Whether you’re old enough to remember the old black and silver Star Wars figure cases or just looking for a retro take on the beloved characters of George Lucas’ Universe, you might enjoy the latest series of vintage-style 3.75-inch figures!
They’re the third series of figures released this year and can be purchased individually or as a complete set for collectors. Look for Bespin Han (Ep V), Bariss Offee (Ep 3), Rebel Fleet Trooer (Ep IV), Bom Vindin (Ep IV), ARC Trooper Commander and Logray (Ep VI) in this wave.
And there’s an extra bonus out there for Star Wars fans–if they’re also into Call of Duty. 1up has the news…
One of the great things about PC games is the mod community. Total conversion mods, in particular, can breathe new life into games long after you would expect them to be dead. Whether or not Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare would fall into that class of games or not, now is as good a time as any to pick up the Infinity Ward FPS. BlackMonkeys.de has just recently released the final version (1.0) of its Galactic Warfare mod that turns CoD4 into a Star Wars first-person shooter.
It was created by more than a dozen individuals over the past two-and-a-half years. As its ModDB page explains, it all started with the creation of a blaster model and has since become a mod filled with Star Wars characters, locations, and weapons.
Seven maps (Mos Eisly, Bespin, Bestine, Not A Cave, Jundland, Jundland Dusk, and Anchorhead) are included and even killstreaks are Star Wars-themed, such as the Y-Wing and Tie bomber.
As luck would have it, one of Steam’s daily deals today is for Call of Duty 4. The Game of the Year Edition is half price ($9.99) until Wednesday at 10am Pacific. You can buy it here and download the mod at ModDB or FilePlanet. If you need help installing the mod, a man with a thick German accent is happy to instruct you on how to do so here.
