Tamashii.jp has updated their site with details for the upcoming S.H.Figuarts Jango Fett. Interestingly, this looks to be an amalgam of the Kamino and Geonosis armor based on the jetpack, bladed gauntlets and harpoon/grappling cable accessories.
Look for it this September where S.H.Figuarts figures are sold.
Sideshow Collectibles has updated today revealing final production images for their upcoming 1:6 Scale Jango Fett figure.
Gentle Giant is also taking preorders for their Zam Wesell statue.
Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., the Zam Wessel Statue features the changling assassin in her highly detailed costume holding her sniper rifle and container of Kouhun Worms. Zam also includes 2 interchangeable portraits, one humanoid portrait, and one Clawdite. Crafted using only the highest quality polystone, each limited-edition hand-painted statue comes individually numbered and is packed with a matching certificate of authenticity.
The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with a quick tour of the new 1:6 Scale Geonosis Battle Droid Commander from Sideshow Collectibles.
PROS: A spot-on representation of the Battle Droid Commander from Attack of the Clones. Paint and sculpt are impeccable (as usual) as are the articulation and accessories. This release shines in the fact that it includes a very cool light-up communications console that features switch out “caps” for varied display options. The Holographic Count Dooku is surprisingly large – nearly 3-3/4″ scale – and looks fantastic when illuminated. Finally, this figure looks great when commanding his other Geonosian Infantry Droids released earlier this year.
CONS: Be careful in the handing of the droid right from the packaging as the elbow joints for most battle droids I have encountered have been frozen (i.e. stuck) and the arms can easily break if the joints are forced. There is only one more “movie” battle droid that needs to be released – the blue “pilot” version – after that, I hope Sideshow offers a Super Battle Droid or Droideka as the standard battle droid sculpt is starting to feel a little played out.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

It’s hard to believe it, but a decade has passed since the AOTC line officially launched at retail.
Personally, I can recall a night of hitting every Wal-Mart in my area looking for that dang Royal Guard, and hearing some guy bragging about how he found two of them at a different Wal-Mart… only the next morning, to find that Toy”R”us had gotten in dozens of that assortment, and feeling relieved, but broke!
Feel free to relive the excitement of that launch in our forums or at the message board at Jeditemplearchives, and special thanks to forum member Darth Eddie for the reminder!
