ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The force was strong for Star Wars action figures. Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and R2-D2 join the centuries-old game of dominoes in the National Toy Hall of Fame in Rochester.

The action figures and dominoes were inducted today.

A committee chose two toys from 12 finalists that included favorites such as Lite-Brite, Clue, the Magic 8 Ball and Twister.

So far, 49 toys have made it into the National Toy Hall of Fame.
