What would C-3PO look like if he had a torso storage bin and a laser finger? Probably a lot like I-5YQ here, a Wal-Mart exclusive from about a year ago. The figure combines new parts with the limbs from 4-LOM, and the end result is a pretty distinctive looking robot. Do you need one? Read on!

As Neil Hamburger might say, "Here's one you'll like." The Mandalorian Warrior is a 2010 release from a new Battle Pack. This one is the "enhanced" one with special gauntlets and a firing rocket pack. What's not to like? It's fantastic. Get one. And read on!
A new version is coming, but this R2-D2 Bartender comes straight from 2004. At the time, this was an above-average figure with a good amount of gear, and from the look of things the new version Hasbro has in the works is way better. But is the original good enough? Read on!

If there's one constant in the universe it's that you never know what you might get from a General Grievous action figure. This one is pretty solid-- huge feet, swappable arms, and a nice sculpt ensure he doesn't fall to pieces or melt on you, but his legs could misshapen with time.
