Okay, now I'm totally confused about Dannik

Dannik is from A New Hope according to my research, but these 2 figures look different. Could it be that one of them is mislabeled? Either way it means that I still need to pick him up for my cantina. God, I had bad luck at Toy Vault 1. First of all, they closed down the sports/comic book side of Toy Vault, it's now all conflated and is a shadow of its former self. The guy behind the counter was a total dick and when I asked him if Toy Vault was going to be "okay" he didn't even look up but mumbled "don't know". When I asked him what happened to the other side he said, "Toxic spill" to be a jerk. Jerk.

The figures I need to complete my cantina

I've been actively attempting to acquire every creature cantina figure ever made for my vintage canatina playset. From what I can tell, these are the only one I still need to pick up. Toy Vault 2 didn't have them but I'm going to check vault 1 this week. I think I passed on them originally because they were part of the "cheap" looking Hasbro figure trend. Now I'm kicking myself.

I like, I like!

UNKL Brand is debuting their first HazMaPo figure at the New York Comic Con. The 12" figures, designed by Kow Yokoyama, will be available for purchase at the Toy Tokyo booth, but with only 250 available, they aren't likely to last long

It's time to put aside money concerns and snap up any of the JLU figures you need. I hate buying those 3-packs for one figure but we might have another Power of the Force on our hands here,

"It seems that the JLU line is tanking, and Mattel is planning to refocus the line in a last ditch attempt to save it. I guess the cancellation of the series has had a negative effect...or perhaps it's the all-too-often repackaging of the core characters in EVERY wave!"

This is exactly what I want. I want to get four of the new Lego Clone Battle Packs, which is what this guy got. But I can't find any! The one time I was at a Target that had had them, they were all gone. All the other new sets were there, along with a tantalizing price tag on the empty section of shelf.

Worse, I looked them up on the Lego Shopping website, and it said backorders would ship no later than July. JULY??!!

Of course, this just proves that this is what the Lego fans have been drooling for all along. If Lego is smart, they'll do the same for the Stormtroopers.
