Clone Trooper (with Space Gear) (CW02) - Hasbro - The Clone Wars [red] (2009)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi

If you think that the updated “photorealistic” technology is the only thing that sets apart the 2019 version of Luke Skywalker (Endor) (VC23) from the original 2010 release, you’re in for some surprises. Almost a full decade sets the figures apart from each other, and there is more you need to know.

Luke Skywalker (Endor) (VC23) is another one of our favorite reviews in our RDRs. We’ve also spent hours updating the Photo Gallery (which now sports 76 images and a wealth of comparison shots), updating text and new Editor’s and Collector Notes all to educate you on all the newness this figure brings to the table. Click the image below for the full experience! Make sure you’re aware of all THREE versions of this figure!

If you think that the updated “photorealistic” technology is the only thing that sets apart the 2019 version of Darth Vader (VC08) from the original 2010 release, you’re in for a rude awakening. Almost a full decade sets the figures apart from each other, and there is so much more you need to know. We’re going to let you know what you need to know.

Darth Vader (VC08) is our #1 most-visited review in our RDRs. It evidently resonates with collectors. So we spent hours updating the Photo Gallery (which now sports 72 images and comparison shots), updating text and new Editor’s and Collector Notes all to educate you on all the newness this figure brings to the table.

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.

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!

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!
