STAR WARS - Plush Chopper Astromech Review

 Today's Toy Review is brought to you by Entertainment Earth, shop 
Bring Hollywood Home!

Wouldn’t it be nice to have your very own Astromech Droid? Now you can and no worries about the attitude from Chopper. Yes he’s made up of spare parts but this version of the cranky droid is a much softer version. Who knows? Maybe you’ll warm up to him.

Here are some of his more technical specs:
Chopper stands about 7.5 inches tall.
From side to side about 6.5 inches.
Front to back about 3.5 inches.

Chopper is intended for children 3 years and up. Of course he isn’t as sleek as R2D2 but he is soft. The material is sturdy and I’m sure will pass the toddler test. It’s even machine washable. It’s great that even though it is a plush toy, it stands up on it’s own. The antenna isn’t straight but that is minor for those that play with the toys.  Some collectors may not like that the ‘saucer’ portion isn’t straight. This chopper is a great addition to any Star Wars plush collection. Check out the pictures below and see for yourself. You can order the PLUSH CHOPPER HERE from ENTERTAINMENT EARTH!

STAR WARS - Plush Star Destroyer Review

 Today's Toy Review is brought to you by Entertainment Earth, shop  
Bring Hollywood Home!

How about taking a Star Destroyer out for a test drive? We got to do that, in a sense. Of course, this Star Wars Star Destroyer was super soft, it makes you rethink how tough is the dark side.

Some technical specs you may want to know are:
From top to bottom is about 3.75 inches tall. 
It's about 5.25 inches from the widest section of the Star Destroyer sides. 
The tip to the rear of the Star Destroyer is 8 inches. 

This is a perfect way for kids from 3 and up to pilot their own Star Destroyer.  The fabric is durable and yet soft enough to put the entire ship in a force choke hold. Looking to take flight? Make sure to order the PLUSH STAR DESTROYER HERE from ENTERTAINMENT EARTH!

KORVAC SAGA #1 Pits Guardians of the Galaxy Against Avengers in the WARZONES

Direct from Marvel...

KORVAC SAGA #1 Pits Guardians of the Galaxy Against Avengers in the WARZONES!

This June, one of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy’s greatest foes returns to the fore. Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at KORVAC SAGA #1 – a brand-new Secret Wars series from critically acclaimed writer Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians 3000) and rising star artist Otto Schmidt! In the Forest Hills domain of Battleworld, Lord Michael Korvac governs over all, ruling with an iron fist, keeping his subjects in line by any means necessary. Yet tensions are rising in his corner of Battleworld. Full-scale war with neighboring baron Simon Williams and his squad of Avengers is all but assured. Korvac and his royal guard – the Guardians of the Galaxy – stand at the brink of destruction from within and without. Escalating border conflicts and chaotic threats from beyond the Shield threaten all they hold dear. Worst of all, a dark madness is spreading throughout the population, twisting and manipulating residents of Forest Hills into monsters.

Now the classic Guardians of the Galaxy – Major Victory, Starhawk, Charlie-27, Yondu, Nikki and young Geena Drake must track the source of this evil before it corrupts Forest Hills and all of Battleworld! Yet even if they stem the coming darkness, will they be strong enough to stop Wonder Man and his Avengers? The answers lie within this June as KORVAC SAGA #1 explodes into comic shops and onto digital devices!
