By Mike — Tuesday, January 24, 2012

2012 Big Vehicle: MTT?

By Mike — Tuesday, January 24, 2012

I guess there will be a home for those new folding Battle Droids after all. There's always a level of suspense around Toy Fair time on what the next BMF Vehicle will be. Our friends at Jedi Temple Archives have a lead that it will be none other than the Episode I MTT (Multi Troop Transport)!

Image Bank: VC78 Battle Droid

By Mike — Monday, January 23, 2012

Comparing the new Vintage Collection Battle Droid to the first versions from 1999 is almost like comparing a Vintage Kenner Stormtrooper with a modern super-articulated version. They're just worlds of sculpt, design, and engineering apart.

Q&A: Vintage, Cloak Colors, Dejarik, and More

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 22, 2012

I need to write an intro for Q&A, don't I? Crap. Uhhh... what do we have this week? Deleted Scenes Figures! Just what color is Luke's cloak anyway? Does Jedi Force have a future? Is it possible, the Recon Shuttle is making it out? All this and a nice little tangent on all things Dejarik (there aren't many) in this week's Q&A!

Image Bank: VC77 Ratts Tyerell & Pit Droid

By Mike — Saturday, January 21, 2012

Ratts Tyerell was originally supposed to be included as a 2 pack with BD11 Clegg Holdfast but was held back to be released in 2012 as part of The Vintage Collection. The date stamp on the figure even indicates 2009. How does he hold up over 2 years later? Hasbro executed a decent design and sculpt albeit we would have liked to have seen the "screaming" face instead of a calmer, grinning Ratts. The included Pit Droid has a nice new deco and is a re-used mold from the Bonus Pit Droids packed in place of Commtech Chips that were only released in Asia for The Episode I Collection.
