At the Star Wars Disney Store event, one of the better value items was a trio of what they refer to as Fig Sets. There are no fruity treats included as the name may imply, but rather six, roughly three-inch figures in a decent box for a pretty low price.
So far we only got a glimpse at sets from the original three movies, and it seems to be a stunning start. Read on for more!

Disney gave us a hands-on heavily embargoed look at a new Star Wars app last week called Star Wars Journeys: The Phantom Menace. While sort of a neat throwback - it's an iOS take on the classic Buena Vista storybook + record sets some of us had in kids mashed up with trivia and a video game - it's also aimed at people much shorter and younger than the average reader of sites like this one.
Featuring lush art and amazing voiceover work by James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi and others on The Clone Wars), it's $6.99 and will be on the iTunes store roughly nowish.
