So normally new lego sets come out around the same time as SDCC and when we went into TRU on Friday I wasn't super surprised that there were new sets I was suprised for two things though. #1 I didn't even know about this Echo Base set you see here and where ESB is my favorite movie of all time I had to have this one. It has a bacta tank Luke, and R3PO and a 2-1B medical droid as well as a bunch of others. #2 TRU does buy one get one 50% off lego sets sales several times during the year but they usually don't include Star Wars. This time it did. So not only did I get two big lego sets I got it on a BOGO sale!!!

Here you have the Republic Frigate. Very reminiscent of the Blockade Runner I also recently purchased.

This set is even cooler because it comes with new jedi minifigures of Quinlan Vos and Eeth Koth!

Kre what? Kre-O! Claw what? Clawful!

Normally I take pics of my new MOTUC figures in package and then open them up but I forgot this time as I was super excited to open up Clawful here. (I am having withdrawls because all my toys are packed away in preparation for moving). Once again another winner! Next month will be great and SDCC promises a great figure too. Read the bio for Clawful below.

So Hasbro has made these new construction legoesque sets called Kre-O They come with building blocks to build a character in robot mode or in vehicle mode. But the best part is that they come with lego like minifigures (but with more articulation) of G1 Transformer characters. This here is Thundercracker and. . . . . .

The reason I bothered buying the sets at all SOUNDWAVE. He looks awesome! I love it. So I bought the set with Sentinel Prime and took what I wanted and ebayed the rest. Wahoo!

In SW Episode II Attack of the Clones we were introduced to lots of new Jedi characters during the battle of Geonosis. The AOTC action figures released at the time of the movie were cool but they were permaposed with limited articulation so now that we are getting some better versions of these figures I have upgraded. Here we have Barris Offee from TCW.

Here we have Fi Ek Sirch formerly just called Nikto Jedi. He is from the vintage card series (still don't understand how an Ep II chracter can be vintage but whatever) These figures have the full range of articulation making them much better additions to my jedi/chracters with lightsabers collection.
