This last week or so I took advantage of some sales on Dorksidetoys.com. Six TVC figures made their way to my house. I also had a frustrating Target experience, and I need to vent! Something for everyone today… Click here to read about it.
Hello Toy Runners, I’m pleased to join you again to discuss our recent toy finds! I took advantage of Migs Mayfield being on clearance at Target to build up my mudtrooper army. I also got the 332nd Clone Troopers from Amazon, and I took the opportunity to revisit my Captain Vaughn custom. Check it out!
Now that I live farther from the city I don’t get to go toy hunting nearly as often. I stop at Target near my employer, but that is about it. This last Saturday we went out as a family, and we stopped at a couple stores that have collectible sections. I got two new figures in the mail that I feel like I had been waiting on forever… And lastly I finished a custom of a character from the Visions anime. Take a look by clicking here.
I’ve continued to work on customs and build my collection with new releases over the last few weeks. There are two troopers I finished customs of, and both are gaping holes in the ranks of Star Wars soldiers. I’m sure we’ll get one of them soon, and the other… we’ll see. Take a look at these customs and let me know if you think figures like them should make their way into Hasbro’s release schedule.
Welcome, readers, to this week’s Toy Run Tuesday. I’ve been creating more work for myself lately by accumulating new parts for customs and not finishing them… But at least that means I have some nice new parts to share with you! I also received an order from Tunghori’s new website. Check it out by clicking here!
This last weekend I was able to attend two different toy shows, and an additional collectible store in Phoenix. Since I moved, I haven’t been able to go to collector stops near as often as I used to because I live so far away, so it was a real treat being able to attend this weekend. Check out my small haul after the jump!
I just wanted to make a special post about the wonderful work done by Krazy D’s Kustoms. A few weeks ago I received an item from them, and finally had a chance to put it together. Click here for some photos of my new toys!
Hello toy runners! Thanks for coming back to another Toy Run Tuesday. I have a figure and a ship to share with you this week, so please click through for some photos! Once you’ve taken a look at my finds, please share yours in the comments!
Welcome back, toy runners! It’s our fourth week and I’ve got some really good finds I wanted to share with you. SDCC was rather a bust for new reveals, but did you get any of the exclusives? I didn’t get any of the current ones, but I did find an older SDCC exclusive this week. Post some pictures of your recent finds in the comments here!
Walmart is not fooling around today with their exclusives. The Mimban Stormtrooper (TVC) is in stock now!
All these Black Series Mudtroopers showing up at Target have me like… Full Story
I am in the process of building a Mimban Lieutenant costume, and am therefore in a dedicated mudtrooper builders group on Facebook. One of the members recently finished their costume and was approved by the 501st. As a final touch for his build, he commissioned a custom cardback through Karbonite Kustoms using himself as the image. Not only would it be awesome to have a Kenner card of myself, it’s basically the coolest trooper around. When I saw this I was stunned. Hasbro, please. Give us this figure ASAP! Special thanks to Ricky R. and Karbonite Kustoms for sharing the images!
A thanks to Disqus commenter TopMonkey for this heads up. We initially reviewed Han, Lando, and Qi’ra from Solo back in April. So far these figures have not sold through everywhere, and their Amazon values attest to their diminished popularity. So, in an attempt to reignite some interest, Hasbro sent GeekTyrant some promo figures for review. The reviewer is a collector himself, so he has some valuable thoughts regarding these figures… Full Story
Hi Hasbro, here are some figures that I want made. Just so there is no question as to what figures people want made, I thought posting these photos may be of assistance. Readers, do you agree? Let us know in the comments!
I found this image floating on Facebook. It was sourced from another group entirely so as of yet I don’t have the original source for this image. As a big fan of the Star Wars Nerf line (not added to ships…) I think this is a great set. If you look a little closer you may find something else of interest to TVC collectors. A little more to the left… a little more…
To be honest, Battle Packs were hit or miss. Ones like the Mandalorian Warrior pack (please send more Mandos) were much more popular than ones like the Battle of Geonosis. Would a few battle packs of articulated figures be a bad thing? At least with these characters, I think a couple battle packs might do us some good. More…
Solo was a great film. It was a fun movie to watch. One thing that it did very well was the dense and diverse population of each planet and cantina visited throughout the story. Click through to see how we think Hasbro should take advantage of this new treasure-trove of characters in The Vintage Collection…
A few days ago, I posted about how Tam Posla would be making a cameo appearance in Solo. Apparently there is another character that is in Rogue One making a background appearance. Or at least it looks the same… Click through to check it out for yourself.
If you’ve been having trouble locating the newest Solo toys at your closest TARGET brick and mortar, you may not be surprised to learn that when given the DPCI a TARGET employee informed me that the Solo product launch was dated for a 4/15 reset, which is after the 4/13 street date. Patience is the way of the Jedi, friends, and we may have to wait a couple days yet…
Amidst the toy reveal commotion, here is a bit of movie news. I was looking at images from the most recent Solo trailer and spotted a white and grey helmet in the background… Click through to find out more!
The brand new Solo: A Star Wars Story Force Link 2.0 Enfys Nest swoop bike is in stock now! Hurry you can get it a whole day early!
