From the distant future, it's Luke Skywalker!  This one is based on the novels from the far-flung future of a galaxy far, far away where Chewbacca is dead and everybody's got kids.  How did this figure turn out?  Read on!

Fresh from the newspaper strips, the Blackhole Stormtrooper finally got a Hasbro action figure last year.  Sort of.  In name only, at least-- missing are the white/silver lenses, but at least it's black.  Oh wait, it's really dark blue?  Hunh.  Well, read on!

It's new!  Major Mianda was shown to not be a clone in the trading card game a few years ago, but this figure has the traditional clone head.  Ah well.  Is it good, or at least different enough to be interesting?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's R2-D2! This is the one based on the R4-G9 mold and, depending on where you lived, was in a hard-to-get Battle Pack with Luke, C-3PO, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.  Should you get them?  Read on!

Hey, it's another Clone Trooper!  This one comes from the Turbo Tank Support Squad, and has a unique cannon and shoulder design.  Oh, and you get two in a box.  Should you snag a few to outfit your Turbo Tank?  I think so, but go ahead and read on!

This particular ARC Trooper has yellow markings, and came with Master Sev.  Who's Master Sev? Why, he's the Jedi that this ARC Trooper killed in the comics.  Is it worth picking up this unique warrior?  Read on!

I know what you want.  Major Panno probably isn't it, but as a figure he's quite good.  The level of detail is excellent, there's a little pouch on his cloak, and it's a nice sculpt too.  So if you get him, now you've got two members of his species in the modern line-- and he's the best!  Read on!

There's never a shortage of Clone Trooper toys today, but back from 2002 and 2005 these warriors were far and few between-- which is why Entertainment Earth had these exclusive action figure packs.  How is this unique battle damaged variant?  Read on!

What's the best way to come down from Toy Fair? Let's look at something old. The Han Solo with gunner station wasn't a big seller.  It even got dumped in the Big Clearance of 2000.  Was it even neat for its time?  Read on!

It's almost dirty!  The first-ever Labria action figure has since been repainted, but there's no denying the intrigue around a first-release.  Or rather, there wouldn't be if there weren't thousands of the things.  Is it any good?  Read on!

This Boba Fett looks a lot like the 2007 Animated Debut version, but it isn't.  Well, it's close-- it was supposed to be redecorated, but Hasbro gave this one an accessory transplant.  Worth a look?  Read on!

Back in 1999 and 2000, Hasbro really cranked out a lot of Jar Jar Binks figures.  Some had great head sculpts, some... well, some were like this.  He looks bored, doesn't have jointed legs, and the paint is basically OK.  Should you bother?  Read on!

This Saga Legends Sandtrooper is one of my favorites.  It's a good mold with a great paint wipe, which resulted in a stunning figure which people actually still want today.  (Unreal, I know.)  You should get one-- so read on!

So hey, it's Warok, in theory.  It looks a little like the vintage 1980s action figure, although the coloring is different from what we saw on the old Kenner cardback.  It seems like, for now, this is probably the only modern Warok we'll get-- is he worth it?  Read on!

Hasbro loves upgrades, and this Obi-Wan Kenobi takes a good figure and makes it even better by adding cloth robes plus jointed knees and ankles.  Packaged with your choice of vehicles, it's a great, great figure you really need to get for piloting purposes.  Read on!
