Mos Eisley News Brief: How long could Luke survive?
You thought they smelled bad on the outside?It's that time of year in Chicago if you spit, you will likely feel the ice on your tongue as it leaves your mouth. The conditions are very Hoth-like and while trying to warm up today, this article at have posed the question: How long could Luke survive in the Tauntaun? You can bet hypothermia factoring in along with surviving the night in sub-zero temperature outside the Hoth rebel base are 725 to 1 would make this a feat in itself. There is also some great info in there that will inform you what kind of "cover" the new Tauntaun sleeping bag can provide! To see how much time Han would have check out their site for the

Sandwatch Sneak Peek: New "badges" are NOT what they seem!
It appears our report from New Years Day regarding the "badges" as new pack-ins might not be what we initially thought it was. Our friends at Rebelscum have posted a report that shows us exactly where these came from. Therefore chances are these will not be the new 2010 pack-ins, and I guess we can say that is GOOD news! For more check out Rebelscum for the

Sandtrooper Huskerrod Reports:
"I just got back from the San Jacinto, California Walmart clearance aisle, which is incidentally over near lawn and garden. They have the Walmart exclusive AT-ST marked down from $43.96 to $20.00. They had about 20 units remaining. They also had the Walmart exclusive Trooper and Dewback marked down from $30.00 to $15.00 with about five units on the shelf. Get out there and grab 'em up before they are gone."

Sandwatch Sneak Peek: What the ???
What is that?!We have been forwarded another image from our ever-reliable Gorkoracing that at this time has us a bit stumped. A giant Captain Rex with electronics maybe? One thing is for sure, it's pretty big! With a tape measure, it reminds me of the old Shogun Warriors minus the wheels on the bottom. I guess I'm really showing my age now! For more check the the forums and check out the five more of the "stinkin" badges! United We Find.

Update 1/4: We have learned from our friends at that this might be a part of the "Megabattler" assortment thanks to a Target Report they've just obtained.

Sandtrooper Darth Doomy-Doom Reports:
"I hit some stores looking for a post-holiday clearance deal. I've seen reports of the Target Rancor going for $25, but I found mine for $35. Not bad, but I guess you need to shop around. More interestingly, I also found some basic figure two-packs at Target. They ring up at the price of a single figure. There were some Legends bundled, but I mostly found Cantina and ROTS wave bundles. Sweet deal. Keep your eyes open. United we find."

Sandwatch Sneak Peek: New 2010 Pack-ins?
I'd rather have a Droid any day of the week!We have been forwarded several images from our good friend Gorkoracing that we suspect are the new pack-ins for basic 2010 Hasbro figures. I'm just not sure if the badges are half as cool as the Build-a-Droid concept. For more check the the forums and let us know your thoughts on this possible change.

Sandtrooper Spotlight: Custom Millennium Falcon
The real BMF!Our forum member Rogue1 has started work on a custom Millennium Falcon over a year ago, and he's nearly completed the ramp for his massive vessel.

We look forward to seeing the final product, and who would have ever thought you'd see the BMF put to shame in terms of size! For more check out the forums to sound off your comments and the

Sandwatch Guides: Resurgence of the Jedi Battle Pack Added!
The best Hologram ever!We update our Sandwatch Guides with another Battle Pack that is showing up at retail locations throughout the galaxy. While it's no big secret my blood pressure surges nearly every time I see Hasbro doing the same thing over and over again, there's something about the Resurgence of the Jedi Battle Pack I really like. Perhaps after the wind-blown hair-don't from back in 2007, any Luke Skywalker is an improvement. Is there anything else in this set that makes it worth picking up? For more check out the latest and thanks again to Boba Binks for the Resurgence of the Sandtrooper!
