Hasbro Preview For NYCC

By Mike — Thursday, October 13, 2011

Hasbro threw a Preview Night Party last night for New York Comic-Con and offered some tidbits of what's to come later this evening. In their Star Wars room, the H people showed the already seen ROTJ sandstorm deleted scene figures, a new play concept showcasing half inch scale cutsie figurines and vehicles called Battle Pods, and in what is sure to cause some consternment from adult collectors but play appeal for the kiddies; the return of the "action feature". Shown were the upcoming Qui-Gon Jin and Obi-Wan Kenobi action figures with light up lightsabers for the upcoming TPM 3D release assortment.

If you like weird, the Star Tours Luggage Attendant should be worth a look.  You bought a similar figure, but it wasn't orange!  So get this one.  Read on!

It's Kit Fisto, an amazing revision of a great character. Mostly.  Some details aren't perfectly true to the film or to the needs of the toy, but it's still pretty good.  Good enough?  Read on!

It's new, and exclusive!  The Spider Assassin Droid comes in a new Toys R Us exclusive set with two clones-- and isn't a bad little robot.  (Well, OK, he's evil but it's a good toy.)  Should you go run and get one? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,648

In the comics, ARC Trooper Alpha-17 was usually blue.  OK, pretty much 100% blue.  There was a more Episode III-esque redesign, but for some reason we got a red one in an Evolutions set a few years back.  Is it worth a look?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's Lieutenant Thire!  There are two similar-enough versions of this figure and you probably will want to get at least one of them.  Why not?  He's from a great episode.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,646

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 5, 2011

It's a new Even Piell, the first all-new sculpt for the character in quite some time!  (Almost 10 years!)  This short figure has a nifty climbing backpack and a head sculpt that feels like it's a little fragile.  Read on!

Hasbro sure likes Captain Rex, and this brand-new version is based on the newer sculpt, has a couple of jet packs, and ball-jointed hips-- plus a cloth "skirt.'  Is it worth the upgrade?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,644

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 3, 2011

It's a Tactical Droid!  This TA-175 turned out great and comes with a tank-- which, even at $20, makes him cheaper than the individually carded Tactical Droid from 2010.  Should you get him?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,643

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, October 1, 2011

It's another Geonosian Drone!  Hasbro made a bunch of these out of one basic mold, and it's a good thing-- they all turned out pretty well!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,641

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 28, 2011

I hope you love Republic Commando figures like this Omega Squad Sniper, an exclusive that you can't easily get any more. Well, unless you count eBay.  Does this figure know where the blacktion is, or is it just another repaint?  Read on!

Hevy's New Clone Trooper Friend is Quite the Cutup

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 28, 2011

From Domino Squad, it's Cutup!  This new redeco appeared on eBay and has not yet been confirmed by Hasbro.  Is it something they'll announce at New York Comic Con next month...

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,640

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 27, 2011

It's Aurra Sing, cartoon style!  Since the new movie one isn't ready yet, this is currently the best version of the character you can buy as a toy.  Heck, it might be still next year-- we'll have to wait and see.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,639

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 26, 2011

Since 2009, Cad Bane has been given at least 4 different action figures, including this one in a fallen Clone's armor.  I like it a lot-- he has a few neat features, a Holocron, and a head without the cyber-cheek implants.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,638

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2011

This Chewbacca has a good amount of gear, a great sculpt, and is friggin' Chewie.  On the other hand, the face paint could be better-- you should still look this one up, though.  Read on!
