Review: Special Action Figure Set - Villain Set

By Mike — Saturday, July 7, 2012

The Target exclusive Vintage Collection Special Action Figure Sets make a return this summer with their gloriously recreated Kenner packaging. And while previous sets were mostly style over substance, the latest two include all new figures which ups the desirability and open them factor. This second Villain Set includes an all new nicely sculpted and detailed Snaggletooth that you'll definitely want to add to your collection of boozin alien barflies.

Thanks to some timely reporting by Jedi Temple Archives, we were able to score the new Target exclusive Vintage Collection 3 Packs featuring a Villain Set with a Tusken Raider, Boba Fett, and Snaggletooth and a Droid Set packed with R5-D4, Death Star Droid, and an all new Power Droid

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,843

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 6, 2012

One of the earlier examples of "just different enough to make you mad," this Han Solo came with a fairly pricey PC game and was similar to a "Gunner Station" version of the figure.  Read on!

Image Bank: CW14 Aayla Secura

By Mike — Thursday, July 5, 2012

The galaxy's most exquisite navel gets a re-release of her Clone Wars action figure after being short circulated in 2009. Aayla Secura comes with a jetpack, lightsaber, and 14 wonderful points of articulation. Check out all her photos in our latest Image Bank update!

Just over 10 years ago we were hugely surprised by Jorg Sacul, the X-Wing Fighter Pilot with George Lucas' head and the first-ever Celebration exclusive figure.  Is it still super-cool?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,841

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 4, 2012

You may (or may have not) seen this new 2012 Queen Amidala at retail, but she's pretty neat.  The sculpt is good, the deco could be a smidgen better, and overall it's a big improvement over 1999.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,840

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 3, 2012

With quasi-Fett-inspired armor and a flip-up helmet Super Grover would love, I generally like the Mandalorian Police Officer. His articulation may be lacking, but it's cool!  Read on!

Review: CW18 Clone Commander Fox

By Mike — Saturday, June 30, 2012

The commander of the elite Senate Guard transitions into Phase II armor and penalized with less leg articulation, but Commander Fox looks absolutely smashing in his Target employee colorway. And while this figure could easily be that retailer's exclusive, he's available in general circulation as the 18th Clone Wars assortment figure for 2012. That is if you can find him.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,838

Oh, what a Cutup this Clone Cadet is!  Cadet #4 is here, and we're still missing a few other ones.  Is this figure worth getting? I think so.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,837

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 28, 2012

She was spared two different death scenes only to wind up in sexy rags in The Force Unleashed! This hard-to-find Shaak Ti sports a lightsaber and not much of a costume.  Is it worth getting? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,836

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 27, 2012

It's the Rodian Jedi from Target!  This cool figure reuses Luke parts in a fun way that results in a big-headed alien with a laser sword.  You'll want this one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,835

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 26, 2012

If you collected the Jedi High Council sets, you'll end up with some figures like Anakin Skywalker that, by now, you may own 5 times over.  He's just a little different and has no accessories.  Should you care? Read on!

Review: CW12 Obi-Wan Kenobi

By Mike — Monday, June 25, 2012

The brave,noble, chin pondering Jedi Knight gets an update in 2012 that is an overall improvement in terms of sculpt, but loses some articulation in the process. Hasbro must not have been entirely happy with the version from 2011 and decided to issue a new, sterner looking, head sculpt a year later. Obi-Wan even comes with a climbing pack for some play value.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,834

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 25, 2012

There are figures you must own in your collection, but Passel Argente is not one of them.  It's a perfectly good figure with limited articulation, but it's not like he was a major character.  Is greenie  worth it? Read on!
