While the head sculpt is "New Hope" Chewie, being originally released as part of the 2005 Early Bird Kit promotion, Hasbro spattered some slightly distinguishing paint apps for the Hoth treatment. The body itself, with its awesome sculpt and mostly masterfully hidden articulation, not to mention the almost perfect scale, originated from VOTC Chewie in 2004. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just repaint it. It certainly applies here.
SL17 C-3PO is a repack of The Saga Collection release from 2006 featuring the golden deity on his Ewok throne. The vac metal is quite striking and perhaps too clean on this figure, but the overall result is good and true to that particular scene from Return of the Jedi. Would an Ewok fire spit Han and Luke be too much too ask from Hasbro? Probably.
Hasbro corrected the first release of SL12 Obi-Wan Kenobi, the AOTC "you don't want to sell me death sticks" version from Saga 2003, to the intended and represented, not to mention much better done, TAC iteration from 2008. How do mix ups like these happen at the factory? We can only guess, but Hasbro may need to go home and rethink their life...err...quality control.
Another shipment of these exclusive figures showed up, so it's time to showcase/plug another one with Deliah Blue, the Zeltron lady from the Legacy comic series. How is this red-skinned space babe? Read on!
A repaint of the original white super-articulated Revenge of the Sith Clone Trooper from 2005 for the ROTS Skirmish in the Senate Battlepack, this Shock Trooper has seen many lives as either a Saga Legends or Battlepack repack. Still, the sculpt is good and the deco is appealing, therefore, he's still a decent army builder to beef up Palpatine's goon squad.
Hey, it's a Bonus Pit Droid! Back in 2001, these thinks were basically the bigfoot of action figures-- you've never seen them, and you never will. In 2007, Hasbro reissued them and now you can get them cheap-- that's life! So is it worth getting these legends? Read on!
Hey kids, it's BG-J38, another one of Jabba's gambling companions! Basically. This Return of the Jedi robot was rarely seen in the movie, and also rarely seen at retail. Is it worth putting one together? Read on!
Just how many different Battle Droid figures can Hasbro give us? TONS. This one uses the new body mold, but paints it differently giving you yet another unique configuration of the ubiquitous robots. Any good? Yes. Read on!
This figure may not be the most articulated or even definitive R2-D2, but boy is he fun with all the flashing lights and electronic sounds. A repack of the Revenge of the Sith figure from 2005, this mold actually saw its first incarnation in plastic as the POTF2 Power FX R2-D2.
Hey kids, it's the new Clone Trooper figure which, oddly, is actually somewhat easy to find! He's got more articulation than ever, and comes on a nice vintage cardback. So how many can I put you down for? Read on!
Sony teams up with Hasbro to promote their Clone Wars Adventures online game. Basic The Clone Wars and Saga Legends action figure blisters are being affixed with stickers touting a 30 day trial membership and 450 Station Cash. These stickers are showing up at Toys R Us stores this week.
That's right, you heard right-- another Clone Trooper, this time a Target-specific version with a unique design on only one shoulder. I'm assuming it's a different rank or something. Are they any good? You get two in a box, so read on!
He was in the original Star Wars in the background, and now he gets to talk and be annoyed by Anakin Skywalker. Admiral Yularen was a slow seller in 2009, but now he's gone and you can't have one. Too bad. Should you be upset? Read on!
