When Star Wars collectors want to find out about the latest and greatest toys, statues, and prop replicas hitting retail, the primary sources of news and reviews are not corporate owned web sites, but sites run by Star Wars fans for Star Wars fans.
While one might expect competition among the various sites, each trying to scoop the other, the truth is the owners and reporters from many sites are friends who see each other annually at conventions, Toy Fair International, and of course Star Wars Celebrations.
Now at Star Wars Celebration VI, six of these fan-created web sites have joined together to bring an exciting new collectible available in the Star Wars Collecting Track Social Area!
I just realized while looking at Sandtroopers’ new TVC reveal that the Royal Guard includes switch-out Crimson Empire training gear. Well done Hasbro.
Upon the reveal of the new Target Exclusive Droid 3-pk by Sandtroopers.com, forums and social media outlets have been abuzz. Forum member JACKOFTRADZE over at JediDefender was quick to point out that Power Droid included in this set is actually a new sculpt and not a simple repaint of a previously released Gonk Droid mold. Based upon the discussions, I whipped up a quick analysis of the differences between this new sculpt and the prior versions to point out just where some of the differences lie.
