In the comics, ARC Trooper Alpha-17 was usually blue. OK, pretty much 100% blue. There was a more Episode III-esque redesign, but for some reason we got a red one in an Evolutions set a few years back. Is it worth a look? Read on!
It's a new Even Piell, the first all-new sculpt for the character in quite some time! (Almost 10 years!) This short figure has a nifty climbing backpack and a head sculpt that feels like it's a little fragile. Read on!
Last Q&A for a while-- I'm going on hiatus for a few weeks! We also look at the Just-relased Mandalorian Assault Transport, the future of vintage logos, and Star Wars Mego. And more! Read on, and send in your questions for our next exciting update.
In this week's ad:
1. Vintage Y-Wing on sale for $29.99, or $10 off. It's difficult to cram newer pilots (with all the straps) in here, but it's still a gorgeous ship for $30.
2. Bricktober! Spend $20 on LEGO and get a free Retro Minifigure LEGO magnet.
Ad: The new and super-nifty Vintage Wave 9 has been restocked at Entertainment Earth. It includes a number of Revenge of the Jedi figures plus Bastila Shan, a Hoth Rebel Trooper, and the finest version of Ponda Baba yet! Click here to check pricing and availability.
It's Lando Calrissian and this is the third modern attempt to sculpt the Rebel hero, but only the first with a cloth cape. The original in the 1980s got it right, but how does this one stack up against its modern siblings?
I hope you love Republic Commando figures like this Omega Squad Sniper, an exclusive that you can't easily get any more. Well, unless you count eBay. Does this figure know where the blacktion is, or is it just another repaint? Read on!
From Domino Squad, it's Cutup! This new redeco appeared on eBay and has not yet been confirmed by Hasbro. Is it something they'll announce at New York Comic Con next month...
It's Aurra Sing, cartoon style! Since the new movie one isn't ready yet, this is currently the best version of the character you can buy as a toy. Heck, it might be still next year-- we'll have to wait and see. Read on!
Since 2009, Cad Bane has been given at least 4 different action figures, including this one in a fallen Clone's armor. I like it a lot-- he has a few neat features, a Holocron, and a head without the cyber-cheek implants. Read on!
This week: Battle Pack analysis-- is that a new figure I see? How do store exclusives work? Well, I'll tell you what I think I can get away with. And vintage numbering? Well... OK. All this and more await you, so read on!
