This one’s for RRS… Dunno if he’ll see it though.

TIE Pilot figure review.

That or he's pimping himself to get the money to order a case of this figure.

Sean Teeter does cool commentary photos like that on all his reviews. Some are stupid. Some are really great.

It's funny.

Thanks for the site. I don't buy figures anymore, but it's cool.
The original Star Wars trilogy: Our cultural history deserves to be preserved and should be available to the public like all great works of art!

I don't buy much either. The only one I've bought this year was a Hellboy for my office. But I like to read his site to hear what people have to say.

You got a link for a review of that Hellboy figure? Who makes it?

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Mezco. Newer company that is really making great strides of late. Here's the link to the toy review of Series 1 of Hellboy toys.

My Hellboy is the coatless one pictured in the review. Except that mine has the snarling head sculpt of the jacketed Hellboy. Dunno how that one happened.

I kinda did, too. But my local comic store only had the unjacketed and I wanted him right then and there so I bit the bullet and bought this one.

Here are a few more funny SW toy reviews. I love all the photoshopped commentary by Admiral Ozzel...

There have been several actually. Mostly the 12". I think the most recent was the S-Mart Ash with him in his S-Mart clerk shirt.

More new figs. Madine, AT-ST Han Solo (?!?!), and General Calrissian. I like the comments on these figures both in the review and the photo. Take note of the Photoshop comments made about Han.
