When first revealed to the public in 1999, another, better R2-D2 was shown around the same time. As such, this one didn't get as much heat, especially after we all found out his scene was deleted-- the booster rockets took on a new form in the sequels. Ah well. But is it neat? Read on!
One of the most likable critters from Jabba's Palace is the cackling puppet Salacious Crumb. He's a jerk. What's not to love? The 2010 release was a repaint of the 2007 release, hardly essential were it not for the fact it came with a new Jabba and Oola. So how is he different? Read on!
Ad: New from Funko, the Star Wars Wacky Wisecracks are coming! 6 unique figures with stylized sculpting and wacky sayings. Check out the Darth Vader Galaxy's #1 Father Figure and the swell Yoda Man Figure, plus more!
It's no secret, I love Ewoks. I think the fact that a lot of collectors hate them makes me like them even more. I was particularly jazzed to get the 2009 update of Paploo which, while I don't love as much as the 1984 original, I still like bunches. Is he worth your while? Read on!
It's the Evo Trooper, repainted and camo'd up for 2010! This figure was a Toys R Us exclusive and now... well, maybe you got one. If not, it's probably not there any more. Is this repaint worth it? Read on!
It's not superbly common that we get a character like Anakin Skywalker in a disguise like this Naboo Pilot uniform without a regular Naboo Pilot coming out first-- but hey, here we are! It's a neat figure with a neat ship. Are you excited? Should you be? Read on!

Will Hasbro ever make a Z-95 Headhunter? Don't get your hopes up. What do you do when your mail-away figures don't show up? Complain, of course! And playsets again? Geez, is that all you people want to ask about? Read on!
Continuing their ongoing and proud tradition, Gente Giant posted the Comic-Con Exclusive 2011 McQuarrie Concept Snowtrooper Bust! It looks a lot like the picture. Pre-orders are open for guild members, and the rest of us poor schmucks get to wait and cross our fingers. Read more.
If you've been enjoying Hasbro's Kenner-style Special Action Figure Set 3-packs at Target, the guys at LightGeschindigKeit.de have fully-packaged shots of more of them-- with no new figures and a few decent repacks. As always, figures are from Star Wars and Empire. Read on!
Some like it Hoth, like this Rebel Trooper variant from last year! It's a Target exclusive, and pretty slick. It's similar to the 2009 carded release, save for the hair color. Should you get it? Read on!
Last year when Hasbro released the Spacetrooper, it had shoulder pads, a jetpack, and a droid bit. The droid bit is gone, and now that he's shipping from Hasbro in Saga Legends packaging, he's got a new (to him) gun. (The ammo thing isn't on the side like a Stormtrooper gun, rather it appears similar to a redeco of Wioslea's weapon.) Click through for bigger pics.
One of Jabba's dancers, this Rystall figure has been readily available online throughout the 2000s, cheaply, and has been blown out and later reissued as a Wal-Mart exclusive. In short: she's very very cheap. Should you get one? Read on!
