Here's a story I wrote over at SSG about Hasbro stating that the MMs and AFs will return. First, we see Ep 2 sets, then, Classic and Ep 1. Why couldn't they be sooner though?

All right!! Exciting news!

*SPOILER WARNING*

I'd love to see the Coruscant Taxi from Ep. I, and so far from what we know of Ep. II from the official site I can't wait for a Jedi Starfighter! For the Classic line I'd love a Star Destroyer, or how about a Death Star?? I wonder if there are any plans for smaller size Beast Packs again? I'm also hoping the return of the MM line means die cast vehicles as well.

Viva Action Fleet!!!!!!
I would be terribly disappointed if when all the movies in the Saga were made I had no AF ships for EP II or III. This is the heart of my collection!
Bring back the Battle Packs! The Mini-scenes were all right, but nothing that could hold a candle to many of the great ships from the OT (at-st, land speeder). But with every great line there comes some nonsense.
I want:
Outrider
Medical Frigate
Star destroyer
and the unproduced Pod racers looked cool although I wasn't too impressed with the Death Star.

If they want to make playsets, they should follow the old Micro Collection line as a model. While I realize that those didn't sell too well, the Death Star world is the best Sw toy I own, and is compatible with the AF figures. An AF Jabba's Palace would be nice, since the MM one doesn't really cut it for me (although I did buy it since it was the only thing out there in that scale to represent the scene)

Plenty of EP1 stuff, Those Playsets like Gungan Sacred Place W/Nass/Gungan and speeder(heaps of that series)
Heaps of those podracer two packs, the 2 characters and 2 vehicles.
Those Diecast Vehicles (Are they Galoob?)

I can't wait to see what's in store for Ep 2 either, but I'm really hoping a new set of classic trilogy vehicles with new sculpts and different gimmicks will be released.


Phonic, sorry for the edit, I had to add a spoiler warning even though it was on the official site.
