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

In 1984, new packaging for Star Wars figures was introduced for the European market. A cost containment initiative, the new packaging sported three languages of the Return Of The Jedi logo for a “one size fits all” approach. Although a “three-logo” design was created for The Power Of The Force line (as evidenced on some ‘boxed’ toys), it wasn’t carried over to the basic figure line’s card design. They continued to use the three Return Of The Jedi logos instead. Although the word “Trilogo” is found nowhere on the packaging, the term is universally adopted by all Star Wars collectors to describe this line of figures.

We are finishing the Trilogo line up with the final 15 The Power Of The Force Kenner figures. There weren’t any coins provided with these figures. Today we revisit Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) with pop-up Lightsaber. The card art features a horizontally-flipped image of the Kenner version that is darker and features a more complete image of C-3PO. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1985’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) with pop-up Lightsaber figure HERE.

Review: Rebel Alliance - Celebrate The Saga - Amazon Exclusive

We find it rather unfortunate that the best-looking Princess Leia (Hoth) figure is the Photo Real update found in the Rebel Alliance Celebrate The Saga multipack. Luke and Han also look pretty good too. Dang it, Hasbro! (more….)

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!

It’s hard to believe how awesome 1998’s The Power Of The Force “2” [Green/Freeze Frame] Luke Skywalker’s Red Five X-wing Fighter Electronic Power F/X vehicle is and how well it holds up over 20 years later! It was the first modern “larger scale” X-wing Fighter, and it came with a dozen movie lines and sound effects in addition to beautiful light-up features. It also has some imperfections, but will you care? Relive this beauty all over again in 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.
