And speaking of 3.75" super-articulated action figures, I highly suggest you check out the last two Q&A sessions by Adam Pawlus at Galactic Hunter. As someone who works in the actual industry to a degree or two, I found these last two installments particularly honest and revealing. A strong proponent of 5POA and the latest products that Hasbro has on tap, it appears that Mr. Pawlus was a little more transparent about his feelings about what is going on in the Hasbro line. He uses 3.75" generically (5POA and SA), so try not to read into things one way or another unless specifically identified, but there are some fantastic points made. They're MUST-READS, guaranteed. THIS WEEK'S can be found HERE. LAST WEEK'S can be found HERE.

Check out the latest edition of Cantina Chatter, the official podcast of Victoria's Cantina (a favorite friend of JTA). I was honored to be asked to discuss the results of NY International Toy Fair this year and what the response has been to what was shown. We also talk about the state of 3.75" super-articulated action figures, 6" figures and if Hasbro is doing right by the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. Check it all out by clicking the link below.

Our good friend Jayson Krebsbach from Yakface.com was featured on a new podcast entitled Toy Run recently. A man who in our opinion typically speaks softly but carries a big stick; it was especially neat to hear so much candor with regards to his personal background in Star Wars collecting as well as gaining a deeper understanding of Yakface.com. The rich legacy and history of his site has left an indelible mark on the collecting community and its impact has been felt by so many within it that collect Star Wars collectibles. We highly suggest you check it out!

A few items have begun shipping from Entertainment Earth today, including The Black Series [Phase II] Darth Vader and the Entertainment Earth exclusive Star Wars Desert Assault Walker with Figure.
Although we often share different opinions from one another, I wanted to take a moment and honor the massive body of work by colleague Adam Pawlus. He has added more to the Star Wars collecting community than perhaps you realize. Not only is this the 20 year anniversary of The Power Of The Force "2" line, this month also celebrates 20 years of Adam's contributions to Star Wars fans... while he was a youngster. Without him, many people on the fan sites you currently read wouldn't be here, me included. Thank you Adam for the tremendous and selfless additions you have made to the hobby. Read about his rich history (as well as getting death threats) by clicking through.
Happy 15th birthday/anniversary to our friends at colleagues at Sandtroopers.com! Click through for more!
Despite some server issues which hopefully have completely passed, our friends at Yakface.com are back and better than ever. Be sure to check out their revamped site. Looking good guys!

Happy 10th anniversary to Wookieepedia! They wanted to let you know about the 10-year anniversary of Wookieepedia, a chronicle of all-things “Star Wars” launched through Wikia, which was this past Wednesday, March 4.

The site has been wildly popular, and with this turning out to be “The Year of Star Wars,” Wikia is doing some really exciting things, including a Qwizards contest in conjunction with Lucasfilm at Star Wars Celebration (April 16-19).
