You can now have your Separatist commander hard-boiled or deep fried. Hasbro retooled the previous TCW versions and gave him additional articulation (especially in the legs), interchangeable battle damage parts, new head sculpt, but alas, less ambidexterity and fire power. CW10 General Grievous may be the best TCW version yet, but if there's one complaint, it's that his shoulder plates do not stay on and we recommend keeping the rubber bands on the hands because they are not sculpted well enough to grip those sabers.
Serve the public trust. Protect the innocent. Uphold the law. Yes, CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer sorta reminds us of this guy. As with most Clone Wars designed action figures, the sculpt is true to the series. While the limited articulation in the legs holds this figure back from a poseability standpoint, the shield/firing missile launcher combo is a nice touch.
It's a fact: Pit Droid figures are great. In 1999 and 2000, Hasbro really cranked them out with several in the USA and six more being, for the time, temporary exclusives. This one came from a 2-pack sold in North America-- how is it? Read on!
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!
There are not one, not two, but eleven different cases of Vintage Wave 3 action figures from Hasbro. Entertainment Earth has posted them all and the new figures do not include Yoda or Wedge, but there are 7 new figures and 4 repacks. Each mix has 2 of one figure and 1 each of the other 10.

Back in 2004, this Hoth Luke Skywalker was pretty amazing. Ball jointed shoulders? A lightsaber with a removable blade? A snow base, and the means by which to hang upisde-down? Marvelous. He's still the best-sculpted, but is there room for a new one in 2010? Read on!
VC08 Pre Vizsla is next up in our Image Bank. The leader of the Death Watch comes well equipped with double WESTAR-35 blaster pistols and a darksaber that will lead that newly released Mandalorian Warrior Battle Pack quite nicely. Make sure to post your comments!
Still need Jabba the Hutt, this season's hottest and oddly hardest to find exclusive? Wal-Mart.com has it in stock again, and it's about $35. While you dawdle and perhaps complain about the price, it will likely sell out again. Consider taking advantage of the site-to-store thing to save on shipping. (We like this piece-- and we suggest you get one.)
Our buddies at Yakface.com report a variant with the SL06 Darth Vader. First released with the BD08 sculpt, recent findings show a helmeted 500th Vader version now hitting the pegs. Happy Hunting!
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!
We have updated our Image Bank with Vintage Collection Foil Cards (Ultimate Galactic Hunt) for your viewing pleasure.One more foil to update, and that's Darth Sidious, who has proven to be the most elusive for this hunter so far. Enjoy!
VC11 Cloud Car Pilot catches us up in our Vintage Collection Image Bank. This version of the pilot shares the same design schematic as the vintage version. What it doesn't share is the groovy stache so hip in Disco era Cloud City fashion. We're hoping for a running change head variant for a little more diversity in our Bespin aerial security detail.
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!
