A vast improvement from last year's release, CW23 Kit Fisto is another great figure in the 2010 Clone Wars assortment. Hasbro gives him well articulated legs and ankles this time along with a soft goods skirt so he can easily fit into the cockpit of his new Walmart exclusive Jedi Starfighter. Not surprisingly, Kit has been one of the harder to find at least in this reporter's area. Don't hesitate to pick him up of you see him. Make sure to post your comments!
Rumors abound that this Clone Commander figure from the comic packs earlier in 2010 are starting to hit closeout shelves-- but we haven't seen them yet. It's a repaint, sure, but is it worth it? Read on!
A wonderfully executed figure with the perfect sculpt and great articulation, CW11 Aurra Sing is the best yet, and if you haven't picked her up, you need to. A brand new super articulated sculpt that is evolutions above her POTJ and Saga iterations, Sing is a pasty yet sexy volatile piece of plastic. If we were to nitpick, an additional dead Jedi lightsaber would have been fantastic. Please post your comments on the bounty hunter!

You can now have your Separatist commander hard-boiled or deep fried. Hasbro retooled the previous TCW versions and gave him additional articulation (especially in the legs), interchangeable battle damage parts, new head sculpt, but alas, less ambidexterity and fire power. CW10 General Grievous may be the best TCW version yet, but if there's one complaint, it's that his shoulder plates do not stay on and we recommend keeping the rubber bands on the hands because they are not sculpted well enough to grip those sabers.
Serve the public trust. Protect the innocent. Uphold the law. Yes, CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer sorta reminds us of this guy. As with most Clone Wars designed action figures, the sculpt is true to the series. While the limited articulation in the legs holds this figure back from a poseability standpoint, the shield/firing missile launcher combo is a nice touch.

It's a fact: Pit Droid figures are great. In 1999 and 2000, Hasbro really cranked them out with several in the USA and six more being, for the time, temporary exclusives. This one came from a 2-pack sold in North America-- how is it? Read on!

San Diego was always a sentimental favorite for event organizers, where the pop culture gathering has been held since its modest inception in 1970.
