Here's a video of the new BMF for 2012, the Trade Federation MTT. It comes with a lot of electronic sounds, a motorized retractable compartment for the battle droid army, and a lot of other play features that may or may not justify the $130-140 price tag for you.. Check out the video ahead!
We have posted up our Hasbro Collector Media Event photos to our Image Bank. There's a bunch of eye candy to see, including the amazing MTT, a brand new Tarkin, a Bespin Gown Leia, Weequay, and so much more! Did you ever dream of having a Jar Jar in carbonite?

New! You probably bought this Darth Maul by now, knowing full well that it's the first completely new sculpt based on the movie costume since 2005. It has ball joints. It has ball elbows. It has a new head. But is this enough?

Because you asked! Aurra Sing is part of that frighteningly new Walmart exclusive wave of Discover the Force figures with awkward, sure-to-be-damaged 3D glasses hanging off the side.

We've been doing this for over 12 years (except Pawlus, who has been in the thick of things since '95) and this stuff never gets old. There's always a sense of anticipation on what's to be revealed by Hasbro this Saturday for their Toy Fair Collector Media Event. We've already seen a glimpse of the MTT and a few figures from the U.K. Toy Fair, but we are raring to go to show what else Hasbro has in store for 2012 and perhaps 2013.
