It was sixteen years ago today – May 12, 1999 – that tickets for STAR WARS EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE went on-sale. From that film came a number of new characters, one of which was Jedi Master Mace Windu, performed by the always-excellent Samuel L. Jackson. While a number of Windu figures have been produced over the years, the #ForceFridayCountdown highlights the 2013 Saga Legends release today, continuing the road to September 4, 2015 – #ForceFriday – the day on which new Hasbro toys from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS will be released!
I distinctly remember Mace Windu as being released initially under a “Sneak Preview” figure edition, though this Saga Legends version was one of the most recent – and it’s currently on shelves once more as part of the STAR WARS Digital Release Commemorative Edition figure sets, specifically the one labeled EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES.
There’s just 115 Days until Force Friday!
