The first figure in an Expanded Universe Vintage card is quite possibly the best of 2011. Hasbro does pretty much everything you could possibly want for ARC-77, based on the more popular episodes of the Tartakovsky micro-series. He's got interchangeable Phase I and II armor, a unique headsculpt (with a faux hawk and soul patch nonetheless!), and even comes with an instruction insert to show you how to attach both holsters.
This TIE Pilot figure was first released in the Evolutions set from 2008 and has been re-issued several times since. For carded collectors, this means collecting both the Revenge and Return variants and you gotta appreciate the retro Kenner beauty of both.
Team Galactic Hunter wishes you and yours a Happy, Safe, and Prosperous New Year! We're looking forward to all the new stuff coming up as the Star Wars franchise continues to grow and evolve with The Clone Wars series and 3D re-releases. Look for our Toy Fair coverage in February as Hasbro further unveils what they have planned in 2012 and beyond. Will The Vintage Collection continue? What's the next marquee vehicle?
A holdover from 2010, Wedge trickled in limited quantities over the summer and demanded a higher premium before Hasbro made him a little more readily available in later assortments in the fall and promises to re-issue him again in 2012. Hasbro utilizes X-wing Luke's body from 2006 along with that figure's hole for a lightsaber hilt. It's a decent head likeness of Red 2 that deserves a spot in your collection...if you can find him.
Oh Todo 360. We first heard about him from an early figure listing which didn't come to include him-- but we got him later, and he's pretty cool. (Only his head moves, though.) Should you bring the Seth Green robot home? Read on!
First previewed at New York Comic-Con, Hasbro launches their new micro sized Fighter Pods figurine page. With over 100 Fighter Pods figures from all six Star Wars films and The Clone Wars animated series, you can collect an entire galaxy of your favorite characters!
It says "Hasbro" on the box, but this Star Tours Yoda is more of an abomination. It's ugly, and there are three variations of it involving lightsaber and skin coloring. Should you get it? (No.) Read on!
Tis the season for randomly marked-down products! Walmart has marked down their Ultimate Gift Sets for Star Wars as well as Transformers and Beyblade, but prices vary by store-- the $30 sets were as little as $15 in my neighborhood, which is a steal given you get 5 figures in the set.
It's R2-D2, the way you always wanted him... as a reindeer. This 2002 exclusive was in short supply, but thanks to the collective short attention span of modern collectors he's cheap again! Rejoice, and read on!
This 2009 Han Solo gave us the figure with a stormtrooper belt, helmet, and armor for some reason. Well, it's still a decent figure, but getting his head right seems to be dang near impossible. Read on!
There are two Silver R2-D2 figures. One was a vac-metal sold carded based on the 2000 Power of the Jedi figure mold. The second was a Saga Collection figure in a UK-only boxed set with a matte finishe, based on the Vintage 2004 mold. The set was pretty tough to get in the USA... but now you don't need to get it.
He's green now! The second attempt on R2-X2 seems to be the "official" one thanks to some bunghole suggesting the 2006 release be black. Ah well. Whose fault do you think that was? I sure don't know. Anyway, read on!
