Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,838

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, June 29, 2012

Oh, what a Cutup this Clone Cadet is!  Cadet #4 is here, and we're still missing a few other ones.  Is this figure worth getting? I think so.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,837

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 28, 2012

She was spared two different death scenes only to wind up in sexy rags in The Force Unleashed! This hard-to-find Shaak Ti sports a lightsaber and not much of a costume.  Is it worth getting? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,836

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 27, 2012

It's the Rodian Jedi from Target!  This cool figure reuses Luke parts in a fun way that results in a big-headed alien with a laser sword.  You'll want this one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,835

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 26, 2012

If you collected the Jedi High Council sets, you'll end up with some figures like Anakin Skywalker that, by now, you may own 5 times over.  He's just a little different and has no accessories.  Should you care? Read on!

Review: CW12 Obi-Wan Kenobi

By Mike — Monday, June 25, 2012

The brave,noble, chin pondering Jedi Knight gets an update in 2012 that is an overall improvement in terms of sculpt, but loses some articulation in the process. Hasbro must not have been entirely happy with the version from 2011 and decided to issue a new, sterner looking, head sculpt a year later. Obi-Wan even comes with a climbing pack for some play value.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,834

There are figures you must own in your collection, but Passel Argente is not one of them.  It's a perfectly good figure with limited articulation, but it's not like he was a major character.  Is greenie  worth it? Read on!

Image Bank: VC56 Kithaba (Red Variant)

By Mike — Sunday, June 24, 2012

We typically like our variants with some point of interest or backstory to them, and while the red bandana Kithaba isn't by any stretch of the imagination a vinyl caped Jawa, the fact that Hasbro changed up to better match the actual character and vintage version is interestingly cool.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,833

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, June 22, 2012

Here's a neat one.  Check out the Tartakovsky Clone Trooper, part of a once-rare boxed set which is now a dirt-cheap boxed set.  It's disgusting how awesome this figure is for the price.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 21, 2012

Last but not least in this new wave of Vintage is Clone Pilot Odd Ball, a nicely-sculpted and pretty nicely painted new pilot! We didn't need a new mold, but Hasbro gave it to us and it turned out well.  How well?  Read on!

Carded Commander Fox

By Mike — Thursday, June 21, 2012

He's red and white and would have made a perfect Target exclusive! Jedi Temple Archives posts a carded shot of the new and upcoming Clone Commander Fox in his new Phase II armor.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,831

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Some figures I love, and you'll hate.  This Obi-Wan Kenobi may qualify, given it has an astonishingly good sculpt and Ewan McGregor likeness, but only 5 points of articulation.  Since I'm right and you're wrong, what's wrong with you?  Read on and find out!

Review: CW13 Captain Rex (Phase II Armor)

By Mike — Tuesday, June 19, 2012

The standard brand bearer and primary clone for The Clone Wars series gets an update in 2012 that transitions him into Phase II armor. The new Captain Rex looks absolutely magnificent, with great sculpting, awesome deco and weathering detail, and shares some parts with CW2 Phase II Clone Trooper. What he lacks in articulation (8 points), Rex certainly makes some up for in aesthetics. But will that make the cut for pose happy collectors?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,830

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 19, 2012

It's the 2012 Luke Skywalker in his Hoth gear! For the first time ever, this outfit gets things like wrist joints and ankles.  Was it worth the wait, or does Hasbro need to redo it already?  Read on!
