Looks like Bandai finished March on a high note by releasing a bunch of new Gundam stuff as well as their continued Sentai domination. Plus game cards keep being big sellers and... Star Wars?
Here's the ranking:
Probably won't be as an expensive as a real diamond Clone Trooper, but it still won't be cheap Pop!s won't be the only exclusives that Funko will be bringing to Star Wars Celebration 2015, as the company also intends to sell FOUR Premium Hikari at the event: "Star" Clone Trooper, "Icey" Storm Trooper (not to be confuse... read feature

The decision was said to be made in regards to the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. The re-release... read feature
New York Toy Fair gave Lego a platform to show off its new (and long rumored) Ultimate Collector Series TIE Fighter. I would assume it's taken this long to produce the regular TIE Fighter because of its enormous wings/ends. T... read

Fans will recall this droid as having been used ... read feature

Now in Low Definition SDCC and WonFes may have been almost a month ago at this point, but many of its collectibles are still on our minds. Tian recently posted the top ten things he was looking forward to from these cons and, because I'm far more excitably (and exceedingly less orderly), my own highlights list is nowhere near that short.
See many of my favorites after the jump. read feature
