Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,779

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 9, 2012

It's interesting to see that this Battle Droid is getting another run, and is one of the oldest figures to get a redeco in the line's run. (First issue 1998, this issue 2012.)  So the STAP is quite different, but how about the figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,778

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, April 6, 2012

It's Hasbro, and it comes with a new Astromech droid, so Jedi Mickey oddly makes the cut for Figure of the Day.  Is it worth it? No. But you're bored at work so read on!

Vintage Wave 4 Loose: Evazan, Kithaba

By Mike — Friday, April 6, 2012

An eBay seller from Malaysia is selling some loose samples of The Vintage Collection Wave 4 and has added a few nice shots. This assortment, which was held over from last year, includes Dr. Evazan, Nom Anor, Kithaba, and Aayla Secura.

Image Bank: VC92 Anakin Skywalker

By Mike — Friday, April 6, 2012

Deviations from the normal course can at times turn into disaster, and then there are the few instances where it results into brilliant execution. The new Clone Wars "realistic" Anakin Skywalker has to be considered the best one of this character yet. Don't believe me? Take a look at the comparison shot with VC13 Anakin Skywalker to make you marvel in its superiority.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,777

Oola-la!  This super-articulated take on Jabba's ex-dancer and pet snack turned out quite well and has her costume rendered largely in soft goods, which is, to say the least, unusual.  Check her out!

Image Bank: VC93 Darth Vader

By Mike — Thursday, April 5, 2012

Let's get this out of the way. That cardback is infallible like a holy relic and brings geeky tears to my eyes. Having a Darth Vader on a Kenner Star Wars card brings back so many memories, it's like an old childhood friendship rekindled. The action figure, while not entirely perfect, is pretty awesome too.

Image Bank: VC94 Imperial Navy Commander

By Mike — Thursday, April 5, 2012

Imperial Navy Commander? Death Star Trooper? Why not keep it traditional planet obliterating evil with Death Squad Commander? The cardback is beautifully and nostalgically Kenner and the figure itself is certainly the best iteration of this character yet.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,775

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 3, 2012

The third time is the charm!  We got R2-B1 before in 2000 and 2007, but this is the one you'll want. This "newly" released hard-to-find Walmart exclusive started hitting big in the last week, so did you get yours? And should you?  Read on!

Image Bank: VC95 Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit)

By Mike — Monday, April 2, 2012

I've been waiting for this Luke Hoth to ride the awesome Target Vintage Tauntaun. In many ways, he looks great, super articulated, and a decent head likeness. It's the opening scene from The Empire Strikes Back. How can you get any more iconic than that?

Image Bank: VC96 Darth Malgus

By Mike — Monday, April 2, 2012

Darth Malgus is the bawz. He's like a Sebastian Shaw Anakin/Vader on super soldier serum. The antagonist of The Old Republic MMO is plasticized in all his Sith glory for The Vintage Collection and we've just added him to our Image Bank!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,774

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 2, 2012

It's Clone Trooper Kix, one of very few Clone medics in the entire line. There are hundreds of these things, but doctors?  Like one.  What are they, disposable?  Oh yeah, right. Hm. Anyway, go check him out!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,773

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 30, 2012

Check out Clone Commander Cody in his Phase II armor.  It's good-- new helmet, new sculpt, and a pain-in-the-neck backpack peg await you on this newish figure. Go get one, won't you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,772

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 29, 2012

It's Qui-Gon Jinn with Kenner-esque shoulder and hip joints, the best head sculpt ever, and a light-up lightsaber.  How oddly delightful!  Should you get one?  I think so.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,771

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 28, 2012

From a semi-recent Battle Pack, Colonel Dyer is, for all intents and purposes, our best update of the Kenner Imperial Officer figure. Black uniform, gloves, and a blaster... he's our guy!  So is the set worth your while? (Yes.) Read on!

Carded Tarkin, Nikto, Marek, Vizla

By Mike — Wednesday, March 28, 2012

New carded photos of the upcoming Grand Moff Tarkin, Galen Marek, Shae Vizla, and Nikto have been posted by Sandtroopers.com! That Kenner style Tarkin Star Wars card is simply sublime!
