Back in 2004, this Hoth Luke Skywalker was pretty amazing. Ball jointed shoulders? A lightsaber with a removable blade? A snow base, and the means by which to hang upisde-down? Marvelous. He's still the best-sculpted, but is there room for a new one in 2010? Read on!
VC08 Pre Vizsla is next up in our Image Bank. The leader of the Death Watch comes well equipped with double WESTAR-35 blaster pistols and a darksaber that will lead that newly released Mandalorian Warrior Battle Pack quite nicely. Make sure to post your comments!
Still need Jabba the Hutt, this season's hottest and oddly hardest to find exclusive? Wal-Mart.com has it in stock again, and it's about $35. While you dawdle and perhaps complain about the price, it will likely sell out again. Consider taking advantage of the site-to-store thing to save on shipping. (We like this piece-- and we suggest you get one.)
What does the future hold for Disneyland and Star Tours? Apparently "Ace," or AC-38 (pictured) is our new replacement for Captain Rex. (The name is, of course, being used elsewhere.) Also new is a repurposed WA-7 which will be named "Aly San San" unless that's a typo. More at Micechat.

VC11 Cloud Car Pilot catches us up in our Vintage Collection Image Bank. This version of the pilot shares the same design schematic as the vintage version. What it doesn't share is the groovy stache so hip in Disco era Cloud City fashion. We're hoping for a running change head variant for a little more diversity in our Bespin aerial security detail.

A new version is coming, but this R2-D2 Bartender comes straight from 2004. At the time, this was an above-average figure with a good amount of gear, and from the look of things the new version Hasbro has in the works is way better. But is the original good enough? Read on!
