Boba Fett (Black Series)

The 6-inch version of Boba Fett released in the second wave of figures from Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series was surprisingly hard to find for me.

Slave Leia (Black Series)

I never quite got the reason Hasbro decided to make this the first version of Princess Leia to appear as part of their Star Wars Black Series 6-inch figure line.

Qui-Gon Jinn & Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi Force)

It has been rather quiet on the Star Wars collectible front lately, so I picked up this Playskool set featuring the heroes from Star Wars Episode I, Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Super Battle Droid (Clone Wars)

The Geonosian-made Super Battle Droids were something of a surprise back when Episode II came out, being tougher and more ruthless than their cheaper cousins. They were also much less memorable because they absolutely lacked any hint of a personality.

Darth Maul (Black Series)

Darth Maul was the character people was really excited about back when the Star Wars 6 inch Black Series was announced although, Was it mostly hype? Or does the figure actually merit the amount of scalping going on? Well, read for my impressions on these subjects and more.

Luke Skywalker X-Wing Pilot (Black Series)

To be honest, one of the figures I was less excited about from Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series was precisely this version of Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing pilot uniform.

Millennium Falcon Microfighter (LEGO)

When it comes to construction block toys, a good rule of thumb is that the smaller the set, the worse the coin-to pieces ratio is.

Quinlan Vos (CW36)

I never quite got Quinlan Vos. He seems derivative of so many other characters from the Star Wars Expanded Universe, but that doesn’t seem to prevent him from being made into action figures over and over.

General Grievous (Battle Damage)

Greedo (Black Series)

Well, Greedo is one of the few Star Wars characters I would buy sight, no matter neither the scale nor the maker. Hasbro was wise to include him in the second wave of 6-inch figures in their Black Series.
