Incoming – Sideshow 1/6 Buboicullaar Creature Pack

13 11 2007

Here’s something for Star Wars fans and for any who are galactically curious – the Bubocullaar Creature Pack from Sideshow. Without opening it, I am expecting its contents to be somewhat similar to the Salacious Crumb Creature Pack. That’s basically, lots of plastic molded without any articulation.

Review – Tomy Direct 8″ Diecast Darth Vader

20 10 2007

Here’s a toy that I committed my toy dollar just because it was Darth Vader… and because it was a diecast Vader. It sure looked good in the promo pics I received in the email from the local store. After the shortest of hesitation, I put down the PO and here it is. It’s not frequent that I dig into the 1/6 budget to get a smaller scale product.

Incoming – Tomy Direct 8″ Diecast Darth Vader

14 10 2007

Here’s something unique to grace an Incoming post. It’s Tomy Direct’s 8″ Darth Vader. The cool thing about this fella is that he has a diecast body. Not exactly a 1/6 scale figure, but the diecast content caught my attention. Top it with Darth Vader and I’m all over it! And for a little guy like this, he costs between a Hot Toys figure and a Medicom. Potent little fella isn’t he?

Review – Medicom 12″ Boba Fett

10 10 2007

Here’s a figure taking after an interesting character out of Star Wars. Everyone knows Boba Fett – whether by name or by his distinctive armour. But no one on the original Star Wars movie set could guess that a character with such little screen time would be so enormously popular with movie-goers… or fans of Star Wars.

Incoming – Medicom 12″ Boba Fett

26 09 2007

Here’s an incoming that I had been awaiting eagerly for. It’s Medicom’s 12″ Boba Fett!!! And I found out how excited I was with this figure when I found myself humming John Williams’ galactic tune as I rode out of the mall with Boba in tow. And I did not notice it until I stopped at a red light. Then I thought to myself, “Did I hum when I collected the other Jedi?”. Well. the answer is… no. That’s how much I am look forward to Boba Fett.

Review – Sideshow 12″ Princess Leia as Boushh

22 09 2007

I’ve hunted for a Leia in Boushh disguise 12″ figure even before Sideshow landed the Star Wars 12″ license. Hasbro’s Leia Boushh was my target and it came in a pack of three with Luke and Han. But despite my numerous bids on eBay, I was not successful. Most of the sellers were from the U.S and the U.S buyers usually outbid me easily as I had to factor in shipping charges. Nothing wrong with that. It’s just that I was unable to pose the Boushh armour next to my Hasbro Carbonite Han. With the release of Sideshow’s Leia in Boushh disguise figure, not getting the Hasbro version does not seem so bad now.

Investigates – Boushh: Between the Name and the Race

10 09 2007

While blogging the Princess Leia as Boushh Incoming post the other night, I thought I’ll look up what a Boushh was in the Star Wars universe. I’ve seen and heard this word for sometime now but I never did got around to do some digging into its background. So I put in ‘Boushh’ into Google, hit enter and went for the Wookiepedia link. Lo and behold, Boushh was not really what I thought it would be.
