Wedge Antilles Will Fly Soon

By Adam May — Thursday, August 12, 2010

Here's a quick update from the Hasbro booth. Beleaguered Rebel fly-boy Wedge Antilles will be coming out on a Return of the Jedi cardback (#26) in a future wave. He will keep the number that he would have in the current collection despite shipping later on. As was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con, the Wedge Antilles figure is being delayed to improve the sculpt.

Wedge Antilles has been released time-and time again improving little by little (from the Power of the Force 2 "buff era", as a kitbashed exclusive for New Force Comics during the Original Trilogy Collection, and at least 9,000 other attempts. This time out for the vaunted Vintage Collection, the crew at Hasbro hopes (fingers crossed) to definitively nail the sculpt. (We wish them lots of luck.)

Hasbro Update: Not Much New

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 12, 2010

Hey everybody!  I'm in the bowels of the convention center snapping photos and doing research, and I have good news-- sort of.  There isn't much new on display, other than the first "official" look at the Slave I set coming to Toys "R" Us.  Hasbro's booth is giving away a Galactic Heroes Luke Skywalker X-Wing Pilot and a foil edition Obi-Wan Kenobi cardback.  I'll have more for you later, but so far, there's not much new here!

 

Figure of the Day: Day 1,347

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 12, 2010

On sale now-- I just saw the line, so I can confirm this-- is Zuckuss, or 4-LOM in Kenner colors.  I love this figure-- the paint job is delightfully retro and the gag naming is delightful.  You do need it.  Read on!

By Mike — Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Our trusty hunter, Mickey Gunslinger, finds the new TRU Legacy of the Darkside 2 packs in Chandler, AZ, except for the Grievous set, which looks to be the popular one based on the re-release of the pre-Cyborg Grievous. The other two sets include Anakin/Vader and Boba Fett. Pricepoint is $17.99 each. Happy hunting and please report those finds!

What a difference a year makes!  In 2009, this was one of the hottest topics and most-debated issues, because Captain Typho was really hard to get.  Now?  Well, you're probably more concerned with Celebration V than how amazing this figure is, complete with crazy gear and amazing detail.  Show some respect-- read on!

This Is It! THE Must-Have Exclusive at Celebration V

By Adam May — Tuesday, August 10, 2010

So here's the thing, we're literally HOURS (I'm counting them) from Celebration V in Orlando, FL. and friends keep asking me what is the must-have Celebration V exclusive, and, while I'd LOVE a Wampa Rug/Tauntaun Sleeping Bag — which I'd have to use if I brought them home (I'd take pictures of my exile) I know in my bones that the 4-LOM/Zuckuss Retro-Vintage Mix-Up Combo by Hasbro is the one thing I cannot live without.

Figure of the Day: Day 1,345

You may be able to find this Tall Jedi Padawan if you go to Florida this week!  The Star Tours exclusive was reportedly not a huge hit, so some might be around in a Disney park near... well, someone.  Is he worth grabbing?  Read on!

The Imperial AT-AT (2010) — DisPLAY With Your Toys

By Adam May — Monday, August 9, 2010

Since not all of our Imperial AT-AT Walkers were asked to take part in the 11:38 "sneak attack" series, we were heading in another direction. This is the first of a series of photo montages of the new Imperial AT-AT "in play". We assume that this part of Blizzard Force is taking on the first wave of Rebel scum (no relation) to make way for Darth Vader's arrival. (Once again, note that the all-new Imperial AT-AT comes with ONE (1) AT-AT Driver and ONE (1) Speederbike.) Some of the products shown are not currently available at retail, but we hope they're in your collection anyway.

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 9, 2010

Say hi to Clone Trooper Jek!  Today's Figure of the Day debuted as an exclusive but eventually had an individually carded rerelease-- which was slightly harder to get.  Should you have picked up this figure from The Clone Wars when you had the chance?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,343

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 6, 2010

Hey kids, it's the first-ever Wedge Antilles action figure!  He has 6 joints, a Hoth pilot outfit, and basically is worth getting only if you're a card-carrying member of the Cult of Wedge.  But should you read on anyway?  Yes.

NiubNiub's Celebration V Workshop -1 Week

By Adam May — Thursday, August 5, 2010

With one week to go, NiubNiub's Universe is preparing for the Battle of Hoth, and here's a flashback to 2005's monster-sized diorama to get you ready. Don't forget, you can still donate Battle of Hoth toys (Rebellion or Imperials) for all the cool kids to display with, and then take home (along with the diorama pieces they've built). It will be a lot of fun (as always).

Figure of the Day: Day 1,341

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 4, 2010

The new Vintage Collection figures should be pretty much everywhere this week, we even saw some at lunch today.  As such, it's time to decide if figures like this new Han Solo are worth your while. He's new, but is he cool?  (Being he's from Hoth, after all?)  Read on!
