Destroyer Droid (Clone Wars)

Recently, I commented on how the regular Clone Wars Battle Droids tended to warm pegs at stores although, I do think that those guys will eventually sell, at the right price point, while the subject of today’s review, the Droideka, a.k.a. Destroyer Droid may be a harder sale.

Battle Droid (Clone Wars)

  If I had to name one type of character that consistently warmed pegs at everywhere I went, looking for Star Wars figures, it would be the lowly CIS Battle Droid.   These guys looked impressive in the Episode I trailer over ten years ago, but over time, they became a joke due to their […]

Dr. Evazan

Well, let me be frank here by saying that, back in the 70’s, I never really remembered how the guy that was about to pick a fight with Luke in the cantina scene looked like.

R2-D2 (Clone Wars)

One character I just don’t get figures of that often is R2-D2. It is not that I don’t like him, quite the contrary, but I just don’t see the need to get every variation Hasbro makes once I have a perfectly good version of the droid.

Kithaba

Kithaba is one of the few characters I had no awareness of back in the old Kenner days. Of course, back then, Kithaba didn’t even exist as a named character, because when Kenner produced the klatooinian skiff guard figure, they sort of meshed two characters by making the actual mold to resemble Barada, but painted the figure in Kithaba’s color scheme.

Blind Bag Star Wars Angry Birds

I’d never gave Angry Birds a second thought. I’d seen screen shots. I understood what it was. I just didn’t have interest. It didn’t help that it was way over merchandised. Including the slew of stuff that was released to coincide with the Space and Star Wars releases. What changed you may ask? My mom. […]

Starkiller

Let me start by saying that I like Star Wars. And I like video games. And, obviously, I also like action figures, so it is pretty much a given that I would have more than a passing interest in whatever exists in the intersection of those three sets.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Hasbro had given us at least a couple of versions of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi partially equipped with armor over the years, ever since the character appeared that way in the 2005 Clone Wars animated miniseries directed by Gendy Tartakovsky

Gungan Warrior

Even though as a species, Gungans have not received the same amount of toy love as, say, Ewoks, I have always considered them a pretty cool alien race, Jar Jar notwithstanding.

Shock Trooper

It’s been a long time since I bought a clone trooper or the like. I have bunch and just really don’t need more. The Shock Trooper lured me in for a couple reasons. First, he was on sale. Second, I only have two of them. Appearance: Like most clone troopers, the base armor is the […]

Weequay Skiff Guard

One of the last figures from the Star Wars Vintage Collection is one I had been waiting to get for quite some time. The vintage Kenner Weequay was one I really liked from my childhood, because it was one of those figures whose arms were made in a pose that was not just straight down.

Mandalorian Speeder

The inclusion of the Mandalorians back in the second season of the Clone Wars CGI show caused some stir because it practically tore down most of what author Karen Traviss had been writing about them ever since the publication of her Republic Commando novel.
