Image Bank: VC81 Ben Quadinaros & Otoga-222

By Mike — Friday, January 20, 2012

Presenting the Susan Lucci of the Fan's Choice Polls. Always the bridesmaid never the bride and all that stuff. Ben Quadinaros finally gets plasticized and in good style as a figure with good sculpt and likeness to the character and a workmanlike 12 points of articulation. He's packed with an Otoga-222 pit droid that was originally included with the 1999 Ody Mandrell figure. With the upcoming release of Mawhonic, the circle of pod racers are complete.

Image Bank: VC82 Daultay Dofine

By Mike — Thursday, January 19, 2012

As far as figures in action are concerned, Neimoidians probably are up there with Imperial Dignitaries. They're just supposed to stand, sometimes speak, and scheme. The captain of the Trade Federation battleship blockading Naboo was remembered more as a "stunted slime" than anything, but Hasbro chose to put some real thought in his figure and give him a fully sculpted body and soft goods. Daultay Dofine is excellently designed with a removable headpiece and sculpted robe with a cloth material that drapes well. We're hoping Hasbro gives the same treatment when they finally (hopefully) release Sim Aloo

'I'm Retiring"

By Mike — Wednesday, January 18, 2012

The New York Times conducts a revealing and insightful interview with George Lucas for his Tuskegee Airmen biopic, Red Tails, which hits theaters this Friday. Some highlights include his desire to back away from big blockbuster type movies and focus on smaller personal art films, the pushback he received from the studios for the World War II adventure drama resulting in Lucas putting up the money himself, and what he really thinks about all those complaining fanboys. After all these years, he's still the renegade. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,720

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Very few Phantom Menace figures were made since 2001, so this R2-T0 is quite a treat on many levels.  It may not be 100% authentic to the stills from the film, but I'm OK with that.  It's gorgeous! I hope you have one, read on now!
