Review: Nikto Guard - TCW - TRU Exclusive

Posted by Paul | October 01, 2010 at 12:03 AM EDT |

Research Droids Reviews looks at a figure that should have come out in April 2009 but instead has just been released as a Toys R Us exclusive. But will it succeed at retail, especially at $9.99-$10.99 a pop? We don't think so.... Click the banner below for the direct link to the review!

Jabba The Hutt: A Blast From The Past - A Must See!

Posted by Paul | September 18, 2010 at 10:45 PM EDT |

This year is certainly turning out to be the year of The Vintage Collection, but it also has had a big focus on Jabba The Hutt, specifically Jabba's Throne (our Research Droids Review of it is found here) which is "right now" a very difficult exclusive to locate. While you wait for the 2010 Jabba to become more readily available, check out a cool vintage collecting blog (Action Figure Toys) that we came across with a rich amount of detail on many original Kenner vintage items. While perusing we discovered a cool entry on a Sears' exclusive Jabba The Hutt in a white box. You probably already know about the white box variation by now, but click through to check out the original Sears catalogue page that advertised this item as well as the bizarre group of figures that made it into the photo shoot! We could be having a false memory right now, but we swear we've read this text before as kids a long time ago....

Mamma Mia! ABBA And Star Wars Action Figures?

Posted by Paul | September 17, 2010 at 10:04 AM EDT |

Never in a million years did we ever expect to see a YouTube video blending two of the biggest yet unrelated things from the 70s together. VideoViper takes a cover version of former pop super group ABBA's "Super Trouper" (definitely not as good as the original) and mixes it with Star Wars action figures to make "Super Trooper" an action figure music video. If you like kitsch, Star Wars and just a cool tune that was hit way before the Broadway show Mamma Mia! made it bigger, then be sure to check it out. And please don't make us feel any older by asking who ABBA is. This is corny, but humorous folks.

JTA Speaks With Hasbro On Damaged Boba Fetts!

Posted by Paul | September 14, 2010 at 03:16 PM EDT |

JTA spoke to Hasbro today and they are asserting that The Vintage Collection mail-away rocket-firing Boba Fett mail-away figures are indeed leaving their fulfillment center warehouses in perfect condition. They also explained that they cannot be held responsible for what the USPS has done to the packaging. Hasbro will only replace figures if and only if the actual figure is defective in some way. (Maybe Hasbro needs to find another shipping vendor.) Ugh! If you aren't too angry, check out our review on this piece. It's such a wonderful thing to have in your collection despite it arriving rather smashed, but then again, we are loose collectors first!

Review: [Rocket-Firing] Boba Fett - TVC - Mail-Away

Posted by Paul | September 14, 2010 at 12:05 AM EDT |

Guess what arrived on our doorstep yesterday? Research Droids Reviews is proud to present to you our first thoughts and impressions on the absolute best mail-away exclusive Hasbro has ever given us. (And it's probably one of the best action figures in general we have received from them also!) Sit back, relax and check out the modern release of an action figure so many of us wish we got back in 1979. But it's here for us to enjoy now and it's better than ever and even comes carded for the very first time! Click the banner below for the direct link to the review!

Thank The Maker For C-3PO!

Posted by Paul | September 12, 2010 at 08:52 PM EDT |

We felt compelled to apologize for our initial flippancy towards The Vintage Collection's See-Threepio (C-3PO) action figure. While we are confident about what we write in our reviews, our initial posting was a bit harsh and we wanted to "make things right" by adding some new photos and a whole new review to show our newfound affection towards this figure. The figure has grown on us tremendously and while we remain steadfast on some of our complaints with him, he continually impresses us in some powerfully wonderful ways. We suggest checking out our revised Research Droids Review and photo gallery and see if you feel the same way. (Special thanks to Mr. Curto for bringing C-3PO's bonuses to our collective attention.)

TRU To Set Up "Star Wars" Shop Soon!

Posted by Paul | September 11, 2010 at 05:59 PM EDT |

JTA has found out through our Toys R Us sources that they are launching a new Star Wars "shop" in their store on September 23rd with a (gasp!) focus on products in The Vintage Collection. While it will probably just be wave 1 and wave 2 and maybe bigger supplies of the AT-AT, it will be nice to walk into TRU and not be bombarded with tie-dyed ninja hamsters.

Review: Sandtrooper - TVC - VC14

Posted by Paul | September 11, 2010 at 12:01 AM EDT |

Did you miss the Dewback with Imperial Sandtrooper Walmart exclusive in 2009's Legacy Collection? Did you want to get your paws on that super-articulated Sandtrooper? Research Droids Reviews is here to let you know that you now have ample opportunity to get more than one, in fact, as many as you'd like to army build. But this also means that we sadly [temporarily] conclude adding new figures to our database for the time being since wave 2 of The Vintage Collection comes to a close. Sandtrooper looks absolutely splendid on the vintage card back. (Hey, November isn't that far away for the incredible forthcoming Return Of The Jedi wave should start hitting. And that is a wave of figures we cannot wait to get) Click the banner below for the direct link to the review!

Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi - TVC - VC16

Posted by Paul | September 10, 2010 at 12:20 AM EDT |

Research Droids Reviews checks out the last Revenge Of The Sith themed figure in wave 2 of The Vintage Collection and it's a figure we have seen 100 times before already. (We're exaggerating folks.) Obi-Wan Kenobi is a great figure and he has been great for five years now, but we don't think it was the best version of Episode III Obi-Wan Kenobi worthy for inclusion on a vintage-styled card back. Who knows, you may completely disagree. The revised "Shadow Of The Dark Side" Saga Legends Obi-Wan Kenobi is a much better choice in our opinion.

TVC Wave 2 Hitting TARGET Finally!

Posted by Paul | September 09, 2010 at 07:15 PM EDT |

It looks like TARGET has finally caught up with Toys R Us and Walmart for wave 2 of The Vintage Collection! It looks like the new figures were hit hard, but we did find a lowly UGH Han Solo (Echo Base Outfit). But the important news is that you have one more place to find these $2 cheaper than TRU!

Utapau Battle Packs: YES! - Execution: UGH!

Our friends at Sandtroopers.com have gotten their hands AGAIN on some upcoming Battle Packs. Please tell us Hasbro that that isn't the TSC Commander Cody in that set!? Where are the army-building regular clone troopers that should be in this set instead of another crappy Grievous? We finally get the Utapau inspired multipack that we've wanted for years and this is what we get?! UGH! Don't get us started! P.S. Does anyone else find it ironic that the inferior TSC Cody in this Battle Packs set gets the dirt/battle-damage on his legs that the TVC version should have?

TARGET and Walmart Switch Pricing Roles?

We've been receiving report that TARGET has increased the price of their Saga Legends figures to $7.99.

Review: Pre-Cyborg Grievous - TAC - No. 36

Posted by Paul | September 03, 2010 at 12:10 AM EDT |

Pre-Cyborg Grievous is an action figure we should have loved a lot more than we did. He just got rereleased in the TRU exclusive Legacy Of The Dark Side two-packs, but his imperfections still haven't been addressed. Research Droids Reviews discusses this figure in detail and talks about why he doesn't totally succeed as an action figure. Even still, he was a nice addition to the Expanded Universe wave in the 30 (77-07) line, but we think it will take one more stab at him before he can be considered definitive.

Found! TVC Wave 2 - Walmart Hooks Collectors Up Grandly!

Posted by Paul | September 02, 2010 at 08:01 AM EDT |

Found! While waiting for our local Toys R Us store to open (because we got a tip from the manager that more TVC was coming), we stopped at our local Walmart in Tullytown, PA and nearly collapsed. No less than six brand new cases of wave two of The Vintage Collection were sitting there to greet us. We found all of the Ultimate Galactic Hunt figures as well as ALL of the new figures. This is the first we heard of this wave hitting Walmart, but what a steal at $7.96 when TRU is still trying to get $9.99 each for them! Click through to check out just a portion of our find! Oh, and these will start being added to our Research Droids Reviews on Saturday morning! Check back!

Review: Darth Malak - TAC - No. 35

Posted by Paul | September 02, 2010 at 12:20 AM EDT |

Who has the nastiest flesh wound of all? Research Droids Reviews makes a case that it is conclusively Darth Malak sans lower jaw. Eeeeewwwww! But despite his mortal injury, he is a pretty cool action figure that is just slightly out of perfect range in our opinion. Will Hasbro ever perfect him? That remains elusive, but the version that is available certainly should make KOTOR fans very happy. Click the banner below for the direct link to the review!
