Following up on Rebelscum’s report about the previously cancelled Legacy Collection Droid Factory assortment from 2013, I hit up my local Go! Calendars | Games | Toys store and found a few of those figures as well. Looks like I just need the Clone Trooper Sergeant and Luminara Unduli to finish off the assortment that caps off the Amazon Exclusive set nicely.

I picked up a new Star Wars Rebels book today from Toys”R”Us titled Star Wars Rebels: Head-to-Head which matches up characters and vehicles from the new series. It contains a lot of new characters and vehicle details as well as plot points for the series. I posted a sampling of them on our Facebook page, but to remain sensitive to spoilers, I cropped out the plot info from the images.
The softcover book is available now for pre-order on Amazon with a release date of Aug. 26, but you might be able to find yours in-store early as well.
Continuity aficionado Nathan P. Butler (Star Wars Timeline Gold and SWActionNews) has discovered a new Vader themed LEGO Star Wars Chronicles TV/Book series is in the works thanks to a new listing on Amazon.com. No official details for the as-of-yet unannounced series are available at this time, but it might be part of the Darth Vader themed TV specials that were reported by our friends at JediNews a few months back.
The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with a series of entries covering the Amazon Exclusive Droid Factory Set of Legacy Collection figures. We continue with the addition of Sun Fac.
PROS: Geonosians were ubiquitous in Attack of the Clones and Hasbro has done their best to have a strong representation of the species in the line since that film’s release. Even though we’ve received a Sun Fac figure before, Hasbro recycled an upgraded super-articulated sculpt for this version.
CONS: Personally, I find this to be an inferior re-deco when compared to his less articulated Saga Collection incarnation. The included blaster is less detailed in terms of paint as the chartreuse blaster effect is not present. I think that the desirability for this figure is more geared around the included TC-14 part then that of figure itself.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.
