Another shipment of these exclusive figures showed up, so it's time to showcase/plug another one with Deliah Blue, the Zeltron lady from the Legacy comic series.  How is this red-skinned space babe?  Read on!

Hey, it's a Bonus Pit Droid!  Back in 2001, these thinks were basically the bigfoot of action figures-- you've never seen them, and you never will.  In 2007, Hasbro reissued them and now you can get them cheap-- that's life!   So is it worth getting these legends?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's BG-J38, another one of Jabba's gambling companions!  Basically.  This Return of the Jedi robot was rarely seen in the movie, and also rarely seen at retail.  Is it worth putting one together?  Read on!

Just how many different Battle Droid figures can Hasbro give us?  TONS.   This one uses the new body mold, but paints it differently giving you yet another unique configuration of the ubiquitous robots.   Any good?  Yes.  Read on!

The latest version of Padme to make the rounds on a basic card was this 2009 Queen Amidala from the Legacy range.  It's not bad-- she can't sit, but she looks pretty great!  Read on!

Hey kids, it's the new Clone Trooper figure which, oddly, is actually somewhat easy to find!  He's got more articulation than ever, and comes on a nice vintage cardback.  So how many can I put you down for?  Read on!

That's right, you heard right-- another Clone Trooper, this time a Target-specific version with a unique design on only one shoulder.  I'm assuming it's a different rank or something.  Are they any good?  You get two in a box, so read on!

He was in the original Star Wars in the background, and now he gets to talk and be annoyed by Anakin Skywalker.  Admiral Yularen was a slow seller in 2009, but now he's gone and you can't have one.  Too bad.  Should you be upset?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's the 7th Legion Clone Trooper!  Based on a concept armor, this spotted clone has a removable helmet (which was a novelty on  basic carded figures in 2007) and a lot of articulation.  How many does your army need?  Read on!

Hey, do you know what's awesome?  Anakin Skywalker in his space suit.   It's a super-articulated figure with a fish bowl.  This is awesome-- seriously, it's fantastic and goofy and I love it.  You should own one.  Read on.

Offered before many of you were born, Rocket Firing Boba Fett is something of a holy grail, a legend not just in Star Wars, but in the world of toy collecting in general.  The 2010 mail-in version has been changed significantly from the original design, meaning nobody should be able to pass this off as an original.  Is this a pro, or a con?  Read on!

Hasbro sure likes to make barely-different troopers, like this Scout Trooper from 2007. Hasbro put out a big exclusive boxed set at Target and painted each Biker Scout differently-- just to keep you busy.  (Or to make your dioramas better, perhaps.) Either way, how is it? Excellent. Read on, dudes!

It's the first-ever modern-era Wicket which, at nearly 12 years old, is a lot less modern.  This was one of the first two modern Ewoks, setting the bar for the slow drip to follow for the next few years.  He was just upgraded, but how does the original stack up?  Read on!

Ever since 21 used the name of Count Dooku as a euphemism for an act in the bathroom, fans have wondered if we'll get a better version of the figure.  OK, that's not at all true, but this is indeed a better version of Christopher Lee.  Should you run out and buy him at Target right now?  Read on!

Since the 1970s, Boba Fett  has been a major presence in fan imaginations and toy boxes.  This younger incarnation of the character has stunning articulation, good accessories, and, sadly, no helmet.  It's a big improvement over the other prequel-inspired figure, but should you get him?  Read on!
