SWAN 383:A Wave-Full of Yakface

By Mike — Tuesday, March 5, 2013

For fans of Star Wars 3.75-inch figures the news is bad.  No new figures will be shipping for months, rumors of Target removing all Star Wars items from their toy aisles abound, and the last wave of Clone Wars figures can only be found in Germany and Canada.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - The Wrong Jedi

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 5, 2013

This week on The Clone Wars: Events are shown to have actual consequences with The Wrong Jedi. Like last season's final arc, we see events actually cause big changes to the Clone Wars storyline, with actual weight, things that matter, and a reason to tune in for a change. Also, Tim Curry is this week's surprise guest voice. HUGE spoilers and video after the break.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,015

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 5, 2013

The vintage Emperor's Royal Guard has a great piece count with too much gear for any sensible person... unless you can find a way to army-build it, in which case it's pretty awesome.  There's still a tiny bit of room for improvement here, but it's pretty amazing overall.  Check this one out! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,014

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 4, 2013

Sooooo Anakin Skywalker here is today's Figure of the Day! I just saw a case of these 2-packs at Target over the weekend, which is surprising as they were full price.  Based on a 2000 mold with a new-for-2012 helmet, this uniquely decorated action figure is good at standing around and is less good at piloting vehicles.  Should you buy the 2-pack? How about for Vader?

Q&A: Black Series, Micro Series, Saga Legends, Astromech Droids, and Much More!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 3, 2013

It's Monday, so let's keep Q&A going! Let's talk about Micro Figures and that trend, as well as the new Large 6-Inch Black Series, which will no doubt be a regular topic between now and the time it becomes unprofitable. (And if 7-inch Unleashed is any indication, for years beyond.) Who wants Wild Saga Legends Speculation? I DO! Oh, and we can talk about Droid Factory at Disney too, as I may be the only one who basically hates how that whole thing works out. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,013

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 1, 2013

Check out this blue Clone Trooper from 2005.  With sharp colors and lines plus animated styling, it's arguably more interesting than many of the other movie figures to be had these days... and nobody's looking to buy it, so you can probably get one cheap. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,012

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 28, 2013

Sure you've seen this dome before.   But the Green R2-Series Astromech Droid may have a new hat! This one has swell Yoda ears, based on a real hat you could buy in the early 1980s for some reason.  It looks good here... and this green droid is different enough from previous releases to warrant your attention.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,011

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Ah, the Shock Trooper.  This version is from last year and is based on a 2005 release, minus one part and with slightly sharper deco.  Which part?  And should you care?  Is this keeping you in suspense?

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - To Catch a Jedi

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 26, 2013

This week on The Clone Wars: Ahsoka is on the run some more in "To Catch a Jedi." Unlike many episodes of the series, this one is actually really exciting, giving us a chance to look at the lower levels of Coruscant (and we get so close to level 1313) as we get glimpses into just who (probably) really did set up the Jedi temple bombing a couple of weeks ago. While we don't meet many new characters, old familiar faces are back and will continue to make you mad that Hasbro isn't making more toys of these designs. Spoilers and video after the break.
