By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 12, 2019

The Jet Trooper is a new figure, but what do we know about it?  Not much.  It flies, it's in the movie, and it has a quick-draw attack - and rocker ankles.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,645: Clone Commander Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Possibly at a Walgreens near you, the Clone Commander Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Black Series 6-Inch) looks more like Ewan McGregor than the movie-specific Ewan figures put out in this scale.  He's got a lot of color in his face, which works well as his armor is pretty desaturated.  Is it worth buying this modified Clone Trooper figure?  Yes.  Read on!

New Theme Park Stuff Coming for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 4, 2019

3738 If you can't get enough of paying for parking and waiting in lines, Disney has a special treat for you.  Its Orlando debut of Rise of the Resistance means new ride, new stuff, and new things to fill your suitcase.  The info-tainment piece Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Attraction Merchandise Coming to Disney Parks on December 5 covers some of the shirts, pins, and other doodads - but the nifty vehicle and droid are probably the thing even us snooty, indoor fans will want.

Star Wars: The Even Specialer Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 4, 2019

3737 With the advent of Disney+, it was quickly discovered that the 4K remaster of the original 1977 Star Wars movie, called Star Wars, anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong, had some changes made to it.  The Fox fanfare was there, Greedo had a bit more to say, and it turns out there were several other tweaks and adjustments too.   Bill Hunt and Dave Stewart posted a , a great site you may remember as  being one of the big news and review sites for DVDs back when DVDs were a big and new thing - and they're still doing a fantastic job looking at digital home cinema releases.  If you're an old-school Star Wars fan, and you are, check this out

New Indie Action Figure Shadow Raider - Like Boba Fett, but Not

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 29, 2019

I3736 f you like 3 3/4-inch action figures, the indie world has been a great place to dwell.  Healey Made's Raider is now available in clear green and black, the latter of which has since sold out.  They're $20 and $25, respectively.  Legend has it an old Kenner sculptor worked on these, so you may want to keep your ears to the ground for announcements of future painted figure releases.  An unpainted blue prototype seems to be long gone - I didn't even see it get listed!

If you need custom figure fodder or are looking to scratch an itch, I recommend these.  They're nice toys.

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 26, 2019

You can find the Luke Skywalker (Yavin, The Vintage Collection)  in stores or order online, as it's a Walmart exclusive! I would recommend getting the figure in store - it's the Luke of Theseus with a new head and a few other changes from previous releases.  It just doesn't s hip well in an unprotected plastic sack.  Read on!
