Image Bank: VC22 Admiral Ackbar

By Mike — Saturday, November 13, 2010

It's a...triumph in plastic likeness as Hasbro creates the ultimate Ackbar for the 2010 Vintage Collection. We can't say enough about the sculpt of this figure, and the accompanying control panel accessory would be even that much more fantastic if it actually connects to a command chair that's part of a Rebel command bridge play environment.

Image Bank: VC21 Gamorrean Guard

By Mike — Saturday, November 13, 2010

The McRib is back. It's just that this little piggy is a wonderful combination of masterfully sculpted detail and great articulation that clearly makes this the best Gamorrean Guard ever. With a cool removable helmet and a nicely done soft goods skirt, you'll want to pick up a few of these to upgrade your Jabba's Palace diorama a few notches to spectacular.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,413

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 12, 2010

Hasbro made a ton of Battle Droid figures since 1999, some better than others.  This model was from their cheap era, in which we got two figures for the price of one-- at the time this was a really awesome thing, but today Hasbro gives us two super-articulated figures for the same price.  Hooray for the future-- but read on for the past!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,412

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 11, 2010

One of the better new aliens to come out of the prequels was the freakish Sebulba, and this was the first crack at him as an action figure.  It turned out well, but was eclipsed in just a few years with a far superior, larger, and more articulated version.  It happens-- but this one comes with his racer! Isn't that worth something?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,411

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Hey, it's one of the best Obi-Wan Kenobi action figures you can buy!  He's super-articulated and while an improved version was produced, the 2010 release of the figure proves the older one is still basically just fine.  Is it time to buy?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,410

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 9, 2010

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,409

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 8, 2010

Is he named after the dude in the U.N.?  Probably. Koffi Arana is seen here in his comic book outfit with red armor and spoileriffic stabbable torso.  Now that's pretty swell, ain't it?  Should you pick up this 2007, or wait until Mustafar freezes over for a new version?  Read on!
