Q&A: Lost Toys, Package Glitches, and Order 66

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 3, 2011

Are you afraid you missed a rare 501st Clone Trooper you saw on another site? What's the deal with packaging errors these days, should you buy them? And is it too late to get a Battle Pack that shipped last year? Maybe-- are you willing to work for it? Did you know Order 66 wasn't always meant to be in Revenge of the Sith? All this and more, if you read on!

Clone Wars Season 4 Teaser (Yes, Really)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, April 2, 2011

And to think, the season 3 finale of The Clone Wars just aired in the USA last night!  Wasting no time, the official site posted a 30-second teaser showing off season 4.  R2-D2 & C-3PO get hit by some net, we see a Mon Calamari warlord (heck, it might even be Ackbar) and loads of Clones.  In short, it looks good!  Check it out.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,513

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, April 1, 2011

I define Leesub Sirln as "too obscure."  Why?  In the 1990s when she got a trading card made of her, everybody I asked told me they were pretty sure it was an airbrushed original design created just for Decipher's Premiere Edition of the Customizable Card Game.  What say you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,510

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 29, 2011

It's Clone Trooper Jesse, a sort of a new mold as figures go.  It's the new, Stone-style body but it has ball-jointed hips-- a first for this particular Clone mold.  This puts him up there with ARF Troopers, but is it good enough to rebuy a BARC Speeder?  Read on!

Did you miss the 2010 Target Geonosis Arena packs and if so, is it too late? Why isn't Hasbro cranking out more carry cases for action figures?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,508

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 25, 2011

I can usually find some good in most figures, but this Luke Skywalker is easily one of Hasbro's all-time worst.  And this isn't just Star Wars, but their entire plastic output.  Just look at the inset of Luke's head-- you know this is going to suck, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,507

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 24, 2011

Most likely available at a Toys "R" Us near you still, this Nikto Guard was originally supposed to come in a Battle Pack.  Now, well, you can get him by himself if you want.  Is it worth it?  Read on!
