Star Wars Guess Who

Ok so not officially licensed as Guess Who but it's exactly the same game but with Clone Wars characters. Not sure we really played it properly. we were asking questions like 'Is it a Jedi?', 'Is it a Separatist?'

Padmé Amidala Action Figure

Some good articulation on this figure and she can pull off a convincing running pose, however with her mouth fixed in that scream its not the best figure for recreating movie scenes, still I had to pick up this figure as my girlfriend has the costume.

Finally a photo of Shannen in her Padmé costume out on a troop.

EU: Aaron Allston X-Wing Novels

Following on from my post last month, here are the three books in the X-wing series that were written by Aaron Allston. The books still heavily feature Wedge but instead of Rogue Squadron they follow Wraith Squadron.

I didn't find the new characters as compelling as the Rogues but the stories Allston wrote are still good. Book 7, Solo Command, ends exactly where Courtship of Princess Leia starts, which is cool however there are continuity issues between the two books.

Commander Colt Action Figure

Been after this figure since watching the character's debut in TCW season 3, I love the idea of a clone that's part phase 1 and part phase 2.

Feel free to correct me in comments but I think this is the first time they've released a clone figure where the targeting sensor is articulated.

Lightsaber Chopsticks

A couple of people had the same idea for what to get me for xmas this year, I think they're great, I just need to learn how to use them, at least I love Chinese food.

Stormtrooper Tinned Mints

Cool little stocking filler from Santa, pardon the pun but I'll try to keep these mint in packaging.

Senate Security Clone Trooper Action Figure

My brother asked me what I wanted for xmas, I simply said 'any unnamed trooper'. I think this guy looks great, felt a little bad for removing him from his card as its a SDCC exclusive but I've opened rare figures before.

I'm really impressed with the detail on the shoulder plate and hopefully this photograph does it some justice. Finally a shot of all my Senate clones together.

Star Wars Playing Cards

Awesome set of Star Wars playing cards, would have loved to photograph every cool card but it'd have been far too many. I got some great stuff for my random Star Wars box over Xmas and look forward to sharing more of it over the next few Tuesdays. Hope everyone had a great holiday.
