Fresh from the drug store chain, Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) is out and about with improved armor deco, a retooled arm, and a new head. It's a decent figure - but it's still basically the same Vader from last year with a few modifications. Want to see more about this 6-inch figure? Read on!
Streetwear brand LRG (Lifted Research Group) launches their new Star Wars collection today featuring characters from The Original Trilogy. The collection includes tees, hoodies, and jackets ornated with characters and themes from a galaxy far, far away that would surely be appropriate attire for December 18th and the much anticipated release of The Force Awakens.
From Walmart's white and blue X-Wing, the Poe Dameron (The Force Awakens X-Wing) brings you the figure from the Armor Up release body sculpt with a different head - complete with dedicated helmet. In addition to the X-Wing, he's also got a blaster - is this enough to warrant your cash assuming you can find it? Read on!
Ad: They're coming! The Star Wars: The Force Awakens First Order Stormtrooper Bust includes free shipping from Entertainment Earth and is due in Q3 of 2016. It's a fabulous recreation of the new trooper on the block, shiny where it should be shiny and deadly all over.

If you pre-ordered or ordered in a brief window 2 weeks ago, you got this Imperial Stormtrooper from Amazon's exclusive four figure boxed set. The 6-inch figure is basically the same as a regular Stormtrooper, with more black marks on his record and armor. It's not bad! It's not fancy, but it's neat. Read on!
This week in Q&A: the future of "classic"! Does it have one? Disney Droids - should you wait for a trip next year? Well, I wouldn't. And some kinds of yellowing - you may or may not be able to clean up some recent figures a bit, but not many.
Also, happy Thanks giving shopping orgy week! Bring some mace and wear dirty laundry for safety. Don't forget, send in your questions for next week. Read on!
Behold, the Clone Trooper Commander! This 6-inch figure is part of Amazon's (at least temporarily) sold-out boxed set tracing the evolution of the troopers over 6 of the 7 movies. This one is, like the others, exclusive to the set - you won't find this deco elsewhere in this size. Get one if you can, and read on!
Check out the 6-inch Clone Trooper (Phase II), complete with the revised bucket we've all been dying for - and some other changes. A few deco points were altered from the previous releases, so this one is actually distinctive beyond just the helmet. (But not by much.) Should you snag this item next time Amazon restocks it for a decent price? Read on!
Don't (or do) miss Poe Dameron! This 6-inch pilot figure has a great sculpt with lots of wonderful detail, but strange ankles and stranger face deco. If you leave the helmet on, it isn't bad - the swappable fists are a nice touch. But do you need this one? Read on!

One of the best Super NES games 1992 had to offer is on PSN! Super Star Wars is up now for $9.99, which is less than the $59.99 it cost back then. I like this ridiculous action game a lot, with wonderful power-ups and goofy cut scenes. It's charming - if you love 16-bit gaming you might want to check this out.
Check out Target's 6-inch Poe Dameron - probably in stores now unless it sold out. I got mine online for $10 off, which is where you want to be - it's a good figure, but the likeness on Oscar Isaac toys as of yet could use some work. (He's a tough face to capture.) Should you get this one? Read on!
I haven't seen the First Order Snowtrooper Officer in stores since I got mine last month, but hey - it's new! This exclusive takes a plain Snowtrooper (which isn't out yet) and adds a pauldron, thus making it a better figure than the regular release is likely to be. If you can get it, it's pretty slick - so good hunting. Read on!
This week in Q&A: Posters! There aren't a lot of official movie posters floating around - will this change? And Rebels - we're going to get more, right? (Yes!) And The Tonnika Sisters - is there an update?
My mailbag is empty - so unless you have an inquiry, I get a vacation! Don't forget, send in your questions for next week. Read on!
If you like new droids, Yakface.com has some exciting news for you - the Holiday 2015 droid aptly named R2-H15 is out now! Actual pricing was not reported, but other droids in this line have been $12.95 and eBay prices (and mark-ups) seem to indicate that's about the going rate. Good hunting!
