If you’re in the Washington DC / Baltimore / Annapolis area this Saturday afternoon, please stop by, meet your fellow collectors, and join in the fun! Check out our website www.dcswcc.org and firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our friends over at Sandtroopers.com have gotten there imperial mitts on a couple new Battle Pack images. Previously a rumor floated by Mr. Curto at Rebelscum, these new sets consist of the Battle of Orto Plutonia from the Clone Wars featuring Cold Weather Anakin, Obi-Wan, Rex and Chieftan Thi-Sen. The second is the Invasion of Utapau from Episode III featuring Commander Cody, Airborne Trooper, General Grievous and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Although the figures in these packs are repacks, they do include the Galactic Battle Card and Mat for added play value – if you are into that kind of thing that is. Head on over to Sandtroopers.com for a closer look.
Another Customizing Challenge has just concluded! Check out all the amazing entries and see who the latest winners are after the jump!
There’s been a bit of a buzz in the forums recently with a rumor that we could be seeing Clone Wars characters in the realistic format next year.

PROS: A nice looking figure for the most part, a little “TRON”-like, but cool. Well armed in the accessory department and the flip-up face shield is nice touch as well.
CONS: Lacks knee and ankle articulation.
