What a difference a year makes!  In 2009, this was one of the hottest topics and most-debated issues, because Captain Typho was really hard to get.  Now?  Well, you're probably more concerned with Celebration V than how amazing this figure is, complete with crazy gear and amazing detail.  Show some respect-- read on!

This Is It! THE Must-Have Exclusive at Celebration V

By Adam May — Tuesday, August 10, 2010

So here's the thing, we're literally HOURS (I'm counting them) from Celebration V in Orlando, FL. and friends keep asking me what is the must-have Celebration V exclusive, and, while I'd LOVE a Wampa Rug/Tauntaun Sleeping Bag — which I'd have to use if I brought them home (I'd take pictures of my exile) I know in my bones that the 4-LOM/Zuckuss Retro-Vintage Mix-Up Combo by Hasbro is the one thing I cannot live without.

Figure of the Day: Day 1,345

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 10, 2010

You may be able to find this Tall Jedi Padawan if you go to Florida this week!  The Star Tours exclusive was reportedly not a huge hit, so some might be around in a Disney park near... well, someone.  Is he worth grabbing?  Read on!

The Imperial AT-AT (2010) — DisPLAY With Your Toys

By Adam May — Monday, August 9, 2010

Since not all of our Imperial AT-AT Walkers were asked to take part in the 11:38 "sneak attack" series, we were heading in another direction. This is the first of a series of photo montages of the new Imperial AT-AT "in play". We assume that this part of Blizzard Force is taking on the first wave of Rebel scum (no relation) to make way for Darth Vader's arrival. (Once again, note that the all-new Imperial AT-AT comes with ONE (1) AT-AT Driver and ONE (1) Speederbike.) Some of the products shown are not currently available at retail, but we hope they're in your collection anyway.

Q&A: Hoth Happenings, Huge Collections, Quitting, and E.T. Again

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 8, 2010

Celebration V is this week and the rumor is that the live action show is on hold forever!  What can we talk about?  How about yet more people quitting collecting?  We could see how you should say certain names, and even if Hasbro may draw inspiration from other licensors.  We’ve even got some interesting stuff—read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,343

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 6, 2010

Hey kids, it's the first-ever Wedge Antilles action figure!  He has 6 joints, a Hoth pilot outfit, and basically is worth getting only if you're a card-carrying member of the Cult of Wedge.  But should you read on anyway?  Yes.
