SWAN 361: Celebration VI Memories

By Mike — Thursday, September 13, 2012

With so much anticipation it's hard to believe Star Wars Celebration VI is over, but with all the good times come good memories! On this week's Star Wars Action News, Marjorie and Arnie listen to recounts of some of the best times people had at Star Wars Celebration VI, from meeting celebrities to shopping to making friends to just partying, you shared your thoughts on this episode of the podcast.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,892

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 13, 2012

This Gasgano from 2012 lacks the Pit Droid from 1999, but has a flag and slightly different deco.  So you'll probably begrudgingly buy this one, if at all.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,891

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Who loves a good argument?  The Nightsister which just showed up at Target is sold with animated versions of Darth Maul and Savage Opress, but is sculpted to match a prequel concept for a proto-Darth Maul Sith Witch character.  She's not very cartoony, but if anything, feels like a stealth "concept" figure rather than a Mother Talzin substitute.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,890

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 11, 2012

The Darth Sidious that is made the least tends to sell best, and the 2012 version ain't bad. It has a nice head sculpt popped on a 2005 body, but the sculpt of the 1999 version is pretty charming still.  Is this a worthy upgrade?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,889

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 10, 2012

This is a good one.  The Yellow R6-Series Astromech Droid was probably my favorite from the ones I was able to get in Orlando last month, because it looks just familiar and just different enough to be awesome.  It's also in some really gonzo color.  Is it worth tracking down?

Q&A: Hasbro Questions with Hasbro from Celebration VI, Part C: The Final Chapter

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 9, 2012

This week, the final round of your questions for Hasbro at Celebration VI! Next week, back to me making up stuff, this week the answers come from Hasbro in Orlando, and a big thanks to them for putting up with my and my nonsense! As an added bonus, the end has hands-on impressions of Toys R Us' new Speeder Bike. It's worth the asking price. Read on!

Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 3 Checklist

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 8, 2012

A few of you have written in asking which Fighter Pods were exclusive to the series 3 blind bags.  A good question!  But let's do you one better and give you a Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 3 Checklist!

Star Wars Fighter Pods Naboo Starfighter Shipping, Here's Another Video

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 8, 2012

The Naboo Starfighter Pack is the sole carded "vehicle pack" in Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 3.  (There's a boxed one too, so don't fret too much.)  It includes an exclusive Anakin Skywalker, Darth Maul, and Naboo Starfighter while introducing the new "Spinfire Launchers" which aren't half bad.  Despite the series being more than 50% repaints, the new elements are actually a heck of a lot of fun in this set.  See the video and figures after the jump... or don't.  Whatever.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,888

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 7, 2012

There are many, many C-3PO figures and this is one of them.  Based on a retooled and redecorated 2005 mold, the Resurgence of the Jedi release has some extra smudging and black oil paint. Is it cool?  Read on!

Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 3 Shipping, Bonus Horrible Video Review

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 6, 2012

Good news, everyone! Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 3 are here!  I got a box of blind-bagged figures the other day and made a short video highlighting the new packaging and new figures like Savage Opress, Ahsoka Tano, and Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise.  Several awesome new figures are included, as well as an obscene number of new holographic figures... including Jabba the Hutt.  Want to see more?  Check out the video after the jump.
