TAC#16 Darth Vader

I understand that all the kids think that Darth Vader is cool. He’s the bad ass of the galaxy, fights with a lightsaber, and chokes people from across the room. However,how many of figures of him do we need? The vintage line had one. And for the most part, that’s all we needed. His costume […]

Fireside Padme Amidala

Fanboys have been around for a long time. For that reason, there always seems to be a scantily clad female heroine in Sci-Fi films. Barbarellla, Uhura, and Dale Arden where all precursors to Princess Leia. When “Return of the Jedi” came along, Leia was “enslaved” by Jabba the Hutt and forced to cover her self in an outfit very uncharacteristic of […]

Jawa & LIN Droid

Ah, Jawas. The mysterious little nomadic junk dealers that give R2 and 3PO a lift. I’ve always had a soft spot for these guys. I think as a kid watching Episode 4 you could relate to them. They were about your size and height, and ran around picking up junk. One Halloween (77 or 78), I was Jawa. Of course, […]

Rebel Honor Guard

The end of Star Wars with it’s elaborate medal ceremony gave us a look at a bunch of the different folks involved in the Rebellion. This guy was apparently there to keep the peace when things got rowdy.These guys are obviously the rebel counterparts to the the red robed Imperial Guards. I would imagine their function is more ceremonial than […]

Death Star Trooper

The first twelve Star Wars Figures. That’s where this fellow harkens back to. You’d have to ask yourself why this guy got made when back when. Why? Easy, two words. Cannon fodder. There was this great Death Star Playset out, and nobody to fill it. You wouldn’t want to have Darth Vader at the computer consoles, would you? And the […]

Biggs Darklighter Rebel Pilot

Hasbro is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Star Wars by treating us with some New Hope characters that fans have wanted for years. I knew that there was a version of Biggs Darklighter coming up that from his deleted ANH scenes, but I didn’t realize that there was a new pilot version coming out as well.This is the second time […]

Luke Skywalker Yavin Ceremony

Ah, the summer of ’77 and Star Wars fever was sweeping through the country. Soon after, kids, including me, where crazy for Star Wars figures. Ceremonial Luke was one of the figures that grade school kids would say was coming out next. The exceptionally bold kids would say they had him, and he was so special they wouldn’t bring […]

Gragra

Lately, it seems like there have been a number of figures that I was interested in seeing, and just never do. I saw exactly one of the “Crispy” Anakins at a comic shop a few months back. If he wasn’t in the hands of a twelve year old, I’d a had him. Endor Luke is a newer example. Gragra […]

I have to say, while I don’t like a good portion of the newer figures Hasbro has been coming out with, they seem to have embraced the fact collectors want EVERY character from the films, not just redone original figures. The last few waves have had some really cool background characters that I would have guessed we would have never […]

Commander Cody

Just when I was starting to like clone troopers, they all turn on the Jedi. Love it or hate, Star Wars Episode III had plenty of troops to make figures from. Since the most of the Commanders had individual names, you knew they would get figures. Cody was one of the more memorable clones. Probably because he was […]

RA-7

RA-7

Saga Legends. The name conjures to mind heroes and their incredible accomplishments. It does not, at least for me, bring to mind a droid that lurks about the Death Star spying on people. Ironically, there are two main places you can see RA-7 droids in Star Wars Episode 4. The first is the Jawa’s Sandcrawler. The second is the Death Star. […]

Master Replicas Scaled E3 Darth Vader Lightsaber

I have to say I’m one of those people who normally doesn’t win things. However, I was lucky enough to win a this saber through a trivia contest at Sir Steve’s guide. I really want to thank the Master Replica’s folks for those contests. It’s a fun to have a trivia contest and see everyone scramble to come up with […]

Smuggler Lando Calrissian

The end of “Empire Strikes Back” left us all wanting more. Han is chilling in carbonite, and Lando and Chewie are taking the Falcon to rescue him. Lando apparently raided Han’s closet for a vest and Seinfeld’s closet for a puffy shirt. Appearance: Yup, this is Lando. Taken from what has to be less than […]

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″ […]

Twin Pod Cloud Car

The Twin Pod Cloud Car (TPCC) is the guardian of Bespin’s Cloud City. They are featured in ESB “escorting” the Falcon to its’ landing platform.Kenner decided in the 80’s that this would make a good toy, and turned its’ brief appearance into a vehicle for action figures. Appearance: Well, it looks like a Cloud Car. […]
