Toy Fair: Hasbro Star Wars Presentation

By Mike — Thursday, March 1, 2012

Hasbro has officially released their Toy Fair presentation to fan media and we have uploaded it to our Image Bank for your viewing pleasure.

New Star Wars Vintage, Clone Wars Casepacks (And Pre-Orders) Revealed

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Both Entertainment Earth and Diamond put up some new Star Wars items today, including swell new Vintage Collection and Clone Wars action figure cases.  (And Transformers Bot Shots, which if you like Battle Beasts, you're probably going to love.)  Want to know more?  Check it out after the jump.

 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,751

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Check out Mace Windu, a retooled Vintage figure from early last year.  It's different, but is it different enough? That's why we're here.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,750

Check out another Clone Trooper!  This one is yellow with blast damage, and was exclusive to Entertainment Earth in 2005.  Is it good?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,749

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!

Image Bank: VC91 Rebel Pilot (Mon Calamari)

By Mike — Sunday, February 26, 2012

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.

Image Bank: VC90 Colonel Cracken (Millennium Falcon Crew)

By Mike — Sunday, February 26, 2012

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.

Image Bank: VC89 Lando Calrissian (Sandstorm Outfit)

By Mike — Friday, February 24, 2012

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.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,748

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, February 24, 2012

This is the new Clone Trooper packaged with a BARC Speeder which you can buy pretty much anywhere.  Basically, it mixes up existing figures and gives you a ton of guns!  How is it?  Read on!

Image Bank: VC88 Princess Leia (Sandstorm Outfit)

By Mike — Friday, February 24, 2012

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.

Image Bank: VC87 Luke Skywalker (Lightsaber Construction)

By Mike — Thursday, February 23, 2012

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.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,747

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 23, 2012

Rounding out Yoda's squad of clones from the first episode of the TV show, Clone Trooper Rys is red and not terribly easy to find.  Should you get one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,746

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 22, 2012

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!

Bespin Battle And Duel On Naboo Battle Packs

By Mike — Tuesday, February 21, 2012

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.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,745

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 21, 2012

This Han Solo is one of the best Hoth figures!  He can't sit on a Tauntaun, but the goggles can be removed and he has a working holster.  Which, really, makes me happy.  Will you like it?  Read on!
