The commander of the elite Senate Guard transitions into Phase II armor and penalized with less leg articulation, but Commander Fox looks absolutely smashing in his Target employee colorway.

From our sponsors at Brian's Toys: The Brian’s Toys newsletter this week features a great selection of new Sideshow pre-orders. The C-3PO and R2-D2 droid duo are together again in the long waited premium format and the sixth scale Bossk figure is a brand new announcement today! Also new is the Medicom VCD Jawa, which looks more realistic to the movie version than the regular caricatured VCD versions.
Sideshow has posted pre-orders on the new and amazing Sixth Scale Bossk. This looks to be the definite version at any scale and from any licensor based on the detail, super-articulation and authenticity painstakingly applied on this figure. The Sideshow exclusive version even comes with an alternate snarling head!
