Battle Droid (Clone Wars)

  If I had to name one type of character that consistently warmed pegs at everywhere I went, looking for Star Wars figures, it would be the lowly CIS Battle Droid.   These guys looked impressive in the Episode I trailer over ten years ago, but over time, they became a joke due to their […]

Dr. Evazan

Well, let me be frank here by saying that, back in the 70’s, I never really remembered how the guy that was about to pick a fight with Luke in the cantina scene looked like.

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. […]

Starkiller

Let me start by saying that I like Star Wars. And I like video games. And, obviously, I also like action figures, so it is pretty much a given that I would have more than a passing interest in whatever exists in the intersection of those three sets.

Gungan Warrior

Even though as a species, Gungans have not received the same amount of toy love as, say, Ewoks, I have always considered them a pretty cool alien race, Jar Jar notwithstanding.

Shock Trooper

It’s been a long time since I bought a clone trooper or the like. I have bunch and just really don’t need more. The Shock Trooper lured me in for a couple reasons. First, he was on sale. Second, I only have two of them. Appearance: Like most clone troopers, the base armor is the […]

Weequay Skiff Guard

One of the last figures from the Star Wars Vintage Collection is one I had been waiting to get for quite some time. The vintage Kenner Weequay was one I really liked from my childhood, because it was one of those figures whose arms were made in a pose that was not just straight down.

Like Darth Malgus, Shae Vizla (VC101) is another character from the Star Wars: The Old Republic online game.

Mandalorian Speeder

The inclusion of the Mandalorians back in the second season of the Clone Wars CGI show caused some stir because it practically tore down most of what author Karen Traviss had been writing about them ever since the publication of her Republic Commando novel.

Darth Vader (X-Ray Head)

I’m one of those folks who gave up on buying Darth Vader figures years ago. Yet, the new “X-Ray” head version was just too tempting. Appearance: This figure is like a lot of other Vader and Luke figure and tied to one particular scene from the films. Specifically, he’s from the scene when he is […]
