Along with the announcement of the end of Wizards of the Coast’s support for the Star Wars game lines, Hasbro has begun promoting a toy giveaway for interested Star Wars Fans. Known as the “Free Figure Giveaway,” commercials aired during Friday night’s episode of The Clone Wars with the details of the sale. Anyone who purchases a recent Star Wars-related Hasbro product may submit their sales receipt to receive three random action figures from the Saga Legends line.
The figures include Darth Maul, Stormtroopers and Clone Troopers, Captain Rex, Anakin and Darth Vader, Rebel pilots and Droids. These figures make a wonderful addition to collections and, more importantly for us, great props for those who play the Roleplaying and Miniatures games.
The items required for purchase are great for Live Action Roleplay in the Star Wars Universe. They are as follows: Star Wars Stormtrooper Blaster, Star Wars Clone Trooper Blaster, Star Wars Clone Commander Blaster, Star Wars General Grievous Blaster, Star Wars Force Action Lightsaber, Star Wars Electronic Lightsaber, Star Wars Duel Action Lightsaber, and Star Wars Captain Rex Electronic Command Helmet.
These items are regularly on sale or discounted at local Shopko stores in Boise in the toy aisles as they do not move quickly and take up quite a bit of commercial space. Nampa readers may want to check out F.Y.E. at the Karcher Mall to pick up the Clone Wars items. Forms for redemption are available on Hasbro's Star Wars Website. This is a great opportunity for local gamers to increase their collections at an excellent price. The Giveaway continues until March 20th, which is the last date by which items must be purchased to obtain the free toys.
