By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I've been engaged in Stemzee cell research! This new furball comes from Kmart's new and possibly in-your-local-store Kmart exclusive Ewok Assault Catapult.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,038: Imperial Officer (Death Star Scanning Crew)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 18, 2013

Let's put a stake through the heart of this week with the Imperial Officer (Death Star Scanning Crew), which finishes up our look at Kmart's new Scanning exclusives.  Next week: Ewoks.  But for now, check out this black-suited villain with fleshy gloves and a swell hat.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,037: Imperial Technician (Death Star Scanning Crew)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 17, 2013

OK, so today we're looking at the new-for-2013 Imperial Technician (Death Star Scanning Crew).  It looks a lot like the 2009 figure, with some deco changes - and since it's a trooper, a slight difference is enough for me to qualify this as a new figure worth your while.  I am easy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,036: Imperial Technician (Imperial Scanning Crew)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 16, 2013

There are two of them! Today it's the Imperial Technician (Imperial Scanning Crew), or to the layman, "this is the one with the new head and missing parts."  You'll want this one - he's loaded with new gear and a head that's a tad too small.

Video Review: Emperor's Royal Guard Star Wars The Vintage Collection Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Hey kids, it's the Emperor's Royal Guard!  The new Vintage version is a pretty slick figure with all of the bells and whistles you might expect from a 2012 figure, with one major missing feature.  What is it?  Well, watch the review after the break, true believers!

Video Review: Weequay Star Wars The Vintage Collection Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 2, 2012

OK, so who do we got going on tonight?  Looks like Weequay, a remake of a figure which has been, historically, one of the best.  Kenner did an awesome one in 1983, and another great one in 1997.  The 2012 Vintage Collection release is pretty swell, too.  You'll want to see this one up close... or just watch the video after the jump.

Video Review: Nien Nunb Star Wars The Vintage Collection Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 1, 2012

Let's look at another new Vintage action figure - but be warned, I hear they're starting to sell out and it hasn't even been a week since they hit! Today it's the updated Nien Nunb, which is a new version of the 1983 and 1997 figures, both of which were exceptional in their days and are still quite good. Now he has a blaster based on the boxy 1980s version, plus a 1997-esque rifle and 14 points of articulation. I love it. I assume you will too. Watch the video after the break!

Video Review: Lumat Star Wars The Vintage Collection Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Oh yes, it's Lumat!  More than just a Graak repaint, this figure is a redeco of the new Logray body with some swell new additions.  It's an online exclusive, plus one of the last remakes of unmade 1980s action figures.  Should you care?  I do, this is one of my favorite Ewoks of the year... and we got a bunch in 2012.  Watch the video after the jump!

Video Review: Republic Trooper Star Wars The Vintage Collection Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 30, 2012

It's time to look at the Republic Trooper from Hasbro's Star Wars: The Vintage Collection 2012 Wave 7!  This one comes from the MMO The Old Republic, which you could be playing right now.  But you're not, you're reading this... but why read, when you can watch a short video review?  It's only a minute and change, so check it out after the jump.

Video Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars The Vintage Collection Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 29, 2012

Let's look at Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Wave 7!  He's from the new internet-only wave, which i the last batch of figures on this packging for a little while. The sculpt is great, the articulation is top-notch, and the figure is effectively a really slick "realistic" interpretation of the 2008 animated figure... but with more articulation.  Watch the full review, after the jump!  

Video Review: Ahsoka Tano Star Wars The Vintage Collection Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 28, 2012

So how about another video review?  2012 Wave 7, the online exclusive batch of action figures, has started shipping and if you preordered them you probably already have them.  Today we're going to do a video review of Ahsoka, a realistic interpretation of the character in her season 3 costume.  It's pretty good.  I think you'll like it, so watch it after the jump.  If you don't, we know where you work, and we'll find you.

Kmart Getting Vintage Return of the Jedi AT-ST

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Sandtroopers.com has two new stock images of an upcoming Kmart exclusive Vintage-boxed AT-ST. The unpackaged photo is horribly and hysterically posed, and the deco appears to be different from previous releases.
