Did you miss the 2010 Target Geonosis Arena packs and if so, is it too late? Why isn't Hasbro cranking out more carry cases for action figures? And is the balance in The Clone Wars action figure line giving us the right toys for our needs? All this and more if you read on, and don't forget-- send in your questions for next time!
I can usually find some good in most figures, but this Luke Skywalker is easily one of Hasbro's all-time worst. And this isn't just Star Wars, but their entire plastic output. Just look at the inset of Luke's head-- you know this is going to suck, so 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!

For years, fans have been wondering when Hasbro would give us Jodo Kast, and when we finally got one in 2008, we wanted to know when we'd get a good one. Well, here it is! The Kmart exclusive figure has a removable helmet and a nice paint job. Should you get one? 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! Read on for more and send in your questions for next week's mailbag!
A new 46-piece LEGO 30054 AT-ST is showing up in Target's new Easter sections, alongside new Ninjago and another City set. It's $3.99. In addition to this are other toys from various lines, including Funko's super-cool DC Pop! Vinyl Figures. (Green Lantern seems to sell out the fastest.) Happy hunting!
While the character has had a rich history in comic books, Quinlan Vos has only appeared in one episode of The Clone Wars, and Hasbro thought that was enough to crank out a figure. (I'm happy for this.) The figure has a lightsaber, and a speederboard for some reason. Should you grab him? Read on!
Hasbro has made thousands of 3 3/4-inch scale action figures, but few are as large as Kul Teska. He looks more like an average big Spider-Man figure, towering over even Darth Vader! He doesn't have a lot of gear, but he's huge and cool... and isn't that worth something? Read on!
The just-released and as far as I can tell, barely in stores Aqua Droid is an odd duck. It's an amazing piece of toy engineering, but it can't stand up-- not even with its stand-- for more than a few hours. Gravity, thou art a heartless... nevermind. Anyway, should you get it? Read on!
Wow, it's Figure of the Day #1500! What a milestone! To celebrate, we're going to look at a fun figure from 2010-- Pre Vizsla, the Mandalorian with the most gear. His helmet comes off, his articulation is exceptional, and really, you should buy him. Read on!
Since 2005, fans were wanting a new version of Commander Bacara, preferably with more articulation and less action-gimmickry. This one pulls through nicely, and was sold on individual cards in 2009. Did you get one when you had the chance, and should you track him down? Read on!
