Review: Battle Droid (Security) - POTJ - Basic

Posted by Paul | July 21, 2014 at 08:11 AM EDT |

The first Battle Droid after the Episode I line was POTJ's Battle Droid (Security) figure. It is a whole lot better than those Episode I figures. Learn more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: Stormtrooper - SW [DV/ROTS] - 12-Inch Figure

Posted by Paul | July 12, 2014 at 12:03 AM EDT |

The Stormtrooper 12-Inch Figure doesn't fare nearly as well as Luke Skywalker. In fact, it's quite disappointing. See why it just doesn't measure up in our Research Droids Reviews today.

OK, we hope you're sitting down. Because Paul Harrison likes a shampoo bottle that he didn't even know was released and available to purchase until a few days ago. The Luke Skywalker (as Jedi Knight) 12-Inch Figure is pretty impressive for what it is. See why we're not so eager to bash it in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Cue Mighty Mouse theme music.... "Here we come to wreck your day!" With articulation and paint operations only contrarians could love, we look at the Darth Sidious And Yoda (Senate Duel) (MS10) Mission Series set. It's a set that may have had potential if it was painted half way decently. See our assessment of it in our Research Droids Reviews today.

It's amazing how far Hasbro will go to add a PT head sculpt to an OT character. They did this twice in the Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (4 of 6) Commemorative Tin Collection set. In case you haven't noticed, because of frequent reader requests, we are running a marathon of these Commemorative Tin Collection sets, most of which were released in the 30 (77-07) line. Check out today's Research Droids Reviews entry to learn more about this particular set.

We continue to get back to basics with the 3.75" line. Because of frequent reader requests, we are running a marathon of the Commemorative Tin Collection sets, most of which were released in the 30 (77-07) line.
