The summer kicks off with a new print ad from Hasbro featuring the bounty hunter, Zam Wessel, and the Attack of the Clones wave in their retro vintage carded glory. Enjoy!
When first revealed to the public in 1999, another, better R2-D2 was shown around the same time. As such, this one didn't get as much heat, especially after we all found out his scene was deleted-- the booster rockets took on a new form in the sequels. Ah well. But is it neat? Read on!
One of the most likable critters from Jabba's Palace is the cackling puppet Salacious Crumb. He's a jerk. What's not to love? The 2010 release was a repaint of the 2007 release, hardly essential were it not for the fact it came with a new Jabba and Oola. So how is he different? Read on!
It's no secret, I love Ewoks. I think the fact that a lot of collectors hate them makes me like them even more. I was particularly jazzed to get the 2009 update of Paploo which, while I don't love as much as the 1984 original, I still like bunches. Is he worth your while? Read on!
It's the Evo Trooper, repainted and camo'd up for 2010! This figure was a Toys R Us exclusive and now... well, maybe you got one. If not, it's probably not there any more. Is this repaint worth it? Read on!
It's not superbly common that we get a character like Anakin Skywalker in a disguise like this Naboo Pilot uniform without a regular Naboo Pilot coming out first-- but hey, here we are! It's a neat figure with a neat ship. Are you excited? Should you be? Read on!
If you've been enjoying Hasbro's Kenner-style Special Action Figure Set 3-packs at Target, the guys at LightGeschindigKeit.de have fully-packaged shots of more of them-- with no new figures and a few decent repacks. As always, figures are from Star Wars and Empire. Read on!
Some like it Hoth, like this Rebel Trooper variant from last year! It's a Target exclusive, and pretty slick. It's similar to the 2009 carded release, save for the hair color. Should you get it? Read on!
Last year when Hasbro released the Spacetrooper, it had shoulder pads, a jetpack, and a droid bit. The droid bit is gone, and now that he's shipping from Hasbro in Saga Legends packaging, he's got a new (to him) gun. (The ammo thing isn't on the side like a Stormtrooper gun, rather it appears similar to a redeco of Wioslea's weapon.) Click through for bigger pics.
One of Jabba's dancers, this Rystall figure has been readily available online throughout the 2000s, cheaply, and has been blown out and later reissued as a Wal-Mart exclusive. In short: she's very very cheap. Should you get one? Read on!
After Hasbro gave us our first R3-A2, it was a little surprising to see them go back and try again-- but hey, it's way better! This build-a-droid was a wonderful release that, hopefully, you bought. Because it's great. Read on!
If you love Tusken Raider figures, Hasbro decided to do you a solid by releasing a "red clan" in early 2007 so you can add a little something new and different to your collection. I like this idea. So how did the "vintage" molded figure turn out? Read on!
This Shadow Trooper is supposed to be a Clone in bounty hunter disguise. Not a very good one, as it looks pretty much like the Shadow Troopers of Utapau. It's neat though-- as German exclusives that got dumped online go, it's nice enough. Read on!
Before you bring the funk-- as I assume that's what you'll be doing if you aren't watching Super 8-- check out this Super Battle Droid. It's part of a Battle Pack which is pretty easy to get, so if you're in the market for something new (to you) it might be worth a look. Read on!
In 1991, we found out Han and Leia had kids. In 2010, we got figures of them. Jacen Solo was born with the big Star Wars comeback of the 1990s but didn't get a toy until he was both an adult, and if memory serves he was quite dead by the time the toy happened. (SPOILERS?
