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.

Undead Geonosian

Hasbro released the Undead Geonosian I’m reviewing today late in 2010, and the figure was inspired by the Legacy Of Terror episode that aired about midway of the second season of the show.

Clone Trooper Draa

Draa was one of the Clone Troopers serving on Geonosis under Clone Commander Gree and Jedi General Luminara Unduli. Draa first appeared in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars second season episode Weapons Factory, although he was never referred to by name during the episode.

General Grievous (Battle Damage)

Even though Hasbro did release General Grievous more than once in the animated-style Clone Wars line, it was one of those characters I didn’t felt like paying the whole price for.

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.

Sandtrooper (Black Series)

A couple years ago, when someone asked me what would it take for me to stop collecting the Hasbro Star Wars action figures I stated that barring a change in scale, I would be pretty much buying them as long as they made them.

Bounty hunters are pretty much prevalent in the Star Wars universe, although up until the computer animated series we had not really see them actually doing much.

Well, it’s been some time since this action figure was released in the Star Wars 30th Anniversary Collection, but it was only recently that I finally got hold of it at a local convention.

501st Legion Clone Trooper

Well, even though this figure was released sometime last year, Hasbro saw fit to include the 501st Legion Clone Trooper (VC60) in the “Greatest Hits” wave in the now-paused Star Wars Vintage Collection, which recently afforded me the chance to add it to my collection.

ARC Commander Blitz (Defend Kamino Battle Pack)

ARC Commander Blitz shares the same molds for upper legs, torso and upper arms with the regular non-removable helmet clones but his appearance is strikingly different thanks to a number of newly tooled pieces.

Aayla Secura is one of the few characters in the prequels that had always come out looking gorgeous in action figure form.

Lieutenant Thire (Clone Wars)

Well, today I’ll be reviewing Clone Lieutenant Thire, from the Clone Wars gift set released back in 2011. Lieutenant Thire had already been released both as a single carded figure (2009) and in a two-pack with another member of his team (2010), but since those releases are long gone now, I had to get a boxed set to get him.

Mace Windu & Jango Fett (Jedi Force)

One aspect I really enjoy about collecting these type of figures, is how stress-free it has been. Hasbro releases about half a dozen sets a year, which is considerably less than the number of figures released on the other 3.75-inch. lines. And unlike those other lines, the Jedi Force sets are pretty much available all year round.

Darth Maul with Sith Speeder (Jedi Force)

I am quite enthralled by the rebooted Jedi Force line by Hasbro. I find that in general, the figures are very well made and offer a pretty good value, especially the figure 2-packs. One of the new 2013 releases in this line is none other than Darth Maul and his Sith Speeder, which I’ll be reviewing today.

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.
