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.

Luke Skywalker And Landspeeder

Starting today, we are taking our next break from the Power Of The Jedi line, but worry not as we will return to it again in May. In the meantime, let's revisit looking at some more of the quality products released in the Star Wars "Saga" line (as well as a few other surprises). First up, we check out Luke Skywalker's X-wing Fighter, another awesome Toys R Us exclusive with a unique R2-D2 pack-in figure and awesome accessories. It's all in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: B-wing Fighter - POTJ - TARGET Exclusive

Posted by Paul | April 15, 2014 at 12:55 AM EDT |

Even though we got this vehicle in The Vintage Collection packaging, the 2001 POTJ B-wing Fighter, a TARGET exclusive, has the best paint job by far.

Review: TIE Bomber - POTJ - Walmart Exclusive

Posted by Paul | April 13, 2014 at 12:02 AM EDT |

Arguably, the greatest release of 2002 was the Walmart exclusive TIE Bomber. The pack-in figure was a joke, but Hasbro made an all-new sculpt to a long-awaited vehicle that never was made in the vintage Kenner era. Although released multiple times since, see the very first version of this iconic vehicle as we continue to look at some of the best exclusive vehicles, specifically in the Power Of The Jedi line, in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: Luke Skywalker's Snowspeeder - POTJ - Walmart Exclusive

Posted by Paul | April 12, 2014 at 12:01 AM EDT |

Many of us have been discontent with what Hasbro is providing in the collectors' market currently. But when you look at an item like Luke Skywalker's Snowspeeder, a tremendous exclusive from 2002's Power Of The Jedi line, you almost have to reexamine why you would be complaining now when great things like this have already been released in the past. Before you become defensive, come with us as we look at some of the best exclusive vehicles, specifically in the Power Of The Jedi line, in our Research Droids Reviews beginning today.

Review: Chewbacca (Dejarik Champion) - POTJ

Posted by Paul | April 11, 2014 at 01:25 AM EDT |

If you think Chewbacca (Dejarik Champion) looks like a POTF2 leftover, you wouldn't be more correct. Originally planned for the Comm Tech line, plans were shelved as interest in Episode I began waning before it was expected. Once the Power Of The Jedi line was realized, he was one of the first candidates for release in the new line. She why he's an appreciated figure, but far from a good figure in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: Han Solo (Death Star Escape) - POTJ

Posted by Paul | April 10, 2014 at 01:50 AM EDT |

It's hard making the same old Star Wars characters fresh in the basic action figure line, but Hasbro was successful because they actually looked for subtle differences in costumes and then worked them into new versions. Han Solo (Death Star Escape) might seem like the same old Han Solo action figure, but this version comes wearing a Stormtrooper belt.

Review: BoShek - POTJ

Posted by Paul | April 09, 2014 at 07:42 AM EDT |

Review: Bespin Guard (Cloud City Security) - POTJ

Posted by Paul | April 08, 2014 at 02:05 AM EDT |

Review: Lando Calrissian (Bespin Escape) - POTJ

Posted by Paul | April 07, 2014 at 01:20 AM EDT |

A fantastic figure released in 2001 was Lando Calrissian (Bespin Escape). Hasbro ensured that they got the sculpt right and decided to forgo super-articulation. With a soft-goods cape that likely will NEVER be done better, see why this is one version of the old 'smoothy' that you'll definitely want to secure for your collection.

Posted by Paul | April 06, 2014 at 01:15 AM EDT |

Review: Han Solo (Bespin Capture) - POTJ

Posted by Paul | April 05, 2014 at 12:06 AM EDT |

The very first basic figure to receive two ball-jointed shoulders was 2001's Power Of The Jedi Han Solo (Bespin Capture). Certainly not perfect, it was a tremedous update to the 1997 POTF2 figure.

Review: Luke Skywalker (In Echo Base Bacta Tank) - POTJ - Deluxe

Posted by Paul | April 04, 2014 at 01:05 AM EDT |

In 2001, Hasbro created an awesome "playset" and worked it into the Deluxe format. The Luke Skywalker (In Echo Base Bacta Tank) not only gave collectors an all-new Luke action figure in his medical Depends, but it also gave us the very desired bacta tank and a few other environmental pieces and cool features as well.

Review: Jabba The Hutt (Jabba's Palace) - SW [S - P3] - Ultra

Posted by Paul | March 31, 2014 at 01:40 AM EDT |

In many ways, the Star Wars "Saga" Jabba The Hutt (Jabba's Palace) Ultra figure is better than the 2010 Star Wars [Shadow Of The Dark Side] release. We are thoroughly impressed with this 2004 version's paint job and upper body sculpt and we don't think Hasbro has bettered it to date. Although based on 1999's Episode I Jabba Glob toy, many collectors don't even realize that this version has significant all-new parts.
