After assisting the last of the Jedi in escaping the murderous rampages of the clone troopers, Bail Organa has a meeting with Master Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Faced with determining the fates of the newborn twins, Yoda instructs Obi-Wan to deliver Luke to his aunt and uncle on Tatooine, while Bail volunteers to adopt Leia and raise her wife his wife on Alderaan. There she will be loved and cared for as one of their own. Obi-Wan and Yoda agree that allowing the trustworthy Senator Organa to care for the child is the best option for young Leia.

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.

Infant Leia Organa With Bail Organa as a duo looks pretty good! Bail Organa is a straight repack of 2005’s ROTS Bail Organa (III 15) figure. All of his accessories (except for the environmental display stand) have been carried forward for this release. He is articulated well, but the swivel elbows are terrible and he comes without any ankle joints. In short, the figure can “move” but not all of his articulation is completely meaningful. Also, his plastic molded cape binds up his right arm so it doesn’t have a complete range of motion unless you take it off of him. But thankfully you can still pose him holding Infant Leia Organa which is a blessing since the figure doesn’t look half as good not wearing his cape. Infant Leia Organa on the other hand is simply and accessory. But we love it and she is adorable. At this scale it’s pretty hard to paint a face on a baby without making her look too cartoonish, but it looks fine to us and we’re happy that Hasbro decided to sculpt an “infant action figure” for the Star Wars line. It may seem like a no-brainer for Hasbro to make these versions of Leia and Luke, but collectors did wonder if they’d ever come. Thanks the Maker they did!
