Because you love this kind of stuff, I've got some impressions of Hasbro Star Wars The Vintage Collection Wave 6 for you! This new batch of figures started shipping to online stores just after Toy Fair, meaning you can either grab them online or hunt them down in your favorite-- or least-favorite-- local stores. What does the first truly mixed wave of new, non-repainted figures have for you? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,493

For some reason, Hasbro opted to put this Clone Trooper with a vehicle rather than separately, making it tough to army-build.  Matching Snow Captain Rex, this figure comes with a Freeco Bike-- and it's pretty cool. (Get it?)  Anyway, should you get one?  Read on!

From the distant future, it's Luke Skywalker!  This one is based on the novels from the far-flung future of a galaxy far, far away where Chewbacca is dead and everybody's got kids.  How did this figure turn out?  Read on!

Fresh from the newspaper strips, the Blackhole Stormtrooper finally got a Hasbro action figure last year.  Sort of.  In name only, at least-- missing are the white/silver lenses, but at least it's black.  Oh wait, it's really dark blue?  Hunh.  Well, read on!

It's new!  Major Mianda was shown to not be a clone in the trading card game a few years ago, but this figure has the traditional clone head.  Ah well.  Is it good, or at least different enough to be interesting?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,489

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 28, 2011

Hey kids, it's R2-D2! This is the one based on the R4-G9 mold and, depending on where you lived, was in a hard-to-get Battle Pack with Luke, C-3PO, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.  Should you get them?  Read on!

This particular ARC Trooper has yellow markings, and came with Master Sev.  Who's Master Sev? Why, he's the Jedi that this ARC Trooper killed in the comics.  Is it worth picking up this unique warrior?  Read on!

Clone Wars Army of the Republic Battle Pack Hits

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 24, 2011

New!  More or less.  The Army of the Republic Battle Pack has 4 Clone Troopers, based on the 2009 revision of the figure.  (Which is to say, the basic 2008-2009 body with the resculpted basic helmet.   But what figures do you get?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,486

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 23, 2011

I know what you want.  Major Panno probably isn't it, but as a figure he's quite good.  The level of detail is excellent, there's a little pouch on his cloak, and it's a nice sculpt too.  So if you get him, now you've got two members of his species in the modern line-- and he's the best!  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 21, 2011

What's the best way to come down from Toy Fair? Let's look at something old. The Han Solo with gunner station wasn't a big seller.  It even got dumped in the Big Clearance of 2000.  Was it even neat for its time?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,483

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, February 18, 2011

It's almost dirty!  The first-ever Labria action figure has since been repainted, but there's no denying the intrigue around a first-release.  Or rather, there wouldn't be if there weren't thousands of the things.  Is it any good?  Read on!

Toy Fair: Best In Show

By Mike — Thursday, February 17, 2011

Another cold, wintery Toy Fair is behind us, and while we understand the reasons behind having it in New York in February, there has to be some workaround where we aren't under a blizzard warning every year and don't have to explain to our spouses or significant others why Valentine's Day for a toy geek actually falls the next Saturday after Toy Fair. But we digress.
