Wizards of the Coast has a triple threat of great new products currently available at Merlyn's.

1. Star Wars RPG: Scavenger's Guide to Droids
From the back of the book:
"From astromechs to battle droids, the Scavenger's Guide to Droids features everything you need to bring the robotic inhabitants of the Star Wars saga to life in your own campaign. Featuring an in-depth look at droids from the perspective of a variety of droid experts, this book provides a wide array of new options for droid heroes as well as allies and antagonists.

Scavenger's Guide to Droids presents a variety of options for both players and gamemasters, including:
- New droid creation and modification rules for heroic droids.
- An optional system for treating droids as equipment.
- Guidelines for how to include memorable droids in your campaign.
- New droid equipment, including dozens of accessories.
- Information on over 40 droid models, including some never-before-seen droids."

At a glance, I saw cool things like Droid Quirks (Incomplete Memory Wipe, Center of Attention, Blaster Happy), the Droideka Mark II, the Shadow Droid (w/Fear Generator modification), and new talents for droid prestige classes (Directed Action, Directed Movement, Full Control, and Remote Attack)

2. Dungeons & Dragons 4E supplement - The Plane Below: Secrets of the Elemental Chaos
From the back:
"A hotbed of adventure awaits in the rolling maelstrom of the Elemental Chaos-a tulutuous plane of primordials, titans, elementals, slaads, and demons. From the City of Brass to the githzerai monasery ofZerthadlun to the spiraling depths of the Abyss, adventure lurks behind every lava waterfall, across every icy battlefield, and beyond every raging lightning storm."

This book looks nuts. You get to deal with stuff like demon slicks, liquid thunder, and elemental transformation fields. You get to learn how to reason with a slaad. There are stats on Consumptive Swarms and Primordial Blots. Man, do I feel sorry for players whose DMs get this book. Twisted Evil

3. Axis & Allies: Pacific 1940
Essentially this is a larger-scale version of the Pacific Theater for this classic game. In addition to all the coolness that you would naturally assume this entails, there are new units introduced: mechanized infantry and tactical bombers. The most mouth-watering aspect, though, is that this game will be compatible with Axis & Allies: Europe 1940, a game that will be coming out in 2010. From the back: "Both games boards unite to create a massive 70" x 32" playing field that will let you experience the full scale of World War II global conflict!"

Yes, Santa, these products are all currently available.
