Where the master falls short, the apprentice shines. VC13 Anakin Skywalker is clearly the best iteration of the chosen one yet. Superb sculpt, super articulation, and soft goods that work. Heck, they even nailed the hair.
While the devil wears Prada, VC12 Darth Sidious certainly has a penchant for faux fur. The head sculpt is amazing and kudos on the removal cowl, but the execution of the felt soft goods jacket falls a little short. Sort of like a particularly cranky bag lady look. What makes sense with a Gamorrean Guard doesn't necessarily work with the evil despot of a galaxy far, far away. Just sayin, Big H.

If you picked up the new Slave I in the Toys "R" Us exclusive "Rise of Boba Fett" Ultimate Battle Pack (in stores now), you may have noticed a few special compartments-- and maybe even guessed what they could be used, or repurposed, for. We took the liberty of taking some quick shots of the Carbonite chamber in these storage areas. Click through for pictures!
Hey kids, it's the Clone Trooper Fives! He has a five on his head-- hence the name. Other than that, is he special? Or is he just another variant to make you mad? I liked it, but you should read on anyway.
VC01 Dengar would never win a beauty contest, but his latest incarnation in plastic is primo. A striking head sculpt with wicked detail in the paint app, the bounty hunter is in a worthy place first in line for the new Vintage Collection figures.

"Ain't Nothing like the real thing, Baby" is a tune that Jodo Kast should have listened to when taking on the reputation and identity of one Boba Fett. This K-Mart exclusive improves upon the 2008 version with a removable helmet and new headsculpt as well as an updated paint app.
Hasbro isn't shy about reusing its 2001 Rebel Trooper mold. This body has had no fewer than 5 heads to date and Hasbro seems to waffle on the prospects of redoing what was once a state-of-the-art release. Should you pick up this, yet another version of the famous trooper? Read on!
