Doctor Aphra Wins Star Wars 3.75 Inch Vintage Collection Fan Vote

As the Star Wars Day festivities continue, fans of the 3.75 Inch Vintage Collection will be in for a treat in 2018 as the winner of the fan vote was none other than Doctor Aphra.  

For those who are aren’t familiar with the character, Doctor Chelli Lona Aphra is a new character that was introduced in the modern Marvel’s Star Wars comics.  She made her debut in Marvel’s Darth Vader comic series in 2016 and quickly became a fan favorite character in the new expanded universe.

Seeing as I just recently finished the main Vader story about a month or so ago I am quite excited to see a release of Doctor Aphra in the Vintage Collection.  Hopefully she will also be released in the 6 Inch Black Series as well.

Review: Star Wars Droid Factory 2017 C1-10P “Chopper” Review

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Today we will be looking at the Droid Factory C1-10P “Chopper” figure that is exclusive to Disney Land Parks. C1-10P Chopper is a fantastic release in the Droid Factory line, which is a highly appreciated update to the character in 3.75 inch form.  The Hasbro figure was an okay figure, however this release proves how some extra effort can go a long way.  The articulation is impressive for a small astromech droid and I was quite impressed with the final product.  If you are fan of astromech droids or Chopper than I highly recommend hunting one down.

Review: Star Wars 6 Inch Black Series 40th Anniversary Legacy Pack

Hello Heroclub, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Today we will be looking at the Star Wars 6 Inch 40th Anniversary Pack with Darth Vader. Finally having the Star Wars The Black Series 40th Anniversary Legacy Pack in hand I can personally say that it is a fantastic display piece for the 6 Inch Black Series figures. The included Darth Vader is also a great update to the character and I personally like it much better than the Empire/ Return of the Jedi version. While the actual display itself could have been made better it still looks really nice. If you are fan of the Star Wars 6 Inch Black Series figures and also the vintage style packaging than I highly recommend it.  I got this at my local target for $39.99.
