Supposedly (depending on the reports) between August and some time this fall, we're going to have access to a $19.99 white "prototype" 6-inch Boba Fett. A mail-in version of this costume was made for the 3 3/4-inch scale a couple of years ago, so now we'll have access to a bigger version of this character. Somehow, pre-orders will start at Comic-Con in a few weeks.
If you're looking for a figure that aspires to give you 1980 engineering with 2014 prices and sculpting, Yoda is it! The new The Black Series 3 3/4-inch figure has a cane, flute, coat, belt, and backpack while somehow only having 5 points of articulation at about $11. It fits in his backpack just fine, and the jacket needs some fidgeting - but is it good otherwise? Read on!
And we're back! This new Luke Skywalker figure is shipping now if you ordered online somewhere like our sponsors at Entertainment Earth. It has more articulation than nearly any other Star Wars figure at this size, and has quite the accessory pool. It even looks better than some of the early promo images - but is it worth tracking down during the summer heat? Read on!
Toys R Us has started to announce their Comic-Con Exclusives for San Diego! As with previous years, these will be sold at booth #2343 - Entertainment Earth.

Let's finish up the second wave of The Black Series with Princess Leia (Slave Outfit), a 6-inch figure that asks the question "so when do we get Jabba?" She's short, but so is Carrie Fisher. Is this truly the best Hasbro can do, or just their first attempt? Read on!
