Battle Of The 6-inch Figures!

Today I want to continue the 1/12 scale Star Wars action figure retrospective. Previously I focused on single characters. For this article I focus on characters and figures that don’t warrant an article of their own, but which have still various options available and where it makes sense to talk about what is the “best” or “ultimate” version. In this article I cover the characters Count Dooku, Mace Windu, C-3PO and R2-D2! So click through for the battle of their 6-inch action figures!

Count Dooku is very much looking forward to this battle

How can anyone possibly “celebrate the saga” with a set based on The Last Jedi? Also, Hasbro hates Rose. She’s nowhere to be found here. 5POA is never OK, but OUCH, The Resistance Celebrate The Saga multipack is EXTRA painful. Not even the Photo Real helps these monstrosities. Well, maybe a little. Regardless, you’re probably not going to want this one for any reason. Are you buying the rest of these sets for your collection? (more….)

The STAR TOURS Droid Pack set is nothing but rehashes. Many collectors don’t know that this multipack exists. Do you know about it? (more….)

In 1983, Mexico’s Lily Ledy toy company released a line of Return Of The Jedi action figures under the La Guerra De Las Galaxias: El Regreso Del Jedi line look. This range of Lily Ledy Star Wars figures is exciting for two specific reasons. Firstly, the original 1978 versions of R2-D2 and C-3PO were released in this lineup. Secondly, for each figure, Lily Ledy chose a never-before-utilized Lucasfilm reference image of the characters, and these images were used nowhere else in the Star Wars toy line (for any other company including Kenner and Palitoy). Featured on 30-Back, the reverse of the card back features hand-drawn images of the line of 30 action figures in addition to a few other related toys, including the Millennium Falcon and Jabba the Hutt.

Today we revisit See-Threepio (C-3PO). The 1978 version See-Threepio (C-3PO) was packaged for this line, and the packaging features an exclusive image of the character. Its name is See-threepio (C-3 PO) (Ci-tri-pi-o). The reference image used features a behind-the-scenes picture from The Empire Strikes Back. Lily Ledy covered up the studio equipment with airbrushed graphics, including the fakest control panel imaginable. This Lily Ledy release is the only way to obtain this unique character image on the card art. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1978’s STAR WARS See-Threepio (C-3PO) figure HERE.

We’re done with GOLD stuff now! Aren’t you thrilled? Hasbro phoned it in with the Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker (2019) (C-3PO/R2-D2/BB-8) three-pack. It’s cool, but doesn’t have any newly added characters in it because they didn’t produce any in this scale. Regardless, It’s the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today!

Google Trends For Star Wars Characters

After the recent article about Star Wars trending on Google, I thought it might be fun to take a closer look at how various Star Wars characters are trending on Google, both old and new. The results may make some people happy, others not so much, some of the results are certainly surprising! Some spoilers: Russia loves Kylo Ren! Japan loves droids! And Jar Jar Binks is trending more on Google than Finn, Poe or Rose, even in 2019. How is any of that possible? Click through for a few comparisons between Star Wars Characters!

Yet Another Cancelled EE Item Heads to Ross

The last Ross exclusive was the Red Squadron A-wing. Are you ready for another? The once Toys R Us, turned Entertainment Earth then cancelled exclusive C-3PO and R2-D2 2-pack showed up at one of my local Ross stores in Mesa, AZ. It’s been available on Amazon for some time, but you can potentially get it for only $7 at Ross. Can we just send all the exclusives there so I can get them on the cheap? Check out our review of this nicely painted 2-pack here.

TPM20 Episode I: CommTech FlashBack: C-3PO

Early this morning, starwars.com reviewed some of the photos from Vanity Fair’s new article. Included are several wonderful behind the scenes photos from the production of the new film. I am loving Keri Russell and Richard E. Grant’s costumes. The lack of R2 and familiar aliens is rather conspicuous, though. Click through for more photos and let us know what your thoughts are in the comments!
