Shaking off the post-Comic-Con whiplash/hangover the lads over at Sandtroopers.com slap up one more new piece to blow our socks off. The 2010 TIE Bomber from Hasbro's Vintage Collection has more new features than expected. (Turn a dial at the back to drop missiles?) Who would have ever thought that would happen (and work)? There's also the modern convenience of having an ejecting TIE Pilot.

We located one Jabba the Hutt with Oola Action Figure set at Wal-Mart in Phoenix, Arizona this afternoon. It it exclusive to the chain, and for those keeping track it was $34.97. It is worth noting that the pipe and bowl are retooled and do not include Jabba's creature snacks, so you may wish to hold on to the 2004 model's accessories.

Hey kids, and welcome to the first Q&A on this exciting new template. Speaking of templates, I don't have one, so I'm fudging this one for our first installment. Anyway, let's look into Millennium Falcon variations, vintage Vintage figures at Toys "R" Us' web site, figures you can't find and feel compelled to keep asking about, and much more. How much more? So much more.

On with the show! (Beware of large downloads!)
