If you didn't spend all day counting the seconds to the Banimon figure launch, perhaps you will want to read about the late 2010 Obi-Wan Kenobi.  Season 3. Thin. Awesome?

By Mike — Thursday, September 27, 2012

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.

Behold, the most recent individually-carded incarnation of Luke Skywalker in the farmboy outfit!  We expect a new one in about 1-2 years, but how is this one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,900

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 25, 2012

#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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,899

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 24, 2012

It's another C-3PO, although one oddly based on the 4-LOM body!  It's pretty good.  You can swap heads, and the deco is quite nice.  If you missed the 2010 release, you'll probably be sorry.  Read on!

Q&A: Vehicles, Bad Vehicles, Big Playsets, and... Walmart Again?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 23, 2012

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,898

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 21, 2012

This Passel Argente redeco is orange, and it sports a lightsaber slash on his chest.  That's really about all there is to it.  Should you get one?  Eh.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,897

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 20, 2012

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?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,896

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 19, 2012

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.
