Image Bank: CW11 Aurra Sing

By Mike — Monday, October 4, 2010

A wonderfully executed figure with the perfect sculpt and great articulation, CW11 Aurra Sing is the best yet, and if you haven't picked her up, you need to. A brand new super articulated sculpt that is evolutions above her POTJ and Saga iterations, Sing is a pasty yet sexy volatile piece of plastic. If we were to nitpick, an additional dead Jedi lightsaber would have been fantastic. Please post your comments on the bounty hunter! 

Q&A: Announcements, Jabbas, Evolutions

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 3, 2010
Why does Hasbro hold back on toy announcements? Is it because you won't clean your room? Are people really finding that Jabba the Hutt set in stores? (Yes.) And why did Evolutions come to an end? All this and more in this week's Q&A!

Image Bank: CW10 General Grievous

By Mike — Saturday, October 2, 2010

You can now have your Separatist commander hard-boiled or deep fried. Hasbro retooled the previous TCW versions and gave him additional articulation (especially in the legs), interchangeable battle damage parts, new head sculpt, but alas, less ambidexterity and fire power. CW10 General Grievous may be the best  TCW version yet, but if there's one complaint, it's that his shoulder plates do not stay on and we recommend keeping the rubber bands on the hands because they are not sculpted well enough to grip those sabers.

Image Bank: CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer

By Mike — Saturday, October 2, 2010

Serve the public trust. Protect the innocent. Uphold the law. Yes, CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer sorta reminds us of this guy. As with most Clone Wars designed action figures, the sculpt is true to the series. While the limited articulation in the legs holds this figure back from a poseability standpoint, the shield/firing missile launcher combo is a nice touch.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,383

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 1, 2010

It's a fact: Pit Droid figures are great.  In 1999 and 2000, Hasbro really cranked them out with several in the USA and six more being, for the time, temporary exclusives.  This one came from a 2-pack sold in North America-- how is it?  Read on!
 

Comic-Con to Stay In San Diego

By Mike — Thursday, September 30, 2010

Breaking news from The SD Union Tribune reports that Comic-Con International will remain in San Diego for another 5 years. The ultimate decision hinged on 64 hotels committing to discounted rates for the mega event. San Diego was always a sentimental favorite for event organizers, where the pop culture gathering has been held since its modest inception in 1970.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,382

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 30, 2010

What would C-3PO look like if he had a torso storage bin and a laser finger?  Probably a lot like I-5YQ here, a Wal-Mart exclusive from about a year ago. The figure combines new parts with the limbs from 4-LOM, and the end result is a pretty distinctive looking robot.  Do you need one?  Read on!
