We lacked the visual aid due to Hasbro deciding not to release the Toy Fair Star Wars presentation to the collecting sites, but thanks to POTF2.com, we can now view the slide showing the upcoming Bespin Battle and Duel On Naboo Battle Packs.
Geek and hip collide in 100% cotton as Super7 announces a new series of Star Wars Designer T-Shirts. The first three releases (Star Wars Arcade, AT-AT Boombox & Camo Walker) will be available Thursday, March 1st.
The second wave of Titanium 3 Packs have been spotted at a Target store in Southern California. This wave features vehicles from the Original Trilogy and includes re-issued versions of Luke's X-WING, the AT-AT, and Vader's TIE.
Star Wars Weekends 2012 begins on May 18th and runs through June 10th at Disney Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. The Official Star Tours Facebook Page has posted some photos of merchandise appropriately featuring Donald Duck as Darth Maul.
While this new Movie Heroes Jar Jar Binks isn't perfect-- we already know a new one is coming after him-- it's still fun and a refreshing take on a character we haven't seen much of lately. Should you get it? Read on!

I guess it was bound to happen. Box Office Mojo is reporing that The Phantom Menace has surpassed Star Wars on the all-time US box office chart, unadjusted for inflation.
As things settle down from all the new TPM 3D product, it's time to go hunting for deals. And this week, we have the K-Mart B-WING on sale, Target has a coupon, and TRU another free goodie with purchase.
Target sweetens the deals this week by marking down their "Shadows of the Dark Side" merchandise by 70%. This includes The Republic Attack Shuttle at an astoundingly low $23.99 (that's less than a price of a Class II vehicle!). If you haven't grab one yet, now is the time to do so. It may be not as appealing as an Original Trilogy toy, but it is fun and feature rich. The exclusive Vintage 3 Packs have also been marked down to $5.93. But there's a twist.
Here's another cool and zany Star Wars Kinect commercial this time recreating the Death Star Briefing Room scene and featuring a little girl twist on Darth Vader. There's a neat cameo by Richard LeParmentier, the actor who played the force choked Admiral Motti in the original film, but this time, the tables are turned so to speak.
There are a lot of Wedge Antilles figures out there, and this one is-- in some respects-- one of the best. It was packaged with an X-wing at Target a few years ago, and it's taller than the Vintage one which will be reissued shortly.
