It's interesting to see that this Battle Droid is getting another run, and is one of the oldest figures to get a redeco in the line's run. (First issue 1998, this issue 2012.) So the STAP is quite different, but how about the figure? Read on!
So let's talk about vehicles, and get a little less optimistic for 2012 in that department. Why isn't Hasbro better exploiting TV series based on its core properties for new toys? A fine question. And why hasn't Hasbro given us a Marvel Legends-ish line yet? Would someone please tell me, because I'd like to know in this week's Q&A!
Our sponsors at BigBadToyStore now have Clone Wars Wave 2 IN STOCK! This assortment includes Aayla Secura, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Season 4), Clone Commando Boss, and Captain Rex with Phase II Armor.
Disney Parks Blog has posted celebrity guests information for this year's Star Wars Weekends at Disney World in Orlando, Florida from May 18th through June 12th.
An eBay seller from Malaysia is selling some loose samples of The Vintage Collection Wave 4 and has added a few nice shots. This assortment, which was held over from last year, includes Dr. Evazan, Nom Anor, Kithaba, and Aayla Secura.
New limited edition Star Wars artwork has recently been added to Brianstoys.com! The highly detailed Obi-Wan Kenobi and Han Solo with Chebacca art by Jerry VanderStelt will make a great addition to any fan's room.
Deviations from the normal course can at times turn into disaster, and then there are the few instances where it results into brilliant execution. The new Clone Wars "realistic" Anakin Skywalker has to be considered the best one of this character yet. Don't believe me? Take a look at the comparison shot with VC13 Anakin Skywalker to make you marvel in its superiority.
Pre-orders for the new Sixth Scale Tusken Raider are now being taken! The figure features over 30 points of articulation and includes accessories such as a Tusken Raider Portrait and Slug Thrower Rifle. The Sideshow Limited Edition includes a Gaffi Weapon with Gun Stock.
Sideshow has posted a great preview shot of the upcoming Premium Format Captain Rex. More photos will be revealed on their Production Blog on April 10th with hopefully some pre-order information posted at that time as well.
Let's get this out of the way. That cardback is infallible like a holy relic and brings geeky tears to my eyes. Having a Darth Vader on a Kenner Star Wars card brings back so many memories, it's like an old childhood friendship rekindled. The action figure, while not entirely perfect, is pretty awesome too.
Imperial Navy Commander? Death Star Trooper? Why not keep it traditional planet obliterating evil with Death Squad Commander? The cardback is beautifully and nostalgically Kenner and the figure itself is certainly the best iteration of this character yet.
Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about some cool new arrivals and a bunch of exciting new preorders.
