In less wince-worthy toy stuff, get up close and personal with the repackaged Comic Packs, as well as the news ones such as Darth Krayt & Sigel Dare, Lumiya & Luke, Beefy the Vong & Kyle Katarn and the news-to-me Emperor’s Hand Imperial Shuttle.

Other than collect action figures?
StarWars.com’s Pete Vilmur takes a look at the horrific girl-oriented merchandise of the 70′s. Sadly, things haven’t improved that much in 30 years. (Well, the dolls are nicer, but good luck finding a female one.)

Way back in November we spotted Adriean Koleric’s HERD, featuring repainted and altered AT-ATs and other familiar figures. His show wraps up on Saturday, so head to his site or under the cut for more pictures. (more…)

After the madness of April Fool’s, the inflatable starships and Death Star beach ball really don’t get much more than a shrug. Hell, they’re actually kind of adorable… And I really don’t know where else to tell you I saw the kites at Sam’s Club for $20. $20!

Yes ladies and gentlemen, for a mere $3,500, a
complete set of original trilogy Kenner figures could be yours. Or, you could spend it on something legitimately cool. (Personally, I’d go for a really sweet Mac. And maybe a print of the Kenners.) Your choice. (via)

Here are some of the things I’ve micro-blogged over @clubjade in the past few days.
Simplicity itself. The most surprising thing about this figure is that they haven’t actually tried to market it yet.
Internet famous. I get the feeling I would appreciate this #SXStarWars craze more if my time moderating message boards hadn’t given me a complete disdain for line-by-line thread games.
Bad bad bad, wrong wrong wrong. Topless Robot has a regular feature called Fan Fiction Friday, where he rightfully skewers awful (usually ‘erotic’) fanfic. This week’s selection? A Jacen/Leia fic called ‘Sexual Situations.’ Yes, it’s awful. Yes, it’s explicit. But there’s snark! Still, if you click through that link, don’t you dare say I didn’t warn you.
Cleanse your brain. Star Wars lunchbag art!

- Photo fun Adventures in Stormtrooping with a little help from The Simpsons, Cobra Commander, Hellboy and a very naughty Wall-E.
- The blogside: John Scalzi theorizes that George wants to release Star Wars in 3-D to beat Gone With the Wind in the all-timers. Seems a bit of a reach to me: If that was the case, why all this waiting? Has George seen Coraline?
- Cake: Bearded Obi-Wan is full of… Strawberry jam? I’m sure there’s a Spaceballs joke in there somewhere.
- Travels: Yoda sees the world.

Both StarWars.com and Rebelscum are covering the reveals heavily… I can’t even begin to catch up at this point! Above, a Dagobah Frog Habitat from Uncle Milton, another ‘Seriously?’ item from the brains behind the Force Trainer.
UPDATE: More Force Trainer action at Gizmodo.

Star Wars has been named the #1 toy license for 2008, thanks to sales that exceed $450 million: It was the year’s most popular licensed toy property. The success of The Force Unleashed and the appearance of 14 Star Wars titles on New York Times bestseller list contributed as well. And StarWars.com has seen a 30% jump in site traffic.
