Latest Guides And OTC Visual Guide Added

Posted by Mike | May 01, 2004 at 12:00 AM ET |

     Tonight we have updated our Visual Guides with the outline and checklist for the Original Trilogy Collection Visual Guide. While there aren't any images available as of yet for the OTC Guide, you can get an idea of what this line is going to entail when it starts to hit stores in the fall.
     Also, we have added a new feature tonight. The Latest Guides window, on the upper left hand corner, is a quick and easy way to reference all the newest figures and guides we have done. Just hover your pointer over the different buttons to see all the latest updates, and then click on that button to see the detailed image.
     Lastly, I would like to give a shout out to the Cast and Crew of Silent But Deadly 3, the funniest fan film I have ever seen. To check out the movie head on over to Many thanks to T'Bone of T'bones SWU for pointing this out to me!

Battle of Carkoon Added to Saga Visual Guides

Posted by Pete | April 20, 2004 at 09:15 PM ET |

     If it is not the end of one portion of the 2004 Saga line it is another. This time we bring to you the Toys R Us exclusive Skirmish at Carkoon 4-pack. This set includes more repacks of old peg warmers in the likes of Barada, Klaatu and Nikto Skiff Guards, the Sail Barge Cannon from the POTJ Deluxe Princess Leia and Han Solo fresh from being in cold storage for a while. You can catch it all over in the 2004 Saga Visual Guides and don't forget to stop by Alliance Collectibles to pick up the latest in Star Wars gear!




     We have discovered a packaging error on the Skirmish at Carkoon's backside. While the Sail Barge Cannon, and Han Solo were all identified correctly, identification of Klaatu, Nikto, and Barada are wrong. The Guard labeled Nikto is really Klaatu, the Guard Labeled Klaatu is really Barada, and the guard labeled Barada is really Nikto. Confused? Click on the thumbnail below for a closer look.


Ultra Ewok with Attack Glider Added to VGs

Posted by Pete | April 18, 2004 at 08:15 PM ET |

     And so we present to you the end of yet another portion of the Saga line with the addition of the Ewok with Attack Glider to the 2004 Saga Visual Guides! A welcome addition to any collection, this set is worth getting a few of to start building that Ewok army that you have always wanted! Complete with his own spear and 2 rocks to drop from his glider, this is the way a line is supposed to bow out and make way for the OTC!!
     Alliance Collectibles has all the goods, so don't forget to stop in and pick up a few Ewoks for yourself!!


Battle of Endor Wave Added to Visual Guides

Posted by Pete | April 13, 2004 at 02:20 AM ET |

     After a run of nearly 2 full years the Basic Saga line that ran from April 2002 until today has finally come to an end with the presentation of the Battle of Endor wave featuring Han Solo in his AT-ST disguise, General Madine, and General Lando Calrissian. It is a pretty good way to end a line with 209 basic figures and ease into the Original Trilogy Collection.
     Alliance Collectibles, has got plenty of this wave and many of the rest of the Saga line, so don't forget to stop by and get them while the gettin' is good!

Power of the Jedi Visual Guide Is Now Open

Posted by Mike | April 05, 2004 at 10:25 PM ET |

     Tonight, we bring yet another Visual Guide up and operational! Arguably the best Star Wars line too date, from many a collectors point of view anyway, the Power Of The Jedi line was released before the dark times of action features, and weapons made of flimsy plastic (*cough* SAGA Line *cough*). Now you can revisit this line, and view it for all it's collecting beauty. While the Guide is not yet 100% complete, we are working hard to fill in any holes we may have. To get started click HERE!

It's Time to Set Your VGs Forward!

Posted by Pete | April 04, 2004 at 02:14 PM ET |

The Star Wars Visual Guides have been updated with the addition of all the 2003 Unleashed and 2004 Unleashed figures plus we've added a good amount of the missing 2003 12" line! Stay tuned for more updates!!
