This week, Dan and Jerry are back to discuss all that is happening--or perhaps NOT happening at store shelves. Even though the "brick and mortars" are quiet, there is a lot of on-line news this week. Gentle Giant put three new pre-orders up and there's sure to be something for everybody: a jumbo vintage figure, a deluxe mini-bust, and a deluxe statue.
Here is a quick update from our sponsors at http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about another big batch of cool new preorders as well as some great new arrivals, including the latest offerings from Gentle Giant and Kotobukiya.
It's a good time to be a fangirl of the Star Wars saga as Her Universe, the female sci-fi genre line of fashionable apparel and accessories, revealed today it's new Spring/Summer line to debut at Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida on May 18th (running each weekend till June 10th) and online at www.heruniverse.com on May 21st.
Sandtroopers.com has two new stock images of an upcoming Kmart exclusive Vintage-boxed AT-ST. The unpackaged photo is horribly and hysterically posed, and the deco appears to be different from previous releases.
A healthy mix of repaints, a collector's tin, and Ziro the Hutt make up a new Target exclusive Fighter Pods set at Sandtroopers.com. You should check it out!
So, is it time to expect that Z-95 Headhunter? I'm gonna say probably not. What's up with Canada getting an exclusive Yoda variation? And should we wait for vintage updates of certain figures, or is there already a great alternative to be had? All this and Shuttles in this week's Q&A!
There's finally some break through after a few months of a devil's existence and lingering TPM Wave 1's as Wal-Mart is receiving shipments of Vintage Wave 4 with Dr. Evazan, Aayla Secura, and Kithaba.
The biggest chatter of the year comes from Florida, where Droid Factory is being deployed at Disney Hollywood Studios. You can build your own Astromech Droid, but what does the whole set-up look like? Our pal Chuck sent us some awesome images over teh Twitter, and you can click through to see them (and follow him) after the break.
From our sponsors at Brian's Toys: Collectors should take notice of the Vintage 12-Back Palitoy Star Wars figures, AFA-graded and in stock over at Brian's Toys! This selection features hard-to-find figures (from Han Solo Small Head to Sand People) that would make a great addition to anyone's growing collection.
