About every 2 or 3 months, a rumor is floated out there that there are new Star Wars movies in the works. Today, iesb.net is reporting that there are reliable “inside sources” indicating that this may in fact be the case. Take the link and see what you think.
The official site has announced a new hardcover novel from renowned Star Wars author Timothy Zahn. Choices of One is set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back and features Luke, Han, Leia and Mara Jade! Head to StarWars.com for more details.
Our friends at Sandtroopers have received a few new images today showcasing some yet-to-be-officially-announced figures for the Clone Wars line. Head on over for an advanced look at Clone Trooper Hevy (in Training Armor), Obi-Wan Kenobi (new sculpt), Cad Bane (new sculpt) w/TODO-360 and Ahsoka’s astromech, R7-A7!
PROS: A nice repaint of the basic battle droid mold. The figure has a nice silver/metallic wash in areas in addition to the yellow commander markings.
CONS: Legs lack articulation (knee and ankle) that would really help in the overall stability and playability of the figure. The legs also warp very easily making the use of a display stand almost mandatory. Finally, and extra joint in the arms (recycled from the Battle at B’Omarr Monastery sculpt) would/should have been utilized here as well.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
