Today’s review is part of the Toy Advent Review Calendar. Visit adventfigurereviews.com for a new toy review every day until Christmas! Star Wars holiday items are generally stupid. Anachronistic and stupid. Why the hell would Yoda or Darth Maul or Jango Fett wear a Santa costume? Why would Boba Fett be armed with a candy […]

Star Wars Black 6″ Star Wars The Black Series Sandtrooper Figure 6 Inches $10.12 Star Wars The Black Series R2-D2 Figure 6 Inches […]

Mordles Review by Doc Thomas Mordles are great. Make no bones about it. These little guys rock. Others have already conclusively covered Mordles and their origin as part of Ideal Toys’s 1980s toyline Rocks & Bugs & Things, so I wont go into that here (I highly recommend Dinosaur Dracula’s terrific rundown). As far as I […]
This isn’t the most thrilling story ever, but I find it interesting so I’m following up on it. Phil Reed of Battlegrip.com puts forth the theory that if Chewbacca is in an upcoming wave (as is rumored), Hasbro may have wanted to make sure there were Hans on the pegs when Chewie came out.

BBTS has Star Wars Black Series 3 up for preorder, and the case assortment appears to be: 1 Bespin Luke, 1 Prequel Kenobi, 1 Stormtrooper, and 1 ANH Han Solo. Huh? As fond as I am of that Han, this doesn’t make sense. The first and obvious figure for that last slot is another Stormtrooper. […]
Amazon is having a sale on Star Wars Black (6″ and 3.75″). While I’d obviously prefer you buy them via my commissions link, I feel obligated to mention that other stores like Target will match Amazon’s prices if you show them to the cashier. Tamashii has (finally) solicited the first of their awesome effects sets for […]
