UPDATE: TODO-360 Figure Coming?


We've gotten in pretty solid information that TODO-360, the proper little droid voiced by Seth Green on The Clone Wars 3-D will be getting his own action figure in the near future. He's almost more an accessory, but fans of the character will be pleased.

UPDATE: Hasbro has mentioned TODO-360 in the Q&A as noted by our own staffer Jeff Smentek. He'll be getting a figure sooner rather than later though it seems. Hopefully more details will follow soon.

And hot on the heels of all the other news, like new mid-size vehicles being found in the U.S., and Target Exclusives everywhere, we get word that the Canadians are finding the Wal-Mart TIE Bomber on their shelves as well! Not long before it's invading U.S. stores I'm sure, so happy hunting (and thanks again to Morgbug for the tip).

New Star Wars Miniatures Company


A new company, Knight's Models, have picked up the miniatures license left by Wizards of the Coast. The company makes White Metal miniatures, which are more like the metal cast minis from West End Games from years back. Check out their site for both their 30mm and 70mm scales. 70mm isn't quite Hasbro scaled though, if you're curious.

The Canadians are currently getting all the scoops. We've heard from forum member Morgbug that the Wal-Mart stores he's visited up North have had quite a healthy stock of the exclusive Jabba the Hutt w/Oola set! Could the U.S. stores be far behind for a heavy restock of this tough item to track down?

The Force Unleashed 2 Demo


The Official Site has announced the demo to The Force Unleashed 2 will be available on 10/12. The level plays out on Kamino where Starkiller's just been told a shocking revelation by Vader, and must escape. Vader's good at those revelation things for dramatic effect, I guess.
