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!
A vast improvement from last year's release, CW23 Kit Fisto is another great figure in the 2010 Clone Wars assortment. Hasbro gives him well articulated legs and ankles this time along with a soft goods skirt so he can easily fit into the cockpit of his new Walmart exclusive Jedi Starfighter. Not surprisingly, Kit has been one of the harder to find at least in this reporter's area. Don't hesitate to pick him up of you see him. Make sure to post your comments!
A wonderfully executed figure with the perfect sculpt and great articulation, CW11 Aurra Sing is the best yet, and if you haven't picked her up, you need to. A brand new super articulated sculpt that is evolutions above her POTJ and Saga iterations, Sing is a pasty yet sexy volatile piece of plastic. If we were to nitpick, an additional dead Jedi lightsaber would have been fantastic. Please post your comments on the bounty hunter!
You can now have your Separatist commander hard-boiled or deep fried. Hasbro retooled the previous TCW versions and gave him additional articulation (especially in the legs), interchangeable battle damage parts, new head sculpt, but alas, less ambidexterity and fire power. CW10 General Grievous may be the best TCW version yet, but if there's one complaint, it's that his shoulder plates do not stay on and we recommend keeping the rubber bands on the hands because they are not sculpted well enough to grip those sabers.
Serve the public trust. Protect the innocent. Uphold the law. Yes, CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer sorta reminds us of this guy. As with most Clone Wars designed action figures, the sculpt is true to the series. While the limited articulation in the legs holds this figure back from a poseability standpoint, the shield/firing missile launcher combo is a nice touch.
VC08 Pre Vizsla is next up in our Image Bank. The leader of the Death Watch comes well equipped with double WESTAR-35 blaster pistols and a darksaber that will lead that newly released Mandalorian Warrior Battle Pack quite nicely. Make sure to post your comments!
We have updated our Image Bank with Vintage Collection Foil Cards (Ultimate Galactic Hunt) for your viewing pleasure.One more foil to update, and that's Darth Sidious, who has proven to be the most elusive for this hunter so far. Enjoy!
VC11 Cloud Car Pilot catches us up in our Vintage Collection Image Bank. This version of the pilot shares the same design schematic as the vintage version. What it doesn't share is the groovy stache so hip in Disco era Cloud City fashion. We're hoping for a running change head variant for a little more diversity in our Bespin aerial security detail.
Now available in Toys R Us stores and online, the TRU exclusive Nikto Guard Puko Naga has been added to our Image Bank. A great figure overall, it does receive a negative point for lack of knee and ankle articulation. As an army or squad builder and at a premium of $10.99, we couldn't ask for anything less.
Share your thoughts and post your comments on this new exclusive!
It's back to the future for VC10 4-LOM, where you play a slight premium for the retro vintage card and nothing else, like the coin from the 2007 TAC release. He's today's addition in our Image Bank. Please post your comments!
The Y-Wing Pilot from the Battle of Malastare is next up on our Image Bank. CW28 Clone Pilot Goji is a nice nod to "Gojira" or Godzilla to you Westerners. His helmet even bears the markings of the Japanese super lizard.
The all new CW26 Flamethrower Clone Trooper may not be what J. Geils had in mind, but who's to argue? Along with two types of flame accessories, you get a stand and die to play your Galactic Battle Game. Don't forget to send in your POP's for the Sergeant Bric mailaway! And certainly don't forget to post your comments on the latest iteration of the Clone Trooper.
The Cerean Jedi Master finally gets his chance in Clone Wars style plastic and he ain't bad at all. CW25 Ki-Adi-Mundi is the latest Image Bank update and you can find him in stores now, specifically Toys R Us.
For 5 POP's and $7 bucks, you can get a small piece of your childhood back. Well, for a lot of us. VCP03 Rocket Firing Boba Fett has a special place in Star Wars collecting history and kudos to Hasbro for making this mailaway happen. The first wave is shipping now, so be nice to your mailman lest he get bent out of shape.
For VC09 Boba Fett, Hasbro updates last year's BD36 (which in turn was an update of the Evolutions Fett), gives it a more authentic paint refresh, and tweaked the helmet to make it a little more movie accurate. We can nitpick about wrist articulation and giving him a Jeremy Bulloch as Chuck Norris head, but this figure coupled with the awesome vintage packaging needs to be on your hunt list if you can find one. It really is the best Fett yet. Post your comments and let us know what you think!
