Star Wars Fighter Pods Naboo Starfighter Shipping, Here's Another Video

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 8, 2012

The Naboo Starfighter Pack is the sole carded "vehicle pack" in Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 3.  (There's a boxed one too, so don't fret too much.)  It includes an exclusive Anakin Skywalker, Darth Maul, and Naboo Starfighter while introducing the new "Spinfire Launchers" which aren't half bad.  Despite the series being more than 50% repaints, the new elements are actually a heck of a lot of fun in this set.  See the video and figures after the jump... or don't.  Whatever.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,888

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 7, 2012

There are many, many C-3PO figures and this is one of them.  Based on a retooled and redecorated 2005 mold, the Resurgence of the Jedi release has some extra smudging and black oil paint. Is it cool?  Read on!

Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 3 Shipping, Bonus Horrible Video Review

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 6, 2012

Good news, everyone! Star Wars Fighter Pods Series 3 are here!  I got a box of blind-bagged figures the other day and made a short video highlighting the new packaging and new figures like Savage Opress, Ahsoka Tano, and Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise.  Several awesome new figures are included, as well as an obscene number of new holographic figures... including Jabba the Hutt.  Want to see more?  Check out the video after the jump.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,887

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 6, 2012

This Plo Koon was built off a modified 2002 release with some changes made from the waist on down, allowing the figure to sit.  Sort of.  Is it worth getting? Should you complete the Jedi High Council?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,886

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 5, 2012

It's R5-D8! I know it looks like R5-D4, but it's not.  Trust me.  This redeco uses a build-a-droid body and creates Jek Porkins' trusty droid in a different paint job than they did for Galactic Heroes. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,885

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Not quite as exciting as an all-new astromech, this older Destroyer Droid has limited articulation but a decent sculpt.  There's not a lot to it, but it looks good. Want to know more? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,884

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 3, 2012

Given the nebulous nature of what constitutes an actual full figure, the Red R9-Series Astromech Droid is more than a little arbitrary.  We'll be viewing the Star Tours Droid Factory figures as unique characters, defined by the dome.  (The body is, of course, up to you.)  This one is bright red, almost orange, with a rich silver texture and a softer sculpt than his brothers.  Is it worth the trip and obscene price on eBay?
