This week on The Clone Wars: We kick off actual, genuine fun with "Secret Weapons." We know we're in for a departure this week because the "Clone Wars" logo was bright blue instead of the usual yellow. R2-D2 and a team of droids team up with a Republic tactician to obtain a widget from a separatist flagship. It's the best episode of the season. It may be the best episode of the series. I had a big, dumb grin on my face the entire time watching this one. More after the break. (Best. Episode. Ever.)
This Darth Maul was one of a few new sculpts cranked out this year, and as luck would have it I'm spying tons of these in Walmart 8-packs around town all of a sudden. It's a fun figure, and is a gem as 1/8 of a $25 set.
This version of Ki-Adi-Mundi comes from a 2008 Battle Pack which many fans missed. It didn't get very good distribution, but it's not too expensive and it's a wonderful set full of robots and clones. How can you go wrong?
Welcome to Galactic Hunter Q&A's 2012 Season Finale! Let's talk playsets and the infusion of new product thanks to Christmas. We can also talk about Hasbro's greatest Star Wars hits while you watch me whine incessantly about figure and vehicle compatibility. Oh, and robots.
The holiday shopping season is in full swing and if you've been waiting for a good time to jump on the sensational ToysRUs exclusive Vintage Collection Millennium Falcon, the moment is here.
For Star Wars fans and collectors, having a passionate advocate and steward like a Steve Sansweet, who also just happens to be the custodian of the largest Star Wars collection in the galaxy, is like catching lightning in a bottle. Not only does he have a collection you can never even dream of owning (let alone housing), but he can write, and write pretty well, of all the relevant events and collectibles from both a fan and collector standpoint because he bore witness to and collected most of them. Like E.F. Hutton, when Steve writes, every Star Wars fan should read.
An auction of one of the most complete collections of loose Star Wars action figures will be launched on eBay Nov. 29 for the benefit of Rancho Obi-Wan. The auction is in conjunction with the one year anniversary of ROW and the release of the new book, Star Wars: The Ultimate Action Figure Collection.
Sale ends Tuesday! Over 90 awesome items have had their prices slashed to preposterous levels in the Entertainment Earth Cyber Week Sale. Choose from Luke Skywalker's Yavin Jacket in three sizes, Gentle Giant statues, dozens of awesome action figures, and a bunch of other stuff. Heck, you could give them as gifts, too! More after the break!
Let's finish up this trilogy of purple astromech droids while I listen to Freezepop and post the R4-Series Astromech Droid in this lovely coloring. You'll like it. Trust me. Mace Windu would, too.
It looks like it belongs to Mace Windu, but the Purple R6-Series Astromech Droid is one of many robots you can build at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando. Well, maybe, getting the pieces you want is something of a trick.
Ahh, the Purple R3-Series Astromech Droid. This Orlando exclusive is a pain in the next to get, but pretty neat because of the crystal-clear colorless dome and the purple detailing. Should you get one?
The 2010 AT-AT was released to much fanfare and acclaim for its larger size, cool electronic action features, and movie inspired playability that outshone the older and oft used Kenner mold. A ToysRUs exclusive Vintage Collection Empire Strikes Back packaged version was also released during the holiday season of that year, and quickly sold out at a $110 pricepoint.
This week on The Clone Wars: We end the Young Jedi story with "A Necessary Bond," which ties together plot points from several previous episodes into a pretty awesome conclusion. Count Dooku takes revenge of Hondo Ohnaka for kidnapping? It's here! Remember a very specific ship that crashed on Florrum a few years ago? It's here too! The episode gets a little weird in spots but hey, at least it isn't boring.
Behold, the best-ever Watto action figure on the market today! The price isn't bad, the deco is better than the 1999 version, plus he has a swell companion figure. Do you know which one this is? You will!
