This swell Firefighter Droid is an oddity-- it's a villain painted up to look like a real-life heroic figure. (I have a lot of Playmobil firefighters, you see.) The figure is also retooled slightly from previous animated Battle Droids. Is this Clone Wars bad guy a keeper? Read on!
Aside from Boba Fett and Yoda, VC04 Bespin Luke is one of those ESB characters Hasbro has to eventually nail if they state that these Vintage Collection figures are the premium representations they're supposed to be. We're happy to say they nailed it. Featuring a spot on headsculpt, super articulation, and great paint detail, they should template this for future purposes like a running change "battle damage" version or Dagobah training. It's just that good. Post your comments if you agree or disagree!
Hey, what could be better than Princess Leia in some sexy dress she used to get a lizard man in the sack? Anything, that's what! (We kid.) But seriously, this figure didn't do too well in some markets and a lot of Shadows of the Empire fans already forgot she exists-- odd for a 2008 figure. Should you grab her? Read on!
While Hasbro has captured the likeness of Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, they sometimes struggle with Harrison Ford. VC03 Han Solo (Echo Base Outfit)'s headsculpt is fairly decent, but not the best. He does come with cool welding accessories and Patagonia-ish cold weather jacket along with some recycled parts, so he's definitely worth picking up. Here's hoping that the rumored "ultimate" Bespin version is the bees knee's. Thoughts on the new Han? Make sure to post your comments!

Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about a variety of new arrivals and more exciting new preorders: including Star Wars Vintage Collection Wave 2 (ROTS)!
He looks alien, and he looks like he stepped out of a 1970s comic book. He's Djas Puhr, alien bounty hunter! The figure has way more detail than the original costume likely had, and has some nice hidden articulation to boot. Is he worth the nothing he currently sells for? Read on!
Clearly the best interpretation so far, VC02 Leia in Hoth Outfit is no frills, with only a removable vest and blaster to feature. Yet the power of the sculpt and paint detail speaks volumes in its subtlety. You don't need a committee to appreciate that, laser brain.
What do you think of the new Leia? Make sure to add your comments!

There's still no Ziro the Hutt toy, but last year we did get a low run of Ziro's Assassin Droid! This repaint of IG-86 has great articulation and arguably the best paint job. Should you get it? Of course! But read on anyway.
