By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 23, 2012

This week in Q&A: Slave I 2013 speculation! Let's talk MTT. Did you buy one yet? And can you trust eBay sellers calling something rare? (OF COURSE NOT.) All this and me complaining about Kmart's substandard AT-ST, arguably the worst Hasbro release of 2012, after the jump!

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 21, 2012

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 20, 2012

The Droid Factory Star Tours-exclusive Red R5-Series Astromech Droid isn't R5-D4, but it's kind of close!  The unique dome has slightly different deco, plus it lacks the antenna of the build-a-droid mold seen at retail.  Is it worth buying, or should you ask for a red robot refund?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,896

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 19, 2012

This is a good one.  If you're one of the few readers who still believe it's important for an action figure to be a good toy, this Anakin Skywalker is one of the better ones.  Not only does he have the first entirely-new sculpt of Jake Lloyd as Anakin in over a decade, but he has a wacky fun toy backpack that feels like it was ripped right out of the 1990s... when the first Anakin came with a backpack which did absolutely nothing.
