Earlier this afternoon at STAR WARS Celebration V in Orlando, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart sat down for a one-hour interview with STAR WARS creator George Lucas in what was billed “The Main Event.” Hasbro is proud and honored to create a special gift for Stewart, which Lucas presented to him during the event – a one of a kind (NOT FOR SALE) 3.75-inch Jon Stewart Stormtrooper action figure!
We've had Obi-Wan Kenobi, yesterday was General Grievous, and today it's Anakin Skywalker! This is the one that may have a running change to "Darth Vader" on the nameplate, so you may as well get this special version if you're here. And if you aren't? Well, you're dead to me.

I live-tweeted the panel, but if you missed it, here are my posts in reverse order-- included are highlights from the slides as well as commentary. Big news: 3-Packs 3-Pack, Kohl's Galactic Heroes AT-ST, Vintage AOTC wave! It's messy.
On sale at Celebration V-- with practically no line at all-- is a two-pack with Fixer and Camie Marstrap. This is a great set-- the comic is nice, but the fact that you're getting action figures of a legendary scene you've likely never seen is pretty amazing. She's well-done too, so read on!
Mickey Gunslinger finds the new Deluxe Obi-Wan Kenobi with BARC Speeder and Mandalorian Speeder with Mandalorian Warrior for $16.97 each at the Super Wal-Mart in Scottsdale, AZ. Happy Hunting!
On sale now-- I just saw the line, so I can confirm this-- is Zuckuss, or 4-LOM in Kenner colors. I love this figure-- the paint job is delightfully retro and the gag naming is delightful. You do need it. Read on!
Our trusty hunter, Mickey Gunslinger, finds the new TRU Legacy of the Darkside 2 packs in Chandler, AZ, except for the Grievous set, which looks to be the popular one based on the re-release of the pre-Cyborg Grievous. The other two sets include Anakin/Vader and Boba Fett. Pricepoint is $17.99 each. Happy hunting and please report those finds!
What a difference a year makes! In 2009, this was one of the hottest topics and most-debated issues, because Captain Typho was really hard to get. Now? Well, you're probably more concerned with Celebration V than how amazing this figure is, complete with crazy gear and amazing detail. Show some respect-- read on!
So here's the thing, we're literally HOURS (I'm counting them) from Celebration V in Orlando, FL. and friends keep asking me what is the must-have Celebration V exclusive, and, while I'd LOVE a Wampa Rug/Tauntaun Sleeping Bag — which I'd have to use if I brought them home (I'd take pictures of my exile) I know in my bones that the 4-LOM/Zuckuss Retro-Vintage Mix-Up Combo by Hasbro is the one thing I cannot live without.
