SWAN 348: Toys from the Amazon

By Mike — Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Figures are starting to trickle back into stores, with new figures being reported found at Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys R Us. But as reported on last week's podcast, the quickest, most reliable way to get some new figures at close to retail were to order them from Amazon.com. Arnie and Marjorie ordered a handful of new Star Wars Vintage figures from Amazon including Dr. Evizan, the 501st clone, and Arc Trooper Commander to have some openers.

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 4, 2012

Review: VC100 Starkiller (Vader's Apprentice)

By Mike — Sunday, June 3, 2012

Based on the Clone (or is it?) protagonist from The Force Unleashed II game, Starkiller comes with a pilot outfit and training armor for some Sith apprentice badass-ness. For better or worse, he's the 100th Vintage Collection figure (I thought it should've been a more iconic character that Kenner never originally produced, like Tarkin.) and if past is any prologue on the popularity of other Star Wars video game themed action figures and the cross-sell appeal for both collectors and gamers alike, he should be pretty hard to find on a store peg.
