Oh, here's a neat one. Mostly neat due to the accessory, as the figure mold is showing its age, this Star Tours Darth Vader just hit a month and change back, reusing the 2005 "500th" Vader mold with a nifty new floating platform.
Hasbro sent us another exciting batch with a mix of new images of things we've seen and new stuff. The newest of the new is the Target Exclusive Star Wars The Search for Luke Skywalker set, which sports a retooled vintage Hoth Han Solo (hood not up, dagnabbit) alongside a newly-tooled Tauntaun and a Hoth Rebel Trooper. All this and Vintage Ponda Baba on card, plus more, after the break. CLICK IT.
Hasbro sent us a whole mess of pictures today, so let's get started with the sharing. The Comic-Con Exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Action Figure Boxed Set is (so far) the only 2011 exclusive for this brand, and it sports mostly repacks. Of note, a variant Rebel Commando is introduced, and exclusive-to-this-set mini reackaged versions of Salacious Crumb and a Mouse Droid are included. More pics? After the break, of course!
It took a year and change, but Hasbro put out this original Gungan Warrior after the big shake-up that followed the Episode I line being changed to Power of the Jedi. Despite having only 6 joints, he's pretty good-- and has great detail on his skin, too! Read on!
It's not a major character, or a very popular one-- but it's a nice figure! The Neimoidian Warrior has a huge gun and an action feature, plus a removable helmet and good articulation. Should you buy a few? Maybe! Read on!
It's Barriss Offee! The Jedi hasn't received a new figure in years, but now we got two of her in a few months. How about that! This animated version is pretty slick, plus includes Geonosian Brain Worms. Should you track her down, now that she's showing up in stores? Read on!
After being revealed in the new issue of Previews (shipping to homes, offices, and comic shops now) Rebelscum found a packaged image of the new Y-Wing Scout Bomber, a new mini-rig type of vehicle seemingly very much inspired by the 1980s toys of Kenner.
News! While Hasbro has yet to reveal images of this to the press or their retail partners, the Jedi Temple Archives have found the AV-7 Mobile Cannon Vehicle and have in- and out-of-the-box images! Wow! Go check it out.
The summer kicks off with a new print ad from Hasbro featuring the bounty hunter, Zam Wessel, and the Attack of the Clones wave in their retro vintage carded glory. Enjoy!
While there's no picture or exact description of what it is just yet, our sponsor Entertainment Earth has listed a Mandalorian Gunship as a part of the Starfighter vehicle assortment. More as we have it, but you can go look at the listing now if you'd like. If ever there was a time to stock up on generic Mando troopers, this might be it.
The rumors are true! Today Toys"R"Us emailed little ol' us pics and info on a new Republic Commando Delta Squad Action Figure set which will be sold at Comic-Con in San Diego, via Toys"R"Us, at the Entertainment Earth booth #2343. And yes, there are new molds in here. More pics after the jump.
When first revealed to the public in 1999, another, better R2-D2 was shown around the same time. As such, this one didn't get as much heat, especially after we all found out his scene was deleted-- the booster rockets took on a new form in the sequels. Ah well. But is it neat? Read on!
One of the most likable critters from Jabba's Palace is the cackling puppet Salacious Crumb. He's a jerk. What's not to love? The 2010 release was a repaint of the 2007 release, hardly essential were it not for the fact it came with a new Jabba and Oola. So how is he different? Read on!
It's no secret, I love Ewoks. I think the fact that a lot of collectors hate them makes me like them even more. I was particularly jazzed to get the 2009 update of Paploo which, while I don't love as much as the 1984 original, I still like bunches. Is he worth your while? Read on!
