Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,060: 212th Battalion Clone Trooper (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I know what you're thinking  - didn't you buy a Vintage 212th Battalion Clone Trooper just about two years ago?  Yes, but this one is just different enough to make you mad!  New damage markings and slightly different orange patterning await you on this exclusive Droid Factory figure which now uses the 2011 Vintage Clone body, which the previous version did not.  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,059: Sun Fac (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 18, 2013

Did you know you needed another Sun Fac? Neither did I.  This Amazon-exclusive 2013 release is a redeco of the 2006 pegwarmer original, which would surely have poisoned the pegs.  As such, we're all happy to see it online.  It has fewer accessories than the original, lacks the eye scar, and has slightly different deco.  Is the new release worth it?  Read on! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,058: Black Squad TIE Pilot (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 15, 2013

What's new with the Black Squad TIE Pilot, Amazon's exclusive Droid Factory figure? Not much.  The highlights are the inclusion of the rectangular gun which recalls the Kenner original, and the fact that the figure has not two, but one Imperial logo on his helmet.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,057: Battle Droid (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 14, 2013

Did we need another Battle Droid, even if it's based on the exceptional Vintage design from 2012?  Probably not - the figure, despite being cool, has proven unpopular in its various toy forms.  Amazon's exclusive version includes a TC-70 part, which makes it much more essential for your toy box.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,056: FA-4 (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Let's look at FA-4, the sole newly-tooled figure in Amazon's Legacy/Droid Factory boxed set.  I'm pleased to report that it's pretty great - expensive, sure, but such is life these days for the Star Wars collector.  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,055: Sandtrooper (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 12, 2013

If this Amazon-exclusive Droid Factory Sandtrooper looks vaguely familiar, it should - Hasbro dusted off the really cool 2012 release, changed the pauldron, altered the mud, and gave him a droid part.  And presto! New figure.  At retail odds are you'd be swarming to get this, but as part of an online exclusive set with no real cohesion, it's probably going to be collector-only.  Ah well! You're missing out.  Read on!

Quick Rundown: Amazon Vintage Hasbro Star Wars TIE Interceptor Vehicle

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 13, 2013

So I got the new Amazon Exclusive Vintage Collection TIE Interceptor here, and the big question I've been hearing - a lot - is "is it different?" The answer is yes, actually - the plastic color is different enough from other movie versions of the ship to be notable, so let's find out more.

Hasbro Star Wars The Vintage Collection Amazon Slave I Fix - Just Screw It

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 13, 2013

After almost a year of waiting since it was teased at Celebration VI in Orlando last year, we finally started to get our Amazon exclusive The Vintage Collection jumbo Slave I vehicle. It's 20-inches long, almost 50% bigger than the previous releases of Boba's vehicle, and has more features than ever. One of these features is a rotating wings and a gravity-centered pilot's station inside the cockpit, and in the 2010 The Clone Wars Rise of Boba Fett Battle Pack it worked great. This new version needs some work - a bad spring prevents things from locking properly. Want to fix it? Go get a Phillips head screwdriver, an old clicky pen, and read on.
