dang Royal Guard, and hearing some guy bragging about how he found two of them at a different Wal-Mart… only the next morning, to find that Toy”R”us had gotten in dozens of that assortment, and feeling relieved, but broke!
Feel free to relive the excitement of that launch in our forums or at the message board at Jeditemplearchives, and special thanks to forum member Darth Eddie for the reminder!
Where are you going this afternoon? We think we’ll take off for a little bit. You know, some place warm. Some place where the beer flows like wine and the beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano….

Barely a month after new product hit the shelves, some Wal-Marts are already putting some of Hasbro’s new line on clearance. It seems like some retailers are realizing that vastly inferior repacks from a decade ago aren’t in demand; especially at inflated prices – how long before Hasbro realizes this too?

Forum member Scarrviper has posted images of one of the most amazing dioramas I’ve ever seen in the forums. Make sure you’re sitting down for this one, because it’s nothing short of spectacular – check it out after the jump!
The highly anticipated Deleted Scenes figures have hit eBay, which hopefully means it won’t be long before we see these in stores.
Thanks to forum member Sybeck1 for the heads up!
Our friends at Jeditemplearchives.com are reporting that the brand spankin new Class I vehicles have been spotted at retail here in the United States – click on the image above for their report!
Forum member Paulskywalker also found these in the UK recently, so hopefully this is a sign of good things to come with the 2012 distribution!
