LucasArts Announces Star Wars 1313

LucasArts has revealed a new game based in the Star Wars universe: Star Wars 1313.

Named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant, the game puts players in control of a deadly bounty hunter as he uses an arsenal of exotic weaponry to hunt down his marks and uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy. Star Wars 1313 emphasizes epic set pieces and fast-paced combat with a hero who uses human skills and gadgets, rather than supernatural Force powers, to make his way through this dangerous world.

Toyguide Update: CW10 Aqua Droid

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the next addition for the 2012 “Darth Maul” product line. We continue with the Aqua Droid (CW10) from The Clone Wars sub-line.

PROS: The Aqua Droid, though repacked from 2011, is an excellent figure in design, detail and deco. The figure is loaded with articulation resulting in a variety of posing options* and features a cool retractable head. Having a half dozen (or more) of these figures is necessary for an Separatist army builder or general droid fan.

CONS: The knee and ankle/foot joints can get a bit loose with repetitive play, resulting in the figure collapsing under its own weight. *Since this figure is aquatic based, Hasbro should develop a proprietary figure stand in order to display it in a swimming pose.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
