Finished up another revisit today. Here we have The Power of the Force - Commtech Princess Leia figure which was released back in 1999. The sculpt looks pretty good and her lower robe is made of cloth. She has 5 points of articulation which is her Shoulders, Waist and Hips. Her head does not move at all. Leia includes a Sporting Blaster. Enjoy the new photos.
Revisited next, is one of my favorite Power of the Force - Commtech figures. Here we have Admiral Motti. Don't really have any complaints on the sculpt. Motti has 7 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Left Elbow, Waist and Hips. I am really glad Hasbro made his left elbow articulate, so he could reach up to his neck, instead of pre-posing it which Hasbro is known to do. As for accessories Motti includes a Imperial Blaster.
Toys R Us is having a 30% off sale on all Star Wars action figures, play sets & role play. This sale runs form 2/9 thru 2/15/14 and is good online and at local stores. Happy Hunting!
The Power of the Force - Commtech Darth Vader was released in 1999 and retailed for $4.99. The sculpt looks good for 1999, but there are a couple downsides, like his Lightsaber Hilt being sculpted into his left hip instead of being a separate accessory. Also his arms are pre-posed. Vader does includes a awesome accessory though, which is a Imperial Interrogation Droid with Stand.
Variations:• Hologram Commtech Chip• White Commtech Chip.
Enjoy the new HD Pictures!
I am moving on to revisits of the 1999 - 2000 Power of the Force - Commtech Toy Line. To kick it off we have the Wuher figure, which was a Fan Club exclusive and retail for $12.99. The sculpt of this figure is surprisingly great, except for the bar glass sculpted in his right hand. No idea why Hasbro chose to do that, instead of just included a separate bar glass. Anyways he has 6 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips. As for accessories (not attach to him) he includes a Droid Detector Unit.
Variations:• Warning printed on front of card.• Sticker covering warning on front of card.• Warning removed from card front.• Card Back 566864.0000• Card Back 566864.0100

Being a carded collector does have some drawbacks like the yellowing of Card Bubbles, for no apparent reason. Its a known fact that The Power of the Force - Commtech Toy Line was hit hard with this issue. I actually pulled out all my Power of the Force - Commtech figures today and 10 out of 40 cards had yellow bubbles.
Bubbles will yellow if in direct sunlight for a period of time, but all my figures were stored in a cool dark climate, but that was not enough to save them. The real culprit is the chemical makeup of the plastic bubble itself, in which we have no control over. The only thing that can be done is to just pretty much grin and bear it.
"The Empire's propaganda machine is in full effect. Six pieces of Star Wars Rebels "patriotic art" were sent to 2,500 people around the globe and select media outlets, promoting the noble intentions and work of the Empire. These bold, graphic-style cards, urging galactic citizens to accept and even join the Empire, reflect the political landscape of the upcoming animated series".

"Introducing Chopper, a lazy, cranky (if ultimately goodhearted) astromech droid, and the latest character revealed from the highly anticipated Star Wars Rebels animated series. "If Artoo is the family dog," said Dave Filoni, executive producer of the show, "Chopper is the cat." Chopper is an essential crew member of the Ghost, tasked with keeping the starship running and operable for its band of heroes. In reality, thanks to his many "unique" upgrades and customizations, no other alien, human, or droid could handle the job.
