Star Wars Celebration VI is almost a month behind us, but the memories are still fresh, as are the collectibles! From coast to coast Celebration attendees are receiving their Disney Carbon Freeze Me statues! Marjorie and Arnie got theirs in the mail last week, so listen to this week's hands-on review of these truly one-of-a-kind collectibles! They'll tell you if it would be worth a Disney trip if these return to the theme parks.
#1,900! How did we make it this far? Why did we make it this far? It's time to look at a swell black-and-silver Mygeeto Super Battle Droid which, it seems, a lot of us missed. Is it cool? Of course! Read on!
It's almost here! In the latest Star Wars Blog entry, Steve Sansweet reminisces about his beginnings as a sci-fi reader and eventual writer as the release date nears for his highly anticipated Star Wars The Ultimate Action Figure Collection, which ships in November.
This week in Q&A: Slave I 2013 speculation! Let's talk MTT. Did you buy one yet? And can you trust eBay sellers calling something rare? (OF COURSE NOT.) All this and me complaining about Kmart's substandard AT-ST, arguably the worst Hasbro release of 2012, after the jump!
The Droid Factory Star Tours-exclusive Red R5-Series Astromech Droid isn't R5-D4, but it's kind of close! The unique dome has slightly different deco, plus it lacks the antenna of the build-a-droid mold seen at retail. Is it worth buying, or should you ask for a red robot refund?
Sideshow is now taking pre-orders for the new Sixth Scale Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Sideshow exclusive version includes an alternate "Lightsaber Duel" portrait for display.
Here's the latest arrivals and pre-orders from our sponsors at BigBadToyStore.com including the latest assortment of Star Wars 1/144 scale vehicles from FToys and the latest pre-orders from Gentle Giant!
The formerly Walmart exclusive 104th Battalion "Wolf Pack" Clone Troopers Ultimate Gift Set is now available as an online exclusive at Hasbro Toy Shop for $29.99 each. The set includes Commander Wolffe, Plo Koon, Clone Trooper Sinker, and Clone Trooper Boost.
This is a good one. If you're one of the few readers who still believe it's important for an action figure to be a good toy, this Anakin Skywalker is one of the better ones. Not only does he have the first entirely-new sculpt of Jake Lloyd as Anakin in over a decade, but he has a wacky fun toy backpack that feels like it was ripped right out of the 1990s... when the first Anakin came with a backpack which did absolutely nothing.
Gentle Giant is now taking pre-orders for the upcoming and very excellent Jumbo Rocket Firing Fett! Double that excitement in that the cardback is the classic Star Wars 21 Back "flamethrowing" version! Pre-orders are also being taken for the Jumbo Vintage Kenner Cantina playset, Jumbo ROTJ Gamorrean Guard, and Droopy McCool minibust.
The Clone Trooper Lieutenant is starting to finally trickle into stores, just in time for you to go "Didn't I get this in San Diego?" (Yes.) It's still quite good, and as a repaint it's OK. If yours has eyebrows, anyway. Read on!
