By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 21, 2013

If you haven't seen it, it's out!  A 501st Legion Clone Trooper Action Figure which stands a whopping 31-inches tall may be at a Toys R Us near you for under 40 bones, or clams, or what have you right now.  Toys R Us stores are open slightly later now, so if you've got nothing better to do feel free to waddle on down and see what all is in their freshly-restocked action figure sector.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,062: Que-Mars Redath (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 21, 2013

While it's not uncommon for a figure to have a minor error or two, Que-Mars Redath received two of them - and they're pretty interesting ones, at that.  This isn't the first Weequay Jedi, nor do we anticipate it to be the last.  It is, however, the first figure in the last set we're going to be looking at this week so go ahead and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,061: TC-70 (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Check out the movie version of TC-70, Jabba's protocol droid from The Clone Wars movie.  It's pretty nice - it's also the build-a-droid from Amazon's exclusive Legacy 6-pack.  Should you get it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,060: 212th Battalion Clone Trooper (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I know what you're thinking  - didn't you buy a Vintage 212th Battalion Clone Trooper just about two years ago?  Yes, but this one is just different enough to make you mad!  New damage markings and slightly different orange patterning await you on this exclusive Droid Factory figure which now uses the 2011 Vintage Clone body, which the previous version did not.  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,059: Sun Fac (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 18, 2013

Did you know you needed another Sun Fac? Neither did I.  This Amazon-exclusive 2013 release is a redeco of the 2006 pegwarmer original, which would surely have poisoned the pegs.  As such, we're all happy to see it online.  It has fewer accessories than the original, lacks the eye scar, and has slightly different deco.  Is the new release worth it?  Read on! 

Q&A: 2013 Season Finale with Vehicles, Adhesives, Displays, and Tangents

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 17, 2013

Let's close out 2013 with the final Q&A of the year! Watch me ramble. Watch someone else ramble. Let's all ramble, and we'll regroup after the New Year with whatever new questions you send in - keep them coming!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,058: Black Squad TIE Pilot (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 15, 2013

What's new with the Black Squad TIE Pilot, Amazon's exclusive Droid Factory figure? Not much.  The highlights are the inclusion of the rectangular gun which recalls the Kenner original, and the fact that the figure has not two, but one Imperial logo on his helmet.  Read on!

2014 Star Wars Lego Revealed - Revenge of the Sith-Heavy

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 14, 2013

As seen at The Brothers Brick, this feature on 2014 LEGO Star Wars sets shows how much more fallout we have from the abrupt changes brought by the 3D reissues being dropped.  One set of Death Star Troopers is sure to delight pretty much everybody, while the other 10 sets are completely from the final prequel.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,057: Battle Droid (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 14, 2013

Did we need another Battle Droid, even if it's based on the exceptional Vintage design from 2012?  Probably not - the figure, despite being cool, has proven unpopular in its various toy forms.  Amazon's exclusive version includes a TC-70 part, which makes it much more essential for your toy box.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,056: FA-4 (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Let's look at FA-4, the sole newly-tooled figure in Amazon's Legacy/Droid Factory boxed set.  I'm pleased to report that it's pretty great - expensive, sure, but such is life these days for the Star Wars collector.  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,055: Sandtrooper (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 12, 2013

If this Amazon-exclusive Droid Factory Sandtrooper looks vaguely familiar, it should - Hasbro dusted off the really cool 2012 release, changed the pauldron, altered the mud, and gave him a droid part.  And presto! New figure.  At retail odds are you'd be swarming to get this, but as part of an online exclusive set with no real cohesion, it's probably going to be collector-only.  Ah well! You're missing out.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,054: Princess Leia Slave Outfit (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 11, 2013

Let's finish up the second wave of The Black Series with Princess Leia (Slave Outfit), a 6-inch figure that asks the question "so when do we get Jabba?"   She's short, but so is Carrie Fisher.  Is this truly the best Hasbro can do, or just their first attempt?  Read on!

Q&A: Displays, Rex, The New Figures, and Tales from the Road

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 10, 2013

It's Monday Q&A time! It's shorter, I've been on a lot of planes lately in between collecting Miis in airports. Let's talk about making your purchases count - do you matter? The answer may surprise you! Not really, but let's also talk about Captain Rex figures you don't have yet. And the big leak of 2013, which has nothing to do with what I had to do after getting off one of the aforementioned planes. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,053: Boba Fett (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, November 9, 2013

As of yesterday, I finally saw Boba Fett from The Black Series and all of his casemates in a Target store! Good hunting - but before you go hunt read Figure of the Day to see the new figure.  You may have read the SDCC review a few months ago, and the figure is basically the same - read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 8, 2013

Many of you  have written in lamenting the vanishing Boba Fett's Slave I Vintage jumbo vehicle on Amazon on and off over the last week and change.  As of right now it's in stock for $69.99, so if you were waiting go ahead and grab it.  And the Droid Factory set.   And the TIE Interceptor.  And maybe some Black Series figures.  For the first time in months, there are actually new things to buy!
