Hey kids, it's the super-cool Rohlan Dyre figure! He has a lot of gear, a lot of armor, and a lot of not being in a store near you.  Should you get this Mandalorian?  Read on!

One of the fascinating things about this hobby is that, at times, Hasbro will pluck an obscure movie character from the film and drop it in the toy aisles, like General McQuarrie here. Fans weren't asking for him, but we got him-- and he's neat!  Read on!

One of the best repaints out if Hasbro's Original Trilogy Collection line were the Jawas.  The 1997 2-pack got a fresh coat of paint in 2004, and it looked fantastic.  The packaging was great, too!  Does it hold up to more modern sculpts?  Read on!

Don't feel blue, because Aayla Secura is here!  She's about as good as it gets for movie versions of the character... the cartoon one is probably the best so far, though.  So how about this one from 2005?  Read on!

It's R5-P9!  After years of waiting, you can finally get Ekelarc Yong's Astromech Droid.  Who the hell is Ekelarc Yong?  Well, that's the big question.  But here's his robot!  Aren't you excited?  Probably not, but it's a nice looking robot.  Read on!

While I listen to this awesome cover of "Tricky" as done by Knodel, you can read about the Battle Droid Commander.  It has some of the best deco ever applied to this mold, but it's still the same friggin' mold for the bazillionth time.  Is it worth it?  Read on!

Summer is basically here, so let's look at the hottest figure of 2003 with the Clone Trooper.  This was the one that basically spawned everything about what's right and wrong with the figures today-- lots of articulation, but he was also really tough to get.  Read on!

While this Battle Droid is labeled a driver for the AAT, it looks like he's ready for jungle combat.  It's basically the same mold you've been used to, but different.  Is it worth getting?  Read on!

Dating back from 2003, which was the last time we really saw buttons as a physical sculpted piece on most of our 3 3/4-inch figures, this Han Solo had a unique pose and a lot of gear-- and multiple repaints!  Should you grab one?  Read on!

Here's one for the shorties.  And by that, I mean the Tusken Raider Child is short.  This tiny-- but still articulated-- figure came packaged with his mom for just five bucks in 2002, which, even for the time, was quite the bargain. Good luck on finding that today!  Read on for more on this one.

What would Boba Fett look like with his helmet off?  A lot like Jeremoch Colton, actually.  This figure was available briefly in 2009 and then went away-- did you get one?  If not, read on!

Hey kids, it's ARF Trooper Waxer, a Target-exclusive companion piece to Boil and his AT-RT! It has great deco and a companion figure-- so should you get it before he dries up?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's Grizz Frix!  Few pilots get a lot of fan requests, but after Wedge it seemed Grizz got a little attention from fans, and earlier this year we got him in stores.  Is he worth it?  Read on!

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!
