Review: Stormtrooper - TBS [P2] - #08

Posted by Paul | May 25, 2015 at 08:47 AM EDT |

The Black Series [Phase II] Stormtrooper may divide the community on whether it's an improvement over past releases or not, but we think if you can find one with a good paint job that it will be the best modern Stormtrooper money can buy.

Why The Vintage Collection Needs To Return Stat....

Posted by Paul | May 25, 2015 at 08:04 AM EDT |

Our friends at BanthaSkull.com have posted a very well put together article showing the undeniable passion Star Wars collectors have for The Vintage Collection. The points to take away from this article are numerous, but you should definitely not assume that any of us think e-scalping is OK. This is what WE are paying for these neo classic action figures because we want them, not because we want to pay these prices. It's time to be done with The Black Series 3.75" nonsense and get back to what all of us love the most. Hasbro has confirmed that the 6" line is doing well (and that may be true from a certain point of view), but you can find 95% of them online somewhere for less than their normal MSRP. Yet, some of The Vintage Collection'c biggest peg-warmers (TIE Fighter Pilot repack anyone?) are commanding high values today on eBay. Check out their article.

The Black Series Finally Hits My Local TARGET!

Posted by Paul | May 24, 2015 at 04:32 PM EDT |

Figures that should have been in stores around September 2014 have JUST begun hitting my local TARGET in piece meal. Approaching a year from their originally intended release date, my local brick and mortar had Darth Malgus and Darth Vader from The Black Series [Phase II] 3.75" line. Shocking! I don't know whether to be happy or irritated. It's so confusing!

Wave 1 Rebels Figures Still Hitting Retail (In PA At Least)

Posted by Paul | May 24, 2015 at 04:27 PM EDT |

It's almost the unofficial beginning of summertime and Walmart still appears to be getting wave 1 of the Rebels line. I found actually MULTIPLES of Agent Kallus and Ezra and Kanan figures (all first version card backs). Obvioulsy the Choppers were long gone. But it may be worth to check your local store to see if they're getting this "age old" case assortments too. What a mess!

TBS [P2] Wave 7 Stormtrooper (#08) IS NOT A Straight Repack!

Posted by Paul | May 19, 2015 at 07:48 PM EDT |

Well blow me down! To my shock, I just learned that 2015's The Black Series [Phase II] Stormtrooper is NOT a straight repack of 2013's The Black Series [Phase I] Stormtrooper (#13) figure. Besides a much better and cleaner paint job, Hasbro has also added some missing paint operations on the abdomen area (and one or two other spots as well). But the biggest change? Hasbro took the 2004 VOTC Stormtrooper portrait, slightly tooled the way it attaches to the ball-socket joint and has given this figure an all-new head sculpt. It looks SO MUCH better than the Sandtrooper head sculpt, so this was a major plus. The only remaining disappointment now is the slot in the back for a survival backpack. Why must Hasbro do these upgrades so incrementally? We think that this is now the best Stormtrooper money can buy. We will be placing orders for many more! The review to this figure will be coming shortly to our RDRs, but I thought you would like to know about this potential quantity-ordering altering news. Oh, and they changed his number from #15 to #08 to make the sequence (right now) gap free thanks to the cancelled indefinitely postponed Princess Leia Organa (Yavin Ceremony) figure.
