SWAN #358: C6 And Chicago Comic-Con

By Mike — Wednesday, August 15, 2012

2012's Convention season is ending not with a whimper but with a bang! Star Wars Celebration VI starts in 10 days, but last weekend was also Wizard World's Chicago Comic-Con, and on this week's Star Wars Action News podcast Marjorie and Arnie run down both.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,871

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 15, 2012

New for 2012, but old now, is the first-ever movie-specific Quinlan Vos figure.  Based on a background extra, this presumed authentic release looks fantastic. Should you get one?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,870

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 14, 2012

While not as new as some recently featured figures, Yoda is no less impressive!  This tiny figure is more of a statue than an action figure, and he's super-cheap on eBay.  The figure has an amazing paint job and, frankly, looks better than a lot of the movie Yodas out there.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,869

There's nothing else to ask about? And does someone really think Hasbro will get to putting out Malakili on a vintage card? I gotta say, I don't, but I ramble on about Ewoks this week so who am I to judge taste? Read on and send in your questions for an upcoming column!

Review: Vintage Collection Scout Walker (AT-ST)

By Mike — Sunday, August 12, 2012

Hasbro repaints 2009's awesome AT-ST mold, repacks it in a Vintage Collection box, and offers it up as a K-Mart exclusive. For $34.99, it's rightly priced without a figure compared to the $44 that included one with the Legacy Collection Wal-Mart exclusive. Are the superb Vintage packaging and enhanced deco enough to make you collect another Chicken Walker?
