September 2014 LootCrate Spoilers Items Loot Crate

I never thought that I could fall prey to the lure of a monthly subscription “mystery box” of geek items, but Loot Crate has won me over with their fantastic mixes of beloved properties and hot companies like Funko.

Star Wars Black Series 6″ Wave 4 Case: Stormtrooper & Boba Fett!

Star Wars Black Series 6 Inch Figures Wave 4 Clone Trooper Boba Fett Stormtrooper Anakin

The first year of the Star Wars Black Series 6″ figures line has caused a lot of frustration and anxiety for many collectors–to say the least. On paper the one-per-case mix of every character seemed like a great idea, but that didn’t take into account the insatiable appetites of army-builders and the far greater popularity of certain unique characters. After much aggravation and many collectors contemplating giving up, Hasbro has countered by remixing and re-soliciting the Star Wars Black Series Wave 4 case and making it one of the most desirable Star Wars cases ever…

Star Wars 2014 Inquisitor Action Figure Star Wars Rebels

Rumors have been running rampant since New York Comic Con 2013 back in October, but Hasbro is closing out 2013 today by confirming some facts about their 2014 Star Wars Rebels action figure line.

What’s also not a surprise is the level of articulation that will be built into this Star Wars Rebels Inquisitor figure–although it will disappoint a lot of folks…

Sideshow Star Wars 1/6 Imperial Probe Droid Photos & Order Info

Sideshow Imperial Probe Droid Sixth Scale Figure 2014

When Sideshow Collectibles first showed off concepts for a Star Wars sixth scale Imperial Probe Droid figure at San Diego Comic Con a few years back, many collectors speculated that it couldn’t be done. They cited that an Imperial Probot 1/6 scale figure would be too big, too expensive, and would be too much of a unique tool to see production. Those collectors were wrong.

Coming in mid-2014, the Sideshow Star Wars 1/6 Probe Droid figure goes up for pre-order this week!

Daily Toy Review #98: Star Wars Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Construction VC87 Deleted Scenes Action Figure

Emperor Palpatine Duel with Star Wars Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Construction VC87 Deleted Scenes Action Figure

Every once in a while I’ll hear a little too much negativity toward a figure and be jaded against it before I even get it myself. Such was the case with the Star Wars Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Construction action figure from the Blu-Ray Deleted Scenes. I previously reviewed and mostly enjoyed Sandstorm Lando, Sandstorm Leia, and the Mon Calamari Rebel Pilot from this wave, but going in I …
