Oh, here's a neat one. Mostly neat due to the accessory, as the figure mold is showing its age, this Star Tours Darth Vader just hit a month and change back, reusing the 2005 "500th" Vader mold with a nifty new floating platform.
Hasbro sent us another exciting batch with a mix of new images of things we've seen and new stuff. The newest of the new is the Target Exclusive Star Wars The Search for Luke Skywalker set, which sports a retooled vintage Hoth Han Solo (hood not up, dagnabbit) alongside a newly-tooled Tauntaun and a Hoth Rebel Trooper. All this and Vintage Ponda Baba on card, plus more, after the break. CLICK IT.
It took a year and change, but Hasbro put out this original Gungan Warrior after the big shake-up that followed the Episode I line being changed to Power of the Jedi. Despite having only 6 joints, he's pretty good-- and has great detail on his skin, too! Read on!
It's not a major character, or a very popular one-- but it's a nice figure! The Neimoidian Warrior has a huge gun and an action feature, plus a removable helmet and good articulation. Should you buy a few? Maybe! Read on!
It's Barriss Offee! The Jedi hasn't received a new figure in years, but now we got two of her in a few months. How about that! This animated version is pretty slick, plus includes Geonosian Brain Worms. Should you track her down, now that she's showing up in stores? Read on!
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.
