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. […]

Clone Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi (Space Suit)

Hasbro released this Obi-Wan Kenobi figure in 2009 as part of the ninth wave of figures from The Clone Wars line. This series of figures are based upon the CGI Clone Wars TV show airing on Cartoon Network, and this time the Jedi master wears a decidedly retro styled spacesuit, complete with fishbowl helmet and rocket pack.

Jestergoblin’s Star Wars Blue Milk Recipe

I’ve been following Jestergoblin on Twitter for awhile now. I have to say the commingling of recipes and toy reviews on his site (http://jestergoblin.com/) is a change of pace for the norm. But as a Food Network and toy junkie, I have to say it’s a combination I enjoy. Now he’s amped that up by creating a […]

Jawa & Security Droid

Frequent visitors to the site will know that I have a soft spot for Jawas. I think the pint sized scavengers just captured my imagination when I was a kid and didn’t let go. Frequent readers will also know that I like figures that are able to sit. With this most recent Jawa release we […]

Willrow Hood

I know every one is saying who? Willrow Hood is better know as the Ice Cream Maker Guy from Cloud City. He’s seen briefly after Lando transmits the evacuation order. According to Wookiepedia, Willrow was a Rebel sympathizer who was taking a computer core to dispose of it before it could lead to the Rebel […]

Episode 2 Clone Trooper Desktop Wallpaper

This is one of those things I did, just cause I wanted it for myself. Clone troopers bursting through the screen.  Nothing more, nothing less.

These Aren’t the Droids Desktop Wallpaper

Alright, I can’t remember what caused me to want to make this. Sometimes I just get an idea and want to see it through. I really overuse the “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for” line. Ask Mrs. Nerd and my co-workers. Click the image for full size Wallpaper.

MTV-7 Mini-Rig

I was looking at the list of reviews on the website the other day and noticed I was really lacking in a few different areas. When I look over at my display shelves, I can see a an area for vintage figures, a number of vehicles, and a large section of WOS figures. So I […]

A Grand Army of One (or Two)

I was re-arranging my Emperor’s Arrival display theother day and  realized I had a small army of Stormtroopers in it.  A glance to another shelf a group of six Sandtroopers had detained a landspeeder with Luke, Ben and the droids. And I’m not even going to start on the clone troopers from the newer films.  […]

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 […]

International Bonus Battle Droids

With all the mentions lately of Episode 1,  I thought it would be fun to dust this guy off. Mrs. Nerd had picked this card up at a local comic shop for me. It’s a European E1 realease Destroyer Droid with a bonus Battle Droid. Her thought was I could use it as an army […]

Of Star Wars, Candy, and Love

Mrs. Nerd and I recently watched “Forgetting Sara Marshall” on HBO. Now, I’m not going to say it was a great flick, but it did get me to thinking. The gist of the film is about finding somebody that gets you. The protagonist of the film finds a girl that understands a Dracula musical with […]

Ugnaught

Ugnaughts are one of the creepier creatures from the original Star Wars trilogy. First appearing in “The Empire Strikes Back,” they seem to fill the municipal maintenance functions and act as general laborers. I was never certain of their alliances, though. They play monkey in the middle with C-3PO’s head against Chewbacca. Then they assist […]

In order to raise money for chartering the Millenium Falcon, Luke Skywalker was forced to sell his landspeeder at a used speed dealer in Mos Eisley. The speeder dealer was a large bug headed creature that we only glimpse from a distance. Other than the huge melon, I couldn’t tell you much about the dealer. […]

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 […]

Chewbacca and Disassembled C-3PO Galactic Heroes

I must admit, I never thought these would catch on. I figured the serious collectors would pass them by, and kids would favor the regular figures in their place.  That being said, I apparently was wrong.  There seem to be something with the cuteness factor of seeing your favorite Star Wars characters cartoonized in miniature.Until now, I’d passed up the little […]

TAC Stormtrooper

Stormtroopers are the backbone of the Imperial forces.  So, I really don’t mind picking up a new one when they come out.   But, I’ve managed to round up a pretty good army of the Super Articulated ‘trooper.  So, I was going to pass on this guy.  One thing saved him however.  He has a removable helmet, and doesn’t have a […]
