It's so hard to say goodbye, but Hasbro follows up on their plans to re-issue Vintage Collection action figures that were popular, like Starkiller and Shae Vizla, and others from 2012 waves (like more of the Red Kithaba variant). These are scheduled to distribute in February 2013, but based on recent sightings in the wild, some may be shipping to stores now.
It's Corpsey! Er, Nanta! This Ewok is best known as one of the dead Ewoks, and now he can be bought as a plastic exclusive at the Toys R Us. Assuming they still have any. You can tell where they were by the piles of unsold Yavin Pilot sets. (Those are good too.) Where was I?
For folks waiting for a further price drop on the TRU exclusive Vintage Collection Millennium Falcon, it's even cheaper...like half off! The Vintage BMF is now on sale for $125 (regularly $249.99)! Get yours today by clicking here! UPDATE: Sadly, it looks like it was a snafu by TRU and the Falcon is once again back up to regular price. The M.T.T. was also marked down to $90 for a short while and is now back to the "regular" sale price of $125.99. If it's any consolation, the Vintage BMF is on sale this week for $199.99 (at least in stores, for now.) It was almost too good to be true that the BMF would be on a regular sale for that amount, but sometimes you gotta just jump on it before it's gone and done.
From our sponsors at Brian's Toys: Yak Face makes a couple appearances on this week’s Brian’s Toys Newsletter. Along with a vintage Yak Face figure on Tri-Logo card, he also is available as a Gentle Giant mini bust from their 2009 gift to premier guild club members. Looking for more vintage? Several rare prototype coins have arrived from a Bronze Lando and Imperial Dignitary to 1996 blank back coins.
Congratulations to forum member Guido in winning the awesome Mandalorian Assault Transport! Thanks to everyone for registering in our new forums and entering our giveaway (except to the dudes wanting to hock UGG boots and North Face jackets...we get it.
Another Star Tours droid! It's not orange, so this Red R3-Series Astromech Droid is different than the droid in the Legacy line a few years ago. See the silver box around the black eye? That's how you can tell.
Recently released (and really the only animated toys of the season), Clone Trooper Boost is part of the just-released and also just-marked down to $15.11 As a redeco, you know what to expect... but at least it's a neat redeco and one that's priced to move right now. Should you get it?

It's Ahsoka Tano, this time released with creepy brain worms. Because it's the 201X-es, there are zombies in everything, even Star Wars. This figure set became a de facto closeout exclusive and may be at a store near you on the cheap. You'll have to go look. But should you make the effort?
This week on The Clone Wars: We kick off actual, genuine fun with "Secret Weapons." We know we're in for a departure this week because the "Clone Wars" logo was bright blue instead of the usual yellow. R2-D2 and a team of droids team up with a Republic tactician to obtain a widget from a separatist flagship. It's the best episode of the season. It may be the best episode of the series. I had a big, dumb grin on my face the entire time watching this one. More after the break. (Best. Episode. Ever.)
This Darth Maul was one of a few new sculpts cranked out this year, and as luck would have it I'm spying tons of these in Walmart 8-packs around town all of a sudden. It's a fun figure, and is a gem as 1/8 of a $25 set.
This version of Ki-Adi-Mundi comes from a 2008 Battle Pack which many fans missed. It didn't get very good distribution, but it's not too expensive and it's a wonderful set full of robots and clones. How can you go wrong?
Welcome to Galactic Hunter Q&A's 2012 Season Finale! Let's talk playsets and the infusion of new product thanks to Christmas. We can also talk about Hasbro's greatest Star Wars hits while you watch me whine incessantly about figure and vehicle compatibility. Oh, and robots.
