Review: Fode And Beed (Podrace Announcers) - POTJ - Basic

Posted by Paul | August 29, 2014 at 12:35 AM EDT |

A good figure, but a terribly annoying character, or do we saying annoying "characters"? The Fode And Beed (Podrace Announcers) figure is a tremendous update to the 2-Headed Announcer pack-in figure from the Episode I line, but will you still want it for your own collection?

UPDATE: Deluxe-Sized Mission Series Set Listing Removed!

Posted by Paul | August 28, 2014 at 09:43 PM EDT |

Toys R Us Canada online has listed something called Jedi Reveal Mission Series Pack. While it could be something we have already seen before, we're inclined to say "no" because it retails for $19.99 which makes us believe it's a format outside of the standard Mission Series line. Time will obviously reveal all, but take a look at more of the details of what might be coming. (Product pictures not shown.) Special thanks to JTA reader Ken for the alert.

UPDATE: Interesting! This listing has been removed from Canada's TRU.com website!

Review: Luke Skywalker's X-wing - TSC - Toys R Us Exclusive

Posted by Paul | August 26, 2014 at 12:35 AM EDT |

Although an admirable effort, the 2002 Star Wars "Saga" Luke Skywalker's X-wing Fighter just wasn't up to snuff. Thankfully, Hasbro made all of their ills right with the stunning 2006 The Saga Collection Luke Skywalker's X-wing, which not only included an incredible update to the vehicle complete with removable swamp moss, the set also contained a nearly all-new Luke Skywalker figure in addition to a Ralph McQuarrie inspired Dragonsnake. And the kicker? It only set you back $45 back in the day. We HOPE you have this stunning set already, but if you don't, learn about it now with a cool 60+ image gallery and more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Crazy The Black Series Store Arrivals Continue

Posted by Paul | August 25, 2014 at 10:06 PM EDT |

We're still getting multiple reports of wave for of The Black Series arriving at TAGET in dribs and drabs. JTA reader Commander Joe276 lets us know that he found two Bastila Shans (images can be seen by clicking through) and then we also received photographic evidence from Darth Chuck that more figures are arriving piecemeal at his TARGET ins Florida as well. What a weird retail state.

With special thanks to JTA reader Commander Joe276 for alerting us, The Black Series 6-inch Stormtrooper is in stock at HasbroToyShop.com as of this post. I wonder if the one per lifetime limit is still in effect?
