Posted by: Dan Curto | 18 May 2013 | 3:20 EDT Sandwatch Guide: FA-4 (Count Dooku's Pilot Droid) For your viewing pleasure, here's a special review and gallery of the canceled "Build-A-Droid" FA-4 (Count Dooku's Pilot Droid)! Originally planned to be part of a new incarnation of the popular "Droid Factory" series, this figure excited some fans because it was the only ONLY brand-new, never-before-made character in the first 2 waves. However, due to recent changes in all things Star Wars, the line was canceled, shuffled, and several announced figures have not yet found a home....including this one. However, I've been able to acquire a sample anyway, so be sure to get more details and photos after the jump. Enjoy!
Gentle Giant takes over this week's Brian's Toys Newsletter. Not only is the 12" Jumbo Yoda (Orange Snake) in stock, but new pre-orders are available for the recently-announced 12" Jumbo Zuckuss and the long-awaited Star Wars chess set.

A new series of Sandwatch Guide updates begin today with the Toys-"R"-Us exclusive Droid Attack On The Coronet multipack.

Based on an episode of THE CLONE WARS TV show, this set marks the debut of 501st Legion Clone Troopers Mixer and Redeye. Despite the slightly inaccurate helmets, these figures are musts for clone collectors. But the true star in this set is the Spider Assassin Droid, which includes multiple points of articulation, plus a removable head that reveals a trio of drones! More details and photos after the jump. Enjoy!
