Customizer Raylen has gone to great lengths to customize an AT-TE that would definitely give Hasbro a run for their money if they ever decided to update their Clone Wars version of this awesome vehicle.
As a follow up to our exclusive announcement of three new Droidfactory/Bulld-A-Droid astromechs coming soon to Disney Park locations, we can reveal R2-C2 as the fourth droid that should complete the 4 droid “Clone Wars” set.

Today while exploring the seedy underbelly of the internet, I came across three as-of-yet to be announced astromech figures that look to be part of a Clone Wars themed Droidfactory set for Disney Parks (note the missing wires on the feet). It is unclear if these will be offered together or individually, or if there is possibly a fourth droid to join them. Click on through for a closer look at R5-S9, R5-P8 and R5-U8/R5-013.

There has been a lot of commentary out there about the helmet size of the new Captain Rex (#09) figure from The Black Series being too small. There is a very easy “fix” that most people can do if you have some older Clone Wars Rex figures laying about. Click on through for a quick fix on bringing that shrunken head version back to the front lines of your collection.
StarWars.com has just announced that 4 unaired episodes from The Clone Wars will be making their debut at Star Wars Celebration and fans will get to learn the fate of “Echo”. These “Bad Batch” episodes will be presented in similar fashion to the unfinished Utapau arc that was released last year.
Tonight we take a look at one of the coolest customizing projects ever posted in our forums – The Box Project – by forum member Peakob1. This Clone Wars themed project entails customs of 12 of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy. Check it out after the jump!
Personal Note: It’s a shame that Hasbro let the Clone Wars line die with such a whimper, starting in 2012 they had pretty much abandoned the line and their last efforts included completely unnecessary resculpts of characters like Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. This project just goes to show how much potential that line had.
This March, Netflix will be expanding to Australia and New Zealand and with it comes a wide selection of Disney live-action and animated series including The Clone Wars. Check out DailyMail.co.uk for the details.
PROS: Again, this was one of the figures I missed in early 2014 due to the last wave of the previous line look not being released in the US. Here Hasbro offers another Obi-Wan, this time in his armor as seen from the early seasons of The Clone Wars. A solid looking figure overall with a crisp sculpt. Again, I’m glad Hasbro found a way to get this back out to collectors, but I think it’s high time we received an old Ben Kenobi in the 5POA line to round out the A New Hope character line up.
CONS: Where this figure falls short is the paint. This sample suffers from paint apps that are very sloppily applied, especially the legs. My guess is that this is the last “new” Obi-Wan figure, in this particular outfit, that we’ll ever receive and that’s a bit sad.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to 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.
This weekend we run a well overdue Customizer Spotlight on the amazing work of forum member Peakob1. Just imagine how much more exciting the Clone Wars line would have been in 2012 with attention to detail (and variety of characters) like this!
Few pieces of artwork distill the passion for Star Wars as do posters. From Tom Jung’s iconic one-sheet for Episode IV to Roger Kastel’s Gone with the Wind–inspired painting for Episode V and beyond, Star Wars has enjoyed nearly four decades of poster art from some of the most renowned artists working in movies. The fifth book in the George Lucas–curated Star Wars Art series, Posters collects the best artwork from all six Star Wars films, the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated television series, and limited-edition prints. This collection unites all of the action, artistry, and drama of a galaxy far, far away into one lavishly produced tome.
