Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,470: First Order Walker Driver (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 9, 2018

From the 4-pack, the First Order Walker Driver (The Last Jedi Line Look) is a great addition to your figure stash - but there's no vehicle for it to pilot just yet.  It's cool though, with added grey stripes to distinguish it from the half dozen or so Snowtroopers you bought since 2015.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,468: Vendor Droid (Gold, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 2, 2018

Gold! The Vendor Droid (Gold, Droid Factory) is based on designs from The Clone Wars and is sold at Disney parks in parts bins.  Should you get one?  Probably!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,466: LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Blue, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 26, 2018

We're less than a month away from Solo toys, but while we wait let's catch up with LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Blue, Droid Factory).  You can put it together at the Disney parks, and yours might look different from mine - but it's blue!  It's cool!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,465: First Order Gunner (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 21, 2018

It's the First Order Gunner (The Last Jedi Line Look)!  He's in The Last Jedi 4-pack hitting now, and looks pretty sharp for a figure with almost no paint.  You'll want a few.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,464: Clone Captain Rex (The Last Jedi, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 19, 2018

Check out the 6-inch Clone Captain Rex.  It's a good one - they put Temura Morrison's face on this animated character, making it the most realistic Clone Trooper with a head of an actor that never portrayed said clone.  It's awesome though.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,462: Rey (Island Journey, The Last Jedi, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 12, 2018

While we're all waiting for information on Toys R Us, you can look at the Rey (Island Journey) 6-inch action figure!  She has a cloth poncho plus a lightsaber, blaster, and staff.  It's nice stuff.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,461: DJ (Canto Bight, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Check out DJ (Canto Bight, The Last Jedi Line Look)!  This is a pretty awesome likeness given the size, although it loses a little scruff in the shrinkening.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,460: Resistance Tech Rose (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 5, 2018

It took her a while to sell down, but Resistance Tech Rose seems to be moving out of a lot of stores now that the Blu-Ray home release is coming up.  The figure has 5 joints and is similar to the much more desirable (but harder to find) super articlated version.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,459: First Order Stormtrooper Officer (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 28, 2018

The Kohl's exclusive First Order Stormtrooper Officer is one new figure in a 4-pack.  It has a new helmet and a Force Link chip, but it looks a lot like the figure from the last movie.  Is it worth spending $50 to get the one trooper?  Probably not.  But I got one anyway.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,458: First Order Stormtrooper Executioner (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 26, 2018

A Toys R Us exclusive - which means it may be marked down at a closing store nearish you - the First Order Stormtrooper Executioner (The Last Jedi Line Look)  was packed in a Force Link 2-pack with a band.  This means that, as of today, you'd have to buy three total Force Link Bands to get all the figures.  (A fourth is coming.)   How does this five-jointed wonder stack up?  Read on!

Hasbro Reveals Vintage Collection Klaatu Skiff Guard

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Like a phoenix rising out of Arizona, Hasbro Pulse seems to have one once more.   The oft-dormant fan site had a bit of a push at the Hasbro Toy Fair press event, and now the Hasbro Pulse Instagram Feed announced a new The Vintage Collection Klaatu (Skiff Guard) action figure render.  

This is the first new version of this figure in this costume since the 1990s, updating one of the original Kenner action figures of old to the modern "super articulated" era in time for Hasbro's new Sail Barge - now with over 1,600 supporters.  And of course I have a lot more to say about this.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,456: Poe Dameron (Resistance Pilot, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 19, 2018

While not a dreadful figure, this Poe Dameron repeats the cardinal sin of The Last Jedi 3 3/4-inch action figures.  It's boring.   Hasbro made two new pilot Poe figures for this movie which aren't substantially changed from the 2015 releases.  Is this pack-in pilot worth snagging?  Read on!

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars Misc Goodies

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3578 And the rest of the non-toddler stuff!   There are 12-inch figures, a new wave of Micro Force just hit in the last week (and can be seen here), plus there are more lightsabers.  The real surprise to me was a smaller Force Link 2.0-enabled Millennium Falcon which is not figure compatible.

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars Solo (and The Last Jedi) Force Link Action Figures and Toys

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3544 Hasbro has a small line of Solo product, and we haven't seen it all yet.   3 3/4-inch action figures will be joined by some returning favorites, while others were rescued by an online etailer.

Some notes:

2-packs include Muddy Han and Chewbacca, plus Lando and "guard." 

Force Link 2.0 syncs with your phone to download more phrases.  It's backward compatible with 1.0, and theoretically could expand for a while now.

Wampa is still coming.  A non-exclusive Mimban Stormtrooper is coming.  Maz is coming.

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars The Vintage Collection 3 3/4-Inch Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3536 Getting through hundreds of images is time-consuming, so let's cheat.  It's time for The Vintage Collection to return like so many seven-year locusts. Here are images from Hasbro's showroom, mixed in with lightly edited tweets from our livetweet Saturday afternoon.  You'll see exclusives, main line items, and even a preview of something for 2019.   Sound good?  Awesome.
