The folks at Galactic Trading Post have updated with news for everyone salivating over getting their hands on their highly anticipated Classic 3.75″ walls:
The last samples we received, we found a problem with the LED panel. It was shrinking in the mold and so the gap lines were not lining up with other walls. This had further delayed the walls, but we felt it had to be fixed despite additional delays. These samples we are receiving now with have this and clip tolerance changes. We again apologize for the delays, we hope that with these final samples all the kinks will be worked out. We will update you once we receive the samples and have a better timeline from the factory of when we will have these in.
Personal Note: I’ve been waiting over 20 years now for something like this to be made, so a bit of a delay here isn’t going to be the end of the world. It’s great that it really sounds like the 3.75″ scale product will be worth the wait; and those that have the 6″ scale wall sets can already attest to just how amazing these things are. This is factory quality stuff and you can order on their website.

Personal Note: In my humble opinion, these kit bashed repaints honoring the original trilogy blow Hasbro’s 40th Anniversary line out of the water. Imagine figures like these, on vintage-esque cards… ’nuff said.

The auction has since ended, but an amazing 12″ custom Princess Leia figure was recently available on eBay.
This hand crafted figure portrait from ROTJ truly captures the essense of Carrie Fisher’s beauty in ROTJ. Given her recent passing, I couldn’t help but share.

Those of you who watch Star Wars Rebels are more than likely familiar with one of the highlights of Season 2… Captain Rex’s modified AT-TE!
Customizer Raylen has gone to great lengths to customize an AT-TE that would definitely give Hasbro a run for their money if they ever decided to update their Clone Wars version of this awesome vehicle.
Head on over to the forums for a closer look!
The latest Yakfinties Customizing Challenge has concluded, and with over 50 customs submitted, we once again have a fantastic Roundup Report to share.
Check it out and see who is walking away with prizes after the jump!
Customizing perfectionist Evilivo has shared several custom updates over the past few months in our forums, including a group of Phase II Clone Troopers that exemplify exactly how Hasbro needs to approach these army builders should they ever bring clone grunts back into circulations in the 3.75″ scale. Notice how the helmets are not oversized buckets that detract from the figure. Check out his update after the jump!
Personal Note: Nothing Hasbro did from 2010-2012 annoyed me more than the oversized bucket helmets they used on the spectacular VC45 mold Clone Trooper body. Why put such horrible helmets on such a great body? Hasbro admitted as much with our friends at Jeditemplearchives a few years ago… hopefully someday we will see some sort of definitive 3.75″ box set like what is currently being offered in the 6″ scale (or single carded figures, but I wouldn’t hold one’s breath).
The St. Louis ToyMan Show schedule has been released, with the first event coming this Sunday, January 8th.

After hours of aggravation, I was able to get the damn Nerf mechanism on Hasbro’s new AT-ACT finally working.
I don’t even know exactly what I did to fix it, but I guess jiggling it around as much as I did after removing the head screws aligned something that was out of whack. Anyways, more details after the jump!
Today, my son and I eagerly opened the giant package on our front door… I just couldn’t make us wait for Christmas. We had just seen Rogue One togeher over the weekend and this was just icing on the cake (though rather expensive icing).
While my son frantically set up a group of Rogue One rebel figures, I assembled Hasbro’s latest “big thing.” I plopped in the batteries, and turned it on. Watching it walk across the kitchen floor was cooler than I expected. My son’s eyes gazed in wonder… my daughter clapped her hands… “Make it shoot!” she screamed with joy!
So I pressed the “fire” button… the hatch opened… and a sound was made… but that was all. So I opened the hatch, expecting a simple NERF dart jam. But alas, this AT-ACT is dysfunctional. It will not shoot, and the hatch will not close.
For those that are against Hasbro adding NERF features to the Star Wars line, this risk is another reason to be against this sort of feature. Who knows how many of these vehicles will begin to have this problem over time… or even when kids get it for Christmas and can’t even enjoy it for a full minute and end up crying like mine did this evening.
Hopefully this is an isolated incident, but I would be surprised if the one family that has this issue happens with is my family. Please share your thoughts or experiences with this new toy in our forums.
