I have started to photograph the 2013 Jango Fett's Slave I Class II Attack vehicle, so as a preview I have uploaded some boxed photos for your viewing pleasure.
If your wondering were all the 2013 Star Wars toys are, they are probably in the stores stock room. Why you ask? There is a Street date printed right on the box "Do Not Put on Shelf Before the Week of February 11th, 2013" which is a Monday.Now even though there is a street date, some stuff will slip through. Example is the case of Star Wars Class II Attack Vehicles that I just bought today at my local retail store. Here is a photo showing the street date. Now you may ask which store I bought this from, but I rather not say because I don't want to get anyone in trouble for selling these early, but it was one of these 3, Walmart, Target, or Toys R Us.

Uploaded are all new photos of the 2006 Saga Collection's Han Solo (in Trench Coat). This figure has 14 points of articulation and he includes a Blaster and Trench Coat. The over all look of this figure looks a bit off, maybe due to the tan flesh tone, but Hasbro did re-release this figure again in 2011 and
Just uploaded are all new Photos of the 2006 Saga Collection Biker Scout. The sculpt of this figure looks pretty screen accurate. He has 14 points of articulation and also includes his trademark pistol. Enjoy!

While no official word from Hasbro yet, fellow collector site JediNews has gotten info at the UK Toy Fair, confirming that most manufacturers will be changing over to the new Vader Packaging starting in July. For the full story head on over to JediNews.
New packaging for 2013? With all the images coming out of the UK Toy Show today, lots of products are packaged in this new Darth Vader packaging instead of the 2013 Green Yoda Packaging that has already hit retail stores.Its unclear if this Vader packaging will phase out the Green Yoda packaging, but in this photo over at Rebelscum.com the same toy is packaged in both the Green Yoda and Vader packaging. Obviously one of these is a earlier prototype and one of these will replace the other. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.
Today's revisit is the 2007 Saga Collection's Han Solo (Hoth Outfit) figure. This is about the best version of this figure you will get as of today. The sculpt is pretty good even though his face is a bit off. Articulation wise there is not much more you could as for. He includes a Blaster, Cold Weather Hat, and a Stentronic Sensor Pack. Enjoy all the new HD Photos.
"Rebellenstützpunkt is probably the largest Star Wars action-figure community in Germany and still growing. On september 21st, 2013 we will hold our 3rd convention, the RebelCon. It started as a small collector meeting and grew into a large convention for action-figures over the past years. In addition to dealing action-figures and related stuff, there will be exhibitions of custom made action-figures and vehicles, original sealed figures from the good old Kenner era. Also many costumed fans browsing the convention. One of the highlights on each RebelCon is a tombola with donated prizes from companies like Hasbro Germany, Panini Comics etc. and private donators as well. From the young fan to the adult collector, almost everybody can catch a prize"....
Next figure on deck to be revisited is The Saga Collection's Bossk (Bounty Hunter) figure. No complaints with this figure at all. Lots of articulation and a nice looking sculpt. He includes his Blaster Rifle as well.
For those that like to collect Card variations, just wanted to point out that there is a variation on The 2006 Saga Collection's Vintage Sand People card back. Whats the variation you ask? The first version has a warning sticker at the bottom of the card, while the second has a printed warning. You can check our the photos and info on the figure's ...

Revisited is The Saga Collection's Sand People (a.k.a Tusken Raider) figure from 2006. In my opinion this is the best version of this figure so far. He includes a Sniper Rifle, Gaffi Stick, and Removable Robe. He has lots of articulation and looks awesome. Be sure to check out the photos.
