Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,754: Yoda (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 24, 2020

This Yoda (The Black Series 6-Inch) is very tiny and has a bonus second head - also a Luke packaged with it.  You should probably get this 2-pack because Luke has exclusive gear in this pack, which makes the $40 price tag a bit easier to swallow.  Read on!

Target's Carbonized The Mandalorian Returning, Back Up for Pre-ORder

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 23, 2020

3875 Target.com put up a page for what appears to be a new run of the Star Wars The Black Series Carbonized Collection The Mandalorian Toy Figure due early in 2021.  It's a very good figure - click here to read our review from earlier this year.  It's $5 more expensive than the previous release, but it also is cheaper than purchasing one on the secondary market. This is not the full Beskar mold, but rather the late 2019 version with a very shiny finish.

Q&A: Star Wars Stretch Goals, and Exclusive Things

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 22, 2020

This week in Q&A - Stretch goals! Hasbro gave us a lot - but you want more! Elusive exclusives - that's the way it is. Surge overkill - are there just too many exclusives to hunt all at once, too? (Yes.)

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

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,753: General Hux (Celebrate the Saga)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 19, 2020

You're probably ignoring Best Buy's exclusive General Hux (Celebrate the Saga) figure, and that's a shame.  It has one of the very best human likenesses in any of Hasbro's lines, with deco superior to just about anything else at this size.  It's in a boxed set with First Order troopers (and Phasma) too.  Get it while you can.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,752: Clone Trooper (Lieutenant, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 17, 2020

If you are going to Walgreenses, you might be on the lookout for this Clone Trooper (Lieutenant, The Black Series 6-Inch) which uses the sculpt from a few years ago - and not the new 2020 model.  It matches the other troopers you've probably already bought. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Rereleases, Delays, and X-Wings

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 15, 2020

This week in Q&A - rereleases of older figures - I'm not super hopeful, but hey, let's talk. Delays due to COVID - believe it or not, most things are more or less arriving on time. (Doesn't mean you'll find them, of course.) And more Resistance X-Wings - well, I wouldn't get your hope up here either.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,751: Jabba the Hutt (Barge pack-in, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 12, 2020

It took me forever to open my Sail  Barge, but inside it had Jabba the Hutt (Barge pack-in, The Vintage Collection) - which has mostly excellent paint. The eyes have some weird black lines, but the body and head are amazing with some of the best painted Jabba detail to date.  Not bad for a repaint of a Jabba from The Black Series Rancor Pit sit that you already forgot existed.  Read on!

Fan Figure Alert - Cappy Space Legion Lead

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 10, 2020

3874 If you like Glyos or indie toys, Cappy Space has a couple of gems coming up later on Thursday.  At 9:00 PM Eastern, the Cappy Space Bazaar will add Legion Crayboth and Legion Leader Crayboth - which are his next nods to a galaxy far, far away.  The black and white paint could mean they're anybody, but the blue stripes on the sides of the heads are unmistakable.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,750: Jango Fett (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 10, 2020

This is a good example of a reissue, with changes.  While the unmasked face is a tad on the glossy side, the deco and new backpack on Jango Fett (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch) are improved.  It's closer to the first appearance in Attack of the Clones, but not perfect - and it's different enough from the previous release that I don't mind having it.   Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Retro, Mini-Rigs, and More Retro

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 8, 2020

This week in Q&A - Mini-Rigs! I'd love some more. And Vintage-style figures from Disney-era stories are a thing now. We really like The Retro Collection here and hope it has a bright future.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,749: Clone Trooper (Kamino, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 5, 2020

A new mold! You didn't ask for it, but instead of just a straight repaint the Clone Trooper (Kamino, The Black Series 6-Inch) is entirely new - and in some cases  better, and in some cases not.  The limbs no longer have visible pins, which is good - but the elbow and knee armor is a little strange now that it's a separate rubbery piece. The helmet is an actual helmet with a slug head underneath too, leading to some misshapen helmets.  Read on!
