We will be monitoring [hint — encouraging] comments (for quality control, naturally) for a bit as we pack our bags and go through our checklists leading up to Celebration V in Orlando, FL. Comments can lead to goodies like Hasbro's Star Wars posters from Comic-Con 2010 (and maybe even surplus posters going back a few years); a set (or more once we take stock) of those oh-so frame-worthy backer cards (from Hasbro, naturally); and whatever goodies we stu
Our pal Victoria sent us a picture of a new Saga Legends Obi-Wan Kenobi variation hitting stores now. Both figures share the same SKU, but different tools were employed to make this figure. The first release was a repack of the Attack of the Clones Outlander Club version, sold as part of the dark blue and gold carded "Saga" figures in late 2003. The second release is based on the 2008 Revenge of the Sith figure on the "30th Anniversary" style cards which included display stands. Both are packed with guns, a card, a display
Hey kids, it's the brand-new (as of this week [or last month]) General Grievous! He has swappable heads, arms you can rip off, and even hackable legs. Unfortunately, his plastic is a little soft. Is he worth tracking down? Read on!
A few Target stores are beginning their resets for Back to School and that includes finally putting out some new Star Wars merchandise. The store in Chandler Village, Arizona rolled out their merch with Clone Wars and Saga Legend pricepoints at $6.99 and Vintage at $7.99 (AT-AT was $99.99) Also on the shelves are the new Hoth Assault and Clone Troopers & Droids Battle Packs. Happy Hunting Hunters. Now's the time for the late night runs and burning that gas! Whoohooo!!
The latest wave of new blue card Clone Wars action figures have been found by Mickey Gunslinger at a Walmart in Albuquerque (we guess Mickey must have taken that left turn!) The new figures include CW20 Mace Windu with battle damage Jango helmet, CW22 Battle Droid Commander, and CW24 Jungle Camo ARF Trooper.
Shaking off the post-Comic-Con whiplash/hangover the lads over at Sandtroopers.com slap up one more new piece to blow our socks off. The 2010 TIE Bomber from Hasbro's Vintage Collection has more new features than expected. (Turn a dial at the back to drop missiles?) Who would have ever thought that would happen (and work)? There's also the modern convenience of having an ejecting TIE Pilot.
Your pal and mine David Silva just updated his site Creative Beast with his work on the original sculpt for the just-released Jabba the Hutt! Wow! Check it out, won't you? Be sure to see all his amazing work, including McFarlane Toys figures and dinosaur sculptures!
Another in a series of hastily-written Star Wars toy impressions! This time, Wal-Mart's exclusive Jabba the Hutt! We reveal secrets, and you get to see Oola's shirt off. Read on!
We located one Jabba the Hutt with Oola Action Figure set at Wal-Mart in Phoenix, Arizona this afternoon. It it exclusive to the chain, and for those keeping track it was $34.97. It is worth noting that the pipe and bowl are retooled and do not include Jabba's creature snacks, so you may wish to hold on to the 2004 model's accessories.
Hey kids, it's the Dark Trooper! This awesome figure appears in a more primitive, more stabby incarnation. It's a shared exclusive between Toys "R" Us and online accounts... but that doesn't mean you're likely to see one in your travels. Is he worth putting in some effort to find? Read on!
This is one Star Wars figure a lot of fans missed. Tarados Gon was one of the last figures on the "blue" Legacy Collection packaging, and he came with an HK-47 part. If you missed him, should you fix that mistake? Read on!
Star of stage, screen, and podcasts, Yoda is all things to all Star Wars fans. Heck, he's even a great podcaster. This 2009 Clone Wars action figure is loaded with articulation, but should you add him to your massive pile of Yoda toys? Read on!
The Star Wars Kmart exclusive action figure Jodo Kast is starting to hit Kmarts according to your emails! The prices are said to be $8.49 or $8.99 depending on location. We have not personally found the toy but enough are surfacing for us to say happy hunting!
Hey kids, it's the Gungan Warrior! This one has the best sculpt Hasbro has ever done of the character... but the paint, not so hot. It's a solid item, and if given the chance, should you buy a ton of them? (Yes.) Read on anyway!
