The just-released and as far as I can tell, barely in stores Aqua Droid is an odd duck. It's an amazing piece of toy engineering, but it can't stand up-- not even with its stand-- for more than a few hours. Gravity, thou art a heartless... nevermind. Anyway, should you get it? Read on!
Wow, it's Figure of the Day #1500! What a milestone! To celebrate, we're going to look at a fun figure from 2010-- Pre Vizsla, the Mandalorian with the most gear. His helmet comes off, his articulation is exceptional, and really, you should buy him. Read on!
Since 2005, fans were wanting a new version of Commander Bacara, preferably with more articulation and less action-gimmickry. This one pulls through nicely, and was sold on individual cards in 2009. Did you get one when you had the chance, and should you track him down? Read on!
So when is Hasbro going to give us that Vintage Yak Face we all so obviously need? And should we keep pre-mourning vehicles? Sure, why not. And why is Yoda's lightsaber painted all funky these days? All this and more await you in this week's Q&A, send in questions as we're reaching the end of the mailbag!
All Star Wars collectors will want to check out this weeks Brian's Toys newsletter. The newsletter features a handful of Vintage 12-Backs AFA graded, new Gentle Giant busts, and Clone Wars 2-Packs.
Here is a quick update from http://www.bigbadtoystore.com about a variety of new arrivals and another big batch of new preorders.
Nice upgrade! This Padme Amidala was sold both individually and in Evolutions sets during The Legacy Collection's 2-year run, and is loaded with gear and articulation. It's a big improvement over the 2002 edition! Read on!
If you've been collecting figures from Japan, the new batch of Star Wars Kubrick DX Wave 3 should be of interest. Not only is there a build-a-vehicle of a Landspeeder, but the bulk of the figures' aesthetics are heavily influenced by 1970s Kenner action figures. I stumbled on these pictures at NCS today.
For years fans observed there weren't enough Rebel pilots, and by the time we got to John D. Branon it was pretty obvious that we now have too many. With more pilots than vehicles, is there a reason to pick up this exclusive from 2009? Read on!
What's this? Another Battle Droid, that's what. This was another 2-pack release, complete with removable limbs. A Wookiee can totally pull his arms out of his sockets. Do you need him for your armies? Read on!
So what kind of robe will Barriss Offee have? Why does Hasbro make so many trooper figures? (Really? We're asking this now?) And should you be worried about those Raiders of the Lost Ark figures coming to Comic-Con? All this and more, if you just read on!
Because you love this kind of stuff, I've got some impressions of Hasbro Star Wars The Vintage Collection Wave 6 for you! This new batch of figures started shipping to online stores just after Toy Fair, meaning you can either grab them online or hunt them down in your favorite-- or least-favorite-- local stores. What does the first truly mixed wave of new, non-repainted figures have for you? Read on!
For some reason, Hasbro opted to put this Clone Trooper with a vehicle rather than separately, making it tough to army-build. Matching Snow Captain Rex, this figure comes with a Freeco Bike-- and it's pretty cool. (Get it?) Anyway, should you get one? Read on!
