Case Breakdown for TVC Wave 5

Various e-tailers have posted the case breakout for the upcoming wave 5 for the Vintage Collection:

1x Anakin Skywalker
1x General Grievous with Cape
1x Sandtrooper
1x Yoda
1x Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight)
1x Clone Trooper
1x Luke Skywalker (Ep IV)
1x R5-D4 (Ep IV)
1x Stormtrooper
1x Han Solo (EP IV)
1x Clone Commander Gree
1x Darth Vader

As you can see, this wave doubles-up on a lot of character/figures (2 different Lukes, 2 different clones, 2 different stormtroopers, etc.) but most interesting is that Yoda as found a new home with this wave. Wedge on the other hand is still M.I.A.

Episode 275: The Lego Pen Is Mightier Than The Lightsaber Pen

As we move into the final week before Christmas it’s catch-up time on Star Wars Action News as Marjorie and Arnie run down the latest half-off Star Wars toy sales for the last minute Christmas shopper (or bargain collector), and they review a number of new items including the lightsaber pens from Starwarsshop.com, new Lego pens appearing in the toy aisle of Toys R Us, and Gentle Giant’s 2-1B mini-bust.

Plus the reviews continue as they look at StarWarsShop’s wampa rug (and you should see the pictures of Jar Jar chilling on the rug!), Hasbro’s remote control Hailfire Droid, and even a review of Robot Chicken’s latest Star Wars special!

All this, plus your voicemails and more, on this week’s Star Wars Action News podcast!
