Target Setting Up For 2012 Launch

By Mike — Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Target stores are preparing for the Star Wars 2012 toy launch with a new aisle display. While it looks fantastic, it only makes us giddy for new merchandise and the January 30th street date! Please send us news of your finds as now is the time to hunt the stores. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,710

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 3, 2012

It's another Han Solo!  This unfrozen version was sold at Toys R Us a few years ago, and it's a mishmash of some of the better figures from the time.  Is it worth it?  Read on!

Walmart Has New Deluxe Vehicles

By Mike — Monday, January 2, 2012

New product is trickling in to stores for the New Year. We found the new wave of Deluxe Class 1 Vehicles at a Walmart in San Diego, CA. This wave includes the Naboo Royal Fighter with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Sith Speeder with Darth Maul, Barc Speeder with Clone Trooper, and STAP with Battle Droid. Happy Hunting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,709

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 2, 2012

It's the mail-in Prototype Boba Fett!  It's loosely based on the original costume made by Lucas' camp, with some changes because Hasbro had to work within the confines of an existing mold.  Is it worth the seven bucks?  Read on!

Image Bank: VC62 Han Solo (Revenge)

By Mike — Monday, January 2, 2012

This Han Solo features a redeco of the 2006 figure from the Shield Generator Assault Battle Pack . Overall, it's a good package since it offers a decent figure carded in the classic Kenner cardback and character photo. The paint job on this Han is improved from the Battle Pack version, giving him a much better likeness.

Image Bank: VC54 ARC Trooper Commander (Captain Fordo)

By Mike — Monday, January 2, 2012

The first figure in an Expanded Universe Vintage card is quite possibly the best of 2011. Hasbro does pretty much everything you could possibly want for ARC-77, based on the more popular episodes of the Tartakovsky micro-series. He's got interchangeable Phase I and II armor, a unique headsculpt (with a faux hawk and soul patch nonetheless!), and even comes with an instruction insert to show you how to attach both holsters.

Image Bank: VC65 TIE Fighter Pilot (Revenge)

By Mike — Sunday, January 1, 2012

This TIE Pilot figure was first released in the Evolutions set from 2008 and has been re-issued several times since. For carded collectors, this means collecting both the Revenge and Return variants and you gotta appreciate the retro Kenner beauty of both. 

Image Bank: VC28 Wedge Antilles

By Mike — Saturday, December 31, 2011

A holdover from 2010, Wedge trickled in limited quantities over the summer and demanded a higher premium before Hasbro made him a little more readily available in later assortments in the fall and promises to re-issue him again in 2012. Hasbro utilizes X-wing Luke's body from 2006 along with that figure's hole for a lightsaber hilt. It's a decent head likeness of Red 2 that deserves a spot in your collection...if you can find him. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,708

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 30, 2011

Oh Todo 360. We first heard about him from an early figure listing which didn't come to include him-- but we got him later, and he's pretty cool. (Only his head moves, though.)  Should you bring the Seth Green robot home? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,707

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 29, 2011

Another Geonosian Warrior came out with the new version of Delta Squad, which may be in stock at a Toys R Us near you. Go buy it.  But is this figure worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,706

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Today let's look at the animated incarnation of Ki-Adi-Mundi, a Jedi with a pretty surprisingly large amount of action figures behind him.  Is this incarnation worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,705

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 27, 2011

It says "Hasbro" on the box, but this Star Tours Yoda is more of an abomination.  It's ugly, and there are three variations of it involving lightsaber and skin coloring.  Should you get it? (No.) Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,704

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 26, 2011

This is the Yoda which was delayed from 2010.  It's... well, it has a lot of articulation, but is it worth ten friggin' bucks?  Probably not, but read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,703

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 23, 2011

It's R2-D2, the way you always wanted him... as a reindeer.  This 2002 exclusive was in short supply, but thanks to the collective short attention span of modern collectors he's cheap again!  Rejoice, and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,702

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 22, 2011

This 2009 Han Solo gave us the figure with a stormtrooper belt, helmet, and armor for some reason.  Well, it's still a decent figure, but getting his head right seems to be dang near impossible.  Read on!
