Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,775

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 3, 2012

The third time is the charm!  We got R2-B1 before in 2000 and 2007, but this is the one you'll want. This "newly" released hard-to-find Walmart exclusive started hitting big in the last week, so did you get yours? And should you?  Read on!

Image Bank: VC95 Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit)

By Mike — Monday, April 2, 2012

I've been waiting for this Luke Hoth to ride the awesome Target Vintage Tauntaun. In many ways, he looks great, super articulated, and a decent head likeness. It's the opening scene from The Empire Strikes Back. How can you get any more iconic than that?

Image Bank: VC96 Darth Malgus

By Mike — Monday, April 2, 2012

Darth Malgus is the bawz. He's like a Sebastian Shaw Anakin/Vader on super soldier serum. The antagonist of The Old Republic MMO is plasticized in all his Sith glory for The Vintage Collection and we've just added him to our Image Bank!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,774

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 2, 2012

It's Clone Trooper Kix, one of very few Clone medics in the entire line. There are hundreds of these things, but doctors?  Like one.  What are they, disposable?  Oh yeah, right. Hm. Anyway, go check him out!

Check out Clone Commander Cody in his Phase II armor.  It's good-- new helmet, new sculpt, and a pain-in-the-neck backpack peg await you on this newish figure. Go get one, won't you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,772

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 29, 2012

It's Qui-Gon Jinn with Kenner-esque shoulder and hip joints, the best head sculpt ever, and a light-up lightsaber.  How oddly delightful!  Should you get one?  I think so.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,771

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 28, 2012

From a semi-recent Battle Pack, Colonel Dyer is, for all intents and purposes, our best update of the Kenner Imperial Officer figure. Black uniform, gloves, and a blaster... he's our guy!  So is the set worth your while? (Yes.) Read on!

Carded Tarkin, Nikto, Marek, Vizla

By Mike — Wednesday, March 28, 2012

New carded photos of the upcoming Grand Moff Tarkin, Galen Marek, Shae Vizla, and Nikto have been posted by Sandtroopers.com! That Kenner style Tarkin Star Wars card is simply sublime!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,770

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 27, 2012

This Battle Droid is the first release of the new 2012 Movie Heroes line-- the second is red.  So this is just different to make you mad, particularly because it's from a cheap 2-pack mold at $9.  So should you get it? No, but read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,769

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 26, 2012

This Jedi Padawan is a sort of nameless extra from a recent Star Tours set.  Not specifically from the movies or ride, he looks like he's based on an actual person but nobody really knows who it is.  Do you?  I don't.  Anyway, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,768

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 23, 2012

Love orange?  Have another Clone Trooper.  This one came in a Battle Pack and is slightly different from other almost identical figures.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,767

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 22, 2012

This Imperial EVO Trooper was one of many different versions released by Hasbro since 2008.  Do you want a little dirt? You can get that. This is one of the cleaner versions and came out last year-- it's also my favorite, so read on!

Image Bank: MH16 Obi-Wan Kenobi

By Mike — Wednesday, March 21, 2012

The MH16 Obi-Wan Kenobi comes with a cool Light-Up Lightsaber feature and an all new sculpt.There are two schools of thought when it comes to the latest wave of Movie Heroes. The ultra detailed, super articulated crowd have been at the forefront in recent years, especially with the premium stylings  of The Vintage Collection. But a more traditional approach has emerged with Movie Heroes where the articulation is limited and action features have returned to attract a younger audience. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,766

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 21, 2012

As one of the notorious pegwarmers of 1999 (and beyond), it was surprising that Hasbro gave Ric Olie another go. The first one was pretty good, but is this one better?  Read on!
