Facebook Shot Reveals New Disney Star Tours Astromech Pictures

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 9, 2012

About 20 domes, 10 bodies, and a whole mess of droids were posted to the Star Tours Facebook page.  To date this is the clearest shot of the robots, which gives us a look at the various Mickey Mouse ears, confirmation that Goofy's hat does indeed sport ears, and, of course, this isn't everything.  Other hats, like a very Jack Sparrow-looking pirate hat, were shown in previous preview images so it's a pretty safe bet what you're seeing here isn't the entire line.

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 8, 2012

Day 1,800?!? Where has my life gone?  It's time to look at Exar Kun in what may be one of the longest-running daily toy review columns anywhere. So how is this increasingly expensive figure? And just how expensive did he get in the last year or so?

It geekily inspired me to load up "Clash of the Lightsabers" on my iPod and photograph him on the POTJ Bespin playset to capture the essence of that scene and…wow...THAT's it.

Image Bank Review: Duel On Naboo Battle Pack

By Mike — Saturday, May 5, 2012

Here are the Nth releases of these characters within the past 4 months that could potentially cause some redundancy and over saturation in retail. From the head up, they're excellent, and you may argue that at least one or two are the best yet. But the 5 points of articulation are causing much menace for a few collectors, especially since these head sculpts are meant for more action.
