By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 7, 2011

Screw naming conventions!  The astromech droid CB-3D looks like several other astromech droids... but he's slightly different.  Is he worth tracking down?  He is if you want a Dark Trooper!  Read on!

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.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,581

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 6, 2011

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,580

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 5, 2011

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!

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 1, 2011

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.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,578

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 1, 2011

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,577

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 30, 2011

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,576

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 29, 2011

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,575

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 28, 2011

It's the Evo Trooper, repainted and camo'd up for 2010!  This figure was a Toys R Us exclusive and now... well, maybe you got one.  If not, it's probably not there any more.  Is this repaint worth it?  Read on!
