I continue to marvel at the Star Wars juggernaut. I can’t think of a single other toy franchise that consistently produces all possible toys even tangentially related to the original product and that includes Star Trek. From minor characters to the Star Wars extended universe, Hasbro continues to satisfy the desires of Star Wars most dedicated fans. I smiled when I saw this latest line of action figures. Hasbro has once again mined the depths of the Star Wars universe to add more unique product to a series of action figures that has far surpassed 1000 at this point. Above is a picture of the latest characters, which can only be found on the deleted scenes section of the Star Wars Blu-Ray discs. You can see some of the scenes that these new figures were based on in the trailer for the Bly-Ray set.

From cooltoyreview, Drop everything you are doing and follow this link for your chance to bid on one of the rarest action figures you'll ever see. The Black Hole Humanoid figure, released by Mego in 1979, seldom goes up for auction, and never are they complete. The Humanoid linked above is complete with its cloak and booties, and it is all original! This figure was only available in Canada and Italy at the tail end of the line's production run.
Go here for the auction
