We here at JediDefender are pleased to bring you a brand new weekly feature - The JediDefender Image Database Retrospective!

Word from an employee of Target, who has reportedly seen the Lava Chrome Vader Exclusive first-hand, is that they're labeled as being "1 of 50,000" giving us a potential glimpse at the production numbers on this particular item. At the same time it was also mentioned about the figure shipping in a clamshell not entirely dissimilar to the VOTC Clamshells. Good news for the carded collectors who will inevitably be clamoring to get this figure early in the morning of 4/2!
Target should prove one of the more interesting stores to visit during the blitz of '05.

And now one of my favorite figures from the OTC line, and one of the better army builders to-date, the Cloud Car Pilot gets a rundown by yours truly in my review column. A very well made figure, with good articulation, nice accessories, good features, and a great sculpt... What more can you ask for? Well I'll let you know just what all you could actually ask for with this guy, though I agree it's not a lot. This was definitely one of my favorites from last year, and now all he needs is a cloud car to take a cruise in!
Now go read the review, and when you're done reading the review we invite you to come discuss this (and many other) figure in our Reviews Forum!
Some time ago we ran an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current 5 Star Wars films. With an OT heavy year in 2004 and most of the RotS plans done until the end of the year, we thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You submit your Wish List for your 10 most wanted 3 3/4" figures, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases, and we'll tally the votes. After three weeks of list taking, the results will be published and we will move on to the next movie.
The second Prequel, Episode II: Attack of the Clones, is now open for voting. If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Site's Databank: Episode II. Entries will be taken by e-mail or you can post them in our forum!!! Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Coming back at you with another review, Jedi Defender proudly unveils Lobot for your reading and viewing pleasure. A much-needed resculpt of a character who is a tad less than exciting, I am pleased to say Hasbro took some extra efforts to make him a bit more interesting! And who is that asking Lobot for his favorite flavor of ice cream?
OK, enough of that... Go read the review, and when you're done reading the review we invite you to come discuss this (and many other) figure in our Reviews Forum!

That trend continues today with The Original Trilogy Collection's Bespin Leia, the first from the famed Bespin Wave for your reading pleasure. And let the Leia fans rejoice at getting a sorta new version of her!

Well, click the image above, read my review, and see what all I have to say on that issue. Try not to yawn too much though, incase you find her as dull as I did.

Well, up next we have Dagobah Spirit Obi-Wan Kenobi to round out the Original Trilogy Collection's Dagobah Wave. The good news is he is a pretty good spirit figure, but there's bad news too.

But, enough wishing, and go read the review by clicking the image above.

Hasbro cranks out yet another update, this time including shots of some of the best looking figures from the upcoming line.

We've gotten several reports in today that there's been some serious early leakage on the ROTS vehicles and Galactic Heroes figures happening today at various Targets across the country. I can confirm the sitings, as I had similar luck today, finding the Obi-Wan Star Fighter and Droid Tri-Fighter (missed Grievous' Wheelbike) and the three new Galactic Heroes figures 2-packs (Obi-Wan/Grievous, Dooku/Anakin and Sidious/Yoda). So get your huntin' shoes on, and get these bulky items out of the way so there's more room for your figures at Midnight Madness! Good luck...

Clearance time already? It seems like it may be the case in my neck of the woods at least! I lucked into Preview Wave figures and brand new Unleashed figures, both marked down a fair bit from Target's retail price.
Unleashed were $10.48 (regularly $14.99), and the Basic Preview Wave figures were $4.88 (regularly $6.99). That's some pretty good savings, and the kicker was the Unleashed figure I got was the new Stormtrooper, and I got an extra preview Wookie. Not a bad haul at all!
