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: 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.

Star Wars Fighter Pods Naboo Starfighter Shipping, Here's Another Video

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 8, 2012

The Naboo Starfighter Pack is the sole carded "vehicle pack" in Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 3.  (There's a boxed one too, so don't fret too much.)  It includes an exclusive Anakin Skywalker, Darth Maul, and Naboo Starfighter while introducing the new "Spinfire Launchers" which aren't half bad.  Despite the series being more than 50% repaints, the new elements are actually a heck of a lot of fun in this set.  See the video and figures after the jump... or don't.  Whatever.

Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 2 Shipping, Horrible Video Review

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 20, 2012

The second batch of Hasbro's Fighter Pods, tiny blind-bagged and painted Star Wars figures, have started shipping.  Unfortunately the blind bags don't include checklists, nor do they include the online game codes promised on the bags. (There's a sticker covering this.) We got some.  Want to know more? Did you see the McQuarrie Concept Boba Fett Fighter Pods Figure that everybody needs to get? Click through for a list of characters (and a video with some nice close-ups) after the jump.
