It's a...triumph in plastic likeness as Hasbro creates the ultimate Ackbar for the 2010 Vintage Collection. We can't say enough about the sculpt of this figure, and the accompanying control panel accessory would be even that much more fantastic if it actually connects to a command chair that's part of a Rebel command bridge play environment.
Hasbro made a ton of Battle Droid figures since 1999, some better than others. This model was from their cheap era, in which we got two figures for the price of one-- at the time this was a really awesome thing, but today Hasbro gives us two super-articulated figures for the same price. Hooray for the future-- but read on for the past!
One of the better new aliens to come out of the prequels was the freakish Sebulba, and this was the first crack at him as an action figure. It turned out well, but was eclipsed in just a few years with a far superior, larger, and more articulated version. It happens-- but this one comes with his racer! Isn't that worth something?

Hey, it's one of the best Obi-Wan Kenobi action figures you can buy! He's super-articulated and while an improved version was produced, the 2010 release of the figure proves the older one is still basically just fine. Is it time to buy? Read on!
Hasbro has released multiple Commander Bly figures, and most of them-- like this one-- aren't colored like the movie. This wasn't even the first release! So how is this slightly-different but still notable figure? Read on!
Is he named after the dude in the U.N.? Probably. Koffi Arana is seen here in his comic book outfit with red armor and spoileriffic stabbable torso. Now that's pretty swell, ain't it? Should you pick up this 2007, or wait until Mustafar freezes over for a new version? Read on!

Behold, the first Cantina alien you ever saw in Star Wars! Hem Dazon was a head on a stick, and toy companies have been able to make up a costume and a body for this guy. Here's Hasbro's take-- do you like it? Read on to see it!
I just got back from the other coast. Did you miss me? You didn't realize I was gone? Ah well. Here's Goji, our Figure of the Day named for a famous series of Japanese monster movies. Probably Rodan. Is he cool enough to buy? Find him in Clone Wars Season 2 and then read on!
This Clone Trooper is something of a rarity-- white troopers are basically gone from the line, and this one came in a gift set. Is it worth braving the 3 Commando Droids to get this new variant with a different helmet? Read on!
I'm off in the arctic wilds of the Eastern United States this week, so I'm totally qualified to tell you about the Ugnaught, who are experts at operating refridgeration equipment. This is the newest one, which means he's a year old. Exciting? Sure. Read on!
Hasbro's newest Mace Windu is a huge, huge improvement over most of its Jedi figures. It has new ankle joints unlike any other Star Wars figure, he can sit, and basically it all just plain works and holds together nicely. Throw away your old ones and get this new one, kids! Read on!
