Toy Fair 2013 - Tamashii Booth

Posted by Paul | February 11, 2013 at 08:02 PM EDT |

The Tamashii company has released what may be the best C-3PO figure on the market to date. Before you scoff at the $400 price tag, let us tell you that we held this piece in our hands and were astounded with the scale, likeness and quality of the piece. Not only is C-3PO cast from real metal and heavy in weight, he also comes with light-up eyes, real abdomen wiring and functioning arm pistons and other gears. It's probably the most amazing C-3PO 12" scaled high-end figure to date. It's equivalent to the quality of the life-size figure from Sideshow Collectibles, but smaller and a fraction of the price. Do yourself a favor and check C-3PO out from head to toe!

Special Report: Mark goes to... Tatooine!

Posted by Joris | April 17, 2011 at 04:45 AM EDT |

This week we’re kicking off a three-part article series that we have baptised the “Mark goes to” reports in our Star Wars Experience section.

The “Mark goes to” articles will put the spotlight on a trend that has become increasingly popular over the last few years: Star Wars tourism!

And indeed, fans from all over the world undertake real pilgrimages to the film locations of our most favorite film epos only to get a bit nearer to that galaxy far, far away.

Such travels are best done properly prepared and that’s where Mark, to many also known as “the Autograph Bounty Hunter” comes in: he provides us with indispensable tips and tricks, do’s and don’t’s  to make your trip a huge success.

This week Mark goes to ... Tatooine, where you can escape the heat in grubby Cantina’s and be all the ‘Outlander’ you like. Are you warmly welcomed on the desert planet? Hit the link, hyper-travel to Tatooine and find out ...
