Target Exclusive: Special Action Figure Sets are in stores now.

I just picked these figures up from Target today. I had to use the DPCI code to get them to bring them out to me. They said that they were going to set them til next week and I was like I want to buy them now. So hopefully that employee doe...snt get in trouble. I use to work at Target back in the day and the management team are strict and lame. lol The DPCI Code is 087-06-1172 They rang up at $24.99 each. There are six in a case but three of each of these sets. There is no Chewbacca set.

Monday, July 23, 2012 Domain is Back!

Yes, that's right! We got out old domain name back. Back on the winter of 2001 was born. Since then we let the domain expire and went with the current domain which was created after we started up the sequel site. Recently we dropped the "2" and have gone back to the DSP name. Its great to have the .com back as most of my original images in the Toy Gallery had the .com logos. Thanks to Mute for keeping a close eye on our original domain and scooping it back up.

SW Babes: THOSE are the Droids I am looking for..

I know it has been awhile since I posted a SW Babe image so here we go. Check out this random image I found off Facebook. Yes, Those are the droids I am looking for. I know fellow collectors would love to see their women in those outfits.... or maybe not! lol

2012 TCW11 Republic Commando Boss

RC-01/138—simplified as RC-1138 and also known as Delta-38 or by his nickname of Boss—was a clone of Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett. Born in 32 BBY on the watery world of Kamino, Boss was trained by the Mandalorian Cuy'val Dar training sergeant Walon Vau to become a clone commando in the Grand Army of the Republic. Placed in command of three other commandos, Boss lead the elite special forces unit Delta Squad as their sergeant. When the Clone Wars broke out between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Boss took his place in the Grand Army's Special Operations Brigade under Jedi General Arligan Zey, and served alongside his clone brothers in Delta Squad on a number of battlefields, ranging from the deserts of Geonosis, the halls of the RAS Prosecutor, and the streets of Coruscant, to snowy Mygeeto and the the plains of Haurgab. Following the transformation of the Republic into the Galactic Empire, Boss and the other members of Delta Squad—minus squadmate RC-1207, who the squad was forced to abandon on Kashyyyk in the final days of the Clone Wars—served in the new Imperial Army, as members of the Imperial Commando Special Unit, a specialized unit within the 501st Legion tasked with hunting down clone deserters, fugitive Jedi Knights and Jedi sympathizers.

Although this figure was released under the animated Clone Wars line, the figure can still pass as one of the movie like figures as well. It would be nice to see the rest of the Delta Squad redone in this figure form. I never picked up the latest Battle Pack of them as a set. I do have the original seven pack. This is a must have figure even for you non clone collectors. Check out my photo gallery here at DSP of Commando Boss. Be sure to stop by the Forum and leave your thoughts on this figure. Did you find yours in the wild?

2012 TCW09 Chewbacca (REPACK)

To portray Chewbacca for “The Clone Wars,” Mr. Mayhew was not required to don the outfit at all. (“I was doing it in my own clothing,” he said.) However, he did record dialogue for the character, having learned over the years to emulate the blend of bear growls and other animal noises used to create Chewie’s voice. Lucasfilm hasn’t said yet if Chewbacca will return for future episodes of “The Clone Wars,” but Mr. Mayhew said he was happy to have been so closely associated with the character for nearly 35 years. -Source

I personally missed out on finding the original release of this figure in the wild. However, I was thrilled to finally added the animated Chewbacca figure to my collection when Hasbro decided to re-released this figure in the new packagung. I hear that there was a variation though with the bottom portion of this hair skirt having slits to be able to bend his legs. The original not having them. So maybe I will hunt down the original still and add that figure as well to my ever growing action figure collection. Click here to view the gallery I put together for DSP.

Discover The Force: 4 of 12 G8-R3

G8-R3 was an astromech droid in the service of the Royal Naboo Security Forces in 32 BBY. He had the head of an R5-unit on the body of an R2-unit. He was destroyed by a blaster bolt fired by the Trade Federation ships blockading Naboo while attempting to repair Queen Amidala's royal starship.

I have added the Walmart exclusive astromech droid to the Toy Gallery here at DSP. Check out the images by clicking here. Join the Discussion by clicking here.
