Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,003

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, February 15, 2013

Under-collected, underappreciated, and cheap, figures like this Ikopi are a cheap thrill.  The little creatures have no articulation but are the only representations of numerous wildlife in plastic.  If you're like me and you loved the designs of The Phantom Menace a great deal, you'll find a lot to like in this small line of little animal figures.

Check out Obi-Wan Kenobi from last year's MTT.  (Which was selling on Amazon for $49!  Not bad for a big vehicle.)  It's a mix of parts from older figures, but isn't necessarily new enough to buy.  The whole package is amazing, but just Obi-Wan? 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,001

I just got back from New York, where snow, being thrown out of a cab, and posting FOTD #2,000 didn't keep me down!  So today you get Nien Nunb, who may be available cheaply online right now.  You'll have to check.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,000!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Welcome to FOTD #2,000!  If you told me back in 2006 that I'd still be writing this column today, I would probably have told you to slap me.  But we're all still here, and we're looking at Jocasta Nu because why the heck not.  This online exclusive is new-ish and has a ton of gear.  

Hasbro Toy Fair 2013: The Empire Strikes Black (Series)

By Mike — Sunday, February 10, 2013

TOP NEWS: "Always in motion, the future is," and for the past 6 months, there has been a lot of big news for the franchise. The announcement of new Star Wars films, changing play habits, and increasing production costs have prompted Hasbro to re-align their strategy for 2013 by cancelling Droid Factory, shortening the retail cycle for the Yoda Line look, and introducing two new action figure assortments with one targeted towards adult collectors and the other towards children.

Toy Fair 2013: Anakin To Vader Demo Video

By Mike — Saturday, February 9, 2013

Here is a demo video of the upcoming Anakin to Darth Vader 12 inch action figure from Hasbro. After viewing this in person, it's easy to see how kids (and even some adults) will get a kick out of its features. The voice changes from Anakin to Vader by attaching the armor and the lightsaber color also switches from blue to red. Check it out after the jump!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,998

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, February 8, 2013

Wait, stop! Don't skip this one yet!  This Yellow R7-Series Astromech Droid is not 2008's R7-Z0.  Nope, it's actually yellower and has a different pattern on the dome.  It's cool!  Really!  Oh, and it's at Disney Hollywood Studios.  So... maybe you can get one.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,997

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 7, 2013

Let's look at Ahsoka in her first and so far only "realistic" action figure. She has 4 lightsabers in all, with 2 lit and 2 hilts.  It's not a bad buy.  Did you pick her up yet? 

Toy Fair 2013: Galactic Hunter Coverage Begins Saturday

By Mike — Thursday, February 7, 2013

It's that time again, and yes, time for another cold and snowy weekend covering the American International Toy Fair in New York City. This is our tenth year covering the show as Galactic Hunter, and this time it feels a little different because we don't know what to expect from Hasbro.

Hasbro: Toy Fair Press Release

By Mike — Thursday, February 7, 2013

Hasbro issues their press release today for the 110th International Toy Fair in New York City. Of particular interest to Star Wars fans are an Angry Birds Jenga Rise Of Darth Vader game and the Anakin To Darth Vader 12 inch action figure.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,996

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Check out Teemto Pagalies.  Not the fancy one for five bucks with all the droid stuff, but the 2012 gift set one likely on clearance at a Toy R Us near you.  Why?  Well, it's got a flag... and goggles that are kinda different.  The paint job isn't bad.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,995

It's Clone Commander Neyo! Initially sold in an exclusive gift set, this unique trooper has a helmet you don't see many other places.  I like it.  Will you?  Probably.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,994

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 4, 2013

Let's look at Clone Commander Colt, the only individually-packaged animated-style Phase II-style ARC Trooper in the entire line.  Why is this?  I have no idea.  I assume Hasbro must hate you all, because these guys are crazy popular and the mold has been painted 4 times so far with no new releases in the last year and change.  He's totally cool and totally worth owning.
