Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,860

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 31, 2012

It's Clone Trooper Gus, a figure from a pretty great exclusive gift set which Targets often kept around until recently. If you leave the helmet on, it's a great white clone.  Is it worth it? Read on!

Review: VC111 Princess Leia (Bespin Outfit)

By Mike — Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Leia Organa in her glamorous Bespin gown has always been one of the princess' more ornate outfits in the saga. Her standard white color pallet was starkly disrupted during the Cloud City sequence and it was a great change of pace from a costuming standpoint. The figure renditions over the years have attempted to recreate the outer gown, from the vinyl cape of the classic vintage Kenner version to the more woven POTF2 Princess Collection that would be more appropriate as window dressing. For the 2012 Vintage Collection, you get two variant cardbacks with one paying homage to a "Lost Line" look to go with a nicely sculpted and articulated figure. But did Hasbro get the gown right?

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 25, 2012

This General Grievous is one of Hasbro's better releases of the character.  He's not clunky, his shoulders don't fall apart, and the cape is pretty nice.  Where can you find him?  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 16, 2012
