By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 3, 2011

We turn 1600 today!  We celebrate with a look at one of our favorite new figures, the ARC Trooper Commander which is, obviously, heavily inspired by Clone Fordo.  He has enough gear for two distinctive looks, so is he worth the gas or shipping costs?  Read on, and thanks for your support!

It's the new General Grievous packaged with the new Attack Cycle!  It's similar to one that came out in 2010, but it's less likely to fall apart--a big, big plus.  So should you get one?  Read on!

Toy Aurebesh Translated: Star Wars Clone Blaster

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 31, 2011

More translations!  This new Hasbro Clone Trooper blaster was shown at Comic-Con with a lot of words on its body-- but what do they mean?  The top row is "CC-2224," and that's Clone Commander Cody's identification number.  The bottom is "Republic."  Exciting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,597

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 28, 2011

Hasbro has no shortage of Darth Maul figures, and this one was particularly tough to get at first.  As one of the "Masters of the Dark Side," the set was quite scarce-- single figures came out later, and now it's cheap enough for you to get easily.  Should you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,596

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 25, 2011

He's small and fishy.  Robonino was one of those figures fans started asking for, subsequently got, and didn't really buy.  His Target-exclusive gift set is still available nearly 9 months after its introduction, which is a shame, as it's a nice set that should sell through. Should you get one?  Read on!
