Collect All 92! Bespin Security Guard


Jesse pointed this out the other day and it rings very true. Why in the world with all of the army builders that Kenner could have chose to make more than one version of, did they choose to make a second Bespin Security Guard?

It seems that ToysRUs.com has put their Battle of Endor multi-packs (3 pilots & 1 droid) up for pre-order with shipping estimated for 2/11/11. The price you ask? A mere $24.99. That's not bad at all for army building sets!

Toys R Us Price Hikes


We got word from forumite JACKOFTRADZE that his recent trip to Toys R Us yielded something of a shock. Vintage figures are up to $10.99, and Clone Wars/Legends are now tup to $8.49. Toys R Us wasn't selling Vintage well near me anyway, so I doubt this helps.

Toys R Us Sale: 12/10 - 12/11


Forumite Scockery let us know today that Toys R Us is having another 2-for-$9.99 sale on Star Wars figures (Clone Wars and Legends) this weekend. Look for these Friday and Saturday. They really should do this for Vintage since those aren't going anywhere at 1 for the same price.

UPDATE: Green Deco Clone Commander


Some images of a new Clone Wars Clone Commander with green markings and Commander Cody armor, surfaced this weekend. The figure features a unique deco, but wasn't one I recognized. Trying to keep up with the Clone decoes is a full-time job, so I may be missing the details on this figure. In the meantime, check it out!

UPDATE: As always Jeff comes through with the answer! The Trooper above is Captain Lock from the episode where Grievous kidnaps Eeth Koth.

Vintage Wave 5 R5-D4 Image


Few waves of figures have inspired the anymosity that the Vintage Collection's Wave 5 has. Today though we have a loose image of R5-D4 from that wave, a repaint of the Build-A-Droid sculpt, which has been dismissed by some and appreciated by others. Click the image above to check it out.

The Old Republic Release Delays


It seems that the Star Wars MMORPG The Old Republic is on hold till at least April 2011, and possibly longer, according to EA Execs. Rumors are swirling that the game has gone grossly overbudget now for a little while. How soon it sees release, and whether it can live up to the hype, are good questions.

Hidden Target Sales?


Target seems to have their exclusives on sale, but may not be marking them well. I ran into the Attack/Defense of Hoth sets for $34.99 and Mighty Mugg sets both marked with sale tags. However, I got reports that almost all their current exclusives are on sale. Your mileage may vary, but it's worth checking if you're waiting on something there right now.
