Star Wars at Toy Fair ’07!

ON’s recent visit to Toy Fair ’07 included a stop at the booths of some of the premiere manufacturers of “Star Wars” figures and collectibles including Sideshow Collectibles, Master Replicas and the French company Attakus. All of them had some very cool-looking new “Star Wars” items to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of George Lucas’ classic sci-fi series.

Sideshow Collectibles had a lot of their great “Star Wars” collectible figures on display, many of which were already sold-out before the Toy Fair. These included their amazingly lifelike Darth Maul scale figure, Boba Fett and a model of Luke carrying Yoda. Sideshow also had on display the first in their line of “Star Wars” dioramas, which was a scene of Obi-Wan taking on Anakin from “Star Wars: Episode III.”

Master Replicas had prototypes for their new series of full-size “Star Wars” helmet replicas, including their new Clone Trooper Gree and Luke Skywalker X-Wing Pilot Helmets, but they also were offering a series of less-expensive miniature scaled helmet replicas of Luke’s X-Wing helmet, TIE Fighter pilot helmet, Boba Fett’s helmet as well as Clone Trooper and Storm Trooper helmets. They also were offering a new replica Yoda Force FX Lightsaber. Their impressive Studio Scale Millenium Falcon was on display, as was their prototype for Luke Skywalker’s Red Five Rebel X-Wing.

With a MSRP of $2199, their Millenium Falcon looked great but it was quickly overshadowed by Attakus’ Death Star Dioarama, a modular metal collection which included a full-size detailed Millenium Falcon and the Death Star Corridor where Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi have their final battle. You can then fill this scene up with small metal figurines of all the characters from “Star Wars: Episode V” sold separately. Over 70″ long and 17″ tall, the pictures probably don’t do justice to the scale and detail of the Millenium Falcon with one side being cutaway to see the interiors. (The dioarama sells for over $3,000 and there were only 400 of them made total, so it’s worth it!) The Attakus catalog also had pictures of their in-development Dagobah Diorama, which will probably be even larger.

Attakus’ booth also had prototypes of their new 16″ Probe Droid, a TIE Fighter Pilot, a Sandtrooper, a Gamorrean Guard and Jabba’s green-skinned “Pet” Oola. These paled in comparison to their 16.5″ General Grievous, which was one of the cooler figures at Toy Fair.
