st Dewback Patrol: Brian's Toys - The Photos!

Yesterday at 07:29:20 AM by Darth Spice
It is hard to believe it's been over a week since we made our journey up to Brian's Toys for a private tour of the facilities.  We wanted to do our best to show our readers there is quite an extensive operation involved. The word "scalper" seems to be used quite often when collectors refer to Brian, but there is a price to pay for having nearly every Star Wars toy available and in stock. You have seen the video, now you can click below you'll see the many buildings of inventory, in fact there were two warehouses we didn't even look at but more than anything you can see an American success story, not someone plucking retail dry and selling toys out of their basement! Thanks again to Lance Neilson at 2nd Shift photography for the dynamic lens work, and huge thanks to Brian and all 30 of his staff for an outstanding time. United We Find.

st Sandwatch Live: New 3 3/4 Figures? No Way!

July 30, 2015, 11:21:35 AM by Darth Spice
It's been quite a long time since we could say this, but we have a new 3 3/4-inch action figure to review!  Click below as I am joined by Eric Pfeifer of Twin Suns Outpost as we take a look at Commander Thorn from the Clone Wars.  Do you think Hasbro could have continued with an animated line with both the Clone Wars and Rebels figures? Let us know, and thanks again to Dan Kritchevsky for shooting our lights out! United We Find.

st Mos Eisley News Brief: Wanna crash a Party with Me?

July 30, 2015, 11:05:31 AM by Darth Spice
While the Star Wars programming at Chicago Comic-Con this year will certainly leave something to be desired for any Star Wars fan, we have found a fairly good reason to attend Saturday!  It appears we are not the only one celebrating their anniversary this month, our friends at Star Wars Action News have put together a little chin-dig that my little landing party will certainly be crashing on Saturday evening!  We hope you can join us for the celebration, cake, drinks, and mayhem at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare. We congratulate and wish Arnie, Marjorie and the whole crew the absolute best. Congrats to them on a decade of serving the collecting community and we hope to see you Troopers there!

st Update from B.B.T.S. - New Hot Toys Pre-Order & More!

July 30, 2015, 10:57:38 AM by Darth Spice

Hot Toys: The brave and strong-willed Princess Leia is a beloved character in the original Star Wars trilogy. The Princess Leia 1:6th scale Collectible Figure from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is specially crafted based on the image of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in the film featuring a newly developed head sculpt, detailed hair sculpture of Princess Leia's iconic hair style, specially tailored costume, two types of blasters, and a figure stand.

Gentle Giant: One of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: A New Hope featured Luke and Han, dressed as Stormtroopers, sneaking into Detention Block AA-23 with Chewbacca to rescue the captive Princess Leia. The new Han in Stormtrooper Disguise Deluxe Statue features interchangeable heads (one a Stormtrooper helmet, the other Han's likeness), and two sets of arms. Digitally sculpted and rendered in the highest quality polystone, each limited edition, hand painted statue comes individually numbered and is paired with a matching certificate of authenticity. May the Force be with you!

Bandai Japan: This ultra-cool Samurai armor inspired Stormtrooper figure stands 7 inches tall and features optional hand parts, Japanese katana sword set and a blaster rifle.

Kotobukiya: "Chop Sabers" have returned for a fourth time by popular demand with the all new Luke Skywalker (Blue), Darth Vader (Red), and Luke Skywalker Ep VI (Green) Light-Up Lightsaber Chopsticks! With a simple push of a button on the highly detailed lightsaber hilt (Jedi training not required) the "blade" glows bright so you'll never have to eat in the dark. With detachable lightsaber blades and a larger, sturdier size (over 9.5 inches long) for easy and safe cleaning these chopsticks are fun for the whole family. Eating with these new light-up chopsticks will make you never want to use the fork!

Han Cholo Jewelry: Designer Brandon Schoolhouse has created a line of designer jewelry greatly influenced by Rock N' Roll, Science Fiction, Fantasy Art, and the Los Angeles Culture that has become the "it" accessory among Hollywood fashionistas and celebrities.  All of the pieces in this list of fully licensed Star Wars rings, pendants and bracelets are made of stainless steel with antique detailing and prices ranging from $43.99 to $59.99.

st Dewback Patrol: Brian's Toys - No Really his Toys!

July 29, 2015, 11:50:36 AM by Darth Spice
Our last video from our adventure last week at Brian's Toys concluded with the personal collection of Brian Semling.  I think it's pretty safe to say if you've been a Star Wars collector in the past, this may be the answer to something you've always wanted to know.  Again super huge thanks to that beer-drinking machine, Lance Neilson from 2nd Shift photography!
