RebelScum reports that among their rebooted Evolution will be three sets that contain EU figures – Evolution of the Jedi will have a NJO Luke Skywalker, Evolution of the Sith (#2?) contains Darths Bane and Nihilus, and Evolution of the Fetts will have a Mandalore figure. (Looks like KOTOR era, but I could be wrong.)
Also spotted at Hasbro: Yoda & Kybuck, shirtless Anakin from the (first) Clone Wars cartoons; Darth Revan and Darth Malak from the KOTOR games and pre-cyborg Grievous and a McQuarrie concept Chewbacca.

According to the TOSblog, the August issue of Wired, devoted to how-tos, has several Star Wars features. There are instructions for adding lightsabers to videos all over the internet, but action figure arranging from Robot Chicken’s head writers might be unique. (It’s the first thing that comes up in Google, anyway.)

Is your dad a Star Wars fan? Nothing says ‘Father’s Day’ like Star Wars! One question – is there a Leia version, with the torture droid? How about Luke and Palpatine, for grandpa? Obi-Wan and Anakin for brothers? The possibilities are endless!
ETA: On the TOS.
