He's new!  It's Bom Vimdin which is apparently the current official spelling of this guy, who's a really cool Cantina alien that Hasbro absolutely smashed out of the park. Good things come to those who wait... 34 years.  Read on!

Packaged as Ace-38 but often referred to as AC-38, this new action figure is at Disney parks now and is part of those $39.95 boxed sets the kids are all crazy about.  Is it worth it?  I think so.  Read on!

If you like orange troopers, this Clone Trooper Lieutenant was one you should've bought last year-- mostly because you can't get one easily today.  It has a swell hook launcher which doesn't actually launch.  It's still pretty cool-- read on!

New Hasbro Star Tours Figure Packs Out at Disney Parks

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 9, 2011

The new Star Tours action figure sets are at the Disney parks right now.  These new Hasbro action figure gift sets each sport at least 4 action figures plus new accessories.  Some are better than others, and they're $39.95 each.  (My pal Shannon was kind enough to pick mine up from Disneyland.)  More details after the jump from someone who hasn't been on the new ride yet. UPDATE: Called out "differences" on repackaged figures.

Hey kids, it's the super-cool Rohlan Dyre figure! He has a lot of gear, a lot of armor, and a lot of not being in a store near you.  Should you get this Mandalorian?  Read on!

One of the fascinating things about this hobby is that, at times, Hasbro will pluck an obscure movie character from the film and drop it in the toy aisles, like General McQuarrie here. Fans weren't asking for him, but we got him-- and he's neat!  Read on!

One of the best repaints out if Hasbro's Original Trilogy Collection line were the Jawas.  The 1997 2-pack got a fresh coat of paint in 2004, and it looked fantastic.  The packaging was great, too!  Does it hold up to more modern sculpts?  Read on!

Hasbro's wildly popular Wave 7 of The Vintage Collection is shipping to (and from) online stores like Entertainment Earth and Big Bad Toy Store today, so if you pre-ordered, check your order status.  (They should be hitting stores shortly.)  Last week @EntEarth on Twitter (which is me) confirmed wave 8 and wave 8 revision 1 of TVC have been delayed until October, but pre-orders are open now.

Don't feel blue, because Aayla Secura is here!  She's about as good as it gets for movie versions of the character... the cartoon one is probably the best so far, though.  So how about this one from 2005?  Read on!

It's R5-P9!  After years of waiting, you can finally get Ekelarc Yong's Astromech Droid.  Who the hell is Ekelarc Yong?  Well, that's the big question.  But here's his robot!  Aren't you excited?  Probably not, but it's a nice looking robot.  Read on!

While I listen to this awesome cover of "Tricky" as done by Knodel, you can read about the Battle Droid Commander.  It has some of the best deco ever applied to this mold, but it's still the same friggin' mold for the bazillionth time.  Is it worth it?  Read on!

Summer is basically here, so let's look at the hottest figure of 2003 with the Clone Trooper.  This was the one that basically spawned everything about what's right and wrong with the figures today-- lots of articulation, but he was also really tough to get.  Read on!

While this Battle Droid is labeled a driver for the AAT, it looks like he's ready for jungle combat.  It's basically the same mold you've been used to, but different.  Is it worth getting?  Read on!
