Action Figures

Star Wars: The Black Series Val at SDCC

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 19, 2018

3619 The Black Series continues with Val.   She didn't get to do much in the film, but she made enough of an impact to get a toy in a few months!  This 6-inch action figure was previewed Wednesday night in two places.

Star Wars: The Black Series Han Solo in Coat at SDCC

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 19, 2018

I3618 n a heist diorama from Solo: A Star Wars Story, Hasbro showed some rarely-seen new figures including what may be a new Han Solo.  Note his goggles and coat - this figure has not been previously announced.  I assume we'll hear more about the 6-inch action figure and his cohorts (including Val) on Friday.

Star Wars: The Black Series L3-37 at SDCC

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 19, 2018

3616 Lando's droid gal pal, navigator, and future brains of the Millennium Falcon was on display at Comic-Con.  The 6-inch scale The Black Series figure joins Val and others, presumably later this year, and if you're here you can see L3-37 in a diorama or on the display shelves.

Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Yak Face at SDCC

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 18, 2018

3614 Also expected for 2019, this Yak Face was first previewed at Toy Fair.  And here it is in color, in person!  For me. You're not here.

The figure didn't seem to have a visible accessory - so I don't know if it has a Nikto pike, or a Gaffi stick, or something else - but it does look a little truer to the original movie costume.   I like it.

Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Klaatu Skiff Guard at SDCC

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 18, 2018

3612 While we've seen renderings before, I don't believe I've been in the presence of this Klaatu Skiff Guard figure in person.   From The Vintage Collection, this is one of increasingly few new "classic" figures to come from Hasbro since the Mouse ate Lucasfilm.   It should be out in 2019, unless I missed some exciting news.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,499: First Order Flametrooper (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 17, 2018

This The Last Jedi figure didn't make it out to stores, but a small run did get built for Entertainment Earth.  The double-handed First Order Flametrooper (The Last Jedi Line Look) has some color and deco changes, making it a better troop-builder than its The Force Awakens brothers and/or sisters.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,498: Mimban Stormtrooper (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 12, 2018

Today!  The Mimban Stormtrooper (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look) is dirty, but that's how we like it.  We've known Stormtroopers were on Mimban for decades, but this is the first time we've seen them.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,497: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 10, 2018

This Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) is from Solo - and it's almost the same as The Last Jedi.   There's a different sound chip which is still not Mark Hamil, and there's a green Force Link symbol on the foot.  Otherwise, it's arguably not different enough to warrant a mention.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,496: Qi'ra (Corellia, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 5, 2018

This Qi'ra (Corellia, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look) is pretty great - the skirt doesn't prevent her from sitting in Han's speeder, plus she has swivel wrists.  It's something you should buy before it goes away.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,495: Moloch (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 2, 2018

One of the few new alien figures from Solo is Moloch - and he fits right in with your classic figures.  With a staff, a blaster, and a removable mask, this is a gem.  As one of the White Worms, there's a tail under the robes.  Its a heck of a cool design, and I'm seeing this one out and about a bit more lately.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,494: Kessel Guard (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 27, 2018

The Kessel Guard is pretty cool - the helmet looks like a kitchen appliance, the arms remind me of Chirrut Imwe, and it's just generally very Star Warsy.   Plus it comes with Lando, so you should get one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,493: Lando Calrissian (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 25, 2018

It's Lando Calrissian!  He's from a 2-pack in the Solo line that seems to be selling pretty well right now - but you can probably find it if you make a couple of stops on your next toy hunt.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,491: Power Droid (Wind-Up Fight Droids, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 20, 2018

From Disney, the Power Droid (Wind-Up Fight Droids) is pretty big - it might be too big, but it's neat.  It walks and swings its arms with all the precision of the windmill.   It's $9.95 for both figures, so it's plenty cheap.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,491: Luke Skywalker (Hoth, The Last Jedi / Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 18, 2018

Despite the fact that nobody seems to be talking about them, the Solo line has been pretty fantastic.  The Luke Skywalker (Hoth, The Last Jedi / Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)  has a great sculpt with deco that's good, but not perfect, compared to other releases.  (Gloves, rank badge.)  It also has the best ever Wampa.   Read on!

SDCC 2018: The Empire Strikes Back Mynock Hunt

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 13, 2018

3602 Sometimes we get exclusive figures, sometimes we get sneak peeks with exclusive gear.  The STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES HAN SOLO AND MYNOCK figures are a surprisingly fair $34.99 in a big fancy box that recalls the awesome Boba Fett from 2013.   Han has a breathing mask, Mynock, and some other goodies.  The box reads "Exogorth Escape," and if that seems baffling that's because you missed the Knights of the Old Republic comic books that gave a name and backstory to the big space slugs.  Mystery is dead, but the hunt lives on - more pictures and press info after the break. 

It's pretty dang cool.  At this time we do not know if this is the final exclusive or what else Hasbro  has planned - for the last two years, we've been treated to surprise exclusives on the day of the show.   You might not even know what you're missing when you're on the show floor.
