Revisited today is one of my favorite Mos Eisley Cantina Patrons, which is Momaw Nadon "Hammerhead". He was released back in 1996 and retailed for $4.99. Momaw has 6 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips and he is packed with a Double-Barreled Laser Cannon.

Variations:
• No Warning on front of card.
• Warning sticker on front of card.

Added to our HD Photo Gallery today are all new HD Photos of the 1996 Power of the Force Tusken Raider figure. A fairly decent sculpt from Hasbro, but it has one flaw. The first few runs of this figure was manufactured with 2 closed hands. This caused a problem as he could not hold the included Gaderffi Stick Battle Club very well. Hasbro soon corrected the problem by re-sculpting a new left hand that was fully opened. The right hand remained closed and filled in with plastic.

Variations:
• Closed left hand.
• Open left hand.

I have had a lot of request to revisit The 1995 Power of the Force Orange Packaged figures, so I made a trip to my storage unit today and grabbed them. I am in the process of sorting them out and getting them ready to photograph.

Hard to believe that 19 years have gone by since these were first released. I remember seeing these for the very first time at my local Toy R Us in California, which had a strict policy of 1 figure per customer, due to their popularity. As time went on, these became more available and easier to obtain. My very first figure from this Toy Line I purchased was a Obi-Wan Kenobi.

I will start to post these to our HD Photo Gallery soon. Please be patient.

I usually don't shop at Kroger, but had to run to one today and to my surprise they actually stocked a fairly large amount of Star Wars Toys.

Found on the pegs and shelf were:
• Black Series 3.75" Wave 3 (2 full pegs)
• Black Series 6" Wave 1 & 2
• Saga Legends 3.75" Wave 1 & 2
• Lightsabers
• 2012 Clone Wars 3.75" figures

I was in a rush but before leaving I snapped some pictures with my phone and uploaded them to our Facebook Page if you want to check them out.

Just uploaded all new HD Photos of the 2003 Clone Wars #42 Anakin Skywalker figure. Overall the sculpt looks ok, definitely not one of the worst we have seen. Anakin has 8 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Elbows, Waist, and Hips. He includes a Lightsaber, Headset, 2 Arm Gauntlets, and Bandolier.

Variations:
• Glossy black Tunic and arms.

Variations / Errors:
When this figure was first released, the top of Yoda's Saber Hilt was unpainted. This unpainted Hilt was pretty common, but later on in the run Hasbro started to paint the top of the Saber Hilts with silver paint.

Enjoy all the new HD Pictures!
