Hey, something new!  It's a big day for new Star Wars, and Hasbro PR just sent us the skinny on a new boxed set.  It is as follows:

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY 3.75-INCH JEDHA REVOLT 4-PACK

(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $24.99/Available: Spring 2017)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,281: Sergeant Jyn Erso (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 30, 2016

Let's kick off this weekend - yes, we're gonna do a bunch of these - with the character whose last name is almost the German word for "first."  The first release of 3 (or more) known 3 3/4-inch releases of our new Rebel hero is Sergeant Jyn Erso, now showing up carded with 7 points of articulation, a working holster, a movable breathing mask, and a non-removable helmet.  And if you pull off her arms, you can see under the poncho.  Don't do that.  But you can see how it looks - just read on!

Disney Parks Have the Star Wars Rogue One Droids You're Looking For

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 28, 2016

If you're planning on being at Disneyland or Disneyworld soon, a whole slate of Rogue One theme park products have been announced for September 30!  The pricing is unknown, but click here to see everything.   A new Droid Factory 4-pack brings you C2-B5 (new), R2-BHO (new), R2-M2 (new), and R5-SK1 - which looks a lot like R5-D4.  I'll have the skinny for you when I (hopefully) pick up my set in October along with (hopefully) R2-B00.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,280: Captain Phasma (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 28, 2016

It's the Captain Phasma 3 3/4-inch super-articulated figure from Walmart?  Have you found one yet?  Probably not - usually the waves hit, but don't saturate for a few months.   Vigilance!   It pays off - it's a good figure if you can find one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,279: Han Solo (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 27, 2016

I'm seeing more of the Han Solo in his Starkiller base jacket around, but not a ton of it.   This is a shame, because it's a great figure.  There's fine printing on his blaster, exceptional articulation, and a pretty good head sculpt.  Should you grab one before the Rogue One crowds start?  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Pilot Hera's Helmet, Poe Redux, and Let's Talk about Rex, Baby

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 25, 2016

This week in Q&A - Hera's new helmet - is it removable? Is Captain Rex going to get a bigger figure? Well, Hasbro hasn't shown it to us yet.

And send in your questions for next week. Read on!

In Case You Missed It: Japan's Star Wars Logo Display Case

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2016

Thanks to our pal Seth, we have been alerted to this fine item.  The  Star Wars Logo Display Case came out in Japan a few months ago and sells for about US $24.  It has room to fit a few figures or small vehicles, or what any collector might refer to as an adorable first day of being in the hobby.   It's stylish and classy, which clashes with the gargantuan toy hordes in our homes and offices.

Press Release: Hasbro Reveals Many New Rogue One September 30 Exclusives

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2016

Hasbro's PR team kindly sent along a press release with many new and some neewish exclusives! More are coming this fall, but for now, here's a look at what you can expect on (or around) Friday, September 30. None of the 3 3/4-inch figure exclusives are listed here, but 6-inch, prop replicas, Nerf guns, and more await you after the jump.

Disneyland - Star Wars Astromech Droid R2-B00 Awaits You

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2016

If you love droids - and let's be honest, if you don't, we can't be friends - you'll be excited and/or irritated to know that another in an ongoing series of cute Disney exclusive carded droids is up for grabs.  Only the second new one this year, R2-B00 is up for grabs at or near Disneyland now - check the stores in that general area and this green, purple, orange, and black droid can be yours for about $12.95.   For those keeping track - so far - as of right now - no new parts in the make-your-own-droid bins have surfaced, saving you all from mild heart attacks for a litle longer.

Saturday - Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Premieres

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2016

In case you forgot, DisneyXD still has Star Wars Rebels and the season 3 premiere is hours away.  And has Grand Admiral Thrawn.  And StarWars.com posted details here if you ignored them earlier because you were too busy playing that AM2R Metroid remake game, and we totally understand.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,278: Princess Leia Organa (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 22, 2016

The only new Leia from the new movie, Princess Leia Organa was a Walmart exclusive that, despite very strange eyebrows, is otherwise not bad.  Cloth bits, a decent sculpt, and better articulation than her outfit can make use of, if/when you find her she's the only game in town.  Hopefully we'll see a General Resistance/Vest version next.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,277: First Order Stormtrooper (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 21, 2016

The First Order Stormtrooper was a pain to find last year when this 3 3/4-inch boxed figure debuted as a Walmart exclusive.  It still is, but it was back then, too.  He's got more joints and less gear than the other 3 3/4-inch releases, so is he worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,276: Rey (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 20, 2016

You might be seeing Rey from Walmart's exclusive The Black Series assortment as enough of the 3 3/4-inch figures shipped that she sat around in some areas.  Of course now that people are looking again, she'll probably go away pretty fast.  Should you go hunting?  Read on!
