Good Bye Galactic Heroes Hello Jedi Force
Posted by Dustin on August 27, 2011 at 07:42 AM CST:
Well here they are, the new Jedi Force R2-D2 & C-3PO. These are hitting most stores now. Just a tip, if you are looking for them, they're not with the regular Hasbro Star Wars toys, but usually over an isle in the lil' tots section. This is the new line up that replaced the popular Galactic Heroes series. I think they're pretty cool looking, but doubt they will take off like the Galactic Heroes did.
