By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 14, 2010

Oh Denal, we hardly knew ye-- but we do know that ye suit should be coming back on another figure soon!  This Clone Trooper has a unique helmet and a nice rocket pack, but the head is not much to speak of.  Should you check him out?  Read on!

Image Bank: CW31 Shaak Ti

By Mike — Wednesday, October 13, 2010

 This figure is simply stunning, with soft goods that work with the super articulation underneath. We do have concerns about the long term viability of the soft goods skirt as it seems prone to unraveling, but it lays well and complements the figure overall. VC31 Shaak Ti is the latest addition to our Image Bank. Post your thoughts in our comment box!

It's rare to see evolution take place right before your eyes, but you can do that with these Clone Trooper figures.  (OK, not really.)  He can be a pilot or a trooper-- it's all up to you!  Just pick a helmet and presto, new figure.  How many should you buy?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,390

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Hey kids, it's Embo!  He showed up at my place over the weekend (thank you Entertainment Earth), and he's got a nice hat-- and some knives, and an articulated bowcaster.  He's really well done.  Check him out, won't you?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,389

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 11, 2010

Crawling through the mud is good fun for a Clone Trooper but when it isn't posed to do anything else... is it any good?  This limited-articulation figure came in a cheap 3-pack.  Is it worth buying?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,388

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 8, 2010

Hasbro's first attempt at a non-R2-D2 astromech droid form was one of its best.  The then-nameless Astromech Droid later christened R2-R9 had a light-up light (rather than the eyeport, which never lights up) and tons of articulation with no ugly action features to get in the way.  In 1999, it was beautiful-- and it's still

The new Target Hasbro Star Wars exclusives aren't just starting to hit US stores-- reader Chad found not one, not two, but pretty much all of Target's remaining 2010 exclusives at Zeller's in Canada.  So don't be too jealous of us in the USA, Canadians!  Chad writes:

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,386

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Back in 2003 Hasbro unveiled the first-ever Super Articulated Star Wars action figure-- and in 2005, Entertainment Earth had it repainted as an exclusive. 12 alternate decoes were created of the Clone Trooper and this one has some battle damage on it-- it was also never reissued.  Should you track it down?  Read on!

Image Bank: CW24 Jungle Camo ARF Trooper

By Mike — Wednesday, October 6, 2010

A repaint of last year's "clean" release (and this year's re-release), CW24 Jungle Camo ARF Trooper offers nothing new except the cool camouflage paint deco based on his appearance in The Clone Wars theatrical film. And for this, we recommend picking up a couple. Make sure to post your comments!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,385

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 5, 2010

The newly-released "vintage" Darth Sidious is far more awesome than it looks at first glance.  His hood really clings nicely, his sculpting is wonderful, and just look at that face!  Are you making a huge mistake by not running out to the store to buy one right now?  Read on!

SL05 Jango Running Change

By Mike — Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Another running change, and this time it's a good one, for SL05 Jango Fett reported by Jedi Temple Archives via the Australian Mousedroid.com Forums. It appears that the less articulated, pre-posed 2002 sculpt that is available in U.S. stores now may be swapped for the TAC57 sculpt, which would obviously be preferred.
