Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,576

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 29, 2011

It's no secret, I love Ewoks.  I think the fact that a lot of collectors hate them makes me like them even more.  I was particularly jazzed to get the 2009 update of Paploo which, while I don't love as much as the 1984 original, I still like bunches.  Is he worth your while?  Read on!

It's not superbly common that we get a character like Anakin Skywalker in a disguise like this Naboo Pilot uniform without a regular Naboo Pilot coming out first-- but hey, here we are!  It's a neat figure with a neat ship.  Are you excited?  Should you be?  Read on!

Q&A: Pre-Holiday Bad Knee Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 26, 2011

Will Hasbro ever make a Z-95 Headhunter? Don't get your hopes up. What do you do when your mail-away figures don't show up? Complain, of course! And playsets again? Geez, is that all you people want to ask about? Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, June 24, 2011

If you've been enjoying Hasbro's Kenner-style Special Action Figure Set 3-packs at Target, the guys at LightGeschindigKeit.de have fully-packaged shots of more of them-- with no new figures and a few decent repacks. As always, figures are from Star Wars and Empire. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,573

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, June 24, 2011

Some like it Hoth, like this Rebel Trooper variant from last year! It's a Target exclusive, and pretty slick. It's similar to the 2009 carded release, save for the hair color.  Should you get it?  Read on!

New Star Wars Saga Legends Spacetrooper Includes Gun Now

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, June 24, 2011

Last year when Hasbro released the Spacetrooper, it had shoulder pads, a jetpack, and a droid bit.  The droid bit is gone, and now that he's shipping from Hasbro in Saga Legends packaging, he's got a new (to him) gun. (The ammo thing isn't on the side like a Stormtrooper gun, rather it appears similar to a redeco of Wioslea's weapon.) Click through for bigger pics.

 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,572

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 23, 2011

One of Jabba's dancers, this Rystall figure has been readily available online throughout the 2000s, cheaply, and has been blown out and later reissued as a Wal-Mart exclusive. In short: she's very very cheap.  Should you get one?  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 22, 2011

After Hasbro gave us our first R3-A2, it was a little surprising to see them go back and try again-- but hey, it's way better! This build-a-droid was a wonderful release that, hopefully, you bought. Because it's great.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,570

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 21, 2011

If you love Tusken Raider figures, Hasbro decided to do you a solid by releasing a "red clan" in early 2007 so you can add a little something new and different to your collection. I like this idea.  So how did the "vintage" molded figure turn out?  Read on!
