First Look: Kmart Vintage Return of the Jedi The Vintage Collection B-Wing Fighter

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, July 16, 2011

Pretend to be excited! Hasbro will likely be unveiling the B-Wing Fighter, a just-released Kmart exclusive in The Vintage Collection at Comic-Con this week. I expect lots of applause from people in the audience who weren't paying attention to store shelves-- but not you, good reader, as you are an astute person with their ear to the tracks for this kind of thing, and good for you. I appreciate that. How is this fourth release of a 1980s mold? Pretty good, actually-- it's basically a redeco of the 2008 Dagger Squad version.

As far as toy vehicles go, the B-Wing (courtesy of its packaging and how it ships) provides one of the best user experiences around for Star Wars spacecraft. Kudos to Hasbro's packaging department for a well-engineered series of inserts, but more on that later.

And wouldn't you love to know what the 1984 ship cost and if the 2011 one is a bargain adjusted for inflation? Click through for images and impressions, after the break.

Habsro Star Wars Vintage Y-Wing Hits Australia

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 19, 2011

One of the dangers for holding back product announcements for one or two times a year is that leaks are pretty likely-- especially when a "leak" is a full release of the product in another country!  MouseDroid.com reports that Toys R Us Australia already has the Y-Wing Fighter for AUS$69.99.  Hasbro has still yet to confirm this item for a US release, but odds are the USA will be seeing it in July or August.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,564

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 13, 2011
