Kotobukiya had one of the most stunning booth displays at Star Wars Celebration 2015. Their Art-FX+ display of dozens of Stormtroopers standing at the ready, with Royal Guards and Vader at the fore, was truly a spectacular sight to behold. They also continued to grow this line of tenth-scale statues with their celebration exclusive K-3PO and R3-A2 droid pack. Marjorie and Arnie review those new droids, as well as the Royal Guard Art-FX+ two-pack, in this episode of Star Wars Action News!
Also in this episode, a rundown of the recently announced SDCC exclusives, more news on finding the “cancelled” wave of Droid Factory figures, A New Hope for Hot Toys, and more — it’s all in this brand new Star Wars Action News show!
On this week’s show Flyguy and I discuss the latest collecting news including not one but two waves of TBS 6” figures hitting retail, new details on the TRU/SDCC exclusive Jabba’s Rancor set and a new source in the US for those “cancelled” Legacy Collection figures. New LEGO news leaked this week regarding several sets tied to The Force Awakens and it looks like we’ll be getting gray bricks as far as the eye can see. Disney announced additional info for the next Disney Infinity expansion which focuses heavily on the Original Trilogy and its characters. All of this plus comic news, Star Wars Weekends merchandise, a “leaked” product hitting Mexico from The Force Awakens and more on Episode #64 of The Realm Recap.

Derek W. sends word that those “cancelled” Legacy Collection figures have turned up at retail outside of Go! Calendars. He writes:
Build A Droid wave found in Maine. Just bought the 9 figures left at a small independent discount store called Ed’s Grove here in Waterboro Maine. Quite a steal at only 6.99 each! Sadly the Biker Scout, Tie Pilot and 212th Clone were already gone. But how could I pass up a piece of Hasbro History?
Thanks for the report Derek!
Hot Toys’ line of Movie Masterpiece 12-inch scale figures continues to grow. Luke and Leia have been teased, and recently they shipped their first non-exclusive figure: The Stormtrooper, sold individually and in a two-pack. Andrew has them in hand and is here with an in-depth review.
Also in this week’s show is a discussion of the “cancelled” wave of Droid Factory figures that inexplicably appeared for sale at Go! Calendar stores across the country. Johnathan has them in hand and gives his thoughts, as well as a report of what he’s finding in stores.
With Brock reviewing Paul S Kemp’s new novel Lords of the Sith, Steve the Gingerprince giving a report from Star Wars Fan Fun Days, and Arnie and Marjorie recording live at Wizard World St. Louis, it’s all in this week’s Star Wars Action News podcast!
PROS: Previously thought to be cancelled, this line look was eventually reconfigured to form many of the figures in the first waves of The Black Series as well as the 2013 Amazon Exclusive set. Many collectors preferred this line look so it is nice to get closure on that line that was very short lived. There is absolutely nothing new here so it is very skippable for the general opener/collector.
CONS: At this time, it is unknown how plentiful these cases of figures are so the price for each figure is pretty ridiculous. If you are a packaging/carded completist, this run of figures may ultimately be a hole in your collection.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether these figures are worth adding to your collection.
I popped in to my local Go! Calendars store today per their notification that they received a shipment of the Legacy Collection Droid Factory figures. There are some new facts for those interested regarding this bizarre line. Click on through for the details.
In case you absolutely need these for your carded collection, Calendars.com has posted the complete assortment of “cancelled” Legacy Collection figures for order online.
Thanks to DarthTerrible for the heads up.
Update from reader Bryan
I found a coupon code for 20% off and free shipping which got each piece to about $16 and change after taxes. Code is “OFFERS30”

Following up on Rebelscum’s report about the previously cancelled Legacy Collection Droid Factory assortment from 2013, I hit up my local Go! Calendars | Games | Toys store and found a few of those figures as well. Looks like I just need the Clone Trooper Sergeant and Luminara Unduli to finish off the assortment that caps off the Amazon Exclusive set nicely.
