This figure may not be the most articulated or even definitive R2-D2, but boy is he fun with all the flashing lights and electronic sounds. A repack of the Revenge of the Sith figure from 2005, this mold actually saw its first incarnation in plastic as the POTF2 Power FX R2-D2.
Hey kids, it's the new Clone Trooper figure which, oddly, is actually somewhat easy to find! He's got more articulation than ever, and comes on a nice vintage cardback. So how many can I put you down for? Read on!
Sony teams up with Hasbro to promote their Clone Wars Adventures online game. Basic The Clone Wars and Saga Legends action figure blisters are being affixed with stickers touting a 30 day trial membership and 450 Station Cash. These stickers are showing up at Toys R Us stores this week.
That's right, you heard right-- another Clone Trooper, this time a Target-specific version with a unique design on only one shoulder. I'm assuming it's a different rank or something. Are they any good? You get two in a box, so read on!
He was in the original Star Wars in the background, and now he gets to talk and be annoyed by Anakin Skywalker. Admiral Yularen was a slow seller in 2009, but now he's gone and you can't have one. Too bad. Should you be upset? Read on!
Hey kids, it's the 7th Legion Clone Trooper! Based on a concept armor, this spotted clone has a removable helmet (which was a novelty on basic carded figures in 2007) and a lot of articulation. How many does your army need? Read on!
Hey, do you know what's awesome? Anakin Skywalker in his space suit. It's a super-articulated figure with a fish bowl. This is awesome-- seriously, it's fantastic and goofy and I love it. You should own one. Read on.
As Hasbro promised, the name tab, cardback, and POP for VC13, formerly known as Anakin Skywalker, is now appropriately called Darth Vader per his transformation and appearance in Mustafar. Of course, you now have two The Vintage Collection "Darth Vaders" on the pegs, the other being VC08, but that shouldn't confuse anyone, right?
Hasbro corrected the paint error on VC15 Clone Trooper's helmet with the appropriate line around the cap. This particular sample was found at a Target store in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Offered before many of you were born, Rocket Firing Boba Fett is something of a holy grail, a legend not just in Star Wars, but in the world of toy collecting in general. The 2010 mail-in version has been changed significantly from the original design, meaning nobody should be able to pass this off as an original. Is this a pro, or a con? Read on!
This week's Toys R Us sale features 20% the Rise of Boba Fett Ultimate Battle Pack and $20 both the regular and exclusive Vintage edition AT-AT. Also on sale are the Electronic Helmets and Blasters, and the Star Wars Uncle Milton Science sets for 25% off.
Ah, the tale of two Vaders, also known as Vader's aplenty for the holiday pegs. First releasing the removable helmet figure from 2008's The Legacy Collection (BD08), Hasbro run changes it for the more ESB appropriate version from 2006's The Saga Collection. Both versions are readily available on the pegs along with the newly released The Vintage Collection figure.
Courtesy of an astute member of the Rebelscum forums, scans of the latest issue of ToyFare magazine previews the upcoming The Vintage Collection action figures of Barris Offee, Bom Vidin, Weequay, and a brand spankin new upgraded Rebel Fleet Trooper! There's also unpainted first shots of Fan's Choice favorite winner Bastila Shan and one Doctor E!.
Hasbro sure likes to make barely-different troopers, like this Scout Trooper from 2007. Hasbro put out a big exclusive boxed set at Target and painted each Biker Scout differently-- just to keep you busy. (Or to make your dioramas better, perhaps.) Either way, how is it? Excellent. Read on, dudes!
