By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 31, 2017

It begins!  The first figure I cracked open from Force Friday II was the Imperial Probe Droid.  It's the first all-new Probot in nearly 20 years, and it's a nice one with a better integrated rocket, a superior sculpt, nifty Force Link sounds, and a clear display stand.  And more articulation.  And glossy plastic bits.  It's just better - read on!
