Here’s our final Visual Guide update from the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary Expanded Universe The Black Series figure releases: Carnor Jax. Click below for our full Visual Guide page. Make sure to also check out our full review of this figure right here.
Wow! Look at that shimmery purple lining! We expected Carnor Jax to be the dud of the four Comics And Books figures, but it ended up being our favorite. Oh, and this IS NOT Carnor Jax. It’s Kir Kanos. Do you think Hasbro will issue a running change? (more….)
We still have new The Vintage Collection figures to check out! Let’s take a look at the $14.99 Scout Trooper Gaming Greats figure from Jedi Fallen Order. What a shame that this is our first Scout Trooper in TVC, and not on the appropriate Return Of The Jedi card. (more….)
Thank you to everyone who voted in our The Vintage Collection Fan Channel Repack Poll. We received an amazing amount of response and feedback, and we now have the results compiled. Hasbro should take these results, and compile six new case assortments based on these results. But we don’t live in a utopia. Click through for more!
5POA is never OK, but at least Hasbro did something good with the Celebrate The Force multipacks, a parting gift for collectors as they close the tooling archives on these figures forever. The Bounty Hunters set includes a new take on R5-P8 that uses the same tooling as a The Vntage Collection figure. This character first saw release in Disney’s Droid Factory line. The rest of this multipack is a waster Are you buying these sets for your collection? (more….)
We’re jumping back to The Black Series [Phase IV] for our next Visual Guide updates. Click below to check out the updated Kanan Jarrus (SWR04). You can also check out our full review of this figure right here.
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….)
We have another Visual Guide update from the all-new The Black Series [Phase IV] line, this time featuring Sabine Wren (SWR06). Click below to check out the full Visual Guide. Make sure to also stop by and check out our full review of this figure right here.
The newly-released The Black Series [Phase IV] Sabine Wren is almost like an all-new figure. Hasbro changed the paint operations on almost every part of the figure. Will you be getting the upgrade? (Psst. They finally got her skin color correct!) (more….)
We are kicking off the launch of our newest Visual Guide Section: The Black Series [Phase IV]. Click below to check out Ezra Bridger (Star Wars Rebels 03). You can also check out our full review of this figure right here.
Let’s open up a brand new category in our RDRs today! We’ll start The Black Series [Phase IV] 6″ line with the Photo Real version of Ezra Bridger. Hasbro developed a new numbering convention for the new 6″ lineup, and it’s bound to confuse everyone. Are you excited about the color-coding and organizational source focus of TBS6 [P4]? (more….)
Our next The Black Series Visual Guide update features the latest in carbonized technology. Click below to check out the Stormtrooper (Carbonized). Make sure to also check out our full review of this figure over in our review database.
So Hasbro can make a box “vac-metalized” but can’t do the same for the figure inside of it? The Black Series [Phase III] Stormtrooper (Carbonized) figure has a box that’s more silvery and shinier than itself. What’s up with that?! (more….)
Thank you for reading Research Droids Reviews: Season 12!
Do you want to know what sets the reissue of 2020’s TVC Boba Fett’s Slave I apart from the 2013 TVC Slave I (Boba Fett’s Spaceship) Amazon exclusive? A lot. We have completed a full 76-image gallery for you to peruse, updated the review and Collector Notes which outline all of the difference for you. We also kept the old gallery too. Hasbro did collectors a solid here. Check it out! By the way, we’re treating the re-release of this vehicle no differently than the TVC basic figures than also get reissued, so we’ve updated the original review from 2013 and added details separating the two releases. Leave your thoughts in the review’s comments!
