CollectionCorner – Sabine Wren Black Series Figure Review

Out of all the characters from ‘Star Wars: Rebels’, Sabine is the one who got some of the best character development throughout the whole series. The quick witted, teenage Mandalorian graffiti artist turned heads with her brightly coloured armour and explosive hobby which makes her more than perfect to be immortalised in 6” of plastic.Continue reading “CollectionCorner – Sabine Wren Black Series Figure Review”

The High Republic – Where’s the Merch?

In 1996, Lucasfilm tried something that was pretty ballsy at the time, so ballsy in fact that it has left an impression on fans the world over. They released a movie… without the movie. ‘Shadows of the Empire’ was a phenomenon, a cross-media event that told the story between ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and ‘ReturnContinue reading “The High Republic – Where’s the Merch?”

#CollectionCorner – Chopper (C1-10P) Black Series Figure Review

Whilst Hasbro have had a hit-and-miss success rate of getting figures to look like their on-screen counterparts (just look at every Poe Dameron figure ever), Droids, Troopers, masked characters have always looked amazing This is Chopper’s second ‘Black Series’ release, and this is a repack of the first, with the same accessories and base thatContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Chopper (C1-10P) Black Series Figure Review”

#CollectionCorner – Hera Syndulla Black Series Figure Review

Whilst you could say that making a life-like figure based on an animated character could be hard to do, an easier thing would be to translate an animated alien character to a life-like action figure. A “life-like” Hera Syndulla has been done before. This is her second outing as a Black Series figure, we haveContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Hera Syndulla Black Series Figure Review”

#CollectionCorner – Kanan Jarrus Black Series Figure Review

When I decided that ‘The Black Series’ figures were something I was going to get into, I spent some time figuring out where to start other than a Rey and Kylo from each of the Sequel Trilogy as well as a Han Solo from ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ and a the Jedi Master LukeContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Kanan Jarrus Black Series Figure Review”

#CollectionCorner Lando Calrissian ‘The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary’ Black Series Review

“Hello, what have we here?” When I dove into ‘The Black Series’ figures and started getting the 40th Anniversary series for ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ I debated buying the Lando figure. Had to had not long released a Lando from ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, which looked pretty good in terms of the sculpt and theContinue reading “#CollectionCorner Lando Calrissian ‘The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary’ Black Series Review”

#CollectionCorner – The Armourer Black Series Review

This was a lucky purchase at the time, I found it in the aftermath of Christmas on Amazon and got lucky when I found it for a pretty good deal (just under £20 including postage). I had been eyeing her up for some time, especially after missing out on the Convention Exclusive version, which, whenContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – The Armourer Black Series Review”

#CollectionCorner – The Mandalorian (Beskar Armour) Black Series Figure

What a beautiful figure! What amazing packaging! It’s so beautiful! This was one of those additions to the collection that just made my day when it arrived from Star Action Figures (mere days after the influx that was the whole set of ‘Rebels’ figures). The Black Series figures have always had a high level ofContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – The Mandalorian (Beskar Armour) Black Series Figure”

#CollectionCorner – Trouble on Tatooine Lego

After the struggle that was acquiring ‘The Razorcrest’ (for my wife anyway), I was cautious when going in for this one, mainly due to the shortage of Lego we’re seeing at the moment due to COVID. But as I kept my eye on this set, waiting to have the necessary funds available I thought IContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Trouble on Tatooine Lego”

#CollectionCorner – The Razorcrest Lego

It’s with extra special thanks to my wife Sara that this post is possible. After hunting online for this in all the usual places (Lego, Amazon, Smyths Toys) and coming up empty handed in the run up to Christmas, I had resolved myself to the fact that I wasn’t going to be getting this setContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – The Razorcrest Lego”

#CollectionCorner – Summer 2021 Lego Rumours

Thanks to the always informative JediJacPenguin, recently updated with some exciting looking sets, which at this point are rumours, and what’s exciting, a couple of these were even on my recent Mandalorian Lego Wishlist.

#CollectionCorner – The Mandalorian Lego Wishlist

With two seasons of ‘The Mandalorian’ under our collective belts, I can’t help but wonder if, next year, we’ll be seeing some new Lego sets based on the series. At this point we’ve got four sets, the AT-ST Raider, The Razorcrest (or The Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport), The Child Buildable Character and Trouble on Tatooine.Continue reading “#CollectionCorner – The Mandalorian Lego Wishlist”

#Collection Corner – 501st Legion Clone Troopers Lego

I held off on buying this for quite a while, originally feeling that there were plenty of other ‘Clone Wars’ vehicles we could have gotten instead of another AT-RT and a Speeder Bike, but sometimes those sets you don’t get excited for become a saving grace. After a pretty rough week, mental health wise IContinue reading “#Collection Corner – 501st Legion Clone Troopers Lego”

#CollectionCorner – Winter 2021 Reveals

#CollectionCorner – Winter/Spring 2021 Lego Rumours

Thanks to sites like BRICKFANATICS, the rumours of the next couple of waves of Star Wars Lego has been released and I am suitably underwhelmed. Three Microfighters sets, Millennium Falcon, Tauntaun vs. AT-AT and an unnamed set. I own two Microfighters, The Ghost and Kylo Ren’s Shuttle, and unless these come with a mini-fig I’mContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Winter/Spring 2021 Lego Rumours”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Brick Headz The Mandalorian and The Child

My shameless need to buy products from ‘The Mandalorian’ has finally hit a moment of disappointment. Having not gone down the Lego Brick Headz collecting route until now, I feel like this purchase was either incredibly impulsive or a much needed revelation that not all Star Wars Lego is good. When they were first announcedContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Brick Headz The Mandalorian and The Child”

#CollectionCorner – Droid Escape Pod Lego Review

This was one of those sets that I overlooked in my early collecting days, I was more focused on the larger sets in those waves, but when it was offered at a decent price on Facebook Marketplace, along with a few other sets I went for it. As this is a second-hand set, I canContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Droid Escape Pod Lego Review”

#CollectionCorner – Imperial Troop Transport Lego Battle Pack

This was one of those sets that I missed out on as I started collecting Lego again. Based on the vehicle from ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ which in turn is based on an original concept that Kenner produced in the 70’s and 80’s as part of a set of smaller vehicles. It also recently made it’sContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Imperial Troop Transport Lego Battle Pack”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Millennium Falcon (2019 Version)

When it was initially rumoured that we were getting a third Falcon in five years I did wonder if Lego were just putting some placeholder sets out for ‘Triple Force Friday’. That first wave of ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ sets were pretty much a bunch of updated/upgraded sets (other than the Pasaana Speeder Chase). WhenContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Millennium Falcon (2019 Version)”

#CollectionCorner – The Clone Wars Season 7 Black Series Figures

Hasbro recently announced, via IO9 a new batch of ‘Black Series’ figures, all of which are based on characters from ‘The Clone Wars’ Season 7 story arc, ‘The Siege of Mandalore’, and as this is the first announcement of new figures since I started collecting them, I’m pretty excited, and I can safely say thatContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – The Clone Wars Season 7 Black Series Figures”

#CollectionCorner – The Black Series Expansion

As followers of the Blog will know, I am a big collector of Star Wars Lego and Funko POP! Figures, and for a time that was enough. In my collecting past, I used to get the ‘Power of the Force 2’ action figures in the 90’s, and those are stashed away in the shed, buriedContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – The Black Series Expansion”

#CollectionCorner – Poe Dameron’s X-Wing Starfighter (2020)

Another year, another X-Wing. It’s the fourth variation of the same ship since the first Force Friday back in 2015, which was the previous incarnation of Poe’s X-Wing (the black and orange one). When this was announced/leaked I was disappointed, the majority of the Winter 2020 Wave felt like a bunch of updates with veryContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Poe Dameron’s X-Wing Starfighter (2020)”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Sith TIE Fighter

I’m not going to lie, I was really pleased when we found out about the TIE Dagger in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’, the design was originally developed for ‘The Force Awakens’ and can be seen in ‘The Art of The Force Awakens’ book in a space battle with the Millennium Falcon and the fact thatContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Sith TIE Fighter”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Obi-Wan’s Hut

Continuing the fantastic (unofficial) series of ‘home’ sets which started with ‘Ahch-To Training’ and followed by the latest version of ‘Yoda’s Hut’, we now have a new set based on ‘Obi-Wan’s Hut’ from ‘A New Hope’. The box contains two numbered bags and the instructions. There are no stickers included in the set, there onlyContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Obi-Wan’s Hut”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Duel on Mustafar

There is something about these ‘Duel on…’ sets that I just love. The ‘Starkiller Base’ one was so well done that as soon as I heard about one based on the Anakin/Obi-Wan duel I knew it was a sure-thing for the collection. Luckily, in this early part of the year I generally don’t have toContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Duel on Mustafar”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 10

And then it was built. After two months (of intermittent) building I completed this immeasurable Lego set. First up is the Conference Room where the Imperial leaders meet to discuss the missing plans as well as two of the dividing walls. The table doesn’t secure to the base but can be used as a storageContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 10”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 9

Here we go, the penultimate entry into the the Death Star build. I imagine this was how Krennic felt close to the events of ‘Rogue One’. This section is essentially the floor of the top section with a few added bits here and there. The first part is the floor that covers the Super WeaponContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 9”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 8

Well, the Death Star weapon is now fully operational. If the construction of the super weapon went as easily as this then the Empire would have done more damage much quicker. The first part of the section is the base of the weapon, the middle is full of gears and rods. One side has aContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 8”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 7

This section shocked me. Honestly, I sat down to start building and thought to myself, ‘Do one section tonight, will take about an hour.’ Wrong! Took two hours, which wouldn’t be a problem, but I started at about 11pm. So yeah, I was knackered the next day, thank the Maker it was a weekend. TheContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 7”

#CollectionCorner – Mandalorian Battle Pack (2020)

When this set was first announced late last year, I, and possibly many others thought this set would have something to do with ‘The Mandalorian’ series. But when the images were first released and I found out my hopes were not quite on the ball, I was not disappointed. Why? Because these mini-figs look amazing.Continue reading “#CollectionCorner – Mandalorian Battle Pack (2020)”

#CollectionCorner – Star Wars Lego Busts a Bust?

This morning I woke up and found that The Brothers Brick had put put images for two of the three sets coming out in a couple of months. The Stormtrooper and Boba Fett Busts. First up is the Stormtrooper Helmet, and wow, does it look bad. The face looks too small, the ‘tube’ at theContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Star Wars Lego Busts a Bust?”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Sections 5 and 6

Section 5 Halfway there!!! The fifth section is THE MIDDLE. The whole of the middle floor is built in this section and it’s done in four quarters. The different sections are (anti-clockwise from top left) The Emperor’s Throne Room, Docking Bay, Superlaser Control and finally the Detention Block. The Docking Bay has a hole inContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Sections 5 and 6”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 4

When I fished out all of the bags for Section 4 I had a mild panic. There were only three bags as opposed to the usual (so far) four. Once I opened them all up and sorted the pieces into a somewhat ordered set of piles I realised why, this Section isn’t a huge constructionContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 4”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 3

“What a wonderful smell you’ve discovered!” The third section has been completed and we get the main part of one of the most iconic scenes from ‘A New Hope’, that’s right, the Trash Compactor. The first part of theirs section gives us part of the back wall of the Compactor with an open door andContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 3”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 2

Unlike Moff Jerjerrod, I don’t feel like I am behind schedule… Section 2 builds the second level of the Death Star, which includes three new rooms and a large space which will become clearer later on. I build this section in two Building Sessions, both of around an hour each (roughly) The first building sessionContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 2”

#CollectionCorner – May 2020 Lego Releases

Thanks to Brickfinder.net, the list of upcoming Star Wars Lego sets is here and it’s… Pretty disappointing really. Lego is starting to busts of character helmets, it’s been confirmed that there is going to be an Iron Man bust and now we’re getting a a Stormtrooper and Boba Fett busts. I don’t feel like IContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – May 2020 Lego Releases”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 1

For years I had been after this set. No word of a lie, when it was released it went straight to the top of my wish list. And every time it dropped in price or went into a sale it was always a really inconvenient time so I basically became resigned to missing out onContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 1”

#CollectionCorner – Sith Troopers Battle Pack

The Winter 2020 Lego Sets are here and those Amazon Vouchers aren’t going to spend themselves so I went ahead and picked up my first foray into the new Wave of Star Wars Lego. As with all Battle Packs, the box contains two unnumbered bags and the instructions and no stickers. First up, my mainContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Sith Troopers Battle Pack”

#CollectionCorner – Resistance Y-Wing Starfighter Lego

One of my favourite Star Wars Lego sets in my collection is the Y-Wing from the second ‘Rogue One’ wave. The details are phenomenal and the screen accuracy is out of this world, so when they announced that we were getting a Sequel Era version I was excited and to have it as part ofContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Resistance Y-Wing Starfighter Lego”
