Got a Fry's Electronics nearby? They got some Hasbro surprises in this past week-- the 2009 edition of the Stormtrooper Commander and the 2008 Clone Trooper Senate Security are showing up, in star cases, at the chain for about $13. Good hunting!
In light of new toys shipping, the Blu-Ray bonanza, and everything else going on which may or may not involve a certain blonde star's backside on a cell phone, you no doubt forgot that the two-part season premiere of The Clone Wars aired on Cartoon Network earlier tonight.
The Star Wars Blu-Ray hit stores (and mailboxes) today, and as expected the complete Star Wars Holiday Special animated segment is included. If you ever wanted to see what was basically a backdoor pilot for Droids, it's here!

If all that weren't enough, the very charming LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace TV special is coming to home video at Wal-Mart this week.

Just click here to pre-order, or wait to hit up Wal-Mart this weekend when you get your 2 gallon pickle jar, rubber gloves, AAA batteries, and/or sack of peanut M&Ms.
