Brian's Toys Newsletter 1/31

By Mike — Monday, January 31, 2011

A great week of great stuff at Brian's Toys.  Vintage collectors will be thrilled to pick up some of the AFA-Graded Lili Ledy & Glasslite vintage figures.  They're quite rare and are going fast!

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

By Mike — Monday, January 24, 2011

Star Wars Galaxy Comic issue 4 is on sale NOW! 

This issue delivers a double dose of new beginnings, as two fantastic stories start! 

 

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!)

Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about a variety of new arrivals and another great new batch

Figure of the Day: Day 1,463

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 21, 2011

This Lando Calrissian redeco is notable for being bad-- actually, one of Hasbro's worst.  Target sold a big Battle Pack with this figure, which was pretty bad, and a  Luke redeco that's even worse.  Why so awful?   Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,462

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 20, 2011

Not as exciting as yesterday's AT-RT figure, this AT-RT Driver was a Target exclusive in a unique green color.  I like the green lenses in particular, but still, it hasn't really made any appearances as of yet.  Is it worth a look?  Read on!
