Image Bank: CW28 Clone Pilot Goji

By Mike — Thursday, September 23, 2010

The Y-Wing Pilot from the Battle of Malastare is next up on our Image Bank. CW28 Clone Pilot Goji is a nice nod to "Gojira" or Godzilla to you Westerners. His helmet even bears the markings of the Japanese super lizard.

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 22, 2010

The best update of the 1980s vintage figure is the 2009 Luke Skywalker with his poncho from the Battle for Endor Battle Pack. It's likely still available near you and includes a Warok.  What makes it so great?  And could it be better?  Read on!

By Mike — Tuesday, September 21, 2010

The all new CW26 Flamethrower Clone Trooper may not be what J. Geils had in mind, but who's to argue? Along with two types of flame accessories, you get a stand and die to play your Galactic Battle Game. Don't forget to send in your POP's for the Sergeant Bric mailaway!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,374

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 20, 2010

Here's a stunner-- this new Cad Bane isn't merely a retooled figure. The head, body, and most of the entire thing is new construction, and it has a spectacular range of motion.  Oh, and his bike is pretty cool too.  Want to see more?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,373

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 17, 2010

If there's one constant in the universe it's that you never know what you might get from a General Grievous action figure.  This one is pretty solid-- huge feet, swappable arms, and a nice sculpt ensure he doesn't fall to pieces or melt on you, but his legs could misshapen with time.  Would you believe it's one of the best Grievous figures in years?  Read on!

Q&A Bonus: 2010 Vintage Hasbro Vintage Star Wars Foil Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 16, 2010

We got a good question about the new variants hitting stores, so here's an adequate answer!

Is there a foil hunt version for every TVC figure? If so, that sure is a lot of hunting to do *sigh*. If not, which ones do have a foil version?

Figure of the Day: Day 1,371

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Still available in some towns, this Shadow Stormtrooper cast in clear plastic is an unusual creature in our favorite action figure line.  Rarely does Hasbro do Star Wars releases cast entirely in clear plastic, but here you go.  Is it worth it?   Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,370

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 14, 2010

It's orange!  This Clone Trooper has a jetpack and comes with several other swell figures.  Is this one different enough to add to your growing squad of citrus-flavored white-armored troopers?  Read on!

HASBRO Star Wars Q&A (Post Celebration V Edition)

By Adam May — Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Galactic Hunter: The easiest and hardest question to tackle was partially answered at Celebration V. As collectors asked whether the Young Boba Fett's Slave I from The Clone Wars animated series would lead to Slave 1 from The Empire Strikes Back, the answer was simple and obvious —'Yes, if it sells well enough.' So there's an additional sales pitch! The question is, hypothetically (aside from paint ops) what changes could/would be made, and what figures (again hypothetically) would the team like to see included? This would be the perfect chance to get a mustachioed Bespin Guard out, or is he going to get the fully carded treatment?

Galactic Hunter: Did all of the children swapping droid parts (and showing off their "kitbash" droids) at the along with the adults offering to buy them do anything to persuade Team Star Wars to put together a little Build-A-Droid/Droid Factory playset? (It can be mostly cardboard even - it's obvious that the droids are the focus and play pattern. That was COOL!)
