StarWars.com Gets a Makeover

Since its launch in 1996, StarWars.com has periodically undergone changes in order to reflect its growing and evolving audience, and to keep pace with the rapidly shifting nature of the online world. This new version of the site is the biggest re-haul since Star Wars‘ official online presence began, and it will continue to grow and evolve in the immediate future. This is just the start of things, but an important one.

For the complete article and to explore the site, head on over to the new StarWars.com!

A special thanks to StarWars.com for including Yakface on their official Fan Sites page!

Bastila Shan – Available on eBay

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!

Droid Attack on the Coronet Hits TRU

Forum member combatJedi reports finding the new exclusive Droid Attack on the Coronet Battle Pack at a Toys”R”Us just yesterday – so might be a good idea to swing on by your local store to see if they have this in stock yet ($24.99).  Hopefully this set goes over well and gets Hasbro to make a new OT Probe Droid set as well (who doesn’t want that anyway?)!

Note – some of the latest Clone Wars figures have been sighted at Toys”R”Us this week as well via pallet displays in front of the Star Wars promo sections at the front of the store (Savage Opress, Seripas, Saesee Tiin)… as always, your mileage may vary.

Good luck!
