Just got a email from one of our readers in California saying he found the Toys R Us Exclusive Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights sets at his local store. He passed along the Item numbers which are the same for both sets #385209 and they had a retail price of $39.99 each.
These should be nationwide within the next week or so. Happy Hunting!
With the addition of The Black Series R2-D2 #09 figure, HD photos of wave 2 have been completed and uploaded to our Photo Gallery. I am not sure whats going on over at the manufacturing plant, but some of this figure's details have not been painted. Not sure if its due to cost cutting or laziness, who really knows. R2-D2 has the typical Droid articulation and does have a hidden 3rd leg that can be reviled by turning his head. Accessories included with this figure is a pair of Booster Rockets.
If your looking for the The Toys R Us Exclusive Republic Gunship and can't find it at your local store, your other option is to buy it now at ToysRus.com. These are now in stock and ready to ship with a retail price of $119.99.
Uploaded are new HD Photos of The Black Series 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper #12 figure. Right off the bat this figure has some issues. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't The Torso, Shoulders, and Calves suppose to be painted gray as well? The paint that actually made it on this figure has been applied a bit sloppy just like the rest of the Clone Troopers in The Black Series Toy Line. As for accessories, he includes a Blaster Rifle and Removable Helmet. Enjoy the Pictures.
Toys R Us has a 15% Off coupon good on your regular-priced purchase. This is valid from 9/29/13 - 10/5/13. While not the best deal Toys R Us has offered, it still saves you some cash, especially on the $119.99 Republic Gunship.
I know you guys have been waiting for some HD pictures of the 2013 Black Series Luminara Unduli #11 figure, so here you go. Hasbro did a pretty good job on this figure. The sculpt looks awesome and has lots of articulation. She includes a Removable Headdress, Removable Robe, and Lightsaber. As most figures with soft goods, the Robe is a bit to long, but not to bad. Enjoy all the new pictures!
I had high hopes for the 2013 Black Series Stormtrooper #13 figure, but was let down with the sample I received. First off the paint application is really sloppy. Second Hasbro re-used the Sandtrooper torso, and the Stormtrooper has a slit in his back for a Backpack. Lastly the 3 piece Blastech E-11 Rifle falls apart extremely easy. Now I am not sure if all Stormtrooper #13 figures will be like this, but my sample was. Hopefully these issues will get fixed in the future. Enjoy the pics!
Added to our HD Photo Gallery today is the 2013 Black Series Pablo-Jill #10 figure. Personally I think this figure turned out awesome and I don't really have any complaints except why no Saber Hilt accessory? Would have been nice to have one to attach to his belt. Anyways the sculpt looks great and has lots of articulation. He includes a Jedi Robe which fits fairly well and a Lightsaber. Be sure to check out the new HD Photos!
This morning I stopped by my local Toys R Us store here in Texas and found their Exclusive Republic Gunship. There was 2 on the shelf and retail price was $119.99. I have also recieved emails from fellow collectors finding these in California and Arizona. These should be available nationwide in the next week or so. Happy Hunting!
Just uploaded to our Black Series HD Photo Gallery is the Mara Jade #14 figure. The figure sculpt looks great, but if I had to complain about one thing its the 80s big hair. Mara is super articulated and includes a Lightsaber, Lightsaber Hilt, Blaster Pistol, and Removable Gun Holster. Enjoy all the new pictures.
Added some preview photos of The Black Series wave 2 card backs to our Facebook page. I am working on loose photos now and will add them to the site as I get them done.

Just received a case of The Black Series Wave 2. I will start to work on pictures today.
Upon opening the case I noticed one thing. The bubbles are attached and there is no tape! Hopefully Hasbro has gotten the issue fixed and all future cases are tape free.

One of our readers have alerted us that the Amazon Exclusive TIE Interceptor is under item review. This is not surprising due to the fact that many collectors have received non-mint boxes and have returned them. This item should be back up for ordering in a few days, after Amazon sorts things out as they did with the Slave I.
Revisited today is the overly masculine Rebel Fleet Trooper from the 1997 Power of the Force Freeze Frame Toy Line. He has 6 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips. Included with this figure is a Blaster Pistol and Rifle.

Angry Birds Star Wars II is now available for download on the App Store for $.99. The official release date for this was suppose to be tomorrow 9/19/13, but Rovio released it a day early.
I just downloaded it to my iPad and iPhone and have to say its pretty awesome if your a fan of the Angry Bird franchise.
I thought I would recap The Black Series figure variations that we reported last week.
Padme Amidala #01Anakin Skywalker #03Biker Scout #07
These figures all had paint and other updates and were packaged on cards with a date stamp of 31751. I have acquired the entire first wave of 8 with the date stamp of 31751 and these were the only 3 with changes so far. You can view photos of the variations on the figure's page.
Did you think The Black Series Padme Amidala #01 figure looked a bit pale before? Looks like Hasbro agreed and has changed her skin tone from a light beige to a pinkish skin color. The newer pinkish skin tone was found on a card with a date stamp of 31751.
The skin tone change is very noticeable in person, and even under my bright studio lights can still be seen clearly. Check out larger photos of the change on her page.
Geez the changes to The Black Series Biker Scout #07 figure keep coming. Reader "Lisa" pointed out that the Visor on the Biker Scout's Helmet seems to be reshaped. I was able to track down a bunch of these at my local stores, and they all shared the same date stamp of 31751. In the picture above we have the 1st and 2nd version. The 3rd is a factory error.
So lets recap the changes we have reported so far:
Thermoformed bubble / Smooth Bubble.Black pouch belts on hips. / White pouch belts on hips.Dull white armor / Bright white armor.Yellow boot soles / Orange boot soles.Light tan mid section / Dark tan mid section.Straight helmet visor / Arched helmet visor.
All these variations can be seen on the figures's page.
