Sideshow: Exclusive Mythos Fett Pre-Order

By Mike — Friday, October 26, 2012

He's armed to the hilt and ready to do some serious hurt on some unsuspecting bounty, at least according to Sideshow's Mythos expression. Standing about 19 inches tall (26 inches with the long blaster rifle), the upcoming Mythos Boba Fett strikes a compelling pose and ready for you to pre-order as a Sideshow exclusive.

By Mike — Friday, October 26, 2012

It's beginning to look a lot like…? Not yet, but it's almost here and ToysRUs is where the stuff is at the moment with their exclusive, expensive, and beautifully retro Kenner repackaged (B)ig (M)illennium (F)alcon. Now to that $250 conundrum.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,922

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 25, 2012

Our friend Sebulba  is a fine example of everything good and bad with the figures this year.  A redeco of a very good mold from 10 years ago, he's never looked better.  He's also an exclusive, who came out late, who's the only Sebulba of the year, and doesn't fit in the Sebulba Pod Racer vehicle which came out months earlier.  Ah well!  At least he's a good figure on his own, right?  Find out!

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - The Soft War

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 24, 2012

This week on The Clone Wars: things happen! Not extent to wallow in and repeat exposition, the oddly named "The Soft War" bring us more action, more character, and actual events that you can recount as being different from the events you have seen previously. It's almost like we're spoiled! Ahsoka gets to be cool, Steela gets to show off, and we get to see some one-way shielding, which is apparently now a thing. As always, spoilers and video await you!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,921

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Ahhhh Luke Skywalker.  This has gone from a hotly-requested resculpt from Hasbro to something they try every year or two, to varying degrees of success.  Since 2009 Hasbro has been trying some really interesting things with the Black Jedi costume, which follows the 2007 costume, which was just plain awful.  How does this one stack up?  Since you may not be able to find it, does it matter? (Of course it does, you can buy one online.)

Coming Soon

GHR: Vintage BMF Online...It'll Cost Ya

By Mike — Tuesday, October 23, 2012

It's definitely the best Star Wars 3.75 inch vehicle Hasbro has ever produced and nicely repackaged Vintage style for ToysRUs and the holidays. But at $250, which is $100 more than when it was first released four years ago ($149.99), collectors will have to dig deeper in their pockets this time around. That's a lot of upcharge for packaging.

TRU MTT Coupon Is The Best Deal Ever?

By Mike — Tuesday, October 23, 2012

ToysRUs is offering a $50 coupon off the Multi Troop Transport (MTT) beginning on October 28th for their Big Book promotion. While looking like a great deal at face value, the reality is that it merely matches what other stores like Walmart is charging.

SWAN 366: NYCC Toy Hunter

By Mike — Tuesday, October 23, 2012

New York Comic Con was a great time for Star Wars fans. From new toy reveals from Hasbro and their Angry Birds Star Wars to new collectible and product announcements from Hallmark, Kotobukiya, and more, and convention veteran Mitchell Hallock was on-hand to cover it all. Join us on Star Wars Action News this week to hear his recollection of the con, along with interviews with Kotobukiya, Hallmark, Comic Images, and a discussion of Star Wars toys with Toy Hunter Hembrough!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,920

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Another look back at the now-classic Clone Wars figure line!  This Clone Trooper comes from the Tartakovsky era of the show, when the microseries aired in tiny bite-sized chunks.  The figure has excellent painted detail and looks like a 2D drawing come to life.  It's also dirt cheap.  Should you track this one down?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,919

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 22, 2012

Hey hey, it's Clone Commander Wolffe!  It's a new-for-2012 figure which you might actually find at a store near you.  Articulation isn't exceptional, but it's a nice design with a good sculpt.  (It could stand to be cheaper, of course.)  So should you get it?

Q&A: Fall Break

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 21, 2012

Hey everybody, we're going to take a break this week for Q&A so I can work on some other projects, like Figure of the Day, Galactic Hunter Video Theater, and unpacking my toys from my last move which was now about 12 1/2-months ago.  As I go through the archives here in my offices, please don't hesitate to send in any questions you may have for an upcoming installment of everybody's favorite Star Wars Q&A column.*
