The Empire grows stronger with the addition of a cold-climate range trooper, elite Death Star trooper, cunning Grand Moff Tarkin, and the ever-useful IT-O interrogator droid. I lucked out big at Target on two successive trips – and here I thought I’d have to hunt a while for Tarkin.
And thanks to a used book shop not far from home (Last Exit books in Kent, Ohio) I managed to pick up quite a few legends novels (as well as a new copy of Streets of Shadows from Barnes and Noble and Last Shot, which was on sale at Target) These will all make fine additions to my collection and backlog of Legends series I still need to read through, though Last Shot will probably come next seeing as Solo arrives next month.
Thanks for reading!

My Target finally had these handsome heroes in stock. Shame they didn’t have a friend for my man in red but I do love clones as well!
It’s that time already, isn’t it? Happy holidays, merry Christmas, happy Life Day, and merry Sithmas! Enjoy the holidays, unless of course your service to our Emperor dictates other pertinent duties. For my fellow collectors out there – may your Lego kits be plentiful, your figures’ paint apps look clean, and may your blasters and accessories not be bent out of shape.

Got all my Black Series figures packed for the move! It’s gonna feel like Christmas morning when I unbox them all again!
“Who I am is not important. My message is.” He is the ultimate story of hero-turned-villain, and he was able to redeem himself after his fall from valiant Jedi to Sith conqueror. Revan is finally immortalized in six-inch Black Series format – so how does the new figure measure up to this legend? Continue reading “The Dark Lord is Here: Black Series Revan Review”
Rebel scum never looked so good. A criminally under-utilized character, but a great action figure! Hasbro knocks it out of the park with another Rebels character interpreted into a more realistic art style, and the results are as good as it gets.

I’ve been a little busy planning a wedding and I’m getting over a nasty head cold. Now that I’m better, what better way to celebrate with a new Stormtrooper! This Target exclusive is part of the Rogue One set of figures, though I don’t actually remember ever seeing this trooper in the film. Speaking of the film, the home DVD/blu ray release is this Tuesday, April 4th. So there’s no time like the present to revisit Rogue One’s new Imperial trooper variants!

Since I didn’t grab anything new this week, I decided to take some pictures of my small collection of Black Series vehicles. This is just the collection so far, and while I wasn’t that into them at first, there’s a few on my list now that I want to complete a display.

Tying the end of the Clone Wars into the Galactic Civil War era, Scarif Stormtroopers aka Shore Troopers feature Imperial-style armor with Clone-esque customizations.
