Jabba the Hutt's Sail Barge is ready for departure, and today's post is your ticket to ride! Early last year, Hasbro announced they would make a Sail Barge vehicle compatible with the 3.75 inch STAR WARS action figures. But there was a catch.

Remember the TIE Fighter variation from ROGUE ONE, the TIE Striker? It has a sleek, cool design that resembles a TIE Interceptor wing. I recently acquired Hasbro's take on this ship. I love the ROGUE ONE packaging that features AT-ATs and a Death Trooper in the art. The side of the box also has a … Continue reading Hasbro’s ROGUE ONE TIE STRIKER
To go along with the Rocky figures we covered in the last post, JAKKS Pacific made a boxing ring that is quite fantastic. The front of the packaging opens up to show potential buyers the vast scale: And now for a few action shots in the ring: I've had this since '06 or '07 and … Continue reading JAKKS Pacific Rocky Boxing Ring
There have been various ROCKY toys released over the years. The ones I have are the 7-inch-scale figures made by JAKKS Pacific in 2006 and '07.
