Remember the great Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] debacle? Well, we're continuing to check out some of the figures that helped create the worst bottle-necking of Star Wars figures of all time.

Review: Cantina Showdown - TBS [P2] - Toys R Us Exclusive

Posted by Paul | January 13, 2017 at 12:25 AM ET |

Hasbro thought a great idea for an exclusive would be the Cantina Showdown when single-packed Han Solo and Greedo figures were swarming the shelves. Blown out for less than retail cost and now commanding double the MSRP on eBay, see why this was about the worst choice for a retailer exclusive we have ever seen in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi [ROTS] - TBS [P2] - Six Inch Figure (#08)

Posted by Paul | January 12, 2017 at 12:50 AM ET |

Hasbro picked THE SINGLE WORST figure to carry-forward into The Black Series [Phase II] line look. (God forbid the Star Wars line goes without an Episode III Obi-Wan Kenobi for five seconds.) Both this figure and the original release even continue to clog some pegs today. Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: Yoda - TBS [P2] - #06

Posted by Paul | January 10, 2017 at 12:55 AM ET |

This Yoda figure was released twice: once in The Black Series [Phase I] lineup and then once again in The Black Series [Phase II] lineup. It disappointed both times sadly, but the second release has significantly better paint operations. See how this one is better in our Research Droids Reviews today.
