Photo Guide: Bomb Squad Clone & Super Battle Droid

We continue looking at 2010’s Wave 1 of 2-packs with the Clone Trooper (Bomb Squad) and Super Battle Droid.  Enjoy!

Photo Guide: Anakin and Ahsoka in Space

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m going to start up my Photo Guide, one pack at a time!

Today we look at the squabbling duo from The Clone Wars, Anakin and Ahsoka.  This set is from 2010’s Wave 1, where we see them in their Space outfits.  I’ve supplied a generic shot of the package, courtesy of Hasbro, since I had already opened before I started my photography.

New Wave in Stock at HTS

Not having any luck finding the Quinlan Vos wave of 2-packs at retail?  Then head over to HasbroToyShop.com and grab ‘em while they’re in stock!  Even better, use the code “FAMILY2010″ in your cart and you’ll save 25%.  Thanks to Neal at Rebelscum.com for the news.

The Force Unleashed Gets Customized

GH Customs returns with some more creations!  He has focused recently on the crazy popular Force Unleashed characters and created these cool new customs.   Watch for more to come!

 

Wishlist #2: Figures!

OK, so we’ve tackled the vehicles we’d like to see make in Galactic Heroes scale, but now it’s time to get down to the meat of the matter, the figures themselves!  I’m going to open the floor to any idea you guys and gals can come up with, whether it’s characters that have never been in GH form before, or even versions you’d like to see redone.  Use your imagination!  Let’s go with a Top 20 – if you can’t come up with that many, no problem, just suggest what you want in the Comments section.

Fred Meyer Deals

If you’ve got a Fred Meyer in your neighbourhood, head over and check out their deal on Galactic Heroes.  They’re only $4 each, plus there is a 10% off deal on top of that, so it’s worth making the stop!  Thanks to Amy for the heads up.

… And Living in the UK Pays Off Too!

Here’s another shot of the Scout Walker, courtesy of TheToon from TheRumorBuster’s forums!  He’s a resident of the good ol’ UK, so he was fortunate enough to get his hands on it and took some fantastic pics.  Be sure to head over and check them out!  Can you tell this blogger is infatuated with the AT-ST? ;)

Having Friends in the UK…

… Really pays off, particularly for regular reader GH Customs who managed to get his hands on the new AT-ST!  He was kind enough to send us a couple great pics:

Vehicle Wishlist – The Results!

I’ve got to say that I was amazed and impressed with all the vehicles that people want to see made!  So what was the number one choice?  With 16 votes, it was the Republic Gunship!  That certainly makes sense, considering its importance in the prequels and especially in the current Clone Wars cartoon.  But very close behind in 2nd place with 14 votes was the TIE Fighter, the workhorse of the Empire.  The TIE was this blogger’s personal number 1 choice. ;)

Here is the Top 10:

  • Republic Gunship
  • TIE Fighter
  • Sandcrawler
  • A-Wing
  • Imperial Shuttle
  • Star Destroyer
  • TIE Bomber
  • Death Star
  • Landspeeder
  • Y-Wing Fighter (Original Trilogy)

And for the curious, to round out the Top 15:

  • Anakin’s Podracer
  • Grievous’ Wheelbike
  • Bantha
  • Sail Barge
  • Twilight / Vulture Droid  (tied)

Thanks again to everyone that participated, and watch for another wishlist coming very soon.

AT-ST: A Vehicle With No Home?

The bad news for the AT-ST continues.   Now it appears that not only is the Hoth AT-ST Assault set delayed, but perhaps even cancelled as an exclusive with Kohl’s!  A member of the site, Mike, claims he was in contact with Hasbro and they confirmed the deal has fallen through with the US retailer and no longer has an expected release date.  Perhaps this will be actually be a blessing and Hasbro can find a more toy-focused retailer to get this onto the market.  However, please keep in mind nothing is written in stone yet…

I recently attempted to get this site added to the monthly Q&A session that Hasbro conducts with a number of collecting sites, but unfortunately they (kindly) denied us access since it is at its maximum capacity at this point.  So now is the time for fans of Galactic Heroes to request your favourite Star Wars websites ask about the future of the AT-ST!
