Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,744

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 20, 2012

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.

Another Clone Trooper!  New sculpts aren't too common, but this is a new one.  Is it great?  Does it need some work?  Read on, and vote in the new poll about the second wave of Star Wars Movie Heroes figures too!

My flight just landed, but I wrote up this Rum Sleg a while ago.  It's pretty awesome, and sadly is not part of the Episode I Redux going on right now.  It's a solid design, if a little weird, and feels very Star Wars-y despite

So, Clone Commander Jet.  I know what you want to read is commentary on Toy Fair, but, as a member of the toy industry, I'm in meetings and trying to figure out how to cram a pile of paperwork into a carry-on bag with my dirty socks.  I'll try to write something on the plane or as soon as I can get sme decent time to collect my notes.  This trooper was delayed, and features a unique accessory.

Look at this Pit Droid.  Just look at it.  It's a reissue, more or less, of the Episode I "exclusive" figure from Europe and Asia.  It's pretty good.  Read on!

New Rebel Pilots and Ewoks Battle Packs

By Mike — Saturday, February 11, 2012

There's more on the way for 2012 including a new Pilots Battle Pack with Porkins and Tiree and an Ewoks set with Kneesa and Teebo courtesy of POTF2.com. We like the nod to the animated series with the Ewoks set but did Porkins go on a Slim Fast diet?.

Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro Image Bank Up!

By Mike — Saturday, February 11, 2012

We have posted up our Hasbro Collector Media Event photos to our Image Bank. There's a bunch of eye candy to see, including the amazing MTT, a brand new Tarkin, a Bespin Gown Leia, Weequay, and so much more! Did you ever dream of having a Jar Jar in carbonite? Well that just came true! A new SDCC exclusive that's based on the Bespin Chamber with 6 figures and a frozen Gungan!

New! You probably bought this Darth Maul by now, knowing full well that it's the first completely new sculpt based on the movie costume since 2005.  It has ball joints.  It has ball elbows.  It has a new head.  But is this enough?

Because you asked!  Aurra Sing is part of that frighteningly new Walmart exclusive wave of Discover the Force figures with awkward, sure-to-be-damaged 3D glasses hanging off the side.  I don't doubt she will be the most popular figure in the wave, with an antenna (finally!) and an awesome lightsaber suitcase.

This bright orange Bomb Squad Trooper comes from a new Battle Pack with 3 new Clones in it.  Naturally, it's the one that sells out first.  Should you chase him down?  Read on!

The Force "Discovered": Walmart Exclusives Rolling Out

By Mike — Wednesday, February 8, 2012

The 1999 party continues and it's happening at Walmart. The Discover The Force exclusives are now being put out just in time for the release of The Phantom Menace 3D this weekend. Our initial concerns about single case assortments being found have been proven unwarranted by the wonderful revelation that Walmart stores (most of them anyway) will be placing a POS display with all 17 exclusive pieces including 12 figures, 2 Battle Packs, 2 Vehicles, and the Qui-Gon Jinn Electronic Lightsaber. Discover The Force indeed!

Another Geonosian Warrior?  Yup! You can build an army out of the different versions Hasbro made, including this 2-pack release from 2010.  Is this now-clearanced figure worth it?  Read on, and be sure to vote in the new FOTD poll!

This is the brand-new Anakin Skywalker figure that Hasbro just released in the last couple of weeks.  It looks a lot like the other ones, but it is indeed a brand-new, thinner sculpt with new accessories.  Do you need a lightsaber launcher?  Well, no, of course you don't.  But aren't you the slightest bit curious if it's any fun?  I am.

Discover The Force Figures Are Out

By Mike — Monday, February 6, 2012

The Walmart exclusive Discover The Force wave of action figures have finally hit the U.S. SWCollector reports finding the entire assortment at a store in Texas. The pricepoint is relative to the Movie Heroes line at $8.96 each and looks to be packed 1 per case. This may portend to tough hunting in the onset for the likes of Ric Olie and G8-R3, since these are a few of the figures in the wave which aren't planned to be re-issued in Vintage cards later in the year.
