Review: Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) - TBS6 [ROTJ40]

Hasbro finally gives us a new 6-inch Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) figure, and it corrects all of the sins of the first-generation release. You’re going to love this one, folks! It also is part of The Black Series [Return Of The Jedi 40] lineup. (more….)

Review: R2-S4M - Droid Factory

The Droid Factory R2-S4M figure is an excellent and unexpected release. It corrects many issues wrong with the first one Hasbro did years ago. Oh, and the character finally gets a name other than “Jabba’s Bartender.” (more….)

Review: Bib Fortuna - TBS6 [ROTJ40]

The Black Series [Return Of The Jedi 40] Bib Fortuna figure is a marked improvement when compared to its first release. What did Hasbro do to make it look better? (more….)

We’re catching up on TVC reissues! Unfortunately, the Return Of The Jedi Nikto (Skiff Guard) figure reissue is a disappointment. Although Hasbro fixed the mismatched knee and ankle joints, they messed up the deco on the head sculpt. It is now too flat and much darker. They should have lightened this action figure’s skin color many shades instead. We took the time to summarize all the new details for you by producing an all-new 68-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2023 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this impressive figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

We’re catching up on TVC reissues! The Return Of The Jedi Kithaba (Skiff Guard) figure reissue looks stellar. The revised paint operations look excellent, and this time Hasbro remedied the mismatched elbow and ankle joints. Hasbro also worked in a half-toning wash on the arms and torso. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 68-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2023 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this impressive figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

We’re catching up on TVC reissues! The Return Of The Jedi Wooof figure reissue looks remarkable. The revised paint operations look excellent, and this time the skin is bright green. Hasbro also changed other details on the figure, including half-toning deco on the legs. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 64-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2010 version from the 2023 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this impressive figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

The Return Of The Jedi Weequay figure reissue looks fantastic. It took Hasbro long enough to get it out to collectors again, but the revised paint operations are a marked improvement. Most importantly, they fixed the mismatched ankle and knee joints. But they also changed the colors. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 60-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2023 new release in the Collector Notes. This figure is shipping now. See this excellent figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

Review: Boba Fett - TBS6 [ROTJ40] - Fan Channel Exclusive

Here we go again! It’s time to celebrate an important historical landmark in Star Wars with a pitiful array of products from Hasbro. Boba Fett isn’t bad, however. It’s just laughably expensive. (more….)

Review: Bib Fortuna - TVC - VC224

Welcome to another entry in our The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Hasbro recently committed to collectors that they will be “focusing” on characters in The Vintage Collection that fall under “The Ninety Six” banner. If you’re new to this, it means that there needs a modern counterpart for every classic Kenner figure. Between 2020 and 2021, Hasbro’s made an admirable effort by focusing on these characters. But there is more work to be done, and we’ll figure out where we are step by step. Today we assess Yak Face.
