TPM 20th Anniversary: A Guide To CommTech Chips

TPM 20th Anniversary: Toy Catalog

5/20/2019 The Phantom Menace Hasbro

We've pulled out an Episode I booklet from 1999 and scanned in all the pages. This turned out to be a lot of fun and it's interesting to see what Star Wars figures were advertised, you'll find Episode I figures in it, but they also mixed the Original Trilogy in with some Power Of The Force figures. Towards the back you find the board and electronic games which were hip at the time. Go and have fun looking at all the toys!

TPM 20th Anniversary: CommTech Chips!

5/20/2019 The Phantom Menace Hasbro

We've added every commtech chip from the 1999 Episode I Collection to the database. Each figure entry now shows the chip and you can listen to all the voice samples. Keep in mind that the technology is 20 years old now and some of the voice samples sound quite distorted. It was a fun toy line with a neat gimmick, have fun browsing the Episode I collection and listen to the voice samples!

JBT - Jedi Business Talk - Episode #8

4/5/2019 JBT Jedi Business Talk The Phantom Menace

Hi fellow Star Wars action figure collectors and Star Wars fans! April 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of Star Wars Celebrations and in only a few weeks (May 3rd) we'll celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Episode 1 toy line! In order to celebrate this truly iconic moment I dug in the archives and pulled out an interview with Dan Madsen, which a few years later I am still fascinated by. There are not many people who have contributed to Star Wars fandom as much as Dan, his passion for Star Wars and hard work laid the foundation for this generation's Star Wars fandom. His stories about running the Lucasfilm Fan Club in the 80's and 90's, the Star Wars Insider, exclusive fan club Star Wars figures, organizing Star Wars Celebration I in 1999, meeting George Lucas, secret knocks on doors inside Skywalker Ranch, being an extra in Episode I, watching George Lucas cut the Episode I trailer, and the excitement inside Lucasfilm before Episode I was released, all those stories are truly exciting and not to be missed! Listen now and subscribe please!
