Created a NEW Character Comparison section !

Click on the Character Variation Comparison Icon and see what differences if any there are between the same movie character. Now side by side, it's easier to see if a missing figure is worth buying or if Hasbro is just trying to milk your buck. :P If you think this is cool - let me know - I am thinking of doing the same with comparisons between original 70's and 90's figures. If enough positive response, I will create that section within the next week or two.


NiubNiub needs your help

Since there are no Targets in Canada I am asking you to help me out so that NiubNiub can have a Y-WING for his diorama. I will pay you cost of ship plus shipping and I will even give you an extra...3 free senate seats for your own senate diorama. To see what they look like just click here. I hope that someone can help me out.


Finally New Character Reviews

Believe it or not, Hasbro Canada has never released TC-14 or any other figure past Adi Gallia for that matter - Some customer support. Anyways, Thanks to Shannon, who was kind enough to get these figures for me, I have posted new REVIEWS for TC-14, R2B1, Queen Amidala Cloth, Anakin Pilot, Falumpaset and AAT Tank. Just Click on the CHOOSE A CHARACTERS top menu button and click on Darth Maul Icon to view the figures list. I am still missing the cloth waves of Maul,Obi, Qui and Swimming Jar Jar. If anyone wishes to help me out, I'll pay for cost and shipping, Let me know. I would be very gratefull :)

Don't forget to send me those pictures of your creations and keep in touch, sometimes your suggestions really help in making a better site - just like the character comparisons. I never would have thought of that by myself. Thank you all once again and don't forget... Tell all your friends and co-workers about the site :) Niubniub

I also have placed my Y-Wing into its proper diorama home. You can see new pictures in Episode 4: Yavin - Hangar. Pictures and reviews of the Y-wing and Pilot will be up this weekend at some point.
