It looks like collectors will be spending a lot of dough this week. Besides the new slew of Target exclusives, Toys R Us is also receiving the latest vehicles which include the Hyena Bomber, AT-AP, AAT, and Swamp Speeder. Mickey Gunslinger sends in his find from Chandler, AZ yesterday. Open up those wallets and Happy Weekend Hunting!
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!
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!
With the recently released Battle Pack, you may think that there would be ample supply of Mandalorian Warriors for everyone. But don't fool yourself. This guy will be hot to move off the pegs. View all the detailed photos in our Image Bank and be sure to post your comments!
The new Target exclusives are now available online at Amazon. These include the Hostage Crisis and Hidden Enemy Battlepacks, the 2010 Edition Geonosis Sets, Senate Guard 2 Pack, and Bounty Hunter 2 Pack. Thanks to curatola01 for the timely heads up!
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?
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!
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
Our sponsor Entertainment Earth posted Wave 4 of The Vintage Collection which showcases a mix of figures from Attack of the Clones as well as previous waves. It's due in January, but what's in it?
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:
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!
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!
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!
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.
