Images have surfaced of Hot Toys' upcoming (yet not officially announced) 1/6 scale Stormtrooper. What's interesting is the Stormtrooper on the right. Is it just us, or is he just a little short for a Stormtrooper? Click the images above to have a closer look and let us know what your thoughts are on what may be the final nail in the coffin for any company other than Hot toys to produce Star Wars 1/6 scale figures we want to buy. Image credit for the first image goes out to Sith-fire 30 Creations.

We almost blew milk out our noses when we saw the below linked auction, and we weren't even drinking milk! What is so great about it is the creative way the owner of this Big Millennium Falcon dealt with the missing sensor dish. If Lando was smart, he'd have done the same thing before Han Solo had a chance to see the damage he did before blowing up the Death Star.

While enjoying an early morning toy hunt, I stumbled across the first assortment of Mattel's cool Star Wars Hot Wheels character cars. While I will be photographing every angle for our photo archive, I thought you'd like to have a quick look. click the thumbnails above for a gallery showing off the extremely well designed card backs for all five cars and take note of how they utilized the standard Rebels style guide to create something that absolutely pops in the toy aisle and on any shelf in your Star Wars display. Each car was priced at $4.93 each. Do note these were found in a Walmart in Vancouver, BC, so the price and packaging may vary in the U.S.

The three Saga Legends figures Hasbro has revealed by way of Hunter PR are AWESOME (yes, that was an upper case awesome, which we save for very special occasions. As you know, we don't have a hang up with the 5POA figures, and the Han Solo (Bespin Outfit), Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot), and Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise) figures are pulling at our classic Kenner heartstrings like no other figures released in this collection so far.

We're not certain who the art director Hasbro put in charge of the photo shoot for the upcoming Mission Series two packs that include Han Solo & Luke Skywalker in Hoth Battle Gear, Luke Skywalker & Princess Leia Organa in their Prison Break Get Up, Ezra Bridger & Kanan Jarrus based on a scene we've yet to see, and R2-D2 & Yoda in their Hanging Out On Dagobah Gear, was but their choice of a white shooting surface left a lot to be desired. That said, they are still new high resolution images of stuff we haven't seen previously, so we still want to check them out.
