Today we revisit the 2004 Clone Wars Animated Series Clone Trooper (Commander) Figure. He is just a repaint of the 2004 Target Exclusive Clone Trooper, with a new card and insert.
I have just uploaded photos of the 501st Legion Attack Dropship with Clone pilot & Battle Droid. Nothing new in this set, just a repainted vehicle and a couple of recycled figures. With this addition, the complete first wave of the 2013 Class I Fleet Vehicles can now be viewed in our HD Photo Gallery. Enjoy!
Just uploaded to our 2004 Clone Wars Animated Series is probably my favorite figure from this line, which is General Grievous. He includes 2 Lightsabers and a Figure Base. Even though this figure lacks articulation and is pretty much pre-posed its one great figure. Enjoy the new HD Photos.
The following is an official statement on the 2013 Star Wars toy line from the Hasbro Star Wars team. Star Wars fans, The Droid Factory line which was slated for spring 2013 has been cancelled. We were very excited about this line at its inception and wanted to give fans an early sneak peek when we unveiled it at Star Wars Celebration this past summer. Unfortunately since then, through the course of development, we realized that the price would have to be increased and we felt that the value we were adding with the droid parts was no longer substantiated. As a result, we have decided to rework our 3.75” figure program to create a line that is on-par with the quality and pricing of the Vintage Collection. Many of the figures intended for the Droid Factory will become available in this new line in the fall. We’ll be able to share more news on this at Toy Fair. We also recognize that there were many hard-to-find Vintage Collection figures in 2012. So, as we shared last December, we will
Getting back to our revisits, I have just uploaded new photos of the 2004 Clone Wars Animated Series Anakin Skywalker figure, as seen in Season III. He includes 2 Lightsabers and Figure Base. Enjoy the Pics!
Rumors floating around the web is that Hasbro has cancelled the 2013 Droid Factory Toy Line and those figures will be packed under a new Toy Line. Hasbro has not officially announced this yet, so its still considered a rumor. We will post any official updates once we receive them from Hasbro.
Today I have photographed and uploaded all new photos of the 2013 501st Legion AT-RT with ARF Trooper & TX-21 Tactical Droid. While these are repaints they do look pretty awesome. Check them out!
Here is our first new photos for 2013. Just uploaded is the 2013 Yoda's Jedi Attack Fighter with Yoda & Super Battle Droid set. The vehicle itself is pretty good, but the 2004 recycled Super Battle Droid is a bit dated and the painted headset and eyes on the Yoda figure just looks goofy. Be the judge yourself and check out the HD pictures.
StarWarsCollector.com would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Lets all hope that the 2012 distribution issues are in the past and does not repeat in 2013. Have a safe year!
Well today is the official date for retailers to sell the new 2012 Movie Heroes and Discover the Force toys even though retailers like Walmart and Toys R Us has already started to sell them weeks in advance. Target seems like the only store sticking to the release date at least around here. Hopefully all the pegs and shelves at all retailers will be fully stocked with the new toys. Happy Hunting!
Just uploaded to our Photo Gallery are some boxed photos of the 2012 Movie Heroes Deluxe:BARC Speeder with Clone TrooperSith Speeder with Darth MaulNaboo Royal Fighter with Obi-Wan KenobiSTAP with Battle DroidEnjoy the photos and happy hunting!
I have added some more boxed preview photos of the 2012 Vintage Collection wave 1 vehicles, which are AT-AP (All Terrain Attack Pod) and the Republic V-19 Torrent Starfighter. These vehicles look great in Vintage packaging!
We have created a new section in our Photo Gallery. Its The Vintage Collection's non exclusive vehicles and to kick it off I have posted some boxed preview photos of the 2012 Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter vehicle. Enjoy the pics.
Here are some more Boxed Preview Photos of the 2012 Movie Heroes Vehicles wave 1. Added are the Sith Infiltrator and the Trade Federation AAT (Armored Assault Tank). The only thing that I know is new out of these 2 vehicles is a retooled cockpit in the AAT, but you wont see it until I get some loose photos posted.
Added to our Gallery today are some boxed preview photos of the 2012 Movie Heroes Anakin Skywalker's Podracer and Sebulba's Podracer vehicles. Price on these were $24.96 each. They look to be just repacks from Episode 1, but I will have to open them up and check for sure. The box art looks nice though, be sure to check them out.
Just noticed something on the 2 Movie Heroes Battle Droid MH04 figures. The Battle Droid (Tan) MH04 figure has big eyes and the Battle Droid (Maroon) MH04 has small eyes. Will Hasbro be consistent and change big to small or small to big? Per the date stamps on the back of the cards I have, the Tan version is the earlier of the 2. Personally I like the smaller eyes better. I guess we will have to wait and see as more of these hit the pegs.
As I previously reported today, I picked up the Movie Heroes Battle Droid (Maroon) MH04 variant figure at Toys R Us, so I have added a Card Front preview photo of this figure to our Gallery. Enjoy!
The MTT has officially been revealed in a Hasbro Product Booklet from the UK Toy Fair and a photo has surfaced over at theredshadows.com. This will be the next Big Vehicle for 2012 and will probably retail for about $150. Per the description in the booklet it reads:"The most iconic vehicle from Episode 1 comes to life with 20 combat-ready droids and full battle action sounds, weaponary, and motorized droid deployment".Sounds like it will be awesome.
JediNews has obtained some new Vintage Figure photos from the UK Toy Fair. These are Galen Marek (The Force Unleashed II), Nikto Guard from Return of the Jedi, and Shae Vizla (The Old Republic). Be sure to head over to JediNews to check out all the photos of these figures.
Looks like my local Toys R Us is not paying attention to the 2012 Star Wars toys street date of 1/30/2012 because there Star Wars section was fully stocked today. I was able to pick up the 3 new Vintage vehicles, Pod Racers figure set, and Maroon Battle Droid figure. Happy Hunting!
Added to our 2012 Clone Wars Gallery today, is a card front preview image of the Republic Troopers Battle Pack. This set has some cool repaints. Included in this Battle Pack are Clone Trooper Hardcase, Clone Trooper Cutup, and Bomb Squad Trooper. Enjoy the photo.
I went ahead and added some card front preview photos of the 2012 Movie Heroes Battle Packs. These 2 sets are:Geonosis Arena BattleRebel HeroesThese Battle Pack are no longer boxed and have been placed on cards. It look like these figures are repacks from 2002. I have no idea why Hasbro has chosen these instead of using more current figures with better sculpts and articulation.
My local Walmart let some more 2012 Star Wars toys slip though the 1/30/2012 street date as I found the 2012 Sebulba's Pod Racer, Anakin Skywalker's Pod Racer, Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator, and AAT Trade Federation Tank vehicles last night. Price was $24.96 each. These are just repacks and should be available just about everywhere at the end of the month.
Today I have posted some card front preview photos of the 2012 Movie Heroes figures to hold you over until we get the loose photos posted. There are a total of 12 figures in this wave, with 1 variant. There is a tan and maroon Battle Droid figure in the mix. Enjoy the photos.
I have been getting a lot of emails from our readers requesting some preview photos of the new 2012 Clone Wars figures that I have not photographed yet. So I have uploaded some preview card front pictures from wave 1. Check them out in our 2012 Clone Wars Basic figures Gallery. Just want to mention that these are our images and not Hasbros.
