Clone Trooper Deluxe (212th Attack Battalion)

Listen up readers from the UK! We have just received word from JTA reader zx_spectrum_30 that the newlt revealed talking Star Wars figures (which range between 12" and 15" by the way) will ONLY be available at three (3) central London Disney Store locations..

Here is an experimental Research Droids Reviews entry. To date, we have never added a Hasbro 12 Inch Figure to our archives, but that changes today as we revisit the KB Toys exclusive Gamorrean Guard. If we get a good response, we'll keep looking at this scale from Hasbro. A great sculpt, but with a not-so-great paint job, see why we still have some affection for Hasbro's 12 Inch Gamorrean Guard even today.

Our friends at Yakface.com are releasing additional new information on the Disney Store VIP event in California. Just announced: a new scale of Disney Store exclusive TALKING articulated figures FOR $29.95 each. The scale is a bit murky at the moment, but they look closer to 12" scale. Check out the awesome Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Luke X-wing Pilot, and I don't know how you feel, but the Han Solo looks freaking fantastic. See them as well as a ton of other Disney Store exclusives right now!

   

UPDATE 1: JTA reader Johnny W.O. writes in our comments that he read these figures are 18" per a Disney-themed website. Holy moly!

UPDATE 2: It has been confirmed that these figures range from 12" to 15".

Darth Plagueis And Others Get Pulled From HTS (Wah, wah....)

Posted by Paul | April 21, 2014 at 10:30 PM EDT |

"I guess Roy isn't doing as well as they first thought." We regret to inform you that HasbroToyShop.com appears to have pulled the plug on any more future stock of the 3.75" Darth Plagueis and the 6" Boba Fett figure in The Black Series line. We honestly believe there is nothing to fear with the latter. After all, a fabulous new assortment has just been confirmed which includes another take at him. But for those that don't roll the dice, may we suggest securing that figure before it's too late. As you know, "the media is so secretive" about these sorts of things. Special thanks to vikingrobot for the alert!

Posted by Paul | April 21, 2014 at 09:08 PM EDT |

The site ActionFigureInsider.com reveals the Gentle Giant Ltd. Jumbo Vintage Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot figure. Check out the news!

Although a bit difficult to find at the time, the 2003 Star Wars "Saga" Darth Tyranus's Geonosian Speeder Bike is a a nicely tooled vehicle. The pack-in figure isn't too bad either.

Review: Anakin Skywalker's Swoop Bike - SW [S - P2] - Vehicle

Posted by Paul | April 20, 2014 at 06:44 AM EDT |

Although a bit difficult to find at the time, the 2003 Star Wars "Saga" Anakin Skywalker's Swoop Bike is a truly excellent vehicle. The pack-in figure is less than desirable, but you shouldn't shun this set because of that. See why in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: A-wing Fighter - SW [S - P1] - Target Exclusive

Posted by Paul | April 19, 2014 at 08:31 AM EDT |

The Target exclusive A-wing Fighter may not be part of the Original Trilogy, but it's still one of the most nicely decorated vehicles we have ever seen.

Walmart To Soon Carry The Black Series Six Inch Line?

Posted by Paul | April 19, 2014 at 08:25 AM EDT |

We have received some preliminary information that Walmart might be carrying The Black Series 6" line once it resets into the new blue line look. Details are unclear at the moment, but we will continue to dig into this for further confirmation. If you are a Walmart employee and have more details to add to this, please contact us and let us know. Thank you.

The Toys R Us exclusive Luke Skywalker And Landspeeder set was a very exciting release, but it was met with some trepidation by collectors because of how badly it was colored. Thankfully, we all received a spot on update in The Vintage Collection, but see this sculpt's roots in our Research Droids Reviews today.
