Boba Fett, Boba Fett, Boba Fett. This guy is everywhere on this week's Brian's Toys newsletter. Featured this week is a rare vintage 21-Back Boba Fett AFA-Graded and a Master Replica Boba Felt Helmet.
Scott from Tulsa sends us a follow up from last month's damaged Mailaway Fetts from Hasbro.
Hasbro and Wal-Mart teamed up to bring you a great Jabba the Hutt set, and it seems so well they jacked up the price. Available online (with free site-to-store shipping) is the Jabba's Throne set which, since its August release, remains difficult to find at retail.
Obi-Wan's droid finally gets plasticized Clone Wars style with great paint apps using the R3-S6 "Goldie" mold. If you like your droids, plan on picking this one up!
Don't forget, this weekend will be the rollout of the newest Hasbro endcap at Target stores. We've seen Nerf and Transformers, but this one will be packed with new Star Wars exclusives. Keep your eyes peeled for Mini Mighty Muggs, Battle Packs, Geonosis Arena Sets, Clone Wars 2-Packs, and more stock of basic figures and other goodies.
He's juvenile! He's delinquent! He's young Boba Fett! Re-introduced in Season 2 of The Clone Wars, the young bounty hunter in training is going through his own rites of passage. The figure is incredibly done, with the good likeness and articulation that we've come to expect from this line.
It looks like collectors will be spending a lot of dough this week. Besides the new slew of Target exclusives, Toys R Us is also receiving the latest vehicles which include the Hyena Bomber, AT-AP, AAT, and Swamp Speeder. Mickey Gunslinger sends in his find from Chandler, AZ yesterday. Open up those wallets and Happy Weekend Hunting!
Oh Denal, we hardly knew ye-- but we do know that ye suit should be coming back on another figure soon! This Clone Trooper has a unique helmet and a nice rocket pack, but the head is not much to speak of. Should you check him out? Read on!
This figure is simply stunning, with soft goods that work with the super articulation underneath. We do have concerns about the long term viability of the soft goods skirt as it seems prone to unraveling, but it lays well and complements the figure overall. VC31 Shaak Ti is the latest addition to our Image Bank. Post your thoughts in our comment box!
It's rare to see evolution take place right before your eyes, but you can do that with these Clone Trooper figures. (OK, not really.) He can be a pilot or a trooper-- it's all up to you! Just pick a helmet and presto, new figure. How many should you buy? Read on!
Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about a variety of new arrivals, more cool new preorders, and a great new sale!
With the recently released Battle Pack, you may think that there would be ample supply of Mandalorian Warriors for everyone. But don't fool yourself. This guy will be hot to move off the pegs. View all the detailed photos in our Image Bank and be sure to post your comments!
If you have an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 connected to the internet, you can download a playable demo of an early stage of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II right now. It's about 700 megs, so while big it should provide a nice sampling of what's to come very soon. Assuming you buy the game, of course.
The new Target exclusives are now available online at Amazon. These include the Hostage Crisis and Hidden Enemy Battlepacks, the 2010 Edition Geonosis Sets, Senate Guard 2 Pack, and Bounty Hunter 2 Pack. Thanks to curatola01 for the timely heads up!
