xx Sandwatch Guide: Hasbro's 2012 Bespin Battle Battle Pack

October 21, 2014, 08:55:36 AM by curto

For your viewing pleasure, here's a quick Sandwatch Guide flashback to 2012's Bespin Battle Battle Pack from the Movie Heroes line. This set continued the trend of creating figures with detailed sculpts, but with limited articulation. Although the end results are nice, it's unfortunate to lose the articulation that collectors have come to love from this line. Get the full gallery after the jump!

xx Mos Eisley News Brief: Star Wars Oxygen #11

October 21, 2014, 08:28:05 AM by curto
NEW SHOW! "Welcome back music lovers to Star Wars Oxygen as we continue to spin the tunes and discuss the famous music from the franchise. This month, we continue our focus on the music of Return of the Jedi. David W. Collins & Jimmy Mac have tons of info and trivia about the soundtrack to the 1983 film, along with several fun anecdotes & stories. We discover the many uses of "source music" within the film, specifically in Jabba's palace where "Lapti Nek" is often heard being performed by the Max Rebo Group. Then, we travel to the Ewok village to appreciate some of the sounds of Endor. Plus, listener feedback, more Tuba the Hutt, and some spooky stuff to get you ready for Halloween - Star Wars-style!"

xx Sandwatch Guide: Hasbro's 2012 Duel On Naboo Battle Pack

October 20, 2014, 03:54:45 PM by curto

For your viewing pleasure, here's a quick Sandwatch Guide flashback to 2012's Duel On Naboo Battle Pack from the Movie Heroes line. This set was one of the first to offer up what has become the new standard for Hasbro's Star Wars line...detailed sculpts, but with limited articulation. Since these characters from THE PHANTOM MENACE were never made in that style, this was an interesting take. But is it what fans would want? Get the full gallery after the jump!

xx Sandwatch Guide: Hasbro's 2013 The Black Series - 6" Figures Wave 1

October 15, 2014, 04:04:15 PM by curto


For your viewing pleasure, the 4-figure initial wave of action figures that made up The Black Series - 6" Figures Wave 1 are now added to the Sandwatch Guide. 

Taking a cue from the Marvel Legends line, Hasbro created a brand-new scale for Star Wars figures. True, there have been 6" scale Star Wars figures before, but never as well-sculpted with detailed accessories and multiple points of articulation. This new scale was meant to be the "best of the best" in terms of what Hasbro could do, and their initial wave was an interesting mix of a hero, a villain, a trooper, and a droid.  Like it or love it, the 6" scale is here to stay...but this debut wave really set the bar pretty high in terms of what the line could become.  Get the full gallery after the jump!

xx Sandwatch Guide: Hasbro's 2013 The Black Series - Wave 1

October 10, 2014, 10:53:05 AM by curto

For your viewing pleasure, the 8-figure initial wave of action figures that made up The Black Series wave 1 are now added to the Sandwatch Guide. 

My oh my, how things have changed...! Originally announced as part of a resurgence of the fan-favorite "Droid Factory" lineup, these figures were a mix of characters from an aborted 3D movie release with upgrades to popular characters from the Original Trilogy. Consisting primarily of repaints and kit-bashed figures, it's not really a B-A-D (pun intended) selection of characters. But for long-time collectors, there's nothing really NEW here either, as all of these characters have been made as action figures before. Another sore spot with fans was the cardback design...a last-minute change that might have been better served if The Vintage Collection had remained for another year.
