Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,470

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Hey, it's another Obi-Wan Kenobi!  From 2005 through 2008, Hasbro did a lot of mixing-and-matching to create slightly different versions of the Phantom Menace costume.  Is this one any good?  Read on!

Image Bank: VC32 Anakin Skywalker (Peasant Disguise)

By Mike — Tuesday, February 1, 2011

He's vastly improved from the original "Peasant Disguise" Anakin pictured on the cardback, with nice articulation and great paint detail, particularly on the tunic. The new Vintage AOTC era Anakin Skywalker came out much better in plastic than the pre-release Hasbro product shots, and we highly recommend upgrading your 2002 clunker for the newer, sleeker 2010 model today.

 

 

Image Bank: VC30 Zam Wesell

By Mike — Monday, January 31, 2011

Like a grape Otter Pop of perfection, the new Vintage Collection Zam Wesell impresses with a highly detailed sculpt and an evolutionary jump from the 2002 pre-posed, action featured Saga version. You've now got an almost spot on facial likeness of Leanna Walsman, removable helmet, swappable heads, and super-articulation. This one will be the definite version for awhile, folks. So make sure to pick her up!

 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,469

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 31, 2011

There have been a few flavors of the Geonosian Warrior, this one came with the boxed set of Delta Squad a few years ago.  He has a big gun and purple wings-- oh, and some clones you might want.  Is he worth picking up in his own right?  Read on!

Image Bank: VC29 Kit Fisto

By Mike — Monday, January 31, 2011

The Nautolan Jedi Master receives the ultra Vintage Collection treatment featuring an all new sculpt, super articulation, and a removable soft goods cloak. While Kit Fisto has had quite a few iterations in the past, this version has to be considered the best yet. The paint detail is quite nice and the poseability makes most older versions obscure. He'll also fit nicely in the new Wal-Mart exclusive Starfighter.

Q&A: Big Ships, New Figures, TV Shows, and Repacks

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 30, 2011

We look at Hasbro's best big vehicles, the length of The Clone Wars on TV and in the aisle, and of course, more astromech droids. All this and some notes on the new Attack of the Clones Vintage wave can be yours in this week's Q&A!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,468

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 28, 2011

It looks like a soda can and is named the Retail Droid, or LR-57 Combat Droid.  Ridiculous, or awesome?  I'd say this release is a little of each, and is worth snagging as part of a pretty good Battle Pack.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,467

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 27, 2011

From the future of Star Wars comes Sigel Dare, an Imperial Knight that barely squeaked out with an action figure release before the comic packs went away.  Is she any good?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,466

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 26, 2011

It's Carnor Jax in training gear!  Note the blue outfit, recycled Clone trainee legs, and nifty logo on his back.  Should you pick up this guardsman-to-be?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,465

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 25, 2011

The second (and much improved) animated Magnaguard is pretty fantastic-- not as good as the Vintage one, but still exquisite.  It's lanky and chunky, has some great gear, and an excellent sculpt.  Read on!

Star Wars Galaxy #4

Figure of the Day: Day 1,464

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 24, 2011

Back before we called them "soft goods" Kenner enlisted its girls division to make this great Princess Leia Organa figure in an all-cloth white dress.  Wow!  For once, articulation wasn't restricted by the outfit.  Should you get one today?  Well, maybe.  Read on!

Q&A: Blu-Ray Edits, Star Destroyers, Heads, and Really Old Toys

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 23, 2011

So should you expect Hasbro to sell you a Giant Star Destroyer? Probably not. Should you expect the theatrical cuts of the films on Blu-Ray? Also probably not. And do Wooof and Giran share the same head? There's a pattern here-- read about all this and more in this week's Q&A! (Also, I found a case of figures from 2005 at a store-- read on for more!)
