Presenting some hi-res detailed photos of the new and upcoming Movie Heroes Bespin Battle and Duel On Naboo Battle Packs. More figure, less action? You won't get too much poseability with 5-8 points of articulation, but they are undoubtedly new sculpts. The Obi-Wan headsculpt even looks amazing in these photos. But will collectors rejoice or gripe? Stay tuned, but in the meantime, enjoy!
Expanded Universe continues to be popular amongst collectors, particularly when it comes to gaming. The 2009 Fan's Choice winner shares the same game (Knights of the Old Republic) and scarcity, and for now, high premium as the 2006 winner, Darth Revan. While traditionalists would rather stick with film based characters, there is a cross market out there that are buying the game based figures up. Besides, Bastila Shan is great looking.
Hasbro had a few iterations in the modern line of the Hoth Rebel Trooper, but collectors wanted an updated version of the Kenner figure with the tan vest.
It's the third release of swimming Kit Fisto in "realistic" style! This one was the best, because it came with a wire-filled cloak, a better paint job, and a cool astromech droid sidekick. I hope you got yours! Read on!
This print ad was actually out last summer featuring VC51 Barriss Offee, but she'll be back in circulation as part of 2012 Wave 5 slated for release later this month in case you missed her the first time.
The tough-to-spell Ratts Tyerell is in stores now, most likely. While some noticed the initial wave is hanging (because it is), he'll probably dry up soon-- should you get him before he does? I think so. Read on!
Hasbro is going green in more ways than one in 2013. The Pawtucket, Rhode Island company has announced plans to reduce product packaging in many of its global brands, which will result in a 15% improvement in the average product to packaging ratio and a more environmentally friendly packaging overall.
While not called out on the front of the box, this ARF Trooper is basically Trapper from the really cool Geonosis story arc. There were zombies and dirt, which I hear kids love. Should you get him? Does he look like Waxer and Boil?
It's interesting to see that this Battle Droid is getting another run, and is one of the oldest figures to get a redeco in the line's run. (First issue 1998, this issue 2012.) So the STAP is quite different, but how about the figure? Read on!
An eBay seller from Malaysia is selling some loose samples of The Vintage Collection Wave 4 and has added a few nice shots. This assortment, which was held over from last year, includes Dr. Evazan, Nom Anor, Kithaba, and Aayla Secura.
Deviations from the normal course can at times turn into disaster, and then there are the few instances where it results into brilliant execution. The new Clone Wars "realistic" Anakin Skywalker has to be considered the best one of this character yet. Don't believe me? Take a look at the comparison shot with VC13 Anakin Skywalker to make you marvel in its superiority.
Let's get this out of the way. That cardback is infallible like a holy relic and brings geeky tears to my eyes. Having a Darth Vader on a Kenner Star Wars card brings back so many memories, it's like an old childhood friendship rekindled. The action figure, while not entirely perfect, is pretty awesome too.
