We've uncovered a card back variation on the North American Tri-Logo packaging for the Rebels Saga Legends 3 3/4-inch SL01 Stormtrooper action figure. The version we originally added to photo archive had a printed product/assortment number, while this other version has a sticker like the SL12 Snowtrooper. Based on Date stamps, the sticker and the product's updated product number (from A8644 to A8655) went into production on September 2, 2014.

A crazy-cool lot of mint on card classic Kenner Star Wars figures is up for auction and there are less than two days left. Like all eBay Today entries, this one is being linked to look at and not necessarily to be bought, but if you are considering bidding on this lot do make sure to note the seller's low (albeit positive) feedback and lack of current activity before moving forward. It is always best to be an informed buyer when we're talking about auctions like this. Follow the link above to see the lot we all wish we could find stashed away safely at our grandparent's house.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
