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.
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!
Over at the Gentle Giant Blog, they revealed their next 2011 San Diego Comic-Con International exclusive: a giant Vinyl Caped Jawa! Neato. Guild member pre-orders are up now and for the rest of us... well, I'm crossing my fingers.
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!
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!
The official site has a story about The Clone Wars Complete Season 3 home video release, which means DVDs and Blu-Ray discs on October 18. Lots of deleted scenes. It's going to be an expensive Fall, kids!
This Shadow Trooper is supposed to be a Clone in bounty hunter disguise. Not a very good one, as it looks pretty much like the Shadow Troopers of Utapau. It's neat though-- as German exclusives that got dumped online go, it's nice enough. Read on!
Let's talk about Jocasta Nu some more. Because why not? And playsets too, this is stll a fresh topic. Aw heck, let's do it twice. And how do you deal with no-longer-sticky stickers? I actually have a solution for you that works and is cheap. I've also found a figure where the paint literally melted off-- good job, Hasbro! Find out which one was the culprit. So read on, because it's more fun than working!
One of the dangers for holding back product announcements for one or two times a year is that leaks are pretty likely-- especially when a "leak" is a full release of the product in another country! MouseDroid.com reports that Toys R Us Australia already has the Y-Wing Fighter for AUS$69.99. Hasbro has still yet to confirm this item for a US release, but odds are the USA will be seeing it in July or August.
So remember a few months ago when we posted a shot of a really big Executor toy that LEGO hadn't announced yet? Well, LEGO announced it with some high-res pics. So let's all pretend it's a surprise and read on! (Seriously, it looks cool.)
Before you bring the funk-- as I assume that's what you'll be doing if you aren't watching Super 8-- check out this Super Battle Droid. It's part of a Battle Pack which is pretty easy to get, so if you're in the market for something new (to you) it might be worth a look. Read on!
In 1991, we found out Han and Leia had kids. In 2010, we got figures of them. Jacen Solo was born with the big Star Wars comeback of the 1990s but didn't get a toy until he was both an adult, and if memory serves he was quite dead by the time the toy happened. (SPOILERS?
Looking to see something new for Star Wars on TV since the live-action show may be a ways off? The Official Site added a preview video showcasing some new characters and situations from the upcoming fourth season of The Clone Wars show. How is it? Well, go look.
If you like black repaints of the Scout Trooper, Hasbro has been really good to you over the past few years. This Storm Commando is one of four repaints and/or remolds I can think of off the top of my head, exclusive to Wal-Mart last Spring. Should you care? Read on!
