Review: TIE Fighter - TSC - Toys R Us Exclusive

There’s a strong possibility that you don’t know The Saga Collection TIE Fighter Toys R Us exclusive exists. Or if you do know about it, you might think it’s just a straight repack of the one released the year before it. You”d be wrong on both accounts. Did you also know it had a concurrent variation? This blink-and-you-miss-it Toys R Us exclusive is an incredible release thanks to its stunning paint job and beautiful packaging. Learn more about it in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Galaxy Of Adventures Rewrites Star Wars History

Today I would like to talk about the latest Galaxy Of Adventures short that features Leia. So far, the shorts used audio snippets from the original trilogy movies and more or less faithfully recreated the scenes from the movie using animation. For the latest Leia episode Lucasfilm did something different though, and I feel we should discuss it and what it means for both official canon and the overall franchise going forward. Click through for more details!

OK, let’s get this party started! The reviews are coming soon, but you can check out crisp images of The Black Series Archives wave 1 figures right now in our RDRs. Most importantly, we have comparison pictures for each figure so you can decide which version of the figure looks better. Here is a quick rundown: Luke Skywalker is better, but not perfect. For one reason or another, the photorealistic paint job looks amateur at best, almost as if it’s a trial run. He doesn’t come with a beautiful application like recent figures. Boba Fett is much-improved. They finally updated his chest armor to the correct color. Amen, Hasbro! Bossk is almost identical to his first issue. But it’s nice to see him again. In all honesty, IG-88 is a significant step backward. He’s still feather-light, has too many holes in his head (that don’t need to be carried forward in the action figure), and got a pretty bad paint job this time around. What’s up with all of that gold? The reviews are coming soon, but check out everything else right now.
