New Review: Myo


A new review has been posted, and a dandy it is as it introduces Myo, the first figure I picked apart from the Cantina Wave. I have to say though, this wave of figures is easily among my favorites of the entire modern line. When Hasbro hit the OTC era they really just cranked things up a notch or two, and the Cantina wave was the surprise ending to 2004!

Click the Cyclops image above to read the full review on Myo and, as always, give us your opinion in the Jedi Defender.com Reviews Forum as well. We welcome all discussion on the critique of these little plastic obsessions of ours here at Jedi Defender!
