One thing that sticks in my craw is the incessant seal barking and clapping over Hasbro’s The Vintage Collection’s Death Star Gunner figure. You know, the one based on the character from Rogue One. SPOILER ALERT: It is TERRIBLE! But more egregious than that is the acceptance that it fills the shoes of the classic 1985 The Power Of The Force Imperial Gunner figure. Would you believe that (GASP!) many collectors find it an acceptable counterpart? I will outline why I find these people deplorable Star Wars collectors*. (more….)

There are pros and cons to the R2-SHW (Antoc Merrick’s Droid) figure. Hasbro evidently tweaked the existing tooling to make almost all parts function as they did over a decade ago. So, that’s good. But this tooling needs to be retired. The scale is too small, and collectors deserve a premium astromech droid to fill the socket of Blue Leader’s X-Wing fighter. Oh, unrelated, and for trivia buffs, today is our 4,444th RDR! Enjoy! (more….)

Review: Saw Gerrera - TBS6 [P4] - RO10

Hasbro thinks we’re all dumb. And they insult us by deeming a standard figure as a “deluxe” figure by putting it in a bigger box. We are nearing a 100% increase for these figures. However, the Saw Gerrera 6-inch figure is pretty darn lovely. (more….)
