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.

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.

The Star Wars Expanded Universe is a rather bizarre beast. Over the years there have been numerous books, comics and videogames that explore the often-unseen events that take place in the lapses of times punctuated by the films. The sheer volume of information is simply way too cumbersome for me to bother trying to catch up, although there is one segment of the Expanded Universe I feel comfortable with, and that is video games.

Darth Nil & Delia Blue (Star Wars Comic Packs)

Even though the Hasbro 2-figure Comic Packs are no longer in production, the general consensus was that these were pretty good value for the money, by including two action figures and a reprint of a comic book.

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.

Luke Skywalker & Mara Jade 2 Pack

I know, with the recent Jedi Luke I said I was getting worn out on farmboy figures.  Well, this one appealed to me for a couple of reasons.  One this is a fairly unique Luke, not EU (Expanded Universe) enough to not be recognizable. Second it was a two pack with Mara Jade, who goes on to marry Luke in […]

Order 66 Tsui Choi & BARC Trooper

Target is continuing their series of Order 66 figures this year. These tubed sets pair a Jedi with a clone trooper. I would assume the troopers are guards for Vader and Palpatine. As for the good Jedi, the troopers would be their assassins. I normally don’t comment on packaging, but feel compelled to do so here. The tubes these guys […]

Imperial EVO Trooper

Yeah, I’m a bit of Stormtrooper junkie. I’m not an army builder, but, if I find something other than a repaint variation, I’ll normally pick it up. That’s why I have a Crowd Control Stormtrooper in my collection. The upcoming “Force Unleashed” video game and tie-in figures have given us two such trooper variations. I recently looked at the Imperial Jumptrooper. This […]

Obi-Wan Kenobi & Arc Trooper Alpha

I’ve not picked up any of the comic two packs up to this point. I don’t really keep up with EU stuff, so those were out. The Marvel figures while cool, and accurate to the source material, were just too goofy looking for me. I couldn’t put a blue Stormtrooper in the middle of display […]

Animated Debut Boba Fett

For most of us around since the Seventies, there are things we regret. More over, there’s evidence in picture form of most of these things. I can think of an Easter picture my mother hasof a knee-high Nerd on an Easter Bunny’s knee wearing a blue blazer with a wide white belt and turtle neck. For George Lucas, it’s the […]

I keep saying I’m not any EU fan, yet I seem to buy a fair amount of EU figures. The subject of this review is one of them. The Darktrooper from the “Dark Forces” video game. I have to say I might have bought him even if I hadn’t played the game.On a similar note, I always say I […]

Imperial Jumptrooper

I always say I’m not really an Expanded Universe collector. And then something comes out that catches my eye. I tend to go for the EU pieces that could be from a film. Tsui Choi is a good example of this. There were various Jedi shown from different races in the prequels and his race, while not shown as a Jedi, is […]
