By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 6, 2012

It's time for Q&A! Let's talk TV - is it possible something is too "adult" for toys? Is it time to stop buying three of each action figure? Yes. And And let's talk realistic Clone Wars figures too, just because. Read on for more exciting fun in this week's Q&A!

Image Bank Review: MH20 Darth Vader

By Mike — Sunday, May 6, 2012

"The Force is with you, young Skywalker, but you are not a Jedi yet." This new Movie Heroes action figure, with that light-up lightsaber, captures that scene so amazingly well. It geekily inspired me to load up "Clash of the Lightsabers" on my iPod and photograph him on the POTJ Bespin playset to capture the essence of that scene and…wow...THAT's it. If you're a Vader fan, or even a passing Star Wars fan, you owe it to yourself to pick this figure up.

Here are the Nth releases of these characters within the past 4 months that could potentially cause some redundancy and over saturation in retail. From the head up, they're excellent, and you may argue that at least one or two are the best yet. But the 5 points of articulation are causing much menace for a few collectors, especially since these head sculpts are meant for more action.

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, May 4, 2012

This Qui-Gon Jinn figure from 2008ish is basically the basis for most Qui-Gon figures you can buy at a store today.  He's super-articulated and has a robe...

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 3, 2012

Image Bank Review: Bespin Battle Battle Pack

By Mike — Thursday, May 3, 2012

When Hasbro bragged during their speedy presentation at this year's Toy Fair that these new Battle Pack figures are the best they've done of these characters yet, they were somewhat correct... from a certain point of view. The regression in articulation has caused much controversy and debate in the collector community since. Yes, these figures feature excellent sculpting and awful POTF2 era poseability. No, it doesn't have to be this good and that bad.
