You've seen the best, now see the rest! Another commentary on Toy Fair 2011, from me? Why yes! You asked, so I'll do my best to give you a quick rundown of this year's amazing coverage. There's not a lot of pictures, but look on the bright side-- there's a TON of reading.
This particular ARC Trooper has yellow markings, and came with Master Sev. Who's Master Sev? Why, he's the Jedi that this ARC Trooper killed in the comics. Is it worth picking up this unique warrior? Read on!
New! More or less. The Army of the Republic Battle Pack has 4 Clone Troopers, based on the 2009 revision of the figure. (Which is to say, the basic 2008-2009 body with the resculpted basic helmet. But what figures do you get? Read on!
I know what you want. Major Panno probably isn't it, but as a figure he's quite good. The level of detail is excellent, there's a little pouch on his cloak, and it's a nice sculpt too. So if you get him, now you've got two members of his species in the modern line-- and he's the best! Read on!
There's never a shortage of Clone Trooper toys today, but back from 2002 and 2005 these warriors were far and few between-- which is why Entertainment Earth had these exclusive action figure packs. How is this unique battle damaged variant? Read on!
What's the best way to come down from Toy Fair? Let's look at something old. The Han Solo with gunner station wasn't a big seller. It even got dumped in the Big Clearance of 2000. Was it even neat for its time? Read on!
It's almost dirty! The first-ever Labria action figure has since been repainted, but there's no denying the intrigue around a first-release. Or rather, there wouldn't be if there weren't thousands of the things. Is it any good? Read on!
Another cold, wintery Toy Fair is behind us, and while we understand the reasons behind having it in New York in February, there has to be some workaround where we aren't under a blizzard warning every year and don't have to explain to our spouses or significant others why Valentine's Day for a toy geek actually falls the next Saturday after Toy Fair. But we digress.
This Boba Fett looks a lot like the 2007 Animated Debut version, but it isn't. Well, it's close-- it was supposed to be redecorated, but Hasbro gave this one an accessory transplant. Worth a look? Read on!
Back in 1999 and 2000, Hasbro really cranked out a lot of Jar Jar Binks figures. Some had great head sculpts, some... well, some were like this. He looks bored, doesn't have jointed legs, and the paint is basically OK. Should you bother? Read on!
This Saga Legends Sandtrooper is one of my favorites. It's a good mold with a great paint wipe, which resulted in a stunning figure which people actually still want today. (Unreal, I know.) You should get one-- so read on!
So hey, it's Warok, in theory. It looks a little like the vintage 1980s action figure, although the coloring is different from what we saw on the old Kenner cardback. It seems like, for now, this is probably the only modern Warok we'll get-- is he worth it? Read on!
"The Force will be with you, always." No kidding! As we at Galactic Hunter begin coverage of our twelfth, respective, Hasbro event at Toy Fair, we are awestruck by the breadth of the modern line, as it continues to expand into its 16th year! [Some collectors have had children who couldn't even play with action figures graduate high school by now!]
Hasbro put on their fancy duds today to show off their latest new and shiny goodies for 2011. Here's a PDF of the Power Point presentation for your perusal. The whole gang is here - including Bastilla Shan (not shown in the showroom) and the Mail-Away Prototype Empire Strikes Back Boba Fett. Enjoy, and let us know what you think of this year's starting line-up.
The upcoming Republic Attack Shuttle is this year's BIG ship featuring plenty of features in vehicle and battle mode. Check out this Hasbro Toy Fair showroom video demonstrating its many capabilities. The pricepoint is $79.99, includes a pack-in Clone, and is slated for release this fall. Enjoy!
