Star Wars Action News - Episode 175

Posted by Chuck | December 30, 2008 at 03:03 PM EDT |

    What was the biggest event for Star Wars in 2008? Many would say The Clone Wars movie, or TV series. Others would say The Force Unleashed, or the continuation of the Expanded Universe in Legacy of the Force soon to be continued in Fate of the Jedi. For collectors, it might be the pre-order of eFX Collectibles' X-Wing, the end of the Master Replicas line, or the BMF. Maybe it was Midnight Madness; maybe it was San Diego Comic Con...

This week we ask the author himself that question, and several others on the genesis of this amazing set. Plus we get more information about Clone Wars series DVD releases, Star Wars Celebration 5, and just where Steve puts all that stuff he buys.

Changed Collecting Has... The Collectorate News Update

Posted by Chuck | December 18, 2008 at 08:52 PM EDT |

THE COLLECTORATE NEWSFEED

Clutter, clutter everywhere! That’s usually what happens when an online retail site wants to show you all the pre-orders and new products on the front page.

With the input and help of our Board of Collectors, we came up with a slightly different approach to this challenge…

We decided to create a multi-image slide show presentation that will show upcoming products and new arrivals.
Each picture will be a direct link to that product page or news article.
You can control the show or let it move on its own.

Check out a sample of THE COLLECTORATE NEWSFEED on our splash page.

Stormtrooper Commander - Lowest Edition Size Yet!

Posted by Paul | December 04, 2008 at 11:08 PM EDT |

    It looks as if the 12" Stormtrooper Commander from Sideshow Collectibles will be more difficult to ensure as part of your collection than the Hasbro GameStop exclusive action figure. The figure's edition size has been set at a mere 1500 pieces for the regular edition and 1000 pieces for the Sideshow Collectibles exclusive version. Has anyone else out there noticed that these edition sizes keep getting smaller and smaller? The regular version is still available for pre-order now but it won't last long especially with a limit of five (5) per customer. Order at least one before they are history!

TLC Breha Organa Variation - Tan Is In!

Posted by Paul | December 04, 2008 at 12:08 PM EDT |

    A Breha Organa (BD No. 27) variation has been found. Hasbro has apparently decided that the queen is more suited for a tan than a pasty white complexion. Breha now sports a new and more accurate flesh color on her face and her hands have been molded in the new color to match. Also worth noting is her headband which is now painted in a darker mustard yellow color. This sample was found at WAL*MART this morning.  

Hasbro has certainly been keeping us thoroughly entertained with production changes!
