Star Wars action figures are awesome! More than just movie toys; they have been a staple in toy aisles for decades, become pop culture icons and are credited for jump-starting the collectability of action figure toys the world over. We here at From4-LOMtoZuckuss.com appreciate what Lucasfilm, Kenner and Hasbro have created so much so that we have dedicated ourselves to covering all things Star Wars action figure related and that’s where you come in! We are seeking out those who share our passion, to share their thoughts and memories of playing with and collecting those amazing little figures from a galaxy far, far away. 4LOMKUSS: Philip to be honest, I doubted that we would have time for this interview because as being a fellow child of the [...]
'What vintage Kenner action figure would you still like to see Hasbro make?' This has been the question on our minds lately. Despite Hasbro being currently focused on producing figures from Star Wars Rebels and the upcoming The Force Awakens we can't help but to think about the figures they have yet to make from the original Kenner line. Hasbro has updated many of the "92" figures from the vintage line but long time collectors and completist know that there are still some figures that a) Hasbro has yet to be do and b) more accurate versions they should do. By the picture below, it should be clear on who our choice is. We dearly want Hasbro to produce an updated non-Special Edition version of Sy Snootles. She has never appeared in [...]
USA Today gives us our first official look at new Star Wars action figures since last October. Ahoska Tano and Darth Vader aka the padawan and her Jedi Master will be coming to the Saga Legends line later this year. Now we know from the Rebels Recon for the season finale that her lightsabers shown here in inaccurate and will indeed be white to represent her non-allegencence to the Jedi nor Sith. These figures look great and we are excited to hopefully see more figures produced from Season 1! Check out Rebels Recon for more info about Season 1 and a peak at art form Season 2:
[UPDATE] - New Rebels figures were revealed via USAToday. Last night’s episode of Star Wars Rebels brought not only another familiar character into the series but the close of Season 1.
