Black Series figures ($11.99 Greedo) and other items also received deep cuts, and since we're going to go ahead and say this qualifies as news, you'll see more of them after the jump.

Click here for more, but the important thing is that it's expected to sell for $200,000-$300,000, which is more than I expect to earn before I die in a bizarre gardening accident in the coming decade.
Reader PJS sent in an image that you're sure to delight in - it turns out that the 6-inch Black Series Sandtrooper head fits nicely on the existing Sandtrooper 3 3/4-inch body!

I can tell you're excited - we're going to round out Toys R Us' latest exclusives (and take a break) with Clone Captain Deviss, a redeco of a figure that was a redeco of another figure. He has a name now! How about that? Should you care? Read on!
Available at a Toys R Us near you right now, Selig Kenjenn (not Zelig, I don't think) is shown being at the Battle of Geonosis. Except he wasn't there - the character is based on a piece of art depicting Holocron-keeper Leland Chee as a Jedi, which had TIE Fighters in the background. As such, it's less an essential movie collectible than it is a bizarrely neat trivia question for people like you and me who live and breathe this stuff. Read on!
