Research Droids Reviews: Season 12

Review: Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder) - TBS6 [P4] - TESB02

Review: Darth Vader - TBS6 [P4] - TESB01

As of this post, The Vintage Collection Darth Maul (VC86) figure ranks as the 22nd most-visited review in our RDRs database. Now, it’s time to revisit the figure and get that rank higher since Hasbro re-released the figure in 2020 with significant changes. Another wise repack in The Vintage Collection “2.0” lineup, Darth Maul now comes with Photo Real deco, a flatter matte paint job, and significantly revised packaging (both card art and figure placement). We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 120-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2020) featured, comparison shots, dioramas, and a breakdown of what separates the two releases in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

Review: BB Units [Red/Black] - Galaxy's Edge Trading Outpost

We finish up the BB Units for the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. They aren’t from the Disney Droid Factory line. They’re from the 5POA TFA/SW [TLJ] Two-Packs sub-lines, which means they don’t split in half or have a lot of movement or play features. It’s a disappointing development. Let’s conclude with the BB Units [Red/Black] set. (more….)

Review: BB Units [White/Purple] - Galaxy's Edge Trading Outpost

Hasbro went super-cheap on the BB Units for the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. They aren’t from the Disney Droid Factory line. They’re from the 5POA TFA/SW [TLJ] Two-Packs sub-lines, which means they don’t split in half or have a lot of movement or play features. It’s a disappointing development. We continue looking at these with the BB Units [White/Purple] set. (more….)

Review: BB Units [Blue/White] - Galaxy's Edge Trading Outpost

Hasbro went super-cheap on the BB Units for the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. They aren’t from the Disney Droid Factory line. They’re from the 5POA TFA/SW [TLJ] Two-Packs sub-lines, which means they don’t split in half or have a lot of movement or play features. What a huge disappointment. We begin looking at these with the BB Units [Blue/White] set. (more….)

The Mission Fleet Speeder Bike/The Mandalorian set comes with The Child and it’s adorable. It might be the right size for The Vintage Collection too! (more….)

There is a new line of Droid Factory action figures at TARGET via the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. This one resembles 2007’s TAC R2-KT figure. Let’s now look at the Astromech Droid Purple/White – Server] figure. Once again, why can’t Hasbro give these figures names? (more….)

There is a new line of Droid Factory action figures at TARGET via the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. How many waves will there be? Only time will tell. Let’s now look at the Astromech Droid [Red/White – Dome] figure. Why can’t Hasbro give these figures names? (more….)

Did those YouTube reviews catch everything? Did others speak honestly whether this was the right version of the Millennium Falcon to release? And what about that price? What about those pack-in figures? And what’s new here? Is this better or worse than previous efforts? The review of the Millennium Falcon (Smuggler’s Run) TARGET exclusive vehicle is ready, and we speak freely about its pros and cons. Also, this gallery is only the beginning. We will be adding a lot more images across the Original Trilogy and Sequel Trilogy as we move ahead, so stay tuned for more! (more….)

Review: Captain Cardinal - TBS6 [P3] - Galaxy's Edge Exclusive

The Captain Cardinal 6″ figure is a new character for the line. But it’s all old parts, so it disappoints a little. Are you looking for a figure that resembles a Sith Trooper? Because that’s what this figure is. (more….)

Review: Admiral Ackbar - TBS6 [P4] - ROTJ01

We should have fallen in love with Admiral Ackbar, but we didn’t. It has a near-perfect sculpt, but the articulation is wonky, and the deco is off. Hasbro brought back that awful “open mouth” feature which means no head movement again. Also, why is the head so much darker than the arms? And the waist articulation makes it difficult to pose the figure. But if you just pose the figure out of the box, you probably won’t care about the issues. (more….)

Review: Chopper (C1-10P) - TBS6 [P4] - SWR02

The Black Series [Phase IV] Chopper (C1-10P) doesn’t look all that different from the original release, but it did receive some different paint operations. See the full group shot of The Ghost crew in this review today! Have you completed your Star Wars Rebels collection yet? (more….)

Review: Hera Syndulla - TBS6 [P4] - SWR05

All we can see in the updated Hera Syndulla 6″ figure is Lynda Carter circa 1979. Oh, and the figure is excellent too. Are you upgrading all of your Star Wars Rebels collection? (more….)

Review: Clone Trooper (Kamino) - TBS6 [P4] - TCW01

Wow again! The Clone Trooper (Kamino) figure from Season 6 of The Clone Wars is another home run hit! It might have some helmet issues, but this is a HUGE improvement? (more….)

Review: Imperial Stormtrooper - TBS6 [P4] - TM02

Wow! The Imperial Stormtrooper from The Mandalorian is awesome! You’re going to want to army-build this figure! We had so much fun we posed it with a bunch of other figures and scenes. How many are you purchasing for your collection? (more….)

Review: Kanan Jarrus - TBS6 [P4] - SWR04

Here is the Photo Real-updated Kanan Jarrus, and it makes the first version look pathetic. Launching the new fourth phase of The Black Series 6″ line with a wave of Fan Channel exclusive Star Wars Rebels figures was clever. Are you repurchasing them for your collection? (more….)

The Darth Vader (Carbonized) figure is shimmery and shiny and is a gorgeous action figure. Will you add it to your collection? Do you collect the “carbonized” sub-line? (more….)

Review: Luke Skywalker (Dagobah) - TBS6 [TESB40]

Review: Imperial Snowtrooper (Hoth) - TBS6 [TESB40]

Hasbro employees can’t name the “vintage” Kenner 6″ figures correctly to save their lives, but at least the sculpts of the figures are incredible. We fell in love with the Imperial Snowtrooper (Hoth) all over again. Will you? It is part of the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back celebratory line. (more….)

Hasbro has released the 6″ Boba Fett many times in many different ways. Now Boba Fett is back to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. Will you add this to your collection? (more….)
