Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,393

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 15, 2010

The only R5-X2 so far is this RC toy, only sold in the USA at Target.  It was kinda pricey, but it is fun and pretty cool.  Should you get one?  Read on!

Image Bank: CW32 Boba Fett

By Mike — Friday, October 15, 2010

He's juvenile! He's delinquent! He's young Boba Fett! Re-introduced in Season 2 of The Clone Wars, the young bounty hunter in training is going through his own rites of passage. The figure is incredibly done, with the good likeness and articulation that we've come to expect from this line.

It looks like collectors will be spending a lot of dough this week. Besides the new slew of Target exclusives, Toys R Us is also receiving the latest vehicles which include the Hyena Bomber, AT-AP, AAT, and Swamp Speeder. Mickey Gunslinger sends in his find from Chandler, AZ yesterday. Open up those wallets and Happy Weekend Hunting! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,392

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 14, 2010

Oh Denal, we hardly knew ye-- but we do know that ye suit should be coming back on another figure soon!  This Clone Trooper has a unique helmet and a nice rocket pack, but the head is not much to speak of.  Should you check him out?  Read on!

Image Bank: CW31 Shaak Ti

By Mike — Wednesday, October 13, 2010

 This figure is simply stunning, with soft goods that work with the super articulation underneath. We do have concerns about the long term viability of the soft goods skirt as it seems prone to unraveling, but it lays well and complements the figure overall. VC31 Shaak Ti is the latest addition to our Image Bank. Post your thoughts in our comment box!  

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,391

It's rare to see evolution take place right before your eyes, but you can do that with these Clone Trooper figures.  (OK, not really.)  He can be a pilot or a trooper-- it's all up to you!  Just pick a helmet and presto, new figure.  How many should you buy?  Read on!

Image Bank: CW29 Mandalorian Warrior

By Mike — Wednesday, October 13, 2010

 With the recently released Battle Pack, you may think that there would be ample supply of Mandalorian Warriors for everyone. But don't fool yourself. This guy will be hot to move off the pegs. View all the detailed photos in our Image Bank and be sure to post your comments!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,390

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Hey kids, it's Embo!  He showed up at my place over the weekend (thank you Entertainment Earth), and he's got a nice hat-- and some knives, and an articulated bowcaster.  He's really well done.  Check him out, won't you?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,389

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 11, 2010

Crawling through the mud is good fun for a Clone Trooper but when it isn't posed to do anything else... is it any good?  This limited-articulation figure came in a cheap 3-pack.  Is it worth buying?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,388

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 8, 2010

Hasbro's first attempt at a non-R2-D2 astromech droid form was one of its best.  The then-nameless Astromech Droid later christened R2-R9 had a light-up light (rather than the eyeport, which never lights up) and tons of articulation with no ugly action features to get in the way.  In 1999, it was beautiful-- and it's still
