Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,754

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 5, 2012

Another IG-86? The time fo The Clone Wars was lousy with them, and each figure is just a little different.  If you love droids, maybe you'll want this Vulture's Claw version.  Read on!

Image Bank: MH17 Queen Amidala

By Mike — Sunday, March 4, 2012

The second wave of Movie Heroes has less re-issue more new sculpt with action feature. More focused on play than display, they're still very displayable unlike the old action feature laden figures of old. A new iteration of Queen Amidala in Theed Palace battle outfit is most welcomed since we haven't had a version since 1999 and it badly needed an updated. How does she measure up?

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.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,753

Another Rebel Trooper from the opening of the saga!  It's not exactly amazing, but it's notable if you need a bunch of slightly-different guys to fill a scene out. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,752

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 1, 2012

The 2005 version was excellent, but Hasbro reinvented the AT-RT Driver last year and it's pretty good.  Just like the old one.  Is it worth shelling out for another, similar figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,751

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Check out Mace Windu, a retooled Vintage figure from early last year.  It's different, but is it different enough? That's why we're here.  Read on!

2012 Hasbro Toy Fair Presentation Online

By Mike — Monday, February 27, 2012

We have to get our information somewhere, and if it can't be from Hasbro, why not the Germans? After Hasbro decided not to release the Toy Fair 2012 Powerpoint Presentation to collector media last month for some odd reason, we finally get to see it courtesy of Figuren.com of Germany.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,749

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 27, 2012

OK, so we just posted a gallery-- but don't you want to read more about the Mon Calamari Rebel Pilot?  If you do, today's Figure of the Day is for you! The good news: he can sit in some A-Wings. The bad? Not well. Read on!

Image Bank: VC91 Rebel Pilot (Mon Calamari)

By Mike — Sunday, February 26, 2012

We normally like our Calamari lightly breaded, sauteed in garlic butter, with spicy cherry peppers, then pan fried to a golden crisp. But this new Mon Calamari A-Wing Pilot from the ROTJ Blu-Ray Deleted Scene is the business.

Image Bank: VC90 Colonel Cracken (Millennium Falcon Crew)

By Mike — Sunday, February 26, 2012

We finally have the Cracken released, and he's a mix of old and new. The head and top torso are new while the bottom legs are from 2006's Rebel Trooper (SAGA046).  The actual figure doesn't look anything like the guy on the cardback, who actually bears a close resemblance to one of the kiosk folks at my local mall, stubble and all.

Image Bank: VC89 Lando Calrissian (Sandstorm Outfit)

By Mike — Friday, February 24, 2012

Hello, what have we here? When it comes to Lando figures, the Skiff Guard outfit is probably the most popular, and Hasbro decided to add a chock full of accessories, including a Skiff Guard helmet and Force Pike, to elevate the new Deleted Scene figure from good to extraordinarily good. You can multi-task Lando from Skiff to Sandstorm by swapping out his hood and poncho.
