Brian's Toy Box

 

This week I will be featuring some products by a company called Royal Selangor. Royal Selangor is a Malaysian pewter manufacture and retailer that was founded in 1885. They have recently had the opportunity to launch their Star Wars collection on the market and Brian’s Toys was one of the first US retailers to get them in stock! The items that we recently received from Royal Selangor are 4-inch and 8-inch pewter figurines. These shiny collector pieces are sure to stand out in any collection.

One of the hottest Royal Selangor items would have to be the Slave Leia Pewter 8-inch pewter figurine. Not only is this piece limited to 5,000 pieces worldwide, it is also a slave Leia! Slave Leia was discontinued by Disney making it difficult to get your hands on any Slave Leia memorabilia. In fact Brian’s Toys sold out of our entire stock of slave Leia items within 1 day of Disney’s announcement to discontinue Slave Leia items. I have no idea how Royal Selangor was able to manufacture this particular Leia, but I'm not complaining.

 

We also have 3 additional 4-Inch pewter figures: Yoda, Boba, and Stormtrooper. These figures are a little smaller, but still have the legendary appeal at an affordable price. The last thing that makes these pieces so great is their packaging. 

 

They come in sleek black boxes that showcase excellence. The top cover is a tight fit so it can be a little more difficult to open so you may have to put forward a little more effort to open.

Check in next week and I will be talking about 1990s Star Wars toy collecting. In particular, I'll be discussing POTF2, Episode I and Saga toy lines.

Just Arrived Sixth Scale Figure from Sideshow Collectibles

"At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last, we will have revenge!” 

From the moment fans first set eyes on Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace he became an instant favorite, as his powerful presence and raw intensity left a lasting impression across the galaxy. 

Starting with a remarkable portrait likeness, Sideshow Collectibles’ Darth Maul 'Duel on Naboo' Sixth Scale Figure captures every detail of the unforgettable villain as portrayed by Ray Park, from his red and black tattooed flesh, to his sinister yellow eyes and crown of horns. Trained as Darth Sidious' first apprentice, the vicious warrior wields his distinctive double-bladed lightsaber with removable blades, ready to seek revenge on the Jedi in an epic duel on Naboo. Crafted on a fully articulated body, and decked out in his multi-layered all-black Sith garb, the Darth Maul 'Duel on Naboo' Sixth Scale Figure will make a magnificent addition to any Star Wars collection!

Sorry I missed last week's blog, we've been super busy around here with plenty of new and vintage products coming in the door! This week we received more Rogue One products to gear up for the premier on December 16th, 2016. Be sure to check in often as we will be continurously be getting in new Rogue One items!

We just received Wave 8 of the Black Series 6” line. As I previously mentioned my favorites are always the 6” Black Series figures as you cannot beat their packaging and articulation.  Even though Hasbro included re-issues the Death Trooper, Captain Cassian, and Jyn Erso, there are still three figures in the wave that you cannot pass up, including Director Krennic, Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader, and C-3PO (Resistance Base). Personally, I think Director Krennic is the coolest because of his slick white imperial military uniform and because I have a good feeling he will have a very important role in Rogue One. 

 

We also received 2 of Hasbro's new masks. The Darth Vader voice changer helmet and the Imperial Death Trooper voice changer mask are both electronic, but the Darth Vader really does make you sound just like the Sith Lord, including movie realistic breathing sound effects.  I had to test it out and it really works!!

 


Finally, we also received the electronic duel 12” Darth Vader and Kanan Jarrus figures. These items are very interactive and would be fantastic for kids.

                                                     

 

Be sure to check back in next week where I will be featuring Royal Selangor and a few of their products.

This week I'm bringing you some newly added Kotobukiya products and filling you in on the backstory of the company.  Kotobukiya is based out of Tokyo, Japan and produces scale model statues, busts, and figures of Star Wars characters and many other lines. Their items are similar to those produced by Sideshow or Gentle Giant, but what really sets them apart is the fac that their items are model kits. Model kits are statues that have snap-fit pieces that can be assembled in seconds without glue or modeling skill. 

 

We don't get Kotobukiya items in too often, but when we do it is always exciting! Below are some of the Kotobukiya kits that we currently have for sale.

 

One of my all time favorite Kotobukiya snap fit models that we currently have in stock would be the ROTJ Boba Fett 1/10th scale.

 

You just can't go wrong with a model kit of the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy! The paint and articulation are flawless with this pre-painted model kit. Boba also comes with several accessories including helmet with detachable neck, 2 wookiee braids, and a magnetic display base for Boba’s feet to clamp down on.  

The most unique Kotobukiya item we have in stock is the gold R2-D2 60th Anniversary Commemorative statue.

 

This piece is especially rare due to its limited release. The gold R2-D2 was presented as a gift to retail, licensing, and media partners to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Kotobukiya, meaning it was never available for retail.This is a definitely a hard to find piece that you won't see available on the market very often.

Check in next week where I'll bring you details about the new Rouge One items we will be adding to the Brian’s Toys website!

Well it’s that time of the year again, Halloween! Star Wars will again have another strong presence this year for children and adults. If you are going as a Jedi or Sith you will always need that perfect accessory and in my opinion there is nothing better than Hasbro’s FX lightsaber. We have 2 different kinds of sabers in stock and the Kylo Ren is one of the newest and most unique sabers on the market.

Kylo Ren has one of the more unique saber designs which includes a saber crossguard. The 3 blades on the Kylo Ren has realistic lightup features and authentic movie sound effects. The hilt is made from real metal and sturdy plastic. When you aren’t lugging around this sweet saber it comes with an elegant display stand. These FX sabers are made out of very durable material so you can lightly duel, but it is not suggested to bash them too hard. We have not done a video review of the Kylo Ren saber, but you can check out our video review to see similar FX sabers in action. This is a standard saber so you cannot remove the blades. The Kylo Ren saber does require 3 AA batteries.  

 

 

We always have plenty of prop and costume replica items to wear or display. Right now we're offering a Kylo Ren helmets by Anovos for pre-order that would go great with the saber. Both the premium and regular version are expected to arrive within the next two months.

 

 


Check in next week where I will be discussing the Kotobukiya company and a few of their items that we just received.
