Yakface.com has the scoop - the missing Return of the Jedi edition The Vintage Collection AT-AT is hitting Toys R Us! The vehicle has slightly different deco with Endor mud and a unique AT-AT Driver action figure which is the only one ever made to feature black gloves.
Hey kids, it's the Emperor's Royal Guard! The new Vintage version is a pretty slick figure with all of the bells and whistles you might expect from a 2012 figure, with one major missing feature. What is it? Well, watch the review after the break, true believers!
OK, so who do we got going on tonight? Looks like Weequay, a remake of a figure which has been, historically, one of the best. Kenner did an awesome one in 1983, and another great one in 1997. The 2012 Vintage Collection release is pretty swell, too. You'll want to see this one up close... or just watch the video after the jump.
Let's look at another new Vintage action figure - but be warned, I hear they're starting to sell out and it hasn't even been a week since they hit! Today it's the updated Nien Nunb, which is a new version of the 1983 and 1997 figures, both of which were exceptional in their days and are still quite good. Now he has a blaster based on the boxy 1980s version, plus a 1997-esque rifle and 14 points of articulation. I love it. I assume you will too. Watch the video after the break!
Oh yes, it's Lumat! More than just a Graak repaint, this figure is a redeco of the new Logray body with some swell new additions. It's an online exclusive, plus one of the last remakes of unmade 1980s action figures. Should you care? I do, this is one of my favorite Ewoks of the year... and we got a bunch in 2012. Watch the video after the jump!
It's time to look at the Republic Trooper from Hasbro's Star Wars: The Vintage Collection 2012 Wave 7! This one comes from the MMO The Old Republic, which you could be playing right now. But you're not, you're reading this... but why read, when you can watch a short video review? It's only a minute and change, so check it out after the jump.
Let's look at Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Wave 7! He's from the new internet-only wave, which i the last batch of figures on this packging for a little while. The sculpt is great, the articulation is top-notch, and the figure is effectively a really slick "realistic" interpretation of the 2008 animated figure... but with more articulation. Watch the full review, after the jump!
So how about another video review? 2012 Wave 7, the online exclusive batch of action figures, has started shipping and if you preordered them you probably already have them. Today we're going to do a video review of Ahsoka, a realistic interpretation of the character in her season 3 costume. It's pretty good. I think you'll like it, so watch it after the jump. If you don't, we know where you work, and we'll find you.
