The Card That Almost Ruined Star Wars For Me

Warning: Spoilers Ahead for “The Empire Strikes Back” If only we had spoiler warnings like that when I was a kid. Sure there was a what everybody considered a bigger spoiler for Episode 5 of Star Wars, but Han’s state at the end of the movie is what got me. I was really into Star […]

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.

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. […]

Han Solo (Bespin Outfit)

My very first General-Purpose Han Solo was precisely the Bespin Outfit version, and while it lacked the iconic feel of the ANH scoundrel, at least it did fit in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon alongside Chewbacca, which was something the Hoth Gear Han could not do. Hasbro decided to release a Han Solo (Bespin Outfit) as part of their Star Wars Vintage Collection (VC50) and it is a pretty good figure, although not precisely a groundbreaking release.

Marauder Gun Runner Items (Part 1)

I thought it would be nice to give my action figures some presents for the holidays this year. So I ordered some specific things from Marauder Gun Runners for a few of them. First up is an item they had long before Hasbro did it for SDCC this year, a Megatron style P-38. Now, I’m […]

The figure this time comes with the drawn up hood, a brown coat and a load of extras that could possibly make it the best value deal on this character.

Han Solo (Echo Base Outfit)

I have never really identified with Han Solo, and accordingly, I have not been too keen in keeping up with the newer action figures released for the character. Back when the line up for the first wave of the new Vintage Collection was announced, the Echo Base Han Solo was one I did not plan to get at launch date.

Han Solo with Bespin Torture Rack

I watched a few scenes of “The Empire Strikes Back” last night. Mrs. Nerd was in the room when the Han torture scene came on. She asked what are they doing to him. It took me a minute to think it through before I could answer her. Well, they are torturing him just to be mean? No, that’s not it. […]

Large Size Han Solo

Large Size Han Solo

A long time ago for a toy store far, far away, Kenner produced a line of “Large Size” Action figures. They were produced near the standard 12″ size. This way Han Solo could date Barbie and Chewbacca could rip the arms off of Ken. Appearance: I have to say that the likenesses in Kenner’s 12″ […]
