Is it new? Technically, yes!  This Luke Skywalker takes a 2009 design and retools his belt while adding a new backpack.  And, oddly, it's easier to find than Vintage despite being 1 per case in 1 case. Read on!

This R2-D2 was packed in with the Starspeeder 1000 from Disney and while it's scaled to Hasbro figures, it's not a Hasbro figure.  Is it cool? Sorta! Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 3, 2012
