Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,933

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 9, 2012

Based on the last season of the original Clone Wars cartoon, this Anakin Skywalker figure is tarted up with leech secretions and looks pretty dang great!  Sure, we got a "realistic" version later but this is where the unique look came from.  You want one, right?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,932

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 8, 2012

So Adi Gallia got her last new figure around 2004, which was itself a retool of the 1999 figure, which wasn't that great in the first place.  She can sit, and a Stass Allie figure was released at the same time that is, for all intents and purposes, the same dang figure.  It's part of the Jedi High Council set, so fans elevate her higher than the figure deserves, and diorama display people will probably want this one too.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,931

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 7, 2012

This R2-D2 is pretty slick, and has been released twice so far... each time as an exclusive.  The uniquely sculpted figure has blown-open panels and exposed wiring, effectively making this a "dead" R2-D2.  It's wonderful.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - The Gathering

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 6, 2012

This week on The Clone Wars: A New Hope! If you wanted magic, "The Gathering" delivered by introducing several new characters on a rarely-seen planet. Best of all, this episode was actually fun to watch. I'm actually jealous of kids who get to see this as children, I think I'd have been pretty stoked to have seen this at age 6 or 7. It's also probably the cutest thing you as a Star Wars fan will ever see on television. As always, spoilers and video await you!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Ahhh this is a good one.  Thanks to my pal Shannon for helping me to get the Black R6 Series Astromech Droid, one of my favorites from the new Droid Factory at Disney Hollywood Studios Orlando.  Is it worth tracking down?

SWAN 369: A Mouse In The House

By Mike — Tuesday, November 6, 2012

It's been exactly one week since the news broke: Disney buys Lucasfilm, Episode VII in 2015. It's a major change of course for a franchise that had long been declared dormant, and one that will have far-reaching impact on Star Wars collectors. On this week's Star Wars Action News podcast, Marjorie and Arnie take your voicemails, giving podcast listeners the stage to share their excitement and their trepidation about this news.

Video Review: Target Exclusive Special Edition Darth Maul Tin Fighter Pods Set

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 5, 2012

It's on sale for a couple of  bucks off right now! The Target Special Edition Darth Maul Tin Fighter Pods Set should be widely available near you, and it's pretty good.  Eight of the figures are repacks from series 1, but there are several unique clone troopers, a metallic Darth Maul, and the first-ever figure of Ziro the Hutt plus some uniquely-shaped pods.  I won't lie to you, I happily paid full price for it just to get a Ziro.  Check out all the new little figures after the break.
