The second wave of Movie Heroes has less re-issue more new sculpt with action feature. More focused on play than display, they're still very displayable unlike the old action feature laden figures of old. A new iteration of Queen Amidala in Theed Palace battle outfit is most welcomed since we haven't had a version since 1999 and it badly needed an updated. How does she measure up?
We second our dose of pasty white, angry, former padawans turned gun for hire with the all new Aurra Sing from the Discover The Force Walmart exclusive wave of figures. Twelve years is a long time to upgrade from the almost pre-posed Power of the Jedi figure, but it's a worthy and even definitive effort.
Hasbro has officially released their Toy Fair presentation to fan media and we have uploaded it to our Image Bank for your viewing pleasure.
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.
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.
