Image Bank: VC01 Dengar

By Mike — Monday, August 23, 2010

VC01 Dengar would never win a beauty contest, but his latest incarnation in plastic is primo. A striking head sculpt with wicked detail in the paint app, the bounty hunter is in  a worthy place first in line for the new Vintage Collection figures.

By Mike — Monday, August 23, 2010

Figure of the Day: Day 1,354

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 23, 2010

What's big, grey, and has a giant gun for a hand?  That's right, the Heavy Assault Super Battle Droid.  This retooled version of the 2008 berserker now has a useful built-in weapon and a slightly changed deco-- is it worth it?  Read on!

Image Bank: Jodo Kast (K-Mart)

By Mike — Sunday, August 22, 2010

"Ain't Nothing like the real thing, Baby" is a tune that Jodo Kast should have listened to when taking on the reputation and identity of one Boba Fett. This K-Mart exclusive improves upon the 2008 version with a removable helmet and new headsculpt as well as an updated paint app.

Figure of the Day: Day 1,353

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 20, 2010

Hasbro isn't shy about reusing its 2001 Rebel Trooper mold. This body has had no fewer than 5 heads to date and Hasbro seems to waffle on the prospects of redoing what was once a state-of-the-art release.  Should you pick up this, yet another version of the famous trooper? Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,352

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 19, 2010

If you like your robots retro, the Rocket Battle Droid is a good candidate.  Released in a couple of ways so far, this figure has a big can opener, a rocket pack, and a wacky helmet thing on his head.  How can you go wrong?  You can't!  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,351

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 18, 2010

A former Fan's Choice candidate, and also a figure Hasbro once said couldn't ever be done with a removable helmet, this Rebel Trooper in Scout Trooper Disguise (or Nik Sant, maybe) is pretty swell. Part of a great Battle Pack, he's most likely long gone from your stores-- but should you get him if you find one somehow?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,350

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Hey kids, it's Roth-Del Masona, or another Jedi for you to buy!  This figure was (and still is) available at Target as an exclusive and was forged from the mighty form of an existing Mace Windu body.  Should you get one?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,349

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 16, 2010

Today let's look at Clone Captain Rex, covered in eel blood!  Figure of the Day has never been so gross.  Is this figure worth picking up just because he's covered in blue goo?  Read on!

Warwick Davis With Vintage Collection Wicket @ Hasbro Pavilion

By Adam May — Monday, August 16, 2010

Warwick Davis, the actor inside the furry suit of everyone's favorite Ewok, Wicket, stopped by the Hasbro pavilion to check out the new Wicket figure (this time sporting the non-animated brown hood) and pose for photos with fans and even Hasbro/Star Wars team members. (Most importantly, he was able get the accurate brown hood placed on the little furball figure.) Check it out, and the big smile says it all.
