Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,711

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 4, 2012

It was late, but Clone Trooper Buzz finally started appearing at Wal-Mart late last year. (A couple of DVD 2-packs are still missing.) This green figure ain't bad-- but should you go  buy him?  Read on!

By Mike — Wednesday, January 4, 2012

Walmart also began putting out Wave 1 of the Class 2 Vehicles this evening which incude re-issues of the Sith Infiltrator, AAT, Anakin's Podracer, and Sebulba's Podracer. We've taken some front and back boxed photos for your perusal. These were found at a Walmart store in San Diego.

Target Setting Up For 2012 Launch

By Mike — Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Target stores are preparing for the Star Wars 2012 toy launch with a new aisle display. While it looks fantastic, it only makes us giddy for new merchandise and the January 30th street date! Please send us news of your finds as now is the time to hunt the stores. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,710

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 3, 2012

It's another Han Solo!  This unfrozen version was sold at Toys R Us a few years ago, and it's a mishmash of some of the better figures from the time.  Is it worth it?  Read on!

Walmart Has New Deluxe Vehicles

By Mike — Monday, January 2, 2012

New product is trickling in to stores for the New Year. We found the new wave of Deluxe Class 1 Vehicles at a Walmart in San Diego, CA. This wave includes the Naboo Royal Fighter with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Sith Speeder with Darth Maul, Barc Speeder with Clone Trooper, and STAP with Battle Droid. Happy Hunting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,709

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 2, 2012

It's the mail-in Prototype Boba Fett!  It's loosely based on the original costume made by Lucas' camp, with some changes because Hasbro had to work within the confines of an existing mold.  Is it worth the seven bucks?  Read on!

Image Bank: VC62 Han Solo (Revenge)

By Mike — Monday, January 2, 2012

This Han Solo features a redeco of the 2006 figure from the Shield Generator Assault Battle Pack . Overall, it's a good package since it offers a decent figure carded in the classic Kenner cardback and character photo. The paint job on this Han is improved from the Battle Pack version, giving him a much better likeness.

Image Bank: VC54 ARC Trooper Commander (Captain Fordo)

By Mike — Monday, January 2, 2012

The first figure in an Expanded Universe Vintage card is quite possibly the best of 2011. Hasbro does pretty much everything you could possibly want for ARC-77, based on the more popular episodes of the Tartakovsky micro-series. He's got interchangeable Phase I and II armor, a unique headsculpt (with a faux hawk and soul patch nonetheless!), and even comes with an instruction insert to show you how to attach both holsters.

Image Bank: VC65 TIE Fighter Pilot (Revenge)

By Mike — Sunday, January 1, 2012

This TIE Pilot figure was first released in the Evolutions set from 2008 and has been re-issued several times since. For carded collectors, this means collecting both the Revenge and Return variants and you gotta appreciate the retro Kenner beauty of both. 

Happy New Year!

By Mike — Saturday, December 31, 2011

Team Galactic Hunter wishes you and yours a Happy, Safe, and Prosperous New Year! We're looking forward to all the new stuff coming up as the Star Wars franchise continues to grow and evolve with The Clone Wars series and 3D re-releases. Look for our Toy Fair coverage in February as Hasbro further unveils what they have planned in 2012 and beyond. Will The Vintage Collection continue? What's the next marquee vehicle?

Image Bank: VC28 Wedge Antilles

By Mike — Saturday, December 31, 2011

A holdover from 2010, Wedge trickled in limited quantities over the summer and demanded a higher premium before Hasbro made him a little more readily available in later assortments in the fall and promises to re-issue him again in 2012. Hasbro utilizes X-wing Luke's body from 2006 along with that figure's hole for a lightsaber hilt. It's a decent head likeness of Red 2 that deserves a spot in your collection...if you can find him. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,708

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 30, 2011

Oh Todo 360. We first heard about him from an early figure listing which didn't come to include him-- but we got him later, and he's pretty cool. (Only his head moves, though.)  Should you bring the Seth Green robot home? Read on!

Hasbro Fighter Pods: Micro Heroes, Mega Battles

By Mike — Friday, December 30, 2011

First previewed at New York Comic-Con, Hasbro launches their new micro sized Fighter Pods figurine page. With over 100 Fighter Pods figures from all six Star Wars films and The Clone Wars animated series, you can collect an entire galaxy of your favorite characters!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,707

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 29, 2011

Another Geonosian Warrior came out with the new version of Delta Squad, which may be in stock at a Toys R Us near you. Go buy it.  But is this figure worth it?  Read on!
