When Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight/Endor Capture was released in 2010, we thought he was the epitome of Luke action figureness. The end all. The template.
Way back in 1995, this Han Solo may have been one of the first new figures you bought. He was packed heavily, and tended to stick around. We've had dozens of Han figures since then, so how does this one stack up? Read on!
We lacked the visual aid due to Hasbro deciding not to release the Toy Fair Star Wars presentation to the collecting sites, but thanks to POTF2.com, we can now view the slide showing the upcoming Bespin Battle and Duel On Naboo Battle Packs.
While this new Movie Heroes Jar Jar Binks isn't perfect-- we already know a new one is coming after him-- it's still fun and a refreshing take on a character we haven't seen much of lately. Should you get it? Read on!
There are a lot of Wedge Antilles figures out there, and this one is-- in some respects-- one of the best. It was packaged with an X-wing at Target a few years ago, and it's taller than the Vintage one which will be reissued shortly.
Another Clone Trooper! New sculpts aren't too common, but this is a new one. Is it great? Does it need some work? Read on, and vote in the new poll about the second wave of Star Wars Movie Heroes figures too!

Lackluster in that it didn’t quite meet the promise of 2010, where The Vintage Collection was launched with such alacrity and The Clone Wars line churning out great episodes and figures. Last year, we had distribution issues, waves of figures that were held back, and even other waves that were found on discount pegs at TJ Maxx before you even found them at a Target.
So, Clone Commander Jet. I know what you want to read is commentary on Toy Fair, but, as a member of the toy industry, I'm in meetings and trying to figure out how to cram a pile of paperwork into a carry-on bag with my dirty socks. I'll try to write something on the plane or as soon as I can get sme decent time to collect my notes. This trooper was delayed, and features a unique accessory.
We've posted a couple of more videos from the Hasbro showroom featuring more zoom close up shots of the fabulous new Vintage Collection figures from the Toy Fair 2012 Collector Media Event. Enjoy!
There's more on the way for 2012 including a new Pilots Battle Pack with Porkins and Tiree and an Ewoks set with Kneesa and Teebo courtesy of POTF2.com. We like the nod to the animated series with the Ewoks set but did Porkins go on a Slim Fast diet?.
