Image Bank: VC14 Sandtrooper

By Mike — Saturday, August 28, 2010

If you missed out on the Wal-Mart exclusive Dewback, here's your chance to army build with the new VC14 Sandtrooper. We have to admit that seeing the cardback featuring a POTF2 Sandtrooper on an orange card waxes nostalgic. Can you believe it's been 15 years? 

Image Bank: VC13 Anakin Skywalker

By Mike — Saturday, August 28, 2010

Where the master falls short, the apprentice shines. VC13 Anakin Skywalker is clearly the best iteration of the chosen one yet. Superb sculpt, super articulation, and soft goods that work. Heck, they even nailed the hair.

The finished product, Star Wars Uncut,” won an Emmy last week in a relatively new category, interactive media, heaping new attention onto a project that its producers call a “user-directed broadcast.”

Image Bank: VC12 Darth Sidious

By Mike — Friday, August 27, 2010

While the devil wears Prada, VC12 Darth Sidious certainly has a penchant for faux fur. The head sculpt is amazing and kudos on the removal cowl, but the execution of the felt soft goods jacket falls a little short. Sort of like a particularly cranky bag lady look. What makes sense with a Gamorrean Guard doesn't necessarily work with the evil despot of a galaxy far, far away. Just sayin, Big H.

If you're not out on a toy run, why not read about this unique Snowtrooper!  From a 2007 Target exclusive, this uniquely stained Imperial grunt stands apart from your army of similar figures-- and it came in a really swell boxed set, easily one of Hasbro's finest.  If you haven't added him to your ranks by now, should you?   Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,356

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Depending on the person's location, fans may tell you that this Leia (Hoth Outfit) is currently the most popular of the 11 just-released figures from The Empire Strikes Back.  She's certainly deserving of such sales, even if it may not be true, but is she worth your going out and buying?  Read on!

If you picked up the new Slave I in the Toys "R" Us exclusive "Rise of Boba Fett" Ultimate Battle Pack (in stores now), you may have noticed a few special compartments-- and maybe even guessed what they could be used, or repurposed, for.  We took the liberty of taking some quick shots of the Carbonite chamber in these storage areas.  Click through for pictures!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,355

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Hey kids, it's the Clone Trooper Fives!  He has a five on his head-- hence the name.  Other than that, is he special?  Or is he just another variant to make you mad?  I liked it, but you should read on anyway.

Image Bank: VC01 Dengar

By Mike — Monday, August 23, 2010

VC01 Dengar would never win a beauty contest, but his latest incarnation in plastic is primo. A striking head sculpt with wicked detail in the paint app, the bounty hunter is in  a worthy place first in line for the new Vintage Collection figures.
