A tweet from follower @SuperAwesomeGeekShow has reported that the illusive Revan wave of 6″ Black Series figures have been found in the Seattle area at Target.

Yakface forum member CloneCrazy has kicked off a new photonovel series set in the times of the Old Republic. The visuals are breathtaking and the story is great.
Kick back, take a few minutes, and enjoy this first installment in his new series… and be so kind to leave him a comment too for his hard work and for sharing it with us.
For our latest Customizer Spotlight, we welcome a new member to our forums – Clonetroopr! As you can see by the teaser image above, he’s not new to customizing, as he’s got some great talent and has created a ton of KOTOR custom figures.
Kick back and enjoy his efforts after the jump!
Yakface forum members continue to raise the bar with their customs figures, which means another spotlight of their amazing work is overdue!
First up, Evilivo shares his take on a Wookiee Chieftan, which gives Hasbro a run for its money with their new figure of Merumeru.

The iTunes store now has Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic available for download for iPad for $9.99
IGN is reporting that Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic classic RPG may soon be coming to the iPad. It seems that language stating that the Star Wars RPG is “now available on iPad” was inadvertently included in a Aspyr Media newsletter. Head to IGN for more info.
We continue to have fantastic custom work shown off in our forums, and it’s only right to highlight more of the hard efforts of our resident customizers!
First off, Darth Daddy has created an awesome custom of Numa from the Clone Wars… take note Hasbro! This adorable little Twi’lek should have been made by now!
Next up, forumite super360 shares a very cool clone sergeant he’s working on – check it out here!

One of the most anticipated figures of the year is now available loose via overseas eBay seller tunghori. These probably won’t last long, and with distribution problems continuing to affect the TVC line (combined with this figure being slated at just one figure per case), why not click on the image above and order one? Or is it worth holding out in hopes that Hasbro will come through and this figure won’t be so difficult to track down in stores? Share your thoughts in the forums!
At San Diego Comic Con the past couple years, and Star Wars Celebration 5, the trailer for Knights of The Old Republic called “Deceived”, showing a group of Sith and a Mando sacking the Jedi Temple have had Star Wars fans drooling. While that trailer is actually not part of the game, fan response was so high that there had to be more given to that story, and now we have it — Paul S. Kemp’s Old Republic video game tie-in novel Deceived, which tells of that attack and its aftermath. On this week’s Star Wars Action News, Paul talks to Arnie about the writing of the novel, and its themes of attachment and the Jedi code.
Also this week, Marjorie and Arnie bring news of new releases from eFX Collectibles, Sideshow Collectibles, Gentle Giant, and more!
