Image Bank: CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer

By Mike — Saturday, October 2, 2010

Serve the public trust. Protect the innocent. Uphold the law. Yes, CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer sorta reminds us of this guy. As with most Clone Wars designed action figures, the sculpt is true to the series. While the limited articulation in the legs holds this figure back from a poseability standpoint, the shield/firing missile launcher combo is a nice touch.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,383

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 1, 2010

It's a fact: Pit Droid figures are great.  In 1999 and 2000, Hasbro really cranked them out with several in the USA and six more being, for the time, temporary exclusives.  This one came from a 2-pack sold in North America-- how is it?  Read on!
 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,382

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 30, 2010

What would C-3PO look like if he had a torso storage bin and a laser finger?  Probably a lot like I-5YQ here, a Wal-Mart exclusive from about a year ago. The figure combines new parts with the limbs from 4-LOM, and the end result is a pretty distinctive looking robot.  Do you need one?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,381

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 29, 2010

You saw the son, now see the father!  Anakin Skywalker in his cold gear isn't quite as snappy as Hoth Luke, but hey, it's pretty good.  How does this frozen Jedi stack up?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,380

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Back in 2004, this Hoth Luke Skywalker was pretty amazing.  Ball jointed shoulders?  A lightsaber with a removable blade?  A snow base, and the means by which to hang upisde-down? Marvelous. He's still the best-sculpted, but is there room for a new one in 2010?  Read on!

Image Bank: CW08 Pre Vizsla

By Mike — Monday, September 27, 2010

VC08 Pre Vizsla is next up in our Image Bank. The leader of the Death Watch comes well equipped with double WESTAR-35 blaster pistols and a darksaber that will lead that newly released Mandalorian Warrior Battle Pack quite nicely. Make sure to post your comments!

By Mike — Monday, September 27, 2010

Our buddies at Yakface.com report a variant with the SL06 Darth Vader. First released with the BD08 sculpt, recent findings show a helmeted 500th Vader version now hitting the pegs. Happy Hunting!

As Neil Hamburger might say, "Here's one you'll like."  The Mandalorian Warrior is a 2010 release from a new Battle Pack. This one is the "enhanced" one with special gauntlets and a firing rocket pack.  What's not to like?  It's fantastic.  Get one. And read on!

Image Bank: Foil Chase Updates

By Mike — Sunday, September 26, 2010

We have updated our Image Bank with Vintage Collection Foil Cards (Ultimate Galactic Hunt) for your viewing pleasure.One more foil to update, and that's Darth Sidious, who has proven to be the most elusive for this hunter so far. Enjoy!

Image Bank: VC11 Cloud Car Pilot

By Mike — Sunday, September 26, 2010

VC11 Cloud Car Pilot catches us up in our Vintage Collection Image Bank. This version of the pilot shares the same design schematic as the vintage version. What it doesn't share is the groovy stache so hip in Disco era Cloud City fashion. We're hoping for a running change head variant for a little more diversity in our Bespin aerial security detail.

Figure of the Day: Day 1,378

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 24, 2010

A new version is coming, but this R2-D2 Bartender comes straight from 2004.  At the time, this was an above-average figure with a good amount of gear, and from the look of things the new version Hasbro has in the works is way better. But is the original good enough?  Read on!

Image Bank: TRU Exclusive Nikto Guard

By Mike — Friday, September 24, 2010

Now available in Toys R Us stores and online, the TRU exclusive Nikto Guard Puko Naga has been added to our Image Bank. A great figure overall, it does receive a negative point for lack of knee and ankle articulation. As an army or squad builder and at a premium of $10.99, we couldn't ask for anything less.

Image Bank: VC10 4-LOM

By Mike — Friday, September 24, 2010

It's back to the future for VC10 4-LOM, where you play a slight premium for the retro vintage card and nothing else, like the coin from the 2007 TAC release. He's today's addition in our Image Bank. Please post your comments!
