SL05 Jango Running Change

By Mike — Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Another running change, and this time it's a good one, for SL05 Jango Fett reported by Jedi Temple Archives via the Australian Mousedroid.com Forums. It appears that the less articulated, pre-posed 2002 sculpt that is available in U.S. stores now may be swapped for the TAC57 sculpt, which would obviously be preferred.

BMF at TRU.com

By Mike — Tuesday, October 5, 2010

The awesome and elusive Walmart exclusive Jabba's Throne if now back IN STOCK online for $38.88 each. Apparently, we also have to watch for rising prices at WM since it was first originally listed for $34.88. Still a set worth the money if you have yet to pick this up. Click here to order!

Image Bank: CW23 Kit Fisto

By Mike — Tuesday, October 5, 2010

A vast improvement from last year's release, CW23 Kit Fisto is another great figure in the 2010 Clone Wars assortment. Hasbro gives him well articulated legs and ankles this time along with a soft goods skirt so he can easily fit into the cockpit of his new Walmart exclusive Jedi Starfighter. Not surprisingly, Kit has been one of the harder to find at least in this reporter's area. Don't hesitate to pick him up of you see him. Make sure to post your comments! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,384

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 4, 2010

Rumors abound that this Clone Commander figure from the comic packs earlier in 2010 are starting to hit closeout shelves-- but we haven't seen them yet.  It's a repaint, sure, but is it worth it?  Read on!

Image Bank: CW11 Aurra Sing

By Mike — Monday, October 4, 2010

A wonderfully executed figure with the perfect sculpt and great articulation, CW11 Aurra Sing is the best yet, and if you haven't picked her up, you need to. A brand new super articulated sculpt that is evolutions above her POTJ and Saga iterations, Sing is a pasty yet sexy volatile piece of plastic. If we were to nitpick, an additional dead Jedi lightsaber would have been fantastic. Please post your comments on the bounty hunter! 

WM Exclusive Kit Fisto Starfighter Found

By Mike — Sunday, October 3, 2010

Walmart Malevolence DVD Sets Out

By Mike — Saturday, October 2, 2010

The Walmart exclusive Malevolence DVD 2 Packs have been spotted at a store in San Diego for $15.97 each. Each set comes with a DVD containing an episode from The Clone Wars Malevolence story arc. Other than this, the figures have been re-issued from previously released blister cards. 

Image Bank: CW10 General Grievous

By Mike — Saturday, October 2, 2010

You can now have your Separatist commander hard-boiled or deep fried. Hasbro retooled the previous TCW versions and gave him additional articulation (especially in the legs), interchangeable battle damage parts, new head sculpt, but alas, less ambidexterity and fire power. CW10 General Grievous may be the best  TCW version yet, but if there's one complaint, it's that his shoulder plates do not stay on and we recommend keeping the rubber bands on the hands because they are not sculpted well enough to grip those sabers.

Image Bank: CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer

By Mike — Saturday, October 2, 2010

Serve the public trust. Protect the innocent. Uphold the law. Yes, CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer sorta reminds us of this guy. As with most Clone Wars designed action figures, the sculpt is true to the series. While the limited articulation in the legs holds this figure back from a poseability standpoint, the shield/firing missile launcher combo is a nice touch.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,383

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 1, 2010

It's a fact: Pit Droid figures are great.  In 1999 and 2000, Hasbro really cranked them out with several in the USA and six more being, for the time, temporary exclusives.  This one came from a 2-pack sold in North America-- how is it?  Read on!
 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,382

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 30, 2010

What would C-3PO look like if he had a torso storage bin and a laser finger?  Probably a lot like I-5YQ here, a Wal-Mart exclusive from about a year ago. The figure combines new parts with the limbs from 4-LOM, and the end result is a pretty distinctive looking robot.  Do you need one?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,381

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 29, 2010

You saw the son, now see the father!  Anakin Skywalker in his cold gear isn't quite as snappy as Hoth Luke, but hey, it's pretty good.  How does this frozen Jedi stack up?  Read on!
