Q&A: Finding Star Wars Figures, Also Picking, Selecting

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 16, 2018

This week in Q&A - Online Shopping and Stores. A lot has changed since 1995! More Solo figures? I can wish. Figure selection has also changed a lot lately.

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. We have two open slots! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,542: Kylo Ren (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 13, 2018

The Force Link 2.0 Kylo Ren is a lot like the one from the first Force Link band last year - but with a different symbol on his boot, and a different sound chip.   You may not need more Kylo Ren figures, but you also might need them all - and this Solo: A Star Wars Story release does meet the "just different enough to make you mad" quota.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,541: L3-37 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 11, 2018

You might have seen this L3-37 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)  around, but maybe not.  It's good!  A heavily modified R3 droid has arms and legs, but you'll ese parts from an old Astromech chassis placed strategically on her body.  It works.  Oh, it works.  Read on!

Q&A: Ship Problems, Star Wars Loses More Luster, and Finding Stuff

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 9, 2018

This week in Q&A - Light Distribution. Guess what kids don't want for Christmas? I'll give you two hints. One rhymes with "noise" and the other rhymes with "blar fours." Toy tracking - well, this is more administrative stuff. Also new Vintage TIE Fighter wings - they might not be worth opening up.

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Our mail bag is empty. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,540: Range Trooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 6, 2018

You know you want the Range Trooper (The Vintage Collection).  But can you find it?  It has a white blaster - the Force Link 2.0 version has black - and tons of articulation.  You'll want to get a few of each to fill out your playsets and dioramas.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,539: Han Solo (Vandor-1, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 4, 2018

This Han Solo (Vandor-1) comes form a boxed set meant as a tie-in release to the home video for Solo: A Star Wars Story but has been in pretty short supply at brick and mortar.  (Order online!)  It's a nicely-textured figure with goggles, a holster, some snow, and nifty boots.   You'll want this one.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Exclusives, Holdos, Vintages, and Sandcrawlerses

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 2, 2018

This week in Q&A - Missing exclusives are missing. You didn't necessarily miss them if no one is trying to sell them to you on the secondary market. Holdo everything - where are the figures we didn't yet get from Comic-Con or Toy Fair? And Vintage Repacks - will the unchanged figures have changes? You bet their packaging will be revised. That's life. We also ramble about the new Disney Sandcrawler at the end.

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Onell Design Lists Pheytooth

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 29, 2018

A mysterious figure appeared in the Onell Design release November 29 called "Pheytooth."  It has a red hue on the graphic, and the last mystery figure was green and called Greeden.  And this is a Star Wars site, so it could be anything.  I wouldn't want to hit a snag making the wrong guess, but it's up for grabs now for $11.  Order one, won't you? These tend to be limited to the low hundreds, and while I can't say I know the run here they tend to disappear in a day or three.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,538: Han Solo (Brown Jacket, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 29, 2018

For years we've had more than Obi-Wan Kenobi, and now we've got more than one Han Solo.  Based on the 2018 Alden model, this 3 3/4-inch action figure is loaded with articulation and may be at a store near you.  We've been getting more new cases of wave 1 in my neck of the woods.  Read on!

16bit.com Figure of the Day - Onell Design Glyos Greeden

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Another off-topic figure, but with some news rolled in.  Onell Design will be holding a drop Thursday night at 9:30 PM EST,  with another new figure that might look somewhat similar to this one in terms of tributes to days gone by.

But from last month, take a look at this Greeden - it's Kenner's Greedo colors mixed with Pheyden's design, giving us all a great tribute to a classic alien action figure.  The next one has not yet been announced, and it will be sold as a mystery figure tonight.  Click here to read about Greeden.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,537: Qi'Ra (Vandor-1, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 27, 2018

This Qi'ra is one of Hasbro's best.  Great sculpt, good deco, and I didn't realize there was anything in front of me but plastic perfection until I got out the macro lens. The lips are painted a little strangely, but to my eyes the figure looks superb.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Repetition, Points of Focus, Crimson Dawn, and Repetition

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 25, 2018

This week in Q&A - Keeping focus. I don't do it, why should you? Crimson Dawn! I'd like some more of them as figures.

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,536: Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 22, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful I found this Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch)  without much of a fight - it's a redeco of the 2013 Stormtrooper with a new head and a cape, but that's good enough for me.  Worth it if you can find one.  Read on!
