Battle Droid

If there ever was a character or from The Phantom Menace nobody really wanted another figure made of, it must be the lowly Trade Federation Battle Droid. I know that the first wave of 2012 was an assortment designed to appeal to the people who would go and watch the 3D release of the movie, but it still makes little sense to have included this figure in the mix

Marauder Money Case

This is a quick one. I wanted to share another Marauder item. This one is part of their “Mission Cases” line, the Currency case. It’s exactly what you would think it is. A small opening and closing brief case with money in it. The money is printed on a small piece of card stock and […]

The Star Wars Expanded Universe can be so many things for different people. For some, it is a valid continuation of the exploits of their heroes outside the frame of the movies; while others think it’s just thinly veiled attempt to keep milking the same intellectual property.

Unlike the rest of the alien species that conform the Covenant in the Halo Universe, the Kig-yar (the species Jackals and Skirmishers belong to) are different in the sense that they didn’t join the fight against Humanity because of their religious beliefs, but rather because they were at first bullied into the conflict and afterwards because they found it to be very profitable.

Ratts Tyerell & Pit Droid

Back when Episode I was released, a lot of praise was heaped upon the pod racing scenes in Tatooine but I wasn’t that much impressed, to be honest. The extended scenes included for the latest releases of the film in DVD and BR formats actually add to the rhythm of the whole sequence, but it kind of took about 13 years for them to tweak it.

Tomar-Re (Battle Shifters)

Well, after seeing them on clearance for a few weeks, I eventually got to buy one of the “Deluxe” figures from Mattel’s Green Lantern 4-inch action figure line. Only they are not really Deluxe, neither in name nor value. This version of Tomar-Re was released as part of the Battle Shifters sub-line. In this format, you get one action figure and one big transforming accessory.

Airtight

  I wasn’t a huge fan of the Airtight back in the day. But then again, it was different world. If anything, his role has become more relevant in a world where bio terrorism seems much more likely that nuclear Armageddon. Appearance: Airtight probably had the fewest alterations for his Renegades modernization. It makes sense, safety […]

Mr. Fantastic (Mega Bloks)

I’ve said it before, I’m not a huge Fantastic Four fan. I wasn’t trying to get Mr. Fantastic, but the I couldn’t figure out what the gun thing was in the darn package. Appearance: I’m sure this is based on a more modern comic book appearance that the ones I’m familiar with. Essentially, except for […]

Queen Amidala

Well, it’s another year, and once again, Hasbro treats us to another rendition of Padmé Amidala in the 2012 Star Wars Vintage Collection, right in time to promote the 3D launch of The Phantom Menace in 3D. This time it is Padmé as Queen Amidala (VC84), dressed in the black gown she wore after her plea to the

Green Man

Well, one of the reasons that pulled me towards Mattel’s Green Lantern 4-inch figures was the varied alien characters in the initial assortments. One thing I’ve learned after years of collecting several 1/18-scale figures is that you can never have too many aliens (or monsters), and once these figures started getting on clearance, I didn’t hesitate to pick up some of them.

Zombie Viper

With the current zombie trend in a variety of media, a zombie GI Joe figure was probably inevitable. That he ends up on the Cobra side of the fence, isn’t a huge stretch. Following with a theme of bio-terrorism in the 30th Anniversary line, the Zombie Viper fills a role that a large terrorist would […]
