Unless you’re a hardcore archivist like we are, you may have not been aware of the fact that Hasbro gave collectors a few preliminary products to tease what the new line would be after 2005’s Revenge Of The Sith line would come to an end. This new line entitled The Saga Collection actually started out in 2005 even though must refer to it as the line of 2006. (Editor’s Note: In fact, it even extended well into 2007 before finally capping off with a few cool exclusives before the 30 (77-07) line came to be.) The Revenge Of The Sith collection was one of the most aggressive lines for a Star Wars film ever. The dedication and focus to bring collectors a uniquely diverse character base was unprecedented and even with the amount of figures we did receive, there were still others we were desperate to see get made as well. A pair of Walmart exclusives entitled Separation Of The Twins came in the all-new The Saga Collection line look packaging, yet Hasbro kept elements of the Revenge Of The Sith line look present to hold off of the transition as long as they could. Most notably is the “fire” background of the Star Wars logo.
What you may find interesting is that the Separation Of The Twins figures came is a special case assortment which included 50% of some key figures from the Revenge Of The Sith line. Talk about blending two line looks together, right?! The packaging is pretty cool. There is color coding (orange represents Episode III) and the silver and black elements have returned to bring in some of that “old school” spirit back. We find it humorous that although these exclusives contain well-articulated versions of Bail Organa and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Hasbro has decided that they are actually the “accessories” here instead of the unarticulated infant Leia Organa and infant Luke Skywalker “pack-ins”. Star Wars fans begged Hasbro for infant versions of the twins and here they are. At a very reasonable $4.77 each set, you really have no room to complain that this is unaffordable. Put these two sets in your budget because they are absolutely necessary purchases. Not only do we now have cute sculpts of the Skywalker children, they’ve been made to interact quite well with the previously sculpted “adult” figures that accompany them.
Status: Infant Leia Organa (with Bail Organa) is an all-new "figure".
