Star Wars Action News Episode 335: Cereal Killer

By Mike — Wednesday, February 29, 2012

When The Phantom Menace was released in 1999 the food tie-ins were omnipresent.  From Kentucky Fried Chicken to Taco Bell to Pepsi to Doritos you could almost have an entire (albeit unhealthy) diet of Star Wars branded foods.  While the 3-D rerelease is a bit more subdued, there are still a number of Star Wars food tie-in collectibles in your local grocery store.  On this week's Star Wars Action News podcast, Marjorie and Arnie run down several Star Wars food items, including cereal pack-in pens and posters, gummy candies, Easter candy lightsabers, and many more!

By Mike — Monday, February 27, 2012

We have to get our information somewhere, and if it can't be from Hasbro, why not the Germans? After Hasbro decided not to release the Toy Fair 2012 Powerpoint Presentation to collector media last month for some odd reason, we finally get to see it courtesy of Figuren.com of Germany.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,749

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 27, 2012

OK, so we just posted a gallery-- but don't you want to read more about the Mon Calamari Rebel Pilot?  If you do, today's Figure of the Day is for you! The good news: he can sit in some A-Wings. The bad? Not well. Read on!

Image Bank: VC91 Rebel Pilot (Mon Calamari)

By Mike — Sunday, February 26, 2012

We normally like our Calamari lightly breaded, sauteed in garlic butter, with spicy cherry peppers, then pan fried to a golden crisp. But this new Mon Calamari A-Wing Pilot from the ROTJ Blu-Ray Deleted Scene is the business.

Image Bank: VC90 Colonel Cracken (Millennium Falcon Crew)

By Mike — Sunday, February 26, 2012

We finally have the Cracken released, and he's a mix of old and new. The head and top torso are new while the bottom legs are from 2006's Rebel Trooper (SAGA046).  The actual figure doesn't look anything like the guy on the cardback, who actually bears a close resemblance to one of the kiosk folks at my local mall, stubble and all.

By Mike — Sunday, February 26, 2012

There was a question in a past Q&A about finding The Legacy Collection Millennium Falcon (aka BMF) at retail and FREE Shipping. Well, we have the answer to this question, this week's ToysRUs deal, and an update to yesterday's Walmart $4 Vintage bonanza in today's Galactic Hunt Report!

GHR: $4 Vintage, ALL OF THEM, At Walmart

By Mike — Saturday, February 25, 2012

Walmart screwed up, and it's to your benefit, Hunters. They've marked down ALL their Vintage Collection basic figures to $4 (regularly $8.96). ALL means the latest The Phantom Menace and Blu-Ray Deleted Scenes waves (if you can find them).
