Revisited today is the 1998 Power of the Force Freeze Frame Princess Leia in Hoth Gear. This figure was a Fan Club Exclusive and retailed for $9.99. She has 6 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips. As for accessories, Leia includes a Blaster Pistol.
Added to our 2013 Saga Legends Photo Gallery today is the 12-Inch Obi-Wan Kenobi figure. He has 7 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Wrists, and Hips. He includes a Lightsaber Blade that snaps into the Lightsaber Hilt that is part of the Right Hand. For $9.99 these 12-Inch figures are not that bad.
The 1997 Power of the Force Freeze Frame Weequay Skiff Guard figure is one of the rarest modern Star Wars figures that has been released in the USA. Back in 1997 he had a limited release at retail making him extremely hard to find. If your missing this figure from your collection, your going to have to shell out hundreds of dollars to buy him on the secondary market.
Weequay has 6 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips. He includes a Force Pike and Blaster Rifle. Enjoy all the new HD Pictures.
Since the 2013 Black Series #08 Clone Pilot figure shares the same hand molds as the #02 Clone Trooper Sergeant, it also shipped with the filled in left hand and the open left hand as well. The filled in left hand is a factory error and has been corrected to the open left hand. You can view the pictures of both versions on the figure's page.
Since posting photos of The Black Series Clone Trooper Sergeant #02 figure a while ago, we have been asked about the filled in left hand shown in our pictures. This is actually a factory error which has been fixed. The filled in hand has shown up on earlier date stamps, and you really can't tell which version you have unless you open it, since the Blaster Rifle covers his left hand in the bubble. So far I have opened up 3 of these figures and 2 had the filled in left hand.
I have added photos of the filled in and open left hand on the figure's page.
The 2013 Saga Legends Mission Series Geonosis pack includes a Battle Droid and Jango Fett figure. Each figure has 5 points of articulation, which are Head, Shoulders and Hips. The Battle Droid includes a Blaster Rifle and Back Pack while Jango includes 2 Blaster Pistols and a Jet Pack. As a collector I think these figures look ok. You have to remember that the Saga Legends line is really aimed at kids and are made at a lower cost.
The only big complaint I have is that the Battle Droid does not stand on his own very well. It would have been better if Hasbro gave him a neutral stance with straight legs.
Added to our 2013 Saga Legends Photo Gallery today is the Mission Series Coruscant pack. In this set you get a Anakin Skywalker figure with Lightsaber and a 501st Legion Trooper with Blaster Rifle. These figures have the basic 5 points of articulation with are Head, Shoulders, and Hips. Enjoy the pics!

Stopped by my local Toys R Us here in South Texas and found their Exclusive X-Wing Fighter sitting on the shelf. Retail price is $59.99, but I had a 20% off coupon which reduced the price. I have uploaded some boxed preview photos to our Vintage Collection Photo Gallery. Enjoy!
I had some of our readers ask if I was going to continue Revisiting the older Star Wars Toys. The answer is yes, but the Revisits were put on hold due to the 2013 Black Series and Saga Legends Toy Lines getting released and I had to devote time to get those toys photographed. Now that most of the newer toys have been photographed, I will try and mix in some Revisits as well.
The 1997 Power of the Force Freeze Frame Zuckuss figure was released on a Collection 3 card and retailed for $4.99. He has 6 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips. As for accessories Zuckuss includes a Heavy Assault Blaster Rifle. Enjoy all the new HD Photos!
Added to our Black Series HD Photo Gallery today is the 6-Inch R2-D2 #4 figure. At first I did not really like this figure, but it kind of grew on me after awhile. R2 includes lots of Gadgets, Booster Rockets, ane more. He has about as much articulation as a Astromech Droid can have. Enjoy the photos.

There is some good news and lots of bad news on the Amazon Excluisve Slave I vehicle. Lets start off with the good news. If you ordered your Slave I as a Gift Order they did ship in a brown Amazon box.
The Bad news. Some people that have opened up their Slave I are reporting that there are missing parts and that there is a manufacturing issue causing the wings not to function properly.
Amazon is aware of the problems and have taken this item down for ordering also they have issued the following statement:
"Item Under Review: This item is currently unavailable because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!) We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible".
More people (including myself) have received Amazon's Exclusive Slave I in the white mailer box today. Most of the emails I received are from people outraged that these got shipped this way, because their boxes pretty much got crushed.
I received my order today as well in the White mailer box, but got lucky as it arrived pretty much un-crushed, which surprised the heck out of me. I do have another one of these coming tomorrow as well, but it was shipped as a gift, so we will see what happens with that shipment.
Also it looks like Amazon has addressed this shipping issue. They have removed the shipping info: "This item ships in its own packaging" from the product page. Also some of our readers said that when they called Amazon's customer service to complain on the condition of their order, Amazon stated they are aware of the issue and all future orders will be shipped in a Amazon shipping box from today forward. So if you get your order and your not satisfied with it, be sure to
Stopped by my local Target store today and found their Excluisve Saga Legends The Rise of Darth Vader set today. Price was $29.99 each and the DPCI# for these are 087-06-2471. This set is basically just repacks of previous figures. I have added some photos to our HD Photo Gallery of the box front and back.
If you have a order about to ship or a pre-order for the Amazon Exclusive TIE Interceptor and Slave I, you may want to call Amazon and change your order to a "Gift Order".
Amazon states: "This item ships in its own packaging. To keep the contents concealed, select This will be a gift during checkout".
If you don't select this option on both of these items, there may be a chance of you getting these shipped in the original product box and these items arriving damaged or in a crushed box.
At no extra cost you can have these items shipped as a "Gift Order". Per the 3 customer service representatives I spoke with,
"If you select this option, your items will get boxed in a Amazon shipping box or envelope concealing its contents".
Now this does not guarantee that your items arrive mint, but it does increase the odds.
Rebelscum has posted some shocking news on how someone received their Amazon Exclusive Slave I today. It appears that Amazon's shipping department felt that the original box was good enough to ship the product to their customer. You can see the results of their decision in the image provided.
I am suppose to receive my order tomorrow and hopefully my shipment will not suffer the same fate.
Update: Just noticed Amazon's Shipping notes on the Slave I:
"Is this a gift? This item ships in its own packaging. To keep the contents concealed, select This will be a gift during checkout."
The Amazon Exclusive Slave I is now in stock and ready to ship! Get them while you can. Hopefully Amazon will pack these well, so the boxes don't get crushed or I have a feeling they will get a bunch of returns from collectors.
German Collecting site Starwars-figuren.com has posted some carded photos of the Amazon Exclusive Legacy Collection's Droid Factory 6-Pack which is scheduled to start shipping in October. The packaging looks great, to bad Hasbro decided not to continue with it. Head on over to check it out.
Uploaded to our HD Photo Gallery is The Black Series #02 Darth Maul 6-Inch figure. This is probably my favorite figure in this first wave. You kind of get two figures in one. First you get Maul Tatooine Encounter and also Darth Maul Final Duel. The figure is super articulated and includes a 2-Piece Lightsaber Hilt, 2 Lightsaber Blades, Macrobinoculars, Cloak with Head, and Interchangeable Head. Be sure to check out the photos!
Some of our readers have been asking about the 2013 Saga Legends Mission Series figures, so I have photographed the card fronts and backs of the first wave as a preview and have uploaded them to our HD Photo Gallery. Also the pages have been updated with UPC, ASST, and Card Number info. I will post loose photos after I finish with The Black Series.
