Don’t forget to enter our “Trygg Poftu” contest for a chance to win a Star Wars Black 6″ Boba Fett! It all started on November 17, 1978. That’s the day the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special aired for the first and last time. In-between live action scenes that lurched from soul-crushing tedium to wince-inducing sentimentality […]
Don’t forget to enter our “Trygg Poftu” contest for a chance to win a Star Wars Black 6″ Boba Fett! My personal Star Wars: The Phantom Menace story was the same as that of many other SW fans. The excitement of of the initial rumors the prequels would be made. The preview figures. The first […]
In honor of Star Wars Black Week, it’s the Poe Ghostal’s Points of Articulation Star Wars Black Week “Trygg Poftu” Contest! The prize is a Star Wars Black 6″ Series 2 Boba Fett!
The vintage R2D2 I had was the one with the pop-up “sensorscope.” As much as I loved that little toy, it always bugged me he didn’t have the third leg and the feet couldn’t be moved to put him into his proper rolling posture. It would be nearly twenty years before Hasbro finally made an Artoo with both the extra leg and articulated feet. Now, with Star Wars Black, Hasbro is attempting to give us the definitive R2D2 figure. Did they do it?
I’ve been impressed with the sculpting on the Star Wars Black 6″ (SWB6″) line, and the Sandtrooper has possibly the best sculpt in the first wave. All the details on the armor are there. It’s not a complicated sculpt – stormtroopers are mostly clean, straight lines – but there are some nice touches, like the way the clasp on the pauldron creates folds in the orange material.
I found it impossible not to like this figure. I will say that the impressions I got from photos did not convey the figure’s charm when you have it in hand. I actually felt a little of the magic I experienced when I got my first Star Wars action figure in the early ’80s.
JediDefender.com has posted a list of upcoming Star Wars products that supposed originated from the Hasbro Customer Service website. Man, it’s been ages since I posted a rumored list! There are products from a number of lines, but the most relevant for our (well, my) purposes are the Star Wars Black 6″ items: SW 6″ EP […]
There are way too many toy blogs these days. I can show you these hi-res photos of Star Wars Black 6″ Series 3, which were leaked nearly a week ago anyway and have already been posted everywhere. The challenge is finding a way to make MY posting of these photos unique enough to warrant clicking on it as opposed to other sites. I don’t think I’m up to it. Anyway…
So I was opening my SWB figures for the upcoming SWB review week (starts a week from today), and I discovered the weirdest thing on my Darth Maul. It appears that the factory accidentally attempted to put two hinge discs into one of the ankles. One of the hinges literally crosses the other one. In […]
