Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,793

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, April 27, 2012

A few years ago, Hasbro brought over Tomy's RC droids!  Target got them as exclusives, and R5-D4 looks pretty good.  Should you track him down?  Read on!

It's not R2-A6, it's R2-N3!  This droid is green, new, and just different enough to make you mad, or happy, or both.  I like it, as I can't get enough of astromechsRead on!

Image Bank: CW11 Republic Commando Boss

By Mike — Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Expanded Canon meets Expanded Universe as the fan favorite Republic Commando Boss gets the Clone Wars treatment in 2012 with  good sculpt, but awfully limited leg articulation. He comes with his standard commando weaponry, a zip line, and a cool storage pack to harness his hand blasters.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,791

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 25, 2012

The main selling point of this Anakin Skywalker figure is probably his dirty mug, follwed by the helmet.  Sadly, it doesn't really fit in the matching Pod Racer, nor is it a new mold-- it's a 2000-era figure.  Is it worth getting as part of a big set?  R

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,790

While a long-requested figure, Ben Quadinaros had lost Fan's Choice voting more than once, and this figure actually looks significantly meaner than the renderings from the movie.  Is this crueller take on the kite with arms worth buying? Read on!

The Two Faces Of Dr. E

By Mike — Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Variation alert! After first making note about it in our Facebook page, we are able to confirm after a few more reports have surfaced that there is indeed a paint variation with Dr. Evazan's scar.

 

Image Bank: CW17 Commander Wolffe

By Mike — Tuesday, April 24, 2012

The leader of the Wolfpack upgrades his armor but loses mobility for his second figure release. There are a few things so right about this figure and a lot that could have been done better. Visually, he looks stunning, but if you can get by with 8 points of articulation on a figure that's meant to be posed dynamically or keep your figures carded, then you'll probably be O.K. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,789

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 23, 2012

New from The Clone Wars is the anticipated SCUBA Gear Ahsoka Tano, another in a long chain of hard-to-get figures of this character.  She looks great! But the articulation, not so great.   Read on!

Image Bank: VC60 Clone Trooper (501st Legion)

By Mike — Saturday, April 21, 2012

The most prominent and notorious Clone Trooper unit  gets an update in plastic in the new and improved 2011 body. He's super-articulated, nicely-decoed and you can generalize this as a repaint of the Movie Heroes Class I BARC Speeder with Clone Trooper and you would be correct. But then there's a slight issue with the helmet.

Image Bank: VC45 Clone Trooper (Phase I)

By Mike — Saturday, April 21, 2012

Plain vanilla ice cream is sometimes all you need to take care of that sweet tooth. It's uncomplicated yet classically flavorful. In the case of the VC45 Phase I Clone Trooper, Hasbro makes plain white even more intriguing by drafting an all new, spectacular sculpt that's aesthetically and proportionally pleasing, proving that super articulation is not the end all, be all of vanilla ice cream or Clone Troopers.

This Hasbro print ad for The Vintage Collection from August 2011 stars Cantina Patron and mercenary Bom Vimdin. Check it out in our Image Bank!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,788

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, April 20, 2012

So this is the new Darth Vader for 2012, which is actually a figure from 2002 with fewer accessories at twice the price.  Oh, and they took out the magnets.  He looks good, though, so is he worth the nine bucks? Read on!

Image Bank: VC58 Aayla Secura

By Mike — Friday, April 20, 2012

Despite her brief appearances in the films,  Aayla Secura has a good following among the fan base.  As far as her action figure, I didn't really give much thought to an upgrade even with the less than spectacular efforts in 2003 and 2005.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,787

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 19, 2012

Another day, another Mace Windu.  This one has a distinctive hoodless robe, and that's the main selling point here.  Read on!
