Well, the Endor Bunker is released and comes with a cool interpretation of Nik Sant. The verdict is still out on this playset, but it’s better than we thought. (more….)
Thank you for reading Research Droids Reviews: Season 14!
We finally have “most of” Figrin D’an And The Modal Nodes in The Vintage Collection. We won’t complain much here, but we don’t understand why they did omit a major player in the band. Is this worth the $90 it commands? (more….)

As we continue living through the unending hellish nightmare of Diseasney Star Wars, I do my best to look for whatever glimmer of hope, ray of light, or saving grace that will keep me engaged. Sadly, it doesn’t work nearly as much as it should or could. But the other day, I unintentionally channeled the Grinch in the scene where he cracked a maniacal smile, and his heart swelled. (more….)
It’s the 40th Anniversary of Return Of The Jedi, and instead of an updated Barada, the Klatooinian we get is the repacked Klatooinian Raider released three years earlier. But we’re not bitter. (more….)
It’s another beautiful release in The Vintage Collection. But will you want the Cal Kestis figure from the Jedi Survivor video game? (more….)
Wow! The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Imperial Light Cruiser) figure is pretty dang nice. You may want to buy it to replace your Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figure. With many new parts and a pure black costume, could this be the surprise figure of 2023? (more….)
Do you know how bad that headline is? I can’t believe I am conceding that, but it’s true. And it’s all Hasbro’s fault. OK, that’s a bit much and hyperbolic. But they aren’t without blame. Take a walk with me down memory lane, and see if you agree with my assessment that the Hasbro Star Wars brand is walking in a minefield with no escape plan. The lack of respect for the 40th Anniversary of the most toyetic Star Wars film should be clanging in your ears and burning your eyes that things are in complete chaos and disarray in Rhode Island and that perhaps they’re the wrong gatekeepers for Star Wars action figures. (more….)
It’s not much more than a repaint (with some new tooling), but the Artillery Stormtrooper is one of the highlights, so far, in 2023. See why you’ll want this one. (more….)
Who? Exactly. It’s 2023 and the 40th Anniversary of Return Of The Jedi, and we get ANOTHER Disney Star Wars figure, this time Vel Sartha. We reference Seinfeld in this review today. Because look at that head! (more….)
It’s 2023 and the 40th Anniversary of Return Of The Jedi, but we get a Disney Star Wars Cassian Andor figure instead. At least it’s a good figure, but do you care? (more….)

The Rebel Soldier (Echo Base Battle Gear) set disappoints us. But do you know why? (more….)
Hasbro, please don’t be fooled by all the barking and clapping seals praising every meager new toy announcement you reveal. There is a huge swelling undercurrent of frustrated longtime Star Wars collectors that are growing increasingly aggravated by your lack of vision for Return Of The Jedi’s glorious 40th anniversary. We will riot if you don’t produce at least two items below. Please produce any two of the following: Jabba The Hutt playset (um, you already have all the parts for this), Sy Snootles And The Rebo Band (sorry – 9 out of 10 man-babies agree you’ve owed us this for years now), Ewok Village playset (we need something to enhance that awful Endor Bunker), an all-new Squid Head (Tessek) figure, or Imperial Dignitary (Sim Aloo). Please don’t make us angry. You wouldn’t like us when we’re angry.
