Sneak Peek! Red Squadron - TBS6 [P3] - Amazon Exclusive

We just received our sample of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Red Squadron three-pack of astromech droids. Forgetting that these sculpts are terribly out of scale, the set comes off as a genuinely nice effort. We have one major problem, however, R2-X2 has a white dome, NOT a silver one. This is deco basics, and we’re very disappointed Hasbro screwed this up. They did nail the deco on R5-D8 and took into consideration all of the differences that set it apart from R5-D4 (which is something they completely botched on the 3.75″ version). The battle-damaged R2-D2 looks good, but a true retooling will be required before it’s screen-accurate to the blasts he received during the Battle of Yavin. (Remember the 2008 TAC Luke Skywalker/R2-D2 Droid Factory set? That’s what Hasbro has to do to the 6″ version of R2-D2.) Aside from the figures suffering from too small of a scale, the set is costly. These three small figures will set you back over $60 with tax. Anyway, click through to check out this fun set.

New loose images of The Vintage Collection Imperial TIE Fighter have surfaced on social media and we’re disappointed to report that the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot is the same old 2008 The Legacy Collection Evolutions sculpt. Specifically, it looks like the Lieutenant Oxixio figure from 2011’s SW [SOTDS] Battle Over Endor (1 of 2) set. Check out the gallery of new images on our Facebook page! Special thanks to JTA reader Matthew C. for the news!

Review: Death Squad Commander - SW - Vintage Kenner

We’ve finally reached the final figure from the Star Wars 12-Back series! Let’s check out the Death Squad Commander. He is a character that isn’t too screen-accurate, but not too many of us cared. He also experienced a significant name change before the end of the Kenner line. Check out this classic figure for which we STILL don’t have a modern Hasbro counterpart for and hope comes in The Vintage Collection soon!
