In the latest issue of the Star Wars Insider (#73), Hasbro confirms more of our Galactic Swami reports (Yes folks, the good Swami is the real deal). We put together a few points for you to peruse and items to add to your want list. The Insider is hitting member mailboxes now, so sign yourself up to a subscription if you haven't already!

In the Insider's Toy Box Column, Hasbro adds some images of the new Han AT-ST Driver, Red Leader X-Wing, and the Target Star Wars Glasses with figure (pictured is the Obi-Wan Kenobi set).

  • The Battle of Endor Wave is confirmed as Wave 6 for 2004, with Han Solo as an AT-ST Driver, General Madine, and General Lando Calrissian.
  • Most major retailers will carry both Basic and Ultra assortments for 2004.
  • 6 new Ultra figures are planned for 2004, and some older ones will be "lightly distributed".
  • Target will be offering action figures packed with plastic reproductions of the classic Burger King  glasses from the Original Trilogy. There will be 5 glasses altogether representing all 5 movies (sans EP3 of course). These will be availble in March.
  • As we reported earlier from a case assortment posted by Entertainment Earth, 4 previously released Unleashed figures (Slave Leia, Darth Sidious, Luke Jedi, and Obi-Wan Kenobi) will be recarded in the new snazzier style packaging for those who missed it the first time.
  • Toys R Us looks to be the retailer of choice for exclusive Star Wars vehicles next year, beginning with the Red Leader X-Wing Fighter (the photo shows a reissued/repainted FX X-Wing with a pilot and an empty slot for an astromech droid. Perhaps an individually packaged R5 unit is planned for the future?)
  • As reported by Swami, a series of Jedi Council Scene Packs is scheduled in '04 for Toys R' Us. Fans can now recreate the entire Council Scene, including the center portion.Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Ki-Adi Mundi comprise the first set.
  • The "Skirmish At Carkoon" report has also been confirmed.

Look for more exciting Hasbro, Swami, and other news coming in the next couple of months right here in Galactic Hunter!
