Depending on the person's location, fans may tell you that this Leia (Hoth Outfit) is currently the most popular of the 11 just-released figures from The Empire Strikes Back.  She's certainly deserving of such sales, even if it may not be true, but is she worth your going out and buying?  Read on!

If you picked up the new Slave I in the Toys "R" Us exclusive "Rise of Boba Fett" Ultimate Battle Pack (in stores now), you may have noticed a few special compartments-- and maybe even guessed what they could be used, or repurposed, for.  We took the liberty of taking some quick shots of the Carbonite chamber in these storage areas.  Click through for pictures!

Image Bank: VC01 Dengar

By Mike — Monday, August 23, 2010

VC01 Dengar would never win a beauty contest, but his latest incarnation in plastic is primo. A striking head sculpt with wicked detail in the paint app, the bounty hunter is in  a worthy place first in line for the new Vintage Collection figures.

Q&A: Droids, Numbers, Bounty Hunter Vehicles

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 22, 2010

Image Bank: Jodo Kast (K-Mart)

"Ain't Nothing like the real thing, Baby" is a tune that Jodo Kast should have listened to when taking on the reputation and identity of one Boba Fett. This K-Mart exclusive improves upon the 2008 version with a removable helmet and new headsculpt as well as an updated paint app.

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 20, 2010

Hasbro isn't shy about reusing its 2001 Rebel Trooper mold. This body has had no fewer than 5 heads to date and Hasbro seems to waffle on the prospects of redoing what was once a state-of-the-art release.  Should you pick up this, yet another version of the famous trooper? Read on!
