OK, so we just posted a gallery-- but don't you want to read more about the Mon Calamari Rebel Pilot? If you do, today's Figure of the Day is for you! The good news: he can sit in some A-Wings. The bad? Not well. Read on!
We normally like our Calamari lightly breaded, sauteed in garlic butter, with spicy cherry peppers, then pan fried to a golden crisp. But this new Mon Calamari A-Wing Pilot from the ROTJ Blu-Ray Deleted Scene is the business.
We finally have the Cracken released, and he's a mix of old and new. The head and top torso are new while the bottom legs are from 2006's Rebel Trooper (SAGA046). The actual figure doesn't look anything like the guy on the cardback, who actually bears a close resemblance to one of the kiosk folks at my local mall, stubble and all.
Hello, what have we here? When it comes to Lando figures, the Skiff Guard outfit is probably the most popular, and Hasbro decided to add a chock full of accessories, including a Skiff Guard helmet and Force Pike, to elevate the new Deleted Scene figure from good to extraordinarily good. You can multi-task Lando from Skiff to Sandstorm by swapping out his hood and poncho.
At first glance, the value proposition for this figure, since it could potentially hang next to a 2011 Revenge Slave Leia on a store peg, may only appear to be the new Deleted Scene specific accroutements with less bling (i.e. slave chain), But Hasbro made some nuanced paint app changes to give a slight improvement to this version of the 2009 Slave Leia as well by lightening up her top, boots, and making the lips less starkly red.
The overall presentation is good, and Hasbro was even mindful enough to allow less poof on the cape by allowing you to tie it up in the back.
When Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight/Endor Capture was released in 2010, we thought he was the epitome of Luke action figureness. The end all. The template.
Way back in 1995, this Han Solo may have been one of the first new figures you bought. He was packed heavily, and tended to stick around. We've had dozens of Han figures since then, so how does this one stack up? Read on!
We lacked the visual aid due to Hasbro deciding not to release the Toy Fair Star Wars presentation to the collecting sites, but thanks to POTF2.com, we can now view the slide showing the upcoming Bespin Battle and Duel On Naboo Battle Packs.
While this new Movie Heroes Jar Jar Binks isn't perfect-- we already know a new one is coming after him-- it's still fun and a refreshing take on a character we haven't seen much of lately. Should you get it? Read on!
There are a lot of Wedge Antilles figures out there, and this one is-- in some respects-- one of the best. It was packaged with an X-wing at Target a few years ago, and it's taller than the Vintage one which will be reissued shortly.
