He had to come up eventually!  Jabba the Hutt  was the most sought-after exclusive of late summer 2010, and today?  Half price.  Life just isn't fair, but even if you paid full price for this guy, I expect you'll like it.  Want to see more?  Read on!

While we just got a pretty nice vintage version of this figure, it's worth noting that this Super Battle Droid has ball-jointed ankles.  And this one came from last year, too!  Should you track down this Target exclusive?  Read on!

When the Clone Wars movie first hit fans asked when they could expect a Jungle Camo ARF Trooper. Well, not exactly-- they asked where they could buy those cool scouts, but this is what they turned out to be.  You should get two-- not one, but two.  Read on!

Hey kids, it's the new Zam Wesell!  This one has two heads, two scarves, two guns, and, presumably, a large boat in which to transport them.  How is she?  Read on!

Today in why-are-they-using-leafblowers-outside (and Figure of the Day) is the Commando Droid!  This is the first, basic carded release from 2009.  He folds up real small and has exceptional articulation.  You should buy a few-- read on!

From 2009 (not the 2010 release) it's Luke Skywalker!  This was another attempt at Death Star II Jedi Luke which, it seems, has been historically tough to do well.  (Hasbro more or less nailed it in 2010.)  So how is this one?  Read on!

This figure was the first "new" body type, released in early 2010.  Clone Commander Stone has no ankles, but he does have a distinctive sculpt with no ankles. How interesting!  Should you pick this one up, given the chance?  Read on!

Hey, it's another Obi-Wan Kenobi!  From 2005 through 2008, Hasbro did a lot of mixing-and-matching to create slightly different versions of the Phantom Menace costume.  Is this one any good?  Read on!

There have been a few flavors of the Geonosian Warrior, this one came with the boxed set of Delta Squad a few years ago.  He has a big gun and purple wings-- oh, and some clones you might want.  Is he worth picking up in his own right?  Read on!

It looks like a soda can and is named the Retail Droid, or LR-57 Combat Droid.  Ridiculous, or awesome?  I'd say this release is a little of each, and is worth snagging as part of a pretty good Battle Pack.  Read on!

From the future of Star Wars comes Sigel Dare, an Imperial Knight that barely squeaked out with an action figure release before the comic packs went away.  Is she any good?  Read on!

It's Carnor Jax in training gear!  Note the blue outfit, recycled Clone trainee legs, and nifty logo on his back.  Should you pick up this guardsman-to-be?  Read on!

The second (and much improved) animated Magnaguard is pretty fantastic-- not as good as the Vintage one, but still exquisite.  It's lanky and chunky, has some great gear, and an excellent sculpt.  Read on!

Back before we called them "soft goods" Kenner enlisted its girls division to make this great Princess Leia Organa figure in an all-cloth white dress.  Wow!  For once, articulation wasn't restricted by the outfit.  Should you get one today?  Well, maybe.  Read on!

This Lando Calrissian redeco is notable for being bad-- actually, one of Hasbro's worst.  Target sold a big Battle Pack with this figure, which was pretty bad, and a  Luke redeco that's even worse.  Why so awful?   Read on!
