It's almost dirty!  The first-ever Labria action figure has since been repainted, but there's no denying the intrigue around a first-release.  Or rather, there wouldn't be if there weren't thousands of the things.  Is it any good?  Read on!

Toy Fair: Best In Show

By Mike — Thursday, February 17, 2011

Another cold, wintery Toy Fair is behind us, and while we understand the reasons behind having it in New York in February, there has to be some workaround where we aren't under a blizzard warning every year and don't have to explain to our spouses or significant others why Valentine's Day for a toy geek actually falls the next Saturday after Toy Fair. But we digress.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,482

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 17, 2011

This Boba Fett looks a lot like the 2007 Animated Debut version, but it isn't.  Well, it's close-- it was supposed to be redecorated, but Hasbro gave this one an accessory transplant.  Worth a look?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,481

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Back in 1999 and 2000, Hasbro really cranked out a lot of Jar Jar Binks figures.  Some had great head sculpts, some... well, some were like this.  He looks bored, doesn't have jointed legs, and the paint is basically OK.  Should you bother?  Read on!

This Saga Legends Sandtrooper is one of my favorites.  It's a good mold with a great paint wipe, which resulted in a stunning figure which people actually still want today.  (Unreal, I know.)  You should get one-- so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,479

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 14, 2011

So hey, it's Warok, in theory.  It looks a little like the vintage 1980s action figure, although the coloring is different from what we saw on the old Kenner cardback.  It seems like, for now, this is probably the only modern Warok we'll get-- is he worth it?  Read on!

By Mike — Monday, February 14, 2011

They introduced a 1/10 scale version in 2009 that features a tad more poseability in swappable parts, yet doesn't sacrifice on the detail.
