The vintage TIE Fighter vehicle by Kenner is awfully sweet. The wings pop off in distress when you press secret buttons and another button lights up a chin gun and makes a cool laser sound to boot. I didn’t have one of these as a kid but was always deeply envious of my little buddies that did.

This photo raises the question: can little plastic guys under 4 inches tall command fear and respect from literally anyone that crosses their path? Not sure about you, but I’d say the answer remarkably is ‘yes’.

See you at Comic Con!

I remember as a kid really loving the Bossk figure. I don’t actually recall noticing the Bossk character on-screen when I saw Empire Strikes Back in the theater. After all he has no spoken lines and probably enjoys only about 3.2 seconds of screen time. But no matter. For me a Star Wars action figure was a Star Wars action figure, and this one was particularly nice. The 4-LOM character came out shortly after I stopped collecting as a kid, so this p’ugly bounty hunter’s a new-comer for me. I love the irony of his human-fly head finished with a mouthpiece that looks to be straight out of a pesticide respirator. Too funny. And you say you’re looking for a naugahyde cloak? 4-LOM’s got it!
