It's R5-P9! After years of waiting, you can finally get Ekelarc Yong's Astromech Droid. Who the hell is Ekelarc Yong? Well, that's the big question. But here's his robot! Aren't you excited? Probably not, but it's a nice looking robot. Read on!
While I listen to this awesome cover of "Tricky" as done by Knodel, you can read about the Battle Droid Commander. It has some of the best deco ever applied to this mold, but it's still the same friggin' mold for the bazillionth time. Is it worth it? Read on!
You thought that all you had to do was to track down one of the presently extremely scarce just-released Wedge Antilles figures? Well, you're wrong. Hasbro now has a package variant to be on the watch for, and you can read more about Hasbro salting your wounds at Yakface.com for the full story.

If you have Ross stores in your area, it may be worth your while to check out their toy sections. The until-just-recently online exclusive Plourr Ilo and Dlrr Nepp Comic Pack has been showing up at the clothing discounter for about $5.99-- a great price for 2 pilot figures! Good hunting.
We have good news and bad news. The good news? Sandtroopers.com revealed the all-white prototype armor Boba Fett figure in full, both carded and loose. The bad news?
