Sandwatch Guides: Resurgence of the Jedi Battle Pack Added!
The best Hologram ever!We update our Sandwatch Guides with another Battle Pack that is showing up at retail locations throughout the galaxy. While it's no big secret my blood pressure surges nearly every time I see Hasbro doing the same thing over and over again, there's something about the Resurgence of the Jedi Battle Pack I really like. Perhaps after the wind-blown hair-don't from back in 2007, any Luke Skywalker is an improvement. Is there anything else in this set that makes it worth picking up?

Area Report: The Clearance Warrior
What's in your Clearance Aisle?After numerous reports around the net and right here in our community forums, I decided to venture out and attempt to fill the numerous holes in my Clone Wars / Legacy Collections. A quick sweep of Antioch, Zion and Gurnee, IL didn't turn up much other than the Evolution sets for $12.48 and the Octuptarra Droid for $17.50. I snagged the Clone Commandos and Imperial Pilots, but held out on the Rebel sets. We'll see if those are there cheaper next week! Sadly, I didn't find any of the Walmart Droid Factory or Target Geonosis sets on sale. On a sidenote I did spot the Turbo Tank at $49.98 and the Shadow ARC-170 marked down to $45.00, which isn't a bad deal if you factor in some Clone Cash! I was really surprised to see how much stock was left at the stores I visited. Some stores didn't even have anything on sale (Target Rosemont, IL) at all! My run started on the Wisconsin border and ended just outside Chicago Midway Airport at the Bedford Park Walmart. You can bet the next couple weeks will be a great time for deals, make sure to let us know if you spot any! United We Find.

Sandtrooper dustrho Reporting In:
S.C.A.L.P. Weapons SupplierHey troopers! It was a successful mission for me as I was able to locate some new Clone Wars figures at the Walmart in Plainfield, IL. These figures were not located in their normal toy aisle location, but instead they were discovered in the seasonal area by a whole pile of last-minute-buying Christmas toys. So, you may want to check out the seasonal area at your Walmart stores to see if they have anything there, as there were about 100 figures loaded up on the shelves at mine. I walked away with the following figures, all from the Clone Wars line: Clone Tank Gunner, Padme Amidala, Clone Trooper Denal, Ziro's Assassin Droid, Matchstick and Commander Thire. There were other new ones there, but those were already a part of my collection. With that said, I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. United We Find!

Hasbro Q & A Session: Final 2009 Session
Latest Q&A from HasbroWe are happy to report we've received our latest round of questions from the high command of Hasbro for the frigid month of December. Why do you move the foot peg holes around from heel on some figures or in the arch (middle) of the foot on others? We know comic packs have had poor sales, how will this effect the throm and exar kun wave and the Wal-Mart exclusive wave? Will these still be released this year? I received and read Star Wars Legacy: Issue 41. There is some great Mando fodder in that issue! Any chance that will become a comic pack? We encourage you to log-in to the forums and check out what they had to say. We also have a set for this round for theJawa.com so make sure to check our our glowing-eyed friends too. Do you have a question for the Hasbro Q & A Team? Log-in and leave your question in the forums.
