Image Bank: 01 Aurra Sing (Discover The Force)

By Mike — Sunday, March 4, 2012

We second our dose of pasty white, angry, former padawans turned gun for hire with the all new Aurra Sing from the Discover The Force Walmart exclusive wave of figures. Twelve years is a long time to upgrade from the almost pre-posed Power of the Jedi figure, but it's a worthy and even definitive effort.

Preview: Yoda With 3D Glasses Minibust

By Mike — Thursday, March 1, 2012

Gentle Giant has always been pretty ingenius when it comes to their Holiday Edition busts. We can usually expect some kind of twist on a Star Wars theme like a or Holiday Max Rebo or Yakface. However, when it comes to their summer convention exclusives, it's been an overwhelming offering of Clones and Troopers. There's perfectly sensible reasoning behind this, since these types of minibusts normally sell through fairly well. For the 2012 convention season, starting with this month's WonderCon, Gentle Giant takes a different approach and offers a piece that is fun, whimsical, commemorative, and what Adam Pawlus refers to quite appropriately as an iconic cultural touchstone.

Image Bank: Royal Starship Droids (Discover The Force)

By Mike — Sunday, January 29, 2012

Walmart appears to be the retailer of choice for exclusives in 2012 with their "Discover The Force" campaign. Each Hasbro Star Wars merchandise includes a pair of 3D glasses and a 3D image on the packaging to share the concept with the TPM re-rerelease. The Royal Starship Droids aren't entirely new but it is a great Battle Pack that evokes one of my favorite scenes in the film which re-introduces R2-D2 as always saving the day.

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 2, 2011

They were originally slated to hit in August, but Wal-Mart's exclusive pair of mini vehicles hit stores this week. Our pal MeisterShake on Twitter gave me the tip, and I checked two local Wal-Marts and sure enough, they were both stocked with the vehicles at just under $17 each.
