By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 26, 2010
Why are some action figure bubbles yellowing while others stay pristine? Is it witches? Did Vintage Darth Sidious turn out as well as people were hoping? And is Hasbro reusing Clone heads on inappropriate figures? No, but I can see why you might get confused. Read on!

Image Bank: VC11 Cloud Car Pilot

By Mike — Sunday, September 26, 2010

VC11 Cloud Car Pilot catches us up in our Vintage Collection Image Bank. This version of the pilot shares the same design schematic as the vintage version.
