Wooof

You know the old phrase by Shakespeare “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”? Well, something similar can be applied here, as even though the card states that the character name is officially Wooof, he’ll always be Klaatu to me

Anakin Skywalker

I’m not going to get to far into the issue at hand with this figure. This figure represents Anakin in Return of the Jedi before his digital replacement. No matter which side of that fence you are on, this figure came out at a time before the technology for  digital replacement was born. Appearance: Anakin […]

Admiral Ackbar

You know in the last few years it seems Admiral Ackbar has been gaining in popularity. I don’t know if it’s people finally are seeing him has a brilliant strategist or Sheldon Cooper’s excellent mimicry. I’m glad for the aquatic admiral. I have to say I’ve always kind of liked Ackbar. He’s one of the […]

Malakili (Rancor Keeper POTF2)

In the nineties, Hasbro decided that the time was right to bring Star Wars figures back to the world. In hindsight, that was probably a great decision. The original Star Wars generation had reached an age where they had disposable income and were feeling nostalgic for their childhood. At this point Power of the Force […]

Rancor Keeper (Kenner)

Ironically, Kenner’s Star Wars figures are what started my figure collection back when I was wee Nerd. However, I’ve never reviewed a vintage figure on the site. I’ve review other vintage stuff, but never a Kenner 3 3/4″ figure. To continue the Rancor Keeper theme, I decided he’d be the first. You all know him. […]

Ewok 2 Pack (Paploo & Nho’Apakk)

It amazes he me how many people online profess hatred for the Ewoks in “Return of the Jedi.” You would think if that many folks despised them, they would be peg warming every time they released a new one.  But they don’t. People snag the little critters when they see them. I’ve said it before, […]

Princess Leia (Jabba’s Prisoner)

Back in 1997, when the first “Slave Girl” or “Dancing Girl” Leia came out, it was a figure that I thought would never get made. However, this year’s “Legacy” series from Hasbro has brought another new version of this figure. Obviously, this version of Leia is popular with the fanboys. It’s tough as nails Princess […]

Return of the Jedi Poster Offer

I’ve said it before I love mail away stuff. That said, it kind of surprised me the other day when this turned up in a box I was rumaging through. I’m sure I had the proofs of purchase for it. Two proof seems a lot for a fairly cheesey poster. Maybe even then I realized […]

CZ-4

The Star Wars universe is intended to have a lived in look. I think with all the pretty white clone armor and Imperial hardware we’ve seen in recent years it’s easy to over look that. The rest of the universe is worn, used, frayed, etc… The harsh environment of Tatooine is a great weathering agent on its’ inhabitants and […]

Yarna D’al Gargan

This is one of those figures that was definitely made for the collectors out there. Fans have been asking for her sinceshe first appeared on screen in “Return of the Jedi.” Kenner had her in the development pipeline for the vintage line until Lucasfilm axed the idea.  (Check out the prototype here.) Who is she, you ask?  Yarna D’al Gargan is […]

Leektar and Nippet

Ewoks. Love them or hate them, they are a part of the Star Wars Universe. Yes, we’ve all heard the hype of G.L. wanting to use a primitive race of furry creatures to help defeat the Empire.  In doing so, he created a topic that the fanboys have discussed ad infinitum about the merits of.  For my part, I’m okay with […]

Romba & Graak

When I was composing the recent Leektar and Nippet review, I was thinking to myself that there should be more of the modern more articulated Ewoks. This in turn lead me to find pictures of the Romba and Graak two pack online. I was thinking this was one of those items in coin toting 30th […]

Umpass Stay

Depending on when you saw “Return of the Jedi” for the first time will probably determine your feeling towards Umpass Stay. He’s a drummer, okay his card says percussionist, for the Max Rebo Band. However, if you are old enough to remember a pre-special edition Episode 6, he wasn’t there. To me “Lapti Nek” will always be the Rebo band […]

C-3PO & Salacious Crumb

C-3PO didn’t really change through the original Star Wars trilogy very much. However, we have been treated with a couple of variations over the years. This one is taken from a couple of different scenes from “Return of the Jedi.” The first one one is the scene where Boushh brings in the rogue Chewbacca. Jabba thumps 3PO on […]

Bane Malar

If you look in the background of any Star Wars film, you will see a number of very earthly items being used in unearthy ways. Ladies razors being used for walkie talkies. Pen tops being used for belt doodads. Even the original lightsabers were made from something as mundane as a camera flash. A number […]
