Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

If the reports from the floor of Convention VI are correct, then Battle Packs are being replaced in 2013 by a modern revival of the old Kenner "Mini-Rigs" from the early eighties...very small one- or two-man vehicles that were never actually seen on screen but created out of whole cloth in a style where you could sort of imagine them being in the movies but "just off-screen." The new mini-vehicle sets will come with two figures apiece, such as Yoda with starfighter pilot headgear and a Super Battle Droid or a blue-striped Battle Droid Pilot and an Episode I Obi-Wan.

The first peek at the 2013 Mini-Rig line and some of its figures
