Today we look at vintage cardback logos, continue with your obvious disdain toward the lack of vehicles shown at Toy Fair, and we look at new villain figures... that we aren't getting yet. Oh, and we look at the amazing changes to Teebo's hat and how things don't seem to necessarily line up between the movie, the toys, and the photography from Lucasfilm. What an exciting mix! Read on for more and send in your questions for next week's mailbag!
So when is Hasbro going to give us that Vintage Yak Face we all so obviously need? And should we keep pre-mourning vehicles? Sure, why not. And why is Yoda's lightsaber painted all funky these days? All this and more await you in this week's Q&A, send in questions as we're reaching the end of the mailbag!
So what kind of robe will Barriss Offee have? Why does Hasbro make so many trooper figures? (Really? We're asking this now?) And should you be worried about those Raiders of the Lost Ark figures coming to Comic-Con? All this and more, if you just read on!
So will we get more Galactic Heroes now that the line has been declared over? How about Mighty Muggs? And can we trust Hasbro's release date presentations? Of course not, haven't you been reading my columns?!? All this and more, so read on!
Welcome back! I've got a mix of questions from Toy Fair 2011 in New York concerning plastic cloaks, new head sculpts, and even some vehicles. I'd say "you won't want to miss this one," but hey, maybe you will. But if you've got nothing better to do? Read on!
We've got more vintage packaging variants, some nice variants you'll never see, and, of course, some Toy Fair tirades at teh end in this week's Q&A! Read on, write in, and may the Force be with you!
Could Saga Legends really be on the way out? (Of course not.) Is Darth Vader's TIE Fighter due for an update? And did you miss Clone Trooper Jesse yet? All this and ramblings on Vintage Wave 5 await you in this week's Q&A!
We look at Hasbro's best big vehicles, the length of The Clone Wars on TV and in the aisle, and of course, more astromech droids. All this and some notes on the new Attack of the Clones Vintage wave can be yours in this week's Q&A!
So should you expect Hasbro to sell you a Giant Star Destroyer? Probably not. Should you expect the theatrical cuts of the films on Blu-Ray? Also probably not. And do Wooof and Giran share the same head? There's a pattern here-- read about all this and more in this week's Q&A! (Also, I found a case of figures from 2005 at a store-- read on for more!)
You're not happy with new vintage action figures you're seeing-- what else is new? You love Gentle Giant's giant 12-inch figures and have questions-- good for you! We have some answers. You're also wanting to know if Hasbro might do variant vintage cardbacks. Geez, it's all about vintage now isn't it? Read on and send in your questions!
Is there a future for comic packs? We look at this, as well as Republic Gunship repaints and variations, complaints about vintage repacks, and the fine line between toys and stuff for collectors in this week's Q&A!
It's a new year, but these questions come from the tail end of the 2010 mail bag. We have things like the tri-pod laser cannon not meeting your expectations. We look at big expensive LEGO toys and why you should buy them before it's too late. Heck, we even look at various stylized collectible Star Wars lines. And to round it all up, I rant about how Hasbro found another way to make today's best figures yesterday's news with new developments in their G.I. Joe line. Wow!
It's the last Q&A of 2010! Let's look at development delays, the vintageness of the new R2-D2 figure, and the chances of you ever seeing a Baron Papanoida figure again-- animated or otherwise! Read on, and send me your questions for 2011!
Did you miss out on the new TIE Bomber yet? Possibly! Did the Galactic Heroes AT-ST make it to Kohl's? You got an iPad, so what comics should you download? All this and ramblings on the new Outer Space Men action figure line, after the jump!
What's the ratio of foil chase figures to the normals? Should you be worried if you missed Ahsoka and C-3PO Clone Wars figures over the past few years? Just how different is that new AT-ST Driver? All this and a translated of the aurebesh lettering on the new AT-RT with Boil vehicle set await you in today's exciting almost-the-holidays installment of Q&A!
