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.

Sneak Peek! Red Squadron - TBS6 [P3] - Amazon Exclusive

We just received our sample of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Red Squadron three-pack of astromech droids. Forgetting that these sculpts are terribly out of scale, the set comes off as a genuinely nice effort. We have one major problem, however, R2-X2 has a white dome, NOT a silver one. This is deco basics, and we’re very disappointed Hasbro screwed this up. They did nail the deco on R5-D8 and took into consideration all of the differences that set it apart from R5-D4 (which is something they completely botched on the 3.75″ version). The battle-damaged R2-D2 looks good, but a true retooling will be required before it’s screen-accurate to the blasts he received during the Battle of Yavin. (Remember the 2008 TAC Luke Skywalker/R2-D2 Droid Factory set? That’s what Hasbro has to do to the 6″ version of R2-D2.) Aside from the figures suffering from too small of a scale, the set is costly. These three small figures will set you back over $60 with tax. Anyway, click through to check out this fun set.
