Kids can also experience modern Marine action in the city with the MARINE FORCES UAV RECON figure, available in September. This group of highly detailed 12-inch figures also includes the Marine Liberators Normandy Pathfinder (available January), and Medal of Honor recipient, Pharmacist’s Mate 1st Class Francis Pierce, a Marine doctor who was cited for his acts of bravery and heroism in WWII battle (available June). Each figure comes with a theme/mission card that ties into the figure’s military role.

(Approximate Retail Price: $14.99; Recommended Age: 5 & Up) G.I. JOE is ready for action again with an all-new battle in VALOR VS. VENOM. The VOICE FX DUKE figure features VOICE FX, an innovative new feature that not only enables the figure to talk and shout commands, but its mouth and facial features realistically come to life at the press of a button. For the first time, kids can control the intensity of their voices and expressions! The VOICE FX feature will also be featured in the figure based on the G.I. JOE team’s new nemesis, VENOMOUS MAXIMUS (Approx. $19.99), and a U.S. Marine Squad Leader (Approx. $19.99) in the realistic military segment.

G.I. JOE: VALOR VS. VENOM DELUXE VEHICLES
(Approximate Retail Price: $ 29.99; Recommended Age: 5 & Up) The battle against the malevolent COBRA forces couldn’t be waged without cool electronic action-loaded vehicles like the NIGHT FORCE GRIZZLY and the THUNDERWING JET. The VALOR VS. VENOM THUNDERWING JET automatically fires 10 missiles and turns on the heat when kids activate the realistic battle sounds and actions like the THUNDERWING JET’s afterburners, which are really binocular lenses that kids can use to hone in on the target and fire! Switch the afterburners to “bomb” mode, look down on target and release two sorties of bombs. Listen for the distinctive electronic sounds – this smart jet knows when it is climbing or descending! Each deluxe vehicle includes a 3-3/4-inch VALOR VS. VENOM pilot figure, comic book, bio card profiles and back story information. Available in August.
Ever since the classic Star Wars trilogy burst onto the screen in 1977, a new generation of movie and toy fans has continued the tradition of celebrating the past, present and future of the Star Wars universe. In 2004, Hasbro builds on the tradition with the Original Trilogy Collection of authentically detailed figures, vehicles and lightsabers, this time celebrating Lucasfilm’s fall release of the Star Wars Trilogy on DVD.
Hasbro’s Original Trilogy Collection will recapture the magic of the first three Star Wars film releases from the late 70s and early 80s for a new generation of kids, bringing back the memorable black-and-silver retro package look and collectible new versions of the earliest Star Wars toys. In addition to updated action figure versions of the most favorite characters from the first three films, Hasbro is bringing back one of the most legendary spaceships in the galaxy -- available for the first time since 1996 will be the Millennium Falcon.
Hasbro Star Wars lightsabers defined the role-play category and remain among the best-selling Star Wars items. The crash-and-bash fun continues in 2004 with several basic and electronic lightsabers based on both Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and the Star Wars Trilogy.
Following is Hasbro’s line-up of Star Wars products in 2004 (all Hasbro Star Wars products are recommended for ages 4+, unless otherwise noted):
MILLENNIUM FALCON VEHICLE (Approximate retail price: $59.99) Make the jump into hyperspace with the coolest starship of all time! The Millennium Falcon has flown in the biggest battles and most exciting adventures the galaxy has ever known. Take control of this legendary ship to combat DARTH VADER’S TIE FIGHTER, help defeat the Empire and fight alongside the heroes of the Rebellion. Available for the first time since 1996, the Millennium Falcon has been upgraded with new light-up tail lights that change color based on the flying mode, new hyperdrive sounds and lights, and authentic engine start-up and cruise sounds! It also features a new front missile, turbo “laser” cannon sounds and lights, working headlights for the toughest space battles, and it fits lots of figures. Availability is the fall.
STAR WARS BASIC FIGURES (Approximate Retail Price: $4.99) The focus of the basic figure collection will be the favorite characters from the Star Wars Trilogy DVD collection, including R2-D2, Han Solo, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Princess Leia and three versions of Luke Skywalker, among others.
ELECTRONIC LIGHTSABERS (Approximate retail price: $19.99) The Force is strong with five authentic ELECTRONIC LIGHTSABERS of the key Star Wars heroes and villains. Each lightsaber has a light-up extendable blade and authentic movie sounds for all the classic crash-and-bash action and allows kids to play out their own Star Wars fantasies. Highlights include two lightsabers as part of the Original Trilogy Collection in the fall, featuring handle designs based on the lightsabers of LUKE SKYWALKER and DARTH VADER. The Original Trilogy Collection will be available in the fall; all other electronic lightsabers are available now.
BASIC LIGHTSABERS (Approximate retail price: $6.99) For more Jedi Knight lightsaber action, the original BASIC LIGHTSABER is available in four colors (red, blue, green and purple), each with an extendable blade and two different handle styles.

VINTAGE 3-3/4 and 12-INCH FIGURES (Approximate retail price: $9.99 & $29.99) Hasbro captures the excitement of the original Star Wars action figure line with its vintage figure collection that includes modern versions of popular characters presented in packaging featuring the original artwork from Kenner’s Star Wars line.

The 12-inch line will include three figures – Luke Skywalker, a Stormtrooper and Boba Fett.

Following yet another year of soaring popularity as seen by double-digits sales increases, Hasbro's TRANSFORMERS brand celebrates its 20th year in 2004 as the legendary kid and collector favorite also known as ROBOTS IN DISGUISE. From Hasbro's action figures to the Cartoon Network animated series, Dreamwave comic books and the upcoming Atari video game, a new generation of kids have discovered the thrills of the TRANSFORMERS saga.
This year Hasbro will continue to provide kids with plenty of unique new TRANSFORMERS action figure play, delivering another riveting theme called TRANSFORMERS ENERGON. The celebration continues with a new segment of authentic licensed vehicles called TRANSFORMERS ALTERNATORS that change from well-known car brands into cool TRANSFORMERS robots. Long-time fans and kids can continue to look for new releases from the TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE line, a collection of the best TRANSFORMERS toys from years past. Finally, as a crowning touch for 2004, Hasbro will introduce a 20th Anniversary special version of the heroic OPTIMUS PRIME robot as a fan-requested tribute to the original 1984 toy.
TRANSFORMERS ENERGON is the next installment of the legendary storyline of the AUTOBOTS versus the DECEPTICONS. Though disabled at the end of TRANSFORMERS ARMADA: THE UNICRON BATTLES, UNICRON, one of the most evil TRANSFORMERS characters ever, continues his quest to rule the world. In this new story, UNICRON has set his sights on stealing Earth’s energon -- the one energy source that will bring him back to power. But OPTIMUS PRIME intends to stop this evil plot before UNICRON can reactivate. OPTIMUS PRIME utilizes the ‘SPARK OF COMBINATION’ to mobilize his small AUTOBOT force to combine, or POWERLINX, to create larger, more powerful robots. But the threat of the DECEPTICON is great this time. OPTIMUS PRIME will need the power and strength of the largest AUTOBOT robot yet, OMEGA SUPREME, in order to stop this evil plot. Will the AUTOBOT forces in their new POWERLINX combinations be enough to stop the DECEPTICONS in their quest to revive UNICRON?
Kids can combine TRANSFORMERS ENERGON toys sold by retailers at many different price points to create an almost limitless number of possibilities. In January, kids can tune into the new TRANSFORMERS ENERGON program on Cartoon Network.
TRANSFORMERS ENERGON OMEGA SUPREME FIGURE (Approximate Retail Price: $49.99) As the AUTOBOTS battle UNICRON, the OMEGA SUPREME character is the largest AUTOBOT robot and the ultimate combiner in the quest for energon. The figure stands at an incredible 16 inches in robot mode and it is actually two vehicles – and awesome construction crane and a space battleship -- that combine to make a super robot or train. A third attachment becomes the head in the robot mode. Like UNICRON, OMEGA SUPREME is action-packed with electronic lights and sound, additional mechanized features, firing projectiles and mini-con posts. OMEGA SUPREME can also combine with the new OPTIMUS PRIME figure for even bigger TRANSFORMERS ENERGON play. OMEGA SUPREME will be ready to battle this fall.
TRANSFORMERS ENERGON ULTRA FIGURE ASSORTMENT (Approximate Retail Price: $24.99) The TRANSFORMERS ENERGON ultra figures feature triple-change combining action and the ability to draw on either ”HYPER POWER” or the ‘SPARK OF COMBINATION” for the ultimate TRANSFORMERS ENERGON battles. Each Ultra figure employs projectiles and electronic sound to aid in the quest for the energon energy source. LANDMINE is an AUTOBOT EARTHMOVER that first combines to form a large construction vehicle. As with other AUTOBOTS in the TRANSFORMERS ENERGON line, LANDMINE changes from vehicle to robot with a gunner station. LANDMINE’S pieces combine using the ‘SPARK OF COMBINATION” for a powerful POWERLINX robot or an even larger vehicle. BULKHEAD, another triple-change Ultra figure, is an AUTOBOT helicopter that has POWERLINX capability and employs sound and projectiles in the battle against the DECEPTICONS for control of the energon. The Ultra assortment also includes SCORPONOK, and ENERGON TIDAL WAVE.
TRANSFORMERS ENERGON SUPER OPTIMUS PRIME (Approximate Retail Price: $39.99) The TRANSFORMERS ENERGON version of the legendary hero OPTIMUS PRIME features the classic robot that converts to a truck cab, but the trailer converts to an energon tower, which is a key element in the new TRANSFORMERS theme for 2004. Plus, each vehicle in the TRANSFORMERS mobile force can POWERLINX with OPTIMUS PRIME as an arm or leg, and can unlock sound effects! The mobile force vehicles can be stored in the OPTIMUS PRIME figure’s trailer mode.
TRANSFORMERS ALTERNATORS (Approximate Retail Price: $19.99) The feel of the TRANSFORMERS G1 line is back with unparalleled articulation in the all-new TRANSFORMERS ALTERNATORS line. Each robot changes into an authentic licensed car that is highly detailed and realistic. The 1:24 scale figure even has realistic tires and adjustable seats for an incomparable authenticity! These racers will be revving up their engines and heading to the aisle in spring 2004. The first models available will be the SUBARU IMPREZA WRC, DODGE VIPER SRT-10, and the JEEP WRANGLER.
TRANSFORMERS 20th ANNIVERSARY OPTIMUS PRIME (Approximate Retail Price: $79.99 – 89.99) The TRANSFORMERS 20th ANNIVERSARY OPTIMUS PRIME is a fitting tribute to the ultimate defender of Cyberton with bigger and better features than ever! This all-new figure features die cast parts, rubber tires, and spring-loaded suspension. This powerful hero boats unique accessories including data-com interface screens on each arm, an ENERGON AXE, Ion Blaster, MEGATRON style weapon and a windshield that opens to reveal a light up Matrix Annex. This deluxe collectible version of the AUTOBOT leader has detailed points of articulation and easily converts into the classic semi-truck. The product will be available beginning this Spring.

The world of action figures has taken an evolutionary step forward with XEVOZ™, a new line of figures from Hasbro (NYSE: HAS) that enables kids to build, customize and then battle, within a dynamic, multi-level game. XEVOZ parts are totally interchangeable and offer millions of combinations, so kids can xevolve their figures into their most powerful warriors imaginable. The XEVOZ battling figure system, designed for boys 6+ years, is due from Hasbro in early 2004.
“XEVOZ is a totally unique convergence of action figures and gaming, that is unlike anything on the market today,” explained Deron Ellis, Vice President of Boys Marketing for Hasbro. “Hasbro created the action figure category and XEVOZ takes action figures to the next level, drawing on our expertise in action figures and game design to deliver exactly what boys want.”
Tons of Combinations
The colorful, poseable XEVOZ figures can be configured into millions of combinations, each with its own special powers and abilities, thanks to the interchangeable ball and socket system. Every XEVOZ kit contains a variety of parts that ‘snap’ together for easy assembly. Players xevolve figures by mixing and matching different parts.
After building their unique XEVOZ warrior, players can use the battle system to take on their friends– rolling the BATTLE HELIX ™ (the game’s unique and re-configurable die) and to demolish their opponent’s figure part by part. Beginning with a basic 2-player game, the XEVOZ battle system offers scaleable game play options, from quick and easy battle to more complex strategic play.
Kids can enhance their XEVOZ play experience at www.xevoz.com. This deep, robust site will feature a “virtual XEVOZ” area where players can build and then battle their own “virtual” character online. The site also allows them to amass extra parts, showcase their creature creations in a public gallery, enter instant-win contests and learn more about the compelling storylines that bring XEVOZ to life.
The XEVOZ Story
All of this great play is wrapped in a compelling story about a small but formidable fighting force known as The Xevolvers - the last hope of a planet plunged into chaos by a powerful technology. Long ago, the Ancients of XEVOZ learned to manipulate their genetic makeup at will with a device called the Evolutionary Accelerator (EV-AC). The EV-AC could change them physically, turning their limbs into tools and weapons of steel, stone, fire and even ice. One of the Ancients – the evil Genok – overthrew the rest and appointed himself ruler. The remaining Ancients formed The Xevolvers to stop Genok and imprison him in a secret impenetrable tomb for eternity. Or so they thought…
XEVOZ action figures will initially be offered in: Basic Battle Kit Assortments ($6.99 ARP), each containing one unassembled figure and additional parts for customization, as well as game pieces and rules; Master Modifier Assortments ($9.99 ARP) that add more powerful game pieces and parts for more battle options; and BATTLE ATTACK™ 2-Packs ($14.99 ARP) containing two unassembled figures and a BATTLE TERRAIN™ game board to take XEVOZ battle to a whole new level. Look for XEVOZ battling figure kits in Toys ’R’ Us, KB Toys, toy specialty and online stores in early 2004.

Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc. is putting a fresh – and fashionable – twist on the Trading Card Game (TCG) genre by introducing the STAR SISTERZ Collectable Charm Game. STAR SISTERZ poses fun dares and crazy challenges to girls, rewarding them with cool, collectable charms.
There are nearly 100 unique charms to wear, collect and trade. The high quality silver charms, each inlaid with a colorful gem, are earned by completing a Dare, Challenge or Big Idea card. For example, girls might be charged with going to the mall with their clothes on inside-out or reading a page from their diary aloud to all of their friends – how embarrassing! And STAR SISTERZ charms and bracelets will shine long after game play is complete; they’re the perfect accessory for any occasion.
“STAR SISTERZ combines two immensely popular tween trends: truth-or-dare style games and charm bracelets,” said Laura Tommervik, brand manager for STAR SISTERZ at Wizards of the Coast. “But STAR SISTERZ is more than a game or fashion accessory. STAR SISTERZ is about creativity and self-expression. STAR SISTERZ enables tween girls to develop interpersonal skills through communication and trust exercises with friends. More importantly, STAR SISTERZ fosters a heightened sense of self as girls discover and define their own unique interests and talents.”
Girls will be able to gather on the web at www.starsisterz.com. The interactive destination web site will feature a complete charm list, a personality profiler, polls, game play information and more.
For girls aged 8 and up, STAR SISTERZ offers three different Theme Packs each containing 4 random charms, 7 random game cards and game rules. Bracelets are sold separately. A Deluxe Box Set is great for sleep-overs and parties as it offers more cards and charms, as well as a re-usable carrying case. STAR SISTERZ will be available at Limited Too stores nationwide on March 1, 2004. Theme Packs have a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $7.99, MSRP for bracelets is $2.99 and MSRP for the Deluxe Box Set is $19.99
