More translations! This new Hasbro Clone Trooper blaster was shown at Comic-Con with a lot of words on its body-- but what do they mean? The top row is "CC-2224," and that's Clone Commander Cody's identification number. The bottom is "Republic." Exciting!
The time around Comic-Con traditionally provides a window of opportunity for new stuff to hit the shelves as brick and mortar stores re-set for back to school. After experiencing shelves seemingly doldrumed with old merchandise, the hunt is once again on.

He's small and fishy. Robonino was one of those figures fans started asking for, subsequently got, and didn't really buy. His Target-exclusive gift set is still available nearly 9 months after its introduction, which is a shame, as it's a nice set that should sell through. Should you get one? Read on!
It's that time again! Fan's Choice Metrics is back and updated for 2011. This week, we look at the first five "Fan's Choice" contests run by Hasbro. How many figures did we actually get? Surprisingly, most of them. Read on for more!
If you want to get the most detail and authenticity out of your collectible figure, then a larger 1/2 scale canvas will extract as much creativity as possible. Sideshow debuted their Legendary scale Darth Maul and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the results are amazing. The facial features and likeness to Guiness and Park are extraordinary. One, of course, must have ample room in their home to be a "completist", but collecting one to display instantly qualifies it as a collection centerpiece.
We have uploaded photos of all the Japan collectible goodness from Kotobukiya. The centerpiece of their booth are the new R2-D2 and Han Solo Carbonite ice trays that are sure to be a hit for your summer cocktail parties. ActionFigureExpress also offered their SDCC exclusive TFU Stormtrooper Commander 2 Pack at the show.
