For the variation hunters out there, I thought I would point out that there was a paint variant on the Power of the Jedi Ketwol head. Per the date stamps on the samples I have, the earlier version had a mainly brown painted head, while the later versions had a green and brown painted head. I have 3 of each and I know of other people that have both of these as well, so its not a one off error. You can check out a comparrison photo above or check out the figures page for larger pics.
Also there is a spelling error on the UPC sticker, Ketwol is spelled "Ketwal" but I don't think Hasbro ever corrected the spelling error as I was never able to find a corrected UPC sticker.
Today we revisit the Power of the Jedi Ketwol figure which was released back in 2000. The sculpt looks great and even looks better then some of the figures we are seeing today. Ketwol has 6 points of articulation (when not wearing pants) which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips. He includes a removable Robe and Pants.
I have added some boxed Preview photos of the Target Exclusive Rebels Saga Legends AT-DP and Driver set to our HD Photo Gallery this evening. This set is slowly trickling into Target stores as we speak with a retail price of $24.99. Enjoy the pics!
More then likely you already know that you can start to pre-order Star Wars Battlefront this week. Just wanted to mention that there is 2 versions of the game available to pre-order.
• Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition - $69.99 which includes: In-game items include DL-44 blaster - as made famous by Han Solo (instant access), Ion Grenade (instant access), Ion Torpedo (instant access), Ion Shock (exclusive emote) and Victory (exclusive emote)
• Star Wars Battlefront Standard Edition - $59.99
Also if you pre-order before the November 17th release date, most retailers are offering special codes for early access to maps like Battle of Jakku. I personally pre-ordered the PS4 deluxe version from Best Buy since I am a Gamer Unlocked member and get $10 back in rewards.

"Major announcements and several clues about the new Star Wars stand-alone movies were made at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim today when Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart, and Pablo Hidalgo were joined in a panel discussion by director Gareth Edwards and Industrial Light and Magic’s John Knoll.
Kathleen Kennedy revealed that the upcoming big screen adventures that explore the characters and events beyond the core Star Wars saga will be known as the Star Wars Anthology Series."
Just added the 2015 Black Series 6" Deluxe Han Solo and Tauntaun Set to our HD Photo Gallery. This includes all loose and boxed pictures. Both of these figures look awesome. Hasbro did a great job on the sculpt and included plenty of articulation. Han includes a Removable Hood, Goggles, and Blaster. As for the Tauntaun he just includes a removable saddle.
If I had to nitpick about anything, it would be that Han's Hood is a bit short and the base of his neck can be seen while wearing the hood. I also wish the Tauntaun saddle had a bit more detail. Other then that they are a great looking pair.
A definite buy if your into the 6" scale. Enjoy all the new HD Pics!
