The Clone Wars

Image Bank: CW24 Jungle Camo ARF Trooper

By Mike — Wednesday, October 6, 2010

A repaint of last year's "clean" release (and this year's re-release), CW24 Jungle Camo ARF Trooper offers nothing new except the cool camouflage paint deco based on his appearance in The Clone Wars theatrical film. And for this, we recommend picking up a couple. Make sure to post your comments!

Image Bank: CW23 Kit Fisto

By Mike — Tuesday, October 5, 2010

A vast improvement from last year's release, CW23 Kit Fisto is another great figure in the 2010 Clone Wars assortment. Hasbro gives him well articulated legs and ankles this time along with a soft goods skirt so he can easily fit into the cockpit of his new Walmart exclusive Jedi Starfighter. Not surprisingly, Kit has been one of the harder to find at least in this reporter's area. Don't hesitate to pick him up of you see him. Make sure to post your comments! 

Image Bank: CW11 Aurra Sing

By Mike — Monday, October 4, 2010

A wonderfully executed figure with the perfect sculpt and great articulation, CW11 Aurra Sing is the best yet, and if you haven't picked her up, you need to. A brand new super articulated sculpt that is evolutions above her POTJ and Saga iterations, Sing is a pasty yet sexy volatile piece of plastic. If we were to nitpick, an additional dead Jedi lightsaber would have been fantastic. Please post your comments on the bounty hunter! 

Image Bank: CW10 General Grievous

By Mike — Saturday, October 2, 2010

You can now have your Separatist commander hard-boiled or deep fried. Hasbro retooled the previous TCW versions and gave him additional articulation (especially in the legs), interchangeable battle damage parts, new head sculpt, but alas, less ambidexterity and fire power. CW10 General Grievous may be the best  TCW version yet, but if there's one complaint, it's that his shoulder plates do not stay on and we recommend keeping the rubber bands on the hands because they are not sculpted well enough to grip those sabers.

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.

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! 

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: CW28 Clone Pilot Goji

By Mike — Thursday, September 23, 2010

The Y-Wing Pilot from the Battle of Malastare is next up on our Image Bank. CW28 Clone Pilot Goji is a nice nod to "Gojira" or Godzilla to you Westerners. His helmet even bears the markings of the Japanese super lizard. 

Image Bank: CW26 Flamethrower Clone Trooper

By Mike — Tuesday, September 21, 2010

The all new CW26 Flamethrower Clone Trooper may not be what J. Geils had in mind, but who's to argue? Along with two types of flame accessories, you get a stand and die to play your Galactic Battle Game. Don't forget to send in your POP's for the Sergeant Bric mailaway!

Image Bank: CW25 Ki-Adi-Mundi

By Mike — Tuesday, September 21, 2010
