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?

It's hard to find, but pretty neat!  The 501st Legion Clone Trooper from the vintage line is mostly old parts, but new paint makes everything fun again.  Check it out!

Image Bank: VC20 Yoda (Canadian Variant)

By Mike — Thursday, June 14, 2012

We can blame Canada for this cool carded variant of VC20 Yoda. The Jedi Master is packaged in a Return of the Jedi cardback with the iconic photo that was featured in the original Kenner release instead of the more correct, and dare we say not as iconic, Revenge of the Sith card that was distributed here domestically.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,826 with Bonus Video

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 13, 2012

It ain't perfect, but this just-released Vintage 2012 Grand Moff Tarkin is pretty good.  This is a figure with great engineering and parts reuse, and unfortunate color and plastic choices.  (He's shiny.)  The cloth skirt doesn't look so bad in person, and the sculpt is exceptional.  Want to know more?  Read on, or watch the video after the jump!  (It's short, but not too short.)


Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,825

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 12, 2012

New! (But no video.)  Kithaba has red pants, just like the Barada figure you had or wished you had as a kid! He also has a variation, but you knew that.   Is he cool? YES! Read on!
