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!
Is that Anakin Skywalker package variant out already? What's the deal with all the problematic Jedi Luke figures? And what does 3D mean for you? All this and more awaits you in this week's Q&A!
So really, should you expect a Rebel Transport vehicle any time soon? And how long do mail-in figures take to arrive? And what is up with the Hasbro vintage cardback design team? All this and more, including Hutts, in this week's Q&A!
Have kids embraced vintage as a toy or as a packaging style? (And does it matter?) Will Hasbro ever give the Sandcrawler a new release at retail? (No.) And just how different were those Toys "R" Us 4-pack figures in 2002-2004, anyway? As an added bonus, we have seven super-short reviews of Vintage Wave 3 at the end. Stop pretending that you're working today, and read our new column!
More Hoth Trooper identity issues! We look at Evolutions action figure paint problems. And is it time to panic about your mail-in figures? All this and more can be yours!
Which Captain Rex is the new one, and how can you tell? What will another theatrical push do to help Star Wars in 2012? And yeah, why does Hasbro do package variants? All this and fuel injection, fuel injection, fuel injection after the break.
