SWAN 367: Bring On The Barge!

By Mike — Tuesday, October 30, 2012

For years many fans' holy grail for the Star Wars 3.75-inch collection has been an original trilogy vehicle never realized in either vintage or modern era--Jabba's Sail Barge.  The scale and scope of such a vehicle has made it seemingly prohibitive, but at this year's New York Comic-Con the Star Wars brand team mentioned that they could possibly do it.

GHR: Where Are You At, AT-AT?

By Mike — Monday, October 29, 2012

So the BIG Vintage Millennium Falcon flew in last week in all its $250 glory and collectors are wondering about the other ToysRUs big holiday exclusive, the ROTJ Vintage Endor AT-AT with uniquely painted "poopie feet". The partial answer lies with our neighbors to the north.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,924

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 29, 2012

Check out this awesome figure!  The Red R2-Series Astromech Droid is, like, super-red.  Almost orange, that's how red it is.  You can only get it at Star Tours in Orlando... or perhaps eBay, and let me tell you it's arguably worth it.  Want to know more?  Read on!

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!

GHR: TRU Big Book, K-Mart Exclusives On Sale

By Mike — Sunday, October 28, 2012

The annual ToysRUs Big Book is out today and it has a few Star Wars deals that you may want to look into. I guess there was a reason why my local TRU's had so many Republic Attack Shuttles upstocked on the top shelf.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Troops

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, October 27, 2012

This week in Galactic Hunter Video Theater, it's Troops, arguably the first fan film phenomenon of the internet age! In it, we see a bunch of special effects and voiceover pros put together 10 minutes that were, to say the least, a huge deal in the era of dial-up internet. In it, you'll see pre-501st Legion costumes and some sharp design work come together from 1997. Creator Kevin Rubio got quite a few decent gigs writing Star Wars comics (also The Clone Wars) as after doing Troops, so check it out after the break!

Brian's Toys: New Sideshow, Master Replicas Restock

By Mike — Friday, October 26, 2012

Sideshow Collectibles has been kind this month, delivering three great new products to our store.  Commander Neyo, STAP with Battle Droid, and the Tusken Raider are available now, and we must admit, this Tusken Raider is the best yet!  Also new are Masters of the Universe Classics Frosta and Rattlor.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,923

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 26, 2012

The second-ever commando to get a carded release, this animated The Clone Wars edition of Republic Commando Boss is really a nice toy and an unfortunate reminder that he's got a few brothers that haven't yet been rendered in plastic.  There's an awesome, clever backpack accessory and the figure's chunky build is really quite excellent.

Sideshow: Exclusive Mythos Fett Pre-Order

By Mike — Friday, October 26, 2012

He's armed to the hilt and ready to do some serious hurt on some unsuspecting bounty, at least according to Sideshow's Mythos expression. Standing about 19 inches tall (26 inches with the long blaster rifle), the upcoming Mythos Boba Fett strikes a compelling pose and ready for you to pre-order as a Sideshow exclusive.

GHR: TRU Tales Of The Vintage BMF, Big Boshuda Barges

By Mike — Friday, October 26, 2012

It's beginning to look a lot like…? Not yet, but it's almost here and ToysRUs is where the stuff is at the moment with their exclusive, expensive, and beautifully retro Kenner repackaged (B)ig (M)illennium (F)alcon. Now to that $250 conundrum.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,922

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 25, 2012

Our friend Sebulba  is a fine example of everything good and bad with the figures this year.  A redeco of a very good mold from 10 years ago, he's never looked better.  He's also an exclusive, who came out late, who's the only Sebulba of the year, and doesn't fit in the Sebulba Pod Racer vehicle which came out months earlier.  Ah well!  At least he's a good figure on his own, right?  Find out!
