I have mixed feelings about the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Other than the videogames I have personally played, I consider most of it to be little more than professionally written fan-fiction and thus, easy to dismiss.

Thi-Sen (Clone Wars)

For me, one of the most interesting episodes in the second season of Clone Wars was Trespass, were we get to see new environments and more importantly, new character models developed for the CGI series.

Admiral Ackbar

You know in the last few years it seems Admiral Ackbar has been gaining in popularity. I don’t know if it’s people finally are seeing him has a brilliant strategist or Sheldon Cooper’s excellent mimicry. I’m glad for the aquatic admiral. I have to say I’ve always kind of liked Ackbar. He’s one of the […]

Generally, the Star Wars Battlepack format has been good to fans. In a box you get several figures and accessories for a cost that oftentimes is lower than what you’d pay for each individually carded figure.

In fact, there are a lot of tiny details that bother me in this figure, like the skimpy silver outfit, the pink plastic skin or the oversized cranium. Oddly, putting all of these together doesn’t immediately translate into a plastic abomination; so further analysis might be in order.

Seen only in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie from 2008 and released by Hasbro in the third wave of figures from their Clone Wars line, 4A-7 appears to be an Arakyd Industries RA7 series droid, although from the neck down the basic structure is that of a Cybot Galactica’s 3PO series protocol droid.

Plo Koon

The latest Plo Koon figure comes from the 2010 Legacy Collection, and whether or not is yet another step towards delivering the definitive version for the character is subject to some debate.

Malakili Madness

When Errex sent in his review of the new version of Malakili, I thought it would be a great chance to look back at the other versions, as well. Considering his limited screen time, it’s pretty amazing this overweight zoo keep has had three figures. Check them all out: Current Version POTF2 Version Vintage Version

Malakili (Rancor Keeper POTF2)

In the nineties, Hasbro decided that the time was right to bring Star Wars figures back to the world. In hindsight, that was probably a great decision. The original Star Wars generation had reached an age where they had disposable income and were feeling nostalgic for their childhood. At this point Power of the Force […]

Rancor Keeper (Kenner)

Ironically, Kenner’s Star Wars figures are what started my figure collection back when I was wee Nerd. However, I’ve never reviewed a vintage figure on the site. I’ve review other vintage stuff, but never a Kenner 3 3/4″ figure. To continue the Rancor Keeper theme, I decided he’d be the first. You all know him. […]

Jawa & Security Droid

Frequent visitors to the site will know that I have a soft spot for Jawas. I think the pint sized scavengers just captured my imagination when I was a kid and didn’t let go. Frequent readers will also know that I like figures that are able to sit. With this most recent Jawa release we […]

Ewok 2 Pack (Paploo & Nho’Apakk)

It amazes he me how many people online profess hatred for the Ewoks in “Return of the Jedi.” You would think if that many folks despised them, they would be peg warming every time they released a new one.  But they don’t. People snag the little critters when they see them. I’ve said it before, […]

Princess Leia (Jabba’s Prisoner)

Back in 1997, when the first “Slave Girl” or “Dancing Girl” Leia came out, it was a figure that I thought would never get made. However, this year’s “Legacy” series from Hasbro has brought another new version of this figure. Obviously, this version of Leia is popular with the fanboys. It’s tough as nails Princess […]
