It's the first-ever modern-era Wicket which, at nearly 12 years old, is a lot less modern.  This was one of the first two modern Ewoks, setting the bar for the slow drip to follow for the next few years.  He was just upgraded, but how does the original stack up?  Read on!

Ever since 21 used the name of Count Dooku as a euphemism for an act in the bathroom, fans have wondered if we'll get a better version of the figure.  OK, that's not at all true, but this is indeed a better version of Christopher Lee.  Should you run out and buy him at Target right now?  Read on!

Since the 1970s, Boba Fett  has been a major presence in fan imaginations and toy boxes.  This younger incarnation of the character has stunning articulation, good accessories, and, sadly, no helmet.  It's a big improvement over the other prequel-inspired figure, but should you get him?  Read on!

Galen Marek or Starkiller, the Secret Apprentice, or whatever you want to call him has a lot of names, and even more costume changes.  This 2010 release is based on a Jango Fett mold-- and it's pretty great!   Read on to see what you're missing.

Behold, a sign of a figure to come!  Hasbro's Imperial Scanning Crew figures were meant to include a running change with an alternate accessory and different head sculpt.  This didn't happen-- and for all we know, it won't happen.  But how is the original?  Read on!

Have another Clone Commander but this time, from Bantha Squad! Hasbro's creative use of paint and parts-swapping resulted in this nifty character, which we posed on a Playmobil backdrop. That thing's great.  So is the figure.  Read on!

What's red and shot in the heart?  Why, this red Clone Trooper officer!  What a nice figure.  It uses the 2003 body with special deco that, so far, has not returned in the line.  Should you track it down?  Read on!

One of the dangers of toys from video games is the game may not be done before the toys are, so the Secret Apprentice looks nothing like Sam Witwer, really.  (Although it's arguably no more off than most Han figures are from Harrison Ford.)  How does this 2008 release stack up now that the sequel is out?

Behold, the lost Hoth Rebel Trooper of 2009!  This was the variant Hasbro meant to release but through one reason or another, didn't until this year's big Target exclusive gift sets.  Is this head and hat variant worth your hard-earned cashola?  Read on!

Another blast from the past, you simply cannot imagine how excited people were when this, the second-ever unique outfit for Darth Maul hit stores in 1999.  I'm sure you can, however, imagine how much that excitement has faded.  Is this a hidden gem?  Read on!

Today let's look at Palpatine, a figure which has multiple variants, spare parts, and basically just stands there and swings his arm.  Is this a must-buy figure, or should you wait for some super-poseable one in ten years?  Read on!
