    Falls for: Jedi mind trick

    Comments: Jedi mind tricks often work on the weak-minded. Such is the case when a sqaud of sandtroopers ask Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi about the two droids hes escorting in a landspeeder. Obi-Wan makes short work of these sandtroopers, and they conclude that "these aren't the droids we're looking for." Luke Skywalker is amazed at Obi-Wans ability to easily fool their pursuers.









    Points of Interest:
  • This Sandtrooper figure is a retooled version of the VOTC Stormtrooper with a new belt and added accessories.
  • Due the torse articulation, the thermal detonator and the survival backpack cannot be worn at the same time. However, the detonator can be stored inside the backpack when not in use.
  • The black-pauldron Sandtroopers are also known as Sandtrooper Corporals.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
