Happy July 4th, everybody! This week we look at if we should blame Marvel and the Transformers for a lack of Star Wars. I wish I could say yes. Is there a correct color for the carbonite block? Let's discuss! And do you have a problem that new vehicles are tweaked versions of old vehicles? Pull up a chair, and read on!
After being revealed in the new issue of Previews (shipping to homes, offices, and comic shops now) Rebelscum found a packaged image of the new Y-Wing Scout Bomber, a new mini-rig type of vehicle seemingly very much inspired by the 1980s toys of Kenner.
News! While Hasbro has yet to reveal images of this to the press or their retail partners, the Jedi Temple Archives have found the AV-7 Mobile Cannon Vehicle and have in- and out-of-the-box images! Wow! Go check it out.
The summer kicks off with a new print ad from Hasbro featuring the bounty hunter, Zam Wessel, and the Attack of the Clones wave in their retro vintage carded glory. Enjoy!

While there's no picture or exact description of what it is just yet, our sponsor Entertainment Earth has listed a Mandalorian Gunship as a part of the Starfighter vehicle assortment. More as we have it, but you can go look at the listing now if you'd like. If ever there was a time to stock up on generic Mando troopers, this might be it.
The rumors are true! Today Toys"R"Us emailed little ol' us pics and info on a new Republic Commando Delta Squad Action Figure set which will be sold at Comic-Con in San Diego, via Toys"R"Us, at the Entertainment Earth booth #2343. And yes, there are new molds in here. More pics after the jump.
When first revealed to the public in 1999, another, better R2-D2 was shown around the same time. As such, this one didn't get as much heat, especially after we all found out his scene was deleted-- the booster rockets took on a new form in the sequels. Ah well. But is it neat? Read on!
One of the most likable critters from Jabba's Palace is the cackling puppet Salacious Crumb. He's a jerk. What's not to love? The 2010 release was a repaint of the 2007 release, hardly essential were it not for the fact it came with a new Jabba and Oola. So how is he different? Read on!
Ad: New from Funko, the Star Wars Wacky Wisecracks are coming! 6 unique figures with stylized sculpting and wacky sayings. Check out the Darth Vader Galaxy's #1 Father Figure and the swell Yoda Man Figure, plus more!
It's no secret, I love Ewoks. I think the fact that a lot of collectors hate them makes me like them even more. I was particularly jazzed to get the 2009 update of Paploo which, while I don't love as much as the 1984 original, I still like bunches. Is he worth your while? Read on!
It's the Evo Trooper, repainted and camo'd up for 2010! This figure was a Toys R Us exclusive and now... well, maybe you got one. If not, it's probably not there any more. Is this repaint worth it? Read on!
It's not superbly common that we get a character like Anakin Skywalker in a disguise like this Naboo Pilot uniform without a regular Naboo Pilot coming out first-- but hey, here we are! It's a neat figure with a neat ship. Are you excited? Should you be? Read on!
