st Mos Eisley News Brief: Expand your Search!

October 13, 2017, 07:54:05 AM by Darth Spice
For those of you who did not splurge for Force Friday II and did not pick up the Black Series Luke Skywalker with Landspeeder or Rey and speeder, good news for you.  It seems in all the confusion, could be packaging but in any case these two items have been showing up on clearance endcaps for the price of $30!  So be sure to check more than the toy aisle when you hit up retail locations.  Thanks again to our friends and Jedi Temple Archives for the tip, United We Find!

st Update from BBTS: New Hasbro Stock & Hot Toys Pre-Orders

October 13, 2017, 07:50:58 AM by Darth Spice

Hasbro Black Series:  Kids and fans alike can imagine the biggest battles and missions in the Star Wars saga with figures from The Black Series! With exquisite features and decoration, this series embodies the quality and realism that Star Wars devotees love.

Hot Toys - Holiday Special Boba Fett:  First introduced in an animation short in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special television film, Boba Fett made his debut as a fearsome bounty hunter in the Star Wars galaxy! Featuring Boba Fett's classic look from the Star Wars Holiday Special animation, the highly accurate 1/6th scale Boba Fett (Animation Version) figure is specially equipped with blue and yellow colored Mandolorian armor, weapons, and his iconic jetpack.

Rey F/X Lightsaber:  Capture the power of the Jedi with the Rey (Jedi Training) Force FX Lightsaber from Star Wars The Black Series, modeled after Rey's lightsaber from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. A true-to-story replica of Rey (Jedi Training)'s iconic blue lightsaber from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, this authentically-designed lightsaber is complemented by a real metal hilt and a clear display stand for ultimate collectability.

Takara Transformers / Star Wars:  This mash up of Transformers and Star Wars gives the TIE Advanced x1 the ability to transform into a robotic version of Darth Vader. A mini Darth Vader figure is included with this transforming ship and is able to fit into the cockpit in vehicle mode.

st Check those figures, Troopers!

October 08, 2017, 03:47:08 PM by dj121
For fellow collectors who open, like myself, this is something you are going to want to see. It's not exactly news that Hasbro has glaring quality control issues. Many examples can be seen with a simple scroll through facebook. The Hascon exclusive Captain Rex figure had issues with the vacuum formed tray. There were reports of the Luke figure included with the Landspeeder coming with two of the same hand.

It doesn't stop there. The Toys R Us exclusive Commander Gree figure is also showing up with Q.C issues. Here is a prime example from my own experience. As you can see in the photo, he came with TWO LEFT FEET! I already checked with my store and they have more on the shelf. Time for an exchange. So if you open, take a minute and fully inspect to make sure the figure is 100% in order, while replacements are available! If you keep your figures MISB, chances are you will never see any of these defects. Which may not bother you, but down the road, if someone else who opens acquires the figure, it may not be good news for them.

st Mos Eisley News Brief: Thanks Frank!

October 07, 2017, 12:23:50 PM by Darth Spice
I have been following our good friend and ally Frank "Niubniub" Diorio rebuilding his collection display after a recent move and needless to say I was pretty impressed with these cabinet organizers he used from Bed Bath and Beyond.  They range in price from $5.99 to $7.99 and have a rubber 3-tiered shelf that without a doubt make for affordable figure displays.  When is the last time you have heard the A-word in Star Wars collecting? I picked up a couple for my son and he put them to use right away!  (See photo) Click below to see if they suit your collecting needs and thanks again to the Diorama Master for the tip!  United We Find.
