Welcome to Q&A with me, some guy who used to be relevant to toy journalism back in the 1990s! This week: Let's talk Jawas, figures and vehicles. And let's also talk about Chewbacca Black Series toys. What a Wookiee! And while we're at it, how about Star Wars Rebels Vehicles which are likely to be the single greatest new thing since the 1980s? And maybe we'll speculate wildly with no real information about Episode VII, because everyone else is. Sounds good to me - read on!
Patrick in Easton, PA wrote in to say he found the MTT Multi-Troop Transport for a mere $39.99 at his local TJ Maxx store! (They share similar toy inventory with Marshalls.) It's probably worth taking a look in your area if you're still in the market for this beast - I even saw one at my closest Walmart today, still at around $90 though. Good hunting!
While not fun enough to warrant $130, the figures alone are probably worth the $40 - you get some slug Battle Droids, some decent droids, plus Obi-Wan Kenobi and a ton of guns in this box.
Oscar is done, so let's get back to Q&A! This update includes Star Wars Video Games, your chances of seeing Darth Plagueis anytime soon, and Dewback styling. Got a question? My mailbag needs it for next week. Read on!
And we're back! Q&A's Post-Toy Fair Season is on, with your questions. Send in more! We look at things like V figures, more small vehicles, complain about articulation some more, and offer up more musings about New York's big show. Be sure to let us know what you want for next week, or more vacations for us!
Because I am preposterously tired, have my Hasbro Toy Fair Panel Star Wars Notes. This is what I punched up as the panel played on, and you probably won't get a heck of a lot more insight over what you've already seen so far. Heck, maybe it'll clarify something. Just go ahead and read on!
