The very hard-to-find second wave 2012 Star Wars Naboo Fighter is in stock at Amazon.com for a mere $24.98, or about what it would have cost at a big box store had it actually ever arrived there. Free shipping with Amazon Prime is included. Click here to grab one while you can!
Let's Q&A! OK, go - first, Black Series. Nomenclature is fun! Also, Subscription Figures and why you should be thankful we don't have a subscription program. Which figures are best? Why, Star Wars figures of course. All this and more - read on!
Let's put a stake through the heart of this week with the Imperial Officer (Death Star Scanning Crew), which finishes up our look at Kmart's new Scanning exclusives. Next week: Ewoks. But for now, check out this black-suited villain with fleshy gloves and a swell hat.
OK, so today we're looking at the new-for-2013 Imperial Technician (Death Star Scanning Crew). It looks a lot like the 2009 figure, with some deco changes - and since it's a trooper, a slight difference is enough for me to qualify this as a new figure worth your while. I am easy. Read on!
There are two of them! Today it's the Imperial Technician (Imperial Scanning Crew), or to the layman, "this is the one with the new head and missing parts." You'll want this one - he's loaded with new gear and a head that's a tad too small.
We're back for a bit! Figure of the Day returns - but not every day - to show you TK-421, a new Stormtrooper that you might find at your local Kmart if they haven't already closed up. Would you believe Hasbro made it interesting? Well, they did. Check it out - read on!
Let's talk Q&A while I sit here looking to fill the week. What do we have? Let's complain about insufficient Expanded Universe figures. I think you people are wrong here. And Saga Legends, I love those new ones. Also, Black Series and best-of breed figures - and some other stuff. Oh, and you should go see Machete Kills while you can - no self-respecting fan of Star Wars should miss that movie. See it now so you can be cool and tell your friends you saw it in theaters. Oh, and let's look at the line through the eyes of an 11 year old. Would you believe they've been seeing the same dang thing for the bulk of their lifetime? And now, read on!
Unless your heart is made of stone, you'll be thrilled to hear the Star Wars Ewok Assault Catapult ($20.99) and the Imperial Scanning Crew and Death Star Scanning Crew ($15.99) are hitting stores now - I found them all at a Phoenix-area Kmart this evening.
