Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,578

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 1, 2011

When first revealed to the public in 1999, another, better R2-D2 was shown around the same time.  As such, this one didn't get as much heat, especially after we all found out his scene was deleted-- the booster rockets took on a new form in the sequels. Ah well.  But is it neat?  Read on!

One of the most likable critters from Jabba's Palace is the cackling puppet Salacious Crumb.  He's a jerk. What's not to love?  The 2010 release was a repaint of the 2007 release, hardly essential were it not for the fact it came with a new Jabba and Oola.  So how is he different?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,576

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 29, 2011

It's no secret, I love Ewoks.  I think the fact that a lot of collectors hate them makes me like them even more.  I was particularly jazzed to get the 2009 update of Paploo which, while I don't love as much as the 1984 original, I still like bunches.  Is he worth your while?  Read on!

It's not superbly common that we get a character like Anakin Skywalker in a disguise like this Naboo Pilot uniform without a regular Naboo Pilot coming out first-- but hey, here we are!  It's a neat figure with a neat ship.  Are you excited?  Should you be?  Read on!

New Star Wars Saga Legends Spacetrooper Includes Gun Now

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, June 24, 2011

Last year when Hasbro released the Spacetrooper, it had shoulder pads, a jetpack, and a droid bit.  The droid bit is gone, and now that he's shipping from Hasbro in Saga Legends packaging, he's got a new (to him) gun. (The ammo thing isn't on the side like a Stormtrooper gun, rather it appears similar to a redeco of Wioslea's weapon.) Click through for bigger pics.

One of Jabba's dancers, this Rystall figure has been readily available online throughout the 2000s, cheaply, and has been blown out and later reissued as a Wal-Mart exclusive. In short: she's very very cheap.  Should you get one?  Read on!
