Hasbro's Star Wars Celebration V Slideshow

The greatest Star Wars convention in the 12 systems is going on RIGHT NOW, so we thought we'd bring a little bit of the plastic action home to you. Hasbro had their collector panel at the event and ran a slide show containing all the goodness hitting stores now and for the foreseeable future. Those who have seen the slides from San Diego Comic Con will note that this show has some new bits and pieces, so for YOU, we've delivered the info in two ways.

1. is via our Flickr account, where we've posted every slide individually so you can click as you like.
2. is as a YouTube video where you can watch the slides in HD, set to music, and hit pause when you feel the need to drooool.

For those who not well versed in the world of Star Wars plastics but are now tempted to buy their favorite bounty hunter, score the points needed for a Rocket Firing Boba Fett or score a killer vehicle, here's some info behind the pictures...

- The first waves of new Clone Wars, Saga Legends and Vintage figures including Hoth Han Solo, Dengar, Bossk (that lizard guy who isn't a sleestax), Greedo, Snowspeeder Luke and the HUGE Kul Teska Guard from Clone Wars: The Republic Heroes Video Game, exclusive to Toys R Us
- The colossal, 2 foot AT-AT!! Two levels, lights, sounds and a speeder that shoots out its butt. I'll be making mine a little bed and read him stories before he goes to sleep every night.
- The Cloud Car, Remote Controlled Hailfire Droid, Luke Skywalker's Snow Speeder
- Boba Fett's Electronic Helmet!! You must own this. Don't lie.
