Hasbro has sent word of changes being made to the Star Wars brand team including news that designer Mark Boudreaux will be retiring. For those not familiar, Mark has been working on Star Wars toys since the Kenner days. From those of us here at JI, we thank Mark for all his years working on the line and giving us many great toys including the original Kenner and the BMF Millennium Falcon.




Here is a breakdown of all the changes being made to the team.

- After 43 fantastic years creating some of the most iconic Star Wars toys and vehicles Mark Boudreaux will be retiring. His work has had a tangible impact on the Star Wars universe and been formative in creating the Hasbro Star Wars brand we know today.
