If you like a good podcast, you should check out The Sound of Young America if you aren't already a subscriber.

A stealth exclusive? Yup!

This new Jedi Force Clone Wars Adventure Pack is $14.99, in some Targets now on a special mixed Playskool/Imaginext endcap, and is-- say it with me-- just different enough to make you mad.
