Collect All 92!


A large contingent of collectors have been buying Star Wars figures since the 70's. Kenner was able to crank out close to 100 Vintage figures for the Original Trilogy. Since the Modern Line made a comeback in 1995, Hasbro has slowly and surely been revisiting each of the Vintage figures to give their take. With the upcoming retro Vintage Collection and many debates on who or what still needs to be updated, we are going to be running a forum feature detailing each Vintage Figure and their Modern counterpart. So join us on a walk down memory lane in the weeks and months ahead. First up is the hairy beast himself, Chewbacca!

AT-ST's and Dewbacks at Ross


Rumor had it that Ross discount stores were getting in Wal-Mart Dewbacks and AT-ST's. Well yours truly scored a couple AT-ST's for $19.99 just 15 minutes ago at my local Ross store. No Dewbacks for $14.99, but I think that was just my store which didn't have them. Happy hunting and your mileage may vary with these finds!

Bogie Squad Head Change?


Jedi Defender forumite smashwitdaclub took a quick picture for us of the Bogie Squad scout figure from the latest comic packs to point out that the figure's headsculpt seems to have changed... for the worse. The figure on the back of the packaging has a completely different headsculpt while the actual toy appears to have the Galactic Marine's headsculpt, and a lot less neck. Click the image to check it out, and thanks to smash!

You have an option to cancel your order on the postcard with a phone call, but who would want to do that!? It's one of the best mail-ins Hasbro ever did.
