This week: How reliable is action figure grading? The answer... may not surprise you. What's the scoop with Battle Packs? And are we going to expect more classic vehicle updates real soon? Probably not. All this and LEGO ramblings in this week's Q&A!
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.

This 4-LOM is pretty awesome, and a convention exclusive from last year. It takes the modern Zuckuss figure and paints it in vintage Kenner 4-LOM colors. I think it's the best version of the character yet, so read on, and then go get one! Go on, read!
We've read a few reports, most notable from the Yakface.com forums, that the long-delayed AT-ST from Galactic Heroes has arrived! Retail is $34.99. Originally slated as a September Kohl's exclusive last year, the item has been in limbo since showing up in the UK. But now? Toys "R" Us is getting it. Read more at Yakface.com!
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? It doesn't have the grapple hook rocket like the image from Toy Fair's slide show implied. Rather, it's a reworked Animated Boba Fett from 2007. See more on their site.
Ad: New Hasbro Star Wars at Entertainment Earth are up for pre-order now! Dozens of new vehicles, figures, and more are all up for grabs. Listings include the Star Wars Clone Republic Attack Shuttle Vehicle, the Star Wars Clone Wars Republic Artillery Cannon Vehicle, and even the Star Wars Action Figures Vintage Wave 8 Case. Read on for a list of everything!
Arguably the best version yet, this Plo Koon comes packaged with a vehicle and has-- get ready for it-- knee joints! That's what matters here. Should you get this one, even if it's the second or third one in your collection? Read on!
One of the cool things about the Star Tours line was the addition of "cast members" like this Jedi Master. It's just some dude made out of Agen Kolar parts with a new head, making it an ideal theme park exclusive. Should you get one? Read on!
Got a problem with figure hand color? Sure you do. And why aren't we getting more beasts, heaving or otherwise? And why is that big mean bully Hasbro denying you the 1980s-style figures you so richly deserve, aside from taste? All this and more when you read on!
Hey, it's the 2004 Y-Wing Pilot from the Toys "R" Us exclusive Y-Wing Fighter! It can sit just fine, and it's a great figure to put in a vehicle... but it's not very impressive by modern standards. Or the standards of 2004... or 1998. Want to see more? Read on!
Hey kids, it's a Clone Trooper! You love those, especially with wacky graphics on their chests. This one is particularly neat-- so read on!
