Found the Star Wars Hot Wheels display box at my local Texas Toys R Us today. I didn't buy them as I don't collect these myself, but took some pics while at the store. Check out the display box above and for more photos click on through to our Facebook Page.

"In this installment of the StarWars.com 10, we’re picking the best creatures of Star Wars, from Tatooine terrors to Hoth horrors. For this list, we're focusing on monsters from the Star Wars films and Star Wars: The Clone Wars only, ranking them on design, impact, and scare factor."
While I was on vacation, our friend Jayson from Yakface let me know that he found a new variation on the Black Series #29 Wedge Antilles figure. So I tracked one down today at Target and took some pics of the change. So what is the change you ask? Hasbro has changed the color of his hair, eyebrows, and eyes from brown to black. You can check out the comparison photo above or check out the pics on the figure's page.
The Power of the Jedi Lando Calrissian (Bespin Escape) figure was released back in 2000 and packed on a collection 1 card. The overall sculpt looks good, but not a fan of the pre-posed stance, as it really limits this figure. Lando has 6 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips. He includes a Blaster Rifle.
Lots of fellow collectors sending in emails saying they found the Target Exclusive Black Series Imperial Shadow Squadron Pack at their local stores today. I missed out on these when they went on sale online, a few weeks ago, but located them via the Target "Find in a Store" tool we mentioned earlier today and picked a few up at my local store.
In Rebels Recon #4, StarWars.com delves into the Star Wars Rebels episode “Rise of the Old Masters,” with a synopsis, cast and crew interviews, and much more..Check out the video on the Star Wars Youtube Channel.

Was hoping when I returned home from my 10 day vacation I would find plenty of Star Wars Rebels toys on the pegs and shelves. But when I stopped at Walmart, Toys R Us, and Target on the way home from the Airport there was barely anything new at retail since I left.
The only new items I found at retail today was some Rebels Role Play items and the Hero Series Millennium Falcon Vehicle at Walmart.
Wrapping up my vacation in Rome and tried to track down some Star Wars Toys while I was there. The only store I seen with Star Wars Merchandise was the Disney Store.
They had no Star Wars Rebels 3.75" scale toys, but had plenty of everything else including The Black Series 6" (Wave 4), Black Series 3.75" (Wave 4) and even some of the Limited Edition Darth Vader Statues.
I snapped some pictures with my iPhone and uploaded them to our Facebook Page if you want to check them out.
