Hobby Archive-2005

Year In Review

2005 was a huge year in the hobby. Not only did it see Celebration 3, but also the release of Revenge of the Sith. Everywhere they turned, collectors were confronted with a variety of new Star Wars collectibles. From the covers of magazines to the cereal aisle, Star Wars was everywhere. There was an element of sadness too however, as collectors looked at an uncertain future. Very much like what had happened two decades before, collectors would have to learn to live without the support of new films. Just what would the future hold for the hobby?
