By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 24, 2010

Oh, what a difference ten years makes.  There was a time where Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise) was an unbelievably big deal-- first as a mail-in, than as this store exclusive.  Today?  Worthless.   It's still a nice figure though-- read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 23, 2010

Is this Darth Maul the best so far?  Maybe!  It's certainly the best at sitting, and it's easily the best toy one so far.  There's still room for improvement, but this 1999 release is so good, Hasbro still has it in circulation today.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,440

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 21, 2010

One of the most iconic aliens in the entire Star Wars saga are the Cantina Band musicians, which surprisingly didn't see plastic for the first time until 1997. Also surprising: the 2007 version of the character is the 1997 one with new paint. Is it any better?  Read on!
