Saturday Cardback: Anakin Skywalker

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, August 14, 2010

We've had Obi-Wan Kenobi, yesterday was General Grievous, and today it's Anakin Skywalker!  This is the one that may have a running change to "Darth Vader" on the nameplate, so you may as well get this special version if you're here.  And if you aren't?  Well, you're dead to me.

I live-tweeted the panel, but if you missed it, here are my posts in reverse order-- included are highlights from the slides as well as commentary. Big news: 3-Packs 3-Pack, Kohl's Galactic Heroes AT-ST, Vintage AOTC wave! It's messy.

Figure of the Day: Day 1,348

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 13, 2010

On sale at Celebration V-- with practically no line at all-- is a two-pack with Fixer and Camie Marstrap.  This is a great set-- the comic is nice, but the fact that you're getting action figures of a legendary scene you've likely never seen is pretty amazing.  She's well-done too, so read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,347

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 12, 2010

On sale now-- I just saw the line, so I can confirm this-- is Zuckuss, or 4-LOM in Kenner colors.  I love this figure-- the paint job is delightfully retro and the gag naming is delightful.  You do need it.  Read on!

TRU Legacy of the Darkside Packs Found

By Mike — Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Our trusty hunter, Mickey Gunslinger, finds the new TRU Legacy of the Darkside 2 packs in Chandler, AZ, except for the Grievous set, which looks to be the popular one based on the re-release of the pre-Cyborg Grievous. The other two sets include Anakin/Vader and Boba Fett. Pricepoint is $17.99 each. Happy hunting and please report those finds!

 

Figure of the Day: Day 1,346

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 11, 2010

What a difference a year makes!  In 2009, this was one of the hottest topics and most-debated issues, because Captain Typho was really hard to get.  Now?  Well, you're probably more concerned with Celebration V than how amazing this figure is, complete with crazy gear and amazing detail.  Show some respect-- read on!

This Is It! THE Must-Have Exclusive at Celebration V

By Adam May — Tuesday, August 10, 2010

So here's the thing, we're literally HOURS (I'm counting them) from Celebration V in Orlando, FL. and friends keep asking me what is the must-have Celebration V exclusive, and, while I'd LOVE a Wampa Rug/Tauntaun Sleeping Bag — which I'd have to use if I brought them home (I'd take pictures of my exile) I know in my bones that the 4-LOM/Zuckuss Retro-Vintage Mix-Up Combo by Hasbro is the one thing I cannot live without.

Figure of the Day: Day 1,345

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 10, 2010

You may be able to find this Tall Jedi Padawan if you go to Florida this week!  The Star Tours exclusive was reportedly not a huge hit, so some might be around in a Disney park near... well, someone.  Is he worth grabbing?  Read on!

The Imperial AT-AT (2010) — DisPLAY With Your Toys

By Adam May — Monday, August 9, 2010

Since not all of our Imperial AT-AT Walkers were asked to take part in the 11:38 "sneak attack" series, we were heading in another direction. This is the first of a series of photo montages of the new Imperial AT-AT "in play". We assume that this part of Blizzard Force is taking on the first wave of Rebel scum (no relation) to make way for Darth Vader's arrival. (Once again, note that the all-new Imperial AT-AT comes with ONE (1) AT-AT Driver and ONE (1) Speederbike.) Some of the products shown are not currently available at retail, but we hope they're in your collection anyway.

Figure of the Day: Day 1,344

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 9, 2010

Say hi to Clone Trooper Jek!  Today's Figure of the Day debuted as an exclusive but eventually had an individually carded rerelease-- which was slightly harder to get.  Should you have picked up this figure from The Clone Wars when you had the chance?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,343

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 6, 2010

Hey kids, it's the first-ever Wedge Antilles action figure!  He has 6 joints, a Hoth pilot outfit, and basically is worth getting only if you're a card-carrying member of the Cult of Wedge.  But should you read on anyway?  Yes.
