Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,438

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 17, 2010

Hey, it's a Bonus Pit Droid!  Back in 2001, these thinks were basically the bigfoot of action figures-- you've never seen them, and you never will.  In 2007, Hasbro reissued them and now you can get them cheap-- that's life!   So is it worth getting these legends?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,436

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Just how many different Battle Droid figures can Hasbro give us?  TONS.   This one uses the new body mold, but paints it differently giving you yet another unique configuration of the ubiquitous robots.   Any good?  Yes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,435

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 14, 2010

The latest version of Padme to make the rounds on a basic card was this 2009 Queen Amidala from the Legacy range.  It's not bad-- she can't sit, but she looks pretty great!  Read on!

Image Bank: SL14 R2-D2

By Mike — Monday, December 13, 2010

This figure may not be the most articulated or even definitive R2-D2, but boy is he fun with all the flashing lights and electronic sounds. A repack of the Revenge of the Sith figure from  2005, this mold actually saw its first incarnation in plastic as the POTF2 Power FX R2-D2.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,434

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 13, 2010

Hey kids, it's the new Clone Trooper figure which, oddly, is actually somewhat easy to find!  He's got more articulation than ever, and comes on a nice vintage cardback.  So how many can I put you down for?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,433

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 10, 2010

That's right, you heard right-- another Clone Trooper, this time a Target-specific version with a unique design on only one shoulder.  I'm assuming it's a different rank or something.  Are they any good?  You get two in a box, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,431

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Hey kids, it's the 7th Legion Clone Trooper!  Based on a concept armor, this spotted clone has a removable helmet (which was a novelty on  basic carded figures in 2007) and a lot of articulation.  How many does your army need?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,430

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Hey, do you know what's awesome?  Anakin Skywalker in his space suit.   It's a super-articulated figure with a fish bowl.  This is awesome-- seriously, it's fantastic and goofy and I love it.  You should own one.  Read on.

VC13 Consumed by Darth Vader

By Mike — Monday, December 6, 2010

As Hasbro promised, the name tab, cardback, and POP for VC13, formerly known as Anakin Skywalker, is now appropriately called Darth Vader per his transformation and appearance in Mustafar. Of course, you now have two The Vintage Collection "Darth Vaders" on the pegs, the other being VC08, but that shouldn't confuse anyone, right?

By Mike — Monday, December 6, 2010

Hasbro corrected the paint error on VC15 Clone Trooper's helmet with the appropriate line around the cap. This particular sample was found at a Target store in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,429

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 6, 2010

Offered before many of you were born, Rocket Firing Boba Fett is something of a holy grail, a legend not just in Star Wars, but in the world of toy collecting in general.  The 2010 mail-in version has been changed significantly from the original design, meaning nobody should be able to pass this off as an original.  Is this a pro, or a con?  Read on!
