If you have Ross stores in your area, it may be worth your while to check out their toy sections. The until-just-recently online exclusive Plourr Ilo and Dlrr Nepp Comic Pack has been showing up at the clothing discounter for about $5.99-- a great price for 2 pilot figures! Good hunting.
We have good news and bad news. The good news? Sandtroopers.com revealed the all-white prototype armor Boba Fett figure in full, both carded and loose. The bad news? It doesn't have the grapple hook rocket like the image from Toy Fair's slide show implied. Rather, it's a reworked Animated Boba Fett from 2007. See more on their site.
Arguably the best version yet, this Plo Koon comes packaged with a vehicle and has-- get ready for it-- knee joints! That's what matters here. Should you get this one, even if it's the second or third one in your collection? Read on!
One of the cool things about the Star Tours line was the addition of "cast members" like this Jedi Master. It's just some dude made out of Agen Kolar parts with a new head, making it an ideal theme park exclusive. Should you get one? Read on!
Hey, it's the 2004 Y-Wing Pilot from the Toys "R" Us exclusive Y-Wing Fighter! It can sit just fine, and it's a great figure to put in a vehicle... but it's not very impressive by modern standards. Or the standards of 2004... or 1998. Want to see more? Read on!
Hey kids, it's a Clone Trooper! You love those, especially with wacky graphics on their chests. This one is particularly neat-- so read on!
Our little Ahsoka is growing up! Which means adulthood and either some form of death or exile is just around the corner. This new action figure takes the new, older version of the character and makes a darned good toy out of her. Read on!
Long alluded to by Hasbro via their Q&A sessions, this new Tauntaun test shot can be seen at Sandtroopers.com in their forums. Presumably this is something that will be revealed at (or even released by) Comic-Con this July, but the actual fate of this item is presently unknown. Be sure to take a look, and post your thoughts below!
If you collected vehicles from the 1978-1985 era of Star Wars toys, you no doubt recall some gorgeous photography on the boxes. Not being one to miss a good opportunity, Hasbro (by way of the great Sandtroopers.com) seems to be giving Kmart an exclusive Vintage B-Wing! Read on for more.
He appeared in tons of comics, and in 2010 Hasbro finally gave Tholme his own action figure... that you likely didn't see at retail more than once or twice. He comes with a swell cane and exception sculpting, so should you get him before he gets too expensive? Read on!
This new wave of The Clone Wars is just hitting, and I couldn't wait to write about Eeth Koth. Based on the rarely-seen Jedi Master from The Phantom Menace, this animated figure has an excellent design which makes a good toy and a nice collectible. Want to know more? Read on!
The figures of Star Wars Clone Wars Wave 9 are hitting stores now, as I have just seen the wave at a Glendale, AZ area Toys "R" Us. Also, select online stores have received and shipped orders as well, so this might be a good time to go hunting for the new guys.
If you like clones, you probably can't get enough of the buggers. So take a look at this Special Ops Clone Trooper from earlier this year, an exclusive at Target stores. The head is new, the deco is unique, and he ain't half bad. Should you get one? Read on!
