Another week, another all new episode of The Mandalorian! And while the new episode is once more a stand alone adventure it was a fun ride! Din Djarin agrees to take a passenger to some nearby planet in return for some information on the whereabouts of other Mandalorians, but what is expected to be a slow and eventless sublight speed journey becomes a lot more exciting… Click on the banner below or here for my spoiler discussion of “The Passenger”!
The Mandalorian is back! Season 2 is off to a very strong start and will provide plenty of topics to talk about! So click on the banner below or here to read my spoiler review of the season 2 opener “The Marshal”. If you saw the trailer then you know where episode 1 is set (Tatooine, which is no surprise at all after the various shots of the planet in the promos) but the trailer doesn’t tell you anything really and won’t prepare you at all for what is happening. So let’s talk about the season opener! But beware, this is spoiler territory!
As you know, Jedi Temple Archives ended the daily Research Droids Reviews column yesterday. (Thank you for all of the kind words by the way. You all made my day.) That said, we’re not retiring them “completely.” We’d like to introduce what we’re calling Research Droids Reviews: Season 12. It’s like a Research Droids Reviews 2.0 for all. After 11 years of 4,018 daily nonstop reviews, the volume will come to a noticeable slowdown. The column will no longer be daily, but we will still review new products as they get released. The format and delivery won’t change much at all. Additionally, we will also post a review of older things no more than once per week during the lulls without new releases. Thank you for reading, and I hope this announcement is good news for our readership! Join us for RDRs: Season 12! Come back later for the first review of this new season! Let’s shoot for another 25 million visits, OK?
There are only two days left for our daily Research Droids Reviews column. I put together some words for you expressing my thankfulness and my appreciation for your consistency and your dedication as readers. And I go down some lanes of memory to recapture some important moments on how this column came to be and grew. I encourage you to click through and read my thoughts. Thank you!
The Clone Wars are back! One week late I will begin to review all the new episodes here on JTA. Today I will talk about the first episode of season 7, on Tuesday or so I will talk about the second episode of season 7 and from then on I will review each new episode over the weekend.
In “The Bad Batch”, the Separatists give the Republic a hard time on the planet of Anaxes as they capture very important shipyards. Captain Rex cannot really explain why and how the Droid Army can so easily adapt to all of his plans. Thus he wants to gather some intel behind enemy lines. But he won’t do it alone, in addition to some regular clones and Captain Cody the “Bad Batch”, a very special team of very special clones, will join them. Click through for the spoiler review of “The Bad Batch”!
The latest episode of The Mandalorian, “Sanctuary”, was released earlier today. It’s another great one. Maybe not as action packed as the previous episodes, but instead we get more character development and some really cute and funny Baby Yoda moments. Chapter 4 is basically the Mandalorian version of “The Seven Samurai”, when a village asks the Mandalorian for help against bandits. You will certainly have lots of fun in the episode and Baby Yoda proves to be a scene stealer once again.

As you know, today is the 10th anniversary of our review column, and today was supposed to end the run of the daily column officially. But our Research Droids Reviews column will continue for a little while longer. Between all of the great stuff coming to celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back to the conclusion of the Skywalker saga, we feel things need to stay status quo for the time being to get everything archived as required. In the meantime, we’ll forge ahead with our 20th Anniversary of The Phantom Menace celebration. Thank you for your support!
We’re gearing up to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of The Phantom Menace JTA style!

Additionally, we’re posting a “FlashBack” CommTech review of a past basic figure, already in our database, throughout the month of May. Stay tuned for the fun, and be sure to leave your thoughts in our comments in the reviews!

You saw our recap of The Clone Wars [Blue] line yesterday. Let’s take a look at what was offered in The Clone Wars [Red] line. Now that THE CLONE WARS television show is back, we hope that these posts can inspire both Hasbro to get the creative juices flowing again and get out some of their greatest hits from years’ past in addition to tooling new characters they never got to yet (even the cancelled ones). Please click through to check out The Clone Wars [Red] line that ran from 2009 through 2010. Links for Research Droids Reviews and Visual Guides are provided. And if you don’t see the RDR button, it just means that we only have the review and not the Visual Guide to that item. Enjoy! We’re locking the comments on THIS article, so feel free to relive your memories in the actual review pages. THANK YOU!
Over the next week, we’re going to recap the outrageously wonderful The Clone Wars lines from Hasbro. It ran for an incredible five years. It started humbly, then gained momentum and reached its peak by its third year. It then went out like a lamb its last two years, sadly. It went from a mainline to a sub-line until it finally was absorbed into the general basic figure line. But now THE CLONE WARS television show is back (some of the most fabulous news out of Disney Star Wars to date)! We hope that these posts can inspire Hasbro to get the creative juices flowing again. We want to see them get out some of their greatest hits from years’ past in addition to tooling new characters they never got to yet (even the canceled ones). Based on the Rebels line, it appears that Hasbro is more than likely to go with an “animated” approach to this revived Star Wars Entertainment. It would complement the previous lines wonderfully too, but it’s also likely that articulation will take a back seat and not be a focal point. Hasbro will see this as a kids’ line when the new episodes air. Anyway, click through to check out The Clone Wars [Blue] line that ran from 2008 through 2009. We’ve provided links for Research Droids Reviews and Visual Guides below. And if you don’t see the RDR button, it just means that we only have the review and not the Visual Guide to that item. Enjoy! We’re locking the comments on THIS article, so feel free to relive your memories in the actual review pages. THANK YOU!
