BREAKING NEWS! We now have a closer look at the pack-in figures to the Sandcrawler Playset. Both figures look minimally articulated, but I wonder if that GONK Droid is the first Build A Droid figure of this particular droid type. Imagine a future Droid Factory Lars’ Homestead GONK Droid because you know Hasbro is never going to give it to us.

NEW FIGURES! The Black Series [Phase III] Stormtrooper (With Blast Accessories) provides a strong example of the disconnect between Hasbro and the adult collecting community and how distribution is wholly in the gutter. It truly is. With retail dying a grim death, is there any hope in sight for American collectors with this figure? We don’t know. But maybe you won’t care.

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!

I have an exclusive sneak peek of wave 17 (wave 28) of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line! Han Solo (Bespin) is about what we all expected. He looks great, but there is nothing extraordinary about him. Samples will vary from one another, so be sure to find one with good eyes. Our sample looks good, but we think he could look a tad better. He is loaded with articulation and favors Harrison Ford very much. The Rebel Trooper is awesome, but some things about him bug us. Firstly, I don’t like the name. This character is a Rebel Fleet Trooper. Also, this sculpt is unequivocally Lieutenant Pello Scrambas, so you can’t army build this guy. (Hasbro – please make alternate head sculpts for this body!) Collectors will be thrilled to know that Hasbro added “butterfly” joints to the shoulders which make it possible for him to cross his arms and reach his arms behind his back. Also, I plead ignorance. I don’t know if he comes with the “Death Star plans” or some type of “communicator.” I am especially partial to Tobias Beckett. It looks just like Woody Harrelson, and the detail is fantastic. His costume is perfection and it’s one of the greatest figures based on Solo: A Star Wars Story Hasbro has produced to date. Check out these three new figures in our Research Droids Reviews RIGHT NOW! Full reviews are coming soon!!
