Review: General Grievous - SW [TPM 3D] - Movie Heroes (MH07)

Posted by Paul | January 17, 2017 at 12:55 AM ET |

Remember the great Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] debacle? Well, we're going to be checking out some of the figures that helped create the worst bottle-necking of Star Wars figures of all time. Many feel it literally was the death knell for the 3.75" line. And to think it was all because of Episode I! Discover General Grievous, a figure whose sculpt was a very old at the time of its re-release in 2012, in our Research Droids Reviews today. Be sure to leave your own thoughts in our comments section, vote in the poll or even leave comments about it on our Facebook page.

Grand Admiral Thrawn Is Really The Best Thing About Rebels

Posted by Paul | January 16, 2017 at 10:42 AM ET |

And even I seem to know that. I was also wondering if there is going to be a Rebels panel this year at San Diego Comic Con. I think the guy that plays Grand Admiral Thrawn is a fantastic voice actor. Maybe he could subtly reveal future rumors about the show to me.

Such A Great Combination And A Perfect Tribute For 40 Years

Posted by Paul | January 16, 2017 at 10:02 AM ET |

I have never been to San Diego Comic Con to date, but I was wondering if Mark Hamill might attend this year so I can get this photo of Luke Skywalker and Landspeeder signed. Does anyone have some inside scoop on this? Please email me if so.

Every Item From TBS [P1] And TBS [P2] Archived In RDRs/VGs

Posted by Paul | January 15, 2017 at 09:07 AM ET |

It took some time to reach the end, but we have officially completed archiving every last product from the The Black Series [Phase I] and The Black Series [Phase II] in our RDRs, VGs, and/or both. And to "celebrate" we've updated the archival pages and many of the reviews. The Black Series [Phase I] released a total of 44 individually released items (45 if that AT-RT Driver (#30) figure ever gets released) and The Black Series [Phase II] released a total of 46 packaged items. Both phases were released from 2013 through 2015 (save for that 2016 release of the Republic Trooper) and featured the last few 3.75" basic figures that weren't retailer exclusives. Visual Guides can be found at these links: TBS [P1] and TBS [P2]. Banners below will take you to the Research Droids Reviews.

Remember the great Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] debacle?

Review: Cantina Showdown - TBS [P2] - Toys R Us Exclusive

Posted by Paul | January 13, 2017 at 12:25 AM ET |

Hasbro thought a great idea for an exclusive would be the Cantina Showdown when single-packed Han Solo and Greedo figures were swarming the shelves. Blown out for less than retail cost and now commanding double the MSRP on eBay, see why this was about the worst choice for a retailer exclusive we have ever seen in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi [ROTS] - TBS [P2] - Six Inch Figure (#08)

Posted by Paul | January 12, 2017 at 12:50 AM ET |

Hasbro picked THE SINGLE WORST figure to carry-forward into The Black Series [Phase II] line look. (God forbid the Star Wars line goes without an Episode III Obi-Wan Kenobi for five seconds.) Both this figure and the original release even continue to clog some pegs today. Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Out of the blue it arrived at retail. But now all of us can get the Imperial AT-ST Walker And Imperial AT-ST Driver in The Black Series [Phase III] line.

Review: Yoda - TBS [P2] - #06

Posted by Paul | January 10, 2017 at 12:55 AM ET |

This Yoda figure was released twice: once in The Black Series [Phase I] lineup and then once again in The Black Series [Phase II] lineup. It disappointed both times sadly, but the second release has significantly better paint operations. See how this one is better in our Research Droids Reviews today.

The review is coming Wednesday, but you can check out the "Walmart exclusive" Imperial AT-ST Walker And Imperial AT-ST Driver Photo Gallery and Collector Notes right now in our Research Droids Reviews! It's not for sale online yet, but thanks to JTA reader Mark for locating the listing page on Walmart.com so you can keep an eye on it.

            

Remember these things? They were called Titanium Series Die Cast Metal figures and they were surprisingly popular during the 30 (77-07) era. Anyway, you might want to familiarize yourself with them again. They are easily found on the aftermarket, except for the super-rare Jango Fett (of which VERY FEW ever made it out). These figures make nice collectibles, no? There are so many characters Hasbro could do, like Han Solo and Obi-Wan Kenobi for example. I sure "hope" one day these might be a reality again.

Super Freaky TBS6 Variants Found At Local Walmart

Visual Guide Update - Darth Vader [Rogue One] - Hot Toys

Posted by Chuck | January 09, 2017 at 06:28 PM ET |

Our next addition to the Hot Toys Visual Guide features Rogue One's Darth Vader (MMS388). Click below for a detailed look at the latest sixth scale version of Darth Vader. One small assembly note... eagle-eyed collectors will notice that Hot Toys mistakenly packaged this version of Darth Vader with his tunic under his chest armor when it should be over the armor as it appears in both Rogue One and A New Hope. Luckily, this is fairly easy to correct.
