Bit of a Force Unleashed special for today's post with action figures of the three main characters from the game. In the middle its Galen Marek aka Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice. Left is Rahm Kota, a Jedi Knight who survived Order 66 and attempts to turn Galen to the lightside. On the right is Galen's love interest Juno Eclipse.

I have literally just completed this collection, pictured above is all six bounty hunters that Darth Vader sends out to hunt down the Millennium Falcon in ESB. Now a couple of these I have previously posted, Dengar and Bossk, but the others can be found below.
First off, and this one is probably worthy of it's own post, is the man himself Boba Fett. Awesome action figure and another of my favourites. Boba comes complete with jet pack and the flames coming from the pack serve as a stand for the figure.
Great detail on this figure with all the right markings on the armor and a really nicely sculpted cape.
Next up we have IG-88 on the left here. This is the figure I picked up this morning thus completing my bounty hunter collection. Again really good detail on this figure.
Pictured below is bounty hunting partners Zuckus (left) and 4-LOM (right).

For me this is probably my favourite new character to be introduced in TCW series, not only is this pirate conniving, greedy and dangerous, he's also laugh out loud funny. Great figure too, comes complete with pistol, sword, goggles and of course a Kowakian monkey-lizard!
Isplourrdacartha Estillo or Plourr for short was a member of Rogue Squadron in the months after the Battle of Endor and featured quite heavily in the comic series X-Wing: Rogue Squadron. Always good to see more women flying X-Wings for the Alliance, something a little lacking in the original trilogy.
One of my favourite characters here although not nessacarily one of my favourite figures. This one is based on Ki-Adi's appearance in TPM and came out around the time of that movie, not a huge amount of articulation and little bulky compared to more modern figures, I will say however that I do like the facial expression on this one.

From TCW season 1, when R2-D2 is missing in action Anakin needs a replacement astromech for his starfighter so introducing R3-S6 aka 'Goldie' however all is not as it seems and the new droid turns out to be a Seperatist spy hell bent on sabotaging Anakin at every turn.
This figure is exactly the same as the R2-D2 figure I posted way back when I posted Anakin Skywalker and his Jedi Starfighter but since I didn't give a good look at R2 I'll make up for it here with some close ups on the right of the droids' gadgets.
Interesting one this, its a Star Wars horror novel. Not sure that I found it particularly scary, did have a certain creepiness to it but I would say its more disgusting than frightening. Still its a cool idea and the horror cliches definitely fit well in the Star Wars universe and I'm looking forward to the sequel or prequel, whatever it is that's meant to be coming out.

Usually i don't post new figures right away but I've been after this one for ages and it's too damn cool not to share right away, this is Pre Vizsla, leader of the Death Watch from TCW season 2 and he's awesome for two main reasons: 1) He's voiced by Jon Favreau, and 2) he has a 'dark' saber.
This figure comes with cape, removable helmet, dark saber (see above) and dual blaster pistols (see right). Also couldn't resist posing him against Obi-Wan ala their duel in TCW.

I'm cheating a bit here, this is the same senate pod I used when blogging my Orn Free Taa action figure a couple of weeks ago. It'd be great to be able to have enough pods to display all my senators but unfortunately the pod only comes as part of battlepack with Yoda and Darth Sidious, I already have two Yoda and as you've seen three iterations of Palpatine.
