Mara Jade

The 6-inch version of Boba Fett released in the second wave of figures from Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series was surprisingly hard to find for me.

I never quite got the reason Hasbro decided to make this the first version of Princess Leia to appear as part of their Star Wars Black Series 6-inch figure line.

Qui-Gon Jinn & Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi Force)

It has been rather quiet on the Star Wars collectible front lately, so I picked up this Playskool set featuring the heroes from Star Wars Episode I, Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Super Battle Droid (Clone Wars)

The Geonosian-made Super Battle Droids were something of a surprise back when Episode II came out, being tougher and more ruthless than their cheaper cousins. They were also much less memorable because they absolutely lacked any hint of a personality.
