Just a friendly reminder, today's the last day to send for your Clone Wars Sgt. Bric with Battle Mat. Requests to Hasbro must be postmarked no later than today. To get it, you'll need to submit the order form and 5 UPCs from any Legacy Build-A-Droid figure, any Vintage Collection 2010-2011 figure, any animated-style Clone Wars basic figure, and any Saga Legends figure since the introduction of the weapons locker in 2008.
So it's come to this, another Emperor Palpatine repaint. This one came in the Crimson Empire boxed set with Royal Guard trainees and Darth Vader-- maybe you bought it, maybe you didn't. Should you? Read on!
According to pretty much every media outlet, the complete saga will now be hitting September 16, 2011 which is a full week earlier than previously stated. Also, the item is not exclusive to Amazon, as some of you have asked-- pre-orders are open all over the place.
It's Clone Trooper Jesse, a sort of a new mold as figures go. It's the new, Stone-style body but it has ball-jointed hips-- a first for this particular Clone mold. This puts him up there with ARF Troopers, but is it good enough to rebuy a BARC Speeder? Read on!

It's another Battle Droid! Hasbro cranked out so many different versions of this character that you could build an army without buying a single duplicate. This red version came out during the coinful batch of Saga Legends... should you get it? Scientists weigh in today, so read on!

If you love ARC Trooper figures, this one is worth picking up because it's rare that we get "Phase II"-inspired ARC Troopers. This particular one has a lot of blue and seems inspired by a number of different figures. Want to know more? Sure you do. Read on!
Today we look at vintage cardback logos, continue with your obvious disdain toward the lack of vehicles shown at Toy Fair, and we look at new villain figures... that we aren't getting yet. Oh, and we look at the amazing changes to Teebo's hat and how things don't seem to necessarily line up between the movie, the toys, and the photography from Lucasfilm. What an exciting mix!
