Episode I (1999-2000)
With the release of a new prequel trilogy, Hasbro rolled out a ton of merchandise. There were quite a few items that were proposed and never hit toy shelves. Some made it pretty far down the development process.
The packaging design for this new release features Darth Maul prominently on each package. Early designs revealed an early "Episode I" font.
