The Vintage Collection- Found at Tuesday Morning Discount Stores!

Hey DSP readers,

If you have a Tuesday Morning store anywhere near your area, check it out because you might find figures from last year's TVC assortments for only $4.99!

I stopped at one near my house today and found Han Solo (Endor), Slave Leia (Return of the Jedi card), Logray, Darth Vader (ESB) and a Rebel Fleet Trooper.  Other reports include different figures, but it seems that last year's Bespin Han wave and the Return of the Jedi repack wave make up most of what's been found.  Hat tip to forum members at Bantha Skull and HissTank for the info!

Droid Factory coming to Tatooine Traders at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Large scale indeed – the Droid Factory has 71 different pieces to create the 3 ¾-inch figures! To get started, guests chose a dome, a body and legs offered in a variety of colors and styles (various parts and colors may change). There are optional third legs and novelty hats that can be added. Three domes – R6, R8 and R9 – were created exclusively for this experience at Disney Parks.  Droids will be sold either in single or dual packs (the latter has a value price). They can also be used with the playsets we’ve created like the Starspeeder 1000. Click here to read the full article.

Toy Gallery Update: Republic Assault Submarine

Finally something new in the stores! I found the latest Clone Wars deluxe sets. I picked up the Republic Assault Submarine with the Scuba Clone Trooper. I enjoyed photographing this one because of all the features and poses you can put this Clone Trooper into. The Submarine transforms into attack mode and can be displayed like the old POTF2 deluxe Skiff that came with the Tattooine Luke. Check out the many photos I put together showing off this awesome mini rig by clicking here.

Clone SCUBA troopers, also known as clone subtroopers, were elite aquatic assault clone troopers grown on the planet Kamino for the Grand Army of the Republic. Trained in underwater tactics and outfitted with specialized clone trooper armor and blasters, clone SCUBA troopers were deployed on numerous aquatic battlefields throughout the Clone Wars, allowing the Galactic Republic to challenge marine foes on equal footing. Jedi Master and General Kit Fisto led units of clone SCUBA troopers on several occasions over the course of the Clone Wars, with the aquatic soldiers proving invaluable during two battles with the Confederacy of Independent Systems on the Outer Rim water-world, Mon Calamari. -Taken from

Diorama Spotlight: Mos Maa'eli by Luke Favaloro

At first when I saw this particular image, I thought it must of been some deleted scene from the movies that I missed or something. After clicking on the image I realized that it was figures. How impressive is that to make a diorama look almost movie like. This set up was created by Luke Favaloro which can be found on here facebook page. Check out his page to see more images of this awesome looking dio.

Toy Gallery Updates: Lando Calrissian in Sandstorm Outfit VC89

Wave 2 of the Vintage Collection for 2012 has been very hard to find at retail stores. I got lucky and found two out of the five back in Feb however they were not in Walmart's system which is probably why I couldn't find the others from the wave. Plus it didnt help that Wave 1 was cloging up the pegs. Lando Calrissian in Sandstorm Outfit is from the Blu-Ray deleted scenes. Underneath his scarf and poncho reveals him in his Skiff Guard Disguise.

A ferocious sandstorm blocks our view. Then, through the ROAR, we HEAR THE VOICES of our heroes. They emerge slowly from the veil of sand, pressing on against the wind. First come Artoo and Threepio, followed by Leia guiding Han, then Luke and Lando come into view, each supporting one side of the towering Chewbacca, who hobbles from his wound. Soon, they can make out some large vague shapes in the blowing sand. It is the Millennium Falcon and, parked beside it, Luke's trusty X-wing and a two-seated Y-wing. They must shout to be heard.

Toy Gallery Update: Super Battle Droid VC37

I went back and added the VC37 Super Battle Droid since I never picked one up during it's original release. However, I did find this one for $4 at Walmart. In fact I picked up four of them at that price for my Trade Federation army. This version is a repaint of the figure from 2007's 30th Anniversary Collection #8 Super Battle Droid with fire accessories.

The B2 super battle droid (SBD) was an upgraded version of the B1 battle droid, with superior armament and armor. They were manufactured after the invasion of Naboo proved need for stronger droids. B2s were used by the Trade Federation, the Techno Union, and later, on a much larger scale, the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Some units were later reactivated on Mustafar by Gizor Dellso and other members of the Separatist holdouts, and the Galactic Alliance also used some B2 units during the Yuuzhan Vong War. -Taken from

Toy Gallery Update: Logray VC56

I finally got around to getting the Vintage Collection Logray up on the Toy Gallery. I would of had this gallery up last week if it wasnt for my vintage Kenner figure missing from my collection. I quickly went on eBay and picked up the original for $6 complete in mint condition. You can view the comparison shot within the Toy Gallery.

Logray was the head shaman for the Ewok tribe who lived in Bright Tree Village. He was tall for an Ewok, with tan-striped fur. Logray often wore a headdress decorated with feathers, beads, and a large churi bird skull. He carried a staff decorated with the spinal bones of a defeated enemy.

After the Battle of Endor, Logray was exposed as a coward and a bully. Chirpa ousted Logray, appointing Paploo in his place. Though the angry old wizard placed a curse on the village, Paploo enlisted the aid of "the Golden One" in a ritual to remove the curse. Logray went into exile, and the Ewoks refused to speak his name ever again. He was stricken from the village "Songs of Remembrance" as though he never existed. -Taken from

Toy Gallery Update: Bom Vimdin VC53

Bom Vimdin has been added to the Toy Gallery. Check out all the cool poses this figure can be put into. I also did a few shots where it appears that he is taking a drink of his blue milk and one where he looks like he is sniping with his rifle by looking through the scope. Quickscoping pro!

Bom Vimdin was a Advozse smuggler and mercenary during the Galactic Civil War. A pessimistic, reclusive being, he had no loyalties to anyone other than himself, and cared only for his credit balance. Around 0 BBY, he was a regular at Chalmun's Cantina in Mos Eisley, though he was widely disliked. Vimdin worked for a wide array of corrupt and dishonorable officials in his life, though his operations thrived during the time of the New Republic.

The Advozse made great profits transporting fugitive Imperials from New Republic territory to those controlled by the Empire, and although he was caught and apprehended many times, his loyal network of spies were able to free him. Eventually, his activities were deemed a threat to the New Republic and Security Chief Airen Cracken added him to his most wanted list. Thought to be one of the best at his profession, Vimdin was a wealthy being for most of his life, though he completely shunned the company of others. Taken from
