Here we go! Our Research Droids Review on Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) (VC144) is completely finished and ready for you to check out. Despite the circus surrounding Walmart’s stock availability and alerts, shipping statuses, multiple authorizations, and changing arrival dates, I am so happy the figure is finally released for all of us to enjoy. One of my most favorite characters in the Original Trilogy, I am thrilled that Hasbro perfected this iteration of him for The Vintage Collection’s return. Aside from the missing skiff guard blaster, I am unable to find a single complaint with the figure itself. But the figure’s packaging is a whole other bowl of wax for criticism. This review’s official launch is tomorrow, but you can get an early look at right now! Don’t forget to leave your thoughts about this long-awaited updated figure in our comments! There are a ton of comparison shots with Jabba’s palace aliens, earlier versions of this character, and diorama scenes.

Now that you have your new Lando from Walmart online, why not complete him with the MULTIPLE accessories from 2012’s TVC Lando Calrissian (Sandstorm Outfit) (VC89) figure. Sadly, it doesn’t look like this one has the skiff guard blaster either, but I can’t be 100% certain. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Mark for the alert.

Getting through “Barge Week” was arduous, but it was well worth it. Now that we got that out of the way, we wanted to redirect your attention to a set Hasbro produced over a decade ago that is essential to help complement your Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna). During 2008’s The Legacy Collection run, Hasbro released the Battle At The Sarlacc Pit Battle Packs set. It gave us our first-ever 3.75″ version of the Sarlacc Pit. It also included a repainted Skiff and five pack-in figures with the worst paint jobs we’ve ever seen. We’ve revisited the review with a massive 120-image gallery, revised text in the review and an Editor’s Note which explains that we do have a Sail Barge now. Anyway, please check out the new images, and see why you may want to consider this for your collection if you don’t have it!

It’s the ides of March, but we’ve got nothing but good news to share. Hasbro released the most-perfect item for all Star Wars collectors. It’s finally in our possessions now. And as if in almost perfect serendipity: today is our 3,583rd review. The “83” represents 1983, the year of Return Of The Jedi. And the “35” represents the number of years it took Hasbro to announce that they would make Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) in The Vintage Collection from the release of the film (2018).

Over 6,000 of you have already checked out our review, and between the New Acquisitions (currently comments) page and the RDR page, we have accumulated nearly 800 comments. If you haven’t left your two cents, be sure to do so! Also, the revised gallery now exceeds 170 images! We added new images including the Sarlacc Pit among others for you to enjoy. Please be sure to check out the updated review!

Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) is the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today! Be sure to leave your thoughts in our comments section, vote in the poll or comment about it on our Facebook page.

Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna)

There’s probably no other way to describe Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) than to use words like overwhelming and exhilarated. This long-awaited HasLab product is finally here, and it’s probably the most significant thing Hasbro has ever created in the Star Wars line. I spent today writing a long review putting my heart on my sleeve and describing every last detail of this vehicle. We have more images coming in our already-completed 140+ photo gallery (more images will follow), but everything else is done, so we’re sharing it early with you. In the meantime, enjoy both vintage Kenner and modern Hasbro figures set up in this behemoth.

We also included full images and comparison shots of Jabba The Hutt in addition to the exclusive Yak Face.

If you didn’t back this item, and you’re a 3.75″ collector, you’re going to feel the pain of missing out. Hopefully, our review and gallery will allow you to enjoy it vicariously. I spent over 19 hours between assembling, the photo shoot, the gallery preparation and the review template and write-up. So, please leave your thoughts and opinions of this vehicle in the comments. It would help make up for the lost time I can’t get back 🙂 Thanks!

Klaatu (Skiff Guard) is another phenomenal release from Hasbro. You’re going to love him just as much as Saelt-Marae. Hasbro went above and beyond working in an incredible and inordinate amount of detail in such a tiny area. He’s loaded with articulation and comes with a perfectly replicated accessory. Yes, the helmet isn’t removable, but this shouldn’t be a deal breaker for you. You’ll never have to worry about it falling off of his head. The review is coming very shortly, but the Photo Gallery and the Collector Notes are ready to browse. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Binary_Sun for the composited image in the gallery. Enjoy!

Saelt-Marae is the MOST-PERFECT action figure Hasbro has produced in a VERY LONG time. I am so blown away by this figure that I went above and beyond for you tonight. Firstly, the review is DONE. See why you’ll need MULTIPLES of this figure for your collection. Secondly, I was curious to see how Saelt-Marae compared to the many other Jabba’s Palace aliens Kenner and Hasbro produced throughout the years. So there are almost 50 ADDITIONAL images comparing Saelt-Marae (Yak Face) to other figures from Jabba’s Palace or the Battle of Carkoon. Please leave your thoughts in the comments in the review. I want to know what you think of this stunning figure! ENJOY!
