Reader Brad wrote in to inform us that his local Five Below store - unknown and unavailable to many of us in these United States - continues to get The Vintage Collection figures we all crave like Darth Malgus for five dollars... or below. Thanks for writing in, Brad, and curse all of you who have access to this fantastic sounding store!
Amazon has been marking down - and up - and down - a lot of toys over the last few days. Right now, the Vintage Collection Slave I at $35 and Vintage Collection TIE Interceptor at $25 are about as low as we've ever seen them. Droid Factory figures are back up to $35 - cheaper, but not as low as the $15 last week.
Numerous action figures are down to about $3-$5, and not just Star Wars - Batman 1966, Star Trek Kre-O, DC and other Mattel Batman figures, and Transformers are getting cut too. Click through to see more.
Lots of new toys have been showing up in Galactic Hunter HQ! We're working on more to share, but some highlights include new Saga Legends and Mission Series 2-packs from Hasbro! Some people are also getting Super 7 x Funko Alien ReAction Figures too, and some people are also quite excited to be looking at them right now. Want some impressions of the new Star Wars guys? Sure you do. Read on!
In what I can only assume is to make early adopters who paid $59.99 not a month and change ago feel as foolish as possible, Amazon cut the price on the Star Wars Legacy Collection Droid Factory Action Figure 6-Pack to a mind-blowing-but-why-stop-now $23.99. Black Series figures ($11.99 Greedo) and other items also received deep cuts, and since we're going to go ahead and say this qualifies as news, you'll see more of them after the jump.
Amazon's Cyber Week Lightning Deal Toy Page has two Lightning Deals of interest today. One, the Slave I, will be on sale at 10:00 AM PST. The TIE Interceptor will be on sale at 1:00 PM PST. Click here to see the deal page, and scroll over the Lightning Deals box to see these and other items.
Update #1: Slave I live now. Click here and add to cart. It's
Ad: While you probably don't need more Black Series 6-Inch Sandtrooper Action FIgures, Amazon has them for
$11.24 $10.12 - the best price I've seen yet. The armor is largely removable and I assume the dirt comes off, so customizers/troop builders/clearance finders - this is the time to order some Sandtroopers!
I can tell you're excited - we're going to round out Toys R Us' latest exclusives (and take a break) with Clone Captain Deviss, a redeco of a figure that was a redeco of another figure. He has a name now! How about that? Should you care? Read on!
Available at a Toys R Us near you right now, Selig Kenjenn (not Zelig, I don't think) is shown being at the Battle of Geonosis. Except he wasn't there - the character is based on a piece of art depicting Holocron-keeper Leland Chee as a Jedi, which had TIE Fighters in the background. As such, it's less an essential movie collectible than it is a bizarrely neat trivia question for people like you and me who live and breathe this stuff. Read on!
Ad: Nobody's waiting for Black Friday! Amazon posted a Up to 50% Off Select Star Wars Figures page. Click here to see everything, including several $9.99 Black Series 6-inch figures, $5.18 3 3/4-inch figures, and even some cheap Mission Series and Vintage stuff! Check it out. I took the liberty of sorting out some of the deals by type after the break.
While she looks a little more like Han & Leia's kid than the actress in the movie, Khaat Qiyn is largely pretty neat. Sure, she has a giant mitt, but Que-Mars' other hand had to go somewhere. Want to know more? Read on!
If you have been waiting on the Star Wars Legacy Collection Droid Factory Action Figure 6-Pack, the online seller dropped the price to $39.99! (Unfortunately, price adjustments can only be made within a week of delivery.) What's more, Star Wars The Black Series Mara Jade Action Figure is in stock too! If you're in the market for a second version of these to keep carded, this may be the time! Click through for pricing and availability.
While it's not uncommon for a figure to have a minor error or two, Que-Mars Redath received two of them - and they're pretty interesting ones, at that. This isn't the first Weequay Jedi, nor do we anticipate it to be the last. It is, however, the first figure in the last set we're going to be looking at this week so go ahead and read on!
Check out the movie version of TC-70, Jabba's protocol droid from The Clone Wars movie. It's pretty nice - it's also the build-a-droid from Amazon's exclusive Legacy 6-pack. Should you get it? Read on!
I know what you're thinking - didn't you buy a Vintage 212th Battalion Clone Trooper just about two years ago? Yes, but this one is just different enough to make you mad! New damage markings and slightly different orange patterning await you on this exclusive Droid Factory figure which now uses the 2011 Vintage Clone body, which the previous version did not. Read on!
Did you know you needed another Sun Fac? Neither did I. This Amazon-exclusive 2013 release is a redeco of the 2006 pegwarmer original, which would surely have poisoned the pegs. As such, we're all happy to see it online. It has fewer accessories than the original, lacks the eye scar, and has slightly different deco. Is the new release worth it? Read on!
